Dear Episcopal Collegiate Families and Friends, People often express an interest in making a gift to honor the accomplishments of students, faculty, family members, friends, and classmates. A book is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone. A book is a lasting honorarium, or memorial, which will benefit many students throughout the years. All three libraries need books and reference materials which support Episcopal Collegiateâ€™s curriculum. Books range in cost for fiction and some non-fiction from $40.00 - $50.00 to upwards of $50.00 - $250.00 for special reference books. Our libraries constitute a major element in preparing our students for study and life beyond the gates of the Jackson T. Stephens Campus. Your gift of a book will become a vital part of our collection. Honor those who are important to you and share the gift of knowledge through a donation to purchase a book. Your honoree will receive a card notifying him or her of your thoughtful gift. A bookplate is placed in the front of the book showing the name of the honoree and the donor. Share the gift of knowledge by purchasing a book today, and help us continue to expand our library collections for many years to come.
Sincerely, Stephen D. Hickman Head of School
