Once again, thank you for your ongoing, extremely generous, financial support of my (awesome) high school education at Arlington Catholic.

My mom and I are, of course, are forever grateful that you, an alumnus of AC, are enabling me to share in this amazing experience of strengthening my mind, body, and spirit. Thanks to you, I can earn the tools to work toward having a bright future and a memorable high school career. Both academically and athletically, I am doing great so far, and I love the feeling of community ... whether walking down the halls, going on a club field trip, going to church or Campus Ministry group, or playing sports with my friends. Someday, I hope to be able to repay this priceless gift and treasure you've chosen to "pass forward" to us!Read the rest of the letter here.

Deacon Frank, our friend and confidante at St. Pat's, connected us with Ryan Skinner, who wanted to make a true and lasting difference in someone's life.That someone turned out to be me. My mom and I always prayed that I'd be able to attend a Catholic high school, but with our tight financial circumstances, scholarship money was our only hope.Read the rest of the letter here..
