Faculty Member Stacey Duprey ’85 Receives “Scholar Hero Award” from A Better Chance
Posted June 25, 2012
Stacey Duprey ’85 was on hand at Princeton University on Sunday to receive the 2012 Scholar Hero Award during the end of the year ceremonies of A Better Chance, a non-profit that supports educational opportunities for young people of color. It was the first year for the award that recognizes faculty members who make their member school a happier and safer place for the A Better Chance students as well as the population at large. St. Andrew’s students nominated Stacey to thank her for all the work she does to make the School a better place for all students.
Stacey found St. Andrew's through A Better Chance and helped create the annual Martin Luther King Day Chapel Service and the Minority Student Council as a student in the mid-1980s. She then spent 15 years in the private sector working for Verizon before returning to St. Andrew’s as the Director of Girls’ Residential Life, Dorm Parent and Associate Director of Admission. She also served as the Co-Director for Diversity and Inclusivity for many years. Beyond her many duties, Stacey serves as a loving mentor to any student in need.
“We are thrilled and proud that Stacey is being recognized for her invaluable contributions to St. Andrew’s students and the life of her School,” praised Tad Roach. “She has opened her heart and home to a generation of students who join me in being forever thankful for her selflessness and generosity.”
Congratulations, Mrs. Duprey! We love you!
