|Jack and I Launching Year 2 in the Chapel Friday Morning|
We spoke about the importance of contributing to the greater good and of delayed gratification--of the fact that most good things in the world do not come easily--doing good takes hard work and commitment over time, which is what Saint David's boys have resolved to do. It's not only in keeping with our mission; it's our mission epitomized.

Last year, the first of what will probably be several, the boys managed to raise a quarter of the funds necessary to build the school in Ethiopia. Friday morning after the Chapel ceremony, those monies were presented to Steve Donato from Save the Children and Mimi O'Hagan of Mimi's Building Blocks by the Student Council President on behalf of Colin Johnson, his immediate predecessor, the class of 2011 and all the boys of Saint David's. Mr. Donato, after thanking the boys assembled in the Hume Library, told them that the money would immediately be sent to Ethiopia where Save the Children and the village elders are ready to literally lay the foundations of the school.
