We continue our series of stellar 101: BOARD MEMBER BIOS by introducing Jennifer Lane McGuirk! Jenny just completed 3 years with the 101: Fund and is instrumental in fundraising and maintaining our database of amazing donors (like you!) and deserving scholarship recipients. Jenny, who works in Development at Princeton University, recently dedicated an enormous amount of time and energy updating our database, and we are fortunate to have her skill and experience at work for the 101: Fund!

What do you want to communicate to the Princeton community about the 101: Fund?

The Princeton community is very committed to education and more socio-economically diverse than people may think. We need to make sure all of our children can pursue the education of their dreams.

Name one memory or story during your tenure that was personally meaningful or satisfying.

I love the talent show. I will never forget the first year I attended. The auditorium was packed and the commitment and enthusiasm of the PHS student body was just awesome. Great, great kids.
