“What a fantastic night,” said Bryn Mawr President Jane McAuliffe afterward. “There was incredible joy in the room and such an appreciation for what the Posse Program has meant to both the Posse Scholars and the entire Bryn Mawr community. I was especially honored to share the podium once again with President Vickers, who played such a central role in bringing Posse to Bryn Mawr.”

Speakers at the event included McAuliffe, Vickers, First Lady Patrick, Posse Foundation Regional Vice President Sue Dalelio,  Boston City Councilwoman  Ayanna Presley,  and former Posse Scholar Jackney Prioly ’06, who is now Presley’s director of external relations.

First Lady Patrick serves on the Board of the Posse Foundation and has been a mentor to current Bryn Mawr Posse Scholar Gabrielle Farrell ’12 (as Farrell wrote on her blog following the event).
