Afro Puff Chronicles really is the gift that keeps on giving. Through conducting interviews with dozens of fabulous women, (more interviews to come soon) I was able to meet one of my high school alums, Mrs. April Bauknight. We immediately connected, and while chatting, I asked her, “Hey, wouldn’t it be awesome if there was an alumni/student mentor-mentee program at Kent Place?” From that simple question, the Making the Connection program was formed. We are a mentorship service that provides middle and high school girls of color at Kent Place School with alumni mentors as well as host biannual events such as our greatly anticipated brunches. Last weekend, we had our Fall brunch, which was a huge success! We had discussions about school life back when alumni had attended the school, and contrasted it with the Kent Place of today. We were briefed on the future diversity initiatives in place at our school, and most importantly, we had these conversations over an amazing spread of food!! Below are some pictures from the event. Thank you to everyone who attended!
