Padre Pio Society
Padre Pio Society was founded for alumni, parents, grandparents and friends who want to ensure that Saint Anthony’s will always be able to provide tuition assistance to those who are deserving and who are in need.
I attended Saint Anthony’s High School from 1988 to 1992. During my junior year my family suffered the unexpected death of my father. Faced with heightened financial obligations, the continuation of private high school tuition posed an enormous burden. We were overwhelmed with gratitude when we learned that through the generosity of an alumni family I was selected to receive a scholarship offering tuition assistance for my senior year. The completion of high school at Saint Anthony’s paved the way for high level education opportunities for both undergraduate and post graduate degrees, which in turn paved the way for career success. I’ve not forgotten, however, the unsolicited generosity of that family whose donation was at the forefront of these accomplishments and it has been my hope that I would be in a position to “pay it forward” and be that generous angel for another Saint Anthony’s student in need. My husband, son and I found ourselves fortunate enough to contribute that grant for the 2016/2017 school year and hope to be fortunate enough to continue that charitable mission for many years to come.
