Seniors Support Future Hilltoppers
Every graduating class at St. Edward’s has the opportunity to make an investment
in the education of future Hilltoppers — just like previous alumni of St. Edward’s
have invested in the Class of 2011. Remind your senior about the importance of giving back
through the Senior Gift Campaign. The campaign supports The St. Edward’s Fund, which provides
vital scholarships and operating capital for each academic year.
