EXPRESSING GRATITUDE At our opening Chapel assembly this fall, I used my experience backpacking sections of the Appalachian Trail (AT) and the Yosemite backcountry to share with our new students some thoughts about gratitude and taking on new challenges. After sharing a bit about my own trials and tribulations—rainy weather, homesickness, fear of heights, among others—I concluded with these reflections: “I thought I would walk away from this experience remembering the scenery and the trail conditions, the sights and sounds, and the quiet contemplation of nature. I did get all that, but what I really felt, more than anything, was an appreciation for other people. My travels on the AT and out in Yosemite were new experiences for me, and as you embark on this new experience at Bridgton, I want to share my own lessons with you.

I want to talk to you about the idea of gratitude. It’s important for three reasons: Gratitude is selfless. At the end of my travels, maybe I felt proud, awesome, bigger than life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with feeling confident after achieving a longtime goal. But for me, at the end, I just felt like I could not have done anything I did without the support of others, whether they supported me a lot—like Mrs. Mooney—or the thru-hiker who I might have spoken with for only a few minutes on the trail. For me, extending gratitude makes us bigger people and makes large and small acts of kindness even more important in our lives. Gratitude also ties us together as a community because it sustains a virtuous circle. If I see you picking up a piece of trash on campus, and I make a special point to you to say thank you for doing that, you might be more likely to continue to help in other ways; you’ll set an example that others will follow, and maybe you’ll thank others for something they did. These small acts that we all do in a community—those things that go “above and beyond”—are all around us, and the surest way to keep them going is to express gratitude for them. Ultimately, expressing gratitude is a way of letting people know that they are known. We all have the need to be known, whether we think about it along these lines or not. Being appreciated for our good work or good deeds is one way to be known. This recognition is an important way to know that we exist—and that our existence makes a difference to others. You are at the beginning of a challenging journey, and each of you will measure your success in different ways. But don’t be intimidated and don’t give up. EVER. Instead, find strength, courage and inspiration in your family, your teachers, your advisors, and your BA brothers. You will be different because you came here, and you’ll be better for it. It won’t always be easy and it won’t always be fun, but you will find out so many things about yourself that you never knew before. So, take care of yourselves, do well in your classes, set out on your adventures, dream big, but above all else, take care of each other. We have lots of hills to climb together.”

MAINE’S GOLDENOAK BAND MAKES A STOP IN NORTH BRIDGTON Students and faculty alike were treated to the harmonic sounds of GoldenOak, a Maine-based band who visited campus on the evening of September 25th. The blended voices of brother-sister duo, Zak Kendall and Lena Kendall, were joined by the talented bassist, Mike Knowles, wowing all in attendance with their own unique folk style. Songs such as “The River” were written by Zak, and as he accompanied

with his guitar, Lena warmly drew the audience in with her singing. Perhaps the most important message delivered during their hour on stage was in the form of spoken words when Zak shared his personal journey of self-discovery. As his identity evolved from being a “football player” to pursuing a career in music, he realized that life is more about following your dreams instead of allowing others to define you.

A CAMPUS FULL OF COLLEGES: BA HOSTS 5TH COLLEGE FAIR BA hosted its fifth annual College Fair in its Memorial Gymnasium on September 25th. The event brought over sixty college representatives—representing ten states and Canada—to North Bridgton. Armed with conversation ice-breakers and a checklist, the Class of 2020 made its rounds, learning more about both the colleges in attendance and how to confidently interact with admission representatives. “The people I spoke with had a lot of knowledge,” shares River Jackson ’20. “I felt like I had a firsthand glimpse into some of the programs.”

PIETREE ORCHARD SERVES AS CLASSROOM FOR A DAY Nestled on a panoramic hilltop in nearby Sweden, ME, sits Pietree Orchard. Although it is owned by Tabitha King, author and wife of Stephen King, Maine’s own writer of horror and the supernatural, one would never guess the connection when visiting this local treasure, where the King family keeps the property as a working farm and orchard. Mr. David Rosen’s Environmental Issues course recently partnered with Pietree in an

onsite workshop. During the three-hour session, students learned about a variety of topics pertaining to the orchard: food waste, composting, the solar array that powers the orchard, and the delicate balance of sustainability while maximizing profits. “It was energizing to be off campus with students in such a beautiful setting, eating good food and enjoying the real-life application of our studies,” reflected Mr. Rosen.


ALUMNI GAMES WRAP UP SUMMER ON CAMPUS Bridgton Academy alumni are no strangers to a little competition. This summer, as a fun way for alumni to connect, Bridgton hosted back-to-back alumni contests in the warm August sun. For the fifth consecutive year, the Koop Field diamond hosted Wolverine players from as far back as 1965 for our always-popular Alumni Baseball Game. A barbecue meal followed the baseball outing, wrapping up

just in time for our basketball alumni to raise the roof of the Memorial Gym. The score of the inaugural (at least to our knowledge) match-up of four decades of hoops players remained too close to call until the very end, keeping all in attendance on the edge of their seats. Coach Whit even hosted a dynamic half-court shot contest, with Tommy Kelly ’17 leaving the court with a cool $50 for winning! winter 2019 5

NEW LOOK, HISTORIC TRADITION The Bridgton Academy tennis courts have long been part of campus. Beloved by students, faculty, local residents, and summer visitors alike, our courts have some of the best playing views in Bridgton. And, this fall, the views got even better. Made possible by the support of The Kendal C. and Anna Ham Charitable Foundation, along with donations from People’s United Bank and several alumni, the tennis courts underwent a full rehabilitation

over the summer. This included resurfacing and relining the courts (now including pickleball lines as well!), and the addition of new black coated fencing and net. Last but not least, a branded Bridgton windscreen now protects our players from the breeze and sun at the top of the hill. So, if you are visiting the area this spring, summer, or fall, be sure to stop by for a game of tennis—or pickleball—on our beautiful new courts!


FRIED OREOS, ANYONE? Like generations of students before them, members of this year’s class experienced an annual Maine rite of passage: The Fryeburg Fair. Sponsored by BA’s Office of Residential Life, students enjoyed “Maine’s Blue Ribbon Classic” during the week of 9/29 – 10/6. During the largest agricultural fair in Maine, students were able to enjoy a variety of entertainment, from animal exhibitions to a forestry research center, rides, and more. A cornucopia of fried fair fare rounded out the excursion.

EXAMINING THE FUTURE: STUDENTS GAIN INSIGHT INTO CAREER PATHS New this year, Class of 2020 students participated in the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) career test administered by the National Guard right here on campus. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program provides students with insight on their skill sets and combines individual personality traits from the Holland Interest Codes to generate a comprehensive list of career tracts, degree programs, and college options that offer educational degrees in those areas where a student’s interests and skills intersect.

CURTAIN TIME: CLASS OF 2020 DIPS ITS TOES INTO THE WORLD OF THEATER Members of the current class are expanding their horizons through Ms. Amity Gottschalk’s Introduction to Theater course. By exploring the evolution of drama from ancient Greece to present day, students gain

a deeper understanding of theatrical production, script analysis, casting decisions, and how theater and society often go hand in hand. “This class allows students to reflect on how issues in society can be dramatized and

presented to a mass audience,” explains Gottschalk. “As much as there are many relevant ways to bring discourse to our communities, theatre is an indelible, especially poignant mode by which to do so.” winter 2019 7

E

very Monday morning at 9:15, Bridgton students and faculty make their way to Twitchell Memorial Chapel. And every Monday morning, students sit with their advisory groups, often sleepily giving their attention to the many campus announcements communicated by the faculty. As a new week on campus is just beginning, the time arrives in Chapel when the podium is moved aside, two chairs are placed at front and center stage, and our students have the opportunity to shine. Just over three years ago, one of the Academy’s longtime teachers was looking for a way to further publicize more of the amazing stories that take place here on our campus every day. Mr. Travis Dube felt that “the real serious business of the school: classes, dorms, and athletics” was not being messaged nearly as completely as it could have been. It was around this same time that Martin Mooney, Head of School, began his tenure at Bridgton Academy and expressed wanting more student involvement during weekly Monday morning Chapels. As these two visions began to collide, Mr. Dube had a conversation late one night during dorm check-ins with Tommy Marhoffer ’18, who also happened to be one of his advisees, about making this a reality. Tommy reflects on the beginning of student-focused Chapel reports that year, “At first, it was my chance to go out of my comfort zone and speak on stage in front of an audience. That was something that I had never done before.” The very first report was Tommy and Mr. Dube on stage in Twitchell Memorial Chapel, providing the students and faculty with their own recap of Wolverine sports over the past week. By

the time the second week of reporting rolled around, Tommy had recruited teammate Brendan Cullura ’18 to join him, and, in the words of Mr. Dube, “They were off and running.” The first year of Chapel reports was wildly successful. In looking back, Tommy shares that as he gained confidence being in front of an audience, what he got most out of announcing the Chapel reports with Brendan was “the opportunity to meet new kids each week and discover the different personalities across campus.” One of his most memorable moments was interviewing classmates Frankie Filato and Jeff Wheeler. While he doesn’t recall exactly what either of them said, Tommy vividly remembers how “hilarious” the duo was as their one-ofa-kind personalities came to life on stage. As the 2018-19 academic year approached, having proved that our Bridgton students are indeed best suited to tell their own campus stories, Mr. Dube introduced a new semester-long course offering: Journalism. Several students signed up for this class and the Chapel reports continued, now under the name of “Bridgton News Network” (BNN). From the confident style of Corey Frassica ’19 to the more quiet and subtle reporting of Gideon Malherbe ’19, every week the latest in Bridgton sports news was delivered. Class of 2019 students Corey Splaine, EJ Nichols, and Jha’mil King each told us about the game-winning pitching on the diamond, hat tricks on the ice, and out-of-this-world three-pointers on the court. Mackenzie Murphy and Ryan Carberry were the final reporters for the year, bringing their own unique style of storytelling to an audience

who looked forward to hearing what they had to say. The tradition of sharing the stories of our Bridgton students continues once again this year. As Mr. Dube’s Journalism students explore the various media outlets that can be used in reporting, the “Bridgton Boyz Network” (BBN) has continued to evolve, now posting stories on Snapchat and even sharing recordings online. With an updated name—Mr. Dube allows each group of students on stage to decide what they will call the group each year—Class of 2020 Wolverines Jack O’Dea and Calvin Fogler have not been shy in bringing their own level of enthusiasm to the BBN. When asked about how he contributes to the success of this weekly recap, Calvin offers, “As an individual, I feel I bring an organized manner when working on it. Being comfortable up on stage is big and I feel like that helps our audience stay engaged when listening, as well as allows us to have some fun and throw jokes here and there to make it more unique.” Both Jack and Calvin have certainly allowed their humor to come through, but they have not let that get in the way of what they are trying to accomplish. It is rewarding to see the students so invested in their important Chapel role, truly enjoying what they are giving back to the Bridgton community. As each Monday morning in Twitchell Memorial Chapel closes and students prepare for what’s ahead, Calvin is pleased with what he has contributed to the start of their week: “The satisfaction [you get] when you close out the report, the jokes were funny and it ran smoothly—there’s no better feeling on a Monday morning.” BA winter 2019 9


Labor atories of Learning:

Students Enjoy Hands-On Approach

R

ich in history and poised to enter its 212th year in March, Bridgton Academy is keeping pace with the rapidly changing technology that has introduced the world to an unprecedented shift in the way we receive information. In order to offer our students a hands-on approach that will allow them to become more immersed in some of this technology, seasoned Bridgton Academy instructor and director of technology, Dave Lepage, created the Academy’s first-ever Production and Innovations Suite.

10 bridgton academy today

“As a school that is responsible for ‘preparing young men for the rigors of college and beyond,’ we have to be able to look at innovative ways to help kids succeed,” explains Lepage. “Our classrooms need to change from content delivery rooms to discussion and creation environments; they need to be laboratories of learning.” Before a selection committee for the James “Jake” Laferriere Chair for Excellence in Teaching, a faculty professional development award presented every three years, Lepage pitched his

proposal for a learning suite that would allow our entire campus community to immerse themselves in technology that lets students internalize content on their own time and hear their voice—two critical components of the growing trend of “ondemand” education. The suite also offers resources for our faculty to experience learning all over again. Indeed, teacher training is an imperative element to the evolution of this space—so critical that Lepage built a stipend into his proposal that will allow one or two instructors per


winter 2019 11


year to develop project-based learning ideas and generate content that both they and the students can use the Production and Innovation Suite for, paving the way for a truly collaborative campus environment. “There is no better way to understand our student body than to have mutually challenging experiences,” shares Lepage. “The Production and Innovation Suite can give both students and faculty a place to experiment and grow in their learning, providing a space for more hands-on discovery and collaborative creativity.” Funded by the Barr family (Past Parents ’99; Andrew Barr ’99), the Laferriere Chair for Excellence in Teaching honors a faculty member who possesses the qualities of its namesake educator: the mastering of one’s discipline, the fostering and development of academic courage in one’s students, and a genuine concern for the well-being of the young men entrusted to one’s care. Lepage, who has dedicated over two decades of his career to furthering Bridgton Academy’s mission, was named the current chair holder during Commencement 2019.

Over the course of the next three years during which he will hold the Laferriere Chair, Lepage will continue to enhance the suite, which now consists of three separate “laboratories of learning”: a twelveworkstation computer lab, an audio/visual lab equipped for video production and podcasts, and an innovation space designed to accommodate upcoming course offerings in robotics, programming, and computeraided design. To this end, Lepage also threw his hat in the ring for consideration for the Bridgton Academy 1808 Bright Futures Endowment. The endowment, funded by a group of anonymous donors, provides professional development funds for teaching faculty for discipline-specific trainings or advanced degree work and is awarded annually. Lepage was selected as one of two recipients for this year’s award and plans to allocate these funds towards increasing his knowledge of robotics and purchasing eight “JD humanoid” robots. These robots will be introduced during the Academy’s first-ever robotics course, which will debut

“I helped my friend create a podcast,” shares Bille Sheikh ’20. “The room is bigger than I thought! The studio is a relaxing and spacious room … the seats are comfortable and the dimmed lights create a relaxing vibe. The mics we used were amazing and made our voices sound extra crispy.” in the spring 2020 semester—a perfect complement to the hands-on programming opportunities afforded by this new cuttingedge space in our campus community. We look forward to providing updates on this fascinating addition to our program and congratulate Mr. Lepage for starting this extraordinary chapter in the book of Bridgton Academy—one which has been being written for 211 years, and counting.

Algorithms and Adventures: Meet the Amazing Mr. Washburn

F

rom jumping off cliffs into deep pools of water to shredding the trails at Shawnee Peak, Bridgton’s own Tom Washburn is a math teacher for the ages. We invite you to read on to learn more about Mr. Washburn. Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you did before coming to Bridgton Academy. Before coming to Bridgton Academy at the beginning of the 2016-17 year, I worked at an independent boarding school in Connecticut for 35 years. I grew up on the campus of another boarding school in Delaware, where my father was a teacher and coach. I guess you could say I have spent all of my life living at a boarding school. What brought you to Bridgton and how many years have you been here? I was hired during the summer of 2016 after Peter Gately retired. I know I would never be able to fill his shoes, but I’ve worked hard to help make a difference in the boys’ lives. My wife, Lauri, and I used to come to this area during the summers to camp and spend our vacations. We always wanted to move to Maine, so when this opportunity opened up we jumped at it. What Bridgton does to help young men prepare for college and life is truly remarkable. I firmly believe in the school’s mission; honestly, I don’t know why there aren’t more schools like us throughout the country. What is one of the most rewarding things about working at Bridgton? Most challenging? One of the most rewarding things about working at the Academy is seeing how far the boys have come by the end of the year. Taking note of where they are when they begin the year and what they have learned whether in the classroom, in their sport, or about life in general, is the best reward all faculty and staff receive. It is nice to know that you are a small part of that journey. A challenge is to get all the boys to buy into what we do here. There seem to always be certain students who are resistant to our help and not quite ready to let their walls down. The faculty and staff all work together to reach these students and usually do a great job of helping them all in one way or another. What roles have you been involved with at Bridgton? I teach math (algebra 2, trigonometry, and pre-calculus) and assist Mr. Meserve with the Wolverine program. In past years, I was a dorm parent with my wife in Mass Hall, and I have also served on the Academic Review Committee and Judiciary Board. What is something that people would be surprised to know about you? I am a cancer survivor and have been winter 2019 13


“One of the most rewarding things about working at Bridgton Academy is seeing how far the boys have come by the end of the year”

cancer-free now for over nine years. It was not a good experience, but it made me learn to appreciate each day and not take life for granted. What are three words that would best describe you? I don’t know; you should ask other people! I have heard people say I am helpful, kind, and friendly. When you are not busy with everything you do at Bridgton, what are some things you enjoy doing? In my free time, I like to be outside. During the summer I like to camp (tent), hike, and kayak. During the winter, skiing. I also like to travel with my wife, Lauri, when we have the time to do so. What is the last book you read? Extraordinary People by Peter May. This 14 bridgton academy today

is the first book in a series of murder mysteries. I read a number of his books last summer and enjoy his descriptive style. What is your best adventure with the Wolverines so far? That’s hard to say because there have been so many memorable ones, but the two things that I have done with the group that I would consider the “best” would be the trip to Gettysburg and the times we have volunteered at the Travis Mills Foundation in Rome, Maine. The trip to Gettysburg is a great time to really get to know the boys between the long drive and the few days spent traveling together. At the battlefields, Mr. Meserve is the best tour guide there is. He knows and is able to find out the waypoints of interest that are not part of the “professional” tours provided by the park. I learned so much on

that trip, in return sparking an interest in history that I never had as a student. Through our volunteer work at the Travis Mills Foundation, I’ve learned so much about the needs of our “recalibrated veterans.” Travis Mills, a quadriplegic vet, is one of the most positive-minded people I have ever met. He makes you realize that anything is possible if you want it badly enough and put your mind to it. It really is an honor to be able to help these veterans in any way we can. Working with Mike Meserve in the Wolverine program is the “best adventure” I could ask for. Since my first days as a new member of the faculty here at Bridgton, Mike has been a wonderful support and mentor to me. I consider him a great friend. My experience here would not be as special without his guidance and friendship. BA

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! THE NEW GOLDSMITH RAISES ALL THE BARS Under a beautiful blue fall sky, students, trustees, parents, and friends gathered at the top entrance of the Richard L. Goldsmith Dining Hall. The date was September 28,

2019, thirty-eight years since the building originally opened in 1981. With a flourish of giant scissors, Head of School Marty Mooney officially welcomed the crowd into

the newly reimagined Goldsmith Dining Hall. Alumni, staff, and those familiar with the “old Goldsmith” were quite floored by the transition. The students, who may have been none the wiser as to the extent of this upgrade, settled in easily to their new dining hall at the top of the hill. The Academy is tremendously proud of this new gem of our campus and we hope to someday welcome you to join us for a meal in our Goldsmith Dining Hall as well! Our heartfelt thanks to those donors whose belief and inspiration helped make this project possible—we could not be more honored by your support.

ridgton Academy’s relationship with the United States Armed Forces dates back to the earliest years of our founding, when local militia would meet and train on the Academy’s grounds. Numerous Bridgton alumni have gone on to careers of service to our country, some gaining glory and fame for their heroism, others the quiet patriots whose stories we will likely never know. The Academy’s history of service is part and parcel of our school’s story. One such chapter of this history took root in the early 1970s, when the Academy—under the leadership of Headmaster Bob Walker—was selected as a partner school of the United States Naval Academy Foundation (USNAF). While Bridgton alumni had found their way to Annapolis prior to this time, our partnership with the Foundation ushered in an era that saw over one hundred Wolverines matriculate to the United States Naval Academy (USNA). From the early 1970s through 2008, nearly every graduating class at Bridgton had at least one aspiring midshipman, with many class years boasting four to six Foundation scholarship recipients. While this may seem like a small representation of our classes during this time, these Wolverines undeniably had an impact on Bridgton through their presence and achievement, helping to shape over four decades of classes here in North Bridgton. The United States Naval Academy Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Naval Academy, has aided many students through their Athletic & Scholarship Programs, working to provide aspiring Naval candidates with an extra year of preparation at partner prep schools prior to their entrance to the Naval Academy. Bridgton graduates who took part in the Foundation scholarship program credit their time in North Bridgton as key to their

Bridgton gave me a year away from high school, a year living away from home, a year of college classes in a college-like environment, a year of adapting and fitting in with new people and new ways of doing things. All of these things made me more ready to accept the challenge at USNA.” Powers, still actively serving in the Navy, is now the Commanding Officer of Undersea Rescue Command in San Diego, California. During the heyday of Bridgton’s funnel to the Naval Academy, over a dozen “Bridgton boys” could be studying at Annapolis at any given time. Headmaster Walker was incredibly proud of these young men, and, on more than one occasion, made the trip down to the Naval Academy’s

campus to visit our alumni midshipmen. “The Naval Academy Foundation boys have been among our best and brightest,” Mr. Walker later reflected in his written account of Bridgton’s history One Hundred Seventyfive Years of Tradition and Change. “They are serious students and possess strong moral and leadership qualities.” As much as these young men benefited from Bridgton, North Bridgton also benefited from them. Our Naval Academy admits were frequently recognized with Bridgton commencement awards, often excelling in our classrooms and on our athletic teams, as well as providing a leadership presence on campus. In fact, over 30 of these young men were either our class valedictorians or otherwise recognized with one of the Academy’s top achievement accolades. Statistically, our Bridgton midshipmen performed well in Annapolis. Between 1988-2002, over 83% of Bridgton students at Navy completed their studies, a higher rate of completion than the rest of their cohort at the time. “Without Bridgton Academy, I would

Captain R. Trevor King ‘87 not have succeeded at the United States Naval Academy,” states Commander Mitch McGuffie, Bridgton Academy Class of ’99. “Bridgton was the critical path that not only helped me get into the Naval Academy but ensured I was a success once I got there. Over the years I have come across countless Bridgton graduates in the Naval Service. Some were much more senior, and others much more junior, but inevitably it is always great to share our Bridgton stories.” In fact, one such Wolverine, Admiral John Aquilino, Bridgton Academy Class of 1980, now holds one of the most senior positions in the entire United States Navy: that of Commander of the Pacific Fleet. As the world’s largest fleet command, the U.S. Pacific Fleet encompasses 100 million square miles, nearly half of the Earth’s surface, from Antarctica to the Arctic circle and from the West Coast of the United States into the Indian Ocean. The U.S. Pacific Fleet consists of approximately 200 ships and submarines, nearly 1,200 aircraft, and more than 130,000 sailors and civilians. Admiral Aquilino, whose roots include a year in North Bridgton, is the 36th commander since the fleet’s Pearl Harbor headquarters were established in February 1941. Just what was it about Bridgton Academy that naturally aligned with the next steps for these Wolverines at Annapolis? Some of our alumni highlight the postgraduate-only environment; others reference the isolation felt at Bridgton as something that hardened them to the trials of their plebe year, and most all credit the academic and athletic rigor as building blocks for their next steps. When listening to the stories of these Wolverines, what stands out most clearly, however, is the impact of the lasting relationships formed and the foundational lessons learned that have continued to endure. To you, gentlemen, we wish fair winds and following seas. BA


trusteespotlight called everyone into a meeting and told them that if they wanted to go, they could. He understood their anxiety, and he would not hold it against them. “There was a lot riding on this, for these people and their families,” Bob recalls. “They all stayed, and we’re still here because of them.” Bob describes people from Fall River this way: “nobody’s got moves--they come straight at you.” The same is certainly true for Bob. This past June, he completed twelve years of service as a member of the Bridgton Academy Board of Trustees, where he served for a time as the board chair, as well as chair of governance and as a member of the finance and other board subcommittees. He lives in Fall River with his wife, Jennifer, and their children: Bridget, a senior at UMass Amherst, Christy, a freshman at Stonehill College, and Daniel, currently in the sixth grade.

A Conversation with Bob Bogan ’83 By Marty Mooney

T

his fall, on a blustery, grey day, I sat down for a conversation with Bob Bogan ’83 at the Boremco offices in Fall River, MA. Tucked underneath I-95 and down the street from the USS Massachusetts, where the Taunton River empties into Narragansett Bay, the Borden and Remington Company (Boremco) sits on a 30-acre commercial site, which was once the hub of the largest textile manufacturing works in North America. The complex is a fascinating resource for anyone interested in the rich history of industrial New England— as well as modern-day operations in manufacturing, shipping, rail, and real estate. The heart of Boremco’s business is in chemical manufacturing and distribution. In addition to his role as president of the company, Bob oversees the commercial development of the former mill site, where space is leased to a number of industrial and manufacturing companies. Boremco has operated at this site since 1972, beginning

under the leadership of Bob’s father, Dan. In 2005, the Bogans purchased the complex from the Tillotson Corporation. Since that time, Bob has been running Borden & Remington as well as the Ironworks Complex. The sale of the property was not a smooth one, however, and there were some seeds of doubt sown among the lease holders and the employees of Boremco about the company’s ability to survive. Bob tells the story of taking on this challenge, along with the stress that comes with this kind of expansion, and the responsibility he felt to everyone who had a stake in the growth of the company. As Bob tells it, he

You grew up in Fall River and live there now. What’s it like? Fall River is very much a blue-collar city. Looking back, it was a good place for me to grow up. There are a lot of well-grounded people here who work hard. One hundred years ago, Fall River was the largest textile city in the world; there’s still a lot of that here. And, while there is a good work force here, there just aren’t a lot of opportunities since so much has changed in the manufacturing landscape. When I went to Bridgton, it was unheard of for a kid from Fall River to consider a postgraduate year. That kind of thing didn’t really happen. My father was a city councilor for twenty years, and eventually mayor for a time. He had the Irish gift of gab. After serving as the mayor for about a year and a half, he got out. He would tell people that he didn’t get tired of politics—he got tired of politicians. He then went on to be a trustee at UMass for fifteen years. Fall River has its challenges. It’s easy to mock the town sometimes. But it’s like the little brother complex: hometown people like me can say that about Fall River, but you can’t. There’s a lot of loyalty to this place. How did you find your way to Bridgton Academy? Like a lot of guys, I was young for my grade. And school was not my thing. But I just figured, “Well, school is not my thing.” I thought I was stupid. A postgraduate year was a foreign concept to my parents, but we got a recommendation about it and started looking. I went with my parents and did a

trusteespotlight tour at Bridgton, and on the way back on Route 302 they asked what I thought. I replied, “I’m not going to an all-boys school in the middle of Maine. No way.” My parents acted like parents, though, and didn’t leave the decision up to a seventeen-year-old boy, they sent me to Bridgton. I’ve thanked them for this many times over the years. I’m always fascinated by the Bridgton students I’ve met who actually knew themselves well enough to make that decision on their own—I’m so impressed with those guys. When I went up to Bridgton, I found out I wasn’t actually stupid. It’s attitude and effort, man. Those were my biggest lessons—that and learning about personal responsibility. The kids who got the best grades were the ones who worked the hardest. You’ve got to work for it. Who were the important people for you at the Academy? One of the people who drew me back was Tom Austin. When Bridgton started sending out alumni magazines again, and the internet started to get big, I learned a lot more about what was going on up there. This was about fifteen years ago. About the same time, Tom Austin had retired from Colby College and was back at Bridgton. Joe Daley ’77 had also returned. It’s the people who draw you back. Peter Gately. Phil Goepel ’66. They were great teachers and great people. As a public school kid, I never wanted to socialize with teachers; that would be the last thing any of us would

want to do. If they were on the street, I was running the other way. But at Bridgton, you’re forced to interact. You see your teachers and coaches as human beings, with their families. It was a new perspective for me, and it was great to be a part of that. I also think a lot about the guys I went to school with. That’s the bittersweet thing about Bridgton: it’s only a year. I went to school with some great people, and I wish it could have been four years, but that’s the nature of the beast. What was your experience at Bridgton like? What about the Academy stands out for you now? When I got to Bridgton, the experience that I loved was that everybody had a clean slate. Coaches were going to play you because of what you did at Bridgton. It didn’t matter what you did back in high school. It’s still the same for today’s students. There are no small-town politics and no parents standing all over the sidelines. You’ve got one year to do what you set out to do at the Academy, and you don’t get a second chance. For a lot of us, and I know it’s true today, Bridgton Academy offers us the chance to take control of our lives. Every decision we make, it’s up to us. If you want to make it, that’s your decision. If you don’t, that’s on you as well. After my Bridgton experience, college wasn’t intimidating. The study hall, the extra workload, all of that paid off. If I had gone to college right after high school, there’s no way I would have made it. At the

end of the day, you go back to your parents and thank them. Two big words for me are “personal responsibility,” the lesson that lasts a lifetime. How did you get involved with the Bridgton Academy Board of Trustees? I had been involved with other boards (Boys and Girls Club, Bristol Community College), so when Tom Austin got in touch a bunch of years ago, I knew that this might be coming. The timing, though, was challenging. Board service wouldn’t have happened unless my wife was all in. At the time, my son was six months old, we had two little girls as well, and I was like, “I’m going away for two days.” But she understood and her support made my board service possible. I had been on the finance committee at Bristol, so I knew about education budgeting. And there’s a big difference between forprofit and nonprofit finances. So I had some experience with these kinds of issues. Giving back to Bridgton through my service was important, and it meant a lot to me. You recently came to the end of your term as a trustee, during which you served for a time as Board Chair. As you leave that work, what do you take away from that experience? I believe the most important quality for any board member is character; that’s the foundation for any board. People serve an institution based on their passion and commitment. There also needs to be a tremendous amount of respect among board members in order to work together effectively. Trustees are not there to run the school, and not there to be in the weeds. You’re there to guide, support, assist and to manage one employee: the Head of School. As a trustee, you don’t want to make emotional decisions. You need to keep the long-term, 10,000-foot view and not get caught up in the day to day. Your fiduciary responsibility to the school is paramount. At Bridgton, we now have a board of people who respect each other greatly— people of good character, the kind of people who are going to work hard for the school, where it’s not about “me.” That’s what builds a good board. It’s not about “What do I get out of it?” Board members should always be working to pursue the mission, and everything they do is guided by that. I am not walking away from my board service at Bridgton and saying, “Look what I did,” but rather “Look what we did.” I’m proud of the school and the people. I’m proud that we hung in during some difficult times, that we moved the school forward, and that we kept this opportunity available for the next generation. I’m better having gone through this experience, so, once again, Bridgton Academy is still teaching me life lessons. BA


ANNUAL REPORT ON GIVING For Fiscal Year 2019 Ending 6/30/2019

winter 2019 21


Dear Friends, What an amazing year of giving this has been! The support of our alumni, parents, trustees, staff, and friends truly resulted in some wonderful work and transformation here at the Academy. Our advancement team is feeling inspired as we move forward in our fiscal year and hopeful about the progress that we can continue to impart here at the Academy. We share our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who supported Bridgton Academy during our 2019 fiscal year, and are proud to list your names in our 2019 Annual Report on Giving. Why do we do what we do? We ask for your investment because we care and because we believe. We ask for your involvement because we see the immediate impact your gift has here at Bridgton. I only have to look outside my office window for inspiration on any given day: I see the boys walking the hill, talking, laughing, and embracing their Bridgton experience. For many of them, your gift to the Bridgton Fund supported the scholarship funds that helped to make their year here possible. I look further up the hill at our beautiful new Goldsmith Dining Hall—a project that would not have happened if not for generous believers who single-handedly transformed this integral campus facility. In the distance, I hear Mr. Muench working with students on our newly renovated tennis courts, with hopes of fielding some dynamo new players this spring. I meet with Mr. Meserve and Mr. Rosen to discuss a recent Outing Club gift that has resulted in new opportunities for our boys in the outdoors, and I take a phone call from our Dean of Academics, who is working to bring a poet to school to spend time with our classes as part of a restricted gift for academics. These are all tremendous opportunities for our young men that would never have been possible if not for you, and illustrate just a sampling of the power of your gift and support. Gifting is a choice. It can be a statement of belief and support, a vote of confidence, an investment in growth and stability, and a catalyst for change. I invite you to consider such investment at Bridgton Academy and enjoy the gratification that comes from knowing you made all of the difference for the school you love. Sincerely, Jessica Priola, CFRE Director of Institutional Advancement 22 bridgton academy today
