Léman Manhattan Preparatory School graduated its inaugural senior class on Saturday June 1 in their ballroom on 41 Broad Street. The graduation honored 20 students who will be attending top universities in the fall, including the University of Pennsylvania, Duke, John Hopkins University, and the American University of Paris, among others. The commencement address was delivered by Luanne Zurlo, Founder and President of Worldfund, a non-profit dedicated to raising the quality of education in Latin America. Zurlo is also an Adjunct Professor at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., and a member of Léman Manhattan’s advisory board.
“The class of 2013 has defined the Léman spirit – they have installed a legacy of academic excellence, international-mindedness, and dedication to community that sets the tone for future generations at Léman,” said Drew Alexander, Head of School. “We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our seniors and are honored to partner with Luanne Zurlo in initiating such an important annual tradition.”
