Overwhelmed with Gratitude!

Dear Friends,

Yesterday was a wonderful tribute to Gordie and the result has, and will continue to have, a profound impact on Cardigan. Thank you for your generous support!

Students like Gordie are the glue that bond a community tightly together. Inviting boys like him to Cardigan, and having the financial aid resources to ensure they can afford the experience, is essential in creating and sustaining the culture we want—one rooted in compassion, integrity, respect, and courage. With each dollar raised for Gordie's scholarship, we are given more freedom to select the most deserving boys, regardless of their family's financial situation. 

Thank you once again for honoring Gordie's legacy and helping Cardigan become a better place. 

Sincerely, 

Jeremiah Shipman '00
Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations
