Recently, more than 60 members of the Pingry community, from all three divisions, gathered on Zoom for the school's first-ever HBCU alumni panel. Six Pingry graduates shared their experiences—here's what they had to say.
Over 7,200 members strong, Pingry alumni are engaged, active members of the school community. Over 700 attend Reunion events each year, they support The Pingry Fund and other important financial needs of the school, and they are actively involved in the Pingry network. We welcome you to stay involved—read below to find out how!
Join us on a virtual road trip across America. This will be a terrific opportunity for the Pingry community to connect with fellow alumni and learn about how the School has adapted during these unprecedented times. Pingry administration, faculty, staff, and students will be featured to discuss how Pingry is innovating and meeting the challenge in this new educational environment. Please check our social media pages and your email for more information!
