The prefects — many of whom have worked several past Summer Programs — agree that this year’s group was an exceptionally loving, joyful, and intelligent class of programmers who lit up the campus with their presence. Thank you, parents, for raising such excellent men and women and giving us the opportunity to get to know them. We look forward to seeing many of them as members of Thomas Aquinas College’s Classes of 2026 and 2027!
We hope you have enjoyed this blog! We are deeply grateful for the tireless efforts of the two students pictured below, writer/reporter Peter King (’24) and photographer Regina Terreri (’23), who have worked around the clock for the last two weeks to produce such tremendous coverage!
And, while we are at it, let’s take a moment to thank the team of California Summer Program prefects (shown below at one of their daily meetings), who make the magic of this program happen. Whether it’s rising early to lead hikes or staying up late to clean the Coffee Shop, this crew does it all. May God bless them for their loving dedication!
