Remarks From the Headmaster

Dear Friends of MBS, When visitors come to campus, they are struck by two things: the beauty of the campus and the infectious feeling of well-being that is reflected by students, faculty, and staff that embodies the true spirit of MorristownBeard School. It is an exciting time to be a part of MBS. As more and more books are published about our overscheduled, overstressed, and overloaded children, MBS is emerging as a clear frontrunner in education. This summer is no different. In July, Stanford University scholars released a heavily researched book: Overloaded and Underprepared, a text that looks at homework loads and daily schedules. Amid this swirl of confusion of what to prioritize, MBS is clear in its focus, mission, and identity: within a culture of support and collaboration, MorristownBeard School students discover and develop their individual pathways to academic success and personal fulfillment while becoming enlightened, morally responsible citizens of the world. This issue of Crimson showcases the success stories of our alumni, students, and faculty. From the humanitarian efforts of Samantha Wynn ’10 to the sustainable farming of Phil Haynes ’10 to the political and social action work of Ivanka Farrell ’10, it’s exciting to see how our young graduates are excelling in a wide range of endeavors. We also feature the creative pursuits of two MBS faculty/staff members— English teacher Peter Donahue and Assistant to the Headmaster Barbara Clark, who both published books last spring. This issue also highlights several new initiatives on campus including our Middle School Wellness Program 2

as well as our marketing and branding initiatives designed to refine and strengthen the Morristown-Beard School brand. Marketing and Communication are a priority of our newly-adopted 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, along with Academic Program, Technology in the Classroom and the Community, Diversity and Inclusion, and Facilities and Safety. We are so inspired by the important goals we have set forth in this plan, and we are excited about our future. Creating this plan was a truly collaborative effort, and I am grateful to the many members of our community who helped us think critically and creatively as we chart our course over the next five years. As you will read in our Annual Report, it’s been a record setting year for the Morristown-Beard Fund, our annual fund. In 2014-2015, our community—including trustees, parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends—not only surpassed the $1 million dollar mark again, but also set an all-time high for the Morristown-Beard Fund in terms of total dollars raised. This achievement speaks volumes about the faith and pride that our community has in Morristown-Beard School. As we head into the fall semester, I invite you to return to campus for a number of exciting events. Our Homecoming celebration and Athletic Hall of Fame Induction ceremony will both take place on Friday night, October 2nd. Join us as we honor John Hatch ’66, Carey (Scully) Strobeck ’92, Michael Betz, Jr. ’08, and Julie Guempel ’09 before our football team takes on Butler High School on Burke Field.

In the coming year, we will also be celebrating our 125th Anniversary! We look forward to marking this historic milestone with a series of events in the spring, including our 125th Anniversary Gala celebration on Saturday, April 16th at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange. Please look for more information about these events in the near future. The 125th Anniversary timeline in this magazine illustrates just how far we’ve come—from the earliest days of St. Bartholomew’s, The Morristown School, and The Beard School to the Morristown-Beard School we know today, with its wonderful campus, rigorous academic program, and warmly inclusive community. We truly have much to be proud of.

MBS Moments Moving Up Ceremony & Commencement Early June was a celebratory time at Morristown-Beard School as 8th Graders participated in the Moving Up ceremony on June 5th, while seniors received their diplomas the next day. At the Moving Up ceremony in Founders Hall, 63 8th Graders received certificates and advanced from the Middle School to the Upper School. On June 6th, faculty, family, and friends gathered under the tent on Senior Circle and cheered as 106 seniors officially joined the MBS alumni family. “During our time at MBS, we learned how to think independently, creatively, and critically,” said Valedictorian Jack Lindberg ’15. “We sought out and cultivated our interests and passions. And I would say, most importantly, we learned about who we are and who we have the potential to become. As students at MBS, we gained not only academic skills, but we also learned how to strengthen our characters.” “To all of my classmates, congratulations! I’ve seen the passion each and every person here has,” said Student Government President Will Laud ’15. “I’ve seen us grow into leaders, athletes, scholars, and with unfailing kindness, I’ve seen us support each other in record numbers.”

Dear Edwina, Jr.

The School community was treated to an evening of musical comedy as the MBS Middle School performed Dear Edwina, Jr. on Thursday, May 21st in Founders Hall. The cast also gave a special performance for Middle School students that same morning.

Building Bridges

This spring, students in Dr. Christopher Payette’s physics class tested the structural integrity of toothpick bridges that they designed. As students held their breath, Dr. Payette slowly poured water into a bucket suspended from the bridges to test their load-bearing capabilities. Congratulations to Marc Tietjen ’16 for winning the best bridge design contest.

Totton & Crimson Night A Lesson in Empathy Young Scientists

The 38th annual Larry Totton Golf & Tennis Tournaments were played on May 18th at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster and were a tremendous success. More than 100 golfers enjoyed a wonderful day on the course, participating in numerous contests with opportunities for prizes along the way, including a putting contest against Headmaster Peter J. Caldwell. The event also included a day of tennis on Trump National’s Har-Tru granular surface courts. At Crimson Night, members of the MBS community enjoyed a cocktail reception, buffet dinner, and a fabulous live auction. Professional auctioneer Nick Dawes auctioned off golf trips, tickets to sporting events, and much more. Scholar-athletes Matt Karlson ’15 and Jill Burke ’15 spoke about the many lessons that they have learned by participating in MBS athletics. Many thanks to the fantastic team of parent volunteers led by Gil Santaliz, Jim Nadler, and Shane Connell.

A Lesson in Empathy

Last May, students in Dr. Patrick Horan’s Humanities 11 Honors class tried to navigate the campus blindfolded, with only a classmate’s directions to help them. The activity was designed to teach the students empathy for the visually impaired and to experience first-hand how difficult it would be to live without sight. When the students returned to their classroom after the activity, they reflected on what it felt like to be “blind,” whether they felt lost, whether they trusted their partner, and whether they had problems communicating. They also discussed the reactions of other people on campus, and why they reacted that way. As a follow-up assignment, the students assigned themselves a physical disability and wrote diary entries describing what a typical day feels like in the shoes of the disabled.

Young Scientists

Students in Kristen Pochomis' sixth grade science class took part in a Middle School rite of passage this spring as they donned colorful plastic goggles and rubber gloves to participate in frog dissections. The activity helped the students see, touch, and explore the various organs in the body and understand how these systems work within many other animals and within themselves.

CMW Takes Center Stage

Grandparents & Special Friends Day

In April, grandparents and special friends of Morristown-Beard students enjoyed a typical day on campus—without worrying about taking tests and quizzes! It was a record-breaking day, as nearly 200 grandparents visited MBS. During the annual Grandparents & Special Friends Day celebration, students had an opportunity to play tour guide for the day as they showed their guests around the campus, took them to classes, and introduced them to their friends.

CMW Takes Center Stage

The spring CMW (Contemporary Music Workshop) show featured an array of student and faculty talent, and showcased a wide variety of musical styles. The show featured talent from the Upper and Middle School, as well as special appearances by members of the MBS faculty and staff. Behind the scenes, CMW also created opportunities for students to shine in the areas of promotion as well as lighting and sound design.

Chariots of Fire!

There was plenty of pageantry and athletic drama as the Latin Club transformed Burke Field into a Circus Maximus and staged the second annual series of chariot races this May. Emperor (and Latin teacher) Michael McGrann presided over the festivities clad in a toga, and in the Roman tradition of the panem et circenses, keeping the masses content with ample food and entertainment, he offered the spectators traditional treats.

House Challenge

Every point is important in the 8th Grade House Challenge Cup— just ask the Athenians! After a long year of challenges, contests, and events, the Athenians captured the 2015 8th Grade House Challenge Cup, edging the Spartans by a mere half a point! It’s the second time in the past three years that the Athenians have won the Cup.

Strike a Pose!

On a beautiful spring afternoon, Upper School girls found inner peace on Senior Circle as they participated in a yoga workshop sponsored by the GLOW (Girls Leadership Outreach and Worth) Club. The GLOW Club is a student organization that hosts a monthly speaker series designed to empower young women, encourage on-campus social events, and inspire random acts of kindness.

Powerfully prepared

By Steve Patchett

Our students are our future—and our young alumni are mighty proof of the powerful impact an MBS education can have. As the alumni featured in this issue demonstrate, our graduates leave Morristown-Beard School exceedingly well prepared for the challenges of college and of starting a career. Just as their skills in thinking, writing, and time management set them apart among entering college students, the qualities of mind they develop here position them for professional success and personal fulfillment long after college. Passionate, hardworking, and fueled by a desire to give back, these young alumni are making meaningful breakthroughs in college and beyond. We are proud to be a part of their journey.

A Fairytale Freshman Year 14 Crimson

Fall 2015


Trevor Baptiste ’14

Current city: Denver, Colorado Currently studies at the University of Denver To say that Trevor Baptiste ’14 had a fairytale freshman year at the University of Denver would be an understatement. In his first season on the Division I stage, the former All-State lacrosse player from Morristown-Beard School led the University of Denver to its first ever national championship with a 10-5 win over the University of Maryland. Baptiste, who was named to the All-Tournament team, went 10-for-19 on faceoffs for the Pioneers in the championship game. The victory marked a truly transformative moment in the sport — never in the 44-year history of the NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse tournament had a non-East Coast team won the title. “It was definitely a surreal feeling to win a national championship,” said Baptiste. “As the year progressed, I saw how amazing and special our team truly is. Towards the end of the season, there was no doubt in my mind that we were going to be in the running for a national championship.” Baptiste’s accomplishments during the season were simply astonishing. He became the first freshman lacrosse player selected as a Division I AllAmerican since 2001. His 300 faceoff wins set an NCAA season record for faceoff wins by a freshman. Only three other lacrosse players have ever won more faceoffs in a Division I season. Baptiste was also named the 2015 Big East Midfielder of the Year, and earned a spot on the First Team All-Big East squad. He led the country in faceoff percentage at 72.1, and was on the watch list for the Tewaaraton Award, the lacrosse equivalent of the Heisman Trophy. “The transition to Division I athletics was definitely something that I had to get used to, but I don’t think it was too bad because of all the support I had from my teammates, my coaches, my parents, and the whole MBS community,” said Baptiste. “I could really feel it, and I am grateful to have such great people around me. My high school friends were always staying in touch, wondering how I was doing. Coach Sal (Tromonda) was truly a spark for me and helped take me to the next level. Whether it was calling me or getting me physically and mentally ready, Coach Sal, Coach (Kevin) Meany, and all of the coaches were instrumental to my success at DU.” In the classroom, Baptiste is also making a smooth transition and is particularly enjoying his business classes. He gives credit to his teachers and classes at MBS for preparing him well. “At MBS, I think the most influential classes were the ones that were the hardest — classes like AP Calculus and Pre Calculus Honors. They really taught me to work hard and stick with the material,” he said. “I also learned a lot from Mr. (Christian) Rabin’s English class. He taught me not to get caught up with answers, but to focus more on the process and the journey.” So, as he enters his sophomore year, what does Baptiste do for an encore? In the future, he’d like to “continue to improve as a lacrosse player, be a great teammate, do well in the classroom, and never lose sight of having fun.”

Digital Politics Ivanka Ferrell ’10

Current city: Washington, D.C. B.S., Political Science, George Washington University

From the time she was a senior at MBS, Ivanka Farrell ’10 has been using new media to transform politics and drive social change in the digital age. For her Senior Project, Farrell landed a position with Bully Pulpit Interactive (BPI), a political digital advertising firm in Washington, D.C. Throughout her college years at George Washington University, she continued working at BPI while pursuing a degree in political science. Today, she is an associate at BPI, where she manages digital marketing strategy, operations and creative direction for a wide range of political and non-profit clients including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Human Rights Campaign, and LIVESTRONG. “On a daily basis, I’m surrounded by people from various backgrounds who are extremely passionate, and that’s very motivating. I’m lucky to work at a really collaborative firm,” said Farrell. “I’ve just loved seeing the company grow from about five employees in one room during my Senior Project at MBS to more than 70 employees in multiple offices today.” During the 2012 Presidential election, Farrell headed to Chicago to work on the Obama for America digital advertising team. During her six months on the campaign, she ran their Twitter ad program and managed reporting and optimization for their email acquisition and online fundraising program. Every member of the Digital Ads team was under the age of 35, with Farrell being the youngest at 19. She said she saw President Obama twice during her time there —once on his birthday weekend and once the day after his reelection. “Meeting the President for the first time was surreal,” she said. “He’s a figure we see every day on the news, in magazines, everywhere...being 16 Crimson

less than 10 feet away from him, listening to him speak to campaign staff about his vision for the United States was incredible. I will never forget that experience.” With the 2016 election coming up, Farrell says she intends to be involved, although her work will probably be more peripheral than it was in 2012. “I don’t have intentions of being embedded on the presidential campaign, but will definitely still be involved in the election cycle through BPI’s political work,” she said. Farrell has been fascinated by politics and government from an early age, and said that many of her teachers at Morristown-Beard School catapulted her interest to new heights. “Mr. Kamil pushed me to explore why I was interested in politics and why I developed the views I held. He always asked me the tough questions, which I appreciated because they helped me solidify my views and fully understand them. Dr. Mascaro also served as a good person to bounce ideas off of. He was a great teacher to just talk about politics and explore current issues in our government,” said Farrell. “Dr. Cooper was another teacher who really solidified my interest in politics. In fact, I took his Political Theory class twice!” Farrell says her work at BPI keeps her challenged and engaged on a daily basis, and she is grateful to MBS for fueling her passion. “Morristown-Beard really brought out my love of politics,” she said. “I’m confident that whatever I choose to do, I’ll have the tools to succeed.”


Samantha Wynn ’10

Current city: Schenectady, NY B.A., Environmental Policy Samantha Wynn’s desire to help others has taken her across the world. After graduating from Union College with a degree in environmental policy, Wynn was awarded a competitive 10-month fellowship designed to encourage graduates to become global citizens through sustainable projects and social entrepreneurship. She was placed in Siem Reap, Cambodia where she worked at a small private school called The Global Child, teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) and health to poor children who would otherwise be working on the streets. “The Global Child is a very sustainable model for education,” Wynn explained. “We provide students with health care, uniforms, two meals a day, safe house, legal needs, and most importantly, $1 a day to attend school. We do this because that is what the child would be providing to the family for a full day’s work at home in the fields, selling fruit at the market, or begging for money on the streets.” Wynn said the hardest part of living and working in Cambodia was figuring out how to make a difference in a meaningful and respectful manner without overstepping cultural boundaries. “There are many non-profits in Siem Reap, but most do not have a sustainable model for development,” said Wynn. “Irresponsible volunteering and the tourism industry exploit many local Cambodians, and can undermine local people’s confidence by increasing the dependency on outside help.” She said the most rewarding part of her work was earning the respect of her students, a process that did not come overnight, but rather took many months. “My students came from situations where experience taught them not to trust everyone who comes into their lives,” said Wynn. “When my students started to come to me and ask for help or advice on things beyond what they were learning in the classroom, that’s when I knew I earned their respect. These kids have a lot of love to give, so it was really heartwarming to be able to be a good role model in their lives.” Wynn credits Morristown-Beard School for helping to instill her spirit of volunteerism. Not surprisingly, when she enrolled at Union College her very first class was Social Responsibility. She is particularly grateful to Carol McGough, former Director of the Learning Center at MBS, for helping her succeed. “I struggled with learning disabilities when I was younger,” said Wynn. “Ms. McGough helped me see my talent and pushed me to find my potential. In Cambodia, learning disabilities go unrecognized. Some of my students visibly had similar problems like I had when I struggled in class. I worked with these students in my free time to try to help them the same way Ms. McGough helped me.” To leave a lasting impact beyond her classes, Wynn also volunteered at The Siem Reap Women’s Resource Center (WRC) where she created a partnership with The Global Child. After launching a successful fundraising campaign, she organized workshops led by WRC social workers to deliver health information to school families in a culturally respectful manner.

Global Citizen

Although she recently returned to the U.S. to start her next adventure, Wynn said she will definitely visit Cambodia again someday. “I told my 6th graders I would return when it came time for them to graduate from high school, and I plan on following through with that promise,” she said. Crimson

A Deeply Rooted Passion Phil Haynes ’10

Current city: Mendham, NJ B.S., Anthropology, Connecticut College

For Phil Haynes ’10, farming is far more than just a career—it’s a deeply rooted lifestyle and a powerful way to affect positive change in his community. Along with his older brother Bennett, Phil is a co-owner of Ralston Farm in Mendham and Hopewell, NJ where he farms for a growing 150-member Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Through the CSA, local families have the opportunity to buy everything from organically-grown heirloom tomatoes, rainbow chard, and butternut squash to eggs from the farm’s free range chickens or a share of the pork that Phil raises. The farm also provides fresh vegetables to several local restaurants including Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen in Morristown, their main partner. “We work closely with the chefs and are always sharing ideas,” said Phil. “It’s exciting to see how their creativity celebrates our food.” Bennett founded Ralston Farm in Mendham in 2011 after spending a year abroad in Thailand, where he was inspired by the sustainable agriculture movement. Phil, who felt an obligation to his brother and his community, worked on the farm during summer breaks. As an anthropology major and botany minor at Connecticut College, he studied food systems and agricultural history. Determined to learn the “scientific and responsible way of doing things,” Phil spent a semester abroad at Hayter’s Hill Farm in Australia, and later earned a livestock apprenticeship at the prestigious Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in New York. Although farming may seem like an unlikely career choice for a young man growing up in Basking Ridge, Phil’s interest can be traced as far back as middle school. At MBS, he recalls being fascinated by history 18 Crimson

teacher Chris Teasdale’s discussion of the domestication of plants and animals, and he has fond memories of working with science teacher Bill Lamson on the 8th grade composting project. Tellingly, his science fair experiment tested whether or not people could taste the different between organic and non-organic cherry tomatoes. (They could!) Today, Phil works long, physically demanding days, but he says he gets a tremendous amount of satisfaction from being a farmer. “The tangible, sensory part of the work is very satisfying, but it’s not just physical—it’s also spiritual. I enjoy working with the animals the most. The connection you have with them really informs you about your own humanity,” he said. In the future, Phil would like to expand the livestock business within Ralston Farm, and says their newly-acquired property in Hopewell is providing new ways and new opportunities to feed the community. “We’ve gone from two acres to more than 23, we’ve hired two full-time employees, and we’re now trucking our produce to Morris County three times a week for distribution, as well as doing a farm stand on Saturdays,” said Phil. “It’s been a huge undertaking, and we’re already thinking of ways to adjust our model to make it more efficient.” He said that being a CSA will always be at the core of the business, and he hopes that his passion for local, sustainable agriculture influences the next generation. “Feeding people and seeing them enjoy your food is especially rewarding,” he said. “I’d really like to inspire young people and have them draw connections to the food that they eat.”


Lucas Fagan ’17

Current city: Zaragoza, Spain Junior at Morristown-Beard School

This year, Lucas Fagan ’17 is embarking on an educational adventure he’ll never forget — and he couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity. Fagan will spend his junior year studying in Spain through the School Year Abroad (SYA) program, where he will live with a family in Zaragoza, a city about three hours from both Madrid and Barcelona. “Learning a new culture will be different, but my classes at MBS have prepared me well to get the most out of the experience,” said Fagan. “The whole idea of living with a new family and seeing their traditions will be exciting. I’m also looking forward to touring Spain and other parts of Europe.” He first learned about the opportunity to study abroad from Aline de la Torre, the Global Studies Coordinator at Morristown-Beard School. “After speaking with her, I realized that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a new country,” said Fagan. “Today’s world is more connected than ever before, and studying abroad gives you a multi-faceted perspective that’s very valuable.” Fagan will take classes at the SYA School in the city center, where he will study macro economics, history of the Hispanic world, environmental science, AP Spanish, English, and math. All of his courses will be taught in Spanish by native instructors with the exception of English and math, which will be taught in English by American teachers. “I think the biggest challenges will be learning the language and communicating my thoughts,” he said. “People will probably speak faster than I’m used to.” To prepare himself for the trip, Fagan spent much of the summer reading Spanish news and watching Spanish TV shows. At MBS, he has studied Spanish throughout the Middle School as well as two years of honors Spanish in the Upper School. Fagan said he has enjoyed his classes at MBS so far, and he hopes his passion for learning continues during his time in Spain. “At MBS, I look forward to going to school every day. I love it — it’s a great learning environment,” he said. “I’ve especially enjoyed 8th Grade History with Mr. Teasdale, Advanced iOS Programming with Mrs. Napholtz, and all of my math classes.” This past summer, Fagan also took a Stanford University online math course to help him further his interests. “Right now, I think I’d like to pursue math in college, but that could change,” he said. “Studying in Spain could be a life-changing experience, and I’m always open to new ideas.”

Taking Pride in Our Name

Refining and Strengthening the MBS Brand 20 Crimson

Fall 2015


Members of the Morristown-Beard School community know how special our School is. We hear it from current students, parents, faculty and alumni. Making sure that this is known beyond our community is important as well—not only to spread MBS pride, but also to strengthen the reputation of our School. It was with this in mind that MorristownBeard School embarked on an important two-year marketing and branding project to develop a deeper understanding of our School’s public image and marketable strengths, to use that knowledge to refine our message, to strengthen the School’s image, and to bring a new level of impact to all of our communications. Expert Guidance

Working closely with a team from Kelsh Wilson, a Pennsylvania-based consulting firm specializing in strategic communications, we thoughtfully refined our marketing and communication strategy, keeping in mind that the keys to success are consistency and impact—giving voice to a single set of messages and adopting the same visual approach across all of our communications in order to establish a more recognizable MBS brand. Kelsh Wilson helped us to understand that consistency is the very essence of a brand. Only by expressing the same set of messages over time and by adopting a coherent visual approach across our communications can we build recognition and shape a distinctive image. Achieving impact means speaking honestly to our School’s strengths, speaking directly to the concerns of our constituencies, and communicating clearly with skill and creativity. In committing to this project, we took on a considerable challenge: to identify what sets MBS apart from other schools, and to boldly communicate that in an academic environment crowded with competing messages.

It Takes a Community

The foundation for accomplishing all of this is solid research. For the past few years, the MBS community has reflected long and hard about who we are. Our marketing and branding efforts are the product of a series of studies that date back to 2013. At that time, we had begun preparing for our New Jersey Association of Independent Schools (NJAIS) accreditation, which was granted in February 2015. The accreditation Crimson

self-study process is a lengthy and thorough one, requiring input from community members spanning all constituencies, and resulting in an extensive report on a myriad of facets of the community, from safety and security to academic programs. This self-study was well underway when we sent a comprehensive online survey to the parent community in January 2014. Conducted by Lookout Management, Inc. from London, Ontario, the survey measured perceptions and attitudes by parents about a number of aspects of our School. We know that our parents play a critical role in shaping our School’s brand and reputation in the community. The results of the survey were affirming—parents were particularly pleased with the School’s leadership, the focus on the individual student, and the strong sense of community. That same year, Kelsh Wilson conducted numerous focus groups with community members in order to gauge the School’s strengths and to begin to shape a messaging strategy that would reflect what our community already knows, believes, and experiences to be true about MBS. After analyzing all of the data that was collected, Kelsh Wilson presented their findings and recommendations to the Board of Trustees in September 2014. Finally, we were fortunate that these studies coincided with the drafting of our 2015-2020 Strategic Plan (see pg. 26), which leveraged the insights gleaned from these studies to inform our strategic choices moving forward. In fact, marketing and communication proved to be such an important strategic area that it was identified as one of the five specific strategic objectives of the plan. 22 Crimson

Based on the recommendations from our consultants, our new tagline, “Powerfully Prepared for Learning and For Life,” will be used in marketing efforts as well as everyday communications. Our School logos received a fresh, new look from designer Jaimi Talarico. In order to encourage consistency in communication and proper use of the logos, Mrs. Talarico created a comprehensive Message Guide and Graphic Standards Guide to be used by all members of the MBS community. “We hope the MBS community will refer to these guides when writing a letter or brochure or planning a talk,” said Mrs. Talarico. “This is a helpful resource to ensure we are all speaking with one voice and one look.” This deliberate and intentional effort to clearly communicate who we are and what we do at MBS is a school-wide effort, closely managed by team members of the Office of Institutional Advancement. “Our marketing and branding initiatives will help strengthen our School’s image and bring a greater level of impact to our communications,” said Betsy Patterson, Director of Institutional Advancement. “We will work closely with all departments—Admission, College Counseling, Athletics—and all faculty and staff to assist and support them when communicating about Morristown-Beard School.” “Strengthening the Morristown-Beard School brand is one of our strategic priorities,” said Headmaster Peter J. Caldwell. “And in doing so, together we are strengthening the School’s image and reputation, positioning it for success for years to come.”

Education: A Family Business Now in his fifth year at Morristown-Beard School, Headmaster Peter J. Caldwell has established quite a name for himself both in the area and in the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools. Just this past year, he was inducted into the Headmaster’s Association, a distinguished national organization founded in 1893, which includes just one other sitting head of school from New Jersey. The son of boarding school teachers, Peter Caldwell has been deeply immersed in the life of an independent school community since childhood, and his professional experience reflects this fundamental truth: he is a life-long educator. Peter’s work in education comes naturally to him. In fact, one could say for the entire Caldwell family that education is a family business.

4.

2. 1.

1. Along with his three siblings, Peter grew up on the campus of The

Putney School, a boarding school for grades 9 through 12 located in Putney, Vermont. For 40 years, his mother, Hester “Hep,” and father, John, taught, coached, and led expeditions into the wilderness as part of The Putney School’s progressive curriculum. Jack Caldwell, Peter’s grandfather, worked at Putney as the school’s business manager from 1941 to 1957. In 2009, The Putney School dedicated its new field house, the first “net zero” LEED certified platinum building at a U.S. independent school, to the Caldwell family for their many contributions to the school including teaching, fiscal management, and cross-country skiing.

2. Peter’s father, John Caldwell, was a 1952 Olympian and coached

not only The Putney School ski team, but also the United States team in the 1960, 1964, 1968 and 1972 Olympics. Peter’s brother, Tim, was a four-time Olympian.

3. After graduating from Bowdoin College, Peter taught history for

five years at Vermont Academy, becoming Dean of Students at the age 24 Crimson

Fall 2015

of 26. After graduating from Harvard Graduate School of Education, Peter spent six years at Riverdale Country School in the Bronx as Director of Admission.

4. Before coming to MBS in 2011, Peter was at St. Andrew’s School

in Delaware for 20 years, where he served as Assistant Headmaster and raised his three children, twins Alexa and Tyler, and Lucinda with his wife, Darcy.

5. It was at graduate school that Peter met his future wife, Darcy Fernald, who had arrived to Harvard after teaching at Northfield Mount Hermon and Choate Rosemary Hall. After joining Peter at Riverdale Country School, Darcy taught English for 20 years at St. Andrew's and is starting her first year at MBS teaching Upper School English.

6. Like Peter, Darcy comes from a family of educators.

Her father, Dodge Fernald, had a distinguished teaching career in the Psychology Department at Harvard University, earning several awards during his 35-year tenure, which culminated in a Lifetime Achievement Award

upon his retirement from Harvard in 2012. Darcy’s mother, Marjorie, also taught at the college level and was career counselor at Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA.

7. The legacy of the family business of education lives on with Peter and Darcy’s three children. Alexa and Tyler, 26-year old twins, are pursuing their passion in education. Graduating respectively from Brown University and Harvard University in 2011, both went straight into teaching. Alexa worked for three years as a history teacher, boys varsity soccer coach, girls varsity lacrosse coach, dorm parent, and Assistant Director of Admissions at Asheville School in Asheville, NC. This fall, she continues her teaching and coaching career at Phillips Exeter Academy.

8. In his fifth year as an English teacher at Phillips Exeter Academy,

Tyler is also head crew coach and head of a dormitory. Last spring, he was the recipient of the Young Teacher Award at Exeter. Tyler is pursuing his master’s degree in English at the prestigious Bread Loaf School of English through Middlebury College in Vermont.

9.

Peter and Darcy’s youngest child, Lucinda, graduated from Brown University in May. As an undergraduate, she volunteered at a lowincome public school, teaching fifth grade students in the afternoons. Recently she returned for her third summer of teaching and coaching at Sports Challenge, an organization that works with students from widely diverse socioeconomic backgrounds and teaches them to be leaders within their communities.

At Morristown-Beard School, Peter Caldwell’s life work in education has been infused into the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan (see pg. 26) and the self-study accreditation process. He has worked to further MBS’s momentum as a school of choice within northern New Jersey. Under his leadership, the School is achieving its mission: Within a culture of support and collaboration, students discover and develop their individual pathways to academic success and personal fulfillment while becoming enlightened, morally responsible citizens of the world.

A Message from the Co-Chairs It is with great enthusiasm that we present the 2015-2020 Morristown-Beard School Strategic Plan. On behalf of the entire Strategic Planning Steering Committee, we would like to thank all participants for their time and dedication in the development of the MBS Strategic Plan. In the end, it was the dedicated effort of the entire School community—faculty, staff, alumni, parents, students and Board members—that made this important planning process a success. The information gathered over the past year—including data from surveys, focus groups, strategy sessions, in-house self-studies and a two-day retreat led by our strategic plan consultants—provided invaluable insight in the creation of our new Mission Statement and the five specific strategic objectives of the 2015-2020 MBS Strategic Plan. On May 5, 2015, the Morristown-Beard School Board of Trustees approved the final plan that will guide our School for the next five years. This ambitious new plan focuses on ensuring that all MBS students have the opportunity to pursue the best educational experience to be had, and that they continue to learn in an engaging, stimulating and collaborative environment—one that powerfully prepares them for learning and for life. We feel privileged to have co-chaired this process, and are appreciative of the critical feedback and creative contributions from our entire School community. We look forward to seeing the implementation of this collective effort unfold over the next five years. Respectfully,

A Program for Life:

By Steve Patchett

Tuttle Guides New Wellness Program in Middle School The middle school years are a time of incredible change in the lives of young people. In addition to the numerous physical changes associated with this period, intellectual and emotional development are just as significant. At the same time, adolescents face an increasingly complex social scene and academic challenges. As a student-centered institution, Morristown-Beard School focuses on fostering the skills students need to make good decisions and successfully navigate the many demands they face every day. Whether relating directly to their academic performance (such as organization skills and stress management) or making safe choices (for example, street smarts and digital citizenship), the newly-created MBS Middle School Wellness Program strives to equip students with the skills and tools they need to be successful, safe and happy. “Our Wellness Program aims to help students develop the skills and habits needed to handle the gradual increase in responsibility and independence that go hand-in-hand with the journey through adolescence toward adulthood,” said Sam Tuttle, Psy.D., who joined the MBS Middle School last fall as a guidance counselor. “I believe it is the comprehensive nature of our program that makes it effective. I have the opportunity to work with students in our workshops, teach them in health classes, as well as interact in more traditional counseling settings. I also have the chance to further develop our advisory program. In addition, we offer a number of parent coffees throughout the year on a variety of topics including homework, transitions, and development.” In the past year, Tuttle helped organize a number of workshops with Middle School students covering a range of topics including gratitude,

preventing and reducing relational aggression, gender roles, and stress management. The Wellness Program is offered to all Middle School students, with certain workshops geared toward specific grades where appropriate. “I’m so excited that Sam has joined our Middle School. He has brought a wealth of experience having developed an extensive counseling program at his previous school,” said Head of Middle School Boni Luna. “His incredible insight into the adolescent child coupled with the ability to implement new programs makes him a valuble asset and resource for our School.” Prior to joining MBS, Tuttle served as a member of the Child Study Team at The School at Columbia University. He received his B.A. in psychology from the University of Massachusetts, his M.A. from NYU, and his Psy.D. in clinical psychology from George Washington University. At Columbia, he provided individual and group counseling to students, and designed and taught the Middle Division Life Skills curriculum. Tuttle said that he has received a great deal of positive feedback from both students and parents about the various facets of the new MBS Middle School Wellness Program. He said that feedback and suggestions are essential in helping to improve the program as it moves forward. “We intend to continue to develop programs and workshops that will enhance the learning environment at MBS,” said Tuttle. “In doing so, we will remain alert for opportunities to better meet the needs of our students in a fast-changing world.”

Now in his second year as an Upper School English teacher at Morristown-Beard School, Donahue was inspired to write a letter to his colleagues. Below is an excerpt from that letter sent to all MBS Faculty and Staff.

By Steve Patchett

As the year winds to a close, I have been reflecting on my decision to leave my previous school and apply for a job here. Is my life better? Is my teaching better?

An Animated Discussion with

I thought you should know that the answer is yes, and more than anything else, you are the reason why. Today is an excellent example of everything that my move to MBS has meant for me—and I haven’t even taught my classes yet.

Morristown-Beard School English teacher Peter Donahue is a true Renaissance man. In addition to teaching Upper School English classes, Donahue is an artist, playwright, actor, director, musician, and historian. Crimson recently sat down with the multi-talented teacher to discuss his latest project—Rudek and the Bear: Volume I, a collection of his webcomics that was published this spring.

I started Period 8 with a presentation of a scene that I worked on with three students in Theater Lab. Susie Speidel not only helped me develop and clarify my goals for the club, but gave us half a period of her Musical Theater class as a performance venue. This was all made possible by Susie’s willingness to collaborate and be generous with her class time.

Peter Donahue

Q: When did you start creating your own cartoons? Who were your influences?

A: I’ve been drawing and reading cartoons since I was about six. At that age, I devoured Calvin and Hobbes and drew my own homage (or complete rip-off) called John and Joe. It wasn’t until I was an adult, however, that I became interested in graphic novels—long-form, literary storytelling in the comics medium. Besides Calvin and Hobbes, my main influences growing up were Disney and Warner Brothers animation, and European comics like Tintin and Astérix. I think you can still see the mark of all those influences on my work.

Q: Did you want to be a cartoonist when you grew up?

A: I had a lot of interests and no plan… but

at times cartooning was my goal. When I was in middle school, I tried developing a daily comic strip to submit for newspaper syndication, because I wanted to be like Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin and Hobbes. But even at 12 years old, I knew the cards were stacked against me—the submissions packets for newspaper comics all warned that of the hundreds of submissions they received every year, one or two were selected for publication. It didn’t really occur to me that there were avenues for comics other than the newspaper, and so I hit a wall. 34 Crimson

Fall 2015

Q: How did the storyline for Rudek and the Bear evolve—have you always been interested in World War II history? A: I think I’ve become interested in the 1920s-1940s because when I consider the world today, we’ve somehow failed to learn from that period. The economics, the propaganda, all of it. I was actually working on a Rudek and the Bear cartoon related to the Polish seizure of Galicia (a region of Ukraine) in 1920, when Russia annexed Crimea last year. Polish history is often neglected, but I feel it is key to understanding modern European history, and that is part of my reasons for setting my comics there. Q: What are the advantages of using animals to communicate the story? A: I’m a firm believer in anthropomorphism for a couple reasons. Animal characters can be universally relatable. If a character looks like a fox or a cat or a bear, the reader doesn’t have to be the same age, or ethnicity, or even gender to feel a connection to that character. Also, animal characters are already familiar to most readers, due to centuries of folklore and cultural knowledge. As a writer, I don’t have to waste time establishing a character as a crafty, insolent, charismatic rogue—I can cast a fox, and most readers would already know what to expect. Q: What’s on the horizon for you… would you like to publish another graphic novel? A: The book I’ve published is just the beginning—Rudek and the Bear: Volume I. I hope to put out future volumes of Rudek as well as three or four volumes of Żużel and the Fox. That will probably take me the next 20 years.

Then during workshop, I got to scribble all over Jenna Warner’s whiteboard. Both of our classes are in the middle of My Name is Asher Lev. We had the students look closely at Picasso’s Guernica, which is discussed in the novel. The students “read” the painting to memorize it as best as they could, and redraw it from memory. Then—to bring home the scale and energy of the painting—the students told me what details to include as I redrew the painting on the entire whiteboard. During Morning Meeting, I had the chance to read an outstanding student poem in front of the School community. Anyway—not bad for a morning's work. Being invited into your classrooms, your presentations, your brainstorming sessions have made me a better teacher. And it’s made my first year here very personally fulfilling. For the first time, I have truly felt that my two lives are becoming integrated—my creative life and my teaching life. So—thank you all, and the English department especially, for welcoming me into a teaching environment where I feel like I can be myself. And where being myself, and pursuing my creative interests, is not only welcome, but expected of me as a teacher. Peter

Love of Animals Inspires Book by

Barbara Clark

Barbara Clark leads a double life. Members of the MBS community know her as the friendly and dedicated Assistant to Headmaster Peter J. Caldwell. Outside of campus, she is a devoted animal lover and freelance writer who recently published her first children’s book, Sir Pillsbury— The Canine Communicator: A Biscuit Tale of Learning. The delightful book, intended for third and fourth graders, tells the story of Sir Pillsbury, a Labrador Retriever who senses discord in his household and devises ingenious canine means to bring the family back into harmony. “In a world overflowing with technology and devices, we must not lose sight of the importance of the human element and face-to-face communication,” said Clark, hinting at the moral of the story. The book closes with a substantial glossary and a photo of the real Sir Pillsbury of Kensington, “Biscuit.” Although Biscuit passed away more than a decade ago, his memory lives on in this new soft-cover book, which emphasizes the importance of good verbal communication. Clark said that it took more than a year to produce the book, even after the writing was completed. “Doing a children’s book is an extremely arduous process. There are so many people involved and so many pieces to the project,” said Clark, who not only wrote the book but designed it as well. The pencil drawings which help bring Biscuit’s message to life were created by illustrator Christina M. Maniet of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Clark has been a freelance writer for more than 20 years, and her love of both dogs and horses has influenced her writing in many ways. She has written horse show columns, business profiles, promotional and public relations pieces, as well as newsletter articles and fiction. She began riding at the age of 14, and spent many years of her life as an equestrian, both for pleasure and competition. She also has experience as a breeder of show horses, as well as Labrador Retrievers, and has been a guest speaker in the Equine Studies Department at Centenary College. Recently, Sir Pillsbury—The Canine Communicator was approved for inclusion in the children’s collection at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison.

Dear Morristown-Beard School Family and Friends, On behalf of Headmaster Peter J. Caldwell and the Board of Trustees, we are pleased to present the 2014-2015 Annual Report. As this report illustrates, the MBS community—including current and former parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends— once again joined together to promote our School’s worthy aspirations with remarkable philanthropic support. For the fourth year in a row, the Morristown-Beard Fund surpassed the one million dollar mark, an important achievement for our School community. Additional support of capital projects, named scholarships and awards, and planned gifts also highlighted another record-setting year for MBS. This exceptional philanthropy fuels our School’s progress, collectively influencing many areas of the student experience—and MBS students continue to illustrate the impact of your investment in their education. Recently, fourteen students were inducted into Mu Alpha Theta, a national mathematics honor society. This accomplishment is indicative of our School’s ongoing academic ascent. Additionally, MBS students achieved significant success for their work on the stage and on the playing fields. The MBS production of Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark won two notable awards at the Montclair State University Theatre Night Awards, which recognizes excellence in the production of plays in New Jersey high schools. Meanwhile, the Boys Lacrosse Team won the State Prep B Championship to cap off yet another season of success. Student achievement at Morristown-Beard School clearly signifies how your support of MBS is an investment with impact. Your thoughtful philanthropy enables our School to venture past the educational conventions of today into tomorrow’s promising academic landscape. Thanks to you, MBS continues to powerfully prepare our students for higher learning and for life. We are most thankful for your kind support, and we look forward to another year of success at Morristown-Beard School. With gratitude,

…because the simple act of your participation unlocks additional support for talented Morristown-Beard School students. Why is participation in the Morristown-Beard Fund (our School’s annual fund) so vitally important? There are many important reasons why—including that every dollar raised through the MB Fund goes directly toward improving the student experience— yet one that is often overlooked is the positive impact of participation on external support. By making a gift to the MB Fund, you raise the participation rate for your particular constituency (current or past parent, alumni, grandparent, faculty/staff, or friend of MBS). Because many foundations use annual fund participation rates as a key factor when deciding to award educational grants to MBS, your participation holds the

power to generate significant external support. Foundations want to build upon our community’s strong charitable efforts. Thus, it’s simple—if you give to MBS, then they’ll give to MBS! Please consider putting down this great issue of Crimson for a moment and making a gift by using the enclosed envelope, by calling 973-532-7579, or by visiting our secure website at www.mbs. net/annualfund. Multiply the impact of your support for MBS students through the power of participation!

As always, thank you for your kind support of the Morristown-Beard Fund!


You’ve Got a Friend: Lifelong School Friendships “Tah-dah!” When Robin Reynolds Rockafellow ’55 and Peggy Pattyson Greene ’55 phone one another, the conversation opens with “Tah-dah!” “No matter where in the world we are, if we pick up the phone and hear ‘Tah-dah!’ we know who it is,” Robin said. The long-time Beard friends’ ritual started in the late 1960s when Robin’s toddler daughter would greet Peggy with—well—“Tah-dah!” “She heard it from Garfield the Cat,” Peggy said. Robin and Peggy were friends at Beard, but the friendship deepened about 12 years after graduation when they became neighbors. “I had moved from Kansas to New Canaan. Robin insisted that I join Newcomers, which I did. Robin helped me meet people and find bridge and tennis games in Connecticut,” Peggy said. Peggy soon relocated to Illinois, but the friendship continued to strengthen. Robin became godmother to Peggy’s youngest child. Years later, when Robin’s husband of 55 years died, Peggy visited from Illinois: “She keeps me supplied with hugs of all kinds,” Robin said. Robin and Peggy discussed their friendship: “When you only see someone once a year and talk on the phone occasionally, how wonderful that you know each other so well and have shared so much that you can just go forward, not needing any history,” Robin said. Many MBS friendships also deepen after graduation. Ask Lynne Saliba Moronski ’90, Dr. Lenise Cummings ’90 and Mark Weissenreider ’91. Lynne and Lenise were study buddies and part of a circle of students in the MBS library every afternoon (they were awaiting 5:30 p.m. rides home from their Dads). Lynne and Mark both sang in chorus and Mark taught Lynne how to work theater light and sound boards. Lynne and Mark were also part of a group who went to Lynne’s prom together. Fast forward a few years and the two friends were part of a group 64 Crimson

assembled to introduce Lynne to Sean Moronski, destined to be her future husband. “After Sean and I dated for three years, I asked Mark to vet him one more time. Mark promised that I was making a good choice,” Lynne said. “Mark was a reader at my wedding and came to the hospital to hold my first baby when she was born. We get together for dinner about twice a year these days plus—we don’t remember why—for Chinese New Year,” Lynne continued. “I know I can call on him anytime for advice. He’s my closest male friend.” “Even if we don’t see each other that often, when we do, we start up again seamlessly right where we left off,” Mark added. “Our MBS friendships are our second family,” Lynne continued. A sisterly friendship defines the bond between Lynne and Lenise Cummings. “Lenise and I have long made a special effort to see one another during college breaks, between jobs, during travel to the West coast, family illnesses, the birth of my two children, and now the birth of Lenise's first child,” Lynne said. Lenise, a geriatric physician living in St. Louis, concurred: “Lynne always works with my crazy schedule when I visit New Jersey. We have seen each other in airports and hospitals,” Lenise said. “Over the years, we have discussed almost every topic,” Lynne said. “I know that I can count on her.” “Older friends see you in a ‘3-dimensional’ perspective,” Lenise said. “We spent considerable time together in school, shared the awkwardness of maturation, tested the waters of independence together and have seen new adult lives develop. We’ve been a part of each other’s special moments— like graduations and weddings. “There is no awkwardness or judgment.” Robin, Peggy and Lynne were among the many alumni who enjoyed Reunion 2015. Please return to campus for reunions and share your memories and thoughts about School friends in Crimson Class Notes or the MBS Facebook page.


In Memoriam Katrina (Trina) Leeb Debevoise, ‘44, May 24, 2015, age 88. Trina was born in Orange, NJ, and grew up in South Orange. While at Beard’s, Trina’s parents opened their home to the son and daughter of a British Naval officer, two of the thousands of children sent from Great Britain to escape World War II bombings. The daughter, Patricia Jeans McAlpine ’44, attended Beard’s for four years; Trina and the Jean’s children were lifelong friends. Trina graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Vassar College before attending the Radcliff Publishing Course. She was an editor for the Columbia University Bureau of Publications and the Commonwealth Fund, and continued to hold strict standards of proper English usage all her life. Trina married Dickinson R. Debevoise, a future U.S. District Judge, in 1951. A few years later, the couple moved to Short Hills, NJ where they raised their four children and lived for 49 years before moving to Summit. Trina enjoyed sailing and picnics with family and friends at Mere Point, ME, where her family had a cottage. After her father’s death, Trina managed her parents’ dairy farm in Gladstone, NJ. Trina was active in St. Stephens’ Episcopal Church, serving on their board and singing in the choir. She was a volunteer for Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan New Jersey, a longtime member of the Overlook Medical Center Twig, and enjoyed her local reading group. Trina’s husband, four daughters, two sons-in-law, seven grandchildren and three step-grandchildren survive her. Peter Lambert Knight ’44, October 12, 2014 ,age 88. Peter served in World II, enlisting in the Navy at age 17, shortly after his Morristown graduation. During the Battle of Okinawa, he was on a battleship that was struck by a Japanese kamikaze bomber and endured some hours in the Pacific before rescue. After the war, he graduated from Middlebury College then reenlisted to serve a two-year tour in the Navy during the Korean War. He worked in management with ALCOA for 35 years. With his wife Mary Belle and two daughters and a son, he lived in many places in the country before retiring to West Palm Beach, FL, Mary Belle’s hometown. There, he was a realtor with Coldwell Banker and enjoyed sailing. Peter was a 30-year member of the Navy League and was a board member when he died. Mary Belle,

his children, four grandchildren and one great grandchild survive him. Carol Lees Baldwin Mixter ’45. At The Beard School, Carol was a class officer, sang in the glee club, and played on many teams, including varsity hockey. She earned her B.A. at Mount Holyoke College. With William Baldwin, her first husband of 59 years, she had three daughters and one son. With her second husband, David Mixter, Carol moved to Vero Beach, FL in 2010. As of 2008, she had retired as president of Corporate Art Services of New Hampshire. Her daughters and their families survive her. Joan Freiday Edwards ’48, March 19, 2015, age 85. At Beard’s, Joan was president of the dance club. Joan had three daughters who, along with their families, survive her. Her husband Hal died in 1999. At the time of her death, Joan was living in Melbourne Beach, FL. Her interests included travel. Linda Beck Wilson Mihleder ’58, February 12, 2015, age 75. Linda’s skills as an equestrian and singer were recognized while at Beard. She later attended Vassar College, the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Denver. A music teacher, she was married for 23 years. Her husband predeceased her. Her brother, two step children and two step grandchildren survive her. At the time of her death, Linda lived in Hot Springs Village, AR. There, she was a member of the Village Bible Church and active in the local DAR, Tennis association, the Village Chorale plus Stonecroft Ministries and PEO, a philanthropic organization helping women with scholarships, grants and loans. William Henry McBride, former faculty, May 11, 2015, age 90. A beloved educator at Morristown-Beard School, Bill served as Assistant Headmaster and instructor in chemistry and earth science. When Bill retired in 1996, his 19 years of service with the School were recognized with the establishment of the William H. McBride Prize, given annually to a deserving graduate “whose academic vigor, enthusiasm, and curiosity serve both as an example to other students, and as a reminder of the spirit and dedication of Mr. McBride.”

William H. McBride

Bill’s enduring campus legacy is enduring indeed: he was a driving force behind the MBS Time Capsule project. Inspired by the 1985-86 approach of Halley’s Comet, Bill worked closely with then Student Government Association President David Hedley III ’87. With the support, advice and help of many MBS faculty and staff, the successful burying of the MBS Time Capsule took place on February 10, 1986. The capsule contained school history and memorabilia, photographs, and most meaningfully, student essays addressing what the students of the future might want to know. Before joining MBS in 1977, Bill taught at the Montclair Academy, McQuade High School, and Brooklyn Prep. In retirement, Bill continued to teach as a substitute teacher at Wall High School and tutored students in chemistry and science. Bill earned his undergraduate degree in philosophy and chemistry from Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL in 1950, and his master's degree in chemistry from Holy Cross University in 1953. Bill joined the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). He was ordained to the priesthood in 1956, and served in that capacity for the next 15 years. An active member of St. Catharine's Church, Bill sang with the church choir. Bill was predeceased by his parents, Dr. Hesser G. McBride and Alice Hooley McBride, and his siblings, Mary Alice Reider, Hesser G. McBride Jr. and John F. McBride. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 43 years, Regina M. Burns McBride. He is also survived by his many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and greatnephews, who, along with their friends, could always rely on Uncle Bill for guidance with a tough chemistry assignment. Crimson

Memorable Teaching Experience:

Without a doubt, my Constitutional Law class. The students get to talk about current events and learn how to create and evaluate arguments for multiple sides of an issue or dilemma. Good to see young people taking in information and forming their own opinions, while respecting the views of others.

Christiansen ’02 Makes Waves in Panama

In May, Neil Christiansen’02 returned to campus to speak about Give & Surf, a non-profit educational and community development organization that he founded in Panama. With the support of a team of volunteers, Give & Surf has been able to provide hands-on assistance programs to the indigenous Ngobe people of Bocas del Toro. Christiansen said he looks forward to working with the Morristown-Beard community in the near future—including a service trip to Panama during the summer of Homecoming 2014 2016!

Thirty students from the MBS theater program attended Disney's Aladdin on Broadway this spring and met the cast members. Kathryn Allison ’10, who made her Broadway debut in the show in March, arranged for the discussion. The performers shared stories about their experiences with the show and offered advice to the MBS students about pursuing careers in the arts. 68 Crimson

“Journey—The Art of Jason Anderson ’05” was on display in the upper and lower lobbies of Founders Hall this spring, highlighting the artist’s path from art student, to apprentice, designer, and world traveler. The exhibit also showcased his emergence as “Jason Michael,” a world-class designer of handbags and leather accessories. During Alumni Reunion in June, Anderson was able to give a guided tour of the exhibit, answer questions, and speak about his artistic vision.

Alumni Moments

MBS Students visit Broadway Alumna

When I see any student achieve something that matters to him or her. Not every student I work with becomes All-State or wins an award at graduation. It’s the little victories that happen every day that build confidence in these young people and push them to keep working for more.

Alumni Panel Discusses Arts & Entrepreneurship

The MBS Alumni Board hosted an Alumni Career Panel event for current students on April 8, 2015. The panelists, David Kramer ’69, Lindsay Barrett George ’70, Gwen Whiting ’94, and Brian Egan ’08, discussed their career paths, showed examples of their work, and spoke about the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
