When the Sewanee Military Academy Class of 1952 considered its 50-year class reunion gift to the school, John W. "Jack" Porter decided to get personally involved. The Reunion Gift Committee decided to make a gift in memory of their deceased classmates designated for the Clyde A. Fasick, Jr. Scholarship Fund, which honors a fellow cadet who "represented the best qualities of the Class of 1952 and is remembered fondly by his surviving classmates." The scholarship provides financial support to a deserving current student.

"Clyde Fasick was one of the finest members of our class, and I felt strongly that his memory should be kept alive," Jack said. "Also, I wanted to honor the Fasick family for its contributions to the Academy." Jack chose to make an enduring gift by remembering SAS in his will with a gift designated for the Clyde A. Fasick, Jr. Scholarship Fund. "My years at SMA were tough, but the lessons I learned there and the friendships I made have stayed with me all my life," he said. "Making this gift to St. Andrew's-Sewanee is my way of remembering and showing gratitude for the education I received."

Jack Porter's gift has ensured that the Clyde A. Fasick, Jr. Scholarship Fund will continue to grow and provide assistance for deserving St. Andrew's-Sewanee students.
