Letter from Head of School Jennifer Price: The Class of 2021— Smart, Strong, and Resilient As we stand poised to start a new 2021-2022 school year, which is just four weeks away as I write this, I remain inspired by the amazing resilience with which our community battled through the formidable challenges of the past year and a half. The happiest day of the last 18 months at BB&N was June 11, 2021, when we were able to gather together (outdoors of course!) to celebrate the incredible Class of 2021 in person. I’m so proud of the members of this class, and of our entire community, and I’d like to share with you here not only my remarks from that occasion but also include some excerpted remarks from other speakers that day, which reflect BB&N’s core values of camaraderie, kindness, and principled engagement.

connection. What I’ve seen in you gives me hope that the new normal that replaces our pre-COVID world is more likely to have humanity, justice, and kindness in their proper place. CHRISTINE GROSS-LOH, P’19,’21,’25,’28 BB&N TRUSTEE --------------Dr. Price’s challenge to you today—”to engage with the world in a principled manner as you leave BB&N”—reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Winston Churchill: “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

--------------We’ve had our fair share of challenges, including tests, quizzes, projects, losing streaks, college applications, assigned bathrooms, and so much more. Through this all, though, we’ve always had each other and that’s what made this experience so formative. From the late-night FaceTime study sessions, to the 6:30AM practices, to even giving each other rides to Fourth Lot, we’ve always persevered and weathered our challenges together. We’ve been challenged by a one-of-a-kind senior year, which has left us isolated from each other. But through our at-home Zoom classrooms, modified team practices, and socially distant parking lot hangouts, we still managed to adapt and meet these unprecedented challenges. All along, we’ve been lucky to always have the support of our dear teachers, who are always there to help us out with whatever assignments or tasks we are given, including a graduation speech, and have slowly become friends and people whom we look up to and look to for advice. These challenges, alongside our teachers, have formed us into the people we are today, which we can always be grateful for. NIKHIL DATTA ’21 SENIOR CLASS SPEAKER --------------Every pandemic in history has been catastrophic, but has also led to revolutionary advances. After the Black Death, serfdom was abolished in Western Europe and conditions for the poor improved. After the flu pandemic of 1918, access to healthcare for the general public was greatly expanded around the world. We have already seen many technological and medical advances made as a result of COVID-19. But I have also seen the seeds of another kind of revolution, a revolution of kindness, especially among you. I’ve seen how your generation cares about each other, and about the rights of the disenfranchised, the lost, the voiceless. And I’ve marveled at how all of this was fostered at a time when we were so isolated—that in some ways it happened especially because of how the pandemic shone a light on the inequities in our society and on the importance of human 2

My hope for each of you is that you always give much more than you get. If you do so, I promise you will come to appreciate the great joy in life that comes from giving back. You’ve enjoyed a remarkable privilege to have studied at this extraordinary school. Now, as you begin your life after BB&N, you bear a special responsibility to use the gifts that you’ve been given to make the world a better place. Commit yourself to be an active and engaged citizen of the world. We know you will accomplish great things and we look forward to following your journey. CHUCK BRIZIUS, P’19,’21, CHAIR, BB&N BOARD OF TRUSTEES --------------Wow! We made it to the finish line of what has felt like the world’s longest marathon. Like so many of you here today, I am not sure whether I should cry, cheer, collapse, or keep moving. I guess I will keep moving. I want to begin with sincere gratitude. Thank you to the parents, guardians, grandparents, siblings—all of you in front of me. Fifteen months ago you made a decision to trust us. You sent your kids back to school in the middle of a global pandemic. You supported the students in front of me as they navigated a hybrid learning environment, adapted to a new schedule both in school and at home, raised funds to give our faculty and staff a New Year’s bonus, and supported our UKnighted Community Fund to make sure not a single family had to leave BB&N as a result of the economic impact of COVID. This past year has sadly divided many school communities. I am so proud that we emerged from this challenging year as a more UKnighted community, and that outcome is because of all of you. I cannot thank you enough. To our faculty and staff. Words simply cannot express what you have done this year to support and inspire our students. You have adapted your pedagogy to teach in person, online, with masks on, in gyms, and outside. You have become hall monitors, mask police, and for some of you, professional swabbers. You did whatever it took to provide a BB&N-caliber education for


our students this year, and for that this entire community is truly grateful. Finally, I want to thank the Class of 2021. You have led our student body with flexibility and care. Your actions in our classrooms, on our fields and courts, and on our outside stages have shown the rest of our students that we can get through this. We can make it together, and we can have some incredible experiences along the way. Thank you for all you have done this year to lead our school. Now, no graduation speech would be complete without an attempt to say something profound. I’m not sure I have anything left in my gas tank to have even a single profound thought, but, as a former History teacher, I have learned that when you are searching for meaning, look to the past, as there are always lessons there to help you navigate your present. Okay, Class of 2021, one final history lesson…. So, you all are known as Gen Z. It is interesting to think about different generations and how they are often defined. It is also interesting to think about the fact that many of our generations are cyclical…frequently taking on many of the same characteristics of a previous generation. Let me get specific. Tom Brokaw popularized the concept of the “Greatest Generation” in his 1998 book with that title. This generation was born between 1901 and 1927. Its members grew up during the first World War, the Influenza epidemic, and the prosperity and glamour of the Roaring ’20s. They came of age during the Great Depression and the stark realities and austerity of World War II. To say their formative years were challenging is an understatement.

Why is the story of the Greatest Generation relevant to you? As I said, often these generations are cyclical. I do not hope for you a World War or a Great Depression, but your generation has not had it easy…especially during these last 15 months. You have learned to deal with restrictions, political upheaval, a resurgence of racially, ethnically, and religiously motivated violence, increases in mental health needs, and a global health crisis. You have seen how coming together, as we have done this past year here at BB&N, is a key to emerging from these challenges stronger, more resilient, and committed to one another. It has been a hard time, as were the formative years for the Greatest Generation. Yet, that generation got its name not from the conflicts it lived through, but rather for what its members did after the challenges were met. For how they helped put our nation back together. So, what are you all going to do? My hope is that you engage in a principled manner as you leave BB&N and that your generation will be seen as the modern-day “greatest generation”—not because of what you lived through, but because of what you did as a result. I wish you the best of luck, Class of 2021. Go Knights!

JENNIFER PRICE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Yet, this generation helped shape our society as we know it today. As Brokaw writes, “They married in record numbers and gave birth to another distinctive generation, the Baby Boomers. They stayed true to their values of personal responsibility, duty, honor, and faith.” They brought our nation out of World War II and led our country on a strong path of economic recovery. Many feel, as Historian Glen Elder states, that this generation emerged from their challenging formative years “with an ability to know how to survive and make do and solve problems.” They put their differences aside, and came together to confront common challenges. Now, I want to acknowledge that this generation was not perfect, as many faults that continue to divide our society today—including racism, sexism, homophobia, and antisemitism— persisted. Nevertheless, even while acknowledging these flaws, this generation managed to define its legacy through a shared sense of responsibility to rebuild and improve the broken world they had inherited. 3

Sixth Grade Closing Gathering on the turf field at Buckingham Street, BB&N’s Class of 2027 marked the culmination of their Lower School journey with a celebratory closing ceremony this spring. Lower School director Anthony Reppucci opened the proceedings with an address to the students. “Today’s ceremony marks your ending here at the Lower School, and it marks the beginning of your time at the Middle School. But the in between is a gap that gives you space to prepare, and recharge,” Reppucci said. “Don’t ignore the time you have and don’t try to speed it up. You’ve succeeded and overcome a lot this year—don’t forget you’ll always have a home here at the Lower School.”

Head of School Dr. Jennifer Price also spoke, thanking parents and particularly teachers about whom she noted, “I would put the Lower Sschool faculty at BB&N against anyone in this country for the job they did this year.” Price then turned her attention the students: “You guys were amazing,” she beamed. “We asked you to do the impossible, and each and every one of you made the decision to do it in a way that was collaborative and resilient. You are incredible, and we are so proud of you.” Three members of the Class of 2027 then took the podium to speak about their sixth-grade experiences. Scarlett Hawkins ’27 talked about beginning a new school in the midst of a pandemic. “I was so scared to start the year,” Hawkins said. “...but BB&N surprised me…now I can walk in to class confidently knowing that the BB&N community is with me.” As the last of four brothers at BB&N, Tanner Oberg ’27 noted that he had been coming to BB&N almost daily since he was 8-weeks old. “Despite all of the changes over the last 12 years, BB&N has been the one constant for me,” he said, noting the importance of the school to him. Oberg then listed some lessons he would take with him, including such gems as, “you can make every day a little better by saying ‘hi’ and giving a simple high five to everyone you see.” (A friendly nod to Lower School maintenance stalwart Tony Arruda.) Albert Wen ’27 used his time to express his thanks to the school for making a challenging year so rewarding. “I’m very grateful to our teachers who made this year a great experience,” Wen said. “I want to express my gratitude to the entire BB&N community, including the unsung heroes like the bus drivers, custodians, and cleaning crews.” The ceremony closed with a song, “You Will be Found.” It was an apt moment as the students’ voices rang out over the campus they had called home for so long, the notes floating into the air and off to new horizons.

Led by the traditional, melodious bagpiping of MS Assistant Director Tony Breen, the eighth graders were all smiles to mark the occasion.

“What do you say when you reach the finish line of a race you never signed up for? A race where the rules kept changing. Through guiding principles, patience, flexibility, and compassion, we made it—what a major accomplishment. We are so happy to be here to acknowledge and celebrate the growth of this class.” Head of School Dr. Jennifer Price opened her address with a heartfelt thank you to faculty and parents for trusting BB&N in a difficult year, before turning her attention to the students. “This class has always had a reputation in this institution for being kind, caring, and compassionate,” said Price. “That was never clearer than this year. You led this campus, and you showed this community that you were going to get through it. If it wasn’t for you, this wouldn’t have worked. Thank you.” Taking the podium to address his classmates, Niyam Badani ’25 offered a humorous take on the year that was, even coining a new term: “school-sick.” “Our class encountered a new phenomenon, being ‘school sick’,” Badani noted. “It’s like being homesick, but just for being in school—symptoms include missing pizza at lunch, missing your classmates, and some side effects include doing your homework four days before it’s due and begging your parents to get you to school early.” In her speech to the class, Lea Von Hilgers ’25 spoke of her classmates’ accomplishments in the face of a pandemic. Noting the “walls” they broke down in navigating a new normal, Von Hilgers pointed out the lessons that can be drawn from 2020-21.

“We are more empathetic than ever before—we appreciate the simple things in life. In the few and small, the large and meaningful can be discovered,” she said. “Looking outward and ahead, if we can work together as a scientific community to combat COVID, as a world community who’s to say that we can’t break down broken systems to reflect today’s standards?” As the students stood to receive their congratulations, each found a “goodie bag” containing celebratory pom-poms, essential gear for next year’s Bivouac, and candy (of course!). Amid the cheers and smiles, the sun-baked morning illuminated a class that had indeed achieved so much.

Spring Arts Utilizing all of their creativity, BB&N arts teachers brought campuses to life this spring through a variety of performances and artistic mediums. Theater and music classes often found themselves outside, using the natural surroundings to transform shows in interesting ways. And hallways and exhibit spaces across all three campuses flourished with the usual student-created art work.

Paul Ruh lm ann

Upper School Woodworking

He’s had his own building since his arrival at BB&N in 1978. His first assigned task brought him a few hundred extra dollars to insulate it, put up interior walls, and apply some paint to the cladding (his original coat is still the coat you see). Yes, the Sloyd Building has moved, yielding first to the Smith Science Wing and then to the Etter Gym, before settling into its present location at the heart of the Upper School campus. But any former student who designed and built something in that building would find the interior space reassuringly familiar. The dust collection mechanics have been upgraded and the windows are now double glazed, but there is, still, the smell of sawdust and friction-burnt wood, safety lessons and protocols firmly, clearly, in place, and tools always beautifully maintained. On crisp winter days the slant of the sun still bathes the interior in the familiar, comforting, burnished glow that helps create the magic of one of BB&N’s most cherished spaces, Paul Ruhlmann’s Wood Studio. 12

In that space for 43 years, Paul has been an encouraging, nurturing presence and has overseen a studio governed by a measured pace vitally important as a counter to the demands of the evolving educational zeitgeist that so often abrades the BB&N community. So much of one’s life at BB&N can be hurried, pressured, or stressful. We get a lot done and we do it at a demandingly high level. In Paul’s Wood Studio, too, work is expected to meet a very high standard. But in that space and under his guidance, Paul has always made room in that making of art to breathe, to reflect, to pause and to think and think again, to see again before sketching the plan, before making the cut, before applying the stain. As the school has taken deserved pride in its standing as a place striving for excellence, it has recognized the need for such a space and, especially, for such a teacher. Alumni/ae comments spanning Paul’s career strike that same tone over the years:

- “What he does is help people find that courage in themselves to make it their own way,” says Zark Strasburger ’89. - “He taught me how to be creative”, notes Aremin Hacobian ’91. - “He held us to a really high standard so that we made pieces that we didn’t think we could,” praises Lukas Kauth ’17. And these comments are echoed by one of the last of Paul’s BB&N students, rising senior Sofia Chen ’22. “Woodworking is truly the highlight of my days at BB&N,” Chen says. “It’s the class that I can walk into and know will put me in a better mood or inspire me in some way. Mr. Ruhlmann has helped me, and many others see woodworking as true art and a way of expressing yourself rather than just building furniture. He is one of the kindest, if not the kindest, teachers at BB&N, and every time I step into the woodshed it’s like stepping into a completely different

“On crisp winter days the slant of the sun still bathes the interior in the familiar, comforting, burnished glow that helps create the magic of one of BB&N’s most cherished spaces, Paul Ruhlmann’s Wood Studio.” world. No matter what has happened that day, he makes the class a way for me to truly be grateful for the moment and having the opportunity to create these amazing pieces of art.” Paul had been, of course, a presence outside his studio as well. For a guy committed to one of humankind’s oldest crafts—the utile and aesthetic shaping of wood goes back a few millennia—Paul has always had his eye on the next thing out there. 40 years ago, when BB&N first hosted the Ralph Bradley Arts Festival, Paul proffered to the Arts Department an impassioned extolling of the virtues of Tyvek when that then little-known material was still searching for usefulness beyond the Apollo Space Program. We were planning a fifteen-school arts festival that included a parade to Harvard Square down the center of Memorial Drive. “Balloons” cried Paul, “Tyvek balloons. We’ll fill them with helium, they’ll be six feet high, the hit of the parade. I’ll run a stilt making workshop and scores of students can march atop stilts with these giant balloons sailing above them.” And he did, and they did, and it was magnificent. If you root around an attic trunk for your Bivouac knife, you’ll recognize it by your name Paul helped wood burn into the handle. And some of you might still be using the rustic chair built in a Ruhlmann Bivouac furniture workshop. He designed and patented a tool, now standard equipment in wood studios worldwide, that would cut the necessary tenons to build the furniture more easily. Head of the Bivouac program David Strodel ’78 referred to it, not inaccurately, as “a pencil sharpener on steroids” before adding, “what always stands out to me about Paul is the quiet and willing spirit that he has

to share any idea, advice, or knowledge he has with students and faculty alike. His heart for passing on the best of what he knows and loves has impacted so many.” Paul coached sailing and cross-country skiing, brought his friends the Magliozzis, Lucille to teach dulcimer and brothers Tom and Ray (aka Click and Clack, NPR’s Car Talk guys) to teach auto mechanics, and, inspired by his devotion to his life in Concord with his wife, Terry, and sons Brian and Nicholas, he’s been a campus

leader well ahead of the curve in bringing environmental issues to the fore. The length of his tenure forges a link to BB&N names of a half century ago. Doc Walters, Barbara Zecher, John Petropoulos, Byron Bowman, and Bev Balise became his peers not too long after he left his young adulthood in Lockport, New York—30 miles north (!) of Buffalo—and settled in the Studio to offer his gifts, artistic and personal, to so many young adults in Cambridge. Alumnus, former trustee, and BB&N parent John Fulginiti ’81 P’24 sums it up well. “Paul is the complete package of excellence in teaching at BB&N, in terms of his dedication, his tirelessness, his concern and interest in every student he has, and how he used his class to teach many broader important skills that each of us could take through life.”

S oiz ic k Munir

Lower School French Teacher

“Bonjour, Mademoiselle!” “Bonjour, Madame!” “Ça va?” “Ça va bien! Et vous?” “Moi aussi! Au revoir!” “À bientôt!” This cheery greeting to start one’s day will be missed in the halls of the Lower School next year as Madame Munir begins her well-earned retirement. It was a long, circuitous route that brought her to BB&N. Bev Malone, Lower School head at the time, hired her in 1988 after seeing on Soizick’s resume that she had made desserts with Julia Child! Soizick was raised in Brittany in the West of France. She pursued her love of teaching with a degree from the University in Grenoble. From there, she was one of three chosen to continue her studies in London, her first choice. It was in the UK that she met a tall, handsome Turkish Cypriot named Dr. Kerim Munir. After they were married, they moved

14

together to New York where Kerim pursued further studies in medicine and Soizick continued her teaching career. When Harvard brought Kerim to Boston, Soizick came with him, and it was there that they raised two sons. At the École Bilingue, she got the chance to teach a Kindergarten class and then a third-grade homeroom. This was where she was working when she connected with Bev Malone. Many aspects of who Soizick is as a person contribute to making her such an excellent teacher. She loves the kids, first of all, and responds to each as an individual. She is very creative, both in her day-today lesson plans and in considering new methods of teaching a language. How fun to learn a language by reading Tin Tin, singing, cooking a goûter, or even going into Harvard Square to Au Bon Pain for croissants!

Soizick’s efforts to teach her students about French culture as well as French language extended well beyond the classroom. She used her many talents to the school’s, and especially her students’, benefits. A few examples include the fact that she loves to sing, so that besides teaching her class French songs during class time, she regularly taught groups to sing in the school’s seasonal concerts; she had her cooking club challenge the Spanish group to a contest; and, maybe most significantly, her love of travel inspired her to organize trips that were much enjoyed! The first few were to Montreal with sixth graders and faculty chaperones. She eventually graduated to taking groups of students with parent chaperones on unique trips to France—exploring cathedrals to catacombs, patisseries to oyster flats—and creating French memories galore! John Reichenbach and his daughter Mimi ’12 went on one trip. He especially remembers the time they came upon a group including Dominique de VillePin, then Prime Minister of France. “Soizick was able to turn lemons into lemonade. We arrived at Mont-Saint-Michel a few minutes before de Villepin, with the expectation that we’d be able to tour the abbey and monastery at the top of Mont-Saint-Michel. He was coming to announce the redesign of all of the parking lots to remove them from the Mont-SaintMichel vista—that project has since been completed. But, as a result, the abbey and monastery were closed to public access for his party. As his party moved by us on the other side of temporary rope lines, Soizick intercepted them with the true line that we were a group of young Americans on a tour of France with their French teacher, and wouldn’t it be nice if he could say a few words. He paused, spoke for several minutes, and then stayed a bit longer so that we could capture those photos. While this was going on, Soizick wrangled an invitation from the detail head of the SDLP (Secret Service) for us to come visit Le Matignon, the Prime Minister’s residence. Because it was at 7am on our last day in

France, only Soizick, Mimi, and I went. It was like a private White House tour, including the back of the house.” Academically, Soizick was always exploring the best ways to best reach her students. She attended many conferences, often with others in the Lower School language department. Occasionally, she delivered papers there, especially on how to use nursery rhymes and singing games in teaching the language. Her lesson plans were widely varied, as she has taught everything from kindergarten to older students whom she has tutored in her home town of Cohasset. She has especially enjoyed her interactions with the Lower School Spanish teacher, Omar Machado, and it is clearly reciprocal! Omar reflects, “If you’re looking for a compassionate teacher, Madame is it. If you’re looking for a wise listener, Soizick is always next to you with open arms and a word of wisdom. But if you’re looking for all of that and a co-worker/friendship that exemplifies kindness, professionalism, and even someone to have a good laugh with, then let me tell you that Madame Soizick Munir is all that and then some. I will miss you today and always dear professional friend. Have a blessed life in your new adventure!” Her compassion and awareness of others are essential parts of who she is. Beginning with her family—husband Kerim, son Erol, and his wife Kathryn and grandsons Olivier and Louis, and son Eren and his wife Janice and grandson Raphael—Soizick takes care of us all. She was an active member of the Faculty Concerns Committee and a co-founder of the Lower School Sunshine Committee. Bev Malone reflects that “Soizick has been the Sunshine of the Lower School. Her wonderful smile and French fashionista sense have always brightened up the dull institutional classroom. She has also been the chairwoman of the Lower School Sunshine Committee for years—

But the treat I will always remember is her being the cook at Project REASON (the 5th grade camping trip the school ran for decades). She made crêpes for all 40 students plus 20 faculty. It was a marvel to behold!” BB&N deserves thanks for bringing Soizick into our lives. Her impact on the school was clearly widespread and will

be long remembered. I am especially grateful to have found her friendship waiting for me when I joined the Lower School faculty a year after she arrived. I look forward to continuing to enjoy her company as we knit and talk, share family events, and especially as she continues as my co-conspirator and travel planner, using her newly available free time! I can’t wait!

It’s a sad moment for BB&N soup aficionados; after 19 years as BB&N’s Lunch Production Chef (specializing in soups and sauces), Jose Marin is taking his ladle and going home. Although Jose was officially a school employee for 19 years, his actual tenure at the school dates back much further (beyond 30 years!), as he originally came to BB&N in the late ’80s as an employee of Sage Dining Services, the company that ran the kitchen at the time.

Much to the delight of students and faculty, Jose stayed on with the school when the shift to an in-house dining department was made. Modest and kind, Jose has relished his time at BB&N, and notes that he is grateful to have been a part of such a wonderful community. He also speaks fondly of his colleagues

Jose’s tortilla soup will long be remembered as the crown jewel of the lunch buffet, a sentiment that Chef Jones heartily endorses, (as would any sane eater with working taste buds). “A well-deserved rest for a great chef and colleague,” Jones says. Amen to that.

D E PA RT I N G FAC U LT Y After 16 years as an Upper School history teacher at BB&N, Tom Siegel’s retirement will certainly leave a hole in the Upper School community. Students in Tom’s class learned to “make green” or use past information to understand a new topic or idea. They learned to be wary of teleological arguments which resort to notions such as ends, goals, purposes, or objectives to explain phenomena. Matt Turnbull, one of Tom’s history colleagues, recalled a conversation he overheard one day between Tom and one of his students: This student asked, “How long should my essay be?”

Tom Sie ge l

Upper School History By Susan Glazer

Tom responded, “How long do your legs need to be?” The student said, “Ummmm…” Tom quickly answered his question, “Long enough to touch the ground.”

This was not the first time that Tom had given this answer, yet each time, I think the students who received this advice would probably leave his presence somewhat confused at first, but most students figured it out. Just like legs can get you where you need to go no matter the length, an essay that is well thought out and well supported can get the job done without needing a specific length or number of paragraphs. It’s good advice! I worked with Tom for eight years, and it’s hard to imagine what the department will be like next year without him. It will be strange to walk into office 172 and not see him sitting there in the corner next to the “comfy chair.” Who will fill his shoes with his encyclopedic knowledge of U.S. history? Who will we send kids to who need help finding a provocative topic in U.S. History to explore for their

research paper? Who will be our department historian, conversant and knowledgeable in department history as well as global and U.S. History? Tom has a special place in my heart. He’s been not only a friend and colleague but also a mentor and a close advisor. We’ve had conversations that start out something like “this will only take a few minutes” and next thing we know, it’s been an hour or more of deep discussion and also of laughs. He’s welcomed my kids on the days they have spent at school, showing off Sesame Street character accents. He has a running joke with my daughter about grapes that miraculously regrow out of the ceiling in the office despite constantly being eaten. Farah DiPasquale, another history colleague, recently rattled off a ton of accolades regarding Tom, and these sentiments are shared by the rest of his colleagues: “Tom impressed me so much with his passion for the subjects he teaches, dedication to teaching and the work of his students, his scholarly depth, unending work on his courses, how deliberate he is with each aspect of his classes, his mastery of the craft of teaching, his sharing of pedagogical materials as well as interesting articles, his collegiality, and also a whole paragraph could be written about how he engaged so well with the seniors in the seminar and helped elevate their inquiries.” I think she’s covered a lot, and it’s all true. Tom is fearless in his willingness to share so much of himself and to take risks to forge a true partnership. He shares his knowledge freely, listens carefully and offers thoughtful advice, and he has helped countless students (and colleagues) dig deep into history and to think about the past in new ways. Thanks for helping all of us “make green” all of these years. 17

CLASS OF 2021 GRADUATION Every BB&N graduation is a celebratory event, but none was possibly more jubilant than the one held for the Class of 2021 on June 11 on Nichols Field at the Upper School campus. Only months before it was unclear whether an in-person graduation was even feasible, but with many COVID restrictions for Massachusetts lifted, the graduation ceremony took place “in real life,” as students often like to say. The temperate, sunny day could not have been more perfect, or appreciated, by those in attendance. President of the graduating class, Eric Palace ’21, began the ceremony with a poem, as is the tradition. Senior Class Speaker and BB&N Lifer Nikhil Datta ’21 walked up to the podium next to address the 133 members of the Class of 2021, their families, and faculty and staff. Datta reminisced about BB&N traditions such as hiking Mount Monadnock during Bivouac and the sophomore history paper. His address focused on the strong friendships among the Class of 2021. “Just because we are leaving our schools’ campus for the first time as alums today, does not mean we will lose our deep-seated bonds,” Datta said. “To me, BB&N has not just been an educational institution, but a place where I have been given the opportunity to meet the most kind, thoughtful, and impressive people.” Another graduation tradition is to have a parent or guardian of a senior speak. Daniel Gross-Loh ’21 introduced his mother, writer Christine Gross-Loh, noting how he admires that she has always balanced her successful career with being a wonderful mother. It would be impossible to give a key-note address without considering the impact of COVID on the graduating class. Gross-Loh looked to pandemics throughout history and revolutionary advances which often resulted. She explained that the revolution she sees now is “a revolution of kindness.” She continued, “I’ve seen how your generation cares about each other and the rights of the disenfranchised, the lost, and the voiceless. What I’ve seen in you gives me hope that the new normal that replaces our preCOVID world has every chance of seeing humanity, justice, and kindness take their proper place.” After a musical interlude by the Senior Spring Quartet, Head of School Dr. Jennifer Price thanked parents, grandparents, siblings, and guardians for supporting their children through a challenging time, and faculty/staff for “doing whatever it took to provide a BB&N caliber education for our students this year.” Price also looked to history and compared Generation Z to the Greatest Generation, citing the cyclical nature of generations. Like Gross-Loh, she commented on what the Greatest Generation achieved after living through challenges such as World War II, and shared her aspirations for the Class of 2021 as part of Gen Z. “My hope is that you engage in a principled manner as you leave BB&N and that your generation will be seen as the modern-day Greatest Generation, not because of what we lived through, but because of what you did as a result.”

PRIZES AWARDED Citizenship THE BARRETT HOYT AWARD was established in 1972 in memory of a student and is awarded to a senior who acts responsibly and represents his or her classmates and school with honor. Kind, considerate, humble, and mature, this student holds herself to a high standard as a learner, a classmate, and a friend. Whether it’s in a cappella or in Chinese class, during semester away or on the cross-country team, she can be found putting in her best effort, supporting her peers, and overcoming obstacles with integrity, hard work, and determination. Priya Devavaram ’21 This student is an artist, an environmentalist, and is passionate about social justice. She is a caring individual who acts not only in the BB&N community but also in her wider community, promoting an awareness and respect for the natural resources available and the inequalities that exist surrounding access to these resources. She demonstrates a determined approach to overcoming challenges in situations that are close to her heart, she cares deeply about and advocates for human rights and is a kind, sensitive, and supportive friend. Clio Quilter-Vagts ’21 THE ANNETTE JOHNSON PRIZE honors the memory of a student whose life exemplified courage and commitment to scholarship. The prize recognizes optimism, perseverance and dedication to the community and its ideals. A scholar whose range of interests begins with her highestlevel academic courses and goes on to broaden the word “scholarship” to include her numerous achievements in Orchestra and Chamber Music, her co-presidency of Model UN, and her role as an editor for the Vanguard, this dedicated student has added much to the BB&N experience of her peers and the community at large. In Orchestra and Chamber Music, this student’s exquisite musicianship paired with a tenacious will to collaborate on every possible project and to share in the joys of ensemble playing with her peers. She is “viola power” personified. Abigail Rabieh ’21 Cheerful and outgoing, this student strives to make everyone feel welcomed. His perpetual smile, joyful nature, and concern for others make him the ideal Peer Counselor and Vanguard Opinions editor. In good times and in bad, he somehow manages to make those around him have a brighter day. Daniel Gross-Loh ’21 THE MERIWETHER OTIS KIMBALL PRIZE established in memory of Meriwether Otis Kimball ’32 by his parents and is awarded annually for faithful, conscientious work and

26

cheerfulness in meeting and overcoming difficulties. With her big heart and big smile always present, this young woman contributes in various ways that improve our community. In the classroom, she builds strong relationships with her peers and teachers by asking questions, engaging the discussion, and challenging both her own and her peers’ opinions. Whether playing on a team or in attending SHADES, Empower, GAINS or other interests, she demonstrates that through kindness, dedication, and activism, one can change her community for the better Ruthie Osagie ’21 Enthusiastic, kind, and thoughtful, this student always takes the time to celebrate her classmates and create team spirit. Whether helping lead varsity soccer to a New England championship or cheering on classmates with their projects and presentations, she always brings out the best in herself and in those around her and brightens each community of which she is a part. Charlotte Huang ’21 THE LUBETS PRIZE was established by Richard I. Lubets, Browne & Nichols class of ’51, in memory of his parents, to honor a student who has made an outstanding contribution during her or his senior year. This student has been described as respectful, careful, thoughtful, calm, steady, trustworthy, and caring deeply about the quality of his work. Whether serving as a Bivouac junior guide, creating music with his peers, or jumpstarting BB&N sports blog website The Benchwarmer, he has demonstrated a consistent commitment to bettering the BB&N community, and an ability to lead through action more than words. Future BB&N seniors will continue to learn and benefit from the exemplary model set by this young man. Jayden Personnat ’21 Quite simply put, this student is a force of nature. Witty, dedicated, thoughtful, ambitious, and curious, she is a gift to any classroom and to our school. She arrived just last fall, one of the only transfer juniors in the class. It is unusual for students to make such a seamless transition to BB&N, but she did just that, leaping into the classes, athletics, and clubs in a way that made everyone forget she had just arrived. She is a leader in the class, confident yet inclusive, willing to push others yet patient with those who have not yet caught up to where she is. These two years have gone quickly, but it is hard to imagine this class without her in it. Samirah Moody ’21 THE DAVID R. POKROSS PRIZE was established by the Pokross children and grandchildren to honor their father and grandfather, a former trustee at Buckingham Browne & Nichols. It is awarded to the student whose commitment to people in


GRADUATION 2021 need best embodies the ideals expressed in the Community Service Program of the Upper School.

This student has worked with Housing Families, Inc., a nonprofit program that works to end homelessness for families throughout his high school career. He has spent countless hours tutoring, providing support to students after school, and working as a summer camp counselor. He has raised over $20,000 by hiking 70 miles of the Appalachian trail, writing grants, and selling Origami through a website he and his sister operate. As a member of CELB this year, he has been instrumental in getting the website organized and usable. Extremely kind, thoughtful, humble and selfless, he took it upon himself to use his talents with website design and computers to help make our service learning hub better. His leadership and work will leave a lasting legacy at BB&N as the service learning program continues to evolve. Alex Wu ’21 This dedicated and compassionate leader has given generously of her time and energy to educate, support and serve the community. Her joyful personality is evident whether it be in service to her class as an elected officer, her volunteer work, or tutoring during the pandemic. Aanika Patel ’21

PRIZES AWARDED THE APRIL TERUEL PRIZE, given in memory of a former student, is awarded this year to a senior who is kind and understanding to his peers and has been an active participant in the life of the school. Always happy, optimistic and energetic whether he was participating in class or SHADES, helping a fellow student as a Peer Counsellor or playing in the Varsity soccer team. He was hardworking and committed to make BB&N a better place while embodying carefreeness and kindness with his signature smile. Nikhil Datta ’21 This young woman’s kindness and care for her classmates helps to nurture the social dynamic of the class of 2021. As a captain for various sports, a member of myriad clubs/activities, an officer for her class, a member in Chorale, a Junior Guide for Bivouac, she demonstrated that inclusion means that everyone belongs. We’ll miss seeing her on the sidelines at friends’ games, listening to her sing at events, and watching her work her magic in any given social situation. Patricia Halliday ’21 THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN PRIZE was established by George Deptula, a former member of the faculty, to recognize strength of character, sensitivity to the needs of others, and willingness to use his or her education, talent, and time to assist those in need.

generously to friends and the school community, and whose lives exemplify the School’s motto: Honor, Scholarship, Kindness. The Class of 2021 would not have been the same without this young man. From the very first day when he decided to take “groupies” of his peers with an imaginary camera at Bivouac, it was obvious this young man cares about creating an inclusive, kind, and fun experience for everyone, which lasted for his four years at the Upper School. In the classroom, his genuine curiosity drives his academic pursuits and interests, and his humble nature encourages others to learn without a fear of failure. And, by working equally hard at improving himself as an athlete and leader on the field, he demonstrates how one balances personal achievement with team success. We’ll miss hearing his infectious giggle, his booming, “Hello!”, and seeing his welcoming smile each day. Jaden Young ’21 Genuinely engaged with the community, keenly aware of others, and dedicated to serving the greater good, this student—as a valued classmate, Student Council co-president, junior class president, and organizer of racial and social justice work—has led by unassuming, stellar example. Resilient, principled, and friendly, she garners gratitude from students and faculty alike for her crucial voice, and her consequential involvement in the daily life of the school.

Guided by his own inner compass, this student moves toward personal excellence and social justice with the same commitment, focus, work ethic, and passion. His even-keeled leadership reflects genuine caring whether tutoring 3rd graders in English at the Benjamin Banneker school, or articulating the purpose of BSAE (Brothers Seeking Academic Excellence) or cheering teammates on when things don’t go well on the pitch— be it for BB&N or Chelsea FC. With deep curiosity, with high expectations of himself and others, with supportive engagement, and with courage to stand up for an ethical perspective, this student explores possibilities for making the world better.

Dedicated, sincere, kind, and empathetic are just a few words that describe this outstanding human being. On a given day, this student can be seen studying diligently, grabbing her violin for an orchestra rehearsal, heading with music in hand to a Chorale or Voices of the Knight rehearsal, lugging hockey gear for a practice or game, or reading over submissions for the Spectator. No matter what she is doing, this student is always thinking about the needs of her friends and of the BB&N community. Sophie Marie-Chadha ’21

INNOVATIVE KNIGHT CORPS PROGRAM Proves Essential During Pandemic Year by Sharon Krauss, US English teacher

Knight Corps member Sebastien Ridore ’15 30


On a cool, drizzly Monday, Lower School French teacher Soizick Munir begins by asking her in-person sixth-graders about the weekend’s unseasonably warm, early-spring weather. From her Zoom box projected on the screen, she asks, “Quelle était la température samedi?” After Madame chirpily repeats the question with more detail a few times, the stumped students look to Sébastien Ridoré ’15, sitting before them in the classroom. He stage-whispers, “Seventy-five degrees.” When that fails to prompt a response, he suggests, “Say any number in the seventies.”

aspirations to pursue paths in education might be interested in this opportunity.”

“Dix? Soixante-dix?” Antonio offers.

Indeed, Ridoré was in just that disrupted situation when he learned about the Knight Corps. One of three alums hired, he is in the middle of the group’s 19–27 age range and, like most of the Knights, has worked with youth in other capacities. A “lifer” at BB&N, where he played in the orchestra, he majored in Viola Performance at Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College, after which he freelanced in the music world—on the string faculty at the Community Center of Boston, as a teaching artist at the Boston Music Project, and running the music program at the Immigrant Family Services Institute. But when everything went virtual, he lost a lot of working hours.

“Yes!” says Ridoré.

“Oui!” says Munir, raising a celebratory fist in her Zoom box.

“The Knight Corps job was in education, related to what I was doing at the time, and it was also a reason to come back to the community. I thought—man, I got so much out of BB&N, so much was given to me,” Ridoré says. “I sort of felt like this was the universe offering me a chance to give back.”

Madame adds, “It is a difficult number en français.” Antonio starts to reply, but Ridoré interrupts, a masked smile heard in his voice. “Your mic is muted, buddy.” It is Monday, after all. Trying again, Antonio asks, “Is it ‘sept cent’ or something like that?” Ridoré replies, “Start with ‘soixante’ and then add ‘ten.’ Soixante…?” A murmured recognition of the concept hums among the students.

On any given day, Ridoré “explains things if what I said didn’t go through,” says Munir, teaching remotely in her thirty-third year at BB&N. “He can repeat it because his French is so good; he can make it simpler. Sébastien also is my tech guy, my hands and feet. He makes photocopies and hands them out. He takes the students for their mask break. He’s the presence in the room—an amazing presence, so warm and so kind. The kids love him. They count on him.” Ridoré is one of 31 educational support associates hired in August 2020 to form the Knight Corps, as it is colloquially known, to serve all three divisions. The brainchild of Head of School Jennifer Price as she was facing the myriad challenges of planning for the ’20–’21 school year, “the idea is to have hands on deck to deal with the numerous new realities of running school during a pandemic,” explains Chief Learning Officer Jed Lippard, who, along with Co-Director of Extended Year Services Emma O’Loughlin, took on the task of quickly developing the idea, hiring the Knights, and overseeing the plan’s implementation. “The way I always describe it to people,” says Knight Corps member Helen Murray, “is that I’m kind of a pandemic TA. I was really impressed with the ingenuity of a role like this. I wanted to be in a space that was problem-solving in that way.” Middle School Assistant Director Tony Breen, who serves as the Knight Corps coordinator on his campus, says, “The bottom line is the Knights basically have enabled us to function in full format this year. Thanks to their presence, we were able to avoid multiple episodes where we would have otherwise been up the creek without a paddle.” “Dr. Price used the analogy of a baseball team’s utility player,” Lippard continues. “Her thought was that young people whose years are also disrupted by the pandemic and/or who have

Ridoré also works with Lower School Spanish teachers Monica Palacio and Omar Machado to teach first- and fourth-grade classes, respectively. “That’s given me the skills to think on my feet because I’ve never taken Spanish before! I’ve done Duolingo every day to learn the basics and stay a few steps ahead of the students. You have to keep up the illusion with the students that you know all,” he says with a laugh. Appreciative of learning a new language in the process, Ridoré is also glad to have brushed up on his French, which he studied throughout BB&N and was primed for by the Haitian Creole he’d grown up speaking at home, and to have reconnected with his former teacher. “I still kind of see Soizick as a mentor. But we’re in a different place now; it’s awesome to have that relationship with her.” Ridoré has also established great rapport with the sixthgraders, especially. Alec Liu ’27, one of Munir’s students, says, “Sébastien is super helpful, funny, and chill. He’s really good!” After facilitating classroom activities, helping students find online resources for research projects, chatting and playing games during mask breaks, Ridoré notes, “Those connections have been growing and growing. And now a lot of the students will come up to me just to hang out and talk—like during dismissal time when we’re waiting for the parents.” Lower School Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Global (DEIG) Education Practitioner Emma Price, who also serves as the LS Knight Corps Coordinator, points out that the Knights have notably reduced the student-adult ratio. Especially since students could not be with their teachers last spring, she says, “the Knights have provided important opportunities 31


for students to have more contact with adults. They’ve developed really sweet relationships with our kids.” On the Middle School campus, Charlie Salkever, an “absolute stellar, rock-solid, go-to Knight,” according to Breen, has done everything from substitute-teach art class to proctor quizzes to help in math classes, but his primary position has been in the science lab—particularly, connecting with the students learning remotely. “I make sure they feel engaged in the labs and class activities and understand the content,” Salkever says. “It’s felt very meaningful to be a resource for students who may be struggling with remote learning, as well as give them some much-needed social interaction.” Overall, Salkever has found getting to know the students the most rewarding part of his job. “Every day I’m impressed,” he says. “They’ve taught me so much.” Student interaction with the Knights was integral to the Knight School program, which, until the hybrid mode ended, offered a structured environment and a chance to socialize for MS and US students who otherwise would have been at home on remote days. “The Knights provided academic support where needed and played games during down times. They’re what made Knight School so enjoyable!” says O’Loughlin. At the Upper School, too, Knights play an essential gobetween role. Knight Maggie Hersam learned to toggle between being a friendly presence, one who chats with students before classes, and being the authority figure who keeps them socially distanced and walking in the stipulated direction. “A big part of the job was trying to keep the students safe,” says Hersam, “and promoting the idea that we’re very lucky to be open this year, to be able to see friends—and we want to keep it that way.” Junior Connie Yang’s whole U.S. History class is grateful to Hersam, she says, “for supporting us in an unfamiliar year by connecting us with our fully remote teacher, Mr. Sternberg. Ms. Hersam worked us through the countless technological issues, and she is constantly patient and kindhearted.” Hersam was also paired with Upper School history teacher Jessica Stokes, Zooming in until fully vaccinated after Spring Break. “I really needed to be able to partner with a Knight to clue me in on the class vibe that you can’t get when you aren’t there, to observe and provide a third perspective on how well something worked,” says Stokes. “Maggie did all of that, and she was excellent at promoting camaraderie among the students while also helping them stay on task.” Eager to learn more about teaching as she considers that career path, Hersam, who will return next fall to Bucknell University as a senior after taking time off, reached out to Stokes and Sternberg for some mentoring. “They actually went out of their way to meet with me pretty often outside of class. It was really cool to develop a relationship with them and to see them in action. I feel lucky for that,” she says. Hersam is also grateful for the chance to broaden her experience by moving to the Lower School after Spring Break when a need developed there. Working with first- and second-graders, she helps out in math classes and is the only 32

adult in the room teaching Spanish, which she had studied in high school and college. “It’s been a big adjustment, but I’m really happy with it.” Encouraged by Lippard and others to use their particular skills and seek out additional opportunities and roles, the Knights have sat in on other teachers’ classes, helped coach, contributed to DEIG initiatives, and lent a hand in Admissions and research-analysis work. When the Middle School was down two Tech Team members in December, Knight Peter O’Leary’s college-job experience in classroom technology support came to light, and he was soon hired as a full-time academic technology specialist, while still working with French teacher Youssef Talha in his seventh-grade classes. “That class work helps me stay in the loop about tech needs and gives me a useful perspective on what teachers and students are experiencing on a daily basis,” O’Leary says. “This has been a tremendous opportunity for me to be immersed in many aspects of a K–12 school and to explore education as a career path.” Crucial among Lippard’s goals for the Knight Corps was providing these opportunities for growth. In addition to giving the Knights a robust orientation, he designed into the program a weekly seminar called ACT—Acting, Caring, and Thinking like an educator—which he convenes to help the group “use each other as a sort of professional learning community to get feedback, to strategize and problem solve, to share frustrations and successes,” Lippard says. The Knights also participate in monthly SEED training (Seeking Educational Excellence and Diversity), led by Emma Price, who sees the Knight Corps program as “an opportunity for their growth and for our mentorship and growth, as well,” she says. “I really like the service-corps model; I think that’s very powerful for our institution.” Given the faculty support for the innovative concept and the Knights’ own reactions to the experience, plans are underway, Lippard says, to launch another version of the Corps next year. These pioneering Knights are also making plans— several of them eyeing the territory ahead with clarified vision, a new sense of self. Hersam says, “The experience has taught me a lot about adaptability and flexibility, as well as teaching. I’ve really enjoyed it, and I feel like I’ve grown a lot. I can see that education might be the right path for me; I’m really grateful that I got to figure that out.” Although Ridoré still wants to be a performing artist, this past year has altered his life vision; he is now applying to music education graduate programs. “BB&N has taught me how much gratification you can get out of the relationships you build with the students and with the faculty and staff. That has been the best part of this year—the community,” he says. “If I can work in an environment where I can cultivate those same relationships that I have at BB&N, that would be awesome.”

Beyond our echo chambers In the past year as COVID raged and vast swathes of the country quarantined, fundamental rifts in America surfaced in dramatic ways, drawing bold lines between culture, geography, and ideology. To BB&N students, never had their country felt more divided. In thinking about this challenging and scary new reality’s effect on students, BB&N Chief Learning Officer Jed Lippard took action. Lippard designed a Senior Spring Project course called “Beyond Our Echo Chambers” that would seek understanding and common ground through the following course description: If the 2020 Presidential Election taught us anything, it’s that our nation is polarized, the likes of which we have not seen since the Civil War. In this seminar, Seniors will engage via videoconference with high school Seniors from the “other” part of America—the deep red states—to engage in critical dialogue about some of the most controversial issues of our day: abortion rights, gun control, immigration, climate change, LGBTQA+ equality, police reform. The goal is to practice civil discourse, to humanize the other, and to expand our perspectives beyond our immediate echo chambers. With a mixture of ambivalence, nervousness, and excitement, 12 BB&N seniors signed up to engage in a discourse with 10 students from Sam Houston High School, a comprehensive public high school in Moss Bluff, Louisiana. The results were surprising and productive, allowing many students to find nuggets of hope in the future despite the numerous outward differences between them and their Sam Houston counterparts. “I was blown away at the thoughtfulness and compassion of the students,” Lippard notes. “For this little laboratory or petri dish we created, humanizing the ‘other side’ proved that productive discussions can be had around topics that initially seem daunting to reconcile. As educators, we have a moral imperative to teach these skills—empathy, understanding conflicting perspectives—and give this generation the tools to find common ground and compromise.” What follows are a few excerpts from BB&N student reflective journals recounting their experiences and emotions during the course. 34

SAMIRAH MOODY ’21

LOWELL SCHOOL DISTRICT INTERNSHIP My Spring was hectic…but it was the best two months I could have asked for. I had two internships that helped encompass my SSP: an internship at the Lowell District Office shadowing the Chief Equity Officer, Latifah Philips, and an internship with the start-up company Five Fifths, under BB&N alumni Andre Joseph ’10 and Kyle Umemba ’11. I ran for BB&N track and my club track team, the Metropolis Cobras. I volunteered with the Metro Cobras on my days off from training, or would just double up, and attended the virtual seminar Beyond Echo Chambers with students from Sam Houston High School. My goal was to achieve some form of personal growth and maybe get more of an idea as to what I want to do with my life moving forward, both of which were accomplished with flying colors.

Lowell proved to be extremely rewarding, as I spearheaded the formation of the Lowell Student Advisory Council with the high school students within the district. The idea blossomed out of a protest in the city of Lowell during the Summer of 2020 in the wake of the death of Moses Brown, an unfortunate tragedy happening in the midst of the Black Lives Matter protests erupting across the country. It was at this protest that students expressed a desire to change how their schools are run and emphasize the need to prioritize equitable education for students.

Fast forward to March of 2021, where I entered a room full of bright-eyed students who looked just like me, and yet had such different experiences. Week one was a lot of preliminary research on my part, looking into comparable districts (ones with similar demographics) that had student advisory councils. I mainly used the Boston Student Advisory Council as a model


to create a presentation surrounding the structures and policies to be used to form the Lowell Student Advisory Council. The first meeting was nerve racking, and I felt ill-prepared to be presenting in front of the superintendent, office staff, and students about two districts I knew very little about, and yet I did it without missing a beat. From there on we were off rolling with weekly meetings that I facilitated to create a mission statement and finalize a recruitment plan.

All the planning and official work was fruitful, but not even close to being where I learned my greatest lessons. For one, these eight students are passionate about the numerous fights for social justice, and yet they often don’t have the access to know about all the resources out there. We created a group chat where I would share articles or other social media accounts surrounding current day battles for equal opportunity, and they were so grateful it made me sad; for they should know and have such tools at their fingertips, because with such knowledge they are that much more powerful. They have grit and are the definition of perseverance in the face of adversity—just being in their presence made me want to push through anything.

Secondly, my boss, Latifah Philips, is a black woman in a position of power. She’s traveled, she’s studied, and she’s seen firsthand what it’s like for people to try to knock her down a peg. I attended a school board meeting where a white male member of the school committee tried to convince the community that Ms. Philip was wrong for advocating for more language services in a district where almost half the students are ELL or have first languages other than English. I know it’s a grueling task to defy the odds and be more than what you’re expected to be in society, but she showed me it could be done, so I’m grateful.

proofreading could be done to increase the quality of any given transcription. For me in particular, this was fascinating, because I got to see how different people would interpret and try to decipher the same piece of text from different angles.

Yet, as my experience with transcribing increased, I became more and more fascinated with the actual literary works I interacted with. By transcribing different works from different periods of time, I felt as if I was immersing myself in various periods of history. I was able to study the data of early Harvard Astronomers, and examine how they used pages and pages of notebook paper to investigate and measure cosmic phenomena. I had the chance to look at the products of artists firsthand and observe how different press outlets interpreted them in various ways. I could study letters and memoirs written by people involved with the day to day function of the Freedmen’s Bureau, and gain an inside look into the function of that governmental organization. These valuable experiences were something that also helped me develop on a personal level and move toward a more multicultural, diverse outlook in general.

Ultimately, while my SSP has come to an end, the valuable lessons I’ve learned as a Smithsonian Digital Volunteer will stay with me forever. Moving forward, as I go into this summer, as well as my upcoming undergraduate journey, I will certainly keep transcribing various documents, in the hope of gaining new knowledge and experiencing new portions of history.

SMITHSONIAN DIGITAL VOLUNTEER WORK This spring, as part of my Senior Spring Project (SSP), I had the opportunity to serve as a Smithsonian Digital Volunteer and collaborate with more than 15,000 other individuals to transcribe primary documents and works of literature via the Smithsonian Transcription Center. According to the Transcription Center, the purpose of this transcription is to improve internet accessibility and readability of documents, facilitate research for both the arts and sciences, and afford volunteers the ability to engage directly with primary sources.

This activity initially captivated me because of a mixture of flexibility and collaboration. I was able to transcribe whenever I wanted without any specific time limitations, simply because work was done through a digital platform. Additionally, since multiple volunteers could work on one document, editing and

three times a week and would help out with whatever lab work Erik was doing.

A highlight of the work I did was one of the first experiments that I performed on my own with Erik’s guidance where we got good data. The experiment was testing to see whether heparin, a drug that was serendipitously discovered to have an impact on immune responses in tumors, did in fact boost the impact of an immune therapy on a cancer cell line that was grown in the lab. For this experiment I plated and treated the cells, which included a lot of precise pipetting and required a sterile work environment. The fact that it was the first experiment that I did myself created a lot of room for error and we were worried the experiment would need to be re-done. However, three days later when we got the results back everything worked and we got positive results showing that heparin in combination with an immune therapy did enhance the immune response. This was incredibly exciting because it is research that could eventually be used in actual patients in the future.

DANA FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE INTERNSHIP For my SSP this year I had an internship at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in the Barbie Lab, which focuses on research and discovery of immune therapies for lung cancer and other thoracic cancers. I specifically worked with Dr. Erik Knelson who is an oncologist at Dana Farber and does research in the Barbie Lab about lung cancer and mesothelioma. Erik was an amazing mentor and made lots of time for me in his busy day to go into the lab to perform experiments and go over data. I was extremely excited when I heard that my internship would actually be in person because I originally planned for it to be virtual, but thanks to the vaccines it was fully on site. I would go into the lab, which was located in the Longwood Center, around

38

I learned more in this internship than I ever could have expected thanks to Erik and his guidance. Although I thought that he sometimes trusted me too much, I realized that part of the reason I learned so much and became increasingly comfortable in the lab was because I was actually doing and not only watching. I felt like this internship was incredibly valuable for me, especially going into college next year where I have to figure out what I want to do. I learned that I do like research, but more importantly research and work that impacts people and can make a difference in their lives. One of the things that is so great about Senior Spring Project is that you can have opportunities like these to do work that excites you outside of the curriculum, and even though my role was so minimal, I felt like I was helping and making a small difference.

“I see this as an opportunity for BB&N to invest for the future, and to make choices that will benefit their future students and our planet.” CLIO QUILTER-VAGTS ACTIVITAS ARCHITECTURAL INTERNSHIP Part of my SSP this spring was to learn about new, sustainable building practices and materials, native plants, and alternative hardscapes that could hopefully be implemented into BB&N’s new Grove Street project design plan. I am so passionate about the changing climate, and hope to really push BB&N to make a commitment to a sustainable future. I see this as an opportunity for BB&N to invest for the future, and to make choices that will benefit their future students and our planet.

Learning about native plants, and how they support our local ecosystems, has also been a highlight of this project, and was what I originally focused on. I was especially interested in

finding ways to bring both beauty and practicality into the space.

The architecture firm (Activitas ) I worked with was so kind, and included me in many ways throughout the spring, allowing me to learn so much. They invited me to meetings, shared design plans, and even met one-on-one with me throughout the process to try to involve me in all that they’ve been doing. It has been so fun to have the opportunity to envision a more sustainable future for our school, and I am excited to see what BB&N decides to do. Clio Quilter-Vagts ’21

BB&N PARENTS CONTRIBUTE MORE THAN $171,000 FOR FACULTY/STAFF APPRECIATION FUND

Ricardo Pontes, Dining Services

“ Thank you to the entire BB&N family— the teachers, administration, donors, food service, environmental service, athletic staff, and any others who are hidden heroes in the wings—for doing your best to keep everyone safe while championing the best from the educators and students. We are profoundly impressed and grateful.” — Upper School Family

2020-2021 was a year like no other for BB&N students, faculty, and staff, as well as the many Parents’ Association volunteers who were unable to come on campus for their usual faculty and staff appreciation events. Undaunted by the challenge, the Parents’ Association leadership team came up with an alternative but equally meaningful opportunity to recognize the incredible hard work and dedication of BB&N’s faculty and staff in this extraordinary year. The answer took the form of an all-school online initiative to raise funds for a holiday appreciation gift that would be distributed equitably to faculty and staff members during the holiday season. The response to the launch of the Parents’ Association Faculty and Staff Appreciation Fund was immediate: within 24 hours, nearly $15,000 had been contributed. The tremendous outpouring of support from the parent community continued steadily until the winter break, resulting in a total of $171,421 received from 362 families. This allowed the Parents’ Association to provide each full-time faculty and staff member with a gift of $525 on their final paycheck of 2020. A happy new year indeed!


“ The grace, kindness, and unconditional support with which the BB&N faculty and staff have approached this unprecedented school year is hard to put into words. We are so grateful for all of you and the big and small actions you take every day to give our kids the joy and love for learning that is even more precious during these times.” — Middle/Upper School Family

“ A BIG thank you to all the BB&N faculty and staff. This year truly demonstrates your care and commitment to developing the future citizens of our world. Our children are very fortunate.” — Lower/Upper School Family

“ Thank you very much to BB&N families for your incredible support during these past few months. The Faculty and Staff Appreciation Gift was a special surprise and I am touched by the generosity of the parent community. I feel very fortunate to be part of such a kind, caring, and thoughtful community!” — Lower School Faculty

87% OF SENIOR PARENTS GIVE $1,062,553 TO SUPPORT BB&N

For more than 30 years, the BB&N Senior Parents’ Gift—an opportunity for senior parents to celebrate their children’s BB&N experiences— has inspired meaningful support for the school’s highest priorities. The Class of 2021 Senior Parents’ Gift Committee endorsed two priorities for the designation of their Senior Parents’ Gift: The BB&N Fund and The Parents of the Class of 2021 Endowment Fund for a uKnighted Community. Inspired by the impact of the uKnighted Community Fund this year, this new endowment fund will provide income to support BB&N initiatives aimed at ensuring that all members of the community—students, current parents, faculty, and staff—can continue to participate in the full BB&N experience, even in challenging times when unanticipated needs may surface. Primary focuses of the Fund include additional resources for families, faculty, and staff in areas such as financial aid, technology, food security, and transportation. These resources will allow BB&N to respond to emergent needs so that the community can remain whole, connected, and uKnighted.

DAY OF GIVING HONORS BB&N SUPERHEROES

“ These two exemplary teachers not only taught my daughter academically but became trusted friends and mentors as well. She will always remember them with pride and the strength she took from being in their classrooms.” — Upper School Parent

April 9, 2021, marked BB&N’s fifth annual Day of Giving, during which all members of the community were invited to come together in their combined support for the school by making a gift to The BB&N Fund. This year’s drive was aimed at honoring all faculty and staff—BB&N’s Superheroes—whose responsiveness and innovation over the course of the 2020-2021 academic year was truly heroic. The goal of the Day was simple: to secure 336 gifts in honor of BB&N’s 336 faculty and staff members. Thanks to the tremendous support of the community, we far surpassed that goal and set a new Day of Giving record of 454 gifts! Over the course of the Day, gifts received from alumni/ae, parents, past parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and students helped to unlock not just one but two challenge gifts, and raised $524,196 in support for The BB&N Fund. Donors were encouraged to make their gifts in honor of any or all of the 336 members of BB&N’s faculty and staff, and many included testimonials about why they chose to honor their BB&N Superhero(es), like those shared here.


“ Thank you to all BB&N faculty and staff for your dedication, perseverance, and patience!” — Middle School Parent

From the Archives: Graduations Past This year’s sun bedecked Graduation inspired us to dig deeply into the BB&N archives for some other Graduation memories. Spanning from the ‘50s to the 2000s, the following photos capture that proudest of BB&N moments, and some excellent fashion along the way. We have a number of photos in the archives that have not been identified yet. If you recognize any of these faces, please reach out!

Family, Philanthropy, and a BB&N Education On July 4, 2019, Warren F. Myers, Sr. passed away in hospice, ending an honored, well-lived life surrounded by family. Warren Myers and his wife, Karen Myers P ’95, ’03, GP ’29, ’33, loved BB&N, a community with lifelong friends made over four decades. Because their children, Beth and Jay, were “lifers,” Warren and Karen Myers were BB&N parents for over two decades. That entailed innumerable car trips from their home in Revere, where Warren Myers owned a home appliance business. A BB&N education also meant stretching to cover tuition bills when business slowed. After his father died, Jay wanted to find a way to honor his parents’ sacrifices. Recalling how his parents believed in a top education’s lifelong benefits, Jay says, “I’m incredibly grateful that my parents felt that way, because I see the benefits of going to BB&N every day of my life.” A Providence College graduate (magna cum laude with degrees in American Studies and Italian), Jay earned a J.D. from Boston College. Today, he is a senior counsel with the Boston Office of the international law firm

Locke Lord LLP, where he primarily focuses on regulatory and legislative matters. “There are practical skills from BB&N that benefit me professionally every day: knowing how to write and communicate effectively, knowing how to research, knowing how to approach a project in a well-organized manner,” Jay notes. Jay regards BB&N as more than academics, saying it “instills kids with an interest in becoming responsible members of society who try to live their lives in ways that benefit others.” BB&N’s mission calls for “preparing students for lives of principled engagement in their communities and the world.” Over text or phone, Jay connects daily with close friends from the Class of 2003—friends with busy, successful careers who also believe a well-lived life includes serving others. For his part, Jay joined the Young Professionals Board of Jumpstart, which provides programming for at-risk preschool children. Then he recruited his close friend Andrew Benson ’03 to join him. Describing BB&N as “extremely important to my parents,” Jay wanted to make a gift consistent with his family’s values

and priorities. Married and now a father, Jay also wanted to do it “in a way that would extend my family’s commitment.” That commitment is extensive; Jay has served as a reunion committee and Fund volunteer, his sister, Beth Myers Azano P ’29, ’33 was a BB&N trustee, and his mother helped to found BB&N’s Grandparents Committee. Honoring a multi-generation commitment, Jay decided to make BB&N the beneficiary in his estate of an investment property he recently purchased. He hopes his gift will encourage others to make similar or other types of planned gifts to BB&N. Encouraging others is important for the future BB&N Jay envisions: a school with a significantly increased financial aid budget that allows any deserving student to attend regardless of financial circumstance. Providing “financial aid for those who don’t necessarily have the means,” is essential, Jay says “because attending BB&N can provide a truly life-changing advantage of an outstanding academic
