Our 2017 graduating class had the incredible experience of being present during a transformative time at Camden Catholic. When they entered in 2013 we were embarking on our first-ever capital campaign: The Campaign for the Future, with a goal of $6 million. As they enter college we are proud to celebrate achievement of that goal with a total of $6.2 million raised, an increase in scholarship funds and the completion of two major capital projects.
As has been the case since our founding in 1887, Camden Catholic is proud to push our graduates out into the world to do more, achieve more, and to work harder. Our students leave these hallowed halls with a sense of grit, determination, and faith that has been honed in the chapel, learned in the classroom, practiced on the playing fields and exhibited in the community.
From Derek Nuamah ’17, who is studying neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania, to Laura Howard ’17 who was named a recipient of the Visionary Woman scholarship at Moore College of Art & Design, to alumni such as Andy Gaskill ’69, an animator at Paramount Pictures, Luis Gaitan ’06, a civil engineer who served in the United States Navy in Afghanistan, and Andrew Ennis ’02 who is working as both a professional musician and music educator, our students and alumni are achieving more!
It is with these examples in mind that our enrollment remains strong, and you, our alumni and supporters continue to give back. We thank you for your enduring support, and we hope you enjoy the enclosed stories of our students and alumni who are making a difference in the world thanks to their Irish Experience.
Yours in Honor, Faith and Loyalty,
Mary Whipkey, P ’01, ’03, ’05, President
Heather Crisci, P ’17, Principal
