from the head A LETTER FROM THE HEADMASTER

You may well be wondering if you have picked up the right magazine. Is this the Christ School publication or something different? Yes, and yes. I introduce to you The Galax, our newly revised Christ School magazine. The galax plant is indigenous to the Appalachian Mountains and known for its healing powers as well as its hearty and durable qualities, characteristics that are similar to the Christ School mission. Christ School has officially, and at times unofficially, used this leaf as an emblem for school publications. We have made some stylistic and formatting changes in the hopes of making our bi-annual publication more engaging. The Christ School magazine has always been informative and representative of life here on campus and off. News of students, faculty, alumni, and their activities and pursuits have been the hallmark of this publication for decades. All of that continues in The Galax. We hope you will find the new format even more appealing. Winter is a season of dormancy in nature, but in the Christ School community it is full of vibrancy. My hope is that this magazine brings into your living room or office a fresh, original, and renewed glimpse of the vigor we experience daily. Our intent is to allow those of you who may not have had a recent opportunity to witness students, faculty, and events to join in and feel part of this 115-year-old school. Here are just a few examples of the “new” reality at Christ School: • A new record enrollment; 261 boys from 17 states and seven foreign countries. • A new record Annual Loyalty Fund level achieved (2013-14). • Two new four-bedroom faculty homes under construction. • A new dining hall that seats 328 students and faculty breaking ground next month. • A new Unites States Poet Laureate: Charles Wright, class of 1953. • A new U.S.A. World basketball Gold Medalist player: Mason Plumlee, class of 2009. • Two new Morehead–Cain semifinalists: Liam Pulsifer’15 and Conrad Ma’15. • A new business/economics/entrepreneurship component added to our 2015 curriculum. As we close the door on 2014, I would like to thank all Christ School constituencies for their loyalty, assistance, and kindness. Kudos to our boys, our faculty, our alumni, our parents, and our friends for believing in us and sharing your many gifts with us. Have a wonderful Christmas season and a happy and healthy new year. Sincerely,

Paul M. Krieger Headmaster


Literary Asheville:

F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Grove Park Inn I sat in the windowsill of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s room, the room littered by empty beer bottles, unlit Chesterfield cigarettes – Scott’s choice – and memorabilia of all things Fitzgerald tucked neatly into the corners and shelved on the side tables of the room he once occupied at the Grove Park Inn. Normally the decorations aren’t here, but the GPI had just celebrated Scott’s birthday and kept the display for us to see. I was there with 14 students who were stuffed after eating a sumptuous meal at The Terrace, the GPI’s famous restaurant that overlooks Asheville, a view bordered by the Pisgah National Forest and one that encompasses the famous Highland Hospital where Zelda Fitzgerald died in 1948, one of several casualties in an unfortunate fire. The boys and I looked around the room, at the pictures of Fitzgerald, the desk that “could have been his,” and at the Brooks Brothers suit hanging limply from the bathroom door –not his, but from the period. We imagined ourselves here in 1936, listening to Scott give one of his most famous interviews to New York Post journalist Michel Mok. With the commercial failure of The Great Gatsby (1925) and the harsh response to Tender is the Night (1934), though both novels were considered critical successes, F. Scott came back to Asheville

to be near Zelda, a diagnosed schizophrenic, and to find solace from his tubercular symptoms, a common draw to the region. After writing a series of articles known as “The Crack-Up” on an earlier trip to Hendersonville, Fitzgerald sat at the GPI and endured the response to these purgative, confessional, embarrassing, or, some said, brave articles about how he’d recently “cracked up” against the harsh reality of his shortcomings. Dependent on 32 bottles of beer a day, Scott continued on page 23

Poet Laureate Charles Wright 53

A Career of Capturing Landscape, One Image at a Time

By Donna Kinney


feature story “Christ School is mostly kind of a happy blur,” says newly appointed Poet Laureate of the United , States Charles Wright 53, “a warm, pleasant blur.” In fact, he had nothing but positive things to say about the two years he attended, his junior and senior years, in 1951-53. I met the newly inaugurated poet laureate at his home in Charlottesville, Virginia, just back from his first official reading at the Library of Congress in late September, kicking off his year-long appointment. The honor gives him membership into an exclusive club of poets, including William Carlos Williams, Robert Frost, and Gwendolyn Brooks. His stately home with its columned porch sits at the crest of a hill above the University of Virginia campus, where he taught until he retired in 2010, and his study, the entirety of the third floor, perches him even higher. There he reads and writes and surrounds himself with hundreds of books in shelves covered with mementos and postcards from his travels. Wright is disarmingly polite and soft-spoken, and would just as soon not be in the spotlight – a spotlight that got quite intense indeed when he was bestowed with our top prize in poetry, honored as the poetic voice of a nation. When I first contacted him in August to set up this interview, he was in northern Montana at a cabin with his wife, the photographer Holly Wright. There’s no cell service there (not that he would use it if there was: “I have a cell phone but I don’t know how to use it”) and

the closest landline was down the road at a neighbor’s house, where he called me from the next day. A self-proclaimed romantic, Wright has no interest in technology. He refuses to use a computer and instead writes his poems in pencil in a notebook and then transcribes them on a manual typewriter. “Right at the time I retired, they made you turn your grades in by computer,” he says. “I would have been dead.”

Christ School Years Before coming to Christ School, Wright, a Tennessee native, attended a small Episcopal summer camp turned school, Sky Valley, outside of Hendersonville. When his parents decided to send him here for his junior and senior years, he was thrilled. “I really liked Christ School a lot; in fact, I loved it! I thought, my God, going from a student body of eight to 144, this is pretty big.” It didn’t take him long to make a name for himself at Christ School. “I did the one thing that would get me known at school after my first trip to town. Like a jerk, I brought some candy back and stuck it in my drawer.” Monday was the weekly town trip, a much anticipated but relatively quick trip to downtown Asheville.

It didn’t take him long to make a name for himself at Christ School. “I did the one thing that would get me known at school after my first trip to town.”


“The prefects came around every Monday night, and they always came to the new boys first. They found my candy.” For his infraction, Wright was awarded the infamous Three C’s: Campus, Claim, and Crumb. It meant being campused, having to dig up a tree or a stump, and waiting tables and cleaning up after every meal. Today, the boys just call it “getting a stump.” “They didn’t have enough stumps, so Mr. Dave gave me a tree down behind Fifth Cottage.” The school provided his tools, as they do to this day (a shovel, a pickax, and an ax), but Wright’s ax was quite dull. “One day as I was leaving breakfast, I saw this really fine ax leaning up against the door, and thought, ‘I can use that.’ I got all the way down to my tree and someone said, ‘That’s the Man’s ax.’ So I sprinted up and put it back.” Mr. Dave was known as “The Man,” and, according to Wright, he was everywhere. “He was a really good guy. It was a tough job and we all respected the hell out of him, but he was The Man and you didn’t mess with him.” He recounts the moment when it came time to

take the tree down. “I got a rope around the top and swarms of people came and helped me pull it down. It was great!” Although he claims he was not very athletic – “I like sports a lot, but I was never very good at them.” – Wright played football, basketball, and baseball. His senior year, the basketball team didn’t win a single game. The 1953 yearbook, The Angelus, mentions the difficulties of having a gym under construction and a practice gym that was often full of water. But the basketball team rebounded the year after he graduated with the newly constructed gym and the play of Charles’s former teammate John McDonald ’54. Wright helped coach the Brat football team (today we call them Little Greenies) with classmate Ellison Smyth. He was also vice president of the VI Form and was in the Honors program, the Journalism Club, and the Theater Program. Wright says “there wasn’t much trouble to get into” during his days at Christ School, but he did recount some memorable evenings cruising through Biltmore Forest. But he also paints a picture of a simpler time, when riding on the bus with his team to an athletic contest was the highlight of the week. He tells of meeting girls from St. Genevieve of the Pines (the local Catholic girls’ school) for a movie at the Imperial or Plaza theaters on Monday afternoons or at a dance on campus. As is true today, every student had a job on campus. “The older, bigger boys would shovel coal out of the coal cars,” he recalls. Other jobs included keeping up Yard A or sweeping a floor of the classroom building. Although he didn’t yet have an interest in poetry, he enveloped himself in literature at Christ School. By the time he entered Davidson College, he’d read everything Faulkner had written.


Discovering the Landscape of Poetry Wright was a history major at Davidson, and it wasn’t until he was in the Army and stationed in Italy that he discovered poetry. “My St. Paul moment was when I read this poem by Ezra Pound at Sierra Leone on Lake Garda,” he recalls. “Before I shipped out overseas, I had bought the collected poems of Ezra Pound, and one of my friends, a private, Harold Schimmel, who was already writing poems, told me to read ‘Blandula, Tenullla, Vagula,’ and I did, and I was totally blown away, because it was so romantic and beautiful. I saw that it didn’t tell a story. It just went sort of image to image to the end, and I thought, ‘Maybe I can do that.’ “And that was the start of my trying to write a poem, which I’m still trying to do.” Having attended two Episcopal high schools and a Presbyterian college, it’s not surprising that the theme of spirituality, or, as Wright calls it, “the idea of God,” appears frequently in his poetry. And while he strayed from being a regular churchgoer, the influence of daily chapel and vespers stayed with him. “What you grow up with is what stays with you,” he says. “The liturgy stays with you, the hymns stay with you, the angst and the yearning stays; that’s why I write so much about it.”

He attributes his ear for the rhythm and sounds of poetry to his mother, Dee, who was very musical. Her brother was a great tenor and her two nephews were famous rock and blues musicians, Johnny and Edgar Winter. “There was always music, there was sound, there was rhythm. I’m tone deaf and can’t play anything, so I guess it came out in language.” He tried writing stories while he was at Davidson, what he calls “purple prose,” but finally landed on poetry as his most comfortable mode of expression. “I can’t do narrative, because the point of telling a story is not the end but the telling of the story, and I always wanted to get to the end.”

A Poetry of Image A prolific writer, having authored more than 20 books of poetry, Wright claims that every poem begins with an image. “I’m always writing about the same thing: a landscape, what I feel about it, what’s behind it, what imagistic impression I get out of all of this, and basically it all goes back to that first poem, which was preceded by image. I tell a story from time to time, but most of my poems are imagistic progression.” Although he believes that ideas come out of his poetry, he doesn’t describe himself as an

idea poet. His favorite time of day is around twilight, when he can often be found sitting in his backyard, a time described in his poem “Ancient of Days”: There is a kind of sunlight, in early autumn, at sundown, That raises cloud reflections Inches above the pond water, That sends us packing into the chill evening To stand like Turner’s blobbed figurines In a landscape we do not understand, whatever and everything

10

He says that the inspiration to write lasted for about 40 years. “Everything would become magical, and so many poems came to me,” Wright says. “Everything I thought about, everything I did – I’d be playing golf and I’d make a bad shot and I’d start thinking about the poem I would write about it. But that’s the way it is when you’re really doing it; everything becomes image potential, a magic possibility, or a possible entry into the mystery.” It was a time that he relished and one that he recalls with wonder, but age has slowed down his writing. “I loved it when I was doing it and it went on for years, but now with age, you sort of tune down, not to say tune out. It doesn’t have the same mystical quality about everything you

look at.” He says he wrote perhaps a dozen poems this past summer but will probably keep only about six of them. His duties as poet laureate involve travel and several poetry readings, and while his readings are very well received (he brought the audience at the Library of Congress to its feet after his reading in September), Wright would just as soon stay home. He admits that he hates travel, and although he was invited to occupy the laureate post for two years, he’s agreed to one. Traditionally, the final official duty is a return to the Library of Congress, where he is expected to deliver a lecture, though he confessed that he has no interest in lecturing and will instead be giving a reading. Wright has practical advice for young Greenies. “Marry a rich woman and enjoy yourself!” And for aspiring Greenie writers, he offers this: “Read everything you can get your hands on.” In “Ancient of Days,” the speaker has a conversation with himself and describes his own work as “old man’s poetry / written by someone who’s spent his life / Looking for one truth.” When I asked him if he has ever found that elusive truth, he answered, “I don’t think there is one truth, but there should be one … if I could just find it.” He then quoted Hemingway’s final line in The Sun Also Rises, “’Isn’t it pretty to think so.’”

Wright’s third-floor study is a place for reading, writing, and reflection.


POEMS, DUNKS, GREENIES & AMERICA One Christ School graduate saw two others at the top of their game (and stanza) this summer For a few weeks in September, I could have sworn the Red, White, and Blue had just a hint of green. Mason Plumlee cut to the rim before screaming crowds as a member of the men’s national basketball team. Charles Wright faced audiences hushed to hear the newest poet laureate read verses about his native Appalachia, life, death, and memory. Both men were at the top of their profession, representing their country. Both also are sons of Christ School: Plumlee, a 2009 graduate, and Wright from the Class of 1953. And by dumb luck, I got to see both perform during a remarkable 23 days that filled me with Greenie pride. In Bilbao, Spain, at the end of a European vacation, I dressed like Uncle Sam to cheer Plumlee as he came off the bench for the eventual champions. Three weeks later, I met my friend Andy Taylor, Class of 1987, to go to the Library of Congress after work to hear Wright’s poems, which inhabit Italian villages, visit a Montana gravesite, and seek refuge in his own backyard in Charlottesville, Virginia.

What are the chances? Roughly 2,700 people have graduated from Christ School since it opened in 1900, and the alumni office believes there are about 1,750 living graduates. The Census Bureau’s latest estimate is that 316 million people reside in the United States, which means there is about one Greenie for every 180,000 people in the country. Plumlee was one of only 12 players who made the cut for the men’s senior national team in 2014, and one of just 199 to have made it since the first world championships in 1950 in Buenos Aires, according to USA Basketball spokesman Craig Miller.

Wright, meanwhile, joined a group of 49 who have been named poet laureate, or its predecessor position, consultant in poetry, since 1937. The list includes Robert Frost, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Robert Penn Warren.

The odds are slim One’s alma mater is rarely mentioned in poetry collections, much less ones that win the National Book Award (from Wright’s Country Music, the poem “Notes to Tattoos”: “11. Temporary evangelical certitude; Christ School, Arden, North Carolina.”). Rarer still does one find themselves in the nation’s library, listening to someone whose evangelical certitude, however temporary, occupied the same pews in St. Joseph’s Chapel. Likewise, I never could have dreamed I would yell “Go Greenies!” in a basketball arena in northern Spain, and that my chants would generate an unsuspecting smile from a national team member who once used the same weight room – to greater effect, it seems – that I once had. He couldn’t have known that two of my longtime friends were founding members of the honor council noted in Plumlee’s official NBA.com biography. To be sure, there’s a certain “oh, gee” aspect: Our little school, the one founded by Episcopalian missionaries atop mountain cow pastures, played a hand in molding genius with four folds of academics, athletics, spirituality, and work. Of course, these men, who came to Christ School half a century apart as boys, left to pursue their dreams, living most fully both words on the school’s crest – Successus and Fidelitate. The community should take note, and not stop at just lauding Wright and Plumlee’s successes. Embrace, consume, and take time to fully appreciate the complete mastery they have achieved in two independent lines of work. It is not an easy task, I know, because my mind still races when I think about what I saw and heard this September, the same refrain repeating itself:

Them. Me. Us. Its own little green trinity born in Arden. “Wait till I tell my wife that I met two guys who went to Jesus Tech,” Wright quipped upon meeting Andy and me after his inaugural lecture as laureate. His words, you might say, were a slam dunk.

Jaed Coffin, 2014 Godwin-Hauser Visiting Writer 12

in & around yard a NEWS FROM AROUND CAMPUS

By Emily Pulsifer

Jaed Muncharoen Coffin, this year’s GodwinHauser Visiting Writer, likens writing to magic. “As a writer,” he told students in one of many English classes he taught during his time on campus, “you have amazing power. Essentially you create something out of nothing.” In Coffin’s case, that “something” is an impressive and varied collection of nonfiction writing. Coffin’s first memoir, A Chant to Soothe

Wild Elephants, published in 2008, describes the summer before his senior year at Middlebury College when he traveled to his mother’s native Thailand to be ordained as a Buddhist monk. Filled with Coffin’s honest reflections about growing into his cultural identity, A Chant to Soothe Wild Elephants was a thought-provoking summer read for Christ School. During his assembly with students and faculty, however, Coffin chose to share a portion of his second memoir which will be published in 2016. Roughhouse Friday tells an entirely different chapter of Coffin’s life, namely the year he won the middleweight title of a barroom boxing show in Juneau, Alaska. In addition to these book-

Coffin, an ordained Buddhist monk, speaks in Chapel about spirituality.


length memoirs, Coffin has published personal essays and articles about topics as varied as running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, stock car racing in northern Maine, and Coffin’s surreal, late-night conversation with crooner Justin Timberlake. Like the fiction writers Ron Rash and Wiley Cash, who served as visiting writers in 2012 and 2013, respectively, Coffin was an informed voice about the craft and business of writing. His insights and example as an adventurous person and storyteller were particularly valuable. “If there’s one adjective describing Jaed that I heard most often while he was on campus,” wrote English Department Chair Trevor Thornton, “it was ‘real.’” I think he left our students with a realization that real life is a powerful story, and their lives are just that.” Coffin chose to stay on campus in the Alumni Room during his four-day visit, during which he met with numerous classes, ate lunch and dinner in the dining hall, and took every opportunity to share his experiences and learn about Christ School’s culture and history. Mr. Coffin’s visit was made possible through an endowment seeded by Col. William Hauser, Class of 1950, and the author Gail Godwin, who spent time on Christ School’s campus in the early 1990s as she wrote a book about an all-boys boarding school. The Godwin-Hauser Visiting Writer Program, launched in 2012, celebrates writing, reading, and the connections we make through literature. n

Notes from the Soul

During both of the Enrichment Days offered thus far in the school year, Notes from the Soul – Christ School’s music outreach group – performed at public schools to expose the children in Western North Carolina to different forms of music. The group’s first performance took place at Avery’s Creek Elementary School for about 200 students in second and third grades. The following month, Notes from the Soul gave a performance for the severely mentally impaired program at Fairview Elementary School. This performance was the most enriching, challenging, and memorable performance to date. In February 2015, Notes from the Soul will perform for more than 600 students at Claxton Elementary School in addition to another mentally disabled group in Arden. In March, the group will give numerous performances as part of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra’s “Asheville Amadeus” music festival. Notes from the Soul’s partnership with the ASO to host part of its first-ever music festival is a significant stepping-stone for the group’s growth. For more information about Notes from the Soul, visit www.christschool.org/ notesfromthesoul or like the group’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/notesfromthesoul. n

13 “Notes from the Soul gave an exceptionally well-organized and thorough music presentation to our second graders. It was age-appropriate, entertaining, and informative for our public school students. Their inclusion of an instrument model the students could try, an instrument representative of each family and style period, as well as vocals, kept the students engaged. Each young man was extremely well-poised and prepared. I would welcome them at our school for more!” 
 — Joanna Best, Music Teacher at Avery’s Creek Elementary School in Arden, NC.

Kirk Blackard Hits the Road Christ School Director of College Counseling Kirk Blackard served as co-leader of the Tour d ’Admission college counselor bike tour, pedaling approximately 250 miles with 12 other college guidance directors from around the nation. This is his 12th year participating in the tour, a tour which has received national

attention in such publications as the New York Times and Chronicle of Higher Education. With Christ School students away from campus for summer vacation, Kirk has found time to cycle between 3,500 to 4,000 miles to colleges and universities in 16 different states. This year, the tour cycled to eight colleges in Ohio in five days, during which time Kirk collected valuable information on potential colleges of interest to Christ School students and established relationships with deans and directors of admission, whereby they became more familiar with Christ School, the caliber of its students, its program, and its mission. Kirk was also honored to be selected to serve as a leadership instructor with the Shelton Challenge at NC State University, a weeklong program for high school students who aspire to become leaders in their communities. The six-day program allowed Kirk to work with a variety of students from around the state while assisting them with an assessment of their own leadership styles as well as a better understanding of ways to approach and assume leadership roles in the future. n


Father Kirk Brown’s Study Abroad — Voyages to Antiquity by Kirk Brown I want to express my appreciation to the Philip L. Van Every Foundation for the funding that helped make my summer study possible. My wife and I took part in a travel study program called Voyages to Antiquity, which took place in Italy, Sicily, Malta, and Croatia. Lecturers included a leading archeologist, who specializes in classical architecture and culture, and the director of religious broadcasting for the BBC. The excursions took us to important archaeological sites and key cultural centers, including a number of sites designated as UNESCO World Heritage Centers. The purpose of the trip was to study archaeology, religion, and history, especially as they intersect in the Mediterranean Basin. Most of the focus was on ancient history, which has a direct impact on the Old Testament and New Testament courses I teach. But it also touched on aspects of world religions as they

came into contact with one another. This has great significance for the course on world religions that I am teaching this semester. There was another unforeseen benefit to the experience: I spent time with a colleague who is an Episcopal priest in Rome. His church sponsors and houses a program of support for political refugees from around the world, particularly the Middle East and North Africa. As we discussed it, I realized that there might be an opportunity for the Christ School community to become directly involved as part of our service-learning program. In fact, there was such excitement about this prospect that we are going to take a group of students to Rome during spring break this year. A number of universities have participated in the program, but we will be the first high school to do so. Had it not been for the summer experience that the Van Every Foundation made possible, it is unlikely we would have even learned of the program. So I am all the more grateful for the study grant that enriched not only my own teaching but has also led unexpectedly to this wonderful opportunity for the Christ School community. n

After five summers of study through Middlebury College’s Bread Loaf School of English, Mary Dillon graduated with her Master of English degree on August 9, 2014 in the 16th-century chapel at Lincoln College in Oxford, England. The Bread Loaf program is offered at three diverse campuses: St. John’s College in Santa Fe, Lincoln College in Oxford, and the home campus in Ripton, Vermont. Dillon attended all three of the campuses over the course of her studies. The focus of her final semester in Oxford was theater related.

four British theatre companies, read specific plays in production, and then attended their performance in London and Stratford. The professor of the class, Princeton performing arts department Chair Michael Cadden, guided students through textual analysis and then to shows at the Royal Shakespeare Company, in the National Theatre, the Young Vic, the West End, and a special performance of King Lear in the Bodleian Library quadrangle by the Globe Touring Company. “All of the campuses were wonderful, including my time at UNCA,” said Dillon. (The Asheville campus closed in 2013.) “But, there was something very special about living in a medieval college. There is history everywhere. My dorm room was right above where John Wesley studied as a Lincoln College student. I also learned so much from our study of the performances we attended.” Dillon has been a member of the Christ School faculty since 2001, when she moved with her family from Houston to Western North Carolina. She teaches World Literature and also directs the theater program at Christ School. “I have my diploma framed and hanging on my classroom wall; however, it is in Latin. I am waiting for one of my C block students to translate it for me.” said Dillon. n

Christ School Spanish teacher Marshall Baltazar coordinates an exceptional immersion opportunity for students from Christ School, Asheville School, and three other schools each summer – the Ambassador Program to Salamanca, Spain. Attending from Christ School were James Antley ’14, Trevor Murrah ’16, Chalmers Carr ’15, Henry de St. Aubin ’15, Patrick Fitzsimmons ’15, Dave Warriner’15, Jake Deuterman ’16, Brian Li ’18, and David Shainberg ’18. During this three-week study abroad experience, the students stayed with Spanish families, attended four hours of class daily, and participated in tours, excursions, and workshops. Highlights included a visit to the Prado and Reina Sofia Museums in Madrid, an excursion to a bull farm, a day at the beach in Portugal, a Spanish cooking class, and Thursday night tapas. In addition to improving ability in the language and knowledge of the culture, this program is designed to enhance sensitivity in international relations with an emphasis on diplomacy. n

In June, six students – Drew Hamilton ’18, Sage Holley ’17, McGehee Porter ’17, Siler Sloan ’17, George Thornton ’16, and Jack Purvis ’15, and three members of the faculty – Mr. Leigh Harris, Mrs. Olga Mahhoney, and Mr. Isaac Rankin – made the 7,000-mile trip to Beijing, where they were greeted at the airport by Russell Chen ’15 and Jerry Lu ’15. They were beginning a 10-day tour of China that would be special in that it would be hosted by China residents who are also Greenie classmates, providing a much more authentic experience than a typical tour. Their trip began with a tour of Tiananmen Square, the mysterious and history-filled Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace. They visited a jade factory on the way to the Great Wall, the steepest section of which the boys climbed in 100 degree heat, and then toured the Olympic Village and the zoo. In downtown Xian, they visited a huge park where thousands congregate for tai chi, hacky sack, folk dancing, patriotic songs, and drumming. They toured a furniture factory where they learned about the local artistry of lacquering. After lunch they viewed what is described as the greatest archeological find of the 20th century – the tomb of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang (259-210 B.C.E), where more than 8,000

terracotta warriors and horses were found by a farmer in 1974. They witnessed the most recent excavations still taking place – 40 years after the original discovery. In Shanghai, they visited an active Buddhist temple, where they admired its beauty and its use by the locals. They learned about the origins and traditions of Buddhism in China and saw a gigantic jade Buddha. Next they went to a silk carpet and embroidery factory. On their final day, they drove to a smaller city, Suzhou. This city, with its network of canals, dates back to the 6th century BCE. Here they enjoyed a ride on the canals by boat. They also crossed the Grand Canal, which was designated as a UNESCO world heritage site. Three of the Greenies on the trip, Sage, McGehee, and Siler, are currently learning Chinese from Christ School Mandarin teacher Ms. Chung, and used their language skills wherever they could. Their favorite phrase was “xie xie” – thank you! When asked what he gained from this experience, Holley responded, “a deeper understanding and appreciation for one of the oldest and most complex cultures on the planet. I also gained a greater respect for the Chinese people and the traditions they fight so hard to continue in this rapidly changing world.” n

F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Grove Park Inn continued from page 5 decided to give the Mok interview, which was entitled “The Other Side of Paradise: Scott Fitzgerald, 40, Engulfed in Despair.” The boys and I sat and read the interview in the exact spot it was given nearly 80 years ago. To sit in the place of a ghost, long dead – Fitzy died in Hollywood in 1940 of a heart attack – he was reading about Princeton football and eating a chocolate bar – was a unique experience for the boys and one of the several literary opportunities Asheville provides. Though the circumstances sound bleak, the opportunity to see his rooms at the great resort, to sit in his windowsill and peer toward the inner courtyard of the GPI, to feel the age of the building, to see the built-in drawers that were most definitely his, and to read, as we would later, some of the letters he wrote from the GPI,

was to bring the man alive, to raise him from the dead, so to speak, and to gain a new appreciation for who Fitzgerald was. This summer, Christ School will offer an opportunity to alumni and parents to see this historical site along with the Thomas Wolfe Home downtown. The tour will be led by History teacher Ben Dowling, Chaplain Kirk Brown, and Brent Kaneft. This tour will have a suggested reading list intended to prepare you for the full literary experience and will include fine dining, local brews, and warm and friendly discussions about each of these authors and about the significance of their times in Asheville. Please join us! Dates, times, and costs will be announced in January. If you are interested, please contact the Advancement Office 828-684-6232, ext. 103.

Mebane Fieldhouse and Soccer/Lacrosse Bleachers The 2013-14 Parents Council is thankful for the generosity of its many loyal donors whose participation in the 2014 Auction and Gala, “The Future is so Bright,” made these campus improvements possible. Auction co-chairs were Laura Grace P’15 and Liz Kimberly P’16. Besides being more attractive, the new fieldhouse bleachers have seatbacks and additional aisles for accessibility, along with a platform for filming and commentators. Motors make moving the bleachers easier and faster, and an added touch is the way the seats spell “CS” when they are folded back. The soccer/lacrosse bleachers not only provide significantly more spectator seating, they also complement the rest of campus with the beautiful rock siding matching the football bleachers and buildings on campus. A dedication ceremony was held the morning of the Asheville School game, led by Chaplain Kirk Brown, Headmaster Paul Krieger, Director of External Affairs Denis Stokes, and President of the Board of Trustees Nat Hyde ’74. n

Residential Life: Dorm Renovations During the past two summers, we have completed dorm renovations for all five of our dorms. We replaced common room furniture with new couches, tables, lamps, rugs, and desks. All student rooms have new desk chairs, beds, and mattresses. All individual rooms and common areas were also painted and waxed. We also added wireless printers, 60-inch flatscreen smart TVs and added the first step in upgrading our wireless system to accommodate the numerous technology devices students have. This modern look not only gives our current students a better place to live but this will also help attract prospective students for years to come. This year, we have also started the “golden trashcan” competition among the dorms, given to the cleanest dorm each month. This has helped maintain a fresh and clean look throughout the year so far. The boys are really enjoying the new renovations. n

CS 47 AS 12 On Saturday, November 1, the Greenies dominated the blustery winter weather and the Blues, 47-12 to retain the FayssouxArbogast Trophy in the 88th meeting between the teams. This was the Greenies’ third consecutive victory in the oldest prep football rivalry in the Carolinas, with Christ School posting an 11-4 record since 2000. The crowd of students, parents, faculty, and alumni braved a 37 degree snowy day with wind gusts

exceeding 40 mph to support their team. The combination of senior quarterback Landon Archangelo and a suffocating defense proved to be all Christ School needed against rival Asheville School. Archangelo accounted for four touchdowns with a fumble recovery in the endzone, two rushing touchdowns, and a touchdown pass to senior Jones Barton. Sophomore Sage Holley finished with 157 yards on 23 carries and scored on a short run. Christ School scored 20 points in the first quarter to take control of The Game. n

It was another great year for the varsity football team. This was the third year in a row the Greenies had reached at least the NCISAA semifinal round, and they’ve qualified for the state playoffs in each of the last four years under head coach Mark Moroz. The Greenies finished the regular season with a record of 6-3 and had not one but two great wins over rival Asheville School. In their first meeting with the Blues, the game was played in four inches of snow. After defeating the Blues to finish the regular season, the Greenies secured the numberthree seed in the NCISAA Division II playoffs. The Greenies easily defeated the Blues for the second time in six days in order to advance to play SouthLake Christian in the state semifinal game.

The leadership of senior captain Liam Pulsifer, along with Russel Chen ’15, exemplified the great job the older runners did in teaching and encouraging the younger runners. Returning runners who showed potential for next year included Harris Smoots ’16, Michael Bidencope ’16, Tony Sun ’16, Zak Lintz ’16, and Vance Stiles ’17. Harris Smoots earned the Reed Finlay Most Improved Award, as he finished each race scoring as one of the team’s top seven runners. His race times improved tremendously from last season as a result of his hard work each

While varsity soccer ended up just missing the state playoffs this year, Coach Guy Campbell ’00 was proud of the way this team came together at the end of the season and gave themselves a chance to make the playoffs. The CAA was very strong this season, and while the Greenies fell short on their goal of winning the conference, the coaches can take a lot of positives away from the season.

In addition to returning players Mason Ward ’15 and Jack Ruch ’15, the Greenies had eight seniors this year: Mark Ewers, Jack Ruch, Sam Grabenstein, Connor Allison, Jeff Smilack, Dave Warriner, and Graham Lail. All played key roles for the team this year. Mason Ward was a cocaptain and our vocal leader on and off the field. The majority of our team this year were underclassmen, and they showed real promise for next year with additional experience. The talented group of juniors included tri-captains Cal Jansen, Young Perry, and Devon Johnson. They brought a great attitude to every practice and game this year and all three were All-CAA selections, with Cal named as an All-State player. Our sophomore class of Will Iorio, Wade Mouer, James Wilde, Nicky Anixter, and Riley Smith played a huge role on the team this year. The two freshmen, John Beard and David Lehr, were key players who started numerous matches.

CALLING ALL LACROSSE ALUMNI


Let’s Go Play Outside! by Ron Ramsey

Each season, we focus on multiple disciplines in the Christ School Outdoor Program. The fall consists of instruction in fly fishing, crosscountry mountain biking, and white-water kayaking. Our students can be found on the Davidson River learning Tenkara fishing and stalking rainbows, browns, and our native brook trout. You may see our students riding Jim Branch and heading down Ridgeline Trail in DuPont State Recreational Forest. If you follow the Christ School bus with a rainbow of kayaks lashed to the top, you might catch a glimpse of Greenies paddling the lines of the Upper Green River or working on rope rescue at The Ledges of the French Broad River.

the great outdoors THE OUTDOOR PROGRAM

Our adventures stretch far and wide and challenge our students physically and mentally while developing skills in these areas of interest. The curriculum developed by lead instructors David Williams, Mike Mohney, and Justin Thompson are comprehensive and work to help our students not only have a solid set of technical skills but also to develop confidence, leadership, and judgment. Our hope is that the Christ School Outdoor Program isn’t the end of their time as paddlers, bikers, or fisherman, but rather the beginning.

Reid Motter ’15 (inset) surfs the Upper Green River.

Spotlight: Paddler Reid Motter ’15 One student who continues to develop as a paddler and who has added a new dimension to the outdoor program is Reid Motter ’15. Reid began paddling as a freshman in the outdoor program and quickly developed into a Class 5+ paddler. When he isn’t paddling with the Outdoor Program, you can find him out on the river and training. His commitment to developing as a paddler is an excellent example for guys just entering the sport. It is with that goal that we asked Reid to serve as an instructor this fall and he has risen to the challenge. Here is what some


people have to say about working with Reid: “This fall he is embodying the function of the program: Here is a student that has been in the program and developed skills and technique that is now given the chance to share that knowledge with other, less experienced students. Reid has made a great leader; he is skilled, he has sound judgment, and is very self-aware. The benefit of having him in the leader role this fall is evident in how strong the paddling program has been. We have a big group of beginner paddlers that are succeeding on the water and, no doubt, Reid has played a role in that.” – Mr. Justin Thompson “This was my first year working in outdoors, and I can truly say that it was an enlightening experience. The opportunities that I was given and the support that was provided was unparalleled by any other sport that I have been in here. My good experience with outdoors was largely due to the people I had working with me. With the combination of the teachers and the seniors assisting them, I was able to learn much about the outdoors and specifically white-water kayaking. Reid, in particular, was extremely helpful in providing a safe and secure environment in which we could practice our kayaking skills. He was the person who taught me how to roll my kayak and he has saved me from tough rapids many a time. He cares about the new students around him and their safety on the river to an extent that is going beyond what is expected of him as a senior leader in the Outdoor Program. Reid provides a great role model and is a very good teacher in the Outdoor Program.” – Caden Cruse ’17

“This was my first year working in outdoors and I can truly say that it was an enlightening experience. —Caden Cruse ’17

As you can tell, Reid has earned the respect of the outdoor program instructional staff and those students he has been spending time with on the water. There is no doubt that Reid’s leadership, instruction, and passion for paddling has made our program that much better. Thank you, Reid!

He followed that by riding road bikes and then a few years later started riding cyclocross. • His favorite place to ride is Pisgah National Forest. “The trails are tough. You have to work on the uphills and the downhlls, but the payoff is a journey through old forests with towering trees along footpaths with NativeAmerican history.” Mike Mohney • Is a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), is a Wilderness Starguard, an American Canoe Association Kayak Instructor, and is trained in Swiftwater Rescue. • Started paddling in 2006. • His favorite places to paddle are Wilson Creek, North Fork of the French Broad River, and Big Laurel.

“Our hope is that the outdoor program at Christ School gives our boys a passion for outdoor activity that will last the rest of their lives. My wish is that in 20 years I will run into them paddling any one of the classic white-water runs in Western NC or mountain biking in Bent Creek or DuPont. My dream is that they will have their kids with them, teaching them what they learned here at Christ School and passing the passion on.” ­—Mike Mohney

SCHOLARSHIP beyond the gate house FROM THE ADVANCEMENT OFFICE

When we meet with alumni and when they come and visit campus, they cannot help but be impressed with what their alma mater has become one of the finest boys’ schools in the country. With capacity enrollment of 260 students (75% boarding and 25% day ), parents throughout the United States and from other countries as near as Canada and as far away as China realize there is something timeless and desirable about Christ School’s four-fold philosophy. Alumni take pride in the clarity of their alma mater’s purpose and the richness of the experience offered. If, however, there is one common refrain of added comment, it is reservation about the cost of attending Christ School today.

The beauty of the challenges Christ School faces today is that each can be quantified; that is, solved, with additional resources, especially so when it comes to cost of attendance. While Christ School offers generous financial aid – about $2.2-million in scholarships and grants for the 2013-14 academic year, slightly less than 20% of the school’s operational budget – most of the aid dollars are unfunded. A funded-aid dollar typically has endowment support behind it. Since our endowment is modest, our endowment draw only places some 30 cents behind each dollar of aid. The difference, the remaining 70 cents per dollar of aid, is simply a forfeiture of revenue. In other words, the school’s priorities of enrolling a


socio-economically diverse and interesting, wellrounded student body is a higher priority than enrolling only students whose families have the resources to pay full tuition. The challenge of maintaining our current financial model is that in order to offer competitive faculty salaries and benefits and student programing, and to build and maintain facilities that support programming, eventually the aid dollars offered need to be more fully supported. Additional revenue from a larger endowment allows funding to be diverted to other needs, such as mentioned above. One way to assist the school and to honor someone is through a named scholarship. Currently, Christ School has 22 named scholarship funds. Here is a list of examples of different types:

The Carlton Davies Walker Scholarship Named in memory of Carlton Davies Walker ’76, this scholarship is awarded to a rising VI Form student (or two) who best exhibits the qualities of academic initiative, sportsmanlike conduct, and personal integrity.

Anonymous This scholarship, funded by an alumnus, is named in memory and in honor of his mother. It is intended to ensure that young men with a strong work ethic, determination to succeed, a sound Christian faith, and unfailing loyalty continue to have the opportunities and advantages of a Christ School education. In addition, priority consideration is given for single-parent families. This scholarship accomplishes two things – it significantly helps

students year after year with grant assistance and it pays tribute to the ideals of the donor’s mother, as she was a single parent of strong faith and determination. Further, the donor’s Christ School experience, in his words, “made all the difference in my life.”

Anonymous This scholarship, newly created, is named in honor of the alumnus’s father, again out of tribute for making the Christ School experience possible. It will be awarded to students who are especially gifted in mathematics and who may consider the study of engineering for their undergraduate studies, as the person for whom it is named is a lifelong engineer. Scholarship funds can be created for an initial investment of $100,000 and can be added to at any time throughout the donor’s lifetime and even after the donor’s lifetime through bequests or added to by family friends or heirs. The school’s investment policy is conservative and funds are professionally managed. Awards are never made from principal, only from investment growth, and the entire amount of growth is never fully expended, which means that the original gift grows over time and yields larger annual awards. Named scholarship funds are a powerful way to honor someone in perpetuity and a solid way to build financial security for Christ School. n To consider establishing a scholarship fund, please contact the Advancement Office.

$2.2 Christ School offerred approximately $2.2 million in scholarships and grants for the 201314 academic year.

22 Named Scholarships, both need-based and merit, enabling Christ School to attract boys of talent and great promise.

Traditions living on through

42

beyond the gate house FROM THE ADVANCEMENT OFFICE

legacies The Greenie tradition is filled with things uniquely our own – experiences that cannot simply be expressed in a few words because they are a way of life. Students, teachers, coaches, and mentors live the traditions – not walking on Yard A, stopping to reflect while the bell tolls Angelus, attending chapel, and celebrating the incredible rivalry with Asheville School. Traditions live on, but they do so only when tended and celebrated. Every student signs the Athenian Oath pledging never to be dishonest; to contend with the ideals and sacred things of the school; to revere the school’s rules and standards; to possess duty to the school community; and, last but not least, “Thus in all these ways we will transmit this School, not only not less,

but greater and more beautiful that it was transmitted to us.” You can continue these time-honored traditions long after you are gone and leave Christ School greater than it was transmitted to you by including Christ School in your estate plans. By becoming a member of the David Page Harris Society, your legacy will carry forth these traditions that are part of the Christ School experience. Proceeds from bequests are directed according to the donor’s wishes, although we encourage gifts to the school’s endowment. More than 75 individuals have already established planned gifts for Christ School, thus committing to truly transmit it greater and more beautiful that it was for them.


43 To request a brochure on planned giving, please contact the Christ School Advancement Office.

Types of planned gifts include: Gifts of Appreciated Stock or an existing Insurance Policy have a major impact on the future of Christ School while conserving your cash income. Gifts of Appreciated Securities, Real Estate, or certain Personal Property avoids capital gains taxes and conserves cash for other uses. Making a Bequest or a Retirement Plan Designation allows your assets to remain within your reach and pass along your gift at the end of your life. Designate Christ School as the ultimate beneficiary in your will or in a codicil to an existing will. Designating part or all of a retirement plan to Christ School provides substantial income and estate tax savings as well

as increased inheritance for both family and Christ School. Creating a Charitable Remainder Trust provides stable and secure income that hedges against inflation. You receive an initial charitable contribution upon establishing the trust, it provides income during your lifetime, then the trust’s remaining assets pass to Christ School upon your death or upon your death and a surviving spouse’s death. Creating a Charitable Lead Trust allows your assets to pass to your family or other designated heirs while avoiding estate taxes. Christ School receives substantial income payments and then your assets are distributed to your heirs at little or no tax liability. n


thanks to you. December 2014 Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends—

beyond the gate house FROM THE ADVANCEMENT OFFICE

Christ School marks another year of success in its fundraising efforts, thanks to you. The Annual Fund raised 14.7% more than the year before and some 42% more than only three years ago. Additionally, annual giving – all funds – increased by 21% from the previous year and almost 40% more than only three years prior. To what do we attribute our success? In business, it is important to understand when trend lines are heading in the wrong direction, but equally important to understand when things are trending in a positive direction. So, too, it is important for well-run development offices to understand the reasons for success. Thus, for the past five-consecutive years, we celebrate each year but also make sure that we understand the foundation of that success. For in understanding lies the ability to repeat performance from one year to the next, as well as build upon that foundation for even greater results. Our support comes from a loyal and generous alumni base, followed closely by parents who are either already giving sacrificially – through tuition and fees – or parents who continue to witness the maturing of their sons into young men, husbands, fathers, and leaders in their chosen careers. Add to that support from grandparents and friends and you have a robust annual giving program – one which allows Christ School to maintain its fiscal health, while fully funding this rich experience. Thanksgiving and the Christmas season each year call on us for deliberate reflection – a time to acknowledge one’s blessings and to give thanks. Those of us fortunate enough to live and work at this beautiful place, engaged in this meaningful work, give thanks for your support and for the validation your generosity extends. May 2015 bring peace and happiness to you, your family, and to our world. And may each Greenie begin by making the part of the world over which he has influence a little bit better than the way he found it. Sincerely, Denis M. Stokes P’12 Director of External Affairs

Highlights findings: 94% of the parents with sons attending Christ School said that while expensive, it is worth it and, given a choice, they’d make the same decision again to enroll their son. This is a solid endorsement of the school’s leadership, faculty, the values, and the overall offerings of the Christ School experience.

Survey says... beyond the gate house FROM THE ADVANCEMENT OFFICE

All well-run organizations are wise to seek the opinion of the people engaged with their organization and, likewise, it is important to hear from those who considered but chose not to engage. The application of this to Christ School is that we need to ask for objective feedback from our parents, which is why last spring Hanover Research, Inc., a national research firm (whose founder and CEO is a Christ School alumnus) conducted on our behalf a parent survey. Three groups of parents were invited to participate in the survey – current and immediate past parents, parents whose sons applied for admission and chose not to enroll, and parents who expressed interest but chose not to go through the admission process. In summary, here’s a distillation of what parents told us. Of the survey respondents, 53% are Christ School parents, 16% are parents of nonmatriculants, and 31% are parents who chose to not apply for admission.

Factors, in the order of importance, on why parents choose Christ School: Academic Reputation Quality of Faculty Quality of Academic Facilities School Culture and Guiding Philosophy Specifically, here is what two parents had to say: “Christ School’s reputation in the community is very good and there’s an energy, a buzz about what’s taking place at the school; it’s the premier place for boys who desire a balanced and challenging all-around high school experience.” “I am a non-U.S. citizen and as the parent of an international student, I constantly brag about the wonderful experience our family has had with the school and its commitment to the success of my son.” Areas for improvement: While current parents describe Christ School as “expensive but worth it,” among those who chose not to enroll and those who chose not to apply, lack of merit scholarships and financial aid were cited most frequently – that is, direct reference to our modest endowment in comparison to peer and aspirant institutions. Scholarships, financial aid, and maintaining affordability are high on the priority list of fundraising needs. (N.B. Christ School offers financial aid and merit-based scholarships in the amount of approximately 20% of the school’s operational budget. The practice and policy is to help more students with average grants, rather than helping fewer students with full grants.) We asked. You responded, and we’re listening. Your feedback helps us in prioritizing for the future growth and development of Christ School. Thank you.


The Importance of Alumni Recruiting One of the most valuable contributions any of us can make to the school is to refer potential students. The robust reputation of the school makes this a great time to keep an eye out for boys in your community who would be a good fit for the Christ School of today. So if you hear of a boy who is looking at boarding schools, or who would benefit by doing so, I urge you to follow the example of Royal Shannonhouse, Class of ’72. When Royal found out that the son of a friend of his was being recruited by McCallie, Royal suggested that they look at Christ School as well. This is his story: “In late summer of 2011, I had a chance encounter with a friend who told me that her son, Marshall Ranson, was being recruited by McCallie, where his older brother had been a top student, campus leader, and the recipient of that school’s highest award. Representatives from McCallie wanted to come to Charlotte in

a last effort to convince Marshall, then a rising junior at MPHS (Myers Park High School) and an excellent student, to enroll. Marshall had considered McCallie but decided he didn’t necessarily want to live in his brother’s shadow and, besides, he was doing just fine at MP; he had excellent grades, he was a starter and wide receiver on the football team, there were plenty of pretty girls there, and he felt no compelling reason to leave. Nevertheless, he agreed to meet with McCallie.I immediately said, ‘Does it have to be McCallie?’ “I had known Marshall for years and was sure he would be a perfect candidate for admission to Christ School, so I asked if they would visit Arden before they made a final decision. As luck would have it, they were planning to visit their vacation home in Montreat that weekend and Marshall agreed to visit our campus. Apparently, he liked what he saw, because shortly thereafter he was enrolled in school for the fall semester. During his junior year, I approached Marshall after a football game and asked him how he liked CS so far. He responded that he loved it! When I asked him what had convinced him to choose CS over his other options, he replied, ‘This place speaks for itself.’ “Marshall went on to make All-Conference and All-State in football became a member of the lacrosse team; he was a prefect, a member of the National Honor Society, a member of the Honor Council, and he was accepted to UNC-Chapel Hill, his first choice. Marshall invited me to his Senior Speech and graduation, and during his speech he expressed his appreciation of the involvement of alumni, not only in the affairs of the school but also in his life, affirming that his loyalty to Christ School will last his lifetime. “In my years as an alumnus and especially during the two years Marshall was a student, I made many trips to Arden for Greenie games, senior speeches, alumni functions, and graduations, where my interactions with students, parents, faculty, and other alumni were extremely rewarding. Those experiences assured me that CS is a place of which we can all be proud. I would encourage you to be part of CS today by visiting campus, attending local alumni gatherings, and by referring boys you think would be great additions to the school.”

ANGELUS SOCIETY DINNER This year’s Angelus Society Dinner thanking Christ School benefactors was one to remember! The Biltmore Estate’s Lioncrest was filled with Christ School donors and lots of Greenie spirit. After a very blustery day, the comfort of good food and good friends was welcomed and enjoyed by close to 200 guests. Special highlights from the dinner included the announcement of the upcoming construction of the dining hall as well as two fully funded faculty cottages.


Mason Plumlee ’09 Helps USA Basketball Team Win 2014 FIBA World Cup, Earning Automatic Bid into 2016 Olympics Congratulations to Mason Plumlee ’09, who was a member of USA Basketball’s national team along with 11 other NBA pros. Before winning the World Cup in September 2014, Mason said, “It’s quite an honor to be added to the National Team; I am very much looking forward to … representing our country as a member of USA Basketball.” Team USA averaged 104.6 points a game, finished a perfect 9-0, and became only the third country in FIBA World Cup history to capture consecutive titles. This victory gives the team an automatic bid into the 2016 Olympic Games. When asked about winning the gold medal, Mason said, “it’s a dream come true .... I am just fortunate to be a part of this team.” Coach Jerry Colangelo reflected on the team’s efforts with satisfaction. “The work ethic was terrific. We couldn’t have asked for more... I’m very pleased and excited and happy for where USA Basketball is today.” The 2016 Olympics will be hosted in Rio de Janeiro from August 5-21. While at Christ School, Mason helped lead the Greenies basketball team to three NCISAA 3-A championships, posted 20 double-doubles as a senior, and led Christ School in three statistical categories: scoring (15.3 points a game), rebounds (10.1 a game), and blocks (2.5 a game). In 2009, Mason was the WNC Player of the Year. Mason currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets.

The First Ever Alumni Soccer Game The first annual CS Alumni Soccer game was a success! We had guys here from as far back as 1993 and as recent as 2014. We played on a great eight-on-eight game with music playing in the background on a beautiful fall day. We took as many water breaks as needed and, if I remember correctly, both teams scored some goals and both teams missed some goals. Coach, and alumnus, Guy Campbell ’00 organized a student alumni soccer match that he hopes will become an annual event. Everyone who participated said that they would welcome the opportunity to come back again next year and help make it school tradition. Attending were: Schuyler Krug ’14, Joe Boyd ’14, Thomas Beard ’12, Sam Elmer ’13, Darin Cochran ’99, Thomas Cooley ’05, David Beaver ’02, Grey Sullivan ’93, Max Snider ’08, and Coach Campbell. “The best part was seeing a bunch of guys get together and relive the glory days for a few hours.” –Coach Campbell ’00 “Events like this are a great way for alumni to get back on campus as part of a specific group or team. Current students benefit from seeing this type of brotherhood that begins on the playing field, not just in the classroom or dorm. We plan to add more events like this in the future.” –Max Snider ’08 For more information about next year’s alumni game, please contact Max Snider ’08 msnider@christschool.org.

class notes NEWS FROM ALUMNI

Last spring, the Advancement Office sent Peter Noer ’50 a collection of Christ School souvenirs to show him the Christ School of today. Below is his response: “The package from Cissy (Elmer) just arrived! This may be ‘old fashioned,’ but please let everyone involved in this effort know that you all have touched my heart more than you will ever know! I will cherish each and every item for the rest of my life! Please let Dabney (Johnson) know that I will be sending her my ‘memories’ soon – but just a ‘tease’ here for all of you – I remember Headmaster David Harris as being so caring and loving to all students; he could be stern (and I deserved it.) but always with love in his heart. Mrs. Dave was a very sweet lady as well. I was the ONLY Northerner when I attended. One noon while seated across from Mr. Dave at lunch, he asked me to stand, face the students, and sing ‘Dixie’! I failed my first year in the Third Form because I did not study and apply myself. When I completed my Fourth Form, I was so looking forward to being an upper classman, living in the cottages, and being able to be the one inspecting the underclassmen’s jobs. I was devastated upon coming home the last time when my father informed me he could no longer afford to send me back. I will wear the cap and T-shirt with a lot of pride. Thank you all and God bless you all.”

“In 1917, the Christ School baseball team defeated the Bingham Military Academy 2-1 to win the Western North Carolina baseball championship. As a reward, the team earned new uniforms and J. Mitchell Taylor ’19, a player/manager, ordered green ones to replace the mismatched hand-me-down uniforms the team received from other schools. The team first wore green in 1919 and, since then Christ School’s athletic teams have been known as ‘The Greenies.’ Prior to that, the teams had sometimes been called the ‘Warriors,’ but more frequently the ‘Dishwashers,’ alluding to the necessary work each boy had to do. But what was a ‘Greenie’? Unsatisfired with the vague and ineffable definitions, the 2004 valedictorian, Dylan Parkes, summed up a ‘Greenie’ in his own way: ‘A Greenie is a man’s man and the dream date of every Asheville School girl. He’s the life of the party and the man with impeccable manners at every mother’s table. When he arrives at Christ School, he is scared and alone, but when he emerges, he is a man.’” In the first instance, Mitchell Taylor is the father of our beloved Harry Taylor ’53, grandfather of the esteemed Andy Taylor ’87, and recent inductee into the CS Hall of Fame. In the second instance, Dylan is a Duke grad, has been in theater productions, and has recently started in a business career. We Greenies are indeed indebted to these four wonderful Greenies who have given us this wonderful name and clarified what it means!”

1953 Harry Taylor ’53

Harry Taylor ’53 came by for a visit in September, having just returned from a trip out west, where he attended a Cicinnatti Reds game with his son Andy ’87. Andy and Shannon are the proud parents of Harrison, almost a year old. Harry loves to tell the story of the origin of “Greenies”:

Class of ’04 reunite in May: Ronnie Kilby, Dylan Parkes, Joseph Wheeless, and Zachary Taylor.


1958

Tom Connors ’87, P’85 reports on spending the evening with Phil Patrick ’58 at the Angelus Society dinner in November: “It was like old times with the Patrick’s, with Phil sending me best regards from Glen Oxner ’56 and our sending Phil love and kisses from one of his high school childhood classmates, Mary McCabe Dudley, our very good fiend in Winston-Salem. Phil has invited me to come down and play golf with him and Glen Oxner. I told Phil that Denis (Stokes) also plays, trying to put together a foursome. Phil is very excited about what is happening at Christ School.”
