CORE 4 VALUES
Buffalo Prep integrated the Core 4 Values into its programming. Students who exemplify the Core 4 Values are nominated by their peers to receive recognition. Each year Buffalo Prep highlights a specific value. The 2017-2018 year focused on Integrity. 1. Integrity - Uncompromising adherence to honesty and a code of values. 2. Excellence - Possessing great qualities in high degree; always going above and beyond; being the very best you can be. 3. Responsibility - Reliability or dependability; possessing moral and mental accountability. 4. Leadership - Exhibiting INTEGRITY, EXCELLENCE, and RESPONSIBILITY, and inspiring others to be the best they can be.
A letter from the Board President and Executive Director Buffalo Prep has experienced a year of significant change as we adapted to restructured leadership, welcomed new members to our staff and faculty, and adopted a strategic plan that challenges us to go deeper with the services we provide our students. Ensuring that their academic success is matched by their social and emotional well-being and feeling of empowerment is of utmost importance. We are in the process of transforming our curriculum to integrate a culturally relevant and sustaining pedagogy that not only prepares our students for the rigor of our partner high schools, but also reflects and celebrates their individuality, culture, and inherent talents while engaging them as democratic citizens. Visits to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Food Bank of WNY, and Jericho Road Community Health Center’s Vive Program as well as clean-up days with Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, and the University at Buffalo provided strategic active learning opportunities to mirror classroom material. This year of transition led to other innovative collaborations and strengthened existing partnerships. Our 19 partner high schools, the Bison Scholarship Fund, the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood, the Buffalo Public Schools, Child & Family Services, the College Simulation Experience, the Education Collaborative of Western New York, Say Yes Buffalo, Teach for America, Westminster Economic Development Initiative, and additional programs are equally driven by the belief that all students should be expected to succeed and given the opportunity to do so. When educational equity is attained, prepared and empowered students translate into a robust community and workforce. With the creation of Alumni Prep, we expanded our impact on, and resources for, our students by extending our pipeline from the summer after 5th grade through college completion as well as internship and career placement. We now serve approximately 600 students and alumni annually and are thrilled to have alumna, Maya Meredith, on our staff, managing the implementation of this important next step in our history. Officially launching Phase II of our Prep for Tomorrow capital campaign is yet another exciting and necessary part of our evolution. With our community’s endorsement and financial support of Phase I, we now move on to fundraising for the outfitting of our state-of-the-art home, which is currently being renovated and brought up to code. All of this great success, the incredible foundation from which Buffalo Prep has been able to shift and mature, would not have been possible without the generosity and dedication of our donors. Thank you for being dedicated partners in Buffalo Prep’s imperative mission and dynamic advocates for these deserving scholars.
Mary Ann Coulson Buffalo Prep Board President
Patti L. Stephen Robert G. Wilmers Endowed Executive Director
We have grown from supporting 10 students in 1989 to supporting over 600 students and alumni annually as they work hard to achieve their education goals. In addition to increasing in this capacity, we have expanded our offerings and services and transformed our curriculum. With these exciting and needed changes, our evolution requires a state-of-the-art building, which our scholars so deserve. With our 30th anniversary on the horizon, we are thrilled to be able to witness the daily renovation progress at Allen Hall, our new home on the University at Buffalo’s South Campus. Our community’s substantial support of Phase I of the Prep for Tomorrow capital campaign was critical to Buffalo Prep surpassing its fundraising goal, garnering close to $1.7 million. Phase I covers the costs associated with refurbishment as well as core spatial planning and bringing the building up to code. As construction and compliance upgrades have begun, and we turn to Phase II of the Prep for Tomorrow campaign and buildout of innovative, fluid classrooms, offices, and technology, we sincerely thank co-chairs Jock and Betsy Mitchell for successfully shepherding both vital phases of the capital campaign. We are also grateful to the University at Buffalo for its continued belief in our mission and tremendous generosity. And, we thank you, our Buffalo Prep supporters and advocates for sharing your resources and sound advice, and for your willingness to be a part of this vital transition in our history. If you are interested in hearing more about how you can play a role as we enter this next chapter, including helping with the purchase of technology, please contact Director of Development, Christina Jurasek Schneemann, by emailing email@example.com.

The third annual happy hour during the Buffalo Bills Thursday night game brought together alumni, staff, and new and steadfast Buffalo Prep supporters to engage the young professional community while raising awareness about Prep’s programming and ways to get involved.
Celebration of Achievement, May 2018 A sold-out crowd of over 500 community advocates joined together at the annual Celebration of Achievement presented by M&T Bank at Kleinhans Music Hall. Co-chairs Alex and Michael Montante together with emcee WKBW 7 Eyewitness News Anchor Ashley Rowe, the Celebration of Achievement Committee, sponsors, Buffalo Prep staff, Board of Directors, and students and their families celebrated the accomplishments of the college-bound Buffalo Prep Scholars. This year’s event highlighted integrity as one of Buffalo Prep’s Core 4 Values. Of the graduating class, 73% of the students had participated in the Buffalo Prep program pipeline since the summer after 5th grade and 100% were accepted into college! Mr. Robert G.
