Matt Mena ’17 has a passion for music and cooking. He’s been playing the trumpet since second grade (he’s a “first-rate trumpeter” according to faculty member Pat Clements), and discovered a love for cooking in middle school, when he would recreate meals for his family from the Food Network.
It’s an eclectic group: a few Peddie seniors and a newly enrolled freshman; local triathletes in training; faculty members and their kids; moms looking to get in a workout. Gathered on the Peddie track Monday evening, they shared the simple joy of running.
Twenty-seven rising seniors are currently participating in Peddie's Research Science Signature Experience, a program that helps upper-level students pursue their scientific interests and encourages them to consider careers in science-related fields.
Peddie welcomes two new administrators to campus this month. Mindy Rose will take on the role of director of college counseling and Molly Dunne will serve as director of admission. Ray Cabot, who served as director of admission for the past eleven years, will assume a new role on campus as assistant head for strategic planning.
153 graduates were celebrated on center campus Sunday during the 148th annual commencement ceremony at Peddie School. Board of Trustees Chair Elizabeth Silverman assisted Headmaster Peter Quinn with the presentation of diplomas.
