Every Single Student, Every Single Day Dear GSA Community: We share this Celebration of Giving to acknowledge everyone who enables George Stevens Academy to be the school we want to be for our students, the top-quality educational institution they deserve. Your gifts support ALL of our programs, thus they touch every single student, every single day. Without all of you, GSA would be a different Head of School Tim Seeley school, a lesser school for all of them. You may have heard that, through the generosity of many and as the result of a great partnership with community members, we have welcomed to campus three students who are refugees from difficult and dangerous circumstances in their home countries. Joining our boarding program this year are a boy from Afghanistan and two from Ukraine. Having them here is a great experience for them and a wonderful thing for their peers in the student body. They join a slowly rebuilding boarding program, which, as I write this, includes fourteen students from eight different countries. The school year is off to a strong start, and it is so nice to have no special policies, procedures, or protocols related to the pandemic. We are gathering as a community again, and we look forward to continuing to engage our students with the experiences—and fostering in them the values—that make GSA a special place. Thank you for your continued support of the peninsula’s high school. Timothy J. Seeley Head of School

Our Mission George Stevens Academy is a town academy on the coast of Maine. Founded in 1852, we are the high school for nearly all students from the seven towns in our rural community. We also enroll private-pay day and boarding students from around the world. Our students’ interests, talents, and aspirations reflect the diversity of the communities from which they come. GSA provides a comprehensive and challenging education for all students, for those who will build futures in surrounding communities and for those who will make lives elsewhere in the world. Our many academic and experiential programs foster a love of knowledge, inspire creativity, instill self-confidence, encourage good character, and prepare each graduate for a purposeful life in a changing world. Our mission was approved by the GSA Board of Trustees on April 25, 2019.

Welcome, and Welcome Back!

Teacher and advisor Emma Baker leads 10th-graders in tarp ball, an orientation exercise designed to boost communication, problem-solving, and collaboration skills .

In August, musicians and athletes were the first back at George Stevens Academy as they prepared for the honors jazz combo performance at the Blue Hill Fair and fall sports. They were soon followed by new boarding students arriving for orientation. At the turn of the month, everyone came to campus to prepare for the traditional start of classes after Labor Day. And just like that, the 2022-23 school year was off to a great start. Most of our more than 300 students are from Hancock County (Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Castine, Hancock, Orland, Otis, Penobscot, Sedgwick, and Surry), but our boarding program is a welcoming home to students from towns in the U.S. and seven other countries (Afghanistan, Austria, China, France, Mexico, Spain, and Ukraine). Whether our students are from up the street, across the country, or the other side of the world, we are grateful for the unique perspectives they bring to GSA and the larger community. Together, we make GSA a truly vibrant learning community! 4

Hello, New Faculty & Staff

At George Stevens Academy, we provide our students a comprehensive and challenging education to prepare them for their futures, whether they remain on the Blue Hill Peninsula or make their lives elsewhere in the world. The value of a GSA education comes from • our comprehensive and engaging academic and experiential classes, from foundations level to AP and Honors; • extraordinary learning support provided in our Ninth-Grade Seminar class, Library, Learning Center, and RISE program; • our arts, athletics, and other extracurricular programs, where students discover their creativity, learn to be part of a team, and explore new interests; • the many ways we care for our students’ well-being, including our unique advisory program, which fosters self-reflection and character development; • and the community connections created when our students perform in an ensemble or cast, play on a team, interact with experts in the classroom or on field trips, or participate in our signature Independent Study and Internship Program. But none of our success in educating generations of GSA students would be possible without a dedicated, hardworking, and caring faculty and staff. Thank you to ALL for their continued support of our students, our mission, and our vision. Late last year and this summer, those listed below have joined our team or taken on new roles.

Edible Landscape Project Empowers Students

In winter 2022, Steve Whitney and his Exploring Earth Systems classes began a multiyear edible landscape project behind GSA’s Hinckley House dormitory on Tenney Hill to improve the biodiversity of the area. “It’s been forested several times,” Steve said. “It’s pretty quiet when you walk through. You’re not seeing the variety of animals that would normally be in our forest.” Steve and his students were helped by Blue Hill Heritage Trust Development Director Chrissy Allen ’98, and Kathy Pollard and Ann Pollard-Ranco of Know Your Land Consulting, a mother-daughter team that specializes in restorative ecology. Together, they mapped the area, researched native plants, and prepared a project proposal to submit to BHHT with a grant request. After generous BHHT donors agreed to support the project, Steve’s classes put into action their plan to provide food and shelter for native animals, including pollinators, like butterflies and bees, which are critical to the food system. By the end of the semester, they had weeded an existing garden bed, installed fencing, propagated grape vines, and planted raspberry canes, pear trees, cherry trees, and other plants to attract pollinators and other wildlife. “Kids hear about all these terrible environmental problems,” Steve said, “like habitat degradation and climate change, and they feel helpless, but here’s a project where they can actually be involved, plan, and take action.” This fall, Steve’s new classes took over the project. “I am excited,” Steve said, “to see the continued growth and to build upon the hard work of last year’s group. We also want people from the community to see it and enjoy it and think about their role in the natural landscape.” The site is located behind the Hinckley House dormitory and alongside the Murphy Trail, an accessible trail built by BHHT in 2020.

Welding Courses Meet Interest, Need When Corey Esposito ’87 was a GSA student, metals class teacher Scott Shepard taught him to stick weld. After Corey finished making an anchor, his teacher thought it looked good. “At that point, I thought ‘Wow,’ “ Corey said, “welding may be something I’d like to do.” So Corey pursued his interest in Independent Study his junior and senior years, and he eventually began welding professionally at L.S. Thorsen in Ellsworth. In 2001, Corey opened Esposito’s Welding and Fabrication in Surry, a business he still runs today. Though Corey’s love of welding began early, “I fell in love with teaching,” he said, as a long-term substitute at the Hancock County Technical Center in 2015. When GSA needed a new Industrial Tech teacher, Corey was quick to apply. “Teaching at GSA is a dream come true. Not only am I getting to teach, but I’m doing it where I discovered my passion.” And that passion, it seems, is catching. “Last year, almost every kid that came in [the shop] asked ‘Can we try welding?’,” he said. Corey already had the equipment needed thanks to prior gifts from Airgas and Hypertherm (READ MORE), so the teacher made his students an offer. “If we accomplish what we need to, and there’s time at the end of the course, you can have a few days to try welding.” Interest in welding continued to grow, so Corey proposed a sequence of welding courses to the Curriculum Committee. The sequence began this fall with full enrollments. With these new courses, Corey said, “every GSA student has the opportunity to try welding, and they only have to commit to half a year. A lot of kids just want to learn how to weld to fix their own stuff, and a lot of students just think it’s neat.” Corey expects others will embrace welding as an artistic medium. Students who’d like to help meet the growing demand for professional welders can take all four classes and earn certificates. Corey has already heard from area businesses that would like to host GSA students for their Independent Study and Internship Program projects. Regardless of why they choose to take the new courses, Corey is excited to have more students interested in welding. “It’s so fulfilling when you’re in the welding booth with a student and they run their first really pretty bead, just to see the excitement and enthusiasm.”

We are grateful to Airgas in Bangor and account manager Ted Harris for their generous support of GSA’s welding program. Airgas recently provided two more stick/tig welders and a large, industrial mig welder with a spool gun ($8,300 combined value). Right, Welding I students with the new mig welder.

Relationship with Towns is Mutually Beneficial Dear GSA Community:

I am honored to begin my third year of service as the chair of the GSA Board of Trustees. The board has been busy this summer, not least in drafting the 2022-2023 budget with input from the Budget Review Committee, a newly-formed structure with a representative from each sending town.

Board Chair Sally Mills ’85

GSA and its communities have always had a symbiotic relationship: GSA families live and work in the towns that, in turn, support the school through tuition. It is gratifying that this past spring, all sending towns again voted to approve our request for supplemental tuition. I can’t say enough about how much we appreciate this support and commitment. With this investment, we are able to tackle much-needed deferred maintenance projects, as well as continue to provide the imaginative curriculum that has served multiple generations of graduates. Until and unless the state opts to significantly increase its base tuition rate, our need for supplemental tuition will remain. Even with this supplemental tuition, there remains a significant gap between the amount of tuition received, which is capped by the state, and the actual costs of educating our students. It remains GSA’s job to make up the difference by maximizing other sources of revenue, including philanthropy, enrollment (both local and boarding), the endowment, and creative uses of our campus during the summer months. As my younger son enters his senior year and I compare my experience to his, I am struck by the consistency of education we received at GSA. Robbie is even following in his mother’s footsteps and performing in a play! I am also grateful that he has been exposed to an even greater range of experiences than I was back in the day, not least the friendships he has made with boarding students from all over the world. GSA has served me and my family so well. On a personal note, and on behalf of the whole board, I thank you, the community, for your support.

Sally Mills ’85

1898 Society Celebrates Giving,

Music Program

Noel Stookey, right, joins Phelan Gallagher ’02, Jillian Eldridge ’23, and Austin Chandler ’23 (back) of Tasty Bites. In July, members of the 1898 Society celebrated leadership giving to George Stevens Academy. The 1898 Society brings together alumni, parents, and friends who support virtually every aspect of academic and student life with gifts of $1,000 or more to GSA in a fiscal year. Last year, leadership giving totaled more than $500,000. The reception also celebrated the first year on the job for GSA’s new music director, Phelan Gallagher ’02, a year in which he led GSA into the world of music production thanks to a generous gift from Noel Stookey. When the prospect of live concerts looked dim last fall, Phelan spoke with Head of School Tim Seeley about setting up a recording studio in the band room. “Tim was enthusiastic,” Phelan said, “and a few weeks later, I got an email proposing that we meet with Noel Stookey,” who had some equipment he no longer needed. “I was eager to see what Noel had in store for us, but I could never have expected that he would donate thousands of dollars’ worth of vintage mics, mixers, and recording gear.” After the decision was made to host a virtual winter concert, that equipment came to good use very soon. With help from Ed Conte ’19 and Quinn Stabler ’20, two GSA alumni studying music production at Husson University, “we were able to produce high quality recordings of our concert band, jazz band, jazz combos, and even, thanks to Martin Conte’s help, the pan program as well,” Phelan said. The videos have been viewed nearly 2,000 times. “Particularly heartwarming,” Phelan said, “were messages from grandparents and family far away expressing gratitude that they had been able to tune in online where they would not have been able to attend an in-person performance.” In late winter, the music studio was in use again for Independent Study & Internship Program projects, and then to record for the National Jazz Festival. The studio will get even more use this year with the addition of Music Production to GSA’s course catalog. “Music Production aims to engage more students in the GSA music program while incorporating the 21st century production skills becoming essential in the field,” Phelan said. “Students will delve deeper into the world of making beats, composing original music, microphone technique, and overdubbing and layering their performances. It will certainly be a music program of the future.”

Deborah Brewster Memorial Scholarship Awarded At Class Night in June, Maeve McLaughlin '22 was honored as the first recipient of the Deborah Brewster Memorial Scholarship. Following Deborah's passing in 2021, her family established this scholarship in tribute to Deborah's decades-long legacy of service to her community. During her four years at GSA, Maeve was a campus and community leader on LGBTQ issues, particularly focusing on advocacy and increasing awareness related to identity and visibility. Her senior year, Maeve made a presentation about the importance of language and identity, and their impact on students, at an employee meeting. Her work was applauded and greatly appreciated by the community, and she went on to present to educators at local elementary schools. During Maeve’s time at GSA, she inspired adults and peers alike, and her impact on the community still resonates. Maeve is attending Wheaton College in Massachusetts where she is majoring in gender, sexuality, and women's studies.

Board Welcomes Four, Bids Four Farewell

The Committee on Trustees is pleased to announce four new members of the Board of Trustees as we acknowledge the service of four who are leaving the board. Terry Moulton, a valuable member of the Finance Committee for the past four years, has joined the board and taken over leadership of the Finance Committee as Jim Crawford’s term has expired. We are truly sad to lose Jim, whose wise guidance and strategic thinking have been invaluable, but also grateful that we can turn to Terry, who worked hand in hand with Jim and whose understanding of the fine details of budgeting is crucial for GSA. Terry’s background is in finance: Morgan Guaranty Trust and Airline Capital Associates. He was on the board of the Bay School and recently headed Blue Hill Heritage Trust; thus he brings both financial acumen and an understanding of education and of the Blue Hill Peninsula with him. In addition to Terry, Rachel Grivois, a CPA with Accounting Services of Maine, has also joined the board and brings her accounting knowledge to our budgeting process. We have said goodbye to Deb Ludlow, who completed her second nine-year term on the board (that is 18 years!!!). Deb brought her understanding of the school as a parent and alum to every meeting. She chaired the Development Committee and, for the past two years, was the vice-chair of the board. Her wisdom will be sorely missed. However, we are lucky to have added a new parent to the board, Amy Baker, whose daughter Molly Pile is in the 10th grade. Amy and her daughter (and husband) are such fans of GSA that they moved from San Francisco to Blue Hill so that Molly can attend. In San Francisco, Amy served on the board of the San Francisco Friends School. Earlier this year, Amy joined the Development Committee at GSA and has accepted the invitation to chair it. We are grateful that she accepted this leadership position. Mike McMillen, whose term has also ended, has done a tremendous amount of work and strategic thinking about the condition of facilities at the school. He has brought in experts in many fields to help us plan for the future. We are grateful for all he has done. Sally Chadbourne has taken on a major role at Maine Maritime Academy, necessitating her leaving the board. She had headed our Advancement Committee and was a valuable member of the Committee on Trustees as well as the Boarding Committee. Her thoughtful, hard work will be missed enormously. We are delighted that Sue Loomis is returning to the GSA Board of Trustees after recently retiring from Maine Maritime Academy. At Maine Maritime, she was professor of humanities and communications, academic dean and dean of faculty, and earlier chair of the Arts and Sciences Department. Sue was a trustee at GSA from 2004-2013, and we are so very glad that she has chosen to return to GSA. Sincerely,

Mary Tyler Knowles Chair of the Committee on Trustees 24

George Stevens Academy is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees, each of whom is dedicated to supporting the academy, its mission, and its vision. We share below a list of our current trustees as well as the memberships of three selected committees. Our volunteer trustees and committee members make a difference in the lives of our students, the well-being of the school, and the future of the Blue Hill Peninsula.

Golf Tournament Boosts GSA Fund

In early September, 75 golfers came out swinging at the Blue Hill Country Club to show their support for GSA and to have a good time. As a result, the 2022 Duane B. Gray ’64 Memorial Golf Tournament at the Blue Hill Country Club raised more than $17,000 for the GSA Fund, which helps pay for programming of all kinds at the academy, and much more. We are grateful to the golfers (below) and to our generous sponsors (next page) for helping us set a new tournament record! Many thanks also to the Golf Committee and other volunteers who organized the tournament and helped make it so much fun!
