Daniel Cheruiyot (top left), an EaSEP alum starting his senior year at Northwestern, wrote a tribute to EaSEP which was read by his brother. His parents, Eric and Audrey Cheruiyot, are both board members. Daniel was also instrumental in arranging for current EaSEP students to meet with representatives from Northwestern, Vanderbilt and Johns Hopkins this summer.
At bottom left, alums Victoria Kiplagat (Brown junior) and Geof Yatich (Wesleyan junior) pose with Kirwa Boit at the fundraiser.
