A NOTE OF GRATITUDE
FROM BILL REYNOLDS

Dear Friends:

When I talk to donors, I often hear them say they want to “pay it forward,” and we see the evidence of that commitment every day in the exceptional students who are here both because of their own achievements and because someone like you has made it possible.

That is why scholarships are the highest priority of For Generations to Come: the Campaign for Georgetown—and why your support is so essential in keeping our commitment to offering full financial assistance to every admitted student who needs it. So far we have raised over $7 million from over 12,500 donors.

Thank you for demonstrating what it means to be a Hoya by stepping forward to sustain Georgetown’s excellence and helping our students to realize their potential. We are deeply grateful.

Sincerely,

William Reynolds (C’79, Parent’10, ’13)
Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations and Annual Fund

“Georgetown challenged me to step out of my box and find my voice.”

Fun facts: Member of the Georgetown Latin Dance Team, Ritmo y Sabor; Loves food from Honduras and Puerto Rico; Likes to sing; Wants to be a lawyer someday.

Andrei was born and raised in the Roxbury section of Boston. His mother no longer works due to illness, but once drove a school van. His father is a carpenter. His grandparents funded private school in the elementary and middle years which helped motivate him and his identical twin. Both did well enough to receive scholarships to Cristo Rey Boston.

“I was focused on college at a pretty young age,” he says. His guidance counselor suggested Georgetown and Andrei spent a few minutes on campus as part of a senior class trip to D.C. “I was surprised at how comfortable I felt,” he recalls. The financial aid packaged sealed the deal and today he is a sophomore who would someday like to work internationally. He is thinking about majoring in Spanish

Andrei’s co-curricular activities include tutoring adults from the DC immigrant community in English every Saturday for D.C. Reads. He also enjoys performing as a member of the Latin dance team and is active in the Georgetown Scholarship Program.

Andrei has attended several GSP events and enjoys meeting donors. “When people outside your family care about you, I don’t think you can say ‘thank you’ enough. I’m not going to let them down . . . I’m not going to let myself down.”
