Prize-winning poet and Lawrenceville alumnus Dennis Nurkse ’66 returned to campus recently as the 2018-19 Merrill Poet. During his residency on campus, Nurkse was a guest lecturer in English classes, led a poetry master class with students and alumni, and read from his works during an event in the Edith Memorial Chapel.
The sixth annual Celebration of Black Lawrentians, co-sponsored by the Lawrenceville Black Alumni Association (LBAA) and the student-run Alliance of Black Cultures (ABC), offered an inspiring view into the talents and aspirations of the School’s Black students and an insightful window into the Lawrenceville Black experience.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
