Guest Post: Summer Fellow Luke Mallette

Good morning to all the families at Prep@Collegiate! My name is Luke Mallette, and for those of you who do not know or haven’t met me yet, I am one of the summer fellows this year at Prep@Collegiate. I am the leader of the Amherst Crew, and an assistant to Mr. Amin in the mathematics classroom. Some of your boys may already know me from the end of the year where I assisted with the 7th grade Northbay trip, and I have spent the previous month working alongside the operations team at Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys.

I was born and grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and attended Whitney M Young Magnet High School where I received an offer to play college lacrosse at the next level. I am now a rising junior at Amherst College, where I am majoring in Economics, and a two-year contributing member of the lacrosse team as a Long Stick Midfielder. This upcoming year, I will also be trying out for and playing football at Amherst at the Wide Receiver position, as I am now confident enough in my time management to attempt being a two-sport athlete at a highly competitive university. In my free time (wherever I can find some), I enjoy working out, drawing, chess, and photography.

I learned about the Prep@Collegiate program through Mr. Jack Pannell, the founder of Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys, and have had a great experience working with both the boys and the team so far. I’m excited to keep it up and see them again next week. Go Amherst Crew!
