BARTON — Chittenden County developer Tony Pomerleau has given St. Paul’s School here a very big birthday gift.
He will match every dollar the school raises up to $120,000.
This year the school turns 120. The class that started school this fall is the one hundred-twentieth entering the parish school; the one that will graduate in the spring will be the one hundred twentieth to graduate.
Mr. Pomerleau heard about the anniversary and wanted to do something special because he has connections to both Barton and Catholic schools, said St. Paul’s Principal Joanne Beloin. She said that Mr. Pomerleau is a regular donor to the school, but she certainly never expected a gift of this magnitude.
“He challenged us with such a generous match,” she said on Tuesday. “We did not expect that at all.”
