Upper School faculty 2022-23

On April 14, the class of 2023 came together to kick off a long-standing Blake tradition—the senior class gift. This is an opportunity for seniors to leave their legacy with a Blake Fund gift toward an area they feel passionate about. 

This fundraising initiative is led by the LEAG (leadership, engagement, alumni, giving) Committee made up of six seniors whose focus is to educate their class on two subjects: what it means to be Blake alumni and school philanthropy. This year’s committee voted for gifts to support faculty professional development within the Blake Fund. 

The members expressed the importance of giving back to their teachers, noting: 

“As seniors, we truly understand the impact of our teachers on our learning experience and how we would be nowhere without them. We believe our teachers deserve support. Directing senior class gifts to faculty professional development is the best way to do this, improving the learning experience of students for years to come.”

Through various initiatives that inspire and encourage participation, the class of 2023 will work to reach their goal of 80 senior donors. Follow along on Blake’s social media platforms to see how this year’s senior class gift progresses!
