As our school’s Director of Marketing and Communications, I think of the New Hampton School experience with great breadth. Of utmost importance to the future of the school is our brand— what people say about us when we’re not in the room. This external ideation is where the conversation begins. Internally, we continue to communicate with alumni and former parents that have known New Hampton School for many years. Our school recently went through a brand positioning exercise, honing in on what people say about New Hampton School and how we want to be known in the greater world. That feeling which prospective, current, and past families experience when they set foot on campus can be hard to describe. We often hear about our happy students, our welcoming community members, and the description that our school doesn’t feel like other schools. “Why is that?” we ask. Brand positioning work conducted with an outside party, alongside strategic planning surveys, and other self-studies, combined to help us articulate what it is we do so well. A growing topic in education today suggests that when students are healthy and happy, they are at their best to learn and grow. And, simply put, our students are happy. They love their school. Finally articulating “that feeling” which was difficult to pinpoint became clear; at New Hampton School, our students successfully balance wonder and well-being. And, this balance is what sets them on a path toward a fulfilled life. So, how do we balance wonder and well-being? There are many features of our school and programs that help us reach this said outcome. This year’s magazine highlights one of our essential elements— the people. Without dedicated faculty, caring and passionate staff, fulfilled alumni, and students who love their school, we would not be the vibrant, caring, creative community that we are each day.

From Campus Currents highlighting our partnership with the Winnipesaukee Playhouse to alumnus Thomas Motley ’72 who joined us as a featured Alumni in Residence, to Connor Gorman ’11 and Joe Marsh teaming up to lead our Men’s Hockey Program—the people behind the New Hampton School experience make it unique. In this issue of Hamptonia, you will read about how the Strategic Plan advances initiatives that emphasize our people and our programs. Trustee Joe Ardagna ’80 tells us in his feature story about the people who helped him to become a successful restauranteur, and Alicia Hammond ’04 speaks about her work in gender equity and the influential mentors and experiences that have helped shape her journey. It is essential in our school that students are well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities before them. Guided by talented, caring individuals that give endlessly of themselves to their communities, their professional careers, and their loved ones, New Hampton School—and our student experience—is shaped by many hands. As we move toward our 200th anniversary, we have a tremendous opportunity to recognize these people and celebrate all those that have come before us, in addition to the students and families that we touch every day.

The People What has always made New Hampton School special, and what continues to set us apart, is the people. The important adult role models, whose personality, passion, sacrifice, and commitment to this community have contributed to the growth and development of hundreds of students each year. I couldn’t begin to recount all the leaders who came before me—Bud and Jinga Moore, Mark Tilton, Jen Berry—this list goes on and on. These individuals built lasting relationships with students during their time on campus and continued to mentor and guide them as alumni. And then there are the students themselves, who bring personality and character to each and every school year. New Hampton School attracts students from across the globe, with unique interests and talents, who seek a close-knit community that will provide an opportunity. What exactly the opportunity is can be different for each student; it might be the IB Curriculum and the strength of our college advising program, or our animation partnership with The Walt


Disney Family Museum. Perhaps they are drawn to the rich athletic tradition or the opportunities available in both the visual and performing arts. What families are looking for above all else, in my opinion, is for their child to be known and supported. They want their student to be given a chance to show what they are capable of and to be cared for when failure arrives, which is a necessary ingredient for real growth to occur.

few of our wonderful alumni, who have distinguished themselves in their respective fields. They share how the relationships formed and lessons learned on campus continue to resonate with them years later. I hope you will also enjoy the pages depicting important strategic initiatives for the school, designed to strengthen our already robust programs, enhancing the experience for students and adults alike.

By delivering great opportunities for our students, we provide an important foundation upon which our graduates build fulfilled lives. I am fortunate to meet with many of our alumni who represent decades of Huskies. They have pursued varied paths, and reflect fondly on their time at New Hampton as the catalyst for their current success. They recall names like Tom Diehl, Jen McMahon, Jamie Arsenault, Joe Marsh, Adam Tyson and more, whose guidance and support have had a lasting impression.

Thank you for joining us on our exciting journey as we approach our Bicentennial celebration and plan thoughtfully to sustain New Hampton School for the next twohundred years.

The Country Store & The Community The Country Store’s revitalization led to some fun moments throughout the year as it gained a reputation as a new community gathering space with exceptional eats. Here are a few of our favorites.

POP-UP ART GALLERY The Ceramics II class opened an exhibit and holiday sale of their recent work in December. Featured items included high- and low-fire pieces such as plates, mugs, hanging planters and candle holders.

Enliven�g a Tradition

The New Hampton School Country Store

The Country Store, located on Main Street in New Hampton, has been a fixture in the lives of students and the community for many years. Known as Albee’s to a vibrant group of New Hampton School alumni, the stories of sweet treats, salty snacks, warm drinks, and hanging out with friends abound when the store comes up in conversation. Big changes hit our school last fall as the Country Store was renovated, redesigned and replenished with offerings that meet the requests of today’s students and community. The store’s new vibe is a modern coffeehouse atmosphere, complete with stylish furnishings, décor, and comfy corners. In addition to popular ice cream, soda and novelty offerings of the past, the Country Store has updated their menu with our

students in mind. Delicious homemade food and signature sandwiches are complemented by a wide range of local vendor offerings. Students love to drop in before classes, during a free block, or to change up their lunch routine. Originally opened in 1850, the store has always been a part of New Hampton student’s lives. The store itself was privately owned for most of its history and appreciated by the New Hampton community in addition to our students. The last owners of the well-loved store, John and Gloria Beck, approached the school to sell it several years back; and, so, the tradition of providing to our students and the local community continues.

EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION DAYS On more than one occasion Director of Retail Operations Tamara Mann surprised faculty and staff with a free coffee and snack, fueling our grateful, hardworking team with some caffeine and energy!

INTERNATIONAL DAY Tamara offered some delectable Speķa Pīragī (bacon turnovers) in honor of her Latvian roots on International Day. This helped extend the experience of one of our favorite days of the year.

PEER TO PEER Allie Soper brought her life experience, family foundation, and community advocacy to our students and teachers this past fall. Allie guided us through a viewing of the documentary film “If They Had Known,” which educates youth on the risks of current party culture. As stated in the film description, “it is a candid film spoken by kids to kids about the risk of recreationally mixing prescription drugs with alcohol.” Allie’s heartfelt introduction to the film and follow-up commentary were powerful as she spoke from experience having lost her brother in a tragic accident as a result of typical teen party culture and recreational mixing of substances. Allie’s courage and advocacy are exceptional; both in her willingness to speak to her peers about difficult decisions, and the articulate and confident way in which she presented a challenging topic. “I could not be more grateful for New Hampton’s continuous support of my

AUGMENTED REALITY Students and professionals of all ages from around the globe apply to attend the Reality Virtually Hackathon at MIT Media Lab. A year ago, Christopher Fridlington ’19 was one of the youngest attendees at an augmented reality conference hosted by the Media Lab. When Christopher applied to attend the Hackathon this year, he was invited to be a mentor rather than a participant. Up for the challenge, not only did he attend the event, Christopher was the only high school student to serve as a mentor for industry professionals and conference attendees. Mentors at the event included a dynamic team of experts, developers, executives, and students. Christopher was thrilled to work alongside these leaders and educators. Over the past several summers, he has advanced his understanding of augmented reality through work at MIT, and ongoing independent projects as well as customized projects at New Hampton School. 12  NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL  •  FALL 2019

involvement in Clay’s foundation. Having the ability to travel and share his story is something that is not only healing for others, but also for myself. Engaging in dialogues with students and creating an honest discussion about current party culture is something I am fortunate to be able to do. It’s powerful to hear responses from the students I meet and watch as their perspectives shift after viewing our film.” Service can take many forms. By sharing her story and her mission with our community, Allie’s presentation transcends the walls of our school to the teen communities in the hometowns of many of our students. In addition, Allie works alongside her family to manage their family foundation and presents at high schools throughout the state. As she shares the foundation’s message, a very important one for our youth, she’s expanding her leadership skills, building relationships, and serving our communities. You can learn more about the Foundation at

Christopher has developed a creative approach to technology. He primarily works on iOS applications and web platforms to create augmented experiences for architectural models and interactive art installations.

“I believe that immersive technology is going to be the future and solve many of the practicality problems that are facing technology today. This new technology marks a shift away from the more traditional screen interface, which liberates people to use technology in their world. This will allow technology to come more in line with our humanistic way of interacting with the world.”


SERVING EXCELLENCE Honoring a Coach and a Tradition Led by Coach Veronica "Lima"-De Angelis for nearly 30 years, the New Hampton School tennis program has a long history of strong student-athletes and consistent performance, and a passionate, talented coach. In honor of this program, and a longtime tradition, we recently brought new life to the Bicknell Tennis Courts, the heart of our tennis program. Set by the courts, a landscaped stone and tile patio now gives visitors a welcomed location to watch tennis matches, gather for a team meeting or outdoor class, or relax in solitude on a quiet afternoon.

this event, it was remarkable to read the pages upon pages of lives that Lima has touched, the many student-athletes she has mentored and coached throughout her career. These students have been impacted by her leadership, skill, and caring investment in their strength and character. The day was also an opportunity to welcome and offer gratitude to the donors who made this gift possible. We were thankful to lead donor Philip Lux ’11 and his family, the Seymour family, and other generous supporters.

The patio was officially dedicated this past spring in honor of Veronica Lima-De Angelis P’01, ’03. When we created the list for invitations for

for good

In Tristan MacDonald’s ‘20 IB Art Class last spring, a challenging assignment turned into an opportunity to advocate for his passions. Tristan, a resident of Meredith, New Hampshire unearthed an innate artistic talent. He cares deeply about animals and the natural world. As Tristan began discovering art at New Hampton, he found himself drawn to the White Mountain artists of the early 19th century and to the English painter of the same era, J. M. W. Turner who sought to portray the majesty of nature, especially in relation to man. A quiet, thoughtful student, Tristan dived into painting the natural world, paying tribute to its strength and beauty. Charged with making a print by Director of Visual and Performing Arts Amy Wilson, he created a complex print of a loon sitting atop the water. Alongside his foray into print making, Tristan researched the animal and ultimately decided to donate several of his prints to the Loon Preservation Society. The matted and framed prints have helped to raise over $1,000 for this local non-profit organization.

Jane Mirmanova '19


ane arrived at New Hampton School ready to take advantage of every opportunity before her. English speaking summer campus had set the stage for her to voyage overseas from Russia for a more in-depth immersion into the language and a residential schooling experience in the U.S. She solicited help from her school teachers in Moscow and New Hampton quickly rose to the top as she researched boarding schools in the states. Upon visiting, and touring with two current Russian students, she confirmed that New Hampton School was the only option as her tour guides spoke with enthusiasm and care for the community and experience. Jane’s bright and vibrant personality only grew over her three years at New Hampton. As she embraced new courses, clubs, the stage, and opportunities to take risks and learn something new, she quickly established herself as a resource and leader in the community.


What surprised you the most at New Hampton? It surprised me that it wasn’t strange at all to be here. I was so sure I was going to find friends and do well in my classes. And it surprised me how easy it was to study in a fully English environment. In my sophomore year, my English wasn’t as good as it is now, obviously. And I was so nervous. I was like, “Do I bring a dictionary? What do I do?” But then I came here, and everybody was so supportive. I was told, “You can ask questions. You’re not supposed to know everything.” That was groundbreaking for me. Were there adults that were really helpful? I remember the international student orientation. Ms. Farr-Williams was the leader of the group. She was so welcoming, running around, taking care of international students like her own children. And I remember Ms. Brown’s first class. She was like, “You ask questions. This is what you do here. We want you to be curious.” In Russia, we don’t ask questions because you want to appear smart. Here, asking questions means you want to learn; you’re curious; you’re interested. What has been the most fun from your time here? My senior year was fun because it was so different from any other year. I felt a lot of pressure. But at the same time, I met such great people. And I’ve never imagined being close friends to such a big group. The way you spend time with people in the dorms, having little chit-chats, and watching movies together. That is what’s fun, the kind of people you meet in New Hampton. What have you learned at New Hampton that you think will be most helpful to you next year, or in your future? I think embracing myself. And even if I don’t know something or I think I can’t do something,

I should still try. I know if I don’t succeed, nobody’s going to be making fun of me or anything. They can be so supportive. New Hampton gave me this perspective and the ability to connect with many nations, people from all over the world, and embrace it. Are your friends from the US or overseas? I have mostly American friends. But I have some international friends, too. I am so close to my roommate who lives in Boston. I went to her house for Thanksgiving and for Easter. They were so nice and welcoming. They loved that I’m Russian. What are your plans for next year? I cannot wait to get my business degree. My goal in life is to be a powerful businesswoman. I think I’m pretty strong right now. But I need the businesswoman part. Do you think that you will stay in the US or do you plan to go back to Russia? I don’t know yet. I want to get a business degree. Then I’ll see what is best for me. Since I’m Russian, I’m fluent in two languages. Maybe I can work here and support the Russian market or help training for Russia. Or maybe it’s better to go back home and help there, perhaps working in the American market. What advice would you give to a new international student coming to New Hampton? I would say go out of your comfort zone. My best friend last year was Katya. She’s from Moscow and I love her. But I also have so many American friends. It’s hard to get out of your comfort zone when your English is a second language, when you’re an international kid. Don’t be afraid.



Thomas Motley '72 In February 2019, New Hampton School was grateful to welcome The Honorable Thomas J. Motley, Class of 1972, to campus as an Alumni in Residence, part of our annual alumni speaker series. As a frequent visitor to campus for Reunions and networking receptions in Washington, D.C., Motley is no stranger to the greater school community.

During his two-day visit, Motley engaged with students at school meeting as he shared his story and his connection to New Hampton School. He enjoyed lunchtime conversation with students, visited classes, and attended a nail-biting basketball game against Brewster Academy. As a former New Hampton basketball player, this was a must-attend event for Motley. He joined the students in the bleachers, cheered alongside the crowds, and stayed after to congratulate players. Motley spoke about his relationship with “The Hamp,” the term he and his classmates still use to refer to the school. He offered insight into the political unrest that characterized the late 60s and early 70s when he was a student. Students listened as he shared and reflected about his work as a Supreme Court Justice and US District Attorney. Stories of challenging cases he’s worked on over the years were a

highlight for some of the students, getting a rare glimpse of his life and career. By any standard, Motley’s career accomplishments are impressive. He’s faced many challenges in his life both as a person of color and socioeconomically. He’s handled many responsibilities as an attorney and judge, and he now plays a critical role in our judicial system. Yet the students perhaps most appreciated the opportunity to connect with him personally. The small groups, casual conversations, classroom discussions, and his personable stories— these moments epitomized Motley’s ability to connect with the community. Our students continue to reflect on his visit, with some remarks even appearing in a speech at this year’s Commencement. If you are interested in sharing your professional path and life experience as an Alumni in Residence, please contact the Alumni Office at

T WO & T WO with Meg Pechenick Meg Pechenick is in her 9th year teaching at New Hampton School. She teaches Mandarin and History, has worked and led our Accelerated English Language Program, coaches cross-country and she is also well versed in literature. Meg spends her summers writing and has recently published two of her own novels. She lives on campus with her husband Dov and their two children Evan and Kai. WHAT ARE AUTHOR, TEACHER, AND MOTHER MEG’S TWO FAVORITE NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL MEMORIES?

Meg recalls leading sophomore expedition, a wilderness experience for 10th grade students as one of her favorite memories. Always up for an adventure, watching students find their way and themselves through the outdoors was challenging and rewarding. Meg also loves coaching cross-country. A runner herself, it’s a great way to spend time with students, sharing fresh air, beautiful New Hampshire trails, and conversations at practice and meets.

Literati, the official literary magazine of New Hampton School, was created as a revival of the former Jabberwocky magazine, and is now a student run organization showcasing a variety of student work. The idea of the magazine came to fruition in 2015, established by a group of students and faculty members. Literati features original creative work, an up-to-date blog, and Voices of New Hampton. Serving as a window into New Hampton School, Literati hopes to focus on maintaining a cohesive and supportive community in which members can fully express themselves.

Meg loves to read and write. Meg’s first novel, Ascending (The Vardeshi Saga Book 1), a science fiction story, was published in the summer of 2018. Meg eloquently crafts the story of a young woman who must integrate into the alien Vardeshi culture in order to help save humanity. Bright Shards, the sequel to Ascending was published on August 1, 2019. Meg's novels are available for sale at major retailers.

T HE P L AY’S T HE T HI N G Years of working together led to a series of conversations in the summer of 2018 between New Hampton School and a local professional theater— the Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith, New Hampshire. A partnership was forged to combine both theater departments’ efforts to stage a winter play. As Winnipesaukee Education Director Timothy L’Ecuyer put it, “The Winnipesaukee Playhouse and New Hampton School have been successful community partners in so many other ways that coproducing a play seemed like a logical extension of that collaboration.” The Playhouse’s winter education department performance was directed by New Hampton School’s theatre director Joe Sampson. Our students worked alongside local area high school students, gained valuable audience exposure outside of the campus setting, and rehearsed and performed in a professional theatre environment. Among other collaborative highlights, the Winnipesaukee Playhouse hosts five-weeks of theater camps on New Hampton School’s campus each summer, and New Hampton School students engaged with Playhouse productions outside of this partnership as well. Notably, day students Claire Gardner ’19 and Sophie Pankhurst ’22 were honored to receive recognition in the New Hampshire Theatre Awards for their performances in the 2018 productions of Aida and The Secret in the Wings.

SUCCESS ON THE SNOW Hunter Henderson ’21 and Alexa Mailloux ’21 Each year, New Hampton School winter athletes find new successes on the snow. Snow sports may not contain our largest contingent of athletes, but those that choose New Hampton School recognize the proximity to snow, mountains, and the endless potential to grow in a residential environment. In April of 2019, Hunter Henderson learned that he was invited to compete on the US Ski & Snowboard Rookie Slopestyle and Big Air Team. A native of Madbury, New Hampshire, Hunter attends New Hampton during the fall and spring semesters and spends his winters at Waterville Valley Academy where he trains to compete. Hunter was excited to enroll in boarding school where he could balance academics, social life and athletics while pursuing his goals as a competitive athlete. We can't wait to watch him compete in the coming years as he pursues a spot on the US National Team. Yet another snowboarder, Alexa Mailloux, found success on a local level for the second year in a row. During the 20182019 school year, Alexa won all of her competitions, ultimately placing first in the Lakes Region Snowboarding Championship. At the Rail Jam competition hosted by Proctor Academy, Alexa relentlessly hiked the course and challenged herself on all the course features. Judges awarded her first place at the end of the day for her execution, progression throughout the day, and difficulty of tricks. In the final Lakes Region Championships, Alexa took first place in all slopestyle and rail jam competitions, finishing her season undefeated. In the words of coach Luke Tobin, she "blasted off some of the biggest jumps she's hit this season and crushed the rail/box tiers of the course." We look forward to watching Alexa grow as an athlete and see new challenges during her next two years at New Hampton School.

GROWING UP BRAVE Dempsey Arsenault ’15 “Going to New Hampton School really changed my life for the better and I am so fortunate that I was able to call it home.” Dempsey Arsenault ’15 continues in her success after four years as a Boston College lacrosse star. The #2 overall draft pick in the 2019 Women’s Professional Lacrosse League (WPLL) helped carry BC to three consecutive National Championship games and now continues her playing career with the professional league’s Brave team. Her list of accolades is extensive, but Dempsey is much more than her statistics. Her coaches and teammates consistently

acknowledge her humility, work ethic, and do-whatever-it-takes attitude. Conversations with her reflect her strong character. Her humble, unassuming nature could easily lead someone to walk away without realizing that she was the first BC player to be named National Midfielder of the Year, named to the All-ACC Academic Team three years in a row, and a former captain of one of the best teams in college lacrosse history. Dempsey’s experience at BC was transformational. “I was able to push myself constantly and grow as an athlete and as an individual; competing at the highest level for some of the greatest coaches and with some the best players in the world was a dream come true. Not only was I able to challenge myself on the field, but I got an amazing education and made life-long friendships.” The New Hampton native grew up on campus as a faculty kid with her parents, Jamie and Lara Arsenault, and her older brother Ryder ’13. As a New Hampton School student, Dempsey was a two-time All-American, two-year captain, and two-time New England Prep School All-Star. As if that was not enough to keep her busy, Dempsey

was also a standout hockey and field hockey player. As a hockey player, she attended the USA Hockey National Camp and was twice named All-State. “Going to New Hampton School really changed my life for the better and I am so fortunate that I was able to call it home,” Dempsey said of her experience. “Growing up on campus with so many great role models instilled in me my work ethic and made me aspire to be the best studentathlete I could be.” The results from her final season with Boston College highlight the payoff for years of hard work: 92 points on the season while picking up a team-high 45 ground balls and winning a solid 100 draw controls. Now on the professional level, Dempsey has already announced herself on the field. Only two weeks into the season, she earned WPLL Star of the Week honors with a performance that included 4 goals, 1 assist, 5 caused turnovers, 8 ground balls, and 5 draw controls. We are eager to keep an eye on Dempsey as she continues to do big things in the lacrosse world.

Form & Function Strength and Conditioning Coach Tony Mure is a wealth of knowledge. The addition of a full time Strength and Conditioning Coach in the school's athletic program is relatively recent; however, Tony's connection to the school, our athletic program, and our student-athletes goes back many years. "When we help our athletes build appropriate strength, we can condition them for sport specific movements and skills, but also do so in a way that prevents injuries, boosts performance, and sets them on a sustainable path for a lifetime of fitness and athletic success," says Mure. A longtime resident of New Hampshire with a history in athletic performance working with high school, college, and professional athletes, Mure has come to know New Hampton School's athletes and program, consulting with athletes and coaches over the years, and through his own summer training programs and opportunities. Today, Mure works alongside our coaches to support individual student-athletes, teams, and our entire community. Many students have enlisted him for individualized, goal-oriented training programs and can be found following their regimen in the fitness center during

free-blocks and breaks. Mure will often work with teams throughout their seasons, running occasional training sessions and providing insight to coaches to support their programs. "The Strength and Conditioning Program and Tony’s guidance, helps me to train effectively, but also safely, and it has made me a smarter athlete," attests William Wood ʼ20. As a die-hard basketball fan and former head coach at Holderness School for 10-years, Mure loves to cheer for our Huskies in the gym, on the ice, and on the fields. "These young studentathletes have so much potential. Teaching them to understand their physiology, how to prepare their bodies and to meet each challenge with the right mindset is so important. And I love witnessing them find success."

Recover Hard: When you take time to recover—stretch, rest, and take care of your body— you will be better prepared to get the most out of your next workout. This is often one of the most difficult, yet most important, parts of training.


Don’t Skip the Strength: Developing strength alongside your sport makes you a stronger, better conditioned athlete, and is key to injury prevention and sustainability. Strength conditioning is not just about building muscles but building the right type of muscle to excel in your sport.

COMMENCEMENT “Fellow classmates, as you make this next transition, keep looking for what you love, keep your eyes open, and lead with your heart.”

Student Body Co-Presidents Kelly Matthews ’19 and Johnny Beaudet ’19, helped to open and close the ceremony, with Kelly addressing the class and guests first. “Earlier this year, I recall being deeply moved by New Hampton School alumnus Judge 26  NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL  •  FALL 2019

Thomas Motley as he spoke about the special people that he met here over 50 years ago. Sitting amongst the Class of 2019 in the auditorium, I looked around at the teachers and coaches who have been there for us as a class and thought about how lucky we

all were to have such open-minded and genuine role models looking out for us day to day… As I sat in the auditorium that day, I thought about how much the people of this community have given to us and how much we have given to each other: knowledge,

confidence, and happiness.” Between reflections on student life, inclusivity and what makes this school a community, Kelly offered gratitude for many of the difference makers on campus: the teachers, coaches, advisors, and house heads. “This place is special because of those who have walked here and those who walk here every day who have made Husky Nation an uplifting place.” Head of School Joe Williams remarked to the Class of 2019, capturing their spirit and personality, “We know you are ready— your rambunctiousness and desire for greater freedom and independence are tell-tale signs, as is your body of work in the classroom, on the fields, and in the community. We began the year under the theme ‘We Are One’ and you have not disappointed us in carrying that mantra as you have supported each other and nurtured our underclassmen...The joy and laughter you have brought to this community are needed now more than ever in the greater world. As

you splinter off to exciting destinations next year, we know you will do well and I empower you to do it your way!” Jennifer Shackett Berry ’83, P’07, ’10, ’15, H’19 had the distinguished honor of being the 2019 Commencement Speaker. In her address, she offered a final lesson in language and literature, framing the classes relationships to each other and their school through the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who once spoke at a New Hampton School commencement many years ago. “Ralph Waldo Emerson, my favorite of the transcendentalists, defined success through poetic verse and these words I have had on my desk or tack board since I started teaching; I try to live by these as a teacher and perpetual student. He begins: ‘To laugh often and much…’ Laughter makes every situation better, whether a slip on the ice in February while traveling the path from the ARC to Lane, or observing a silly ‘minute to win it’ game during school meeting, we are all better as a result of laughter.”

Mrs. Berry connected each line of Emerson’s poem to both relatable experiences or students in the class who exhibit qualities within Emerson’s words. As a final touch and thank you to the class, Jen closed by sharing, “Live a fortunate life, appreciate beauty, find the best in others, and each day, get better, not worse.” Christopher Fridlington ’19 was the first Cum Laude speaker, a new Commencement tradition, representing the very best of the academic minds on campus. “When I was composing this speech I sought to find a theme that would apply to all of us, and I eventually settled on how each of us share three moments of change in our lives: one when we came to New Hampton, one whilst we have been here, and, finally, the change we are celebrating today.” Chris closed with, “Fellow classmates, as you make this next transition, keep looking for what you love, keep your eyes open, and lead with your heart.”

When it comes to Reunion planning, one thing remains constant. Each volunteer, class agent, and Alumni Office staff member spends countless hours pulling together the people and the programs that make this annual weekend come to life. The steps toward last year's Reunion and its focal point became clear around mid-January when Jennifer Shackett Berry ’83, P’07, ’10, ’15, H’19 announced her retirement. A second retirement announcement soon followed in late winter, this time from long-time Director of Alumni & Parent Relations Cindy Buck P’01, ’05. With more than 50 years of New Hampton School experience between the two of them, the event lent itself to the theme of honoring school legends. Though many of the activities remained the same, the meal planning, speech writing, and outreach took on a new tone. A chance to craft a celebratory send-off for these two pillars of our community was the goal. In return, more than 350 attendees joined us both for their class’s celebration, and to share their words of gratitude, memories, and congratulations for the honorees.

Family Redefined This year marked the retirements and celebrations of two New Hampton School legends—Jennifer Shackett Berry ’83 and Cindy Buck. Of all the words spoken and shared this spring, perhaps the most compelling were those shared by those who know them best, their children. Reflecting on their contributions both to our school, our lives, and their families, we give our thanks to New Hampton School Trustee Eric Buck ’01 and Kelsey Berry ’07 for illuminating the commitment of each of these women in a way that only they can.


JENNIFER SHACKETT BERRY ’83, P’07, ’10, ’15, H’19

Whether it’s been organizing wonderful events such as this, or something more simple—like sending a recent husky grad a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies their first week of college exams so they know that someone at New Hampton is thinking about them and wishing them luck—Cindy Buck embodies Husky pride. As a key ambassador for the school, she ensures everyone—whether by email, phone or in person—feels that meaningful, positive connection. […] For current students she has always tried to make New Hampton feel like home, and she works tirelessly to make sure their parents understand that this is no ordinary boarding school. It is an incredibly special place filled with people, like her. Once New Hampton gets in your blood it never leaves, and Cindy Buck will always bleed green. — Eric Buck '01

Because of you choosing to raise your family at New Hampton, my life, and Emma and Hayden’s, had a diverse cast of babysitters, friends and faculty-mentors. As a six-year-old, I watched The Brady Bunch with Hallie from Texas, who had the same long blond hair as Marsha, and a southern drawl. I had girls in prom dresses at my birthday party and learned how to fold origami. Hayden, at five, invited recent New Hampton graduates—Eric, Topher and Ben—to his birthday party because those were his friends, and they came. Emma took art lessons with Amy. Darren gave me novels to read in the summer. I could go on about so many individuals and the role they played in our lives, but in short, our lives have been made richer because we shared you as a Mom with so many, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you for showing me, and others, what it is to have an open home and heart to your students. — Kelsey Berry '07

NHS Alumni PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM For Catrina Caruso ’19, the Partnership Program offered a step in the right direction towards medical school and her dream of becoming a doctor. Her internship this summer with Dr. Richard Dupee ’63 at Tufts Medical Center gave her the experience she needs to leave her mark on Providence College this year. The rising college freshman helped Dr. Dupee re-write his anatomy curricula for first-year medical students, create a presentation on dementia for the World Medical Conference, and research her own interests related to geriatric medicine. At the beginning of her internship, Catrina was set on becoming a plastic surgeon, “I thought I was in it for surgery and found out I love the research part. I found something else to consider, another possible path.” She spent time researching different proteins in the brain and how they can be redirected to regenerate cell death. The Partnership Program offers a terrific opportunity for students to dive deep into something they care about or learn something new while gaining practical and professional experience in the workplace. Catrina was one of four students who participated in New Hampton’s Partnership Program over the summer. Delaney Smith ’20 worked at Pedestal Footwear, a performance footwear start-up based in Boston led by founder/owner Mike Lyon ’08. Madison Willingham ’19 and Mark Hausman ’20 both interned for State Representative and New Hampton Advancement Associate and head soccer coach Willis Griffith. The Partnership Program is designed to help connect current students with New Hampton School alumni and parents for internship and volunteer opportunities. These internships have run during the summer, and as the Partnership Program continues to develop, the school is actively looking for opportunities for students to participate in the summer, school breaks, and the academic year all across the country.

If you are interested in partnering with New Hampton School to offer a work place opportunity to current students or young alumni, please contact the alumni office (

The New Hampton Men’s Hockey program is built on the intangibles, the non-negotiables, and a team-first culture. The program boasts an impressive five consecutive NEPSAC appearances and two finals appearances in the last ten years. New Hampton Hockey is no stranger to success and the school has made an investment in the future of the program by appointing Connor Gorman ’11 and former faculty and hockey coach Joe Marsh as Head Coach and Associate Head Coach respectively.

This year begins an evolving partnership centered around collaboration and getting the most out of the players. Gorman “understands that [he] is still an underdog” and there is a determination in his voice to learn, win, and develop as a coach. His dedication to and respect for the program is paired well with Marsh’s love for New Hampton School and wisdom gained over years of coaching. Both are excited to work together to continue and build upon the legacy of New Hampton Hockey.

Gorman, still fresh off a professional playing career, brings an incredible drive and passion to the game. Last season, Gorman served as the Varsity B Head Coach and Assistant Coach for the Varsity A team. The 2011 New Hampton School graduate was named MVP of the school’s hockey team before moving on to Plattsburgh State where he tallied 68 points in 104 games. Following a successful college career, Gorman played professionally for two years with the Peoria Rivermen where he tallied 90 points in 115 games. Gorman’s positive impact on the New Hampton program was felt immediately upon his return due to his tenacious approach on the ice and unwavering care for each player.

Gorman has emphasized a focus on what is best for the program and how he can learn from Marsh, “we are equals and this is our team. This is not about either one of us, it’s about the players and the team. The X’s and O’s stuff will be great, but it’s always evolving… I’m really looking to [Joe] to help me learn about delivering the right message at the right time, there probably aren’t many situations he hasn’t seen.” Marsh added, “I’ve been there and had my day. I’m very impressed with Connor’s enthusiasm and passion. The thing is that at some point you have to get your first job and he is exactly the same age as I was when I was at New Hampton. The guys won’t really care how much you know until they know how much you care; Connor cares very much about the guys and, ultimately, that will be the difference maker.”

Marsh is an icon in the hockey world and brings wisdom, experience, and leadership to the program. The former New Hampton School math teacher was the Assistant Coach of the hockey program in 1976 beginning right after his graduation from UNH, two years later he took over as Head Coach. Marsh went on to lead the Huskies to a 56-5 record before moving to Choate Rosemary where he earned a 13-5-1 record. Joe Marsh then went on to create a dynasty at St. Lawrence University during his 26-year tenure over that program. During his time at SLU, Marsh won the NCAA Division 1 Coach of the Year twice, was named ECAC Coach of the Year four times, and won five ECAC Championships. Marsh has had an incredible career setting records, filling stat sheets, and developing great hockey players. The partnership between Gorman and Marsh lays the foundation for years to come. Gorman is a high-level, up-and-coming coach while Marsh brings decades of experience and success at the collegiate level.

The two have been in lockstep since the announcement of the coaching transition in March of 2019. Their shared vision for the program continues a tradition of strong character and passion for the game. “While playing for championships and earning college commitments are a priority for us, we know those things are byproducts of all the little things we do throughout the year,” said Gorman. “The guys can’t worry about things that are beyond their control and shouldn’t lose the enjoyment of the game and the reason why they’re playing. We want them to embrace what the team is all about and how important it is to be a great teammate,” added Marsh. As the season rapidly approaches, Coach Gorman is looking forward to “that first win and getting in the locker room with the guys and seeing the joy and love for the game that each player has because of New Hampton.” FALL 2019  •   HAMPTONIA  41

Student Voices YANABI SIERRA '19 Even though Yanabi Sierra came to New Hampton School from Elizabeth, New Jersey in the US, after her first year here, she asked if she could be an international student leader. Yanabi’s family is from Colombia and she felt she had much to offer our international student community in adjusting to boarding school life in the states. Yanabi was sure to take advantage of all the opportunities before her at New Hampton School. She pursued the full IB Diploma Programme while also jumping into leadership opportunities in the Admission Office, the residential houses, and various programs. Always smiling, thoughtful and enthusiastic, Yanabi set high standards for herself and her peers, consistently serving the school as an active global citizen.

How did you arrive at New Hampton School? I participated in a program called New Jersey SEEDS. It is designed to help students get away from the public school system there which is not very good. It started in seventh grade, and it’s a 14-month program. I took Saturday classes, and they helped me find a list of schools that they thought would be best for me. When I came here, I remember feeling like I could be here for four years, and it was my number one choice. What do you wish you had known when you arrived four years ago? I wish I’d known how fast it was going to go by. Freshman and sophomore year, I took it a little bit for granted because it felt like time was going by so slow. But then junior year and senior year went by really fast. I wish someone would have told me, “You need to enjoy every single day.” What are you most proud of from your time here? Before I got here, I was very introverted. I did not think I would be a tour guide. I didn’t think I would be in different groups and different clubs. Here, it’s hard not to get involved with the people because the people are so nice. I didn’t think I would be friends with people I’m friends with now. I’m really proud of how much I’ve grown as a person. What activities have you learned the most from? Leadership positions here, being a proctor or an international ambassador, have taught me a lot about interacting with different kinds of people. Being an International Ambassador as an American student has been interesting. It’s been nice for me to help guide them to where they fit in best or to remind them that they’re not the only ones who feel homesick. 42  NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL  •  FALL 2019

What will you miss the most? Definitely the people. Obviously, I’ll miss my friends, but I spend so much time with the faculty here. I know they’re my teachers, but I also confide in them for a lot of things and spend time with their families and kids. People become more than just teachers and staff—it’s this cool family atmosphere. I like the small community, and I like that people say hi when you run into them across campus. What are your plans for this fall? I’m going to American University in Washington DC. And I’m doing a pre-med track with a major in neuroscience and a minor in public health. Taking a lot of science classes here helped, because all the teachers are so passionate about what they do and it helped me feel like, “Okay, I can do it, too.” How do you think the IB program has helped get you ready for college? Well, I think time management because I did the full IB program. It is hard to balance everything. I didn’t want to give up my social life and I didn’t want to give up other things that I do here. The way that the program is structured and even the way that they teach us is very college-like. How did you pick American University? I knew that I wanted a bigger school, and I knew that I wanted somewhere more city-like and to stay on the East Coast. I also wanted a place that had a lot of research opportunities for me. So that narrowed it down to Boston and DC. And when I visited American University, even though it was bigger, I got a lot of the same feelings that I got when I came here. Just like here, I felt like I could be there for four years.


QUINCY PAYNE '20 Quiet and reserved, Quincy arrived at New Hampton School a year ago and enriched our community with his passion for innovation, discovery and engineering. Quincy left his public high school outside of Boston, Massachusetts searching for better balance in his education and daily life. New Hampton School was a new environment for him—the school size, residential setting, and community were all different. Quincy’s curiosity and willingness to try something new served him well and before long, he found his niche, and opportunities to lead. Big aspirations and an interest in coding, science, and mechanics led Quincy to the innovation lab where his own curiosity and prior experience quickly positioned him as a leader. Before long, in addition to advocating that the innovation space be accessible during study hours and into the evening, Quincy was hosting workshops and introducing the equipment, software and techniques to his classmates.

What activities are you involved in at New Hampton? Since coming to New Hampton, I’ve done cross country and the Innovation Lab. I also enjoyed working on theatre tech in the play. Did you take innovation classes or were you doing robotics after school? I have not taken any classes in the Innovation Lab. I started by taking coding, but a lot of the material that they were going over I had already learned, so I ended up doing the robotics after school.

class, a lot of people are interested in laser cutting and building things and learning how to do stuff. I don’t know if I’m more surprised that there’s an interest to begin with or that no one has launched a program already. Do you have any plans for after high school? I would like to become a nuclear engineer. That’s my number one. Second runner-up is a mechanical engineer.

Can you explain what you do in the Innovation Lab? You solve a problem. For example, there’s a company that makes a small keychain holder that holds an X-Acto blade that comes out, so you can open boxes. I wanted to design my own because I didn’t want to pay $40 for something that would take a couple hours of work. So, I used Onshape which is a free open source 3D CAD program that runs in a web browser; you can make drawings and then extrude, and make assemblies.

Are there any teachers that have been helpful to you this year? Yeah, Dr. Duncan was extremely helpful as well as Mr. Schwab in green lighting the innovation workshop. Dr. Duncan and I led an Arts Day workshop, and that was eye-opening to see how much interest people had. Because we had a three-hour block. Dr. Duncan and I worried that we wouldn’t be able to engage students for the entire time. And it turned out a lot of the students wanted to stay and get more done.

And then you send that to the printer? Yes. Most of the time I’m doing this rapid prototype and design phase of innovation. You design a product band then print it out and then see if it works. Then you see what you can change, then innovate, and then redo. It’s an endless cycle until you find what you want.

What do you appreciate about New Hampton that’s different from your public school? I really appreciate the community. Coming from a school that had 1,600 students, there is definitely a different dynamic in the community. My previous school was very academically competitive to an extent where it was not healthy. Whereas here, I think it’s definitely more open, more accepting, and overall, more friendly while retaining the pursuit of academic excellence.

What has surprised you since you came to New Hampton? The most surprising thing is the overall interest in the laser cutter in the Innovation Lab. Through the workshops I’ve been hosting after

Examining our 2019 Strategic Plan in Action At the heart of the 2019 Strategic Plan are the people and programs that make our school run. As we look toward our bicentennial, celebrating a rich and vibrant two-hundred years and planning for the next two hundred, our strategic plan centers us around five themes: innovation, experience, character, tradition, and strength. With these themes in mind, we've channeled the ideas and actions of our strategic plan into strands for implementation. Guided by timelines, steering committees and our own enthusiasm, initiatives are rapidly advancing across campus. When the Strategic Plan was adopted in the fall of 2018, many of the action items were already in progress on campus and others were yet to be started, but the source of ongoing discussion. Here we've dived into several of the ongoing initiatives that help to set New Hampton School apart, position us for the future, and energize our community. As evidenced from the projects we've included, we continue our student-centered tradition, our entrepreneurial spirit, and our commitment to excellence.

The answer is our new signature program in leadership and entrepreneurial studies. This program will allow students to pursue course work, create partnerships, and provide a hub to test and grow their ideas, cross training them for a future that is constantly changing. In an article called "The Next Era of Human Machine Partnerships," The Institute of the Future predicts that eighty-five percent of the jobs students will do in 2030 have not yet been created. Parents and students, focused on the future, often ask, “What sort of work force opportunities do you provide students so they are prepared for the jobs of the future?” The Leadership and Entrepreneurship Studies Program will allow students to gain this work force exposure, while also catapulting New Hampton School forward. Innovation has always been at the center of a New Hampton School education. Project Week allows students to create and drive their own learning. Our partnership with The Walt Disney Family Museum has provided opportunities in blended learning for our students. In Dr. Duncan’s robotics co-curricular, students combined coding and robotics to enhance the capabilities of our robotics kits. In the spring, Quincy Payne ’20, opened the Innovation Lab to students, showing them how to use our laser cutter and how it can be applied to course work. We have seen our dedicated faculty already innovating to make their existing courses more relevant, using Extended Block Saturdays as an opportunity to connect content outside the walls 46  NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL  • FALL 2019

of the classroom during an uninterrupted, three-hour class. Our commitment to experiential learning continues to grow as we provide students with a creative space for their pursuits and our course and co-curricular offerings to meet the ever-changing demands for a relevant education. The Leadership and Entrepreneurial Studies Program will eventually have a home on the main floor of the ARC. With the proposed merger with the Gordon Nash Library, New Hampton School’s library will move across Main Street, freeing up the ARC for an innovation, creativity, and leadership hub. New courses will be housed in this space, and existing courses will be able to use technology such as laser cutters, 3D printers, and other maker equipment, to better deliver curriculum, competencies, and skills. Some students will choose to fully immerse themselves in the offerings provided by the Leadership and Entrepreneurial Studies Program, launching start-up concepts and ventures, while other students will be able to enhance their experience by taking leadership courses and being exposed to the creativity and innovation in the space. The Leadership and Entrepreneurial Studies Program will be open to all students with various entry points. The program’s innovation will be felt across campus, having a similar effect as the introduction of the International Baccalaureate Programme nearly a decade ago. This new program will help New Hampton School deliver our mission and vision. It will help to cross train students for an uncertain future and make them nimble enough to take appropriate risks in order to succeed in whatever career they pursue.


he Gordon Nash Library and New Hampton School have been linked since the library’s inception. In 1885 the library was created out of Judge Nash’s will. It was to be a place, “Free to all—residents, students or sojourners”. Long ago, Nash was a New Hampton School alumnus. In fact, when New Hampton School celebrates its Bicentennial in 2021, the Gordon Nash Library will celebrate its 125th year of operation. The merger of the Gordon Nash Library with New Hampton School has, in a sense, been in the making since its inception in 1895. The library is currently a privately funded institution and was originally used as New Hampton School’s library. When the Academic Research Center (ARC) was dedicated in October of 1997 the school’s library moved to its now current location. The merger reestablishes the school’s library and collections back to its original home just across Main Street. The School's relationship with the town of New Hampton has always been of importance, and this is an exciting opportunity to build our partnership with the town, share resources, and engage with our surrounding community. It will allow the Gordon Nash Library to be updated and become a truly modern library space. Not only will the library continue to house books and collections, it will also provide adequate space for existing programs that town and area residents utilize. The library’s robust children’s program will thrive and expand with updates to the current space. The library will also be utilized by New Hampton School students during the day and in the evenings for individual and group study. Other opportunities exist such as collaborative work spaces and study rooms for students and residents or a new home for our service learning program with initiatives including robotics for elementary school students, homework help, and programming for senior citizens in the Lakes Region. The merger of the Gordon Nash Library with New Hampton School is the perfect way to launch our Bicentennial celebration. Honoring our past with a new commitment to the residents of the town of New Hampton, this merger will ensure the library’s operation will continue for another 200 years. At the same time, the merger represents the innovative ethos of New Hampton School’s DNA as we look to the future and how to best prepare students to be lifelong learners, global citizens, and empower students to solve difficult problems. This is a good reminder that we can offer transformative experiences in our own backyard.

ew Hampton School has long since been willing to try something new. Education is always changing and our role in academic leadership is ongoing. In the past several years, New Hampton School shifted some of our classroom priorities in order to provide students with the most relevant education and skills they will need to be successful. Last year, faculty implemented five Habits of Mind that they thought were most essential for academic success. Habits of Mind were first identified by Arthur Costa in the early 2000s. He identifies Habits of Mind as the traits that people demonstrate when confronted with challenges. At New Hampton School, faculty looked at Costa's 16 originally identified models, and selected 5 unique Habits of Mind that New Hampton School would focus on teaching and assessing. They are: Preparation and Self-Management; Collaboration; Striving for Clarity and Precision; Perseverance; and Creating, Imagining, and Innovating. By selecting our own Habits of Mind we are aligning Costa's ideas with our school's mission and priorities. Faculty then established strategies to help students learn and embody these respective Habits of Mind in the classroom. In addition to their use in our academic program, Habits of Mind are also used in the student life curriculum and athletics and co-curricular activities. Alongside Habits of Mind, teachers have been assessing students based on competency development for several years now. Beyond the content that students are learning in classes, each course includes competencies, essential skills that teachers are working to build in their students. These competencies allow students to gain a better understanding of their development in a particular course or skill, and also help teachers to differentiate and individualize instruction, furthering the ability for us to deliver an individualized academic experience. Our teachers are the heart of the academic experience. As such, we've enlivened our professional development opportunities. Mentor pods, established in 2018, offer faculty a unique opportunity to learn and growth together. Each mentor pod is comprised of one faculty member in their first year at New Hampton School, a veteran faculty, and a teacher early in their career. This model does not just focus on the new teacher’s growth. Rather, all are learning with and from each other. Additionally, faculty meetings and off-site learning opportunities all come into the conversation, collectively developing a robust pool of resources for faculty new and old. Passionate educators love to hone their craft. Their entrepreneurial spirit supports our student experience, but also characterizes our approach to academics. Whether through classroom instruction or sharing their own passions and projects, faculty impart this spirit of innovation, risk-taking, and exploration on our students throughout their New Hampton School journey.

The Greatest Impact


ur community, and the community that surrounds our students, has forever been the hallmark of the New Hampton School experience. We all understand that at a boarding school, our educational experience extends beyond the walls of the classroom into our residence halls, advisory meetings, meal times, the stage and the fields. With a Strategic Plan that is focused on people and programs, it makes sense that we prioritize improvements and innovations that will have the greatest impact on our student experience.

and grow, and where every single student and faculty experience is touched.

As a community, we come together throughout the day at meals in our dining hall, and we start and end each day in the comfort of our residence houses, with our roommates, classmates and faculty families. Helping to integrate all of these meaningful experiences, alongside academics, athletics and arts, are our faculty advisors, and a comprehensive advisory program.

Similarly, as a residential community, we start and end each day in our houses. Students share rooms with a roommate, and floors with their classmates. Conversations range from what to wear for a specific event to relationships to homework to vacation plans. Each house on campus is led by a house parent, who often shares the experience with their whole family, young children included. As our faculty often say, working at a boarding school is not a job, it's a lifestyle, and they love it for the relationships it allows them to foster with their students.

The advisory program helps each student feel grounded and know that they have a faculty championing their successes and their struggles, always available as a resource and a friend. Over the years, our advisory program has evolved to set itself apart, with specific programming for each student grade level, supporting the student journey across the academic year. With our community in mind, the Strategic Plan is placing emphasis on high impact investments to improve our campus and this experience. As we consider the spaces across campus in need of renovation, our attention is drawn to our community spaces, where we gather

First and foremost on this list is our dining hall. We don't enter this building once, but three times, each day. Over meals we laugh, empathize, tell stories and connect with our classmates and peers. At key moments throughout the year, the entire community gathers together in the dining hall to share a dinner—sometimes formal, sometimes not—often family style.

In recent years, New Hampton School has focused on facilities improvements to our academic spaces, preserving their architectural history, yet advancing them to sophisticated, modern classroom spaces. Guided by the Strategic Plan, we now consider campus improvements and renovations to spaces that will have the greatest impact on supporting the people. It is the places, where we share experiences over meals and build important relationships with our classmates and adults through connections in our off hours, that will shape our community and nurture our next generation.

Alicia Hammond is a Gender Specialist.. Her title draws to

mind many different images and questions. Advocacy, human endowments, voice, and agency are all terms that are embedded in this field. At its core, her work is fundamentally about exploring ways to bring about equality between women and men—but she emphasizes the importance of moving beyond the gender binary. Her latest goal focuses on connecting research to practice in ways that improve opportunities for women and girls in technology around the world.


Hammond works for the World Bank Group (WGB)—a well-known organization driven by their mission “to end extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity in a sustainable way.” The WBG is one of the world’s largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries. A glance at her bio on their website reveals a gateway of blogs published by Hammond and partners. One titled “Women wavemakers: Practical strategies for closing the gender gap in tech” offers a crash course in global stats in this highly competitive field. For example, that ‘in over 30 emerging economies, men are 2.7 times more likely to work in the ICT [Information and Communications Technology] sector than women, and 7.6 times more likely to work in ICT occupations.’ Evaluating data from the WBG’s website illustrates, in almost overwhelming detail, the extent of many gender equality issues which we hear about in the news. To some, the at times alarming data available may be heartbreaking. But to others, activists and researchers alike, it can show a different and potentially optimistic side to their work. Data interpretation and applied research can light the way to change. And for Hammond, this work, as we will see, is incredibly rewarding. Hammond’s current role requires her to

conduct research on women and girls in STEM [Science Technology Engineering Math] and advise on the design of innovative projects focused on enhancing digital skills and facilitating women’s economic opportunities through technology. She has worked on research and analysis across a range of gender equality issues. Her work has tackled formidable challenges in research such as a comprehensive literature review on women and girls in STEM, seeking to better understand the drivers of women’s underrepresentation in these fields, as well as evidence-based solutions. In other areas, she advises research teams who carry out impact evaluations in testing the effectiveness of coding bootcamps for women’s digital employment in Kenya, Colombia, and Argentina, as well as advising operational teams on the integration of gender equality in innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship projects. The now well-practiced specialist took many steps between her early training as a modern dancer to the stage she takes on today. Visualizing her story is perhaps like witnessing gravity and chance combine. While some parts of her journey evoke that presence of being drawn to a place or person, other moments illustrate another aspect of her real character: a person who seeks and seizes opportunities—a person with innate intellectual curiosity and passion. So how did Hammond, a New Hampton School alumna from the Class of 2004, arrive in this field? These past fifteen years have seen her transition from New Hampton to nearby Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, to New York and Kingston, Jamaica, then on to Tufts University at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy where she earned her Master’s in Human Security and Development Economics. She has worked with UNICEF, Harvard Kennedy School, the UN Foundation, and UN Women, not to mention working on women’s rights in her hometown of Kingston at organizations such as Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN Caribbean). And that’s really where our story begins. In Kingston, Jamaica circa 2002, when Alicia

was deciding her next step. Hammond attended an all-girls Catholic school in Kingston, and like many others around her, she was interested in going aboard to continue her studies. With the strong support of her mother, Athlene, she worked with Sandra Bramwell of Versan Educational Services to help her take the right tests, identify schools, and guide her through the entire application process. “In the end, I really picked New Hampton School because of the dance program. I was a modern dancer growing up, and I hadn’t decided what I wanted to do yet. I had heard about Lisa Travis and her fantastic dance program. And, so, this was actually the primary reason I chose the school. But also the sense of the school having an international focus and showing a specific effort to bring international students into the community.” Hammond mentions working with Carol, an admissions associate, and her key importance in creating that first impression with the community. This was especially important for a student who would leave their home not only for the first time but also to travel abroad to the United States. Her memories of New Hampton School include a lot of firsts. The first time she saw snow, for one. Hammond jokes easily about how she thought she was prepared for this experience, and particularly for what she perceived she would need to wear in cold weather. “I remembered I showed up on campus, and I had a chunky burgundy turtleneck. And I felt that I was really ready for winter. And then everyone kind of looked at me and said, ‘you’re crazy’ and ‘you need to get a proper coat.’ I was completely unprepared.” Like other international student stories you may be familiar with from our school, Hammond had a close-knit group of friends. In the classroom, she remarks on her learning experience with English faculty member Doug McKinnon. “He was the best teacher I had at New Hampton School, and really taught me how to write. Years after I left, he helped me prepare my essays for graduate school.

I wasn’t there for very long—I went to work at the Planning Institute of Jamaica for about a year. I emailed them randomly and offered to volunteer, which was a terrible idea because I really couldn’t afford it.” With what Hammond describes as luck, she got the position, with a paid contract, and ‘the coolest boss ever.’ She notes that her former boss, Taitu Heron, is still a leading women’s rights activist in Jamaica. “I started working with her on women’s reproductive rights. I learned a lot about how you do gender equality in practice from her. It was a really good experience.” Ultimately, Hammond’s time in Jamaica led her back to the US to pursue a Master’s degree. With options laid out ahead of her from the west coast to the United Kingdom, Hammond was drawn to the already familiar New England landscape as she pursued her studies at Tufts University. “It felt so much like Mount Holyoke and like New Hampton School.

be somebody who you’re not learning from directly, but they’re in the same environment.” The idea of role models can take on a more active role, through a mentor, for instance, but that doesn’t end with choosing just one. Hammond expresses the idea that it is a beneficial approach to have multiple people who can guide you—both female and male. “You need to look for people who can give you a sense of what’s possible and advice on how to navigate strategically. A mentor is good, but a sponsor is even better as you move along the career trajectory— someone who can help in a more intentional way. Finding mentors and sponsors is tough, it takes some courage, and I’m working on this myself, too.” The strength to ask someone can be an obstacle. Hammond helpfully reminds us that, as many professionals know, in many cases, people are happy to give advice when asked. In finding the right person, you need to evaluate your goals and why you are looking to connect with someone. To

evaluate their career and see if that’s a direction you want to model, or if there is something else about this person that is drawing you to them. “There’s this thing about figuring out who you are and where the two of you connect. The best advice I ever got from somebody is to look at people in your immediate work environment, and if you see somebody who is where you want to be in 10 years or 15 years, go ask them. Ask them about their trajectory and how they got there, and what their advice is for you. For mid- and senior-career level professionals, it’s important to look out for those who are coming behind you and proactively reach out to them. This has made all the difference to me throughout the years, especially when I was hesitant or too intimidated to reach out to someone. It’s a little bit of a two-way thing.” With her gained experience, Hammond has accepted speaking opportunities abroad as part of her work. This exposure has opened up a new lane of fulfillment as she pursues options to be a panelist, and meet

many new people. A knowledgeable public speaker, Hammond brings with her years of expertise and passion. In late 2018, she had the honor of speaking at the Africa Summit for Women in Technology. When asked about this experience, Hammond defers about the importance of her presence at this event. “That was one of my favorite events, but it wasn’t my favorite because I participated, to be honest.” Hammond views her career with open eyes. She knows that the real reward is not in her work alone. Instead, it is in what that work accomplishes and what it allows her to witness. Calling upon her inspiration at the Africa Summit for Women in Technology, Hammond remembers what truly fires her up when she considers her work: seeing women challenge the status quo. That gathering place filled with hundreds of women whose conversations and expertise ripple around the globe, even perhaps reaching the long-reigning tech kingdom of Silicon Valley, if not merely challenging that center from thousands of miles away.

“There is this idea that there is only Silicon Valley and that evokes one kind of idea of who works in tech and who belongs in it. But what was amazing, particularly at that conference, is that there are incredible women technologists all across the African continent, and they are really innovating. A lot of what I see in terms of what distinguishes women in technology is that they tend to use technology to solve problems in their communities, and so for me, the importance of me being there wasn’t so much about being a panelist.” Hammond pushes forward with her inspiration from the conference, wondering at the excitement of witnessing real-world examples of role models and thinking about “how can we make them more visible.” She speaks with passion about the women and girls across the globe—women and girls across the African continent—who gain excitement about technology, learn skills, and work hard to consider how they can use technology to solve problems in their communities. “I was as excited to be there as a participant as I was to meet everybody. To hear about all the amazing things that people are working on. The person who conceptualized and organized the conference, Nanjira Sambuli, she’s a Kenyan advocacy strategist, and just seeing the vast community that she has created and learning from her was inspiring. For these situations, I go in with a lot of humility. I haven’t worked in tech; I don’t come from a tech background. I started [in my field] because I was curious, and I wanted to learn about it. Learning from people who’ve been doing it for a long time, seeing them in action, and having that be a great source of inspiration as well.” An open and supportive witness to these women’s passions and global effects, Hammond seems to embody the idea of active global citizenship. While she may not have a background in tech, through her work and the work of many like her, purposeful and deliberate discourse in communities both near and far are made possible. Technology, Hammond explains, is a strategic area that is still relatively new to the World Bank Group. While she doesn’t want to overstate the effects of these

efforts, the studies and long-term research are essential, enlightening, and display the importance of access to technology education. “There was a huge gap where no one was talking about the gender digital divide, and there were no programs in that area. After we developed the World Bank Group’s gender strategy, I realized that there was not a lot happening at the intersection of gender equality and technology, and I became really interested in how I could find innovators across institutions, and how I could apply what I know about gender equality to this specific area of work. I spent some time getting to know who the people were, and what they’re working on, and a lot of it was around the social skills working on innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems, for example, thinking about support for tech-related small and medium enterprises. For a long time, it was pulling the pieces together and figuring out what this stream of work could look like. And now things have changed, and there’s a huge focus on technology.” Hammond is encouraged that there are many more people working on these challenges now, that it has become more mainstream, and that there’s more support for it. The future of their work lies in how they can apply their learnings in practice and make sense of the pieces of evidence they’ve seen through their research. “A lot of evidence comes from the STEM field, more broadly, but there is much less research at the intersection of gender equality and technology, especially outside of highincome contexts. STEM research gives us some insights. I would say that now we’re still figuring it out. There’s more happening than there used to be, but the exciting thing is that now we can develop a more focused approach.” As for the future of STEM and gender equality, awareness is only the beginning. Hammond and many of her peers see that Silicon Valley is not the only place where technological change and innovation is happening. With thought and intention, places like WBG can support female technologists and help fulfill their mission by investing and supporting local solutions. “One of my favorite experiences

was getting to meet really cool women coders in Kenya, hearing about all they’re working on, and knowing that there is so much talent there. Our work is about how we can help with ecosystems, or even just visibility, and creating the space for them to develop solutions. That’s what energizes me. Working in specific countries and working in innovation ecosystems. Finding where the women technologists and entrepreneurs are and creating more and more space for them to thrive.” The work ahead in gender equality, in technology and beyond, is work closely tied to power differentials. Traditional gender roles, which vary in every corner of the map, are a lasting part of the discussion on the way to reaching equality. More research, advocates, access, and applications of practical solutions are needed. “I look back now, and it’s been a really cool journey. I think I’ve had a good decade working on gender equality from different perspectives and it’s been satisfying to work a little bit on the activism side and then on the research side, working with international institutions. I think what you see is that everybody wants the same goal but has different ways of going about it. The last ten years have shown me it’s really about finding more ways to collaborate and having the multinationals work a little bit closer with women’s rights groups, finding effective ways to support them since they know their context best.” The future for Hammond? As someone who describes a personal tension within herself between the idea of whether she is an intellectual or a creative, Hammond is finding the time to support both essences of herself. She continues on her journey, expanding her sense of fulfillment with her work and personal pursuits. “I think in terms of how I feel now, I’m at a point where I’m reflecting and thinking. I’ll still keep doing what I do, but also make space for other things. I became a yoga teacher earlier this year and also just signed up for an interior design program at Parsons School of Design. I’m open to staying open.”

oe Ardagna is many things. Most known for his role in the founding of Tappan Street Restaurant Group, the company that consolidated the Taco Mac franchise and turned it into a wildly successful chain, he is also a New Hampton School alumnus, a hall of fame hockey player, a Meservey medal winner, a former assistant softball coach, a board member, and a current parent. His story is that of hard work, grit, and lessons learned, but also of people. Of meetings and re-meetings. Of twists of fate that seemed too convenient to be coincidental. Of moments that didn’t exist in isolation but returned to points in his past. And most importantly of a path that led back to New Hampton School. Since leaving New Hampton as a student, Joe has had many full circle moments that have brought him back into contact with the school and the people close to it. In the chain of events that led Joe back to his alma mater, a significant number of those links are forged with the stuff of New Hampton. If it is the people that make New Hampton School what it is, Joe is the ideal graduate, ideal alumnus, and quintessential advocate for the institution. In short, the embodiment of the “person” that makes New Hampton the school it is.

Joe grew up in Melrose, a Massachusetts town with a hockey legacy. He and his brother Mark began their careers playing hockey, of all places, in the backyard of their family home. “My dad used to flood the backyard to make a little rink for my cousins and my brothers and I to play. I remember walking, then being on the ice with old skates and sticks and just playing pickup. That led to joining a league in Melrose and playing on the Melrose Flyers.” The competition was strong, and so was Joe’s team, but his career in Melrose took a sudden turn when his family was forced to move. “Right as we started getting into our groove, my dad got transferred to Atlanta. I was twelve years old and was like, ‘Well, I’m done with hockey and life’s over.’ Luckily it turned out to be quite the contrary.” Joe’s father worked as a senior maintenance coordinator for Delta airlines. “Basically, whenever something went wrong with a plane in the air, they called my dad’s office.” He taught Joe and his brother the value of hard work, respect for others, and to do the best in every endeavor they undertook. Despite feeling like his hockey career had ended, Joe’s father simultaneously proved to his sons how

wrong they were and how much he cared for them by creating an opportunity for them to play. “My dad, with a group of people, basically started amateur hockey in Atlanta. Although the competition at our age level wasn’t very good at all, my brother and I played on multiple teams. I was twelve years old playing with people fifteen, sixteen, and seventeen years old. We traveled to Huntsville, Alabama, Knoxville, Tennessee, Charlotte, North Carolina. The whole time my dad was very involved, allowing us to play as much as we wanted to.” Despite their father’s efforts and sacrifices, eventually, Joe and his brother reached a point in which they’d outgrown the competition in Atlanta and exhausted their hockey opportunities. This was the first junction in which Joe crossed paths with New Hampton School. “One of our coaches, John Murphy, had Mike McShane come down to see a tournament. The following year my brother was at New Hampton. I followed him after that.” Joe spent two years at New Hampton School, his senior year in 1979 and a post-graduate year after that in 1980. However, this decision came with some trepidation. “I had no idea what a prep school was. I was just a kid in Georgia

wanting to play hockey…even now, people think I was crazy letting my fifteen-year-old son leave.” Luckily, Joe had family in the Boston area, and through the travel perks of Delta airlines, Joe’s father was able to make it to most of his hockey games. Joe left Georgia to attend New Hampton School in what he calls “the most life-changing decision he ever made.” Joe lived in the Infirmary, a building that no longer exists on campus today but was prime real estate to a young man, hundreds of miles from home. “It was right next to the hockey rink, so we thought we’d made it. And my room was at the end, so I had my own bathroom…as a teenager, I was more interested in the ice rink and all that than the beautiful mountains around me.” His roommate at the time was Ray Shero, now the current general manager of the New Jersey Devils. Joe admits with a laugh, “little did we know how our lives would turn out back then.” His first year in the dorm, Joe’s dorm parent was Larry Lougee. His second year he had his hockey coach, Joe Marsh. The presence of Coach Marsh in not only his life but now in his son Steven’s is one of the circular moments that Joe is most amazed by. “If anyone ever would have told me that FALL 2019  •   HAMPTONIA  59

There were so many talented players in my two years. You would have thought we had a bunch of egos and individuals running around there, but it was the most cohesive team I had ever played on."

I would’ve played for Joe Marsh in what I thought would be his last season at New Hampton, and then many, many years later my son would be playing for him at New Hampton, I’d say that was an impossibility. And here we are.” Much like New Hampton credits its alumni for their support of the institution, Joe credits the people at New Hampton School for making the experience what it is, though he gives a considerable amount of credit to Coach Marsh for being one of the most influential and transformative figures in his time as a student. “He’s much more than a hockey coach… Google him. You can see he’s a hall of fame, division one coach, but he’s ten times the person than he is the coach. He was one of the funniest people I’ve ever met, but when it came to being on the ice, I’d never seen a group of people that would do anything for a coach. The team loved Joe Marsh.” Marsh’s coaching, presence on the team, and care for each of his players are what Joe attributes to his team’s historic success. Further, Marsh’s contributions didn’t stop once he got off the ice. He was a dorm parent and a math teacher. He even ran offseason conditioning workouts, something Joe admits was his least favorite part of his athletic career. “I could hardly make it, and he’d come back and laugh at me, in a good way. Even today, we still cut up about my lack of off-ice training ability. He just did it in a way that made you feel good.” The biggest compliment Joe had for 60  NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL  •  FALL 2019

Coach Marsh, however, and the lesson he carried with him through New Hampton and beyond, was the positive way he managed people. “There were so many talented players in my two years. You would have thought we had a bunch of egos and individuals running around there, but it was the most cohesive team I had ever played on. And that doesn’t happen when you have that much talent, but with Joe, it was all about the team. It wasn’t about the goals you scored or who was on the power play. He treated us all the same, and we were all equally committed.” This lesson was taught to Joe by his father, reinforced by his coach, and one he still lives by today. Joe’s 1979-1980 team was inducted into the hall of fame in 2008 for their incredible season. When asked about the memories or the adversity they faced, Joe says it’s difficult to distill any of that season into a single moment. “I don’t remember all the games. The highlight to me was the comradery. Playing with Ray Shero. My co-captain was Mark Leach, a great friend of mine still. I run into Steve Rich and Steve Rhodes and Dale Dunbar. I don’t have memories of a particular game, but the memories stem from just being on that icecold rink.” Unlike the hallmark sports stories which include obstacles, setbacks, tragedy, and conquest, Joe has no problem admitting the smooth sailing of his hockey career at New Hampton. The team’s successes were so great and so numerous under Coach

Marsh that the only memory that resembled adversity for Joe was a tournament they played at Choate. “Because of a goal differential we won the tournament, and the team that came in second stormed off the ice and was looking to find us to take matters into their own hands. I remember I was the last one out of the locker room and Joe Marsh said, ‘Get your stuff in the bag, Joe, we gotta get the hell out of here.’ But honestly, there was not a lot of adversity because of the way Joe handled the program.” Beyond his achievements in hockey, the lessons learned from his coaches, and the experiences with his teammates, Joe was a critical part of the New Hampton community at large. He earned the Meservey medal through his contributions to not only hockey, but to his service to the yearbook, to his peers as a senior class vice president, to the student body as a host of the school’s now extinct radio show (though he is reluctant to talk about that experience) and to even the softball team. “My second year, Mrs. Harvey was in charge of the girls’ softball team. She had never played and needed help, so she asked me if I would help with the team. The next thing you know, me and a hockey buddy, Eric Federer, ended up coaching the girls’ softball team. I had so much fun and took it so seriously, and our best player, is now a fellow trustee, Victoria Blodgett. She is a great person and friend, and it is just funny how it all comes full circle.” Reflecting back on the Meservey

medal, Joe thinks that the honor is about the breadth and effort of contributions to the school, and not the specific accomplishments of the individual. It is an honor he still thinks about, and one he does not take lightly. “The Meservey medal to me doesn’t mean hockey. It doesn’t mean academics. It doesn’t mean being a vice president. It means all of it, and doing all of it to the best of your ability. Was I the best at any of those? No, I wasn’t. But I probably worked as hard as anyone at all of those. I do remember getting that medal, and I do remember it being one of my proudest moments at New Hampton School.” However, in spite of these contributions, there was still a competitive drive pushing Joe toward this honor. “The year before my brother had won it, so there was a friendly competition. If he won it and I didn’t, he’d have one up on me.” The closest thing Joe has to regret when it comes to his New Hampton School experience is the recognition of how much it meant to him once he’d graduated. That’s why his greatest piece of advice to students is to stay present and take in the opportunity they have. “My son is going into his final year. I want him to enjoy the moment. Before you know it, you click the fingers, and he’s going to be getting his diploma, and he’ll be done. I try to tell him just to enjoy every aspect, whether it’s class, being a good dormmate or the people you meet. Enjoy every moment because it’s a unique environment and

you won’t get it again.” He hopes that not only his son but all current New Hampton students can live moment to moment, appreciating what they have. Joe is as good as any example as to what can happen when you leverage the New Hampton experience. Joe went on to attend Bowdoin College and play on their hockey team. He had experience playing their J.V. team, so he’d seen the campus and sensed what the institution was like. It matched the small school feel, the hockey reputation, and the opportunity for him to be successful in the classroom, much like he initially looked for at New Hampton School. In fact, he believes that the New Hampton experience helped him through the transition from secondary school to undergrad. “Having been away for two years, I grew up. When I first went to Bowdoin and rush week was going on, it was quite an experience. New Hampton taught me independence, and I decided that joining a fraternity at the time was not what I wanted to do. In fact, I stayed an independent at Bowdoin, and I think part of it was because I felt comfortable in my own skin.” Feeling unready to commit to a fraternity and focused on his academic and athletic career, Joe made the decision not to force himself into Greek life and stay the person he had grown into as a result of his two, formative years at New Hampton. After graduating from Bowdoin, Joe stepped into an uncertain job market, even more uncertain of what he wanted to do.

He returned to John Murphy, the coach who’d introduced him to Mike McShane and sent him down the path to become a New Hampton Husky. “My brother and I showed up at Coach Murphy’s house and talked about Bowdoin and Dartmouth, where my brother went, and talked about New Hampton, until he said, ‘So what are you guys going to do?’ I said to him, ‘Gee, I don’t know.’ I had only just graduated.” At the time, John Murphy, who had already established himself a successful businessman, was starting an automotive laboratory. The goal of the project was to test grey market vehicles, cars, and other automobiles imported through channels that are not the maker’s official distribution network. The laboratory would then convert these vehicles to D.O.T. and E.P.A. standards. Joe asked John for a job and took it on the spot. “I didn’t ask how much he’d pay me. I didn’t ask him anything. I thought, ‘wow, I get to work in a car lab.’ I had always enjoyed cars, so I figured sign me up.” Beyond the cars and the fact that he had a job, Joe was excited by the fact that he got to work with his hands for a living. In fact, he even admitted that science was his favorite subject at New Hampton for this very reason. “Science class was interactive. We did experiments. It was more hands-on than I was used to in Atlanta, and the classes were so small that I had to be engaged. Simply put, you could do things with your hands. Move around a little more.

I wasn’t one for sitting at a desk for an hour, which is another thing I am grateful to New Hampton for.” Joe pushed cars onto the dynamometer, tested their exhaust, and drove them, all while the business steadily grew around him. The lab got busier and busier until the owners decided someone needed to take the lead on running the business full-time. John Murphy, who was the principal investor, volunteered Joe. “Coach Murphy said, ‘Joe’ll do it.’ Well, the other three owners said, ‘this kid’s only been out of school a month, how are we going to let him run this automotive business?’ Coach Murphy replied, ‘Joe’ll do it.’ John was a physically imposing and strong-willed person. All the other investors decided that they would pick their battles.” Joe took on the responsibility of running the company, with supervision from his mentor John, while the other investors prepared to hire a replacement at any given moment. While he could consult with John, Joe admits that taking on this role was like being thrown into the fire. However, this gave him his first taste of running a business. “I figured out they needed to test about three cars a day to make money. And the thing about that was they put me on a commission. I thought that was great. I never really made any money growing up. My parents weren’t wealthy. Money wasn’t really important, but it was the challenge. I ended up keeping that lab open from about six AM to one or two in the morning every day. Testing six, seven, eight cars a day. Not so much for the commission. It was like playing hockey. I wanted to try to be the best.” This idea of being the best, not by monetary standards but by personal ones, is a sentiment that drove Joe through his entrepreneurial ventures. “I never thought I had to be the biggest. I always told myself to be the best. And I never measured best in terms of sales, or any of the other restaurant metrics. I based best off of if I had created the best Taco Mac. The best Peace, Love, and Pizza. I don’t really have a definition of what best is. It’s a feeling when things are clicking, and we’re hitting on all cylinders. I really wish I could tell you what ‘best’ is. It’s that gut feeling. I’ll know ‘best’ when I get there, but I can’t put a number to it.” Though Joe chooses not to use numbers to define success, his internal sense of best is inarguable and objectively proven through his achievements. After working in the lab for a little over a year, the industry started to shrink. Joe was grateful for the start John Murphy had given him but was now without a job and


in need of a new one. The problem was, he knew what he didn’t want to do. “I couldn’t see myself putting the suit and tie on, then grabbing a corporate job. I ended up hanging vinyl siding for a year, climbing up and down ladders trying to figure out what I was going to do next.” Joe and his younger brother David took an old truck, outfitted it with ladder racks, then proceeded to take odd jobs until he could figure out how this experience would be a stepping stone to the career he wanted. Little did Joe know that hockey, of all things, would send him down the path that made him the entrepreneur he is today. “I was playing on a pickup hockey team and met a guy named Greg Wakeham. He had a few Taco Mac restaurants in Atlanta. We became very good friends, and I ended up working in a Taco Mac as a cook.” How does a young man in his twenties transition from automobile laboratory manager to cook in just over a year? To Joe, it was simple. He was interested in the business. Well, how did he get a job as a cook without experience? His willingness to work hard. “Greg was an old school guy. He said if I was interested in learning the business, here’s an apron. I learned from the back of the house. I didn’t have any experience, so I couldn’t be a manager, and Taco Mac was very hands-on at the time. So the best way for me to learn was to dive right in. That meant cooking chicken wings and cleaning toilets and doing the paperwork in the morning until I was managing the kitchen and managing the house.” Though he remembers these moments fondly and appreciates all the lessons he learned starting at the bottom of the restaurant business, Joe points out that people have many misconceptions about the industry. “It’s not glamorous. Everyone thinks you’re going to go in and bring all your friends. Sit in the back. Drink a beer. But it’s a lot of hard work.” Joe worked through every restaurant job he could conceivably hold, learning more and more about the industry with every role he transitioned to. Without a lifelong love of hockey, Joe might not have ever gotten that opportunity to work at Taco Mac, and his humble beginnings in the restaurant industry with his friend Greg Wakeham had one final twist to it. “The funny thing is, Greg ended up sending his youngest son to New Hampton for a year. Just another New Hampton connection for you.” In 1987, Joe opened his first restaurant with Greg. In 1990, he opened more. After that, he decided to partner with his good friend Greg and take over Taco Mac together. That year Joe, Greg, and a third

partner, Bob Campbell, formed Tappan Street Restaurant Group. “We decided to make Taco Mac local. We took this thing that had three or four different ownership groups and consolidated everything. From there we grew it.” Though Joe would hesitate to measure what he and his partners accomplished by numbers alone, the results were self-explanatory. Taco Mac expanded to 28 different restaurants and earned over 90 million dollars in sales annually. Prior to Joe, Greg, and Bob’s involvement in the chain, Taco Mac did not have a corporate office. This absence provided Joe the opportunity to learn, as well as a challenge to overcome. “I like figuring things out. I like thinking, ‘If I want to grow my restaurant from one to two, to two to four, how can I do it? How can I get the rights to the brand, then turn it into a thirty restaurant chain?’ And we didn’t bring in consultants. We financed it on our own, and it was grassroots. We learned what it took to establish a corporate office, how to handle the legal, the accounting, the banking, site location, and construction. If we needed to figure out how to finance something, I’d go knock on bank doors. It was just a lot of fun.” Joe emphasizes the importance of fun in his learning process. While others in his position might collapse from the herculean efforts needed to both create and manage a selffunded, grassroots restaurant startup, Joe embraced it. He loved being a part of every aspect of the business, especially in such an intimate way. Beyond the challenge of solving problems and creating something, the restaurant industry spoke to Joe for other, equally important reasons. “I love moving. The restaurant industry reminded me a lot of playing hockey. You’re around a bunch of different people, and you have to work as a team. You have to find your power-play guys, and in the restaurant industry, you have to find the people you can rely on, the people that can stay in the back of the house and cook for seven, eight, ten hours. Who are the people that can deal with your customers? Every aspect is a challenge, and every day is new. New customers. New employees. New problems. New locations. It never got old.” For anyone looking for success, not only in the restaurant industry but anywhere, Joe has a few pointers. The first and most important lesson he reiterates from his father. “The hard work was the most important thing. Working 60 hours a week didn’t really bother me.” The second lesson comes from his coach, John Murphy, and it is to treat people with respect. “He told me to treat people the way I wanted to be

treated, and that is something I live by. In the restaurant business, there are people washing dishes and managers making six figures. I’ve done all those jobs, so I treat them all the same. The way I want to be treated.” The third is the development of his street smarts from the time he spent in every facet of the industry. “I didn’t have that corporate background. I learned by doing, by trial and error. What I had was the restaurant street smarts.” Finally, Joe has some parting wisdom about his relationship to failure. “When I was younger, starting restaurants, I couldn’t rub two nickels together. I wasn’t afraid of failure because I knew most restaurants failed. And trust me, I’ve shut down restaurants. Failure is part of the equation, but if you are afraid to fail, then don’t do it. Failure is the way you learn. You’re not going to win every game, you’re not going to open successful restaurants every time, so when that happens, figure out what happened, and lift yourself up by the bootstraps.” Joe has since sold Tappan Street Restaurants and has undertaken a new venture with his brother, a series of restaurants named Peace Love and Pizza. He follows his own advice to make this restaurant the best it can be. In 2016, Joe returned to New Hampton School as a board member and parent. In a moment, all too similar to his own experience as a teenager, his son Steven found himself at the end of what Atlanta hockey could offer him. Coincidentally, about that time, former Head of School Andrew Menke reached out to discuss supporting the school. With the stars aligning, Joe and his son, as well as Joe’s brother and his son, scheduled a visit to the school, got on an airplane, and from there they never turned back. “My son, at the time, was thirteen. Maybe five foot four. And I will never forget standing on that hill, looking out over campus by the gym, Steven looked me in the eye and said, ‘Dad, I’m coming here.’ I was chuckling about it, but sure enough, something was in the air.” Joe couldn’t be happier with his son’s experience. Not only because of the opportunities in the classroom and on the ice but because of the connections he has made. Specifically, the relationships he’s made with faculty. “One of the things I love about New Hampton right now is how close my son and his dorm parent Kevin Driscoll are. When Steven first came back home and was talking about how great and close he was with Driscoll, as he called him, I thought he was a student. Then I remembered I had a Driscoll. His name was Rob Moore. He was a young faculty fresh out of college too. It just brought back all these New Hampton memories. It wasn’t just my friends, the

Failure is part of the equation, but if you are afraid to fail, then don’t do it. Failure is the way you learn. You’re not going to win every game, you’re not going to open successful restaurants every time, so when that happens, figure out what happened, and lift yourself up by the bootstraps

Shero’s and the Leach’s, but the faculty too. As it turns out, Driscoll lives in Draper, and at the time, that’s where Rob Moore lived. One more of the many full-circle moments in my life.” While the decision to send his son to New Hampton seemed easy enough, Joe hesitated when it came to joining the board. Not because of his reluctance to serve New Hampton School, but because of his unwillingness to come up short in how much he could give back to the school. “I tend to stay away from that type of work because I never feel like I’m doing enough. I was afraid I wouldn’t contribute the way I wanted to. Then I found out Victoria Blodgett (Class of 1980) was on the board, and after we reconnected, she told me what she loved about the school, how the board was unpretentious, and about the twenty-five, good, hard-working people on it.” With that confirmation and his son attending New Hampton School the following year, Joe decided to take the leap and join the board. Like everything else in his life, he’s accepted this role with gratitude and gravity to all its responsibilities. “Now in my final month of board service, I think they’ll ask me to sign up for another three years, and I think I’ll be


happy to do that. I’ve enjoyed being able to give back and be involved. I love the school.” As not only a board member but a parent, Joe has an especially interesting relationship with the school. He sees the New Hampton experience on different levels, parallel, overlapping, and sometimes contradictory, but recognizing these moments of friction is what he views as part of his responsibility as a board member. “I talk to Steven’s friends a lot. I learn what they like about the school and what they don’t like about the school. It’s important to be honest. Board service isn’t lip service. It isn’t saying how great the school is. It’s trying to make it better.” To this end, Joe believes the work of New Hampton is far from done. There are ways in which the school can grow and ways in which it can improve, but many of these things involve returning to the school’s history, its DNA. “We need to embrace our past; embrace that student that isn’t at the top of their class but works hard and is willing to be a good member of the community. Maybe that student doesn’t have a 4.0. We’re doing academics a lot better

with the I.B. program, but the academic support program is a fantastic part of what New Hampton School is. Also, embrace athletics. It’s a big part of our history. It’s something we do well. I think we can be a great athletic school, as well as academic and everything else besides that.” Joe hopes, and as a board member intends to work toward, maintaining the continuity of the New Hampton experience, the thing that brings current and former students and faculty together to reminisce on all the significant moments of the past. He hopes that students in the future can find successes they never dreamt they could, just like he and his son have. “I see a kid who went from Atlanta, sitting in the back of the class, who didn’t raise his hand too much, to a kid who’s doing well in class now. Who’s not afraid anymore when maybe they used to be. And I appreciate New Hampton for what they’ve done there.” With nothing left to discuss, the conversation circles back to the present, a place that overlaps with where Joe began and where his son is about to depart. Joe laughs and says hopefully there are a few paragraphs in all his mumbo jumbo, then ends with one claim about the school, one that is humble, heartfelt, and resonant. “I am humbled by the people of the school. The Driscolls, the Connor Gormans, the Eric Przepiorkas, the Debenedictises, too many too list. All the people up there doing the hard work and not taking any of the glory. When I go up for the trustee meetings, I am just amazed by the people we have at this school. To me, those are the people who are the real heroes. Not me as a trustee. I hope I can give back in my own way, but they are the real heroes.” It is the people of New Hampton that make it the institution that it is, but Joe sells himself short. It is the people who return to the school, to commemorate, to reminisce, and to serve, that continue the New Hampton School legacy. Looking at Joe’s path to New Hampton and back, fringed with chance meetings and continued connections to the institution, one can see it is the ideal New Hampton story and one that reveals a fundamental truth. Once you embark on the path of New Hampton School, you find yourself walking on a curved line, one that will inevitably bend back and intersect itself. It just so happens that the school was lucky enough that Joe’s path brought him back full circle.

RALPH O’CONNOR ’44 A Benevolent Philanthropist AUGUST 27, 1926 – DECEMBER 30, 2018

Ralph S. O’Connor ’44, alumnus, civic leader, entrepreneur and longtime friend of New Hampton School died on Sunday, December 30, 2018, at his home in Houston, Texas at the age of 92. As a two-year student at New Hampton School, Ralph arrived at our campus in the fall of 1942 and remained closely connected to his alma mater throughout his professional life. As an adult, Ralph understood how his years as a student at New Hampton School and beyond laid the foundation for future success in his education, military service, and professional career. Ralph epitomizes both the art and the science of stewardship—what is possible when someone cares deeply about an institution and its community of people, so much so that giving back becomes a life priority. Ralph has forever changed the landscape of our school community with his wisdom, his business expertise, his passion for educating kids, and his desire to help others. Not only did he fund O’Connor House, a student and faculty residence on Caswell Lane, he also established the Ralph S. O’Connor Excellence in Teaching Prize. This prize is considered the most meaningful recognition among our faculty. For a teacher to know that his or her service to teaching has not gone unnoticed—that the work a teacher does each day makes a difference in the lives of our present students and the future of our alumni, is a powerful statement. 76  NEW HAMPTON SCHOOL  •  FALL 2019

The O’Connor Excellence in Teaching Prize recognizes a faculty member who is honored as a strong contributor by demonstrating such attributes as: setting the highest standard for their students while not abandoning them to their own resources; nurturing students inside and outside the classroom; and demonstrating a commitment to the student, the school, and the art of teaching. Ralph recognized that dedicated faculty are at the heart of our success, and thoughtfully ensured their recognition and celebration. Ralph’s final focus at our school was to ensure the ongoing success of O’Connor House; this representation of him on campus tells us much about his character and philanthropic connection in honoring New Hampton School with this gift. On occasion, Ralph visited campus after the house’s dedication, inquiring with students and faculty residents about how they liked it. Not a dorm—a word so commonplace on campuses—O’Connor House is genuinely a house and home, a community all its own but still so reflective of the beloved school community. We remain ever grateful to Ralph and his inspirational philanthropy to bettering school life. In the words of Head of School Joe Williams, “Ralph’s generosity and commitment to New Hampton has been both inspirational and transformative. His legacy will live on in special ways, for which we are eternally grateful.” Pictured above left: Trustee and former Board Chair Pete Galletly '73, P'09, Becky O'Connor, Ralph O'Connor '44, and former Head of School Andrew Menke P'12, '16 at the O'Connor House Dedication.

Celebrating the Life of WILLIAM L. YEAGER ’42 William L. Yeager died May 5, 2019 in Naples, Florida. He graduated from New Hampton School in 1942 and attended Brown University prior to World War II. Bill served in the United States Army Engineers in the south Pacific from 1942-1946; upon returning to the United States, he attended and graduated from Babson College. He was president and owner of TiecoUnadilla Corporation in Unadilla, NY. He was very supportive of his community and his leadership positions included: Board Member, Babson College; Board Member, New Hampton School; President and longtime secretary, Unadilla Rotary Club.

Bill and Barbara Yeager were faithful and generous supporters of New Hampton School throughout the years. When they were still traveling between Unadilla, NY and Naples, FL, the Yeagers always made time to stop by and visit New Hampton School every summer. Bill's commitment to his community was only superseded by the love and pride he had for his family and for his dedication to always being the most supportive father and "Grandad" he could be. He is survived by his wife, Barbara Jane Kite, his three daughters and sons-inlaw: eight grandchildren, and two greatgrandchildren.

Remembering Jinga: One of New Hampton School’s Dearest Friends and Stewards

NORMA JEAN (SMITH) MOORE Norma Jean (Smith) Moore, known throughout her life as Jinga, died peacefully at the age of 95 on September 17, 2019. As we reflect on her extraordinary life and many gifts to our school, it seems fitting that her passing is on New Hampton School’s anniversary. The school she loved dearly was founded 198 years earlier on September 17, 1821. Jinga and her two brothers grew up in New Hampton with their parents, Fred and Grace Smith, who led New Hampton School from 19261959. In her youth, she attended the one-room Village School in New Hampton, Bristol High School, and then the Bancroft School in Worcester, Massachusetts. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College in 1944. Later, she completed her master’s degree in Spanish at the University of New Hampshire in 1979. Jinga met T. Holmes “Bud” Moore when he was a student at New Hampton School, and they married in 1944 while Bud was on leave from the Navy. They came to live in New Hampton in 1946 where Bud became a member of the school’s faculty. While Jinga’s legacy is intimately tied to her identity as both the daughter of former Headmaster Fred Smith, and the wife of former Headmaster Bud Moore, Jinga’s story with the school stands on its own. Her story is one that we recall and celebrate with great fondness and gratitude. When Bud became headmaster of New Hampton School in 1959, Jinga graciously took on the traditional role of a headmaster’s wife. This position entailed many hostess duties during that era including meetings, dinners, and school events on and off-campus. As times and women’s roles shifted, Jinga’s position evolved, and she became a member of the school faculty as a teacher of Spanish and Latin, a coach, and a dorm parent. Jinga mentored countless students through the rough waters of adolescent life. For those that came to New Hampton from far away, she helped them adapt to a new place, cold weather, and lots of snow. For others, her support and ear in a difficult time made all the difference. She taught them to drive, took them to the dog sled races, and provided advice and guidance. She went well beyond her role as headmaster’s wife and faculty member. Jinga derived joy from her students’ antics and motherly pride in their accomplishments. Many people who grew up alongside the Moore children in New Hampton Village describe Jinga as a personal role model because of her love of the outdoors, the town, and its people. New Hampton School Trustee Victoria Blodgett ’80 remembers Jinga’s presence on campus



“I had a few opportunities to spend time with Jinga after I arrived at New Hampton School. She had something to share about each and every alumnus I had met in my travels, and she hung on every word I shared about the school. I am in awe of her lifetime of service to her students and our community, and the incredible impact she had on so many people during her extraordinary life.” - Joe Williams P'22, Head of School

during her days as a student. “Mrs. Moore was, in the truest meaning of the word, a very strong presence on campus. Seemingly everywhere and doing everything, she was respected as an educator first and foremost but adored as a protector, mentor, and friend. I don’t know how best to describe the ways in which she was a weaver of the fabric of New Hampton School and community. It’s as if all of the creatures and flowers and trees across campus knew her, and nodded as she walked by. We were so lucky to pass through her life, she being the constant in a community that changed faces so often. She opened herself to us as students—shared her home, her knowledge, stories, and her wit. She had high expectations of us all, which in retrospect was incredibly important. She was a source of unbounded energy who helped to make life for generations of young people more engaging. I forever remember the sound of her shoes, clicking out the fast-paced walk up the hill from Lane, glasses hanging by a chain, her red hair lit by the afternoon sun. She picked up her head, her face open and welcoming and said ‘Hello Vickie.’ She would never know that her greeting made my day, but it did. And that’s just one simple example of how she touched so many students every day.”

Hampton School reunion, always eager to be there for her former students and faculty. And they, too, came to Reunion to reconnect with her and celebrate her birthday, which frequently fell on that weekend in early summer. Jinga gave selflessly throughout her tenure at New Hampton School, and the school is a better place because of her.

Her loyalty to the school and its alumni and friends never faltered. Alumni frequently remember how she and Bud welcomed them into her home and provided love, support, and encouragement throughout their journey. For our dedicated and hard-working faculty, Jinga and Bud offered daily coffee for the faculty each day during the morning break, for nearly ten years. Jinga rarely missed a New

Jinga is survived by her children, Thomas H. Moore Jr. and his wife Tina of Rohnert Park, CA; Andrew S. Moore and his wife Susannah of New Hampton, NH; Jamyn Moore Sheff and her husband Paul of Boylston, MA; Robinson C. Moore and his wife Laura of Groton, MA; Elibet Moore Chase and her husband George of Warner, NH; and by fourteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Alongside Jinga’s constant advocacy and passion for New Hampton School, she was a teacher, historian, athlete, and steward of the local town and community in which she lived. She had a passion for languages. Jinga was an avid golfer, skier, and tennis player, and always took advantage of the outdoor recreational possibilities so accessible in New Hampshire. She was dedicated to music, singing in various groups, practicing the piano every morning, and attending myriad plays and concerts. Highly engaged in the community and region, she often shared her comprehensive knowledge of local history, regularly giving tours of New Hampton to visitors.

CL ASS OF 2019

Senior Class Gift For over ten years, the Senior Class at New Hampton School has honored the tradition of a class gift. This gift commemorates their time on campus as students and their support of future generations of learners. The work begins each fall with a small student-led committee, supported and guided by the Advancement team. Classmates are surveyed for gift ideas, and then they actively seek support for the project. As a first experience in peer-to-peer fundraising for many students, they learn valuable lessons along the way. Through their involvement from idea to execution, one of the takeaways is that their gift—whether $1 or $100—adds up to make a big difference in Husky Nation. This year, the Class of 2019 chose to leave their legacy on campus by fundraising for a sugar maple tree with a time capsule buried beneath it. The tree lends itself well to the established landscape on Academic Row, which is populated by several maples. The class intends to open their time capsule in 2069 during their 50th Reunion celebration. Thank you to all the members of the Class of 2019 that supported this gift to our school community.

SUSTAINING A LEGACY The Jennifer Shackett Berry ’83 Endowment Fund for Professional Development After 32 years at New Hampton School, Jennifer Shackett Berry ’83 retired at the end of this academic year. Jen has been a mainstay at New Hampton School, serving as a coach, advisor, teacher, dorm parent, and administrator. She has impacted countless lives as she dedicated her professional career to her students. Through her work, she became a mentor and role model to generations of students and co-workers. To honor Jen upon her retirement and help sustain her legacy, the school, together with Jen’s family, established The Jennifer Shackett Berry ’83 Endowment Fund for Professional Development. There is no better way to honor her many years of dedicated service than the creation of this fund, which will support the teachers she appropriately advocated for during her time at New Hampton School. Read about Jennifer Shacket Berry's retirement celebration on page 37.

THE ELLEN BROWN AND GEORGE WOOLSEY BIERLIN TRUST AND THE MR. AND MRS. WILLIAM EDWIN BIERLIN, SR. TRUST Once again this year, the income from the Mr. and Mrs. William Edwin, Sr. Trust and the Ellen Brown and George Woolsey Bierlin Trust supported faculty professional development in the areas of science, world language and English with a focus on International Baccalaureate training. New Hampton School remains deeply grateful to the Ellen Brown and George Woolsey Bierlin and the Mr. and Mrs. William Edwin Bierlin, Sr. Trusts for their support of the School’s commitment to provide a globally relevant curriculum.

When We Join Together The Class of 1969 Speaker Series Endowment Fund

The Class of 1969 Reunion Committee worked tirelessly in their effort to secure nearly thirty classmates combined with many more guests, spouses, and friends, to attend their 50th Reunion Weekend. In addition to returning to campus to join their friends, the class further recognized their milestone celebration as an essential time to give back to the school—the place which provided transformational experiences for so many of them. Through the contributions of twenty classmates, marking a total 27% participation, initial fundraising reached $50,869. With this gift, they established the Class of 1969 Speaker Series Endowment Fund. This fund will live in perpetuity at New Hampton School to commemorate the remarkable occasion of their 50th Reunion. The purpose of the Class of 1969 Speaker Series is to provide support for visiting speakers who bring experiential learning and life-lived experiences to today’s students. The series will accommodate a broad range of speakers from traditional professional and academic experiences to non-traditional contributions. In 2018, New Hampton School established two new Reunion Awards based on philanthropic support. These awards highlight the generosity of our alumni body who recognize the importance of giving back to today’s students, faculty, staff, and campus. The Exceptional Class Participation Award recognizes the Reunion class with the highest percentage of classmates supporting New Hampton School in a given year through a donation. The Outstanding Class Gift recognizes the reunion class with the largest collective contribution to New Hampton School during their reunion year. This year, we are pleased to present both awards to the 50th Reunion Class of 1969.

of Giving Wisely "When Carter and Kate first started at New Hampton School, the school motto was “Go Beyond.” To us, that meant New Hampton was encouraging their students to exceed their potential, pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone in all areas: academically, athletically, creatively, and socially. Ultimately, New Hampton School taught them how to learn, challenge themselves and to enjoy their experiences. As they pursued their next phase of life “go beyond” meant seeking their future at the next level, striving to continue to achieve their goals collegiately. New Hampton creates a foundation for success, guiding and supporting their students. The strong sense of community and connection that the faculty and staff offer is one part of what makes the school such a special place to us.


When we lost my husband and Carter and Kate’s dad in 2013, the support we received from the school was unmeasurable. I felt secure knowing the extended family at New Hampton would take great care in looking out for my kids well-being. It is with this in mind, we sat down and discussed the importance of New Hampton School to our family. There is no better way for us to show our love of New Hampton, than with continued support through our estate planning. Together, we decided to make a gift to New Hampton School, with the dream that our school will continue to guide, support and aid in the growth of future students, in the same beautiful way it did for us." – Holly Dillon P'15, '16


Many financial advisors are notifying their clients of potential double, or even triple, taxation that IRAs and other qualified retirement plans left to heirs may be subject to? Between federal income taxes, state income taxes, and possible state inheritance taxes, retirement plans can prove to be problematic for your children or non-spousal heirs. For that reason, many people are choosing philanthropy as their hard-earned assets’ beneficiary.

As we approach our Bicentennial, we have an incredible opportunity to honor and learn about our past. At the same time, our current strengths allow us to imagine the opportunities before us as we look to the next two-hundred years. — Joseph P. Williams P’22
