The Aviat Award: "Let us work for the happiness of others." St. Leonie Aviat
On November 6, 2019 we awarded this year's Aviat Award to three dedicated OLGC Teachers. Sponsored by the Wildcat Fund the award was inspired by and is dedicated to the memory of former OLGC teacher, Elizabeth White. Described as the embodiment of faith, hope, and perseverance, Elizabeth followed in the example of St. Leonie Aviat in her dedication to education and spirit of service. She truly took to heart the Salesian call to "be who you are and be that perfectly well." An OLGC Graduate, she came back home to serve as a member of our dedicated faculty. She brought to that role love for her community, her colleagues, her students, and most importantly her faith. Elizabeth understood that the choice to teach in a Catholic school was one that required certain sacrifices, especially for those who are just starting out. It was her dream to find a way to help those like her to offset the many expenses associated with living and serving in our great community.
In honor and memory of Elizabeth and her dedication to OLGC, we are pleased to announce this year's Aviat Award Recipients: Wendy Kehoe, Gemma Pearson, and Julie Rubio. More details can be found at https://www.olgcva.org/support/give/story-post/~board/giving/post/2019-20-aviat-award-winners.
The Aviat Awards are made possible by The Wildcat Fund, OLGC's annual giving program. For more information, please visit: https://www.olgcschool.org/wildcatfund .
On October 1, The Wildcat Fund kicked off as the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts at OLGC. The former "Piggy Bank Fund" is now part of this annual fund and will continue to benefit our school as in years past. In its second year, The Wildcat Fund will generate resources critical to the school's operations & mission. The areas of focus will be Recruitment and Retention of Faculty and Staff, Advancing technology and the Innovative Classroom, Addressing the needs of our Growing Campus and Delivering Need-Based Tuition Assistance.
Our exceptional faculty & staff are critical to the academic growth and social development of our students. The Wildcat Fund offers professional development, an improved workplace, and opportunities for recognition, such as the Aviat Award and gifts at Christmas. Your contributions will directly impact our teachers and enhance their ability to deliver the highest standards of learning directly to our students.
