The McDermott Family, Michael McDermott ’83 and Amanda Bi, in honor of their daughter Allegra ’18, have made a $50,000 gift to establish an endowed fund to support teacher and student development in World Languages and Cultures. Specifically, these funds will be used to support instruction in Mandarin and provide faculty and students with resources they can use to further their immersion into their study of Mandarin and Chinese culture.
Members of the Class of 2017 had an extraordinary year in college admissions. Over 90% of the class will attend a college ranked in the top 10% in America and 100% of the graduating class was admitted to a selective four-year college or university—including such prestigious schools as Stanford, Columbia, Dartmouth, West Point, Williams, Wellesley, Smith, Johns Hopkins, Berkeley, UCLA, Northwestern, U of Chicago, Middlebury, Tufts, Haverford, and Carleton, along with multiple acceptances to The Claremont Colleges, NYU, and USC. We even have our first student going to the highly selective Yale University NUS program in Singapore!
