F&M College Prep alumni from the past two years made a surprise visit on campus to meet the 71 rising high-school seniors attending F&M College Prep 2013. The "grads" came back to share their insights about a program they said made a tremendous difference in their lives.
In the three years since F&M President Daniel R. Porterfield launched the initiative, F&M College Prep's influence and participation by rising high school seniors has grown. This year, 71 students traveled from 13 states across the country to participate in the three-week, pre-college immersion program.
Giving to F&M rose in the 2012-13 fiscal year, buoyed by record-high annual fund contributions and strong engagement with the College by alumni of all generations.
