TH

BIRTHDAY

Dear Gunston Community: My first year as Headmaster coincided with our 100th as an institution, and it was a year of great celebration on our campus. Generations of alumni and friends made the journey back to Centreville, renewing old connections and friendships, and rekindling their love for Gunston. Although we bade farewell to the irreplaceable Everdells in June (at the single largest alumni gathering in school history), their moral imprint on the school will endure. We look forward to keeping them closely connected to Gunston, and we will always seek to rise to their uncompromisingly student-centered legacy. As you can see throughout this publication, we begin our second century as The Gunston School—a name change that has been greeted with universal cheer, and we are committed to keeping all of our alumni strongly connected to the school. On a personal note, Laurie and I were pleased to welcome our second daughter—Millie Eliza Lewis—into the world just a few days after graduation. As a family, we have fallen in love with Gunston and its community, and we look forward to deepening our connections with the entire Gunston family as the years progress. Finally, thank you to everyone who has supported the school this year. As a small school, we rely upon the collective loyalty and dedication of every member of our community to help us grow and thrive as we embark upon our second century. As you will see throughout these pages, the school is thriving and our future is bright! Warmly, John

Dear Alumni, Parents, & Friends, It was so wonderful to be part of the Gunston community during this year-long celebration of its Centennial. Alumni shared their fond memories with pride, telling stories that have now become part of our history. The nostalgia was enlightening for current Gunston families such as mine and added to the appreciation we already have for the school’s unique history. The seeds have been planted for today’s students to make their time here equally unique and memorable. I am proud and excited to be Gunston’s Parent Association President during this first year of Gunston’s second century of existence. I encourage each of you to stay involved with Gunston. Please volunteer for the many events that will take place this year. (And follow us on Facebook and through our website.) Join us as we work to make this second century as exciting and fulfilling as the first one. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Gunston Goes Green Gunston earned official certification as a Maryland Green School through the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE). Throughout the school year, members of the

Environmental Club, under the direction of President Alisa Nye ‘11, completed an intensive application process which required the school to demonstrate its commitment to environmental education, its investment in green campus practices, and the integration of its programs in the greater community. Throughout our 100-year history, Gunston has been dedicated to environ-

mental sustainability and education. The Chesapeake Bay Studies program, begun in 1991, engages students and faculty in exploration of the watershed focusing on habitats, history, culture, industry, development, and the future of the region. Environmental education is woven into the core curriculum in Biology, AP Environmental Science, and Ethics with new

courses in development for 2012-2013. This past year, the Environmental Club partnered with Kennard Elementary School in Centreville and implemented water quality studies for local elementary students. Together the group monitored the quality of the Corsica River throughout the school year, conducted investigations of river species, and managed

the school’s oyster cages, which are part of the Maryland Grows Oysters Project locally sponsored by the Corsica River Conservancy. The Gunston Earth Day Program provides all students and faculty members instruction in environmental issues and best management practices. Guest presenters from organizations and agencies throughout the Chesapeake region provide interactive instruction on topics including oyster growing, orni-

thology, bee keeping, organic farming, and green architecture. Hands-on activities, which are part of the program annually, result in campus improvements including the installation of bird houses and native flower gardens, ravine restoration, and the removal of invasive species. Community outreach, an important feature of the program, includes trash removal from roads near campus and from the school’s assigned section of Hope Road in Centreville through the State Highway Administration’s Adopt-a-Road initiative. Facilities improvements have included the replacement of incandescent bulbs with CFL’s and the installation of timed light switches. New, energy efficient HVAC

equipment is being installed in all buildings along with programmable thermostats. Gunston has implemented effective and comprehensive recycling and composting programs. In the dining room, all Styrofoam products have been replaced with compostable materials and silverware has replaced plastic utensils. We hope that with support from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, a significant campus improvement will be the installation of a living shoreline to preserve and enhance

the school’s waterfront. Gunston enjoys positive partnership with the Corsica River Conservancy, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Echo Hill Outdoor School, Sultana, Outward Bound, and numerous other local and regional environmental agencies. Gunston students and staff members volunteer in the local community supporting environmental programs and Gunston welcomes being a site for the

community to engage in outreach and education. Recognition as a Maryland Green School honors the Gunston community for efforts in environmental education and sustainability and challenges the school to expand instructional offerings, best management practices, and community involvement. Gunston’s green campus initiatives will remain an important focal point as the school moves into its second century.


Living Shoreline Anyone who has observed the Gunston shoreline over the years might comment on the incredible toll that Chesapeake Bay shoreline erosion has taken on our waterfront. Most recent alums may not realize that the floor of the current boathouse was sand as few as just ten years ago! Current sailors and rowers comment that the boathouse’s wooden floor sits nearly two feet above the lapping high tide, as the sand under the building migrates across our beach. Gunston’s ties to the water are strong and we feel that it is both our responsibility and our duty to preserve use of the waterfront for the next hundred years. Recognizing this, a committee of administrators, alums, trustees and friends have embarked on a plan to preserve our facility. We are currently submitting a grant to the Chesapeake Bay Trust to fund the construction of a Living Shoreline which will include a rock sill, sand and plantings to restore and recreate the natural habitat lost through the years. We are extremely lucky that our project falls within the parameters of a Sea Level Study being conducted by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The DNR, along with the Corsica River Conservancy, are helping Gunston develop a living shoreline design that will enable our property to be part of a Chesapeake Baywide study on the effects of sea level rise into the next century. It is exciting for Gunston to be part of this study, as it will allow us an opportunity to involve our own science department and student body in research intended to benefit shoreline communities around the world.

Waterfront With over forty-five student-athletes participating, Gunston watersports are a popular draw to students in both fall and spring. Rowing in particular has seen tremendous growth recently. A generous gift from the Maykranz family made possible the purchase of a lightlyused, eight-person shell from Rutgers University, which allowed us to become a more competitive team. This past year, new Head Coach John Hill and Assistant Coach Andrew Newell led nearly thirty student-athletes in both the fall and spring rowing season. With renewed excitement, the Gunston rowers competed in four events over the spring, including a one-day home regatta that resulted in an impressive and close win against local powerhouse rival The Freedom Rowers. The sailing team continues to flourish with a committed group of mariners. Despite being a small squad this spring, they managed to compete in seven varsity events across Maryland, and finished 6th in the MASSA Central League Champs, narrowly missing a berth in the MASSA Championships. 5


Centennial

Weekend


This past autumn, hundreds of enthusiastic alumni returned to the Gunston campus to celebrate the school’s 100th birthday. The alumni joined current and past parents, faculty, trustees, current students and community members for a weekend filled with reminiscing, great food and fun activities. Friday’s festivities began with the first annual Gunston Golf Outing at Hunter’s Oak Golf Club in Queenstown and concluded that evening with field hockey and soccer games, a community-wide tailgate party and an Alumni Cocktail Party at the Headmaster’s residence. On Saturday, the day began bright and early with a 5K run/walk, with over 100 athletes participating. Gunston’s own Christie Grabis brought honor and glory to the school as a first place finisher. Twenty-four beautifully waxed and polished cars found their way onto Gunston's campus for the Centennial Classic Car Show. During the day, Echo Hill Outdoor School’s Skipjack Elsworth sailed into town with Captain Andy McCown (parent ’11) and First Mate Annie Rae ’08 at the helm. The pair conducted guided tours of the Corsica River, providing guests with a unique vantage point from which to view Gunston’s beautiful campus. While the Elsworth travelled the Corsica, the waterfront was also open for canoeing and sailing demonstrations. Alumni, current students, and families participated in traditional Green & White competitions, field hockey and basketball games, a panel discussion, class reunions and a Parade of Classes with alumni present from classes dating back to the 1940s. Saturday’s festivities concluded with an alumni dinner gala with live music and an awards ceremony honoring community members’ contributions to the school. On Sunday, alums enjoyed a traditional pancake breakfast with chefs Tony & Sarah Everdell, Anita Gruss, and Christie Grabis. As alumna Stephanie Shockley DeMallie ’85 commented, “It was the best reunion I ever attended. I see the need that Gunston fills within the community and it makes me proud to be a part of 100 years of Gunston’s history!” Gunston Headmaster John Lewis reflected upon the weekend. “To have alumni from seven decades on campus was truly a once-in-a-century experience. The sense of camaraderie, the appreciation for the beauty of the campus and the great teachers - these are the things that cement our alums together through the generations.”

Global Education As Gunston begins its second century as a school, our students are preparing to enter a world where change is exponential, and students will soon inhabit a workplace that will most likely be unrecognizable to us today. As the world becomes more integrated, our nation’s economy and health will undoubtedly become more dependent on the success of this integration. Both the speed and scope of such significant change means that Gunston must continue to embrace an important fundamental question: How do we best pre-

pare our students to navigate the 21st Century world? Currently at Gunston, with courses focusing on Ancient History and the History of Ideas, our curriculum aims to help students understand the rich intellectual and spiritual heritage of various cultures. Our technological infrastructure provides student access to the limitless resources on the world wide web, and our foreign language program maintains a strong focus on issues of culture. Perhaps most significantly, Gunston annually welcomes onto our campus international students from Europe and Asia who make up nearly 15% of our student body. These talented young men and women, all of whom are living and studying far away from their family and support network, bring an extraordinary diversity of perspectives and experiences to our campus, and we all benefit from their presence. At Gunston, our family atmosphere now extends to diverse communities across the globe. To this end, we dedicate a day each year—Gunston’s International Day—to expanding student understanding of global issues. The aims of this year’s International Day included educating our students about the opportunities and challenges of our rapidly globalizing society, honoring the cultures and traditions of our international students, celebrating the beauty and diversity of various artistic traditions, increasing our students’ overall level of cultural competence, and having some fun. The program included a keynote speaker from the U.S. Army War College, who shared his expertise on Middle East politics and culture; a “Challenge 2020” presentation where students learned about the twenty most pressing issues that will be faced by their generation; a “cultural fair” in the field house where our international students shared various aspects of their heritage; a musical performance by our own Juan Angarita and his band combined with a Colombian dance routine performed by our students; and finally, a very competitive Ping-Pong tournament and our annual chariot races.

A Gunston Hero Laura Newbery ‘84 spends her life making a difference in this world. Combining her love of horses with her innate understanding of children, she has created the non-profit Children, Hope & Horses. Now in its tenth year, the program is designed for children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or who suffer from attachment disorder. These children need a place where they can build self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment and Laura’s program, Children, Hope & Horses, is designed to provide that place. “The sheer size of a horse magnifies a child's every accomplishment. Caring for the horses gives the child a sense of responsibility and opens the door to healing. Experience shows this program to be one of the most effective ways of treating attachment disorder children,” commented Laura. “The horse is a wonderful therapeutic tool for so many reasons. Their body language mirrors that of a person, their reactions are pure and they are intuitive. These attributes speak for the child when the child is too afraid to speak.” Gunston students supported Children, Hope & Horses two years ago through their fundraising efforts.

A Fond Farewell TO TONY & SARAH EVERDELL Over three-hundred alumni, friends, families, past parents and past faculty and staff gathered on campus this past June to honor retiring faculty members Tony and Sarah Everdell. The evening was filled with testimonials and tributes, recognizing their combined seven decades of service to Gunston. Reflecting on her years of service to Gunston, Sarah reflected, “Both Tony and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us be a part of your lives. You have enriched us, challenged us, occasionally frustrated us, but always broadened us. We have found high expectations, loyalty, joy and caring. We wish all of these for all of you.” We wish the Everdells a wonderful retirement as they travel from the banks of the Corsica River to the shores of Blue Hill, Maine.

Their broad smiles, hearty laughs and ceaseless positive outlooks are indelibly etched in our minds. -Bob and Nancy Shoemaker (Parent of Alumnus Patrick Shoemaker ’03)

The Everdells' spirit of collaboration, volunteerism and dedication to the development of the character of the individual as well as the community, shines in my memory. Their contribution to Gunston will remain a beacon in changing times. -Catherine Rodgers Giussani ’80


…Realizing that I had something to offer the world for the first time because I had an amazing English teacher and a determined Sailing teacher that both believed in me as a student and a person. I had not had that before. That is why Gunston will always be home and why we moved our family here so that my children might be able to experience the same thing I did. -Tanna Enriquez ’94

I’ll always remember Mrs. Everdell humming “Yellow Submarine” while writing on the board, and Mr. Everdell singing “Wild Thing”. -Shannon Gillespie

In Feb. 1977 Mrs. Everdell taught a few of us Russian for study week. She may have missed her calling! Her energetic enthusiasm made it so much fun! Shouting, jumping on the table, etc., held our attentions with no problem! It was great. -Sue Cherry Myers ’78

Mr. Everdell once gave me some excellent advice: “Never bring 'personal' baggage with you.” I have remembered that for many years during times when I was going through job changes after college. -Elizabeth Hopkins ’89 11


Centennial Graduation Gunston as a diverse community has provided us with opportunities to broaden our vision and to help us learn more. We are especially fortunate at Gunston to have teachers who act like both our friends and parents. They not only teach us knowledge from books but also help us greatly in many ways in our lives. An excerpt from the Samuel Middleton Award Address - Stella Lin ’11

As the world is shrinking, your global vision must expand. I wonder when Mary and Sam Middleton founded Gunston in 1911, in an era where automobiles where just a novelty, and where the Bay Bridge was not constructed, and commercial flight still a dream, they could have imagined that, a century later, their school would be a global academy that not only served bright and motivated students from the Eastern Shore, but also from the Far East as well. An excerpt from Green & White Awards Address - John A. Lewis, IV

Commencement Remarks Sarah Jayne Everdell June 4, 2011

As I was writing this graduation speech for you (and rewriting and rewriting), it occurred to me that this was definitely payback for all the papers most of you have had to write for me. I want you to know though that: Spy did not eat this speech. The printer did not run out of ink. I will not be sending it to you by email. The computer room is not locked. And I did not leave it in my mother’s car. While trying to come up with a name for the school’s dinghy, Peter Sturtevant realized that Gunston spelled backwards is NOTSNUG. It is appropriate because Gunston has never been snug. I taught eight of these graduating seniors English their freshmen year and none of us were snug, although Cole certainly was a lot shorter. I was nervous because I had not taught English 9 in a while. They were like deer in the headlights. They were so scared, compliant, and good that we went way beyond the standard curriculum, as I remember, and even when it was over, they still had that startled look. That was the year Chris developed an affinity for Allen Ginsberg and Madison put the entire plot of Great Expectations into a poem. I would hope that Eleanora could still recite stanzas from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. This then speaks to the vision of Gunston. Go beyond expectations, find joy, be loyal, and love and care for others. It sounds a bit like the ending of T.S. Eliot’s The Wasteland. As we all know, this is Gunston’s centennial – a major milestone for a school that has always lived on a wing and a prayer. It has succeeded beyond expectations because of the dedication and hard work of trustees, parents, faculty, administrators, and students. It has weathered financial difficulties and questionable decisions. And part of the reason for the school’s success is that it is best when it is true to itself. Gunston’s motto is “Much in Little” or “Multum in Parvo” which, by the way, can be found in Moby Dick. And it speaks to the idea of finding integrity in simplicity. Thoreau spoke of this and this is Charlotte to me barefoot and working on her art, or Laura accomplishing so much with so little fanfare. When I was a senior in high school, I was not the most motivated student much like Hunter, Ian, and Andy in psychology. The president of Wellesley College came to speak at the installation of the Cum Laude Society. I was slouched in the back row until she said, and this is where Parker’s yearbook quote comes from, “Most societal awards praise mediocrity. They praise you for reaching the streetlights when what you really need to do is reach for the stars.” I sat up. Go beyond expectations. Have the courage, such as the courage of Stella and Xiao, to travel half way around the world, and of Alden to perform on stage, and of Carly to take the tiller, and of Josh in his quest to be an architect. To paraphrase Thoreau, do not die only to discover that you had not lived. I would hope that you will all find joy. Joy comes from sharing with others and is found in laughter and the sharing of life, not on Peter’s park bench in The Zoo Story. One of the great aspects about Gunston is all of the stories. I love stories. Ask Ms. Gruss about John the Fireman, or Mrs. Grabis and her teaching moments. Some of us have gotten staid over the years but that did not prevent Mrs. Cunningham from setting off the school’s fire alarms. One of my favorite 2 stories is about the former student who emptied a cup of water out of my classroom window unaware that Mr. Kaylor was standing underneath. Stories enrich us and might include Victoria’s survival of American Government, or Justin’s exploits on the golf course. There are many stories about Katie and I will let her tell you the one she wants to. Ian can tell you about meeting Hillary Clinton and Jake tells good stories about the tennis team. And this is why I urge you to read because stories let us understand ourselves better and as James Baldwin wrote, “If we understood ourselves better, we would damage ourselves less.” All of these stories give us joy. They are the fabric of our lives – the warp and woof as Melville suggests. Ben Kingsley recently made the observation that Americans try to make tragedy illegal. We do not embrace life but are afraid of it. The alternative is to be the shaman telling the stories in front of the fire. Do not settle for the proverbial warm jar of marmalade. It is too easy to settle for less. Seek joy instead.


And I would hope that you will be loyal, especially to Gunston. I expect Pierce to be loyal to Ole Miss, but I also want all of you to keep Gunston in your hearts. Loyalty takes us out of ourselves. It reminds us of more important ideals. I am not taking about blind loyalty, but the loyalty to good causes, to good people, to good schools. It is why Rachel returned to Gunston. Within two months of my arrival in 1972, the other houseparent in Brick had a family emergency, and I was on duty 24/7 for three weeks. Paul Long, the headmaster, gave me a note of thanks and a bottle of sherry, and I was hooked. I have been loyal ever since. It is the same loyalty you saw from Taylor, Abby, Kelsey, and Mr. Michael towards the yearbook. It is the loyalty of Chas to the crew team, of Matt and Ethan to the lacrosse team, and of Tyler to the basketball team and the Ravens. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis have been loyal to Gunston from the first day, even without a bottle of sherry. Loyalty is a wonderful way to live one’s life. It makes you a part of a larger community. It asks of you excellence. It helps define your values. Think of Nick Carraway’s loyalty to Gatsby or Pip’s loyalty toward Magwitch in Great Expectations. And I wish that all of you care. Be passionate about something. This too will move you beyond yourselves. Gunston has survived for 100 years because of people like Paul Long who talked the representative from the Maryland Board of Education into not closing down the school. It has survived because of guardian angels such as Mrs. Duffey and others who gave of themselves; because of Christie Grabis who offered extraordinary leadership through difficult times, and because of Marina, Alice, and Brandi who day after day, lunch after lunch, provide a respite of calm in an otherwise hectic day. And this is where we really shine: Danielle and her passion for dance, Michael and his passion for cars, Nick and his passion for ice hockey, Eleanora and her passion for art, Thad and his passion for sailing, Sarah and her passion for Spy, Andrew and his passion for physics, and Corey and his passion for hunting. And I might also add Mr. Robinson’s passion for history and Mrs. Newell’s passion for poetry. I have seen Alisa reinvigorate the environmental club, Taylor jumpstart Amnesty International, Natalie take on Stu-

“I want all of you to keep Gunston in your hearts. Loyalty takes us out of ourselves. It reminds us of more important ideals. I am not talking about blind loyalty, but the loyalty to good causes, to good people, to good schools.” dent Council and GIVE, and Jennifer tackle the senior class. You all have wonderful talents from Emily’s organizational skills to Dale’s quiet leadership and Andy’s Eagle Scout accomplishments. Use them for good in a world that badly needs all of you to be positive and aware and caring. Caring and love go hand in hand. It is evident with Mrs. Oxnam’s teaching, and with the compassion I see when we are at our best. Care about Gunston’s future. I was asked this year what I thought was my greatest legacy and without hesitation I replied it was being on the search committee that brought the Lewis’ to Gunston. Gunston is ready to begin its second century. Tony and I are a part of the last 100 years. It is easy to focus on the past, but as we learn from Quentin in The Sound and the Fury, that traps you in a world that no longer exists. Mr. Lewis is well positioned to take the school into the next 100 years, and I know it will be quite a ride. We look forward to watching from the sidelines. For the seniors – be open to new ideas, be aware of alternatives, pursue understanding, and most importantly, read. To paraphrase James Baldwin, the writer “illuminates the darkness to make the world a more human dwelling place.” Books are where we go to complicate our lives. Keep your lives complicated so you are forced to face the complexities of life. Your lives will be richer as a result. As a teacher, I cannot resist this final opportunity to reiterate some of the wisdom I have gleaned over the past 38 years. I am sure some of it will sound familiar to many of you sitting here. -Do what you love, but make sure that what you love is worthy of the best of you. Do not be like Harry in The Snows of Kilimanjaro wishing he had not let opportunities pass him by. -Do not let your ego interfere with your happiness. All major religions teach this and they all provide ways to contain your ego. Remember that Dilsey was Faulkner’s favorite character. -The means are more important than the ends. How you get there creates the fabric of your life. Do not confuse what you are with who you are. We already have too many Willy Lomans. -And finally, “Be true! Be true! Be true!” which as you may remember comes from The Scarlet Letter. Live a life of integrity. There was eternity before we were born, there will be eternity after we die, and only this one brief time to be alive. Live that life well. Both of us thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us be a part of your lives. You have enriched us, challenged us, occasionally frustrated us, but always broadened us. We have found high expectations, loyalty, joy, and caring. We wish these for all of you. And always be NOTSNUG. 15


Summer Returns to Gunston Summer activity is not new to Gunston, as camps have existed here many times over the school’s one hundred year history. In 2010, Headmaster John Lewis, trustees, administration and staff made a commitment to bring summer programs back to our 32-acre waterfront campus. With Summer Program Director Amy Gross-Kehoe on board through the winter, plans began. For nine weeks through June, July and August, Gunston hosted over two hundred local children and teens who participated in various exciting programs. Options ranged from Honors Academy academic courses in Math, Writing and SAT Prep for teens to activity-oriented camps teaching 9-14 year olds sweep and scull rowing on Gunston’s Varsity equipment in Pulling Together Rowing Camp. Popular with younger campers was Water, Wonder & Wetlands, an environmental science program designed around the school’s direct access to the Corsica River and well-equipped Biology lab. Campers ages 6-14 observed, collected and scrutinized flora and fauna from the river and the shore. Wet feet were required, as enthusiastic children spent their time canoeing, collecting, releasing and learning to measure oxygen levels in the river. Also popular were the technology camps: Claymation & Stop Action Films, Make your First Video Game, and Junkyard Warriors. Since many camps were half-day programs, campers often mixed programs, adding a half-day of Summer Fun & Sports, where counselors led children in games and activities that took advantage of all Gunston has to offer on campus, from the gym and fields to the canoes at the waterfront. Heralded as a huge success, Gunston is proud to bring summer programs back to campus and looks forward to seeing smiling faces and hearing laughter all summer long, for years to come.

In downplaying this career highlight, Coach Fredland said after the game, "It's not that big of a deal to me, the girls winning, playing well and enjoying the games is what really matters."

Education Beyond the Classroom Each year, Gunston students spend one week during which normal academic classes are suspended and the Chesapeake Bay region becomes their classroom. Bay Studies Week is designed to increase one’s awareness of both the Chesapeake Bay and man's relationship with, and responsibility to, the natural environment. Students develop a greater sense of history and an understanding of economic, social and environmental issues. By using the Chesapeake Bay as a microcosm, students are able to explore a wide range of activities, all of which bring greater awareness of the complex nature of man and his environment.

Moving into our Second Century John A. Lewis, IV, Headmaster Gunston puts our students first, and beyond all other priorities as we begin our second century, our commitment to providing a rigorous, highly personalized, and nurturing college preparatory educational experience is primary. We will continue to cherish our small school atmosphere, where we will seek to maintain our uniquely strong sense of community and our steadfast focus on the balanced development of mind, body, and spirit. These are the values that defined our first century, and they will endure so long as Gunston exists as a school. However, as the world continues to change and evolve, Gunston must continue to evolve with it. Here are a few of the important strategic priorities for Gunston as we proceed through our next few years: ♦

Maintaining our Student-Centered Focus: Even in the face of economic pressures, we must maintain small classes, superior teaching, individualized college guidance, and challenging and diverse student offerings. This includes expanding our extracurricular and student leadership experiences, developing a wider set of academic electives, and incorporating the kinds of instructional technology— learning tools, teaching tools, and communication tools—that bring learning to life, and enhance our uncompromisingly student-focused experience at Gunston.

Enhancing our Facility: While few campuses in the United States are as picturesque as Gunston’s, our academic facilities are in need of upgrading and expansion. Our Board of Trustees recently developed and approved a Facilities Master Plan that seeks to bring Gunston’s academic, athletic, arts, and library facilities fully into the 21st Century. Both for this generation of Gunston students and the next, our entire community must pull together to ensure that this vision becomes a reality.

Investing in our Faculty: As the Everdell celebration demonstrated, our faculty is at the heart of everything that happens at Gunston. Thus, providing opportunities for professional development, ensuring that we maintain a competitive compensation structure, and sustaining a vibrant and dynamic professional culture are essential to our continued success as a school.


Preserving our Waterfront: Gunston’s waterfront is the most unique aspect of our campus landscape. It serves as the home water for our crew and sailing programs and it is a living laboratory for teaching and learning in the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem. As we continue to expand our waterfront programming, the need to maintain a strong and sustainable waterfront in the face of erosion and rising sea levels is imperative. In the near term, Tony and Sarah Everdell’s $100,000 gift to rebuild our long dock in honor of their daughter Molly will go a long way to ensuring the longer term sustainability of the waterfront, as will our pursuit of grant funding to complete a living shoreline restoration that will be part of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Sea Level Rise study. ♦

Affordability: For nearly twenty-five years, independent schools across the nation have been raising tuition above the rate of inflation. The recent recession has shown that such inflationary tuition growth is not sustainable. At Gunston, we are committed—through a constraint of tuition growth and the availability of financial aid for families with demonstrated need—to keep Gunston affordable for all applicants who meet our rigorous admissions standards.

Global Gunston: As our world becomes increasingly smaller and interdependent, Gunston must provide our students with an international world-view and the tools to address our shared global challenges. Through internationally-focused educational programming, travel opportunities, and the continued presence of students from countries around the world on our campus, we will prepare our students to serve as scholars, citizens, and leaders for our world.

♦ Environmental Sustainability: Finally, as a school that is directly attached to one of the world’s most precious, complex, and vibrant ecosystems—the Chesapeake Bay—Gunston aims to be a model of environmental education. From our perspective, our certification as a Maryland Green School this year is simply the beginning of our longer-term efforts to provide an example of sustainable and renewable living.

The good news for Gunston is that there is a broad and deep consensus around these strategic priorities, and I look forward to working with every member of our community to make these visions a reality!

Stoney Duffey assumes Role as Board Chair Incoming Chairman of the Board Harry J. Duffey, III has been connected to Gunston for over five decades. He was a member of the class of 1958, his two children, Patricia Parkhurst ’88 and Catherine MacGlashan ‘88, graduated from Gunston and his sister, Amanda Rutledge ‘52, also attended the school. In fact, Mr. Duffey met his wife, then Jij Wilson, through Gunston when she was teaching biology and physical education. "My family has lived on the Eastern Shore since 1946 and I believe that I am the only second generation Board Chair in Gunston's history", he commented. "My mother, Mrs. Lois Duffey, was the first Board Chair of Gunston and worked closely with all the previous Heads of School." Locally, Mr. Duffey was on the Kent School Board for nine years, was a member of St. Paul's Vestry in Centreville for three years, and was a member of the Queen Anne's County Hospice Capital Committee. He has also been involved in Queen Anne's County 4-H for many years. "I'm proud to be working closely with Headmaster John Lewis. I believe in his vision for the school and am excited to have this opportunity to have a key role in shaping the future of Gunston as the school begins its second century of educating young people." Mr. Duffey replaces long-serving Board Chair Mr. E. Mitchell Fry, Jr. who saw the school through the renovation of Middleton House, a period of extended enrollment growth, and a heightened commitment to socio-economic diversity through a dramatic increase in the school’s financial aid program. “I intend to remain active on Gunston’s board because I believe the school is important to the Eastern Shore and serves as a benchmark for other schools in the area,” Fry commented. “I have sponsored many students at Gunston over the years because I value Gunston’s programs and all the school has to offer the community.” Mr. Fry’s son, Max, graduated from Gunston in 2006 and graduated with honors from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida.

Best Wishes... Glenn Michael and Barbara Oxnam both announced their retirements this year. Glenn served as the school’s photography teacher for over ten years, and was the faculty advisor for both the school yearbook and Gunston’s chapter of National Honor Society. He has taught for over forty-two years. Mrs. Oxnam has been involved in education for over a decade. Most recently she has taught in the humanities department at Gunston, served as the liaison for international students, and this past year, was co-faculty advisor with Mr. Michael for National Honor Society. We are very grateful to both these fine teachers for all they have given Gunston. They will be missed.

Originally from England, and having been raised in various countries around the world, Mrs. Vooris is a multi-talented and worldly person who will also teach English as a World Language, science electives in Ornithology and the Ecology of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as assist with the school’s environmental programming.

Anna Norton: Ms. Norton joins us from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where she has been teaching traditional and digital photography. With an undergraduate degree in anthropology from Tulane and an MFA in photography from Temple University, she will be teaching photography and advising the yearbook. She has wide experience with both digital photography and digital media, and she will be helping us to expand our electives in the digital arts.

Jessica Milligan: Ms. Milligan joins us part-time as the director of our Fitness program. Ms. Milligan has a degree in Kinesiological Sciences from the University of Maryland, and she is a Certified Personal Trainer as well as a Sports and Fitness Nutritionist. She will be working with all of our student-athletes to improve their fitness, flexibility, and nutrition. She also hopes to offer programs for our parent community, so stay tuned.

In the “old faces, new places” department, Mr. Juan Angarita will assume responsibility for integrating instructional technology in the curriculum in addition to teaching Spanish; Ms. Avis Wheatley will coordinate the library transition in addition to her teaching duties; Mrs. Weixing Shepardson, in addition to teaching math, will serve as our Associate International Student Coordinator.

Class Notes 1944 Alexia Beck Bivings wrote to Gunston to state that she has lived in

Tucson for fifty years and would like information about other members of the class of ‘44. She remembers her three years at Gunston with fondness.

1945 Patricia M. Ingels wrote to say, “I am sorry that I missed all of you

Alison Fox & Helen Nalty

on the weekend of October 1-3 but I was there in spirit!”

1946 Excerpts from a letter from Joan Ellingston Marshall to John Lewis: On October 1937, my two sisters and I arrived at Gunston School. Mary Ann, the eldest was nine, I was eight and Jenefer was six. We were met in the dining room where an older girl was directed to show us around while Mother talked to Aunt Mary (Mrs. Middleton). The student took us outside and mounted us on Sugar, a Shetland pony, - 1, 2, 3. Sugar took off at a canter for the barn and quickly, we fell off - 3, 2, 1. We were so overwhelmed by this introduction to schooling at Gunston that we simply accepted it as a condition of life. At Gunston we stayed! Mary Ann for seven years, myself for nine and Jenefer for eleven. It was, therefore, the most complete and intense influence on our lives. We didn’t know how lucky we were!! As in any organization, leadership was the dominating factor, especially in the small isolated community that was Gunston. The dominant person was the owner/headmistress, whom we called Aunt Mary. She and her husband, Uncle Sam, had started the school to educate their own children, relatives’ children and those of surrounding friends. For such a small school we had excellent teachers. The most outstanding one was our French teacher, Elaine Perrot. She was the most demanding as well as the most creative. She wrote French plays for Thanksgiving and Easter, which were clever and imaginative. I still refer to my French grammar which she instilled in us through a mixture of shame and fear. There was no visible intellectual snobbery at Gunston. For such as small school, 40 students at most, the range extended from the reasonably bright to the totally non-academic. They were few but accepted and helped by their peers and to my recollection never bullied by malicious teasing. Aunt Mary had a great belief in ‘culture.’ Yearly, we were taken to the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore or the National Gallery, then the Mellon, in Washington. At age twelve some of us were taken to the Lyric Theater in Baltimore to the opera, ‘la Forza del Destino.’This is not a tribute to Gunston School as much as it is to Mary Middleton, for whom Gunston was the stage. It is a tribute to her great energy, to her indomitable will and lastly, to her generous spirit.

1947 Ishtar Josselyn Abell reminisced that she was happy to


have attended Gunston when Aunt Mary Middleton was alive. “Gunston School and Aunt Mary mean the same to me...I have often wondered why no one has written her biography. Perhaps no one feels they can do her justice.” Ms. Abell is in touch with Isobel Bowland Riggs ‘49 and Eleanor Folks Noble ‘49.

1949 Isobel Bowland Riggs has lived in Montgomery, Alabama since 1957. Her husband passed away in April. She had two children (1 deceased) and 4 grandchildren. Her first great-grandchild was born in December.

1952 Marriott Welch Moska writes, “...My mother decided I needed an iron hand and I went to the Hannah More Academy (now part of St. Timothy’s School) and Glee Club in the boarding days... graduated in 1952. I was able to go there and survive because of Gunston. I had learned that I was one, that I counted; I had learned that I could be wrong but right too. I also learned that it is not so good to put a cig out on the palm of your hand! I learned how to look ladylike sitting on a straw bale in the back of a pickup going to the hunt cup, I learned how to mix baby oil and iodine to get a tan. In other words, I had a wonderfully normal and fun time-thanks to Gunston!”

1961 Anne Keer Charles writes, “After a career in Washington DC with several federal government agencies, I am enjoying a busy retirement in Chestertown, MD where I grew up. I enjoy seeing my Gunston nieces and nephews Liz Keer, and Doug and Annie Rae.”

1963 Elizabeth Berger attended Tiel College and lives in Texas and started her own company which has been very successful. She writes, “The pony in the picture ‘Gunston Through the Years’ name was Minto. When I first went to Gunson in 1953 he was assigned to me for care. It was great seeing him on the internet. I have a few other picture of Gunston from that time. I attended for four years, but did not graduate. When did horses not be a part of the school? I have many fond memories of Aunt Mary and the time I spent at Gunston. “

1973 Debra Kaden writes, “ I have many, many memories of Gunston that have truly shaped my life. I could write a novel regarding my three years at The Gunston School for Girls. I have such fond memories...horses... the Corsica River... but most importantly, for the last 35 years plus, I have maintained friendships with quite a few Gunston women! That, to me, is exceptional!”

thing new everyday from her little Milanese daughter. She continues to do language and relocation consulting and always looks forward to teaching and talking about living in Argentina and Italy.

1981 Stacy Keuls “Great Memories! Just got in touch with Mitchell Brinson (my wonderful roommate for both years), and stay in touch with Leigh Eagerton and some other friends from Gunston (on Facebook of course). I married my husband Bob (21 years now) who I met while on spring break (1980) attending a dance where he and my brother were in school in Florida together. Cindy Jackson drove to Georgia and then Florida for the Dance. We have one beautiful son who is now 16. He’s a very good driver by the way. Whew, I was nervous about this driving thing but he is very responsible and a natural.”

1984 Paige Haase Pruitt reminisces, “Gunston was a place where I found myself, and gained people to help me celebrate who I was to become. I am grateful to the staff and students during my time there, they are always in my heart and my thoughts. Gunston left an everlasting impression in my life. The school song has never left my mind. Thank you Gunston for being such a huge part of my life. Happy 100th!”

1985 Anne W. Stevens writes that she has been doing well. She is a teacher and works at a daycare center and teaches fourteen toddlers, who keep her very busy.

The Continuing Legacy of Tony & Sarah Everdell Countless are the gifts that Tony and Sarah Everdell have given to Gunston over the past four decades, and immeasurable is the impact they have had on the lives of all whom they have touched in that time. Theirs have been careers marked by selfless dedication and service to the school and students they loved. No matter the day of the week or the hour of the day, there was always time for one more explanation of photosynthesis, one more spirited exchange on the topic of governmental excess, one more analysis of the state of the Bay or one more perfectly suited book recommendation. Tony and Sarah have spent their adult lives giving everything they had to Gunston, so it comes as no surprise that as their final year wound down, while the school did everything it could to thank both of them for their longstanding and selfless devotion and to honor all they have done to make Gunston into the remarkable educational institution that it is today, they were pondering one final, transformative gift to the school. After much thoughtful and careful consideration, they arrived at a decision that, looking back, seems almost obvious – they turned their attention to the water. Their decision to make a one-hundred thousand dollar donation provided the requisite funding to wholly rebuild and transform the main Gunston dock into the showpiece for our entire waterfront complex. Tony and Sarah will now have shaped not only the philosophical, ethical, and intellectual space at Gunston, but also the physical campus as well. The newly redesigned main dock will serve as the headquarters for the Gunston varsity sailing team and will give both the sailing and crew programs their own permanent spaces on the waterfront. In a recent conversation, Tony Everdell discussed how this gift came to be. "We were looking for a way to honor Molly. She grew up on the beach and dock at Gunston - it was her favorite place to be. She then went on to participate in sailing at St. George's and at Washington College, where she was part of a championship team at the freshman championships. And then, of course, she came back as a coach here at Gunston. She just loved being on the water. At the same time, we saw the school's need and a way to honor something that was so much a part of Molly's life. It all just kind of came together - we decided to do the big dock and give both sailing and crew their own space and really boost both programs. Once this idea started to come together, John, and then the Board (of Trustees), got behind it, and off we went." As the main sailing instructor at Gunston for more than twenty years, the sailing program was one of Tony's first loves at the school, and he instilled in countless students the love of, as Sarah might say, "simply messing about in boats." Tony decided to phase out of coaching after twenty years and let the next generation of coaches take over. While he turned his attention to Gunston's Bay Studies program, coaches like Hardy Gieske, Ehren Federowicz, Ben Armiger, and Amy Gross-Kehoe took the foundation that Tony had built and really moved Gunston into a position of regional prominence. Tony continued, “Our program is already exceptionally strong - great sailors, great coaches, great exposure. This facility enhancement will put us on track to really compete at a national level. Look around, how many high school campus waterfronts are there? Very few. Not St. George's; Salisbury and Hotchkiss have lakefronts; Christchurch is near the water. This positions our program for greatness. It is our hope that others will see this gift for what it really is, a demonstration of our love of this school that directly benefits the young men and women on campus, and use it to motivate themselves to give in a similar fashion. The waterfront was a real area of interest for our family and we are just so excited to be able to do it."

Staurulakis family honors Catherine Cunningham Leo and Cheryl Staurulakis, parents of John, Doug ’09 and Nick ’11, recently made a significant multi-year pledge to the Gunston Scholarship Fund in honor of Language Department Chair and Latin teacher Catherine Cunningham. The following are excerpts from a conversation between Leo and Cheryl Staurulakis and Ned Southworth, Director of Institutional Advancement, to discuss their gift and why they felt it was so important to give back to the school as their last son was graduating. Why did you choose to send your sons to Gunston? Mrs. Cunningham & Nick at his graduation

We have been familiar with Gunston since our son John was looking for a high school some 7 or 8 years ago. While John was not necessarily a good fit at the time, we had full confidence in Gunston as a learning institution. We were very impressed with the attention paid to the students and the caring attitude of the entire faculty. We also believed that the student to teacher ratio was just right for our sons Douglas and Nicholas. As each of the kids went through their high school experience, we were even more confident that Gunston was the right choice for them.

In what ways do you feel that your sons have most benefitted from their time at Gunston? While most schools can impart a level of knowledge based upon a curriculum, we believe that Gunston does far more than that. Gunston instilled confidence, values, and independence as well as knowledge. Our sons received a well rounded education at Gunston, one that will carry them far.

What do you think sets Gunston apart from its peer schools? All students are individuals and do not fit into one tight mold or category. Our kids are no different. While they were each intellectually capable of doing the work at hand, each had varied interests and was motivated differently. Catherine Cunningham not only got to know our kids as students, she got to know them as individuals, as unique characters. We can honestly say that she had a true interest in them - what drove them, how she could help them succeed and how she could make them better people. She is not only a gifted instructor, she is a caring person with a big, open heart. We couldn't think of a better person to honor with a gift. In addition, we felt that the sports program was extremely valuable in that the coaches taught inclusion and sportsmanship and they opened our sons' eyes to sports they had not played before. We also felt the exposure to international students was an invaluable experience.

Why do you feel it was so important to support The Heron Fund (Gunston's annual giving program)? A first class education, and everything that goes along with it, is something that everyone should have the chance to experience. Unfortunately, not everyone gets that opportunity. Running a private institution is expensive and, as such, the cost of entry is something that not everyone can afford. We are hopeful that our contribution can open the door for some families and allow them to participate in the Gunston experience. We are grateful to Gunston for all that the school has done for our sons and our family and are confident that they will do the same for others. We hope that our gift can enable that.

The family poses for a picture at Doug’s graduation.
