The class of 2011 wishes to honor the memory of Lizzie Somers, a beloved classmate who passed away in August 2020. The Lizzie Somers Memorial Fund is dedicated to embodying Lizzie's incredible spirit, both on the tennis team and within the greater community. Combined gifts of $8,000 will be used to create the Lizzie Somers Memorial Grandstand at Priory's tennis courts, which were very close to her heart.
This Priory-style grandstand area will include bleachers, so fans have a comfortable place to cheer on the team, and a pavilion to cover the bleachers and protect the fans from the sun and heat. We will also arrange for landscaping, bringing in a backhoe to carve a bit out of the hill and create a retaining wall to provide a stable foundation for the bleachers and pavilion.
Through your gift, Lizzie's memory will live on through future generations of Priory students. Her presence on the tennis courts will truly be felt by players, families, faculty, and friends.
