When I came back to Stonehill after spending about 20 years abroad, I fell in love with the College all over again. Stonehill is part of my soul. Because of the education I received at Stonehill, I was able to have a very fulfilling career and life.

At Stonehill College, we create an environment that celebrates the value of the individual and inspires young people to lead purposeful lives. With the Holy Cross ideals and the skills they acquire at Stonehill, our students will have a positive impact on their homes and neighbor-hoods, their professions, and society. I believe Stonehill is one of the finest Catholic colleges in the country.

Attaining the Summit is a campaign to help our College and our students ascend to the next level of distinction. The Science Center will provide new learning models and attract the brightest science students. More scholarships will assist talented young people who struggle to afford Stonehill. And additional support for distinctively Stonehill academic initiatives will elevate our students' experience. Generous donors have already fulfilled many of our athletics program needs.

Stonehill is a community of many minds, united together for one purpose: to educate people who will think, act, and lead with courage toward the creation of a more just and compassionate world. I invite our loyal alumni, parents, and friends to join me in advancing this fine institution and all it stands for. Your gifts will surely help Stonehill and its students to shine from the hilltop.
