Dear Wickersham Family,
This is one of the most wonderful letters I have been asked to write! THANK YOU (or, more à propos, “MERCI”) is what I really want to say to you for creating this game-changing grant allowing us teachers—and our families—to go together on otherwise cost-prohibitive adventures that refresh and renew us.
Our Wickersham Grant supported a dreamy, once-in-a-lifetime adventure at the Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera, where we showcased our short film, “A Work of Art.” My daughter Sylvie (RLS ‘19) and my wife Manon (RLS faculty) joined me. Our film was among 8 world finalists at the American Pavilion’s Emerging Filmmakers competition.
Merci Beaucoup, Wickershams—thank you so very much for your gift!
Steph, Manon & Sylvie Pratt
