Relevance! Vague—clarify. Explain reasoning further.

Do these terms evoke any memories? Keep you up at night? Clint Darling’s lessons will stick with us forever.
For 40 years, Clint served Catlin Gabel as a French and English teacher, interim headmaster, head of the Upper School (for 13 years) and the English department, as well as a parent and friend. To honor his longevity and connection to our school, the Clint Darling Fund has been created in support of financial assistance, one of Catlin Gabel’s highest priorities. Financial aid is a permanent need about which Clint is most passionate.
The goal of this initiative is to raise at least $25,000, at which point an endowed scholarship will be established in Clint’s name. We hope you will join us in paying tribute to a devoted community member by ensuring that Catlin Gabel students represent a “cross-section of American life” (Ruth Catlin’s philosophy, 1928).
