Why Support QND?


“My name is Katie Schuecking and I am a senior at Quincy Notre Dame. I participate in band, jazz band, women’s glee, and am a member of our campus ministry’s Student Leadership Team. I am a third generation attendee of QND.

QND has raised me to new levels of faith, compassion, hard work and success. The class work may be tough, but I know that it will make me that much more equipped for my future. Next year I will attend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as a nursing student.

I am often asked what does “Raider Pride” mean to me? My answer to that has always been that Raider Pride is not only attending sporting events and supporting the Raiders, but it is truly putting 110% in everything you do and being proud of who you are, what you do and where you come from. Through retreats, conferences, and various events other the years, my faith has gone from wading in the shallows to diving in to find out what lies beneath it all.

The gift of a QND education is priceless. Donations to the QND Fund Drive, no matter the size, help students like me receive this gift. The QND Fund Drive helps close the gap between the cost to educate and tuition charged to families.  My family and I appreciate the opportunity I have been given to attend QND through the generosity of the many supporters of QND.

When considering a gift to the QND Fund Drive please remember that your gift can truly change a life!”
