The Lion's Pride

Winter 2021-2022

I am delighted to share with you the Winter 2021-2022 edition of The Lion's Pride, Horace Mann School's alumni e-newsletter highlighting news from campus, alumni mentorship opportunities, updates on alumni and faculty achievements, and upcoming events, among other topics.

If you happen to live in the NYC region, we hope you’ll join fellow alumni, administrators, and faculty at the 19th Annual Alumni Council Benefit… in person, on campus, and under the stars! The event takes place on Tuesday, April 19th and features student-led tours of the school’s newest facilities – including Lutnick Hall and the Jeffrey H. Loria Family Aquatic Center – followed by a festive cocktail reception and silent auction. All proceeds support the Student Lunch Initiative, which covers the cost of school lunches for students in Grades 6-12 who receive financial aid. Details are included in this newsletter.

Please feel free to share your own alumni news or suggestions for future articles by emailing Stay safe and well!
