PREUSS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
TRITON TODAY
How would you like to celebrate Preuss Alumni Association Day?
Birdies4Preuss Surpassed its goal!
It is our pleasure to announce that thanks to the help of alumni like you, we raised nearly  $25,000 through Birdies for Charity! 

With the generous support of Preuss Alumni, Board and
Founders Circle Members, Mentors, Faculty, and Friends, we were able to raise  more than our $20,000 goal, and will officially name one current-use school day in honor of:
The Preuss Alumni Association!
THANK YOU for your participation!
