Longines visits the Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus school in Las Vegas

Longines visits the Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus school in Las Vegas on the occasion of its 10-year partnership with Andre Agassi

To mark his 10-year anniversary as a Longines Ambassador of Elegance, Andre Agassi welcomed the Swiss watch brand as well as selected media guests to The Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus, which aims at educating responsible citizen-scholars for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship. Together with Adam Johnson, founding Executive Director of Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus, tennis legend Andre Agassi guided a group of journalists through the facilities and explained the programs ran in the school, which contribute to making the Democratic Prep at Agassi Campus one of the highest performing public school choices for families in Las Vegas.


Andre Agassi and Longines

Andre Agassi is one of the greatest tennis players ever. Nicknamed "The Kid of Las Vegas", he has won all four Grand Slam singles titles, without mentioning his victories in Davis Cup, Masters Series, and an Olympic gold medal, a unique feat. His duels with Pete Sampras, his dominant rival in tennis in the 1990s, were memorable moments in sport and have left a trace on tennis’ history. Agassi's game was famous for its precision and its exceptional timing. He also had remarkable endurance and was extremely combative. His unique style and kindness, as well as the emotion he transmitted while playing made him a great favorite with the public. In 2006, the Las Vegas player ended a career of 21 years. At that time, the 36-year-old American had already won 60 singles titles. Since his retirement, Agassi devotes his time to his family – he is married to Longines Ambassador of Elegance Stefanie Graf since 2001 and the couple has two children – and his charity work through the Foundation he created in 1994. Longines is extremely glad to count this tennis legend among its Ambassadors since 2007. The Swiss watch brand is also proud to support the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education and thus to take part in the charity activity of its Ambassador of Elegance, who perfectly embodies what elegance of the heart is all about.


The Democracy Prep Public School Network

Founded in 2005, Democracy Prep Public Schools is a network of open enrollment, high-performing public charter schools based in Harlem, New York. Their mission is to educate responsible citizen-scholars for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship. A simple philosophy guides Democracy Prep staff, students, and alumni alike: Work Hard. Go to College. Change the World! In 2017, DPPS received authorization to expand its highly successful model into Clark County. Rather than build a new program from scratch, Democracy Prep entered into a partnership with the Andre Agassi College Prep Academy and has transformed the existing school into Democracy Prep at the Agassi Campus (DPAC). Fusing a rigorous instructional program with a full complement of arts and athletic offerings, DPAC aims to be the highest performing public school choice for families in Las Vegas.

Longines’ passion for equestrian sport dates back to 1878, when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Three years later, it can be found on American racecourses, adopted by horse enthusia­sts. In 1912, the company partnered for the first time with an international show jumping competition. Today Longines’ involvement in equestrian sports includes show-jumping, flat racing, endurance, driving, dressage and eventing competitions.
