They were accompanied by MBS Director of Community Service Andrea Deventer and Class of 2024 Grade Dean Katie Pepper.
MBS participates in three “Bridges runs” a year. Community service is a cornerstone of the Morristown Beard School educational experience, and helps MBS students build character and gain self-confidence on their journey to becoming productive and socially responsible citizens.
