Fr. Ken Boller, S.J. (president), Jim Horan, '70 (VP for planning and principal giving) and Michael Wieners, '04 (director of alumni relations) escaped the frozen tundra of Jersey City last week to bring a bit of Grand & Warren to the Sunshine State. Four regional receptions gave alumni a chance to catch up with each other, and with life at Prep. Special thanks to our volunteer hosts!

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) has announced the results of the Seventeenth Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM).
