Dear Ladywood Supporter,
A few months ago, we graduated a wonderful group of young women who excelled in academics, athletics, and in character. Whether earning 6.8 million dollars in scholarships, partnering on an event with Special Olympics, or taking the lead in our campus ministry program, these young women now grace the campuses of colleges throughout Michigan, the Midwest, in Atlanta, and on the East coast.
Likewise, our current students continue to impress us with their ambition, their selflessness, and their compassion. Although we are only a few months into the 2017-2018 school year, our students continue to reach admirable accomplishments. Our senior class has one student who earned a perfect score on the ACT and another senior has qualified for National Merit Semi-Finalist status. Our Varsity Field Hockey team recently captured their first Catholic League Championship since 2011. Lastly, their drive for giving back to others, as well as our school, remains evident in their commitment to our faith in their leadership in planning Kairos retreat, Mission activities, and our all-school service day at Cass Community Social Services in Detroit.
Although I have merely skimmed the surface on reasons to celebrate Ladywood, know that these highlights are possible due to the generosity of our loyal Ladywood supporters. In the past two years, we have invested $190,000 in school upgrades and facility enhancements. A few examples:
As everyone knows, tuition alone does not cover the cost to educate a student at Ladywood. Yet, with your unrestricted support, we will continue to strengthen our current programs, add new ones, and make facility improvements. Therefore, with your support, we can reach our Annual Fund goal of $100,000 for this school year. For together, we can accomplish more than we could ever do alone. Go Blazers!
