Wow, That Was Easy!
When I wanted to know how my late friend, Professor, and Dean, Dr. John Biles was able to raise the millions of dollars needed to build the School of Pharmacy building adjacent to the Schools of Medicine and Nursing at the University of Southern California, he said, simply,
“I asked for it.”
I guess that’s what is needed. When Judy Davidian Bedrosian W’54 told me our mission to help Hami grads in furthering their education fit into the goals of the Karisma Foundation, she encouraged me to apply. Judy and her husband John endowed this charitable foundation, which has awarded grants to many worthwhile organizations in the community. I applied on your behalf to the administrator, their daughter Karen. The result was the largest grant to date to our Million Dollar Mission.
Judy, John and Karen: Thank you, not only on behalf of the Hamilton Alumni and kids we help, but also on behalf of our city, state and country. Your commitment to “repair the world” does not go unappreciated.
How about those “most likely” in your class? We’ll highlight some of them in future Bugles. Send us your suggestions.
Have a wonderful rest of 2014.
