The Heyward family is truly honored to represent St. Luke’s in the 2016-2017 Annual Giving Campaign. Now entering our seventh year at St. Luke’s, there is no doubt that we made the best decision in trusting St. Luke’s with the academic and spiritual development of our girls, Toni Rose and Evie.
In the Spring of 2011, we took a leap of faith and made the decision to move to the Baton Rouge area from our home in Colorado. As many of you know, moving cross-country, is no easy task. But, we trusted we were making the right decision for our family and that God would continue to show us the way, if this journey was meant to be.
We enrolled in St. Luke’s without having an opportunity to visit in person. We yet again looked to our faith and just trusted that this was the right decision. We will never forget how anxious we were on Toni’s first day. However, since that first day, we have never looked back and never wavered in our decision to entrust our children to the wonderful faculty and staff at St. Luke’s. Evie started as a shy, 3-year-old, who barely participated in group activities. Now, she is a 5-year-old, chatter box, who truly knows no stranger!
We as St. Luke’s parents are very blessed to have a faculty, staff, and church community who are committed to its mission of providing for the academic, spiritual, physical, and emotional development of our children. However, they cannot do this alone. They need the support and involvement of all our families and those that love St. Luke’s, all of whom we know are just as dedicated as we are to giving back to a school that has given so much to our children.
This year’s Annual Giving Campaign is our opportunity to continue in that tradition of giving. While tuition funds the day-to-day operating expenses of our school, the Annual Giving Campaign serves as our school’s strategic fundraising initiative so we can continue to invest in enhanced technology, the professional development of our faculty, facility and security improvements, and financial aid.
Please look to your faith and give from your heart and join our family in supporting this year’s Annual Giving Campaign. By striving for a 100% participation rate, no amount of service is too small, we can do wonderful things to help make St. Luke’s an even better place for our children than it already is.
Thank you for your consideration & generosity.
Tony, Stephanie, Toni Rose, & Evie Heyward
