Prep rolled out the maroon carpet last Saturday at the 9th annual 144 Grand Gala, presented by Academy and BCB Community Bank. And while no one in attendance is likely to turn up on TMZ, they were truly stars in their own right! Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and Gala guests, the Gala brought in nearly $360,000 to support a vital component of Prep's mission: financial assistance to Prep students and their families.
The first of two Prep on the Road gatherings in May will take place next Saturday, May 7. Jennifer and Bill Hoffman, '90 will welcome us for Mass, light refreshments, and fellowship with the Prep community in your community! Mass will begin at 5 p.m. (We'll also be in Colts Neck on May 22, at the home of Karey and Mark Hogan, '83)
As Monday's college matriculation deadline nears, five more members of the Class of 2016 have committed to continue their athletic endeavors at the next level. Please join us in congratulating two wrestlers, two swimmers, and one runner who committed this week!
Based on the nominations submitted by the Prep community over the winter, and the advice of the Athletic Hall of Fame Selection Committee, the Prep Alumni Board has voted to choose the next class of inductees for the Prep Athletic Hall of Fame! Mark your calendars...we will honor this distinguished group on October 27 at the Fiesta in Wood-Ridge.
Wednesday morning brought overcast skies to Grand & Warren, but the Class of 2017 enjoyed a moment in the sun nonetheless, as the annual Junior Class Mass provided an opportunity to give thanks for three years well lived at Prep, and look ahead to assuming leadership roles in the school community next year.
