Houston Developer Donates One Million Dollars to Strake Jesuit College Preparatory
Strake Jesuit College Preparatory has received one of the largest one-time gifts in the school’s history from Houston philanthropist and developer in support of the school’s long-term vision. Kendall and Cindy Miller, parents of three alumni, joined Fr. Jeff Johnson, S.J., president of Strake Jesuit, during halftime of the school’s season opening home football game on Friday, August 27 to announce the gift. This leadership gift sets the school’s vision for the future upon a firm foundation.
“Sometimes leaders step up and make significant financial contributions that help us take the next step,” says Fr. Jeff Johnson, S.J., President of Strake Jesuit. “The Miller family has been part of our community for ten years. From the beginning of our strategic planning, Kendall and Cindy have been intimately involved in helping us respond to God’s invitation.”
In the history of the school, there have only been two other lump sum cash gifts of this size.
“Cindy and I are grateful for the opportunity to support the Strake Jesuit College Preparatory mission and it’s our hope that the great formation our sons received here will continue to be shared by many fine young men in the future,” remarked Kendall Miller as a ceremonial check was received by three current students during the announcement ceremony.
Affirmed by the school’s Board of Directors in January 2020, the strategic plan recommits the school to being Catholic & Jesuit, Student-Centered, Accessible, and Men for Others.
