In less than a month, Prep's Class of 2017 will go from students to alumni at our 139th commencement. But as we say, it's not just Prep for four years...it's Prep for Life! Here's a look at some of what's in store for the Class of '17 after graduation day.
The school year is beginning to wind down, but Prep's Alumni Spirituality Committee is still in full swing, and invites you to two special events in the coming week: the annual Emmaus Walk in Liberty State Park this Sunday, and an opportunity next Wednesday for friends and classmates of Dan Cooney, '15 to celebrate Dan and his memory.
After 45 years in Prep's history department, 2009 Legends of Prep honoree – and Prep's longest-serving active faculty member – Carl DeLorenzo, '67 taught his last classes on Wednesday, the last class day for seniors. A surprise awaited him on Warren Street, where hundreds of students and colleagues had gathered to salute his outstanding service to Prep as he prepares to retire.
Congratulations to 450 students who have achieved first honors, second honors, or honorable mention for the third marking period! The full honor roll is available here.
Join your fellow Prep parents on the Warren Street Plaza on May 19, and celebrate the end of the school year, the start of summer, and the parents of the Class of 2017! We’ll share drinks and appetizers – and a wonderful evening together – while live music sets the mood for a great summer!
