Posse’s Annual Gala

An Evening of Stars

Posse’s annual gala celebration held in New York City welcomes hundreds of guests and honors individual and corporate leaders in education. Posse invites you to join leaders of major companies from across the country, national journalists, celebrities, noteworthy philanthropists, Posse alumni and Posse Scholars at this elegant, hallmark event.

2017 Posse Star Honorees

A Posse Star is an individual who exhibits leadership, who makes a significant contribution in the field of education, and who positively affects people’s lives. Each year, The Posse Foundation identifies honorees who exemplify these attributes. They are leaders in their respective fields, presidents and chancellors of Posse partner colleges and universities, and Posse alumni. The Posse Foundation also awards a star to an outstanding company or foundation that has invested significant resources in helping Posse achieve its goals. We are proud to acknowledge these honorees as role models for us all.
