Alumni Summer Boat Cruise
Marist alumni and friends enjoyed a beautiful cruise of New York Harbor on July 9, 2014 aboard the "Jewel" while raising funds for the Alumni Legacy Scholarship. The second annual, private, three-hour cruise included breathtaking views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Freedom Tower, Statue of Liberty, and more from a unique vantage point. The Alumni Legacy Scholarship has been awarded to 16 students since 1998 - most recently to Olivia Corrigan '18, daughter of Jeannine (Liu) '88 and Bryan Corrigan.
At a recent Marist Alumni Executive Board Meeting, past president and
Greystone Board member, Jim Daly ’72, announced a fundraising challenge
to help build the endowment of the Alumni Legacy Scholarship Fund. As a
former Dean of Admission at Marist, Jim has always been passionate
about helping young adults achieve their educational goals. Jim offered
to match all gifts received from Marist alumni for the scholarship over
the next three years one-to-one up to $25,000. Building this special
endowment fund will increase the award amounts for future student
recipients. Currently, assistance is being provided for four students
each year. If you would like to accept Jim’s challenge, click here to make your gift now using your credit card and this secure online form.
