Thanks to you we met the Challenge!
Thank you for coming through for us in response to the Partners in Excellence Challenge and contributing well over $1000 between Christmas and New Year’s Eve to the Carlin Nalley Foundation. An anonymous alumni donor will be contributing an additional $1000 to CNF to help fund our scholarship program for outstanding Lisle High School students.
In 2019, CNF will now be giving out eight $2500 awards (a total of $20,000 annually). The majority of the funding comes from annual donations from loyal Lisle alumni like you who understand and appreciate the value of a Lisle High School education to our own lives and love our unique small hometown and schools. We have been able to grow the size and number of the scholarships over the last seven years because of your generosity and the increasing number of alumni who are with us every year.
We hope we will see you at our Lisle Alumni events, like the June 23rd golf outing and the Fall Beer Event (September, date tbd) so that we may thank you in person and enjoy some beers and remembering old times.
All the best to you and your families for a successful and healthy 2019.
Thanks again---Go Lions!
John Bartels, Class of '85
We accept donations year-round.
