In a Mother's Own Words
By Tom O'Keefe '64, Director of Planned Giving
I met Kameron Dunbar ’15 when he was a freshman and had been awarded a Circle of Care scholarship sponsored by Arrupe Society member Kurt Brown ’71. I was impressed with him and knew that he would do very well at The High. His list of accomplishments includes Student Senate Sergeant-At-Arms, First Chair Alto-Saxophone, leadership in several student clubs and Annual Fund phonathon representative.
Kameron and his mother, Karin Dunbar, have always expressed their appreciation for the opportunities that he received at U of D Jesuit. Ms. Dunbar recently sent me a very heartfelt letter, and I would like to share a portion of it with you.
As I reflect upon Kameron’s time at The High, I am overcome with gratitude and appreciation. Words cannot express the joy I have experienced watching Kameron grow into a mature young man, respected by his peers and the entire student body.
Through his participation in the Student Senate, the debate team and band, he learned to demonstrate and master communication, team building and leadership skills that will prepare him to meet life’s challenges with courage and determination.
I am extremely proud of Kameron and thankful for the philosophies and values the entire U of D community institutes into every facet of the Jesuit educational experience. I know that Kameron will be a successful citizen, joining Men for Others who have left a legacy of hope, achievements and positive contributions within the community, across the country and around the world.
The U of D Jesuit mission to serve the community has ignited an inner passion and desire in him to seek social justice and equality for those less fortunate. I am eternally grateful and proud to say my son, Kameron Dunbar, was a recipient of the rich heritage of U of D Jesuit.
Sincerest appreciation, Karin Lynette Dunbar
Thank you for all that you do to make a U of D Jesuit education available to Kameron Dunbar ’15 and many other fine and deserving young men. It’s a great day to be a Cub!
