Dear Scecina Family,
I come from a long line of proud Scecina graduates. My aunt and uncle were members of the first graduating class in 1957 followed by my dad in the Class of 1962. My three older brothers preceded me, graduating in 1987, 1989, and 1993. I graduated in 2005. As a family, Scecina is a tie that binds us. Beyond that, Scecina serves to connect thousands of friends and graduates, from all walks of life, spread throughout the country. To the thousands of friends and alumni out there, Scecina is our school.
Among the many things I am grateful for, one is the opportunity I had to attend Scecina. I received a terrific education — one that has served me well in college and beyond. Equally important, I made lifelong friends and became part of the larger Scecina community. I’m certain my experience is not unique.
After leaving Scecina, I was the typical “broke college student.” Still, I decided to donate a few dollars each month to Scecina. It wasn’t much — they weren’t going to name a wing of the school after me — but it was important to me, and my gift was valued by Scecina. I’ve been able to increase my contributions over the years and they are valued just the same. This goes to show that a contribution, any contribution, is valued and supports our school. When I receive updates on renovations to the building, inspiring teachers, and student accomplishments, I know my contributions are being put to good use.
Many families need assistance to cover the cost of a Catholic education. For decades, the generosity of the Scecina community has helped ensure that the school’s doors are open to all. Your support would give more students a chance to receive the same great education and make the same lifelong friends that we did. Please join me in making a gift in support of our school.
A lot has changed at Scecina over the years. The building may look different, the names and faces may have changed, but I remain convinced that something special happens within those walls on Nowland Avenue.
All the best,
Nick Felts ’05
