Annual NYC reception draws area alumni
Scores of alumni congregated in the Franklin Library of the Penn Club of New York welcoming Roxbury Latin luminaries Headmaster Kerry Brennan and long-time Classics Master John "Jack" Brennan to the city. Over hors d'oeuvres and drinks, Kerry updated guests on news of the School (including the inaugural immersion programs to France and Spain; the success of the fall athletic teams; and efforts to "bring the world" to the boys of Roxbury Latin). Jack Brennan thanked his former students in attendance for taking the time to stop by and reminded all the alumni that their time at R.L. was undoubtedly marked by a transformative relationship with a master, and that that relationship merited giving back to the School to ensure the legacy of committed teachers can continue.
The annual event, sometimes held at the Harvard Club across the street, drew record crowds. (see more photos)
