TABLE OF CONTENTS
from the head of school Dear Friends, I recently had the opportunity to attend a conference that brought Chinese and American business leaders together to explore investment opportunities in Northwest Ohio. I was standing near the head of the buffet visiting with a local business person when a large group arrived and flooded the area. My colleague and I felt like rocks in a stream as a steady flow of people swirled around us, heading toward the food. We searched for, but were unable to find, the beginning of a line, and then realized that we simply needed to jump in. Soon we were swept along with the flow toward the food and the camaraderie of our new friends. I am struck by what an apt metaphor that experience is for the climate of change we find in schools today. From technology to global integration there are more opportunities now to enhance students’ educational experiences than ever. All schools, public and private, are being challenged to rethink what we do. As you no doubt know, and will read about in this issue of The Valley, Maumee Valley has a tradition of embracing new ideas, diversifying, and adapting to the times. The plan to construct campus housing is just the latest example of our school’s willingness to take entrepreneurial leaps when it is mission appropriate and benefits our students. Surfing the tides of change is only one responsibility of school leadership, another is honoring traditions. One such tradition at Maumee Valley is the generosity of our alumni, not just with monetary contributions, but also with time and wisdom. Erie Chapman ‘61, recognizes that there is value in the diversity of ideas and so he has created the Erie Chapman FoundationRenaissance Student Award. He presented the award to the first recipient, Linnea Johnson ‘14. In his talk Erie encouraged the students to “unpack their own gifts” and to avoid making decisions based on fear, but to “listen to the energy of love.” Erie reminds us that even as we surge forward, it is always important to remember the timeless lessons of the past. Best, Gary Boehm Head of School

McMillan-Comeaux off to China
Fifth grade girls conference champions
Athnie McMillan-Comeaux ‘12 was selected to receive a 2012-13 National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) scholarship. The NSLI-Y Scholarship is sponsored by the U.S. government through the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State. American Councils manages the overall operations of the scholarship program. This scholarship is for summer in the Chinese language. The program took place in China. The NSLI-Y scholarship selection process is highly competitive. Each year, more than 3,000 students apply from all over the nation, and only 100 are chosen to participate.
2012 athletic success
Grant Macpherson and Stephen Shin ‘12 congratulate each other
The 2011-12 athletic season was a tremendous success. In individual sports, Hawks could be found on the All State Tennis and Golf teams. Additionally, the girls’ field hockey team made it to the elite-eight round in the State Tournament, and the boys basketball team finished the season as conference, sectional, and district champions (22-2). But the success wasn’t limited to the high school sports. Last year fifth grade girls basketball team finished its undefeated season as regular and conference tournament champions. Coached by UI teacher Chris Fischl, the team finished the season 12-0. Fischl attributes the team’s success to the girls’ work ethic and selflessness “They did a great job coming together and understanding each other’s strengths and talents.”
Maumee Valley student develops app
Jonathan Buchanan, a fifth grader at Maumee Valley, was frustrated that the only time he could play his favorite game, ChipTrading, was during math class. Not allowing life’s small complications to stand in the way, he developed a new app and submitted it to Apple for approval. In May 2012, Apple made ChipTrading available for download for 99 cents, and 10-year-old Jonathan became perhaps the world’s youngest person to independently develop his own computer application. “My app, ChipTrading, helps kids my age and younger learn place value in math. I wanted to create this app because I play a physical version of the game with my friends a lot in math class, but we could only play it there. Then I had the idea to create an app so we could play it in other places and I could share the game with others” says Jonathan. At age 6, Jonathan had an interest in computers and web pages. His father, Matt, taught him how to build a basic website. “About a year later, I decided to learn a language that my dad didn’t know about. Three-quarters of a year later, I said I wanted to make an iOS app because I only was able to make websites and I wanted to have a new challenge. So we ordered an iOS book and I started studying the iOS programming language.” After spending time learning the iOS operating system, Jonathan created several programs that he beta tested and honed his programming skills. When he developed ChipTrading, it took him about three weeks to complete the coding and design. His parents, Renee and Matt, did not assist Jonathan with the coding or design, but offered their help when it came time to submit the finished work to Apple. “One of the most difficult programming challenges was getting the logic of the game to work right. It was tough, because I had to figure out all the formulas myself,” Jonathan said. ChipTrading is currently only available as an iPhone app, but Jonathan plans to create a universal version that includes both iPhone and iPad versions of the game. Jonathan’s next project is to enhance his social journaling platform, Daystream. This integrative platform will eventually allow ChipTrading players to post their scores to online Daystream journals.
jaffee new director of admission Jarin Jaffee, Maumee Valley’s Director of College Advising, Co-Director of the Global Education Program Advising and Dean of Students for the past seven years, began a new position this year at Maumee Valley as the Director of Admission. Jarin received his bachelor’s degree from Kenyon College and earned his Master of Science in Administration from the University of Notre Dame.

download the ChipTrading Game ChipTrading is easy to learn and play. Roll the dice and allocate virtual chips in the color/value columns to match the running grand total. Each column is limited to a maximum number of chips, forcing you to use chips of higher value when appropriate. Once satisfied with the positions of your chips, check your answer. The game provides immediate feedback by letting you roll again if the chip allocation is correct. If incorrect, you can simply reallocate your chips and check your new answer. Play against yourself by seeing how high you can take your grand total before making a mistake or how far you can get in a set period of time. For a little competition, play with friends - see who gets to the highest value purple chips first or who gets the farthest in an agreedupon time period.”

auction 2012 all aboard... the maumee valley express! The Maumee Valley Express pulled into the Toledo Amtrak Train Station on May 19th. It was a spectacular evening as the Maumee Valley community gathered to celebrate with an evening of fun while supporting the school. Co-Chairs Virginia Secor Shaw and Renee Buchanan welcomed over 350 people to the event – current parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents and friends. Fifth Third Bank and Gilmore, Jasion and Mahler, Ltd were Virginia Shaw and Renee Buchanan
title sponsors for the night’s festivities. The event netted $250,000 to support school operations. We are grateful for everyone who bid on the 300+ silent and live auction items and to the 281 alumni, alumni parents, current parents, and local businesses who donated items to the silent and live auctions. We are grateful to all our hardworking volunteers who helped make the evening such a success, and to all who donated auction items. Guests raised their paddles in support of several improvements to The

annual reporT Dear Friends, This past year at Maumee Valley has been one of the best in the school’s 128 year history. Just a small sample of the tremendous opportunities and experiences in which Maumee Valley students participated are: • The school now has 1:1 technology with an iPad2 issued to every student in the Middle and Upper schools and the teachers have received the support needed to create amazing learning experiences with this technology in each student’s hand. • The school’s athletic program achieved tremendous success across a variety of sports and grades including an Elite Eight Tournament finish in the Girls Field Hockey and Conference, Sectional, and District Championships in Varsity Boys Basketball. • Seventeen percent of the students in our Senior Class were recognized as National Merit Scholars. • Six students were selected for All-State Orchestra. • The Quiz Bowl team won both the TAAC and Academic Challenge competitions and competed in the National Tournament. These opportunities were only made possible through the generosity of nearly 900 donors to Maumee Valley in fiscal year 2012. The annual fund exceeded its goal of $250,000 with the highest percent of alumni participation in the school’s history. The special event, All Aboard The Maumee Valley Express, not only reached its fundraising goal, but was also well attended by Maumee Valley’s current family and representatives of the Maumee Valley community: alumni, alumni parents, former board members and former faculty. With the use of mobile bidding, alumni and friends from across the country were able to participate, broadening the school’s base of support.

between the traditional and the global At the heart of Maumee Valley’s identity is both a loyalty to its history and tradition and the commitment to meet the needs of students living in a changing world. It is no surprise that after 128 years Maumee Valley’s community is thriving and reflects the mission “to enable students to become enlightened, compassionate, and contributing citizens of our global community.” The school community has grown and evolved in leaps and bounds from the changes that have taken place over the course of our long history.

Change hasn’t always arrived at Maumee Valley in the form of new buildings and alterations to the athletics program. Rather, the greatest legacy of change is written on the faces of the students, whose diversity spans the globe and bridges the gaps between various social groups and classes.
a global education
feature Maumee Valley’s first major evolution occurred in 1934, the year the Smead School for Girls moved to Reynolds Road and re-formed as a country day school. Maumee Valley also became a coeducational institution that year. The integration of boys into a girls’ finishing school was the primary impetus for strengthening the academic curriculum. Since then, Maumee Valley’s academic rigor has been a hallmark of the institution and the benefit of every graduate.
In the 1960s, when the nation was in upheaval over civil rights, Maumee Valley again evolved to meet the changing times. It became the first nonboarding independent school in the country to adopt ABC (A Better Chance) - a national program that gave financial assistance to minority, public school students to help them fund a college preparatory education. It was during this time that Maumee Valley first admitted African American, Asian, and Hispanic students, a demographic that comprises 22 percent of the student body today.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Maumee Valley experienced a generous influx of cultural diversity from Middle Eastern and Asian families who came to the Toledo area because of the Medical College of Ohio. By 1984, 100 years into the school’s history, 31 percent of Maumee Valley students identified themselves as non-Caucasian. Today, more than 40 percent of students are of an ethnic group other than European American/Caucasian.
Maumee Valley is now in the midst of yet another wave of evolution. Since its inception in 2008, the International Student Program (ISP), born out

recruit bright and talented students from around the globe. But, like everything else of value at Maumee Valley, this latest development has its roots in a long and rich history.
In 1986, under Head of School Peter Stevens, Maumee Valley began admitting international scholars through the American Secondary Schools for International Students and Teachers (ASSIST). Since then, the school has received 41 international students through ASSIST, a program that brings two students a year from Europe. Additionally, Maumee Valley has benefited from a long-standing partnership with Ekebyskolan High School in Sala, Sweden, which sends an Upper School exchange student every Maumee Valley was the first independent non-boarding school in the country to admit students through the ABC program

And yet, Maumee Valley continues to push boundaries. The first major achievement for the ISP was the formation of two school partnerships with Yanshan University in Qinhuangdao, China, and Golegio Steiner School in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Both of these sister school relationships represent

By 2009, the ISP was up and running and a board task force was established to give structure and oversight to the program. According to Director of Admission Jarin Jaffee, who helped drive the program early on, “We did not go into this thinking that this would become a full international program. We wanted to better serve our mission to prepare globally minded students.”

Over the past few years, the ISP task force considered and reviewed
admission requirements, student handbooks, host family and travel policies, recruitment and marketing materials, and housing needs for the program. The task force also studied enrollment and revenue figures

related to the ISP, since program goals include increased revenue for the school. Another major achievement for the ISP was the addition of a fulltime international recruiter in the Admission Office and an Upper School
population has grown from five or six students a year through ASSIST to 12 students enrolled in 2009, 17 in 2010, to 27 in 2011. This academic year, 30 international students from six countries are attending Maumee Valley, enrolled in grades eight to twelve. The goal is to enroll an additional five international students per year until there are 40 international students in the Upper School, which comprises 20 percent of its population.
“These developments reflect our changing needs, as well as trends in international education across the country,” says ISP committee chair Shelly Orenstein. “We have spoken to many other independent schools that are experiencing growing interest from the international community. Universities, too, are working with increasing numbers of international students, and our work is informed by what is going on at the college level as well.”

Maumee Valley also benefits from the increased revenue brought in by international student tuition. Currently, an international student’s tuition is roughly $16,000 more than the domestic rate. This difference is due to the additional cost of housing students with host families. Each Maumee Valley

host family receives an $8,000 stipend which is funded by international student tuition dollars.
Beyond the numbers, these students bring diverse and valuable personal experiences into Maumee Valleyâ€™s classrooms. Last year, a Maumee Valley international student presented his senior paper on immigration, and debated the assumption that immigration should be limited. His point of view was shaped by his experiences growing up in China as well as his years in the United States. Students hearing his presentation were rendering of new RESIDENCE HALL
better able to engage in this complex global issue through the personal experience of a friend and peer. These and many other experiences are what make the ISP successful not only for international students but for the entire student and family community at Maumee Valley.
Responding to the demand to expand this program, Maumee Valley recently announced plans to offer on-campus housing by building a 28bed residence hall to accommodate boarding students. Not only will the new building house the schoolâ€™s growing international student population, it will also provide an independent school experience for families outside of the local area and children of alumni who no longer live in Toledo.

Maumee Valley continues to prepare students for lives and jobs in the 21st century and the diverse and increasingly global world they will encounter after they graduate. These students will need to communicate respectfully with co-workers, leaders, and business associates from all over the world in the course of their careers, and the exposure they receive at Maumee Valley to other cultures and points of view will help ensure they have the skills and attitudes they need to succeed.

alumni The 2012-13 Alumni Council slate was also presented to the alumni gathering for approval. The council slate received a unanimous vote of consent.
Following the Smead Luncheon, many alumni and friends joined the family of Lyman Spitzer ’67 on the Larry Anning Lawn, outside the new Upper School, for a formal dedication of the Lyman Spitzer memorial bench. Lyman’s classmates and wife, Patrice Spitzer, raised money to build a permanent memorial at Maumee Valley after Lyman passed away in 2011.
a brief HISTORY OF the SMEAD LUNCHEON
Carol Hampe Bentley ‘49 and Grace Ludwig ‘16
Founder’s Day was a tradition started in May 1908 at the Smead School for Girls by Mary Smead. It was a day set aside to commemorate not only the memory and ideals of the school’s co-founder, Miss Marian Smead, who died in 1889, but also to imbue alumni, faculty, and students with renewed pride and energy. Every year on that day, students, faculty and alumni gathered to listen to Mary Smead’s account of the Smead School’s move from Batavia, N.Y., to Toledo in the summer of 1884. (A Centennial History, 1984).
When the Smead School eventually moved to its current location in 1934
chuck and karen lundholm
and became Maumee Valley Country Day School, the Founder’s Day tradition continued on as the Smead Luncheon. For the past 78 years, this gathering has brought members of our alumni community together in celebration of our school’s long history and cherished values. It is also the annual meeting of Maumee Valley’s Alumni Association.

betty mauk ‘36 Betty Mauk, an untiring and persistent champion of an unobstructed downtown Toledo riverfront accessible to all and a Francophile nonpareil who with her crêperie brought a touch of Paris to Promenade Park, which was largely her creation, died June 26th in Kingston Residence of Sylvania. She was 93 years old. Mrs. Mauk was born Dec. 15, 1918, in Toledo, the youngest of eight. Her mother, Josephine Wright Blair, died during her birth. Her father, Albert Blair, Jr., whose father founded a family-run coal business, died five months later in the post-World War I flu pandemic that swept the globe. Several of the older Blair children went to live with their Uncle Jim and Aunt Mary at their home on Scottwood Avenue in the Old West End. Betty was born into the high society of Toledo, during the heyday of the fashionable Old West End. She traveled in the high society circles of Ottawa Hills and Perrysburg, which included The Blade’s late Society Editor Dorothy Rainie, among others.
betty mauk ‘36 (1918-2012)
Mrs. Mauk had a privileged upbringing, attending the former Smead School for Girls, which became Maumee Valley Country Day School in 1934, and the elite Connecticut boarding school Westover School in Middlebury. She also attended Mount Vernon College in Washington. Mrs. Mauk was 18 years old when she made her first trip to France, an Atlantic Ocean voyage with her Uncle Jim and Aunt Mary Blair, and returned at least 50 times over the course of her life. The first public flowering of her interest in all things French was her founding in 1964 of Alliance Française in Toledo, which emphasized the teaching and appreciation of French language and culture. The French consul general in Detroit in 1973 presented her a silver medal for her efforts on behalf of the French government. “She felt France was her second home,” her daughter said.
Mrs. Mauk was also a member of the Junior League of Toledo. She was a former docent at the Toledo Museum of Art and took classes there. She had a particular talent for sketching. She liked jazz and the Toledo Symphony. She was a French cook and tended a French garden. And she continued to exercise and take ballet at the University of Toledo until she was 80. “She was a multicultural person,” her daughter said.
“She had a wider view, and through dogged effort and persuasive and persistent phone calls to decision-makers and community leaders, including Paul Block Jr., the late co-publisher of The Blade, Promenade Park became a community attraction. She spent much time during that period hectoring and cajoling public officials into taking her calls and making her dream a reality. She loved Toledo and wanted everybody, anybody, of all levels of life, to enjoy the waterfront,” her daughter said. “She wanted to have the waterfront be seen from Summit Street, so everybody could enjoy the beauty of the river, visually.” Her work to sustain the beauty of the waterfront continued for the rest of her life, even though it has not remained unobstructed, despite her vision. Mrs. Mauk and her husband, William, married Oct. 18, 1941. He died March 13, 2007. Surviving are her sons, William, Jr., and Blair Mauk; daughters, Catherine Mather and Becky Powell; seven grandchildren, and two greatgranddaughters.
Mrs. Mauk was extremely devoted to Toledo and improving its aesthetics. In the early 1970s, Mrs. Mauk contacted the Toledo urban renewal agency with an idea for a riverfront park. Promenade Park opened in 1972 as a small parcel at the foot of Madison Avenue.
William Rheinfrank Foley ‘45 William Rheinfrank Foley ‘45 lived from July 7, 1927, to April 21, 2012. He was known by his friends and loved ones to be generous with his kindness and love to every life he touched. Will was born in Perrysburg, Ohio to Dr. Norman and Virginia Foley. He grew up in Perrysburg, graduated from Maumee Valley in 1945, earned his bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University and served as a Navy corpsman during WW II and the Korean War. He often reminisced about the adventures he had traveling the world with his grandmother, humorous and unusual experiences he had while serving in the Navy, and fond memories of his frat years. Will’s professional life included careers in banking and retail. His passion for connecting with and helping people shined in every occupation. After retirement, Will worked as a senior assistant even though he was older than some of his clients. He joked it was his job to remind folks how to find their “fountain of youth.” Will also held the honor of being one of Santa’s helpers for several years, insuring every child he met had their wishes reported directly to the North Pole. Will was a member of AA and maintained 17 years of sobriety. This was an accomplishment he never took for granted and he was humbly willing to share with all whom he met. Will had a gift for making perfect strangers feel as if they were old friends with him. Never too shy or busy to say hello and ask you how you were doing, he was a wonderful listener and an even better talker. His colorful (and sometime off-color) stories were full of humor, self-effacement, and joie de vivre. Will loved life and filled his life with love. He enjoyed singing loudly, dancing outrageously, eating delicious food, traveling, and most of all spending time with those he loved. He was always quick to offer an ear to listen, a snack to eat, a joke to laugh at, or a story to learn from and he had a talent for knowing which was appropriate for each moment. Whether it was with his wife, children, or grandchildren, Will loved wholeheartedly, unashamedly, and selflessly. His smile, his laughter, and passion for love and life will live on the hearts and souls of everyone who knew him.
William Rheinfrank Foley ‘45 (1927-2012)
Barbara Burke Lennihan Honey ‘49 Barbara (Babs) Burke Lennihan was born in Concord, MA, the third child of Richard and Dorothy Lennihan. Her father was a business man, managing, at various times and in various places, a woollen mill and a Macy’s store and he was for a time the head of the Small Business Association. They lived in Boston and for a time in Toledo, Ohio. But from before Barbara was born, the Lennihans had a house on Martha’s Vineyard where they would go every summer. This was her (and her children’s) spiritual home, her Turangawaewae, where she learned to sail and made fast, lifetime friends. Burke (as she preferred to be known as an adult) attended Maumee Valley Country Day School, Baldwin School for Girls in Bryn Mawr, PA and Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. She majored in drama and it was here that she met Dorothy Archibald of Lowry Bay, Wellington, New Zealand. When she finished college she travelled with her friend Dorothy around Europe for the summer. She then joined Dorothy on the boat to New Zealand, stopping in India and Ceylon. While staying with the Archibalds in Wellington, she got a job as a health assistant and was saving the fare to go home. She joined Wellington Repertory Theatre where she met Eric Honey. They were married in Cambridge, MA on New Year’s Day, 1955. They made their home in Paramata, New Zealand, where they lived for over 40 years. They had three children: Richard (a materials engineer) now living in Rhode Island, Tommy (dean of an art college) and Sandra (elementary school teacher), both of Auckland, New Zealand. Once the children were at school, Burke became a substitute teacher and then a math teacher at a local high school, Porirua College. She rose to become Head of Department before leaving to teach at the Correspondence School, a government provider of distance education.
Barbara Burke Lennihan Honey ‘49 (1931 – 2012)
Burke was a Protofeminist. She could do anything before the marching in the streets when they said girls can do anything. When the children grew too big to fit in a one bedroom and they decided to add on to the house, Burke made a model and took it to the architects who duly drew it up. Dick Tuppin, a neighbor and builder, built it and Burke became his hammer hand. She took night classes in joinery and made bedroom cabinets. She taught herself to knit and sew and make models. She maintained her interest in the theatre, actively participating as lighting designer, actor, and director with Mana Little Theatre, and leading several high school productions. Burke and Eric in retirement moved to Paraparaumu, New Zealand. Eric died in 2009 and in 2012 Burke suffered a series of strokes and moved to Auckland to be closer to Tommy and Sandra. She died peacefully on July 20, 2012, at Elizabeth Knox Rest Home, survived by her three children and 10 grandchildren.

He graduated from Maumee Valley in 1995, and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in 1999, and a master’s degree in international diplomacy from the Fletcher School of International Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in 2007. Sasha was a bon vivant who enjoyed all that life had to offer. He enjoyed cooking, music, entertaining, and living life stylishly. His most recent creative pursuits included learning the French language and crafting silver jewelry, an art he was learning through a local fine arts class. He believed passionately in his friends, in keeping them close, and in cherishing these friendships. He was forever a funny man; if you were his friend, you would often fall victim to his practical jokes. He had a brilliant sense of humor and wrote numerous witty and insightful articles on contemporary issues encouraging his readers to consider a unique perspective. An avid writer, Sasha leaves behind hundreds of pieces, both fiction and non-fiction, much of it dedicated to humanitarian issues close to his heart. He wrote for Examiner.com as the DC South Asia Foreign Policy Examiner, and hosted a podcast dedicated to issues of his choosing called “Striking the Root.” He sought to encourage greater education about human rights issues ignored by the mainstream media. These included causes such as reducing gender-based violence and trafficking of women, and explored the connections between modern ethno-political conflict and the abuses of colonialism. A collection of his creative writings can be found on his blog, “Count Twist.” Sasha lived in Pasadena where he spent much of his free time as a political fundraiser for the Obama campaign. Sasha’s legacy is the boundless potential and goodness of humanity. He had a magnetic personality that touched everyone he met. His unflinching optimism, energy and passion for life were matched by an unwavering compassion for others. He was an inspiration to those who knew him. We shall all keep Sasha close to our hearts and uphold the principles he exemplified in his short life. Sasha, you have provided so much light to all of us - you will forever burn brightly in our hearts. Memorial contributions in Sasha’s honor can be made to the Sasha G.M. Shaikh Foundation, a foundation dedicated to humanitarian issues important to Sasha. Please contact Maheen Cleaver for more information at email@example.com.
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I will meet you there. -Jalaludin Rumi

Imagine there’s no heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people Living life in peace You, You may say I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will be as one... -John Lennon

raise the weathervane update
Alumni showed an impressive level of commitment to the Raise the Weathervane campaign last fiscal year. More than 460 alumni from every generation made a gift, helping bring the percentage of alumni giving to the annual fund to 21 percent. This is the highest level of alumni giving in the school’s history and we are extremely grateful for everyone’s generosity. The Weathervane is a meaningful piece of Maumee Valley’s educational legacy. Members of the class of 2012 recognized this when they carried on the tradition of being photographed on top of the Smead Building. The Alumni Council also recognizes the significance the Weathervane carries in the hearts of all of our alumni. The Council will continue its work of returning that symbol to the center of alumni outreach and communication. In that spirit, please join us in welcoming the class of 2012 into the Alumni Association of Maumee Valley Country Day School.
