  • Campaign Chair Constance Fernandez P'22

    The generosity of our community

    I agreed to chair the REinventing Excellence campaign nearly a year ago when my co-chair, Jeff Miller ’79, retired from the RE Board of Trustees. The world was rapidly changing, and we couldn’t imagine what was to come. Fast forward to 2021, and I cannot begin to summarize the events of the last year, but I do know that REinventing Excellence has succeeded in ways that have delighted and surprised us all. This community’s generosity has given me even more confidence in our incredible school. I am so grateful to each and every one of you who has donated to the campaign through your generous gifts, pledges, annual gifts and planned gifts – thank you!

Students and faculty were greeted by the lettering when they returned from winter break; each plaque serving as both an identifier and lasting tribute.
