The landscape of education is changing, and Pingree is playing an important leadership role in that evolution. Knowing that the only certainty our students will face after graduation is uncertainty, we find ourselves reimagining the future—of learning, of programs, of teacher preparation, and of our mission at Pingree. There has never been a time of greater potential or greater challenges in education. We are grappling with the complex college-prep questions that pertain to educating and preparing students for lives of meaning, character, and consequence in an age with less certainty. To stay anchored in this journey, we continue to draw on the strength of our community—the courage, tenacity, empathy, and drive exhibited by our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The health and sustenance of relationships will be our lodestar on an exciting journey of innovation and change. We undertake this journey so that we can ensure that Pingree will thrive for decades to come. To take stock of where we stand on this pathway, I invite you to look no further than this issue of Pingree Magazine. Here you will find stories that illuminate our path forward—an in-depth look at our strategic Framework for the Future, an introduction to new members of our community, and achievements from the first half of our school year. You will read about real, tangible examples of a Pingree education at work today, alongside stories of our past that showcase alumni and the lifelong connections made within our community. In these pages, you can relive the excitement of this year’s Community Reunion and Deveney Golf Classic, as well as stay connected with our graduates through class notes. We are fortunate to share a progressive and inclusive common purpose at Pingree, and we are leveraging our independence and mission to write the future. This creative process is only possible with contributions from all members of the Pingree community, past and present, toward this exciting, horizon-stretching chapter in the history of our school. Read on! Tim Johnson, Head of School 4

What’s New Local L.A.B. Trips Engage Students Pingree’s Learning Across Borders (L.A.B.) program seeks to broaden the educational experience by bringing the classroom into the greater world. On October 9, 2018, each grade ventured out for a day with classmates—9th graders to Crane Estate for a beach cleanup, 10th graders to Mount Major for a hike, and 11th graders to the Kennedy Institute in Boston to learn more about civic engagement. Twelfth graders, meanwhile, used the day to work on college applications or make campus visits.

Pingree Votes Students, faculty, and staff turned out to exercise their civic duty by voting in Mock Election, hosted by Casey Finch and Rebekah Lofgren’s 2018 Election H-block (elective) class. For many students, the mock election marked their first opportunity to cast ballots.

IN THE HOUSE WHAT’S NEW

Sculpture Show a Success The ninth annual Flying Horse Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit was a resounding success. Featuring over 50 pieces from artists nationwide, this year’s show incorporated a free app with a self-guided tour of Pingree’s campus and information about the sculptures. Two of the artists, Setsuko Winchester (“Freedom from Fear/The Yellow Bowl Project”) and the Pickup Music Project (“Musical Fence”), spoke to students about the importance of art in public spaces to generate conversation and deeper thought. “Mouserati” was a hit among the younger crowd, featuring two mice making a getaway in a car made of woven branches and recycled bottles, and “Seat at the Table” by RAW Art Works, a student group out of Lynn, MA, evoked conversation about who is invited to the table when major decisions are being made. We look forward to the 10th iteration of the event, starting in September 2019, and invite you to join us!

PEOPLE, PACE, AND PLACE A strategic vision for Pingree School This fall, Pingree’s entire student body engaged in Grit ’n’ Wit—a campuswide obstacle course that required students to persevere intellectually and physically while working together, problem solving, and supporting one another. By the end of the competition, each team crossed the finish line with stronger relationships, pride in their school and their individual effort, and joyful excitement for the challenges ahead.

IN THE HOUSE FRAMEWORK

People Our Framework focus on people and growing endowment for tuition assistance and faculty compensation will reduce the annual pressure on tuition, sustain a commitment to equity and inclusion, and increase longterm financial stability. Objectives related to supporting our people include the following: • Growing endowment to ensure financial flexibility within the operating budget • Increasing endowed scholarships and faculty chairs • Utilizing human resources to track and communicate competitive compensation and benefits plans • Advancing a commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and equity by assessing efforts and measuring progress in people, policies, and program • Increasing time for professional and personal reflection • Developing teachers and school leaders from all backgrounds and sustaining the Pingree Fellowship Program • Cultivating a school environment where staff are trained in cultural understanding • Ensuring content and teaching reflect the identities of the greater world • Clarifying and communicating civic engagement and service learning programs

This student-centered snapshot of our community in action serves as the perfect metaphor for the strategic work that is currently happening on campus with our teachers, staff, trustees, parents, and alumni. The launch of the Framework for the Future—our guiding strategic vision—is a clarion community call for all Highlanders to engage! Pingree has developed incrementally, humbly, and intentionally since our founding almost 60 years ago. From the very beginning, led by the vision of Mary Weld Pingree; Dick Harte, founding board chair; and Robin Rogers, founding Head of School, there has been an unwavering focus on caring relationships, meaningful learning experiences, character development, and humility, all in a house that still feels like a home to students. These qualities provide sustenance to the healthy roots of Pingree’s culture today, and they situate our school in a position of unprecedented historic strength, supported by the sustained efforts of current and past colleagues, students, parents, trustees, and alumni. This summer, in response to our recent NEASC accreditation report, the Commission on Independent Schools wrote, “We offer sincere compliments to you for your thoughtful, intentional, and mission-driven student experience. Pingree is clearly living out its devotion to the care and growth of each one of its students. It’s clear the School has absorbed the mantra ‘one size fits nobody’ and has gone about an exceptionally mindful and sensitive approach to meeting the needs of its students while creating a humane and reasonable community for everyone. Pingree has distinguished itself by the love Pingree students express for their school and the care and devotion the leadership, faculty, and community demonstrate every day. Your School is a distinct credit to the landscape of independent education.” Harnessing this unique praise, we now accept the call to lead. Meaningful change happens in education when institutions walk a narrow, strategic path between the status quo and radical change, constantly piloting compelling ideas that breathe life into the school, and, over time, influence the broader educational landscape. We are well positioned in this respect. Our Pingree


IN THE HOUSE FRAMEWORK

Fellowship Program for aspiring teachers, 50-plus H-block electives, over 40 Local L.A.B. (Learning Across Borders) experiences, sustained equity and inclusivity efforts, and comprehensive commitment to service and professional development are but a few recent progressive examples of innovative pilot programs. Yet we face many of the fundamental challenges that confront all leading independent and college prep schools across the country. How will we prepare students for college when the purpose of higher education and the requirements for the world of work are more in flux than ever? How will we adapt our tuition, program, and financial model to ensure that we are accessible, equitable, and inclusive? How will we prioritize time for deep reflection and critical thinking in an increasingly harried world of overflowing schedules? How will we assess competence and continue to be a place of safety and joy while acknowledging that the sweat and toil of hard work are essential for growth? How will we afford students vital space to learn from failure when the stakes for missteps seem too high? Guided by our NEASC Self-Study Report in 2015; the Accreditation Report in 2016; comprehensive parent, student, and alumni surveys administered

within the last few years; and ongoing dialogue with community members across all constituent groups, three strategic areas of focus emerged: People, Pace, and Place. These three areas form the nucleus of our Framework for the Future, which will inform annual goals in the years ahead and assist us in responding to the exhilarating questions of our time. First, we commit to supporting the members of our community in perpetuity. We have made steady progress over the last decade with tuition assistance and faculty compensation, affording over one-third of our families tuition assistance and moving our teachers into competitive ranges

Pace Our Framework focus on pace will further sustain an educational environment that emphasizes curious examination and a reflective integration of ideas, values, skills, and creative expression. Objectives related to pace include the following: • Fostering a love of learning and joy in all program initiatives

• Developing clear and explicit wellness programming for both students and adults

• Evaluating methods and timing of assessments with a focus on individual development

• Considering how technology enhances and/or hinders a healthy pace at school

• Addressing the external factors that contribute to challenges with pace, partnering with colleges and universities

• Dedicating time and resources to support school spirit and community

• Revisiting the calendar to identify opportunities for thoughtful consideration of responsibilities and events

• Acknowledging the tireless efforts of our students, faculty, and staff

FALL 2018 | WINTER 2019

13


Place Our Framework focus on place will afford our teachers and students with the best possible learning, athletics, and social spaces. Objectives related to place include the following: • Utilizing the Campus Master Plan to enhance learning and social spaces around campus, including the utilization of our vacated Weld Gym • Enhancing auxiliary programs to introduce the broader community to Pingree and increase revenue from non-tuition sources • Defining, expanding, and measuring environmental sustainability and stewardship efforts • Developing and prioritizing our campus maintenance list, utilizing the Campus Master Plan

for salaries and benefits. However, these increases have been funded almost entirely through tuition increases that have at times outpaced inflation. These circumstances strain our mission-driven goal to be accessible to all deserving families, requiring us to stretch our budget for tuition assistance in the pursuit of academic excellence for all. Additionally, the shifting role of teaching is prompting us to rethink how to hire, retain, and develop educators who will have different responsibilities with respect to their students and how they learn. Second, we are prioritizing health, wellness, and deep reflection. We will remain a progressive school for critical thinking, character development, and personal growth. As education evolves, we further commit to providing the pace and space for meaningful learning experiences. Most recently, this has been evident in a revised academic schedule and trimester calendar change that promotes a more intentional pace. This then cultivates routines that prepare students and adults to reflect, thrive in ambiguity, solve problems, and cultivate empathy. And third, we continue to enhance our learning and social spaces. We are incredibly fortunate to enjoy a beautiful campus, and we have made steady progress stewarding our physical plant over the years. Thanks to generous support from many in the community, over the last 10 years we have built a new arts addition, athletics center, dining commons, and turf field, in addition to ongoing

FALL 2018 | WINTER 2019

renovations to classrooms, the library, and student spaces. These improvements have been vital to our program evolution; we look forward to staying nimble and responsive to needs fulfilled by our classroom and educational resource spaces, study areas, and facilities. The best expression of gratitude we can offer to our predecessors and students is an earnest effort to remain both aspirational and rooted in a commitment to caring for and challenging adolescents in an ever-evolving independent school landscape. If not now, when? If not us, who? This is our calling. Through the purposeful dialogue and meaningful relationships that have always defined our school, we strive to be a shining light of progress in a sea of elusive questions about the future of education.

Improv Troupe Sets the Stage for Inclusivity New to the Pingree stage this fall is Improv 2 Improve, a forum theater group using improvisation to promote change and inclusivity. Forum theater is unique in that audiences are meant to engage with the actors on stage, and the pieces are created with the intention of stimulating dialogue. Whether engaging in workshops with faculty members, entertaining on the Pingree stage, or performing at Beverly’s Human Rights Committee’s International Human Rights Day Celebration, the group is passionate about their mission: to bring to light issues of inequity and help others to act with empathy. Improv 2 Improve was founded this year by Pingree’s Theater Director Arlynn Polletta. “As a theater educator, I’m interested in how theater can be a functional and impactful teaching tool.… There are students here who are passionate about social justice work, so I thought now would be

the right time to try [forum theater] and see what happens.” Recently performed scenes have explored unhealthy teen relationships and financial inequity; pieces reflective of life at Pingree included scenes about dissenting opinions in Advisory groups and navigating challenging feelings about spaces on campus. All of the scenes are written by students and drawn from their actual experiences, and that authenticity seems to be well received—so much so that the group has been asked to perform and work with students at local schools Brookwood and Glen Urquhart.


The development of Improv 2 Improve has been impactful for the actors as well as the audiences. Arlynn says that she’s seen the students grow tremendously since joining the activity, exhibiting more self-awareness and confidence. “This group has taught me so much,” said Annabelle Delaluna-Howard ’22. “The skits really reflect what happens in classrooms at Pingree. . . . The work has really helped me understand people and [the situations that] can affect them.” Though Improv 2 Improve began as a season-long afternoon activity, its success has proven its potential for longevity. “It was a wacky idea that I brought to [Head of School Tim Johnson] last year,” Arlynn said. “The fact that it’s become something that a lot of the people in the community have found powerful and that the students feel so good about is more than I could ask for.”

Driving Out Hate Through Art What do a collection of hand-painted tea bowls and the personal reflection of a child soldier have in common? Together, they represent art’s capacity to disrupt feelings of oppression, drive out hate, and inspire hope for the future.

This academic year, the Pingree community committed to exploring together the question of what it means to be an American. On our path toward understanding, ceramicist Setsuko Winchester and Cambodian genocide survivor Arn Chorn-Pond, both arts activists, addressed our community to share their perspectives and stories. Japanese-American artist Setsuko Winchester is recognized for her creation of the Freedom from Fear/ Yellow Bowl Project, an installation representing the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII. Her piece, which was included in Pingree’s Flying Horse Sculpture Show, features 120 hand-pinched and painted yellow tea bowls, each representing 1,000 Americans imprisoned during the war. Over the past three years, Setsuko has installed and photographed the bowls at the ruins of the 10 internment camps where JapaneseAmericans were incarcerated, as well as five venues that she felt represented freedom from fear. For Setsuko, undertaking this project was as much an act of selfdiscovery as it was activism. While the Yellow Bowl Project has afforded Setsuko the opportunity to learn about her heritage and the past, it has also given her the courage to lean into what she sees as a key role in preventing future injustices: speaking up for those who cannot. “Staying silent, once I knew this story, would be helping to create the possibility that this could happen again,” Setsuko said. “We’re supposed to learn from history.” Her hope is that the Yellow Bowl Project will generate conversation about what it means to be an American, helping people to accept our country’s complicated and flawed history and inspire them to be vigilant in their protection of one another and the rights that we hold dear. “Sometimes the hardest things to change are the bad things that good men do,” Setsuko said. This flawed response to immigrants to America can exist on multiple levels. Take, for example, Arn ChornPond, who has experienced many hardships in his life. Imprisoned in a concentration camp during the Cambodian genocide, his ability to play propaganda songs on the wood flute for his captors became the key to his survival. As a conscripted child soldier in the Khmer Rouge, he was required to wield guns in defense of those who savagely separated him from his family. And he also spent months wandering through the jungles of Vietnam, alone, afraid, and desperate for escape. But when asked


“Peace will not start from anyone else. Start it from you.” — Arn Chorn-Pond

to describe the hardest time in his life, Arn might reveal that one of his biggest challenges was life as a teenager in America. In 1980, Arn was adopted by American missionary Peter Pond, who relocated him from Thailand to suburban New Hampshire. Despite a slew of medical issues resulting from his time in captivity—a broken arm that never set, cerebral malaria, and strongelitis, a microscopic worm that contributed to his malnutrition—the vast majority of Arn’s trauma was emotional, hidden from his classmates at the predominantly white public high school he attended. He looked different and spoke no English, factors that made him a target for bullies. “They came like bees,” he said. “They were stunned, and I was stunned, too. I didn’t know why I was here. . . . It seemed like no one knew anything about what had happened to me or Cambodia.” Arn struggled through his adolescence: fights, arrests, and even thoughts of suicide. His turning point was seeing his father, Peter, cry for the first time, distraught by his son’s behavior. Arn was ashamed and devastated: “[My father] knew that I had survived the jungles of Cambodia but that I might not survive the jungles

of New Hampshire.” In an act of desperation, Peter recommended that Arn give his testimony at the family’s church, and he taught him, word by word, the language with which to do so. Although Arn initially feared that no one would care about what he had endured, he began sharing his life’s story. Speaking gave him a renewed sense of purpose, and he found that his message of resilience was universally applicable. Perhaps most important, empowering others to maintain hope in the face of adversity—whether in the jungles of Cambodia or in the inner cities of America—fed his spirit. Eventually, his career led Arn back to Cambodia, where he now lives and works with Cambodian Living Arts, an organization he founded to preserve Cambodia’s endangered performing arts traditions and heritage, another casualty of the genocide. His position allows him to work with children, sharing with them the joy of music and promoting peace through the arts. “It’s a big world out there; be informed. Be sensitive to who you sit with, and ask people about where they come from.” Arn said. “Peace will not start from anyone else. Start it from you.”

INSIDE ATHLETICS RIVALRIES FOR THE AGES

Rivalries for the Ages The Pingree/Wheeler rivalry originated in 1965 with field hockey. In the fall of 1969, Pingree/Wheeler Day was born, featuring a day of competition between the two schools. The varsity teams compete for silver bowls that stay with the winning team for the year, and a plaque is awarded to the overall winner of the day. The games are played to honor the memory of Marjorie Burrall, who served as Athletics Director at both Pingree and Wheeler. Marjorie, who was known for her great enthusiasm and love of sport, was killed in an automobile accident in 1969. A commemorative stone in front of the school dedicated to her bears the inscription, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” This year marked the 49th annual Pingree/Wheeler games on October 13; since 2000, the overall Wheeler Day standings are Pingree: 12, Wheeler: 5 Beginning in 1990, Concord and Pingree have competed in multiple sports one day each fall, and the overall winner takes home the Chandler Bowl, named in honor of former Pingree Head of School John Chandler. While the contests are always spirited, the schools also use the day to support organizations of the home school’s choosing. In the past, the Chandler Bowl has raised money and awareness for Special Olympics, Northeast ARC, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, alumnus Tom Smith’s Just Cure Paralysis, Cerebral Palsy of MA, and the Boys and Girls Club of the Rosebud Reservation. This year, Concord Academy student leaders chose to support Samaritans, an organization that provides suicide prevention services including 24/7 crisis hotline services, grief support, and community education. Teams warmed up wearing t-shirts to help raise awareness of and donations for the cause.

INSIDE ATHLETICS CUM LAUDE CERMEMONY


INSIDE ATHLETICS NEW COACH

Highlanders Thrive Under New Coach When Mike Flynn joined Pingree School as head football coach, he had a familiar feeling—something he recognized from his 11 seasons squaring off as an offensive lineman with the Baltimore Ravens … Nerves. This fall, Mike, a Super Bowl champion, picked up the baton from Chris Powers, the team’s founding head coach. Under Chris’s guidance and stewardship, the football program achieved an impressive record, including two New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) bowl championships, and producing more than 20 NCAA football players.

Returning to the field has long been a dream for Mike, who spent most of his career with the Baltimore Ravens before retiring. “Football has been very good to me,” Mike said. “I’ve wanted to coach for a while, but the biggest issue has always been time.” Circumstances aligned when two of his four children— 6-year-old twins—began school full-time, and this position became available. Located just one mile from

I was scared. How do I win these kids over, get their buy-in, and get them to believe in me? Quite honestly, I was also apprehensive about the staff. I needed them and had to put trust in them, but I didn’t know what the response would be. I’m a competitive person, and the fear of failure is always big with me.” — Mike Flynn

FALL 2018 | WINTER 2019


With a successful season behind them, the Highlanders are looking forward to what’s next on the horizon.

his home in Wenham, the job at Pingree offered Mike the opportunity to scratch his dormant itch for competition while remaining active and engaged in his family life. “As a senior, you don’t want to hear that your coach is leaving, but Coach Flynn stepped in and we all bought in to what he was selling: winning, fun, and determination,” said Eric Adinkra ’19, one of the team’s four captains. The support of the team and coaching staff—as well as the impact of his leadership—was evident in the way the season played out. The Highlanders achieved an undefeated regular season, a marked improvement from the prior season’s 4–4 finish. The team ultimately secured the 2018 Evergreen League Bonnefond Division championship and a NEPSAC Ken Hollingsworth Bowl runner-up finish, falling only to St. Paul’s, another undefeated team. Although it’s impossible to pin down just one factor in the team’s success—Mike is quick to acknowledge that his is a team of strong and capable players—at least part of their performance can be attributed to Mike’s coaching style, which is heavily influenced by his experiences as a professional

athlete. “He’s just one of the guys in the huddle with us, and because of that, we felt comfortable around him and were able to learn a lot while also competing at a high level and having fun,” said Vito Visconti ’19, a team captain. Mike’s player perspective has been key to helping him to maximize time in practices, shape more efficient physical play, and craft a pro-style offense, an innovative departure from other high school football teams. Both Eric and Vito cite Mike’s offensive strategy as helping them grow into more powerful and efficient players. This potent cocktail of influences helped the team to fight through tough showdowns this season. During a game against Dexter Southfield, Pingree started strong but found itself tied in the third quarter. The Highlanders’ determination and resilience paid off with a win in overtime, as they scored a touchdown in the final play of the game. Mike cites the win against Dexter as the best he’s felt competitively in a while. “I thanked the guys for that, because I hadn’t had that feeling in a long time,” he said. With a successful season behind them, the Highlanders are looking forward to what’s next on

the horizon. This spring, the team will graduate several prominent seniors, including all four of its captains: Eric and Vito, as well as Alexander Suny ’19 and Grant Latimer ’19, who has already signed to play NCAA lacrosse at Providence College next year. “I hope I brought out the best in them,” Mike said. “These guys were already great players, but I hope I gave them an experience they’ll remember.” What will happen next season remains to be seen, but by all accounts, the stars are aligned for a bright future.


Achieving Success with Independent Study One of the things that makes Pingree so special is that students and faculty alike are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zones. For some students, this takes the form of crafting independent athletic studies, pursuing a passion during one or more athletic seasons in the place of a Pingree-offered team sport. Three members of the Class of 2019 have achieved widespread recognition through their independent studies: Victoria Carlson in synchronized swimming, Libby LeStage in horseback riding, and Lily Rauh in figure skating. For each of these athletes, the option to continue their competitive athletics through an independent study was a major incentive for attending Pingree. The flexibility in their academic schedules allowing them to commute to outside facilities and travel to competitions along the East Coast, as well as 28

Victoria Carlson Now in her 11th year of engaging in the sport, Wenham native Victoria Carlson (pictured far left) competes in synchronized swimming with ANA Synchro, a team based out of the Andover/North Andover YMCA. During the winter, she can be found flying down the slopes with Pingree’s ski team, splitting her time between skiing and synchro. This past April, she competed at the U.S. Junior National Championships, swimming in four events and placing third overall with her team, third overall in combo (an event that involves 10 swimmers executing elaborate lifts and throws), and fourth in duet. Her success has been hard won: she spends an average of 19 hours each week in the pool, as well as an hour and a half in the car daily, during which she reviews videos from her prior practices and competitions, looking for areas of improvement—though Victoria admits this would also be a great time for completing schoolwork. Victoria urges her fellow students to create new opportunities. “If something doesn’t quite fit, you can make it [fit], whether it’s an independent sport, a club, or science project,” she said. “If there is something [you are interested in doing], you can find a way to do it.” She goes on to applaud her teachers for being so open-minded and supportive of her passions. We can’t wait to see what the spring competition season has in store for Victoria!

Lily Rauh For Lily Rauh (center), the road to Eastern Sectional Figure Skating Championships this year started when she was only three years old—and wearing hockey skates. Lily became a competitive figure skater in seventh grade and now skates with three clubs. The Andover native practices year-round, sometimes not arriving home until 9 or 10 o’clock on school nights. This has required her to hone her time-management skills and leverage the strong relationships she’s developed with her teachers to accomplish her academic goals. Last season, Lily was in fourth-place standing at regionals after the short program and on the verge of moving on to the Eastern competition, when another skater landed a jump that bumped Lily to fifth and out of advancing. “That was the fuel for me this season—to overcome that disappointment and push for a comeback performance,” Lily said. Her efforts on and off the ice catapulted her to a third-place finish at the New England Regional Figure Skating Championships held in October in Boston and then to 11th at the 2019 Eastern Sectional Figure Skating Championships in November in Wake Forest, NC. At this point, Lily is jointly pursuing competing with the national teams of the United States and Israel (she is eligible for Israeli citizenship). She is in talks with the Israeli Skating Federation about the possibility of skating in Israel, which would afford her more opportunity to compete internationally. She will likely decide this spring the direction in which her dreams will take her.

Libby LeStage When she was six years old, Libby LeStage’s (far right) grandmother took her to a barn and showed her a pony. From that moment, Libby says, she knew that horseback riding was her thing. Living in South Hamilton and riding at Cornerstone Farm in Haverhill, Libby commutes an hour and a half every day to her chosen activity. The family vacations and campus weekend activities she’s sacrificed over the years in order to pursue her passion have paid off. Libby was the 2018 Reserve Champion at the United States Equestrian Foundation (USEF) Junior Hunter Championship in Lexington, KY. After turning 18 in December—a milestone in the life of a junior rider, as it marks the cutoff point for that category—Libby says she is particularly proud of her 11th-place finish at the 2018 New England Equitation Championships, which ended her career as a junior-level rider on a high note. As for what comes next, Libby has decided to take a gap year before starting college in order to ride, travel, and work. This winter, she’ll compete in Florida in hopes of qualifying for August’s International Hunter Derby Finals as an adult. She expects it to be her last major competition. FALL 2018 | WINTER 2019

INSIDE ATHLETICS CAPTURING THE ACTION

Capturing the Action: Behind the Scenes with Pingree’s Student Media Producers If a picture is worth a thousand words, what’s the conversion rate for a 30-second hype video? And how much more value comes from the raucous cheers of Pingree students urging their Highlander peers into athletics success? Capturing the energy and spirit of the crowd is the forte of Chris DeBlasio ’20, Brandon Greenstein ’21, and Brendan Willett ’21. After a serious arm injury left him unable to play sports for two seasons, Chris decided to try his hand behind the camera. After years of watching his older brother stage and execute photo shoots of surfing, landscapes, and daily life, Chris quickly discovered his own photography talent. This fall, his images have been featured in the weekly e-newsletter and promotional initiatives for Pingree’s Advancement and Admission offices. David Goff, Pingree’s staff photographer and French teacher, mentored Chris and partnered with him to capture athletics images. “Chris was instrumental in capturing the life of the athletics action this fall,” David said. “His keen eye and budding passion for photography continue to be the talk of the school!” Brendan and Brandon specialize in videography, working together to show the energy of the spectator experience. Brendan’s filming skills and Brandon’s editing chops have resulted in some of the most dynamic Pingree hype videos in recent memory. Both were drawn to Pingree for its strong arts program, and they have found opportunities to showcase their love of video production and mentors to help them advance their skills. Brendan writes and publishes his own music with guidance from music teachers Eric Haltmeier and Phil McGowan. He credits them with helping him to learn the ropes of intellectual property law, discussing with them the fine line between sampling other artists’ compositions and copyright infringement. Brandon works closely with Technical Theater instructor Crystal VanArtsdalen, running lights and sound for student performances and auxiliary rentals in the theater. In doing so, he’s learned to shape audience perspectives through subtle changes, insight that now informs his video work.

Be on the lookout for more work from these three outstanding student media producers, starting with their Instagram takeovers. Follow along using #highlandertakeover!

Congratulations to Tom Smith, the 2018 Mimi Davis Emmons ’64 Alumni Association Award recipient!

Mimi Davis Emmons ’64 Alumni Association Award Recipient: Thomas E. Smith ’08 Pingree School’s Alumni Association Award was established in 1982 and renamed the Mimi Davis Emmons ’64 Alumni Association Award in 1999 to honor the contributions of an alumna turned longtime employee upon her retirement. The biennial award recognizes a Pingree graduate who has, through extraordinary effort and dedicated service, made a significant contribution to the quality of life of his or her school, community, or society as a whole. This year’s recipient, Thomas E. Smith ’08, through his namesake organization, has dedicated his life to spreading awareness of spinal cord injuries and advocating for changes in hockey to promote safety. A lifelong hockey player with dreams of competing professionally, Tom was forced to trade his dream for his calling after three unrelated spinal cord injuries (two while playing hockey and one during a car accident) left him paralyzed. With renewed purpose, Tom founded the Thomas E. Smith Foundation with the mission of enhancing the lives of those living

with paralysis. Additionally, he created The Look-Up Line, an innovative warning system that gives players the opportunity to adjust their bodies before hitting a solid object—preventing the types of injuries Tom suffered. Exhibiting extreme self-determination, Tom also completed the 2018 Boston Marathon, where he walked the full course in rain, sleet, and high winds. This fall, while attending his 10th reunion festivities in the company of his family and former classmates, Tom’s relentless drive, perseverance, and motivation to beat the odds were recognized with this year’s award. Congratulations to Tom Smith, the 2018 Mimi Davis Emmons ’64 Alumni Association Award recipient!

HEDGE GARDEN IN MEMORIAM

In Memoriam Norm Regan Former Pingree staff member Norman A. “Cookie” Regan, 73, died on Saturday, November 24, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers following a brief illness. He was the devoted husband of Bonnie (Gilbert) Regan, with whom he shared over 48 years of marriage. Born in Everett, he was the son of the late Daniel T. and Norma S. (Ulwick) Regan. He was a lifelong resident of Peabody and a graduate of the Peabody Vocational School, Class of 1963. In 1984, Norm joined the Pingree School building and grounds department, serving for more than 30 years as a dedicated team member and retiring as the maintenance supervisor. He was considered a “jack of all trades” who enjoyed every aspect of his skill set, from electrical work to carpentry, which he practiced both at Pingree and at home for his family and friends. Norm was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching NASCAR and the New England Patriots. His favorite moments, however, were spent with his family, especially during the Christmas season, bringing lots of joy and laughter to one and all.

Patricia Foley Karl P’91, ’98 Patricia Foley Karl, former Pingree parent and integral partner to Prep@Pingree, passed away on November 28, 2018. She was a lifelong educator whose devotion to enriching the educational experience of the underserved will be missed. Patricia’s career in education began in Arizona, where she spent a year volunteering as part of the Regis Lay Apostolate. She then returned to Massachusetts, where she taught in Andover Public Schools and Bruce School in Lawrence. In 1985, she moved to the nonprofit sector, serving as Lawrence Coordinator for NECCUM (the Northeast Consortium of Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts) before becoming Executive Director of Lawrence Youth Commission. In that capacity, she established the Lawrence Family Development and Education Fund Inc., a nonprofit organization that aims to strengthen families and build community. Patricia founded Lawrence Family Development Charter School, one of the first schools of its kind in Massachusetts; YouthBuild-Lawrence, an education/job training program for low-income households; and the Maria del Pilar Quintana Center, which provides ESL and citizenship classes for immigrants. Outside of the office, Patricia served as a key advisor to the Malcolm Coates Prep@Pingree program, with which she had been affiliated since 2002. Her strategic expertise and deep connections within Lawrence were instrumental to driving that program forward. Additionally, she served on the boards of Greater Lawrence YWCA, Mary Immaculate Health Care Services, Charles G. Pringle Foundation, and Essex County Community Foundation. Patricia is survived by her husband, Russell; children Kristin, Jennifer ’91, Stephen ’98, and their spouses; five siblings; eight grandchildren; and countless relatives and friends. *Through December 31, 2018.


2017–2018

Annual Report of Giving Dear Pingree Community, We are delighted to present the 2017­–2018 Annual Report of Giving in celebration of your generosity and devotion to the success of Pingree School. Philanthropy has a direct, and virtually limitless, impact on our school, and your support plays a critical role in shaping the experiences of each and every Pingree student. The 2017–2018 academic year was one of considerable progress and achievement. Together, we raised more than $4 million for Pingree this fiscal year. Additional milestones to highlight include the following: • Our school was the beneficiary of a $2.5 million bequest earmarked for endowed financial aid; this gift will fund two full scholarships for deserving Pingree students in perpetuity. • The Pingree Fund, the cornerstone of annual philanthropy at Pingree, raised more than $1 million for the fourth consecutive year. • An additional $500,000 was raised this year for phase one of the turf field project, bringing the total raised for the project to $2.1 million. • We experienced another record-setting Giving Day, an online one-day community fundraising initiative. Thanks to incredible enthusiasm from alumni volunteers, faculty, staff, we secured 597 gifts in 24 hours and unlocked $50,000 in matching gifts. • Approximately $80,000 was raised for our rowing program this year, including the gift of two new shells in honor of John Glessner and John Pingree. We are grateful to have such an engaged community of excited students, dedicated faculty, involved parents, a forward-thinking Board of Trustees, and ever-supportive alumni. Thank you for all that you do to make Pingree extraordinary and to sustain its legacy into the future. With gratitude,

Timothy M. Johnson Head of School 48
