A message from Ann McMillan Murrah to my fellow classmates:
*** Let’s accomplish something big together!!***
Responding to the joy we felt in gathering together last month – in person and/or in our e-community - and remembering our classmates listed on the “In Memory” page, let’s build the Class of 1959 Scholarship Endowment. I have sent a check for $500 to start the fund toward the endowment minimum of $21,000. Please join me! Give big ($5900?) or not so big ($59?). But please give. This will be a great way to express your gratitude at this Thanksgiving season, for friends and faculty and fine experiences at DOOP.
You can go online to make your contribution: oprfhs.org, then Alumni/Development, then click on the link to the Scholarship Foundation. Be sure to indicate that the Scholarship Name is Class of 1959.
Or you may send your contribution to
OPRFHS Scholarship Foundation
Attention: Business Office
201 N. Scoville Avenue
Oak Park, IL 60302
Again, be sure to indicate your check is for the Class of 1959 scholarship.
When we reach our goal, a scholarship in the name of our class will be awarded each year. You can find more information about the Scholarship Foundation on the high school web site or in the papers you brought home from the reunion. Email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
