Christ School and College

from the head A LETTER FROM THE HEADMASTER

We have just weathered the “Holiday Gauntlet” of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the welcoming of the New Year. One season, however, still looms large for our senior class: college admission. The college process conjures up many visons and images: the tedious application process, leaving home, arranging finances, emotional and academic transitions, campus culture and fit, and a healthy dose of good oldfashioned worry. As a father of three children currently in their mid-20’s, I look back at my parenting with a different perspective. At any given time during their childhoods, I often overestimated the importance of ordinary and normal events. I would find myself falling into the trap of overreacting by throwing up my hands over an insignificant action or decision that my eight-year-old had made. I would lament over what the future might hold for him: “Oh no, now he’ll never be able to get a job…” It was as untrue as it was premature. Having worn both hats, as headmaster and parent, I have been through the college process three times and understand how the experience can cause so much angst. Therefore, I am happy to share some unsolicited advice on “the college search” in hopes of bringing some clarity and balance to anxious parents and nervous students. •T  he transition to college is a beginning, not an end. Too often, parents and students confuse college placement with a kind of Calvinistic predestination – that life’s trajectory somehow hinges on this. Do not let society’s warped obsession of where a child attends college cloud the vision of your child’s future. •C  olleges rarely make egregious errors in the admission process. I didn’t get into Yale when I applied in the fall of 1972 and there was a

reason: I wasn’t qualified. I needed something else and I continue to thank their admission office for its decision, which has positively altered my life’s direction. •A  dolescents bloom at different stages of life, and different individuals flourish in different climates. Find the right fit, then all things are possible. There have been so many times in my life when I have had to rearrange the pages of my life’s script and play a part I had not originally expected, in a theater I hadn’t envisioned. College is one of those arenas. So while setbacks are most certainly a part of life, success is determined by our ability to rebound from them. •C  ollege acceptance should not be a game of collecting pelts. Rejection can be disappointing but can also be liberating. Rejection lets you know where you “stack up,” and that is wonderful. It lets you know where the channel markers and limits are. The lesson that needs to be extracted from a college rejection is that it is merely somebody else’s opinion of where they think you are at that point in your life. And ironically, the more selective the college, the more capricious the decision may appear. It does not correlate to where you will be four, 10, or 50 years from now. •D  on’t let the college acceptance “define who you are.” Whether you attend an elite university, a community college, take a gap year, go into the military, or go directly to work – let that define who you are and not the bumper sticker on your Jeep Cherokee. There is nothing more boring, sad, and uninspiring than the 55-year-old who still defines himself by his alma mater. • I n 1965, 53% of the Fortune 100 CEO’s


attended an Ivy League school, today only 7% of the current Fortune 500 CEO’s have. What happened? I suspect a realization that one can find a meaningful education in many places for many reasons. It is far more important to graduate from the college that was right for you, to have tried new and meaningful things, joined organizations, and listened to opposing narratives and points of view. Only by doing those things will you grow as a student, person, and citizen.

“Our job at Christ School is to ensure the readiness of each and every boy for the rigors of higher education academically, socially, and emotionally. And our job is to help each boy find the right college where that can happen.” — ­ Paul Krieger

Christ School is not elitist, and does not judge its boys with an academic yardstick or measure their worthiness by peering through monocles of materialism. So too, is our view of college placement. Christ School is one of the few schools who proudly publishes, both internally and externally, each and every graduating senior alongside the college he has chosen to attend. It is now in vogue among independent schools not to identify graduates with their respective college choices. The reason often given is that it may make seniors who are attending “less competitive” colleges feel diminished. And who exactly decides which school is more or less competitive? How deplorable when high schools, college counselors, and parents succumb to this mentality. Going to college is not just for the privileged, though it most assuredly still remains a privilege: an endeavor that was worked for, earned, and consequently deserved. Our job at Christ School is to ensure the readiness of each and every boy for the rigors of higher education academically, socially, and emotionally. And our job is to help each boy find the right college where that can happen. That is our charge; that is our mandate. So while there are “many ways to skin a cat,” let us all remember that college is merely one of them. Rather than feed our cultural obsession with getting into the most selective institutions – an attitude that distorts reality, hurts kids, and perverts education – let us instead celebrate the best fit for each boy. n Sincerely,

Paul M. Krieger Headmaster

By Leigh Harris

What sport or activity did you learn when you were young, in high school, or even college, that you still enjoy and actively do today? Does it give you a sense of exhilaration? Is there a question of danger? Does your heart flutter just a little, even though you have done it numerous times? When you are through, do you have a big grin because you made it? In the Outdoor Program, one of our goals is to have our boys learn skills that they can use the rest of their lives for enjoyment, exercise, and social interaction. Some of our activities, like rock climbing, mountain biking (especially downhill), and white water kayaking, offer more than just a diversion. They continue to make us get better and push to the next level. White water kayaking is just one of the many diversions that mathematics teacher and Outdoor coach Mike Mohney and I enjoy in our lives both in and out of the Christ School environment. We not only love to teach it to our students, but we both try to get out on the water as often as we can, be it an 8:00 Sunday morning run down

the Upper Green, or a leisurely paddle down Section 9 of the French Broad River. We consider ourselves lucky that we live close enough to six or more prime paddling rivers. In the Outdoor Program we take interested boys who want to learn how to paddle and teach them skills such as rolling techniques, reading the flow of the water, safety skills, eddy turns, ferries, S turns, and how to T rescue each other. We start out slowly with paddling strokes and rolling practice on a local lake. Once they have mastered the basics, we travel down to the Green River Gorge and do the lower Green. If the river is running we then move on to a bigger river towards the west, the Tuckasegee.


Discover Asheville Once we have done the Green a couple of times and the Tuck, and depending upon what river is running, we can do the Nantahala, the French Broad, the Upper Green, Ledges Park, the Pigeon, or even the controlled whitewater loop of the National Whitewater Center in Charlotte. These are just of few of the rivers around us and each of these rivers is a little bit bigger in water volume or requires a need for better and more accomplished skills. Actually, as the water level in any river changes, it makes that river a different paddling experience. We have had a handful of young men in the past that have really taken off and have paddled rivers in many differing parts of the country. One of our boys has been part of a group of young kayakers that paddle and go to school as they move around the country and the world. That boy is now ranked very highly among local paddlers. n Right now we have 12 paddlers who have progressed to the middle tier of rivers. We have done Section 9 of the French Broad, the Nantahala, the National Whitewater Center, and three paddlers have gone on to do the Upper Green. Every year it is exciting to see who might

2014 Graduates Mark Glaeser, Camrin Opp, and Luke Pearce Prepare to Serve our Country at the Naval Academy and West Point

RIVALS By Donna Kinney


10

I first became acquainted with Mark Glaeser ’14, Camrin Opp ’14, and Luke Pearce ’14 during their junior year in my C Block Advanced Placement English Language and Composition class. We began the year discussing one of our summer reading books, War, by Sebastian Junger, an account of journalist Junger’s time spent following a single platoon through a 15-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. Our discussions focused not only on war but on human nature and the way that close-knit communities facing adversity work together to protect one another and overcome obstacles that would be insurmountable if faced alone.

Three years later, I found myself driving north from Christ School on a spectacular, peak-foliage October weekend to visit and interview these three graduates of the class of 2014, now cadets at two of our military academies: Glaeser at the Naval Academy and Opp and Pearce at West Point. These young men left their mark on Christ School, each in their own particular way. Glaeser was a straight-A student and starter on the football team and was accepted into all three military academies. Opp was also a straight-A student and a starting pitcher on the baseball

team. Pearce gravitated toward cross-country and the outdoor program, has always had infectious school spirit, and would be the first to admit that academics were not his first priority. Their journeys to their respective academies were as different as their individual stories. But they each now speak of many of the same values and skills learned at Christ School that they draw upon every day: honor, discipline, resilience, teamwork, and the importance of positive thinking. Glaeser delivered a memorable senior talk at Christ School in which he challenged his classmates to turn around their thinking about the day-to-day obligations of job and breakfast sign-in. He asked them to adopt his philosophy of seeing it not as a responsibility but a privilege. He has relied on this philosophy to get through some of the most challenging times at the Naval Academy. Glaeser was surprised to find that the physical demands of basic training were not as strenuous as he expected. “I was probably one of the more physically fit people in our company just because I prepared more.” And while the academics have been more challenging than his experience at CS, he said the rigor of AP classes and nightly homework did set him up for success. Many of his former teachers here will remember Glaeser’s tendency to ask questions – lots of questions. While that was encouraged at CS, it hasn’t been welcomed at the academy. “A lot of my Christ School teachers will probably find this funny, but during that first summer of basic training we would be doing push-ups and I would raise my hand and ask when dinner was. So every time I put out my paw” – a military term – “I would see five or six of my classmates swear under their breath, because it would probably mean that an upperclassman would yell at me and we would all get dropped,” meaning additional push-ups. “I finally learned to listen, be humble, and not ask questions. That was probably my biggest transition.” “Your freshman year is about learning to follow, and then after that it’s about learning how to lead,” Glaeser said. “Because by learning how to follow, you see what aspects of leadership you respect and what kind of leader you will want to be.” To underscore his point, he discussed a book that all cadets read called Message to Garcia, in which the main character is asked to find a man


“Your freshman year is about learning to follow, and then after that it’s about learning how to lead.” —Mark Glaeser who’s somewhere in Brazil, and is told nothing more. “If they tell us to do a task, they want to make sure we do it. They don’t care how we do it, just to do it. It takes you away from depending on your parents or your upperclassmen and makes you work as a team with your classmates to solve a problem.” Glaeser has found among his company of roughly 140 cadets — the 8th Company, dubbed the Flaming 8-Ball — a family on which he can depend, not unlike the camaraderie he experienced at CS. “It’s kind of like being in a dorm at CS, but times a hundred, because you’ve lived through so much together, gone through sea trials, gotten yelled at, gotten beaten down.… It just brings you together.” Glaeser and his classmates work hard to stay in shape not only for periodic physical-readiness tests but to be fully prepared should they decide to test to be a Navy Seal or a member of the Marine Corps. Their daily workout routine includes running, swimming, and lifting. The fact that he is able to maintain this regimen is remarkable, not only because it’s all in addition to an already busy day, but because he was laid

up for weeks last spring by a serious injury. As a member of the rugby team last year, Glaeser was hit by a 260-pound opponent who landed his knee on Glaeser’s shoulder. The result was re-injury to an elbow that was originally displaced while playing football for the Greenies. A hundred push-ups each day exacerbated the issue. When he finally saw a doctor, he discovered that an errant ulnar nerve was moving back and forth over a chip in his elbow, which required surgery. “They did the surgery in March, and that was a really tough time. It was after spring break, during our 12-week exams.” Complications prolonged his recovery, which meant missing classes, not a good idea at the Naval Academy. “I had to find a way to keep up with academics while on extremely heavy medications.” But there was a silver lining. “I got a lot of breaks from the plebe life. I didn’t have to run everywhere and wake up early.” Although he was told it would be six months before he did another push-up, Glaeser was working out with a trainer three weeks out of surgery and had regained full range of motion by graduation. Instead of rugby, he’s now on the marathon team and plans to take a survival and camping class in Alaska this summer. He may be staying away from contact sports for the rest of his academy education, but is determined to get in the center of action when he graduates. “Should we go to war, I want to be at the front and on the ground, so it’s between the Marine Corps and the Navy SEALS.” He’s also interested in being a Navy flight officer. Glaeser is aware though that for the elite assignments, they choose you, rather than the other way around. He’s preparing by working to attain and maintain “a high degree of mental fitness.” He reads a lot, mostly military books, but occasionally a thriller. “If you defeat yourself in your mind, then it doesn’t matter

11


how physically fit you are…. Battle is not fair; if you get shot, you can’t just take yourself out of the battle; you’ve got to keep going, even when your body has given up on you.” “I think that mindset is what has gotten me through here and what is helping me excel in academics, and will be the thing that gives me a competitive edge when it comes to the SEAL and Marine Corp screeners,” Glaeser said. “Because realizing that what you get to do is a privilege is half the battle. Instead of being overwhelmed by the challenges ahead, I’m saying, ‘I get to serve my country when I graduate, I get to serve overseas, I get to have a job, I get to go to school for free. I get to have these bonding opportunities with my classmates, I get the opportunity to challenge myself,’ which is one of the greatest joys in life and one of the reasons I came here.” “I wanted to go to a place that challenged me, both mentally and physically.”

West Point

12

Amid brisk winds and a swirl of snowflakes, I headed up the Palisades Parkway to West Point. The formidable fortress (“It’s like a castle,” Glaeser had said) built into the bank above a bend in the Hudson River announced itself as a symbol of our nation’s strength, going back to when it held off the British during the Revolutionary War. Some of our greatest military leaders once tread here — Washington, Patton, Eisenhower – and we walked past their statues throughout the campus as Opp and Pearce, both in their plebe year, described the paths that led them to West Point. Both remember sitting around in South Carolina House during their senior year speculating on what was then just a pipedream. “I remember talking to Camrin in his room, telling him that I was taking a year at West Point’s prep school. ‘What if you end up taking the year off and we wind up as freshmen together?’” And that’s ultimately how it’s played out. Pearce, whose father is an Army colonel and was deployed for 18 months beginning in 2005 with Operation Iraqi Freedom, always knew he wanted to be in

the Army and knew he would get the best training at West Point. “When you leave as a commissioned officer, you have a huge responsibility. You are in charge of roughly 40 people. Those people are sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and they deserve the world’s absolute best to be leading them. And so I asked myself, ‘Where can I go to develop as a leader?’” Unfortunately, getting admitted to West Point wouldn’t be as easy as making the decision to go there. Pearce’s academics fell short. “If anyone feels like they’re not good enough or don’t have the résumé to get in, I’m someone who proves that anything is possible.” Despite the naysayers, he charted the course to get him there. “There are a certain amount of spots reserved for active duty, guard, or reserve soldiers, and they never fill those spots.” The summer of his junior year, Pearce enlisted in the National Guard. It meant he had to go through basic training that summer and then spend his first year out of high school at West Point’s prep school to get his grades up. “You don’t have to be an all-star, straight-A, three sport-varsity student with perfect SAT scores to get in.” Opp knew early on that he wanted a challenge, but didn’t set his mind on the Army until he met with a recruiter at Christ School. “I always felt that I was a little different than most because I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing.” His parents were supportive. He finished out his junior

year with straight As and a stellar baseball season. But life then threw an unexpected curve ball. “When I got home, I found out my dad was sick, and I forgot about what I wanted to do with West Point.” He managed to get his application together during his senior fall but felt uncertain about his future. “They talked to me and said I was good enough to get in, but it probably wasn’t the right time.” So he attended William & Mary for one year. “Then my dad passed away and I realized that I had started to change; I felt like I had changed for the better and felt more responsible for my life. So I reapplied and I got in, and I said, ‘This is it.’” Both Pearce and Opp attest that Christ School prepared them for much of military school life. They had already been away from home, conquered homesickness and the rigors of a structured life, and accepted an honor code. “The schedule – waking up, going to breakfast, going to class, and then having to do a sport – that really helped, because it’s kind of the same gig here,” Pearce said. Opp mentioned how the availability of Christ School’s faculty and their willingness to help taught him to take advantage of the same resources at the academy. “I had great teachers at Christ School, but the thing that made them so great was that you could go to their house and get extra help and figure things out one on one, and that’s very similar to West Point.” They also learned at Christ School to depend upon each other and the importance of teamwork. “Christ School taught us to value the people around us and help out our friends,” Opp said. “Being on a sports team and being in the outdoor program helped us develop skills as a team player,” said Pearce. And then there was the job program. “In South Carolina House, we had to mop the floors and clean the bathrooms. All of those duties are similar to what we do at West Point.” Adjusting to plebe life, especially during the seven week intensive basic training in the summer, nicknamed Beast, took some getting used to, especially for Opp. It just so happened that Pearce was behind him on the first day, when they left their parents and went through a door to find several sergeants screaming at them on the other side. “It was my third time experiencing something like this – first at Fort Benning, then when I reported for prep school – so it wasn’t my first rodeo. I knew what to expect and I knew how

to handle it. I told Cam to pay attention to what they’re telling you, focus on what you’re doing. It’s going to be a chaotic day, but it’s going to be a lot less stressful if you take time to breathe and focus on what’s going on.” They reminisced about crazy shower drills where you have eight minutes to climb four flights of stairs, shower and change, and then do it again. They’ve seen many of their classmates give up. “Something that is important to have here is determination,” said Pearce. “Quitting is a disease. You quit one thing in your life and it’s going to spread. That’s not an option for me.” They’ve also learned the importance of staying positive. Opp described a competition in which his platoon had to run up a mountain and over several obstacles. “There are two options, you can either make it really painful and

“I had great teachers at Christ School, but the thing that made them so great was that you could go to their house and get extra help and figure things out one on one, and that’s very similar to West Point.” —Camrin Opp not want to do it, or you can say, ‘All right, I’m going to make this fun.’ So we decided we were going to win it. I was behind a 300-pound defensive-line guy and pushed him up the hill. We were beaten down and tired; but at the same time, we remained positive and won the competition. “It’s amazing how happy you can be. Even though Beast was so tough, people just accepted it, and it was contagious.” A high point for Pearce was when he was able to teach a fellow cadet how to climb a rope for a military moves class. “She had virtually no upper-body strength and didn’t think she could get up that rope, so I taught her how to climb it in a way where she wouldn’t have to use her upper body. Because if you do it right, it’s a leg workout; you basically stand up until you get to the top. She made it all the way to the top, and it was one of the most rewarding feelings I’ve ever felt.” Pearce said it made him think that some day he might like to return to Christ School to teach. In terms of majors, Opp is leaning toward something IT related and Pearce toward something in the humanities. Opp wants to fly helicopters and Pearce is set on field artillery. No matter where they go from here, they have already proven that anything is possible. “It’s easy to be complacent and say I’m not going to do that because it’s too hard and I’m not ready,” Opp said. “If you look at us, we never stopped pursuing what we wanted…. Neither of us thought we would get in; and even if we got in, we thought we might not pass. Having resilience and not caring what people say is vital.” “If you know that you really want to do something, there is a way to do it,” Pearce added. These former classmates and Greenie brothers are now part of a 125-year-old rivalry that culminates in the Army-Navy game in December. “It’s a little bit like the Asheville School game, if you add another 4,000 people to the stands,” said Glaeser. “The rivalry is weird because in the end we’re all teammates, fighting for our country. “I’ll never root for Army and I’ll never support that they went there over here. But even though I will be routing for my team, we will always be brothers. Beat Army!” n

It was a weekend full of excitement for fathers and sons for the sixth Father/Son Weekend. On Friday, fathers enjoyed watching the Greenies soccer team beat Veritas Christian Academy 5-2 and the varsity football team dominate 49-6 over Trinity Academy (TN). Saturday morning a record 260 fathers and sons packed the Greenie Dome for a seminar led by expert Drew Brantley from BAM

Adventures. This included games and activities for fathers and sons to enjoy while bonding together. That afternoon fathers ventured into Asheville for a variety of activities that included skeet shooting, golf, paintball, ziplining, and rafting. At 5:00 PM that night approximately 80 fathers socialized at the Headmaster’s Reception. The weekend concluded on Sunday morning with an outdoor chapel service led by Father Brown. Director of Student Life Jeff Miles said “Father/Son weekend proves to be one of the most meaningful weekends of the year.” n

China

Ambassador Trip June 2015

Over the summer 10 students accompanied by chaperones Vanessa Giuliani and Shao-Ting Chung embarked on the second Christ School China Ambassador Trip, a 10-day journey through Northern, Central and Southern China. Highlights from the trip included climbing the Great Wall, a visit to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, seeing the Terra-cotta Warriors in Xi’an, and a sunset dinner cruise on the Bund River in Shanghai. From the

moment they boarded the Air China flight to Beijing, the culture, language, and history of China were introduced to these young men in an amazing, meaningful way. This experience touched each student profoundly and opened his eyes to the beauty and relevance of diversity. The most unique and meaningful component of this experience was that in each of the three cities visited they were met and hosted by at least one (and in some cases up to four) Christ School students whose native land is China. This opportunity to catch a glimpse into how their fellow “Greenies” live outside of the academic year was priceless; it made China very personal to each of them. n

Habitat for Humanity Key Passing Ceremony On Wednesday, October 21, members of the communities at Christ School, Asheville Christian School, and Carolina Day School joined together on Fayssoux Field to celebrate their collaboration on a Habitat for Humanity home and pass the keys to recipient Trish Wolfe and her family. During the project, which began in the fall of 2014, the three schools raised more than $55,000 and dedicated thousands of hours on the job site to help build a home for the Wolfe family. Christ School student and Habitat leader Ben Pearce ’16 spoke at the ceremony: “The beauty of this Habitat build is that every single person held a significant role. Some stand here tonight with calloused hands and others with lighter wallets. Each person anted up their efforts and their time in some way, shape, or form to create a force to help our community grow.” The Habitat Student Build provides more than a house for a family. It promotes affordable housing in the Asheville area, empowers the partner family to pursue education and career changes, and offers servant leadership opportunities to students, who learn skills like grant writing, public speaking, and home building. The mortgage payments from this build also help

to fund international builds in other countries. The Habitat Student Build is a growing partnership between Christ School and our friends at Asheville Christian School, Carolina Day School, and Habitat for Humanity. What started three years ago as an “every other year” program to build one Habitat home has become a collaboration that works to educate, fundraise, and build throughout the school year. Although this Student Build has come to an end, the work of Habitat leadership on each school campus is vibrant. Less than two weeks after the Key Passing, leaders gathered to work on grants for funding the next Habitat Student Build. Rather than taking an “off year,” each school is working to transition leadership into the hands of younger students interested in Habitat. As Christ School senior Trevor Murrah reminded the communities at the Key Passing, “This collaborative act does not end here. I encourage those of you here today, those who have just joined your school’s communities, and those who are familiar with them, to step up and continue the duty of providing aid to the disadvantaged…. one home, one family, and one community at a time.” n

Spreading Joy, One Toy at a Time Arabic teacher Jennifer MacDonald developed Hadaya Toys together with local artist and entrepreneur Vanessa Bell, in response to the current Syrian refugee crisis, widely considered to be the largest humanitarian disaster since WWII; however, the organization is concerned with all refugee children, worldwide. “We believe this ‘lost generation’ deserves opportunities to experience moments of joy and fun, and that these moments are invaluable to a child’s overall health, development and well-being,” said MacDonald. Her aim is to address the immediate psychological needs of these children who form the majority, and most vulnerable portion, of the refugee population by bringing toys that not only provide instant joy but help them overcome distress caused by violence, conflict, and displacement. Not only does she want to remind them that they are not forgotten, she also hopes to provide creative alternatives to the violence and exploitation that many of them are subjected to in the camps whilst encouraging positive group behavior and teamwork. She also aims to elevate public awareness around the importance of the humanitarian

plight of refugee children around the world by developing and installing educational exhibits, by connecting children through online engagement, and by collecting personalized soccer balls. The Christ School community has been an integral part of these efforts through the student-wide “ball drive” where kids donated soccer balls with special messages written on them for their Syrian peers. Over half of the 200 soccer balls collected for the first distribution came from the CS community and they were by far the most popular toy. “We distribute anywhere there are large concentrations of refugee children living in semipermanent arrangements,” said MacDonald. Currently, the largest concentration of refugees is in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Egypt, although we foresee expanding into European territory (such as Greece and the Calais Jungle refugee camp in France) with the recent large influx of refugees. Over the Christmas holidays Hadaya raised funds for a distribution at an orphanage in Southern Turkey. They will also use this opportunity to scout out future distribution locations along the border.

Safari in South Africa

NEWS FROM AROUND CAMPUS

This summer new mathematics teacher Marcel Duhaime took a group of students from New Hampshire to the Djuma Research Camp in South Africa. In addition to taking part in a three-week safari, they also mapped roads, wildlife sightings and water hole locations. They also

installed Geographic Information System (GIS) software at a local high school and taught over 30 students from that school how to make digital maps. Plans are already underway to coordinate a similar experience for Christ School students in the summer of 2017. n


Westward Ho! Married faculty couple Mary Jane Morrison (English) and Leigh Harris (mathematics) went to Breckenridge for a wedding this past summer, and then continued on from there for another three weeks of camping. Their 5,000-mile trip took them to Rocky Mountain National Park, Leadville, Independence Pass, Vail, Silverton, Ouray, Durango, Moab, Arches and Canyonlands NP, Bryce Canyon NP, and Shiloh Battlefield. They camped out every night in a Silver Shadow teardrop style camper that had all of the comforts of home (queen bed, air conditioning, cable TV and DVD player). Each day they tried to eat one meal at or in a unique town or location that ranged from upscale fine dining in Breckenridge to a native American reservation restaurant somewhere in New Mexico that served great flatbread sandwiches. The weather ranged anywhere for the middle 40’s in Colorado to over 100 very humid degrees as they camped across the street from Graceland. They had beautiful clear blue skies in Breckenridge, CO, and then had to be wary of tornados and high winds in Amarillo, TX. On July 4th they witnessed a spectacular fireworks display shooting above the rocky skyline while staying in Moab. “It was great for me to go to all of these places again, and also to show Mary Jane where I have been traveling with Christ School students the last 24 summers,” said Harris. n

Christ School Theater Sweeps NCTC State High School Play Festival and then Advances to State Competition On the evening of Saturday, November 7, 2015, Christ School Theater got to ring the Angelus Bell for the first time in 115 years. It is a longstanding tradition for Christ School teams to ring the Angelus upon returning home from a victory. On this particular Saturday, Christ School Theater rang the bell to announce their win at the North Carolina Theater Conference Regional High School Play Festival. The show, a one-act treatment of The Complete History of America, Abridged, swept the festival, garnering a Theater Arts Award in Props for Sarah Baldwin and Julie Youtz, Excellence in Acting Awards for Daniel Beale ’17 and Trevor Murrah ’16, an Outstanding Achievement in Acting Award for Preston Coleman ’17, an Excellence in Directing Award for Mary Dillon, and a Distinguished Play

Award for the show. The crew then took the production to the State Play Festival at Greensboro College in late November, where they brought home Excellence in Props Design for Sarah Baldwin and Julie Youtz, the Barbizon Design & Production Award for Excellence in Lighting and Sound for Chris Schiebout ’16, the Excellence in Acting Award to Preston Coleman ’17, and a Superior rating for the show. “It is the first time since 2004 we have participated in the NCTC High School Play Festival,” said Dillon. “I could not be prouder of this cast and crew. We know how wonderful they are, but it is encouraging that their hard work and talent have been celebrated in such a public way.” n

Finding Grace & Power

The perfect balance of grace and power is what creates beauty, and beauty is what glorifies God, suggests Norman Maclean in A River Runs Through It, a book students in American Literature read this summer. On Friday morning this past fall, my students attempted to find that balance and to experience “God’s rhythms.” Some of us achieved beauty, a few of us just got tangled in the line. So we press on to the next book, hopeful to catch another glimpse of the eternal. A sincere thanks to Danny Elmer and Warner Blunt who gave us a very helpful tutorial on fly-fishing.

An unrestricted playground of 1700 acres in the famous Blue Ridge Mountains overlooking Burnett Reservoir. A number of Christ School students ran in the Spartan Race in Black Mountain on a Saturday in August. It wasn’t an official team event, but eight members of the XC team chose to run, crawl, leap, and climb their way through the grueling event. Though he wasn’t the fastest in the bunch (that title went to Kels Peterson ’17 who finished the eight miles and 25 obstacles in just 2:19.59), Siler Sloan ’17 earned the cross country team’s Green Man Award for his tough performance. Coach Chisholm observed: “He was behind with me, but he consistently waited to help others through obstacles, including Doug [Bland ’19] and myself. He had a ton of grit and determination and didn’t complain once, even though he was definitely challenged the whole day.” n


8.2.8 Initiative It’s not just our area code, it’s our new wellness mantra. The 8.2.8. Initiative is a result of the careful observation and generosity of a touring applicant’s mother. Last year when she and her son visited Christ School, the mother made a mental note that while the school seemed to be on the cutting edge in so many ways, it was not as deliberate when it came to food and nutritional offerings. Some months after her son enrolled, she expressed to Paul Krieger her interest in guiding the school in a wellness campaign. After a preliminary discussion, we decided a good starting point was physical activity, proper hydration, and adequate sleep. Thus, the conception of the 8.2.8. Initiative. Eight thousand steps, two liters of water, and eight hours of sleep form the foundation of the initiative. Noted as Phase I, this part of the initiative includes the purchase of 75 Fitbits, 10 for faculty, and 65 to be shared by students; 12 new water filling stations on campus; and Nalgene bottles for each member of our community, including faculty and staff. The initiative was introduced at Assembly just after Fall Break and faculty and students are now actively tracking their daily steps, water intake, and hours of sleep by way of the Fitbits. True to form

Christ School Unveils New Athletic Logo

for boys, anything that can be measured is the basis for competition and, indeed, boys are competing. Director of Student Life Jeff Miles describes the 8.2.8. Initiative as one of the most exciting ideas for influencing student-wide, community-wide behavior, that the school has undertaken. Each interested student will wear a Fitbit for a period of time this school year, allowing all to participate, and totals will be tallied at defined breakpoints throughout the year. In addition to getting people more active, in tune to the importance of proper hydration, and thinking about the benefits of adequate sleep, this initiative raises the level of consciousness when it comes to forming good habits and the connection to living well, and is a unifying experience. Phase II will include a campus-wide nutritional audit along with recommendations, and oncampus discussions with key members of the faculty and staff to implement change for food offerings in the Dining Hall and Student Center Snack Bar. One note: Not only did the family suggest the need to affect change on campus, they also stepped up and fully funded Phase I. We are grateful for this family’s interest in impacting the Christ School community, and for their generosity in support of the initiative. n

Christ School has unveiled a vibrant new logo to represent its athletic teams. Although Christ School teams have proudly borne the name “Greenies” since the early 1900s, until now the name has not been symbolically represented. The new logo, which characterizes the strength and spirit of Christ School’s outstanding athletic program, began appearing on all athletic uniforms in late October. Christ School was dubbed the Greenies in 1917 after the baseball team won the Western North Carolina baseball championship, earning new uniforms to replace the mismatched hand-me-down uniforms the teams had been wearing up to that point. Player and team manager J. Mitchel Taylor ordered every uniform in green, and thus began the term The Greenies, which has endured ever since. Headmaster Paul Krieger feels that the new logo, in green, gold, and grey, with its suggestion of movement and abstract formations of a C, S, and G, captures the progress and vitality of our community. “The boys have been eager for a symbol representing their efforts; this logo will add some life and school spirit to our community,” said Krieger. n

Kiffen Loomis ’16 Semifinalist for National Merit Scholarship

Stephen Saye Chosen as JDRF Children’s Congress Delegate

Kiffen Loomis ’16 has been named a National Merit Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program. He earned this designation by scoring in the top 1% of the 1.5 million juniors nationwide who took the 2014 PSAT. Kiffen is now eligible to continue in the competition for scholarships and designation as a National Merit Scholar. At Christ School, Kiffen is the Honor Council Chair, an National AP Scholar, and the president of Notes from the Soul, an outreach group of student musicians that teaches and performs for children in Western North Carolina. He has been on the high honor roll every term, and has taken 12 AP classes. Last year Kiffen took first place in five North Carolina piano competitions, earning him the honor of performing as a soloist with the North Carolina, Asheville, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and Hendersonville Symphony Orchestras. He was twice awarded the Physics Award and for four consecutive years he has won the Form Award for having the highest GPA in his class. Last year he won the Harvard Book Award, the Latin Cup, and the Service Learning Award. An Eagle Scout, he has also been a valuable member of the varsity tennis team since his arrival in 8th grade. n

Stephen Saye ’18 was selected from more than 1,500 applicants to attend the JDRF Children’s Congress in Washington, DC this summer. JDRF, the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes research, has invested nearly $2 billion in research over the past 45 years and sponsors scientific research in 17 countries worldwide. 160 children from around the country and six international delegates gathered together at the JDRF Children’s Congress to speak to elected lawmakers about the importance of supporting and funding type 1 diabetes research. The event included congressional visits by the delegates and a congressional committee hearing, during which selected delegates and celebrity advocates testified about the need for continued funding for type 1 diabetes research. Stephen was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age seven. Since then, he and his family have been actively involved with JDRF. Stephen believes that there will be a cure for type 1 diabetes in his lifetime, and that people must work together to promote awareness and raise funds in order to find that cure. “I am excited to be a part of JDRF’s 2015 Children’s Congress,” said Stephen. “I feel so proud in making such a difference for all people with type 1 diabetes.” n

THOMAS CLARITY ’16

A Piney Flats, TN, native, Thomas is a natural leader. As the prefect in Young House, he’s earned the respect of houseparent Emily Pulsifer: “Thomas is entirely dedicated to the well-being of the dorm. He’s calm but direct with the guys, and he can often diffuse a tense situation with well-timed humor,” said Pulsifer. As the middle child of five, with an older brother with Down’s syndrome and an older sister who’s autistic, Thomas learned to be patient. “I’ve had to step up, to be patient and understanding, and I feel those traits have transferred to here as a leader in the dorm at Christ School. I’ve learned to step back and look at things from their perspective and look at what they are going through.” Thomas is a Headmaster Scholar, an honor student, and a member of the National Honor Society. He’s won academic awards and awards

for citizenship. His passion is snowboarding – he’s been captain of the team since he was a freshman – but he also plays lacrosse and runs for the cross-country team. Thomas feels the fact that he’s Vietnamese allows him to bring something unique to the Christ School community. “I see myself as a very diverse person. I know that Christ School values those same characteristics.” He has his sights on a career in neuroscience and possibly medicine and has applied to some top-notch schools, including Wake Forest, UNC-Chapel Hill, and Vanderbilt. “One of my favorite quotes is, ‘There is no passion to be found playing small,’ by Nelson Mandela. It resonates in my life. Taking the easy road may be beneficial to you in the short term, but putting the time and effort in the long run will definitely help you out in the future.” n

plays for the Southern Athletics organization. He credits Southern Athletics coach John Hinson and coach James for his growth as a player over the last few years. Both of his parents were athletes at UNCChapel Hill: His dad played tennis and his mother was a swimmer who ranked fifth in the nation and made the Olympic trials. Brother Jack ’15 was active in the Outdoor program. Will has always loved sports and finds that its lessons carry over into the classroom. “If a math problem involves sports, it’s always easier for me.” Although he is aware of how difficult it is to make it to the pros, that’s his goal. He identifies with and admires Troy Tulowitzki of the Toronto Blue Jays, another tall shortstop. Like many baseball players, during the season he thrives on routine and visualizes pitches yet to come. His greatest motivation is losing. “It just makes you want to go back and push much harder during the next game.” n

Will Fleming ’17 takes the mound.

WILLIAM FLEMING ’17

Will Fleming is a double threat in athletics – a starter in both varsity basketball and baseball – but baseball has been his favorite sport since he was a kid. He remembers going to the diamond with his dad, practicing plays over and again till he got them right. “Baseball is not an easy game to play,” Will said. “It’s subtle and there are a lot of numbers involved. It might not look like the most entertaining thing, but it’s a really fun game.” This honor roll junior won the Pat James Award last spring for his outstanding baseball season and, after getting a lot of attention from colleges, he accepted a baseball scholarship from Wake Forest. He’s started every game the past two seasons for Christ School as a middle infielder and has also done some pitching. Coach Pat James said: “Will is a special talent, and all the hard work is paying off.” Although he’s primarily been a shortstop, he had a growth spurt that makes him better suited for the outfield and pitching. In the offseason, Will

John, a standout on the basketball court who recently signed with the University of Tennessee, comes from Kingsport, TN, just across the mountain. He had never considered boarding school until friend and teammate Matt Halvorsen ’17 suggested it. He was impressed with what he saw when he visited, and decided to join our community last year as a junior. John was looking for a place to help carry his basketball to the next level and to learn independence. “I’ve been playing basketball my whole life, but when I got to high school I realized that I wanted to continue my career in college. I started working really hard at it and that’s what led me here.” John has enjoyed his entire Christ School experience and has been an honors student since arriving last fall. “All of the teachers are great and I’ve learned study habits, which is something I really didn’t focus on before. I think my favorite subject is math, but I’ve taken some electives that have really intrigued me –

psychology, economics, and world religion.” His laid-back demeanor and Southern charm have helped him win over friends, fans, and faculty in the Christ School community. If you come to the Greenie Dome to see him play, you’ll hear the famous student cheering section screaming “Fulky, Fulky,” his CS nickname. Basketball is in his blood – both parents played at Division II schools – and he’s worked hard at it year round, including playing on an AAU team during the summers. Eric Thorp ’01, the interim varsity basketball coach last year, said, “I really feel that John’s best basketball is still ahead of him. Along with his length and athletic ability, his feel for the game and basketball IQ make him the player that he is. As he continues to gain confidence on the court and gets stronger, there’s no telling where his basketball career will take him.” John feels privileged. “Not a lot of people have the chance to play at the next level. I think it will be a really cool thing to do.” n

Now standing 5’11” and weighing 180 pounds, Morgan is proud of no longer being “that skinny, weak kid.” He’s tried many sports since arriving at CS, but has enjoyed particular success in swimming. His favorite class is AP Physics: “It’s really cool to be able to understand how things work mathematically.” In the summer of 2014, Morgan visited Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi and met 2007 CS graduate Eddie Miller, who attended the Air Force Academy and is now a flight instructor. They’ve stayed in touch, and Miller has offered advice as Morgan prepares for what he hopes will be an Air Force Academy appointment. Morgan is grateful for the many opportunities CS has provided, including travel. “I’ve been to Europe twice – London and Rome – and I’ll be going to Peru this year.” And now that he’s proven himself in the cockpit, he would like to try skydiving, “to figure out how valuable airplanes really are.” n

Morgan MacDonald ’17 stands beside the Christ School War Memorial.

MORGAN MACDONALD ’17

Morgan joined the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) more than four years ago to pursue an interest in flying, an activity that’s fascinated him since he was very young. “I think it was the appeal of doing something which should be impossible for humans,” he said. He attended his CAP squadron’s flight academy in 2015 and scored one of the highest grades in its six years of operation. After the ground-school portion, he was cleared to fly solo after only 17 hours of instruction. Morgan has come a long way from the 5’3”, 100-pound eighth-grader who arrived at Christ School. Boarding school was a big change: he’d been home-schooled since third grade. He knew he needed to focus on academics and leadership opportunities to set him up for a career as an Air Force pilot. A Headmaster Scholar, member of the National Honor Society, the recipient of two Citizenship Awards and the Fourth Form Prize last year, this honor roll student is well on his way to success.

CS 48 AS 20

On October 31st, the oldest High School football rivalry in the Carolinas continued, as Christ School and Asheville School met for the 89th time. Though the faces changes from year to year, the excitement behind “The Game” never does. This year was no different as droves of Christ School students, parents, faculty and alumni traveled across town to outnumber the Asheville School fans 5 to 1. Heading into the game Christ School had won 11 of the last 15 meetings, including the last four. Led by quarterback Drew Johnson ’17, the Greenies defeated the Blues 48-20. Johnson was 16-23 passing for 246 yards and two touchdowns, to Tyler Redmond ’17 and Jared Letman-Gash ’17. Though the air attack was plentiful, the ground game was even more spectacular as Kokayi Cobb ’17 ran for 106 yards, including three scores on 19 rushes. Johnson added a score and 49 yards of his own. Defensively, the Greenies were led by junior and All-State member Charlie Claffey ’17 who had a fumble forced, recovered as well as two pass deflections. Tyler Redmond ’17 and Keyvaun Cobb ’19 had an interception each as the Greenies kept the Blues out of the end zone when it counted most. The Greenies advanced to 8-2 on the season and retained the Fayssoux-Abrogast Trophy with the win. n

While they lost in the State Championship game, it was memorable season. Drew Johnson ’17 finished the season with 2717 yards passing. Charlie Claffey ’17 led our defense with 110 total tackles. Scott Ullstein ’16 was reliable and played tough all season long. Tyler Redmond ’17 was always willing to do his part to help the team be successful, catching 31 passes and making 77 tackles on defense.

Toughness and Dedication This year’s Cross Country team was tough and dedicated. They started training before classes began and plowed through brutal track workouts, 4-mile hill chases, distance runs at Bent Creek, and nine 5K races. Their hard work paid off with steady improvement for individuals and strong team performances. A highlight of the season was a 2nd place team finish at Veritas Invitational where 14 of the 26 guys ran personal best times. The group was led by an august pack of seniors including Tony Sun, Harris Smoots, Bing Li, Eric Leng, Will Keenan, Nick Smith, Thomas Clarity and Teddy Smith. The team also benefitted from the presence and speed of German ASSIST student Adrian Bossert ’17. Rounding out the group was a great posse of younger guys who are this team’s bright future. n

While they didn’t win States, they were proud to have earned a #4 seed in the State Tournament. “We played the toughest schedule we’ve ever had while I’ve been here,” said Coach Campbell. About his group of captains, Coach Campbell said “this is by far the most talented group of four guys I’ve ever coached here at CS and the majority of credit for our success this year has to be put on our captains.” Other seniors on this year were Liam McCann, Fabrice Dallies, and Lot Turner.

Next year’s team will have big shoes to fill but the Greenies will return eight starters from this year’s team as well as lots of young talented players. “Juniors like Will Iorio, Riley Smith, Wade Mouer, Thomas Hoefer, Nicky Anixter, James Wilde, and Jonah Roberts will bring a whole new attitude to our team’s leadership next year,” said Campbell.

ANGELUS SOCIETY DINNER

Each year Christ School celebrates its top donors at the annual Angelus Society Dinner held in their honor during Christ School - Asheville School Weekend. This year’s Angelus Dinner was celebrated on October 31, 2015 at Lionscrest on the Biltmore Estate. Headmaster Paul Krieger spoke to the audience of over 240 thanking them for their generous support and acknowledged several key donors. Specifically, Ron Brumley ’72 was recognized for his major funding toward the new Dining Hall currently under construction. The attendees were then addressed by Bertram L. Scott P’08, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, who shared that this year’s Angelus Dinner was the official launch of the public phase of Drawing


“Every once in a while in life we are afforded the opportunity to be part of something significant. Christ School’s Campaign, Drawing Strength from Within, is one such opportunity. One that will keep us strong, true and close to our mission.” ­ —Paul Krieger, Headmaster

Strength from Within — the Campaign for Christ School. During its silent phase, Christ School raised $13.4 million of its $20 million campaign goal. The campaign will raise funds for endowment, capital projects, and the annual fund. John Noland ’64 and Craig Wardlaw, Sr. ’62, were among the attendees and were given special recognition as Honorary Campaign Chairs. Headmaster Krieger stated, “Every once in a while in life we are afforded the opportunity to be part of something significant. Christ School’s Campaign, Drawing Strength from Within, is one such opportunity. One that will keep us strong, true and close to our mission.”

Drawing Strength from Within­— the Campaign for Christ School is a five-year campaign giving donors the opportunity to pay pledges over that period of time. Many lead gifts and named gifts have already been contributed, thus the total committed of $13.4 million at the time of Angelus.

The dimensions of the campaign include the need for endowment, capital projects, and the objective to protect and build the annual fund. The campaign enables us to pursue each of these areas for specific outcomes: • $ 9 million for Endowment • $ 8 million for Capital Projects •E  xpansion and Renovation of the Dining Hall •B  uilding a New Athletic Center •A  dditional Faculty Homes • $ 3 million in Annual Fund gifts Growing our endowment will enable us to improve our programs and provide additional scholarships to attract excellent students. Endowment gifts have the added benefit of freeing up other funds. Naming opportunities for the Endowment are available beginning at $100,000 for: •N  amed scholarships •D  esignated operational funds •F  ully or partially endowed teaching chairs The Dining Hall is fully funded with the exception of two classrooms and two faculty offices located on its lower level. The new facility will be nearly double in space and will feature: •S  eating for 328 – enough for all students and faculty •C  overed outdoor spaces • I ndoor and outdoor fireplace •S  eparate enclosed private dining room •T  hree classrooms and three faculty offices on


the lower level A strong athletic program is important to boys – and doing things well is important to Christ School. A new athletic center will provide our teams practice areas during inclement weather and will emphasize physical fitness. Naming opportunities are available for the proposed facility. Three new faculty homes have been fully funded at $300,000 each and naming opportunities are still available for additional faculty homes. Having faculty living on campus strengthens the community and the education we offer. Tuition covers only about 80% of Christ School’s operating budget. Undesignated donations to the Annual Loyalty Fund provide us with flexibility to meet our areas of greatest need, such as competitive faculty salaries, student scholarships, maintenance of facilities and grounds, and day to day operating costs. Multiyear pledges to the Annual Loyalty Fund are important to the vitality of the School and to the campaign’s success. Christ School’s Campaign Leadership Committee is led by Steve Young, a 1982 alumnus from Atlanta, GA who is also a member of the Board of Trustees and a lead donor. When asked about the need for the campaign, Young responded, “The School has come so far, but to take it to the next level it is imperative to have a campaign. We don’t have the resources some schools have, so when we need to move

the needle – whether in endowment, buildings, programs or a host of other enhancements – we need to raise the monies to do so.” Young further stated “I strongly believe that Christ School stewards the monies we have received over the years in a good, honest and trustworthy fashion, and we will continue to do so.” In preparing for the campaign, Christ School developed a master plan and conducted a self-study to determine needs, the readiness of constituencies to support a campaign and the likelihood of reaching a specific goal. After extensive research and interviews, the Board of Trustees elected to launch a $20 million campaign to transform the Christ School campus and expands its endowment to ensure a vibrant future for this important educational institution.

Announcing New President of the Board of Trustees, Bert Scott P’08

beyond the gate house FROM THE ADVANCEMENT OFFICE

Educating men of good character, preparing them for scholastic achievement, and developing them into productive citizens is our mission at Christ School. To do this well, Christ School relies on leadership to set examples in governance, commitment, and maximizing one’s potential, and it starts with our Board of Trustees. New Board president, Bertram L. Scott P’08, personifies each characteristic of our mission. Newly elected president in May 2015, Scott has long been identified as a leader. He has a wealth of senior leadership experience having served as senior vice president of Population Health and Value Based Care at Novant Health and as president, CEO and director of the Affinity Health Plan from 2012 to 2014. He was president, U.S. Commercial of CIGNA Corporation and served as executive vice president of TIAA-CREF for ten years and as president and CEO of TIAA-CREF Life Insurance Company from 2000-2007. Scott currently serves on the boards of Becton, Dickinson and Company, AXA Financial, and Lowe’s Companies, Inc. As the Board of Trustees President at Christ

School, Bert Scott takes seriously his role in leading the School’s mission and maintaining the debt-free status of the financials. During the Angelus Dinner on October 31, 2015, he announced the public phase of Drawing Strength from Within: the Campaign for Christ School. A lead donor himself, he encouraged others to join in support of the School’s campaign to raise funds for endowment, capital projects and the Annual Loyalty Fund. Previously featured in Galax as a planned gift donor, Scott has generously donated a life insurance policy to Christ School. He stated that he was excited to give back to Christ School because of the difference it made in the man his son Sean Scott ’08 has become. When Nat Hyde ’74 passed the baton of Board President over to Scott, Hyde stated, “It is exciting to know that there is no one better qualified or suited for this position than Bert Scott. After six years of serving as the Board President, it might have been difficult for me to step down. However, with Bert as Board President, I confidently know that Christ School will be in great hands and that the excellent leadership of the Board will continue.” n

Kathy Belk Named New Annual Fund Director Although no stranger to the Advancement Office (she has been working in various capacities since 2002), Kathy Belk took over as the Director of the Annual Fund in July. Director of External Affairs Denis Stokes felt it was a natural move for Kathy, building on the many relationships she has made with alumni over the past 13 years. In her new role, she is responsible for reaching out to all constituents of our school—parents, grandparents, alumni, and faculty—and ensuring that this vital

fund continues to provide funding toward the operations of the school not covered by tuition. Belk is excited about the opportunity to find new ways to engage people and get them even more interested in supporting the school. She points out that this is an especially challenging year for the ALF, considering the newly announced campaign, but she is up for the challenge and already receiving positive feedback. n

“It seemed like the right thing to do.” December 2015 Alumni, Parents, and Friends—

beyond the gate house FROM THE ADVANCEMENT OFFICE

Christ School closes its 2014-15 fiscal year with a clean audit and with success in reaching its financial goals by way of healthy enrollment and thanks to the generous and loyal support of our alumni, parents and friends. Highlights of the giving year include: •W  e thank a total of almost 900 donors, a number on par with previous years, and this at a time when the “competition” for retaining philanthropic support is keen; •A  n annual fund equaling $742,000 (up from some $475,000 only five-years ago), contributing an amount to the operational budget that would require an additional $15-million in endowment to accomplish; •A  healthy annual fund that allowed for a modest endowment draw, which means that our investments compound at a higher rate than if we were in need of the entire endowment draw; •A  nnounced the kickoff of Drawing Strength from Within – the Campaign for Christ School – a $20-million initiative, which includes adding $9-million to the endowment; $8-million in capital projects, including a new dining hall (to be completed May 2016), a new athletic center (groundbreaking within the next 12-months), three new faculty homes; and sustaining and building the annual fund for an additional $3-million; • I n announcing the campaign, we also announced a total of $13.4-million already committed toward the goal of $20-million. Reaching the goal is the objective; exceeding the goal is the aim. In a recent visit with an alumnus and his wife – a couple who have given monthly to Christ School for more than 27-consecutive years, I asked “why the incredible loyalty?” In reply, our alumnus simply stated “It seemed like the right thing to do.” My experience shows that many join this alumnus in giving to Christ School for the same reason. In turn, Christ School remains steadfast to its core defined by its four-fold philosophy, developing body, mind, and spirit, with an appreciation for work. And yet, the foundation of it all comes down to not only teaching young men to do what is right but, more importantly, teaching young men to be able to discern what is right. When you support Christ School, you strengthen the continuance of this 116-year-tradition of forming young men as complete and balanced men. Thank you for your confidence in our work and for your generosity. Sincerely,

Denis M. Stokes P’12 Director of External Affairs

37% Salaries

21% Financial Aid/Scholarships

Revenue Notes – 1.) For fiscal year 2014-15, fundraising revenue is more than typical on account of the school being in the silent phase of a capital campaign. In a typical year, fundraising accounts for approximately 10% of annual revenue. 2.) Investment income, too, is slightly greater than in a typical year; this is on account of a healthy annual fund, which allows for modest endowment draws, hence greater compounding of investment growth. Expenses Note – 1.) When the school receives financial support, approximately 47-cents of every dollar support salaries and benefits and 22-cents of every dollar supports financial aid and scholarships.

The fiftieth year celebration of the undefeated, untied 1965 football season

68

class notes

On a cold November afternoon back in 1965 the Christ School football team beat Asheville School 21-18 to remain undefeated and untied. Larry Miller ’66 sealed the victory with an interception with 23 seconds left. As Yorke Pharr ’66 remembered “Joy was everywhere on the Christ School sideline. The Angelus bell was ringing, campus dogs barking, hugs, tears, and athletic tension ebbing away when the season-long goal and 50-year dream had been delivered for so many in a perfect and dramatic finish.” On Friday before the Big Game this year, Yorke and Wyndham Manning ’66 invited the members of the class of ’66 and everyone from ’64 to ’68 to join them at Wyndham and Bunny’s lovely cabin at Summit Landing. The accompanying photos attest to the joy of that occasion. Former faculty Doc Fortney, Croom Beatty, and Jean Hess, Coach Hess’s widow, joined in the fun as well.

On Saturday the aforementioned crowd assumed a place of honor at the head of the cordon through which the football team drove to Asheville School for the game. As has become customary recently, the Greenies won the game 48-20 to add an exclamation point to a wonderful weekend full of memories. As the imitable John Hine ’67 said during the weekend, “The older we get, the better we were!” Well, you never can get any better than undefeated and untied! Thanks to the ’65 football team and Go Greenies! n

Marshall Plumlee ’11 Army ROTC This past summer Marshall Plumlee ’11 attended a 28-day Cadet Leadership Course at Fort Knox, KY, as part of his decision to join the military via ROTC. Cadet Plumlee stands seven feet tall and wears size 17 shoes, but his height is not the only aspect that separates him from most of his fellow cadets. A center for Duke University’s basketball team which won the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, Plumlee enlisted with the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps last spring. “It’s been a great experience,” he said about the summer basic training course. “It has made me a better person. I feel like a lot of things I’ve learned on the court translate to what I do out here with ROTC.” After Cadet Summer Training, he went straight into practice with coach Mike Krzyzewski, a West Point graduate and former basketball coach. n

Doc Emerson ’41 and Jane White were married during his senior year at Georgia Tech in 1948. Jane predeceased him in 2007. Together they raised three lovely children, John, of Clarksburg, WV, Anne of Boulder, CO, and David of Oak Ridge, TN. The grandchildren are Marion and Hunter Emerson of Clarksburg, WV, Peter Stetina of Santa Rosa, CA, Claire Stetina of San Francisco, CA, and Kathleen Stetina of Boulder, CO. Doc enlisted in the army at age 17 and served with the 397th Regimental Infantry Combat Team of the 100th Infantry Division during WWII in the United States, France, and Germany from 1943 to 1946. His awards included the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Presidential Unit Citation, the Bronze Star with one Oak Leaf Cluster, and battle stars for the Ardennes-Alsace, Central European, and Rhineland campaigns, and the Republique Francaise’s Legion of Honor. Following three years of military service he entered Georgia Tech, where he earned a B.S. in electrical engineering in 1949. Following graduation, he was awarded a fellowship in radiological physics at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) from the National Research Council, then an equivalent M.S. from the Oak Ridge of reactor technology, following which he earned a Ph.D. in physics and mathematics from the University of Tennessee. He sends this report to us from his home in Oak Ridge, TN.

Andrew Hamilton ’53 writes: “I thoroughly enjoyed your Galax cover article about my classmates Pepe Stuntz and Chip Hartenstein, but I thought you should know that I was, as far as I know, the first resident Cuban in the class of 1953. When I arrived at the beginning of the third form in 1949 my family lived in Havana, where for two years prior I attended Ruston Academy in Vedado, a closein suburb of Old Havana near the Malecon (the boulevard along the sea). (Jose’s family were then living in Venezuela, I believe.) Your cover picture of El Morro castle brought back a familiar sight. I too found Coco Glace served in half a coconut shell a wonderful treat. There was a Coco Glace trailer, as I recall, situated near the bridge over the Almendares River between Havana and Miramar (Sea View), where we first lived. Later we moved to Marianao, and my brother David and I took fencing lessons at the nearby military base Campo Columbia. I took the streetcar to school and learned to hop aboard before it came to a stop. Then the conductor would ring the bell twice and shout “Dale” (pronounced Dal-le) to the motorman and the trolley would pick up speed. Daniel Santos of La Sonora Matancera had a song about the trolley strike of 1948 (el seis por ocho – six hours work for eight hours pay) and the anger Habaneros felt, “Dale motorista or te pierde trabajo” (Speed up motorman or you’ll lose your job). In 1950-51 my brother David, also a Cuban, entered the second form. He discovered that he could get into the crawl space above the Brat Dorm rooms by standing on a chair and pushing up a ceiling tile. Pretty soon all the boys in the first and second forms were crawling around over the ceilings after lights out to visit friends. It all came to an end when one boy put his foot through the ceiling of the master’s bedroom. Everyone said my brother was the instigator, so the student council gave him the ultimate punishment short of expulsion, the Three Cs, Campus, Crumb and Claim. He could not leave campus, he had to serve any table he was assigned to for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and Mr. Dave gave him Claim. It was a large stump in the woods behind the Brat and 38 Dorms, and he had to dig it out, roots and all, with a


pickaxe and shovel. It took him weeks! Mr. Dave took a certain pleasure in matching boys and any claims they had earned, I think, but I also think he secretly admired my brother for his daring. Had he stayed at Christ School, there was a good chance that Mr. Dave would have chosen him as a prefect. My brother Lewis Wardlaw (Ward) Hamilton graduated from Christ School in 1959. He also lived in Havana while my family was there from 1947 to 1950, a particularly innocent time in Cuban history. We were there because my father was Cultural Attache in the U.S. Embassy. My family later lived, and my brothers went to school in Paris and Brussels. Ward came to Christ School from the American Community School in Paris. My family moved from Havana to Washington D.C. in June 1950 with a break at our summer home near Brevard, NC, not too far from Arden. I left Christ School to take a train from Biltmore to Charleston and the East Coast Champion to Miami, where I flew in a DC-3 to Havana. My family then embarked on a freighter for a week-long voyage to New York, where we saw Kiss Me Kate from front-row balcony seats as guests of playwrights Sam and Bella Spewack. My father bought a unique car, a Studebaker chasis and engine onto which an entirely wooden custom station wagon body was built. We had to go to carriage makers – there were still a few – to have body work done. Then we took a leisurely drive down the East Coast and Blue Ridge Parkway to Brevard where I ended up 28 miles from where I began. That trip took about four weeks. I had Captain Reid as a Latin teacher. He was famous for his put-downs when students performed badly. “Hamilton,” he would say, “if your brains were dynamite you couldn’t blow your nose. You couldn’t track an elephant through six feet of snow. Har, Har, Har.” Lower formers dreaded having to crumb Capt. Reid’s table because after he had demonstrated, with the help of mashed potatoes and peas, how Napoleon smashed the armies of Russia and Austria at the battle of Austerlitz, the table was quite greasy and hard to get clean enough to pass inspection. I took a break from Christ School in my fifth form year to work in the U.S. Senate for

Burnett Maybank, a Democratic Senator from South Carolina from January to August, and attended Capital Pages School. We met from 6:30 to 10:30 a.m. on an upper floor in the Library of Congress. Thanks to Capt. Reid I was advanced enough in Latin to take Caesar. The class met over coffee and donuts in the Library of Congress cafeteria at 8 a.m.”

Edmund H. Hardy ’57, P ’99 writes: “After gradating from Christ School in 1957 I enrolled in the University of South Carolina. I majored in banking and finance and graduated in 1961. I joined Kappa Alpha Order while at Carolina. While there I also met my wife to be, Rhett McLeod. We got married in 1962. In 1961 I went to work in my family insurance agency, Hardy Insurance Agency. I merged our agency into Adams and Eaddy Agency in 1985. I am currently employed there. Rhett and I have two children. Rhett Newton lives in Winston-Salem; her husband, Bro, is a vascular surgeon. They have two children, Will (16) (whom I’m dying to send to Christ School, but his mother won’t let him go) and Helen (10). They both attend Forsythe Country Day. Our son Heyward attended Christ School for two years

We have been members of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Columbia since 1962, where I served on the Vestry several times, was junior and senior warden. I served on the Christ School Board for 10 years and was president of the Alumni Association. I have been a Rotarian for 35 years and was a founding member of the East Columbia Rotary Club. I was the second president of this club.”

by Kamloops. You travel by train in the day-time, and stay in hotels at night. We recommend it! Christ School has been a decisive factor throughout. At Christ School we learned hard study and hard work, to write well, to take responsibility, to follow direction, and own up to the consequences of not doing so (read: work lists), to make a commitment to Christ and to the church, and (not the least!) to crumb a table competently and keep our rooms clean. Go, Greenies!”

Alexander (Sandy) Rogers ’59 writes: “Christ School was a decisive influence in my life. After graduating (Rah, Rah, Class of ’59!), I attended Pomona College in California, earning a B.A. in physics in 1963, then to N.C. State for an MS in physics in 1965. I worked my entire (first) career in the Navy laboratories, mostly at the Naval Air Warfare Center at China Lake, CA, with a year in the Pentagon and five years at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. At the time I retired in 2002 I was in the Navy Senior Executive Service as director of Navy Pacific Test Ranges. After retiring I went back to school to satisfy a long-term interest in archaeology, earning an M.A. in archaeological anthropology in 2004. Now, in retirement, I am in a second career as a consulting archaeologist and museum curator. My wife, Frances, and I met while I was at NC State and she was at UNC-Greensboro. We met through our campus Canterbury Clubs, the Episcopal youth organization. We were married in 1965, recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary, and are still active in the Anglican church. We have three sons, all with careers in scientific fields, and eight grandchildren. To celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, which was last January, we took a luxury rail cruise through the Canadian Rockies on the Rocky Mountaineer.

When he’s not managing his landscaping business – The Greenery – Lee Edwards ’86 is spending time with family, out sailing, serving on Hilton Head’s Town Council, and serving on the Board of Hilton Head Prep. Lee writes: “my senior year, I went on an interim sailing trip to the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, led by Mr. Hutson. We rented two 38-foot sailboats and stuffed seven students and a teacher on each boat. We sailed out of Marsh Harbor and island hopped around the Abacos for a week. At that time I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever done and it began a lifelong fascination with sailing. Since then I have traveled, raced, lived aboard, worked on, and owned a number of sailboats.

This past May I sailed my latest boat, a 60-foot gaff rigged schooner, from Hilton Head to the Abacos with a few close friends. After the guys left, my wife and three daughters came down and joined me. We retraced my steps in some of those same places I went back in the spring of ’86: Marsh Harbor, Hopetown, Great Guana, Green Turtle Cay, and many days of sailing in the Sea of Abaco. After two weeks of island hopping in the Abacos we sailed back to Hilton Head in a two-day passage riding the Gulfstream most of the way. What an amazing way to spend a few weeks with family and friends!

Ryan Volatile ’09 writes: “I have been living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for two years now and am currently working as a financial research analyst at Crisil, a global research and analytics company. Before I was teaching English throughout the city, but decided to pursue something in my field of study (business administration). More interestingly, I have been coaching and playing on a club lacrosse team here in the city, which has helped me make many contacts. Because of this, and my status as a resident of Argentina, I was invited to play with the Argentine National Lacrosse Team in The American Cup in Mexico City. We competed against Colombia, Mexico, and Chile and finished third in the tournament. And on top of all that, the guys elected me to be one of the three team captains. It was an honor to play and to lead them, and was something I never expected. I would like to spread the word about lacrosse in Argentina throughout the alumni network. Lacrosse is growing quickly down here, but we could use all the help we can get. Everything we use has to be imported which is both expensive and tricky, given the country’s current strict import laws. This is one of the most fun teams I have ever been a part of, and they deserve all the help they can get.”
