Thank you for joining us in honoring The Hudson School’s Founder & Director, Suellen Newman. From the moment she founded The Hudson School, Mrs. Newman wanted to make sure that no deserving student was denied the opportunity to attend for financial reasons, so she maintained a need-blind admissions policy. This generosity has undoubtedly changed the lives of many students, for whom the full cost would have been prohibitive.
Your gift, no matter how small, will help us to continue her legacy beyond her retirement at the end of this year. To that end, we are creating a Suellen Newman Scholarship Fund and hope to initially fund it with at least $100,000.
This creation of a scholarship fund in her name, which we managed to keep a surprise, was presented to Mrs. Newman at the June 17, 2016 event in her honor, with a funding of $90,000. We came very close to our goal!
