What do you appreciate about your George School experience?
George School is such a strong and supportive community. It inspired us to value the good in everything and allowed us to grow and learn from people who are different from us. The immense diversity present in our community challenged what we knew and helped us alter our ways of thinking and communicating for the better.
Why did you get involved in Students for George School and what did you enjoy about it?
We got involved in the George School Fund to show our love for George School. It was a chance to share something we were both passionate about and gave us an opportunity to talk about all of the things we love about the school. We enjoyed educating other students about how the George School Fund helps both the education and everyday life at George School. They were surprised by the number and diversity of the programs the George School Fund supports on campus.
Why do you feel it’s important for seniors (and now young alumni) to give to George School?
By giving to the George School Fund, seniors and young alumni are not only commemorating the amazing gifts that George School gave them, but also applauding the special people on campus who helped them become the individuals they are today.
