Portland, OR. De La Salle North Catholic’s 16th annual Changing Destinies Luncheon was held on April 22nd. The virtual luncheon raised funds for the school’s financial aid program; it supports 92% of the students who attend. The event raised $323,600. The fundraiser is important because one goal for De La Salle North Catholic is that no student be turned because of an inability to pay.

Guests were treated to a virtual tour of the school, hosted by Owen O’Brien, DLSNC Class of 2018.

Here’s a link to the video:

The virtual program included a greeting from school President Oscar Leong and Joseph McIntosh (DLSNC Class of 2022) explained the unique Corporate Work-Study education. A’Chy’Gei Motley, a graduating senior, spoke about exciting college plans. Other seniors highlighted the school’s diverse and inclusive community.

Leaders also shared a sneak peek of the new campus currently under construction and offered an invitation for guests to join them in their new gym next year. The new campus will open this coming fall and Owen and James Broadous, Vice Principal of Student Life, were excited to show the construction progress with guests.
