As a new member of the WIC board, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to chair this year’s Annual Fund.
Throughout the pandemic I have been amazed by the dedication I have seen from teachers, staff and senior leadership to continue to bring a high standard of education to the children of West Island College. It has been inspiring to see the team reach new levels of creativity, engagement and determination. I have never been more proud to be a parent at WIC.
That is why it is so important that we continue to engage the Annual Fund this year. In addition to the support it offers key rejuvenation projects throughout the school, for the first time we will begin to build a financial aid program that can be accessed by current WIC families. These initiatives are extremely important and they can be achieved if we all work together.
We are extremely grateful to the Siebens Family for kicking off this year’s Annual Fund by offering to match family donations up to $50,000. I am amazed by this kindness! Please consider donating so we can make the most of this incredible gift. If we all give a little, together we can accomplish a lot.
Despite the current challenges, I believe we can have a bright future if we all work together. The power of our school community is that it continues to support our students as they evolve into leaders that can make a difference in the world. I am extremely proud to be a part of this community and to support it in any way I can.
Be Brave! Be Bold! Be Ready!
