Students were political canvassers, escape room artists, physicists, fashionistas, inventors, thought leaders, collaborators, activists, change agents, and boat builders, among many other identities, during Project Week 2019.
September 26 has always been a very special day in Pingry's history, and last week was no exception. The Pingry community came together to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Dr. Pingry's birthday with the School's first-ever Day of Giving.
On both campuses students celebrated by wearing their favorite spirit wear, enjoying birthday sweets, participating in videos, and posting on social media about how they chose to Ring the Bell. Hundreds of faculty, staff, alumni, and parents got in on the fun too, sharing their Pingry pride and making their annual contribution to The Pingry Fund—allowing the School to unlock a $200,000 challenge grant!
"Wednesday was an incredible day for Pingry," remarked Jon Wilf '02, Trustee and Chair of the Pingry Fund. "As a community, we came together and raised funds that will support students and faculty in all areas of focus. Also, the high level of participation we saw from our community is a true testament to the confidence that our faculty, staff, parents, and alumni have in the current direction and future aspirations of the School."
