Past & Present Magazine: Exploring The Path To Excellence

The Crescent School experience plays an important role in the life of every alumnus, but how does it impact the lives of Black alumni? That’s the question explored in the cover story of Crescent’s newest Past & Present magazine.

The Summer 2021 issue features five Black alumni – Michael Williams ’85, Jason Melbourne ’90, Andrew Lindsay ’97, Toye Ojo ’09 and Jordan Grant ’14 – who reflect on what drives their success. Despite challenges specific to the Black experience, they have advanced in their careers while supporting others along the way.

Other profiles in the magazine share how Toronto Star investigations editor Dave Bruser ’95 works with a team of reporters to uncover stories the public needs to know, and how Mike Comisarow ’93, founder of Daytrippers, helps make it possible for underprivileged children across Canada to enjoy enriching school field trips.

Also in the Summer 2021 issue:
  • News about Crescent School’s acquisition of the seven-acre Bob Rumball Centre property
  • Advice from Sherman Wong ’02 about how to protect ourselves from cyber risk
  • Tips from Myles Slocombe ’92 for buying a house in an ultra-competitive market
  • Catching up with former Headmaster Chris Gordon P’87, who was interviewed by his son Barry Gordon ’87, P’21
