We are grateful for the opportunity to organize this scholarship fund in his name as a testimony to his leadership as Chair of the Board, and recognize the many ways in which he has assisted the schools where there have been specific needs.
In recognition of Brother Donald Johanson’s eleventh year as Brother Visitor, we acknowledge the support and involvement in the District’s educational mission that has been a hallmark of his leadership. His personal commitment to the spiritual and professional dimensions of our mission has resulted in the justified pride we as a District take in the achievements and stability of the programs offered by our institutions and ministries.
It is especially important to note the emphasis Brother Donald has given to encourage and guide the schools to have resources in place that assist families who have difficulty meeting the financial costs of such an education. The Lasallian Christian Brothers Foundation, as one form of support, was reconstituted by Brother Donald to assist the schools in that effort.
