On Tuesday, September 24, Browning's Alumni Association hosted the Class of 2000 Distinguished Speaker Series featuring R. Thomas Herman '64. Mr. Herman is a former reporter and columnist at The Wall Street Journal and has been a member of Browning's Board of Trustees for more than 30 years. The evening began with a private roundtable discussion specifically for alumni donors to spend time with Headmaster Clement and Mr. Herman in an intimate setting in the new technology lab. Mr. Herman shared slides highlighting "Browning at 125: Tradition and Change," while Mr. Clement spoke similarly on the state of the School in its 125th year. Following the roundtable, guests joined a larger group of alumni and current parents in the new cafeteria for Mr. Herman's keynote presentation on "The Future of the Media: Sunrise or Sunset?" His address was followed by a Q&A session and networking reception for all guests. We are most grateful for Mr. Herman's time and efforts with this special event and his continued involvement with Browning.
