Why We Bought A Brick For The Giving Walk
Jason Lopez, Head of School
As a family, Pernille and I support the causes and the organizations that we believe do good work in the world. We both believe that this was a value we have had since we were young and have embraced this practice with our own family. For me, I was a young boy when I first saw how generous my grandmother could be and the difference it made in my own life. To this day, the most generous person I've ever known was my grandmother, Maria Bravo. In this photo, Grandma Bravo was standing with "fourth grade me" as I showed off my elementary school sports jacket, after listening to me tell of my sports passions and accomplishments—though I'm now certain that she was simply being generous with her time. When we left our mark through the brick program, we were sure to use our family foundation, "The Bravo Foundation", to honor my grandmother.
The Shen Family, Current Parents
We purchased the bricks to commemorate our children’s time at Pegasus. We bought the bricks in 2019, the year our daughter graduated. It was a graduation gift for her, and our son’s was an early gift in anticipation of him graduating this year. While Pegasus has meant a great deal to our entire family, it is Kara and Matthew who walked these paths every day for 11 and 10 years respectively. I know that the memories from Pegasus will always be a part of Kara and Matthew, and now the memory of our children’s time at school here is a part of Pegasus too.
Brian and Teresa Cullen, Alumni Parents
Our family’s journey at The Pegasus School began in 2005 when we walked into Nancy Conklin’s office on a search for the best school for our oldest daughter, Linda, to start Kindergarten. Who would have imagined we would walk out that day with Dr. Hathaway’s lunch?
As all Pegasus families know, volunteering and giving to the school is essential to providing an outstanding educational experience, ensuring diversity, providing professional development for faculty, and maintaining a state-of-the-art campus. Our family became engaged with volunteering early on at Pegasus, with Teri supporting the annual spring benefit committee, serving as a wing-captain for On Golden Wings, and contributing as a Parent Ambassador. Brian joined the facilities committee in 2012, which to his surprise, would lead to joining the Board of Trustees and eventually serving as Board Chair for three years. Serving on the Board of Trustees and as Board Chair brought a lot of joy for Brian. He devoted a great deal of time when the school needed it and was extremely honored, privileged, and fortunate to work alongside so many talented fellow Trustees, Head of School, Jason Lopez, and CFO, Rene Cogan. Although there were some challenging times, Brian thoroughly enjoyed his experience on the Board and considered it one of the most rewarding experiences of his life.
One of the many positive outcomes of being part of the Pegasus community are the friendships that are created, not only for Linda and Jenny but as a family. From the very beginning of our Pegasus journey, we were fortunate to have met wonderful people who will always be part of our lives.
