In memory of, Nena Cunningham Dahling CDS '50, and in recognition of our mutual deep appreciation for University Liggett School the Dahling boys - William '74, Richard '77 and Peter '85 - have launched the Dahling Family Challenge.
The Dahling Family Challenge, which is funded with a bequest from Nena Dahling and support from William, Richard and Peter, seeks to raise money for three school priorities - opportunity, innovation and excellence — as supported by the Endowment Fund.
The goal of the Dahling Family Challenge is to raise $250,000. William, Richard and Peter will be matching gifts as long as all donations and/or pledges are made on or before June 30th.
"I think our mom would agree: we boys are very fortunate to have had you and University Liggett School in our lives. From the guidance and wisdom of dynamic faculty to the bonds of lifelong friendships we formed, the Dahling family owes much of - the rest came from mom and dad, and that's a lot — its sure foundation to ULS and the Grosse Pointe community we called home for more than 60 years."
University Liggett School is a private preschool and kindergarten through 12th grade college preparatory school in Metro Detroit that is nationally recognized for its innovative curriculum and arts and athletics offerings.
