Formative Experience

A mission gives a life meaning. One family found a way to pay it forward.

“It really clicked that we are part of something bigger—in addition to our chosen professions—we were put here to make the world better,” Jim Slattery says of his experience on a Jesuit retreat.

As the parents of Bronco John Michael Slattery ’21, Georgia-based Jim and Betsy Slattery support the next generation—by giving to the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education.

They help fund scholarships for immersion trips and to boost the work of the Ignatian Corps—a group of about 50 students attending retreats and meetings to build leadership skills and help fellow students connect with the center.
