Sandia Prep's faculty favorite Larry Hanley is retiring in May. Mr. Hanley has long hoped for our Outdoor Leadership Program to have an SUV. Help us honor Mr. Hanley's retirement wish and contribute to our OLP SUV fund.
Curious about the SUV for our OLP?
We are happy to report that the OLP's Ford Expedition is safely parked next to Prep's Welcome Center in a designated parking space.
We appreciate our OLP members for making this possible!
Mr. Larry Hanley launched Sandia Prep’s Outdoor Leadership Program in 1994 with a small group of students and parent volunteers. Mr. Hanley has long hoped for the program to have an SUV to transport campers for scheduled excursions and for last-minute camping opportunities.
To honor Larry’s tireless work and the 25th anniversary of the program, we have partnered with Power Ford in Albuquerque to raise $50,000+ to purchase a newer model Ford Expedition for Prep’s Outdoor Leadership Program. If you're able to contribute to this campaign, please know that a cash contribution of any size is appreciated. All funds raised will benefit Prep's OLP. On behalf of Larry Hanley and the entire Sandia Prep team, THANK YOU for your consideration!
Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 26, 2019, the date of Rendezvous, an event that will celebrate the 25 Anniversary of the OLP and the retirement of Larry Hanley. Rendezvous will be held at Sandia Prep on the quad from 6 pm to 9 pm.
SUV for our OLP Update:
Thanks to 100+ donors, Sandia Prep's Outdoor Leadership Program now has a 2018 Ford Expedition for future trips and last-minute camping opportunities. On behalf of Mr. Hanley and the entire OLP, thank you for your support!
Good News --
As of this morning, our Sheehy Challenge Match is complete!
Late last week Prep announced that we were just $5k away from completing our "SUV for our OLP" campaign and Scotti (Russell) '02 & Bobby Sheehy generously offered to help with a final campaign push.
In just six days, eleven donors contributed $2,850, making us eligible for the $2,500 in matching funds.
Scotti (Russell) '02 & Bobby Sheehy have put together a challenge match to help Prep raise the last of the needed funds for our "SUV for our OLP" campaign.
We have $5,000 left to raise and the Sheehys have generously offered to match contributions (up to $2,500) until the campaign is fully funded.
