As Prep’s sesquicentennial class of 2022 nears the end of their first marking period, Prep’s quasqicentennial, way back in 1997, might seem a distant memory. But as part of Prep’s 125th anniversary celebrations, alumni were invited to share their Prep stories, which were compiled in The Prep We Remember: Looking Back at 125 Years of Pride & Glory. The booklet, a kind of oral history of life at Grand & Warren spanning the 1930s to the 1990s, was included in a 1999 issue of Prep Magazine. Nearly 20 years later, we ran across a copy in our archives, and if you’re looking for some light reading this weekend, you might consider taking a look through these stories. Some are moving, some are hilarious, some push the limits of plausibility, but all evoke the storytelling and laughter that fill the room, wherever and whenever two or three Prep alumni are gathered in the same place.
