“We are excited to welcome Marmeline to our board,” said Ismini Scouras, Executive Director of Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation. “As a Catholic school parent, supporter and graduate, Marmeline understands that providing a safe, supportive and robust learning environment for the youth of Long Island in these challenging times is more important than ever.” Petion-Midy has over 20 years of experience in Finance with various companies. Prior to joining American Express in March 2020, Petion-Midy was VP, Business Controller at OppenheimerFunds. Petion-Midy is also immersed in the Catholic school community on Long Island having served from 2015 to 2017 as the President of the parent board at St. Joseph School in Garden City, where both of her daughters attended. Her daughters are now students at Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead where her oldest daughter is a senior and her youngest daughter is a sophomore. "Our Catholic schools educate the entire person: mind, body and soul. They ensure that their graduates know and understand their roles as citizens of the church, their community, and the world at large, sending them to make a positive impact and lead with conviction,” said Petion-Midy. “However, financials are most often the barrier against obtaining such a wonderful education. Tomorrow's Hope aims to bridge that gap and make Catholic school education affordable for many more families. I am happy to contribute to such a cause and ensure that many more families can experience the wonderful education that both my daughters and I were blessed to have experienced.” ### The mission of Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation is to ensure the excellence as well as the continuance of Catholic Schools on Long Island by increasing awareness and by providing scholarship and program funding for the needs of students and schools. www.tomorrowshopefoundation.org
