Thank You For Your Support This Season
Following a successful season, which included a stellar performance by the Harvard Glee Club, the Harvard Club of Naples is taking a break until our Welcome Back Reception in early November.
As I reported at our April annual dinner meeting, the Club's work in encouraging outstanding local high school students to apply to Harvard resulted in record-breaking success this year, both in the number of applicants that our Schools Committee members interviewed and in the number of acceptances. Five local students were offered admission to Harvard, and an additional six were wait-listed. Since Harvard's admission rate was 2.8% this year, this is indeed a significant honor. We extend our best wishes for continued success to the four students who accepted the opportunity to join the Harvard Class of 2019: Julia Reed-Betts (Palmetto Ridge), Yanet Gomez (Lely), Elizabeth Roux (Gulf Coast), and Harrison Vollmer (Barron Collier).
We are planning another diverse selection of Harvard Club events for our next season, and we look forward to sharing these program offerings with you. You will receive a preliminary program along with membership renewal information in early September. In the meantime, on behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish you a happy summer.
With best wishes,
Jeanne E. Gullahorn '54
