Together for Good Campaign Reaches $35 Million Mark

Together for Good has raised an additional $7 million since launching this October, bringing the total to $35 million toward our $50 million goal. Student speaker Devin O'Reilly '18 highlights Campaign Committee update. 

The Together for Good Campaign Committee recently convened for an update on the Campaign’s progress. The highlight of the evening was hearing from student speaker Devin O’Reilly ’18, captain of the football team, who told his moving story of overcoming adversity before transferring into Merrimack as a sophomore.  Devin concluded with a powerful reminder of the impact of supporting Merrimack College:

 “What Merrimack has been able to do for not only me but the people around me is truly amazing. What I believe this school is, and what this school can become, is bar none compared to any school in the nation. What this school has taught me is to wake up with clear eyes. In my life I once woke up with tear-filled eyes, but now my eyes are clear, with a vision, a powerful movement. My heart was once cold and shy, but now my heart is full, and that is all thanks to Merrimack. Together, I believe as a family of Warriors here tonight, if we as a whole can wake up with clear eyes, and with full hearts, together we shall not lose. No adversity, no troubles, can stop what my Merrimack family is here to accomplish. Together in the past, together now, together forever, blue and gold, with clear eyes and full hearts, we shall stand, together… for good…” – Devin O’Reilly ’18
