Major Van Winkle ‘12 Wellness Fund

This campaign ends on December 31 at 07:00PM EST

In recognition of May as Mental Health Awareness Month, join Friends Select School for a Wellness Event on May 11, 2022 at 7p.m.:  Suicide Prevention and Education: What You Should Know. Learn more and register for this free virtual event here.

The Major Van Winkle 12 Wellness Fund supports programs and activities that create awareness of mental health concerns. The goal of this fund is to have open conversations, increase awareness, and educate our community to recognize warning signs that may lead to crisis, and to equip students with the skills to increase their overall well-being. 

This fund was established through the generosity of Major’s family, classmates, and many friends as a tribute not only to his life but also his care and compassion for others. Major, who took his own life at the age of 26, would have wanted students to have access to the help they need and for them to know that they are not alone.

Please use this platform to share your memories of Major. Click here to record a memory, or email photos and stories to Christine Jefferson (chrisj@friends-select.org) and we will post them for you. 

A special thank you to the committee who have worked to create this fitting tribute to Major.
