Alice Dewhirst '78 Ursano
I have recently revisited my trust. My children are now adults, and my concerns have changed. When they were young, I worried about who would take care of them and did I have enough money to provide them with a Catholic education? Now I look at my adult children and think, how can I help them plan for their future, and what legacy do I want to leave them? I am not only concerned with the money they will receive, but the values I will leave behind.
My trust includes Presentation High School. I want my children to remember how I valued and believed in education, and how fortunate they were to receive a Catholic education. More importantly, I want Presentation to be here for years to come. Continuing the tradition of an all-female education is so important to me. It enables young women to explore who they are and what they can become with confidence and self-esteem.
