NJC’21 Class Gift sets new school record!

Neuchâtel Junior College
Class of 2021 sets ambitious goal and then smashes it twice!

The parents and students of Class of 2021 decided that they wanted to give back to NJC by creating a gift that would help future generations of students. As committee Co-Chairs John (NJC’79) and Catherine Grant explained,

"NJC has been so positive and transformative for each of us...We want to give the school the resources to offer the NJC experience to more families."

A committee of dedicated NJC’21 parents was formed and the original goal of $50,000 was set to help fund future NJC scholarships and bursaries. Immediately, the outpouring of parental support was simply overwhelming, so the Gift committee quickly reconvened and ambitiously decided to more than double their goal!

By the end of the campaign, both goals were surpassed and an impressive $142,925.00 was raised to set a new “Class Gift” record! Click here to listen to Head of School, Mr. Andrew J. Keleher, make this exciting announcement at NJC's Graduation ceremony in June. 

This incredible achievement would not have been possible without the tireless efforts and commitment of the Class of '21 Gift Committee:
  • John & Catherine Grant (Co-Chairs)
  • Eyal Artzy & Sharon Beaumont
  • Barry & Wendy Gordon
  • Doug & Deborah McCutcheon
  • Kim Reucassel
And the tremendous support of all the contributors listed here.

Congratulations and thank you to the parents and students from the Class of 2021. Your generosity has left a lasting legacy that will help future NJC students for years to come! 

In an unprecedented year, you have truly left your mark!
