In the first issue of the 2021-22 school year, we introduce PD's strategic framework for 2030 and beyond; Grant Williams '16 introduces the Grant D. Williams '16 Endownment; the Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (EIB) team ushers in a new era of EIB at PD; the student services team grows to meet student needs; and much more!
Many in the PD community have enjoyed following the career of Grant Williams ’16, who attended the University of Tennessee and was selected in the first round of the NBA draft in 2019 as a player for the Boston Celtics. Williams recently decided to create the Grant D. Williams ’16 Endowment to help students attend PD. A component of the aid award, which is to be given annually to one incoming student beginning with the current school year, is the opportunity for the recipients to be personally mentored by Williams.
