Leaving a Legacy…

Meet the Tumolos: Matt, Diane (Duffin ’82) and Olivia ’17. Alexandra and Caroline ’13 are also members of the Tumolo family, our extended O’Hara family. Recently, Diane and Matt were discussing ways to give back to O’Hara, a second home to their family for years, and they had a great idea to involve members of the Class of 2017 in giving back.

On Tuesday, June 6th, Matt and Diane spoke to the seniors the day before these students officially became alumni. They spoke of the importance of giving back to O’Hara, the home of those 253 students for years. At the end of their remarks, Diane told the class that the Tumolo family was donating $5 for each senior to ‘give’ back to The O’Hara Fund and begin their life as supporters of their alma mater. The Class of 2017 erupted into applause and eagerly signed up to be part of this ground-breaking initiative.

Thanks to the Tumolos, we are proud to say that the Class of 2017 has 100% participation in The O’Hara Fund! What a tremendous blessing for O’Hara! The O’Hara Fund is vital to supporting all of the programs and services for our school. With the support of families, friends, corporations and our more than 30,000 alumni, we are able to provide many programs and services to enhance the education of our students. Donations to The O’Hara Fund may be made online at http://www.cohs.com/donate or checks may be mailed to Office of Advancement, 1701 S. Sproul Road, Springfield, PA 19064.

Thank you, Tumolo family! And thank you, Class of 2017!
