SEED Dinner celebrates Diversity
The annual SEED Diversity Dinner was held on April 26 in the Student Life Center. Approximately 450 guests attended, honoring the graduating seniors and welcoming the incoming freshmen. Families were asked to bring dishes that represented their culture or ethnic background, and with over 100 families, the food was plentiful! Speakers included seniors and freshmen, as well as parents, who gave testimony to the success of the SEED program.
SEED (Students for Educational Excellence through Diversity) celebrated its anniversary this year as an integral and important program in the Prep Community, promoting racial, academic, socio-economic, and cultural diversity at Fairfield Prep. The theme for this year’s event was “Colors of the Rainbow” in honor of our rich cultural differences. Dr. Donna Andrade, the founder of the SEED program was honored for her vision and the rich legacy of the program.
Special thanks to Mrs. Alecia Thomas, Director of Diversity & Academic Support Services, her committee, Prep families, and Prep staff members for making this evening possible.
