“I want such blessings to flow to other young men to follow.”
Dr. Ray ’52 and Sally Pilkerton
Ray Pilkerton '52 and his wife, Sally, have decided to make a bequest in their wills to support the ongoing educational excellence at Gonzaga. In doing so, they drew on Ray's experience of his own time on Eye Street and the gratitude they share for the educations of their sons Ray III '85 and Chris '91. Upon reflection on what a Gonzaga education has meant in his life, Ray '52 says, "My life has had many academic and professional turns, but my memories always go back to where my adult roots began to grow. I spent my sometimes confusing adolescence at Gonzaga, and the values I learned there, and from many others, have stayed with me all my life. Many worthwhile organizations request your support, and some are relevant to your life experiences. I have been blessed in my life, and I want such blessings to flow to other young men to follow."
