On Thursday, October 23, 2014, Princeton in Africa celebrated 15 years of Fellows at its 2014 Annual Gala. We presented the first-ever Princeton in Africa Founders’ Medal to the Co-Founders of Princeton in Africa (Jim Floyd, George Hritz and Frank Strasburger), and the Princeton in Africa Medal to the Tierney Family. Thank you to everyone who supported our event and thanks to all who joined us – you helped make the evening a great success!

You can see more photos of the event here.

In honor of the co-founders, Emmy Award-winning videographer James Blue (Princeton Class of ’91) produced a video in which the co-founders and Emily Holland (one of PiAf’s first two Fellows) discussed the history of PiAf as an organization. To watch the video, click here.
