This past summer I returned to Brookwood in a professional capacity. It is amazing to see firsthand that the same child-centered education I experienced as a student takes place in these classrooms today. I loved this school so much for the nine years I was here and I reminisce daily at what memorable years they were. I choose to support Brookwood and encourage you to join me in supporting the school that provided me with a wonderful foundation of learning.
What might you say to encourage others to give?
It’s not about the size of the gift—it’s about participation. Make a gift and show your passion for Brookwood. After all, the giving percentage is the strongest recommendation on how great a school is.
What does giving back mean to you?
It means, “thank you.” A thank you for the wonderful education and the lifelong friendships I made while at Brookwood.
