mission Prep for Prep develops ethical and effective leaders who reect our diverse society for the enduring beneďŹ t of all. The Prep Community includes over 5,000 students and alumni.


Dear Friends, In its first 40 years, has Prep for Prep delivered on its promise to create a generation of diverse leaders for our democracy? The answer is resounding and unequivocal: Yes. Our alumni body now boasts over 3,000 superbly educated college graduates and, true to our mission, they are rising to leadership positions in our nation’s defining institutions. During a tumultuous time in this country, they are ethical and effective voices in the debates shaping the future direction of our nation. This year’s report highlights individuals who reflect the core values that have led to Prep’s success. • Excellence — Joseph Myrie, MD (XXIV) and Amanda Boston, PhD (XXII), both recent doctorates dedicated

to improving their communities in their respective fields of study • Integrity— Lauren Williams (P9 XIII), an accomplished journalist influencing the way newsrooms report on

culture and history • Commitment — Prep Trustees Dale Allsopp (VII), Scott Bok, Lisa Cashin, Natalie Swaby Hutchinson (XIV),

and Sue Meng (XV), sustaining and shaping generations of leadership development at Prep for Prep • Courage — Sarah DeSouza (XXXIV), a lead organizer of the citywide school walkouts protesting gun violence,

bringing together over 2,000 youth and educators across Brooklyn More than just accomplished, our alumni embrace an ethos of giving back to their many communities. Their service starts at Prep: nine alumni on the Board — an all-time high — and 12 on the Associates Council. Alumni giving increased by nearly $115,000 over last year. And, within months of defending his doctoral dissertation in education, Jackson Collins (XII) assumed the role of Associate Executive Director at Prep. Even more reassuring, current students — more than 700 at the nation’s leading independent schools and over 600 enrolled at the best colleges in the world — are as impressive as ever. Further evidence of the program’s value came when Fiscal Year 2018 proved our most successful fundraising year ever with nearly $12 million raised. We have this year’s Lilac Ball Honorees to thank for that feat: Martin Lipton and John L. Vogelstein, two of Prep’s founding Board Chairs who have collectively served the organization more than 65 years and gave and raised a remarkable $5.3 million for the event. What a defining moment for Prep when Michael Thomas (XXIV), the 132nd President of the Harvard Law Review, presented them with their awards. Our challenge going forward will be to honor their legacy by ensuring that the program has the resources to fund its critical work. As we stand on the threshold of another decade, I invite you all to deepen and strengthen your ties to Prep. Our work to create a new leadership class has never been more important. With gratitude,

Aileen C. Hefferren
