Bob Pastore '60
Bob Pastore '60, a Southern California alumnus speaks about why he gives back to The Prep and why he has made a planned gift to his beloved alma mater.
"Looking back over more than 50 years, attending Seton Hall Prep was the signature event in my life. It is my finest honor. The Prep sets your character. It's hard to believe the successes the Class of 1960 has enjoyed.My annual contributions to The Prep are donated in loving memory of my parents who scraped and saved to pay my way through The Prep. My dad was a truck driver and my mom a homemaker and we lived in Newark. The sacrifices they made to send two of us to The Prep are astonishing. (Bob's brother Dave is a 1970 graduate.) So every year I make a significant contribution, to allow some young man the ability to receive the rewards of a Seton Hall Prep education. The Prep sends 100% of its graduates on to college! We need to support such outstanding educational organizations. I have accumulated much in my life...it's time to give back. In fact, much of my estate will go to The Prep. I ask my fellow alumni not to forget The Prep in their plans. Review your estate planning and consider doing something for our alma mater."
