Dear Friend of Timon,
September 2019 marked the entrance of the 73rd freshman class at Bishop Timon – St. Jude High School!
The young men who just started their Timon journey will in four short years join the ranks of the thousands of Timon Men who are such a fabric of the communities they live in, whether in Western New York or elsewhere.
I am proud to once again have the opportunity to launch the 2020 Strong in Faith annual campaign. This year the campaign has taken on even greater significance as a result of the dramatic turn-around we are experiencing at Timon and in the Timon Community.
With growing enrollment numbers from our enhanced recruiting efforts, to solidifying a strong and committed administration and faculty, to enhancing curriculum to provide our students the resources to be leaders in tomorrow’s workforce, we are making substantive progress in meeting the objectives outlined in our five year strategic plan, One Paw One Timon.
A key pillar of that plan is simply financial support from our alumni and friends – all of you! We need your full support now, more than ever, to sustain our momentum and build a Timon for the future. There is no escaping the importance of fundraising at private schools across the region. Simply put, Timon needs your financial support in order to remain viable NOW, and to provide a Timon for FUTURE generations of young men!
The 2020 Strong in Faith campaign is being dedicated to long-time principal Bob Chambers, better known to many of us as “The Rock”. While Bob was called to Heaven, his spirit remains throughout the halls of 601 McKinley Parkway. I would like to also think that in some way, shape or form, the spirit of all our alumni permeates the halls at Bishop Timon.
The characteristics that were embedded in Bob are the same traits displayed everyday by our alumni – grit, determination and intelligence all rooted in Franciscan values. These same characteristics and values are embedded in the Freshman class and the current students at Timon, including the fifty one young men who will be graduating in May 2020.
Please join me in supporting the 2020 Strong in Faith – the Rock’s Campaign!
Thank you in advance for your commitment and support of Timon. We remain always, Fortes in Fide!
