Jack Eustis Scholarship Fund
Click here to give to the Jack Eustis Scholarship Fund. Jack was a Saint Ann’s junior, a playwright, a musician, a much loved son, brother, friend, classmate and student. He was kind, funny, and deeply thoughtful. He radiated joy and exuberance; his home was a central gathering spot for his friends and classmates. His death has made a hole in the world; he is missed by all.
The Jack Eustis Scholarship honors Jack’s love of Saint Ann’s and the wish he had expressed to return to the school one day as a teacher. At Jack’s family’s request, the purpose of the scholarship is to make it possible for a deserving student with very limited financial means to attend Saint Ann’s. Every four years, the school will seek to award the scholarship to an incoming 9th grade student whose life circumstances would otherwise prevent him or her from having the opportunity to attend a school like Saint Ann’s. It is expected that the recipient will receive support from the fund during his or her four years in the high school. Should a situation arise in which the award cannot be made to an entering 9th grader the school will seek to use the fund in a manner that adheres as closely as possible to the purposes described above. Donations to the Jack Eustis Scholarship Fund are invested and earnings are released annually according to the endowment policy set by the Board of Trustees of Saint Ann’s School.

Every four years, beginning with Ronald Reagan’s election in 1980, Jack led a group of students to Washington, D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration. Jack treasured these trips and their profound impact on each of his students. With this in mind, all donations to the John Shelley McShane Scholarship Fund provide financial assistance for meaningful school excursions.
