Who was Malcolm Coates?
Those who know Prep@Pingree's history best understand what we always tell people who are learning about Prep@Pingree: "No Malcolm Coates, no Prep@Pingree." A retired head of several independent schools, Malcolm Coates boldly articulated a vision for Prep@Pingree - an academic enrichment and secondary school scholarship program that makes a permanent impact on young people and the excellence and relevance of Pingree school for nearly two decades.
Because of Malcolm's enduring, inspirational leadership as a Pingree School trustee, overseer and former parent, founding chair of the Prep@Pingree advisory committee, founding trustee Esperanza Academy, mentor and friend to many, Pingree School with the aid of a generous donor cemented his legacy by naming Prep@Pingree, The Malcolm Coates Prep@Pingree Program at Pingree School.
