From Megan Klein - WP-ORG Fund Drive 44 PDF Print E-mail
Hello WP-ORG,
It's Fund Drive time, here's the link: http://www.west-point.org/donate

My name is Megan Klein - I am Jack Price's daughter. Jack was WP-ORG's CFO for 20+ years right up until his death on the 4th of April, 2018.

You didn't hear from me during our last fund drive because I was scrambling to keep my dad's responsibilities from falling through the cracks around here. Proof that we exist on a shoestring budget, just four days after my dad left us, we kicked off the fund drive to carry on his work without him.

Dad and I worked together managing all of WP-ORG's online registration and payment sites. Ours was a well-oiled machine and we were a fantastic team. Suddenly everything fell apart. Dad became sick and was hospitalized while I was on a ski vacation. I bought a plane ticket to Virginia from the top of the mountain at lunch on the first day and caught a flight out of Telluride three hours later. By the time I got to Dad in Virginia he was in ICU and ventilated. My brother was there. Mom has dementia and Dad was her caregiver. Cameron was trying to manage both parents. We were in Virginia for a month. We had a succession of family and friends come stay at Mom and Dad's to look after Mom during the day so we could get to the hospital.

After nearly two weeks Dad came off the ventilator and out of his fog of sedation. His first concern was Mom - was she okay? "Yes," we said. His second question was, "Is WP-ORG still alive?" Oh, for Pete's sake, "Yes, Dad, WP-ORG is still alive." Those two questions answered, he visibly relaxed.

Dad loved West Point; he adored his Class of '64 classmates. He felt blessed to be an American and to be alive. He loved people and easily developed deep, lasting friendships. He loved connecting people and took great pride in WP-ORG and all the personal connections it has fostered over the years.

Since my dad's death, my brother Cameron Price '96 has joined the WP-ORG Board of Advisors. I know this development would make Dad's heart sing if he were here to see it.

Please help us keep this dream alive. We're committed. We need your support.
