The Haverford High School Class of 1983 and Amy’s Kisses Foundation, a nonprofit created in memory of Class of ‘83 alumnus Amy Perez and her children, have donated $2,500 to provide full SAT Boot Camp scholarships to HHS students with financial need.

The fundraiser was part of the recent 30th Class Reunion, where Amy’s Kisses matched classmates’ donations in order to send HHS students in need to upcoming sessions of Catalyst SAT Boot Camp.  In addition, each student registration to the Boot Camp will also benefit the Haverford Township Education Foundation.

After graduating from Haverford, Perez went on to Cornell University and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.  She co-founded a successful college test preparation organization shortly before she and her two children, Molly and Gregory were brutally murdered in October, 2011 at the hands of Perez’s estranged husband, who also took his own life. 

Amy’s Kisses, co-founded by Perez’s sister Jill Gobora and lifelong best friend Patti Cush (both HHS alumni), celebrates her generosity of spirit, her commitment to academic excellence, and her enduring legacy by enriching the lives and education of students with financial need.
