Archbishop Stepinac High School will hold its largest fundraiser of the year on April 16 to raise money for financial aid.
At the Trustees Awards Reception, which will be held April 16 at the Crowne Plaza in White Plains, the school will honor alumni and community and corporate partners. The honorees are Caryl and William F. Plunkett Jr., a lawyer and member of the class of 1958 who became chairman of the Board of Trustees when the school became independent five years ago; Cisco Systems; Diane and Jesus Jaile-Marti, chief of neonatology at White Plains Hospital Center; and Frank Portanova, the school’s vice-principal for academics and curriculum.
“It is fitting that Bill will be saluted by the Stepinac community, particularly at this moment as he steps down as chair of the Board of Trustees this year, following five years of incredible progress for Stepinac,” said Father Thomas Collins, Stepinac’s president, in a statement. “During his tenure, the school’s student enrollment increased 53% for the 2014-15 school year, significant infrastructure improvements and enhancements were accomplished and educators across the nation and internationally recognized Stepinac as a model in developing the first-of-its-kind digital textbook library.”
The cost of the reception is $250 per person. Reservations can be made until April 6.
