Dear Packer Alumni,


I wanted to reach out to all of you to introduce myself. I am Packer's new Director of Alumni. As you know, I have big shoes to fill — for 13 years Dona Laughlin has kept so many of you connected to each other and to the School. That is the mission of an alumni director —keeping you connected to the people and happenings at the school, connecting you with your classmates, and helping you forge new friendships across the years.


I had the opportunity to work alongside Dona for several weeks, and I have heard so many stories about you — your love for your favorite teachers, mentors, and coaches, your sense of gratitude for the differences they made in your lives, and your lifelong friendships with one another. I am inspired by the passion and dedication that you feel for this institution and its mission, and I'm looking forward to working with you.


A word about my background: a native Texan, I have spent the last 13 years of my career working to increase alumni engagement at colleges and universities in New York. I'm looking forward to doing the same at this historic and impactful institution at the heart of the borough I call home.


Please reach out to me any time with stories about your Packer experiences, ideas for the future, or simply feedback on how we can better connect with you. Send me an email, or call me at (718) 250-0229, or, best of all, meet me in person whenever you come back to visit!


I look forward to getting to know you.




David Minder
