Preparing Boys for Life

Maroon & Gold Society members help mark “topping out” of the forthcoming Middle School

On Oct. 17, nearly 150 members of the Maroon & Gold Society gathered to celebrate their leadership support of the School. Attendees were also invited to sign the final beam that represents the “topping out” of the new $18 million Middle School. The beam was placed on the steel structure the following day, and had also been signed by Haverford’s Middle School students, faculty, and administration.

The Maroon & Gold Society was established in 1997 to provide recognition for leadership gifts of $2,500 or more. The gifts provide essential support for operations, capital projects, endowed funds, and tuition assistance. 

“We are grateful to those who have given to The Haverford Fund to support the School’s operating needs, to endowment to support our boys and faculty – another key priority of the Character at Our Core campaign, or to capital needs as we build a new Middle School expertly designed for the adolescent boy,” said Headmaster Dr. John Nagl. “As investors in Haverford, we are all part of something larger than ourselves; the beam signing enabled our community to leave their mark on the new Middle School, the final piece of our 20-year campus master plan.”
