Your Canterbury Fund Co-Chairs
ear Parents, Alumni, Faculty and Friends,
If you were to ask 10 people what loyalty
means, you would receive 10 very different answers. By definition, loyalty
means one's complete support of someone or something. To our children, loyalty
is a friend on the playground, a devoted teacher, or the helping hand of a carpool or lunchroom volunteer. It is also the familiar refrain of their beloved school song -- to you we give our loyalty completely.
I think loyalty is staying committed to a group of people to whom you feel connected. I have loyalty to my family, to my school, and to my teammates," remarked one Canterbury Middle School student. To one Canterbury High School student, "I think loyalty is being true to yourself and being true to the people who are close to you. Living in a way that would not let them down or let yourself down." To High School Director, Bob Schantz, loyalty is "the idea that Canterbury is built on the shoulders of a lot of parents who believed in the school and they had to be loyal to a vision, loyal to a dream. We still see that happening. It is a partnership and it means that we all need to pull together to keep it working."
As a member of the Canterbury community one of the greatest acts of loyalty to our school and to our students you can make, is a financial contribution to the Canterbury Fund. Annual donations ensure that all students in every division of the school have access to the best college preparatory education in northeast Indiana. Each gift is judiciously directed to the needs of teachers and students. Every gift is valued, necessary, and thoughtfully utilized.
The Canterbury community has shown its loyalty by consistently sharing of its time and resources for the past 37 years. It is this devotion that continues to set us apart, and for which, we continue to say...thank you for your loyalty. In turn, we continue to prove to each student -- to you we give our loyalty completely.
