During an evening of laughter, poignancy, and energy, more than 500 community members gathered in a festively adorned Nicholas Athletic Center to celebrate the installation of Dr. Jennifer Price as BB&N's fourth head of school. The event signified the ceremonial beginning of her tenure at the school, but based on the comments of the speakers and tone of the evening, it was abundantly clear that in just her first three months, Dr. Price already has had a dramatic impact.
The 十一月ember 15th event featured speakers from all strata of the school community—including students from all three campuses—welcoming Price with humorous and thoughtful gifts, along with various performances that displayed the wide array of student talents. An 上学校 string quartet set the scene prior to the program and a funny performance by the 中学 student improv troupe allowed Price's daughter, BB&N eighth grader Elsie, the opportunity to roast her mother (much to the delight of the hundreds of guests in attendance). Capping the evening was a rousing rendition of "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" by the One School One Choir (如下图所示），合作演唱组由教师，职员，以及上，下学的学生，作为观众拍手和时间左右。
“我有巨大的财富是一个学生博士价格的校长，指导者，以她的导师，最得意的一个朋友，” muumba说。 “而穿着这些帽子，我所看到的和感觉到，第一手，惊奇感，她带给每一种情况和每一个她所接触的人。”
Muumba outlined numerous lessons she had learned from Dr. Price: "Buckingham Browne & Nichols School, you are so fortunate to have Dr. Jennifer Price as the new Head of School," she spoke, with a tissue box nearby in the event of tears. "Dr. Price is a walking manifestation of what she believes in: kindness, strength, equality, inclusion, resilience, and scholarship. She represents what she wants the world to look like, and it will someday, because she was here in it."
When Price took to the podium, she began by thanking all in attendance for the opportunity to join BB&N, including a special shout-out to the students: "You are the reason I am here. In my short time at BB&N, I have been blown away by you all."
"Education clearly transforms lives. Here at BB&N, we have and continue to impact lives. This is a place where we provide life-changing opportunities for all of our students. I am honored and humbled to be trusted to lead this school into its next chapter of transforming lives and educating the next generation of Knights who will help leave this world just a little bit better than they found it."
As guests left the evening in high spirits, it was evident that BB&N's next chapter of transformation had already begun.
