Five decades of friendship inspire gift

Ronald P. Stride ’62 and his wife, Janet, will leave $1 million in their estate to the College to establish the Ronald and Janet Stride Family Scholarship. This endowed scholarship will cover the full cost of attendance for one student each year from Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn, N.Y., which Stride attended, or from another New York borough. While the Strides are living, they are contributing to PC annually to cover the cost of attendance of one such student.

The gift was inspired by the five decades of friendship Stride has enjoyed with his PC classmates despite spending most of his life in Singapore, where he is active in business and charitable organizations. It was announced during his PC reunion in June 2017, when Stride received the National Alumni Association’s Personal Achievement Award for his career and charitable accomplishments.
