ALUMNI CHANGING THE WORLD

Andrew Thaler '03

Dr. Andrew Thaler '03 found that his interest in marine biology began as a student intern at Baltimore's National Aquarium, where he bred seahorses. As a junior at Boys' Latin, he spent a semester at The Island School in the Bahamas. Next stop: Duke University, where he majored in biology to prepare for his Ph.D. research in marine biology at Duke's prestigious Marine Lab in Beaufort, NC. He studied deep-sea organisms from a hydrothermal vent near Papua New Guinea. To see what's new for this conservation geneticist, read this recent article or check out his blog: Southern Fried Science (southernfriedscience.com).

From the Director of Alumni Relations


A Laker for Life, An Active Alum by Choice

Our alumni are the envy of other schools. Not only are their collective achievements extraordinary, their commitment to one another and the school is unparalleled. Leading the charge are the more than 1,900 active members of the Alumni Association at Boys' Latin School who each year outpace other schools in alumni giving.

The alumni network is such an invaluable asset to our graduates. Our school makes a concerted effort to continuously involve our alumni in virtually all that we do, which is why there's solid alumni representation on our board and within the school community.

From sponsored lunches and the annual golf outing to the Bull and Oyster Roast and Homecoming Weekend, we invite alumni throughout the year to return to campus and stay in touch with their BL brothers.

BOYS' LATIN SCHOOL Alumni Association

One of the core values we seek to pass on at Boys' Latin is a sense of responsibility for one another and the generations to come.

You see it in our best-in-class peer mentoring programs, and in more symbolic ways like our annual first-day-of-school parade, with the incoming senior class walking in hand-in-hand with the fresh new class of kindergarteners, and our unforgettables senior farewells.

You can also see this commitment in our active and engaged alumni program at BL, and in the way our alumni participate at levels unseen at many of our peer institutions.

Alumni News & Events

Alumni Basketball Game

Before BL's varsity game against Calvert Hall on January 13, the Maroon Lakers (odd years) defeated the White Lakers (even years), 58-54. Pat Spencer '15 was the leading scorer in the game with many of his points coming on dunk shots. Tim Mering '72 was the "most veteran" player on the white team and Lowell Sherrod '73 was the "most veteran" player on the maroon squad. Tim and Lowell played on BL's 23-2 championship basketball team together back in 1972.

3rd Annual Networking Initiative for Young Alumni

The Alumni/Development Office hosted its third networking program for our young alumni on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 6:00 pm in the Alumni House. For the third year in a row, BL graduates from the years 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 had the chance to connect with mentors who could help them with their future careers. If you would like to get involved in helping young BL graduates after they leave Boys' Latin, contact Mac Kennedy at mkennedy@boyslatinmd.com for more information.

Alumni Hockey Game

More than 20 Lakers participated in this year's Alumni Hockey game. The "young" White team won the game, 9-8, over a more "veteran" Maroon team. Brian Lichtenauer '13 was given the Gene Ubriaco '89 MVP Award. Brian scored a goal and assisted on five other tallies for the winning White team.

Annual Bull & Oyster Roast

Thanks for joining us at the 57th Annual Boys' Latin Bull & Oyster Roast on Saturday, November 19 in the Gelston Athletic Center. The evening was a huge success, from the live and silent auctions to the raffles and all-you-can-eat oysters and pit beef! Click here to watch highlights from the event.

Get Involved!

The Boys' Latin Alumni Association offers a variety of activities throughout the year for alumni to return to campus and renew old friendships.

The Alumni Association is led by a group of dedicated BL graduates and sponsors many events, including Alumni lunches, the Bull and Oyster Roast, annual Golf Outing, and Homecoming.

Alumni Board 2016-2017


The BL Alumni Board of Directors oversees the Alumni Association activities. Alumni who want to get more involved with the school are encouraged to consider joining the Alumni Association.

The Alumni Association is also developing active chapters outside of Baltimore. An Alumni chapter is an organized group of Boys' Latin Alumni volunteers in a designated geographic region of at least 30 Alumni. Currently, there is an Alumni Chapter in New York City with plans to open other chapters in other areas of the country in the near future.

The Alumni Association has launched a networking program for our young alumni, and we encourage everyone in the BL community to get involved helping mentor our young alumni. The goal is to help our younger Lakers with their future careers. We introduce our younger graduates to the scores of BL mentors collectively on an annual basis and individually on a case-by-case basis.
