Obviously a very generous person who wishes to remain in the shadows which means it isn't a local.

I expected they would help those kids whose families cannot afford to send their kids to Prep but all Jabo talked about was completing the monument to themselves on 12th street.

Certainly some token refurbishment work will go on at Villa to make it look good but the master plan is to complete their dream athletic complex.

I can't just imagine how many Preppies will be beating their meat tonight thinking about the soon to be completed CPEC.

Yes do the "right thing"I worked summers and during the school year to help pay my tuition. Couldn't afford a class ring and some other things and survived.. Why should you think Prep owes the money to people who can't afford? I didn't expect. quit walking miles for people who wouldn't walk across the street for you.

Now Prep has more money to bring in another pack of inner city minorities to play football ! There's even enough to hire each kid a tutor to keep them eligible until the season ends.

Sad thing is that Trevor graduated from Prep and has his own class ring so he has experienced the chaffing that he constantly posts about.

I'm very proud of you - your attitude is what I would expect from a Prepster.

You missed the point, this money should be used to "spread the word of the Lord" and provide a Catholic education to those who do not have the resources to attend your fine school.

You Preppies don't mind bringing inner city kids in to win you championships but you don't want regular black kids in your hallowed halls.

Blow it out of your ass you arrogant twit.

Class is based on enrollment of the school jacka$$$. Prep was Quad A for may years until they were removed to AAA b/c of enrollment. Prep dominated in Quad A then too.

Dear Trev & do the right thing..
It hurts to let go of the hate for Prep... Or is it the the hate for the Prep kid ten years ago whom stole your girlfriend.. She was a slut anyways and does porn now thanks is to her sub par erie public school eductaion.. Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong and it makes you feel so small because itís so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesnít coma back. Youíre left so alone that you canít explain. Damn, thereís nothing like that, is there? Iíve been there and you have too. Youíre nodding your head while your reading this aren't you.. Give it up and let go!!

What a wonderful giift for these two schools. The only thing that I am disappointed in is, not a penny to help the needy. The powers that be should take a page from the Pope, he is all about helping others.
