Meet Bagna Braestrup ‘00, SF Day’s Alumni Council President

 

 

After moving back to San Francisco from New York, Bagna joined the Alumni Council in 2017 and, as an Annual Fund co-chair for the past two years, has been instrumental in the significant growth in the number of donors and total dollars raised among our alumni community. In addition to his work as council president, Bagna serves on several Board Committees and is a member of SF Day’s current student transracial adoptee affinity group. He exemplifies how alumni can serve both as windows and mirrors to all of our students.

 

What was your first memory of SF Day?

It was the first day of school in the 5th grade. I had just moved to San Francisco from DC, so I was nervous coming in as a transfer student. I remember meeting everyone in the courtyard and was amazed as to how warm and welcoming everyone was to me, even though they all already knew each other. Cut to 20 years later and I am still very close with several classmates from “The greatest class that has ever existed”, I was even a best man at one classmate’s wedding.

 

Do you keep in touch with any teachers?

Ms. Temple. She was my fifth grade teacher, and I am still very close with her and her family. Ms. Temple even joined in on our Virtual Alumni Reunion Breakout Room for the class of 2000. It was fun to celebrate our 20th reunion.

 

Where do you currently live?

While my home base is still San Francisco, I have been living in Maine since shelter in place began. My dad lives out there for most of the year along with a lot of extended family. I have also seen Ms. Temple a few times, and several classmates have come to visit.

 

Why did you decide to join the alumni council?

SF Day will forever be what I gravitate back to. This school has meant everything to me and my dad. When I initially joined the Alumni Council a few years ago, it was a way for me to reconnect with fellow alumni and the school. What has kept me involved is having the opportunity to give back to the place that had and continues to give me so much. Since I came to SF Day as a transfer student from the east coast, SF Day was not only my educational launching point, it was my introduction and foundation to the city. When I was given the opportunity to become Alumni Council President, I jumped at the chance, and I am so grateful I did.
