During the second semester of the Senior year, a planning committee made up of members of the Junior Class plans the Senior Dinner, an opportunity for the class to come together and mark the beginning of their final days at Good Counsel. A portion of the funds given to attend the dinner are designated toward a scholarship, which is awarded to one member of the Junior Planning Committee. This scholarship serves as the Senior Class Gift and creates the first opportunity for the members of this class to leave their legacy to Good Counsel.
In the spring of every year, Collin DeWitt, the Director of Alumni Relations, and Katie Rictor, Director of the Fund for Good Counsel, meet with the Seniors in their religion classes to introduce the Forever A Falcon program. They share the benefits of becoming part of the network of more than 9,500 Good Counsel alumni and talk about the opportunities that will be open to them through this network. Seniors elect their Class Agents, those class leaders who will serve to keep them connected to the school. They also educate the Seniors about the importance of giving back through the Fund for Good Counsel as a way to demonstrate their gratitude for the opportunities they received and to help continue the GC legacy for the next generation.
Seniors may choose to honor a faculty member, coach, or other mentor with their donation. They are asked to consider a gift of $20.19 a year for the four years they are in college, but they may give any amount. The importance of participation and loyal giving are emphasized.
For more information or to volunteer to assist with the Forever a Falcon program, Seniors are asked to contact Mr. Collin DeWitt, Director of Alumni Relations.
