Alumni Challenge:

THANK YOU Class of 2018 “Gifts” New Patio Members of the Class of 2018 stopped by earlier this year to enjoy the traditional pre-Break JazzRock 2018 concert and then officially dedicate a new outdoor space (aka “The Patio”) adjacent to the Wharton Lessin Dining Hall. Despite damp and chilly conditions, D-E Alumni Relations together with Head of School Dr. De Jarnett, Upper School Principal Joe Algrant, and Class of 2018 / Class of 2022 Dean Kim Lalli (sporting her ‘ugly holiday’ sweater) were greeted with sunny alumni smiles.
