Strong Turnout for Headmaster's Challenge Event in NYC
Millbrook alumni gathered with faculty at The Ainsworth in New York City yesterday evening to enjoy hors d'oeuvres, connect, and celebrate the Headmaster's Challenge.
The Headmaster’s Challenge is a fundraising event that heats up in February where alumni participate in friendly competition around supporting Millbrook. During this year’s challenge, alumni from 1990-2016 are competing against each other for the highest percent participation.
Another exciting component of this year's challenge is that our campus will be bathed in blue light as alumni participation increases. Millbrook students will ceremoniously light up the Millbrook campus blue to celebrate alumni support, which will culminate by spotlighting the Flagler Memorial Chapel. So many alumni have already donated to the Annual Fund, which was celebrated by the first blue campus lighting yesterday evening.
The Headmaster's Challenge event in New York City is also an opportunity to celebrate Millbrook’s continued growth and to discuss goals to continue the momentum. Millbrook continues to make thoughtful improvements including our new dining hall, the fantastic renovations in Prum Meeting Hall, and the rennovations of the Mill, while still remaining true to our core values, both in pedagogy and appearance. “Every student is still needed and known,” said Headmaster Drew Casertano yesterday evening.
The competition is certainly heating up and alumni will gather again in Boston, MA, on February 22. Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for updates throughout the Headmaster's Challenge, as well as check out our photo gallery later this week for photographs from the event at The Ainsworth.
We look forward to a fun competition over the coming weeks and to see which classes earn victory!
