In high school minutes moved slower than molasses; now I blink and a half a decade is over. I donate to Tampa Prep because I'd give anything to go back to those painfully slow adolescent-moments that truly mattered. I donate to Tampa Prep because this institution makes the most of every moment for each Terrapin. I donate so students can think beyond the correct answer; create masterpieces in clay, equations, melodies and test tubes; be themselves with confidence as they foster friendships; aspire to excellence through adversity and to go beyond the walls on West Cass Street with a sense of purpose. I donate to Tampa Prep because each of these five pillars provided the foundation for where I am today.

I first came to Prep as a student only a few years after we immigrated from Russia to the U.S., and we were still going through very rough times. My family was amazed that not only was I admitted but I received the financial assistance I needed. Tampa Prep gave me a good early push toward my career path as a college professor and researcher, for which I am grateful. While there are many great causes in the world, I've come to realize that education is the one closest to my heart. My donation to the Annual Fund will help today's Tampa Prep students achieve their goals.

Even though I am no longer in Tampa, I give to Prep because I feel that the school and the coaches and teachers associated with the school gave a tremendous amount to me during a very formative stage of my life. Part of my experience was made possible by the donations of others. As time has passed, I have continued to realize how much value I received from my Tampa Prep experience and I feel that contributing what I can to help provide a similar experience for others is the right thing to do.
