Walsh Jesuit is now Accepting Applications for the 2014-2015 Alumni Service Corps.

The Alumni Service Corps is a nine-month program covering one academic year, and is available to graduates of Walsh Jesuit High School.

The program will provide each selected participant with a year dedicated to time in individual discernment and in community, and will enable those Alumni the opportunity for growth spiritually and professionally. During this year, Service Corps members will serve at Walsh Jesuit in collaboration with other men and women who share a commitment to Jesuit education and spirituality.

In the past few years, Service Corps members have worked in Campus Ministry and the Labre program, tutored, substituted, and helped at school events, monitored retreats, assisted with various athletic programs, and participated in the life of the school in many other ways.

Qualified Service Corps members are also eligible for possible stipend and housing accommodations.

50th Anniversary Alumni Directory: In conjuction with the school's 50th Anniversary, Walsh Jesuit has partnered with Harris Connect to produce an updated Alumni Directory.

Please help us make this publication full of the latest information about you and your fellow Warriors!

If you have any such items and would be willing to lend them to Walsh Jesuit for the year of our 50th Anniversary, please email our Alumni Director, Jason Ruegg '96.




SUPPORT FOR YOUR SCHOOL IS NEEDED

This year, there are nearly 400 students at Walsh Jesuit High School who would not be able to attend without the very generous financial support of our Alumni Community, parents and friends of the school.

And while we were able to award more than $1.6 million in tuition assistance to very needy students this year, there was another $700,000 needed that we were not able to meet.

As the school draws nearer to its 50th Anniversary, we are calling out to our entire Alumni Community to give back to the school that provided so much to all of us while we were students here.

Help us to make sure that the same exceptional education that we received can be made available to any deserving student, regardless of their background or financial situation, by giving to one or more of the programs below:

RICCO LEGACY FUND

 

 1932-2009

In honoring the wishes of the late Bill Ricco, every dollar of this fund will offer substantial tuition assistance - each year - to deserving Walsh Jesuit students. No gift is too small, and every gift helps a student follow in our footsteps.

Please consider a gift to the Ricco Legacy Fund.

CLASS-SPONSORED SCHOLARSHIPS

Walsh Jesuit is working to expand the Class-Sponsored Scholarship program which has been pioneered with great success by alums from the Classes of 1994 and 1999.

This is a great way to come together as an Alumni Community and provide support for the next generation of Men and Women for Others. Through a Class-Sponsored Scholarship, Alumni Classes can sponsor a very deserving student as they follow in your footsteps and continue the exceptional tradition of Walsh Jesuit.

If you are interested in helping to start or support a Scholarship for very deserving WJ students in your graduating class’ name, please email or call Jason Ruegg ’96 at (330) 929-4205 ext. 177 for more information. 2013-2014

ANNUAL FUND - SET THE WORLD ON FIRE!

100% of Annual Fund dollars raised will provide direct support for our students. Our mission is to provide students from all economic backgrounds an opportunity to attend Walsh Jesuit. Without your support, we would not be able to form "men and women for others."

There are many ways to give to the Annual Fund. For more information, or to make your donation online, CLICK HERE
