To our Alumni and Alumni families,
In our professional roles at Wheeler, and our experiences as a Black parent of two Wheeler alumni and a Black alumna, in partnership with Allison Gaines Pell, Head of School, and Board Chair Alisia St. Florian ‘86, we want you to know that we hear you and with profound understanding, humility, and gratitude, we welcome your reflections about your time at Wheeler. We are deeply sorry if even for one day, you as a Black student or a student of color felt unsupported or harmed. Over the last decade, we have been working to create an inclusive and equitable community; there is still so much to be done! Your voice, your experience, and your disappointment will be our guide in dismantling the racist systems which have not held us accountable when we failed to live the spirit of our mission.
Please share your reflections or Director of Alumni Engagement Your words will be shared with our , gathering this summer to make concrete recommendations for actions moving forward and will keep you informed.or you may directly contact Head of School, Director of Unity & Diversity
We are working to create a school you will be proud to call your alma mater. We will! We must!
With love and care,
Princess Sirleaf Bomba, Director of Unity and Diversity and Kelly Clifton ‘02, Director of Alumni Engagement
