Give the ultimate gift this holiday season - an estate gift you plan now and give later.
How often do we walk around campus and marvel at the beautiful buildings and landscape? But, do we ever think about those who came before us, whose vision and forethought blessed us with such a lasting legacy for us to behold? We have benefited immensely from the generosity of individuals and families who wanted to establish a permanency to the mission and vision of Episcopal, including the breath-taking campus we enjoy each day.
I invite you to consider giving the best gift ever – an estate gift. A few sentences in your will or living trust is all it takes to make a gift that will have a lasting impact on future generations. Whether your goal is to increase your support, teach family members the importance of philanthropy, create an endowment, or show your love for a school that holds a huge place in your heart, an estate gift is one you can plan now and make later.
Please consider joining me and the other members of The Good Shepherds of Episcopal Legacy Society by committing your long-term support to Episcopal in the areas that mean the most to you and your family. If you would like to give the ultimate gift or are interested in more information, please contact Katie Thompson, Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving, at 755-2741 or email@example.com .
2016 Penniman Scholars Honored with Luncheon
Episcopal School of Baton Rouge recently honored the 2016 Mary Virginia Crain Penniman Scholarship recipients with a luncheon in the Head of School's office. These scholarships are awarded annually to three of the most outstanding English students in Middle School, and the recipients are announced during the Middle School end of the year awards ceremony in May.
This year’s recipients, Molly Frances King ’22, Christine Myer ’20 and Alex Nelson ’21, and their parents joined Hugh McIntosh and guests in the Head of School’s office on Friday, September 30, 2016. The luncheon was prepared by Chef Pat Mahon and hosted by Mr. G. Allen Penniman, Mrs. Joanie Penniman and Mrs. Margaret Penniman Boudreaux ’76, fifth grade English teacher.
Each year, these scholarships are determined by the grade level English teachers and were first awarded in 1988 to Lee C. “Buster” Kantrow ’91 and Cathy White Engle ’93. Previous Penniman Scholars have commented on how the scholarship gave them the encouragement to strive for success and to continue challenging themselves and setting high personal standards. The fund, established by G. Allen Penniman, has been motivating students for 28 years.
If you would like information about establishing a fund to benefit students at Episcopal, please contact Katie Thompson, Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving, in the Advancement Office at (225) 755-2741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
