Jeremy Farber

Chairman of the Board of Trustees

Jeremy Farber is a 1995 graduate of Southern Preparatory Academy. In his senior year, Jeremy was the Battalion Commander of the Corps of Cadets. Jeremy thinks very highly of Southern Prep. His favorite experiences were the ski trips to North Carolina, Colorado, and Austria with Colonel Jenrette and other cadets. He believes that Southern Prep undoubtedly prepared him for his future plans by learning the importance of accountability. The lessons he learned were practiced on campus as well as the Citadel, where graduated from in 1999. Jeremy currently serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Southern Preparatory Academy. His experience at the academy paved a path so he can be successful, both personally and professionally. One of the primary reasons for his support of Southern Prep is the continuous teaching of important values, such as leadership and manners, that are not always found in our current society. After attending The Citadel, Jeremy became a successful entrepreneur, and currently serves as the CEO of Securis in Washington D.C. Jeremy enjoys serving his community by coaching high school basketball and spending time with his wife and three children.
