非凡的礼物

This transformative gift to the STEAM phase of the 建设我们的未来运动 represents the largest collective gift as well as largest individual gifts given by living donors to the School in its 108-year history. It brings to life the vision of a STEAM wing that provides a stateof- the-art facility for girls to develop the skills to excel in STEAM subjects.
  

——伯纳黛特·舒茨·罗素,2003年

“The four of us feel very strongly about the School 和 our experiences there 和 believe in the need to give back 和 help the School advance. We made this gift because we believe in women supporting women, 在一个对我们很重要的地方投资, 和 in inspiring others to join in supporting this vital effort to help our School reach its campaign goal.”

——帕梅拉·马尔斯·赖特,1978

“I believe in the value of single sex high school education, especially for girls. I think that it would be a shame if the School wasn’t able to compete at the level it can, 而且应该, because we didn’t do the things that we can do to help make that happen.”

——维多利亚·贝丝·马尔斯

“女性可以选择, 和 they should feel empowered to give to what they have a passion for 和 to a place they believe in. I feel that girls deserve the same opportunity for an education as boys do 和 as alumnae of a girl’s school, 我们需要建立模型. We should be investing in future generations of women.”

——夏洛特·奥黛丽·罗塞特2012

“Where else does your money make an impact that reverberates through someone’s entire life 和 the generations that follow?”
