we will not soon forget

an Autumn

We had a memorable fall term at Suffield. We will not soon forget the five-day power outage in Connecticut, which started for us on the day of our Alumni Reunion. Brinley Ford Ehlers ’86 and other Class Agents did a masterful job of helping convince a record number of alums to return to campus for a special few days. Here are two notes that capture what we experienced together: Charlie, We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed spending time at Suffield this past weekend. We especially enjoyed getting to know you and your family. We could not have scripted a better time... the storm was awesome! Sledding on Bell Hill with my daughter?! WOW! Suffield was and continues to be a special place for me. -Mark Sollinger ’76 Our 50th Reunion illustrated a “time warp” to reignite friendships and personalities that had diversified and matured over five decades (yet in many ways had not truly changed) and fast forward into an environment of elevated experience—the massive infrastructure improvements; the leadership program; the outdoor program; and perhaps most importantly witnessing a campus full of excited, diverse, and happy individuals. -Mike Menzies ’61 On the final day of our power outage, as our faculty and students on campus bonded together with the good fortune of generator power, Board President Dan Tisch ’69, P’02 hosted a Suffield reception in Manhattan. Among alumni, parents, faculty, and friends of the school we discussed Suffield’s recent achievements and plans for the future, including the opening of the Hoffman College Counseling Center and the implementation of an exciting new four-year college counseling program. I received this note from a current parent the following day, as we started returning to our normal campus routines. You throw a cool party with enough enthusiasts to rebuild the town, as well as the campus. I was very impressed with the commitment and the loyalty you have generated. I was inspired, and my mood amid my own disasters has noticeably improved. Again my thanks. My family was lucky to find its way to your doorstep. Not all of my mail is this encouraging, but I should say that most of it reflects similar feelings. There is something unique about Suffield—especially at this moment in its history—that we need to preserve and care for closely. I have thought a good deal this fall about an area of modern study focused on “negativity bias” in human behavior. This is the idea that a genuinely happy life does not happen without effort. We are hardwired to register and remember negative events more readily than positive ones. The essential claim is that anger and fear are easier for us to access than happiness and fulfillment. Jonathan Haidt reiterates this message in The Happiness Hypothesis, explaining that a portion of our brain known as the amygdala has a neural shortcut that bypasses our standard mental processes, instantly putting our body into “red alert” if it detects a pattern that was part of a previous fear episode. In other words, our bodies reflexively react defensively (via the quick amygdala path) in the first tenth of a second before we can make sense of an event. As neuropsychologist Rick Hanson writes, “The brain is like Velcro for negative experiences and Teflon for positive ones.”

a genuinely happy life does not happen without effort

I think seeing is believing. Suffield exceeded our expectations. Before we even walked into the admissions office four girls welcomed us. During our tour at least ten people said hello. It is such a friendly and positive atmosphere. We all want Suffield. One recent letter from the father of a family that interviewed at Suffield during the power outage has really stuck with me. They had come from Italy to see several boarding schools, but most of the schools would not host them during the outage. With no available hotel rooms in the area—they were all full or out of power—we housed them for a night in our health center. Charlie, My sincere apologies for not writing sooner. I saw the power was finally restored and imagine all is back to routine. Thank you for taking in two “wayward travelers” victim of the unusually early snow storm. With all the pre-visit preparation I tried to offer our son before leaving Florence, I could have never envisioned the circumstances we faced. More important, the unparalleled warmth, hospitality, and gracious manner in which you, and everyone on your team, welcomed us offered a lasting impression of what our family could expect from a relationship with Suffield. Please pass along our heartfelt thanks to everybody. (A short anecdote: The morning I awoke in your health center and with a towel over my shoulder on my way to the bathroom, I ran into two campus maintenance/security men passing in the hall with flashlights. Laughing at the sight of me they immediately asked: “Can we get you some extra towels, shampoo, or other amenities?” My friends in five-star hospitality would be thrilled to have such an affable staff!) I noticed that you closed last spring’s Commencement address by saying, “We have opportunities to inspire others, care for others, and be kind to others. We should take them. Thank you for caring about our school and about each other, and please follow your instincts and your hearts in the years ahead.” On our first visit to Suffield, I can affirm that you practice what you preach and all those under your guidance will be better for the experience.

our ability to sustain a culture of optimistic, positive people flies in the face of the negativity bias.

This message—that we are more receptive to negative events than to positive events—has serious implications for an organization like Suffield that thrives by having happy people and a strong sense of community. In short, how do we sustain such a positive environment in the face of this bias? Why is it, in this place where the demands on students, faculty, and staff are numerous, that we have a community marked by optimism and shared purpose? Why is it that I keep receiving notes like this one?

We have positioned Suffield in a great spot in the independent school world—an academically rigorous school with an encouraging, supportive environment. With this in mind, my essential point is that our ability to sustain a culture of optimistic, positive people flies in the face of the negativity bias. It takes self-discipline and close attention. Here it starts with alumni and trustees, and moves from the headmaster to the faculty, and finally to the students. I see it all around our school each day, and it is one the biggest reasons for my deep affection and commitment to Suffield. Fall 2011 | 3

The Hoffman College Counseling Center

The 3,000 square foot Hoffman College Counseling Center opened this fall. The beautiful new facility will be home to six staff members and a bold, new, comprehensive four-year college counseling initiative. The center was made possible by several generous contributions from suffield parents and named in recognition of a lead gift from trustee Kathy Hoffman P’13 and her husband, Bradley. the space will help ensure that all suffield students have support with the college search process from the start of their experiences on campus. The overarching goal is to provide college counseling marked by individual attention and extensive programming. “We are thrilled to be in this great office,” says Director of College Counseling Ann Selvitelli, “This is a wonderful way to embark on our innovative new program.”

Alexander “Sandy” MacNabb ’46 class agent

By Thomas Foote

“Anything I tell you, it’ll start normal but then take a turn for the comic— that’s what keeps me going.” So said Alexander “Sandy” MacNabb ’46 at the start of our conversation, and he proved to be half right—there’s very little normal about his life, but I certainly laughed many times as we talked. How could I not when Sandy told me the story of how, well after the Cold War, he encountered two Russian diplomats at a serious affair in Washington, DC? The pair had learned Sandy spoke Russian but didn’t know how he had picked it up. When it came to light that Sandy had served in a Naval radio cryptology unit in the Pacific during the Korean War, one of the Russians played dumb. “But who were you listening to?” he asked. Sandy, 81 at the time, stood up, looked the man right in the eye, and growled, “Our enemies.” Amidst the laughs, Sandy’s found a way to live half a dozen lives. After being selected to the Torch Society and graduating from Suffield Academy at 16, he headed off to Colgate University. He left college a few credits short of graduation, though, taking a job as an detective in a New York district attorney’s office. Before he returned to Colgate in 1956 to finish his degree in political science—he also was close to completing majors in geology, languages, and pre-law—he found time to work as a journalist and archaeologist, spend 18 months in Sweden, and fulfill his four years of Naval service. After graduating from Washington and Lee Law School in 1959, Sandy first worked with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, serving as an institutional parole officer. When President Johnson began the Community Action Program, Sandy worked closely with Theodore Berry and other Civil Rights leaders to provide aid to the underserved. From there, he moved to the Office of Economic Opportunity, where he served under the tutelage of famed statesman Sargent Shriver. But it was Sandy’s work with America’s native people, particularly at the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), that saw perhaps his greatest impact. Sandy’s paternal grandmother was full-blooded Micmac, and a deathbed request from his father urged Sandy to do all he could to help American Indians. He certainly honored his father’s request, serving them for nearly half a century in a variety of jobs, including

class agent

Assistant Commissioner of Indian Affairs at the BIA and Director of Indian Programs for the Department of Labor. In 1979, before he left government service, he was recognized with the Labor Department’s Award for Distinguished Achievement in celebration of his efforts to strip away layers of bureaucracy to provide greater aid and self-determination for native peoples. Since leaving the BIA, Sandy has continued his life of service in a variety of ways. He worked on President Ronald Reagan’s incoming transition team in 1980. He has spent much of his time since then working in private practice for American Indian tribes in the Pacific Northwest, and in 1983 he served as legal counsel for the American Samoa Constitutional Convention. Just as Sandy has excelled in many career fields, he has enjoyed similarly wide-ranging success in lives he has touched. He praises politicians on both sides of the aisle, while also celebrating the days when civil servants heeded George Washington’s call toward moderation. A member of the National Republican Club of Capital Hill, Sandy counted the late Shriver, 1972 Democratic vice-presidential candidate, and six-time Socialist presidential candidate Norman Thomas as personal friends. He’s also a devout Catholic, and he and his wife Kathleen raised seven children, several of whom have followed Sandy into one of his many lines of work.

“But there are times when suddenly you realize you’re nearer the end than the beginning. And you wonder, you ask yourself, what the sum total of your life represents. What difference your being - Excerpt from Bridge on the River Kwai by Pierre Boulle there at any time made to anything.”

In the course of our conversation, Sandy quoted Russian proverbs and Spanish poetry, casually noted, “My Japanese is fair,” and mentioned that he picked up some Swedish and Samoan along the way. But when it came time to discuss the impact of Suffield, he turned to a great English writer. Citing Rudyard Kipling and crediting Reagan, who used the same quotation in his farewell address Sandy said, “‘We are at the opening verse of the opening page of the chapter of endless possibilities.’ That’s what Suffield meant to me... that one sentence, that says it.” Sandy’s life after Suffield bore out these possibilities. And while he says he doesn’t want to “look like a character out of Dickens,” he readily acknowledges, “My folks were working-class people,” and Suffield provided him with opportunities that he may not have had otherwise. As a Class Agent, Sandy led his class to 70 percent participation in the 2011 Annual Fund. While Suffield may not see another Sandy MacNabb, thanks to the hard work of Class Agents like Sandy and the generosity of many members of the Suffield community, the Academy will continue to provide students with such “endless possibilities.”

thank you alumni class agents

This year, 207 alumni have volunteered their time and effort to help Suffield Academy. These Class Agents come from 61 graduating classes spanning 1946 through 2011. Our Class Agents are full-time professionals, retirees, stay-at-home parents, and students, but they still find time to give back to our school. Class Agents play a vital role for Suffield Academy, contacting classmates to communicate school news, encouraging them to submit class notes, asking for Annual Fund support, and thanking them for their donations.

Grandparents’ Day The Suffield community welcomed grandparents from around the world as they shared a typical day in the lives of their grandchildren. It was a warm reminder of the sense of community we celebrate at Suffield Academy every day. Under the leadership of Arline and Harvey Steinberg GP ’09, the Grandparents’ Association has established the goal of endowing a $50,000 Distinguished Speaker Series Program to provide the means for guest speakers on a yearly basis. The purpose of this series will be to intellectually stimulate the student body and faculty in the areas of American history, civics, and the United States Constitution, with an emphasis on the responsibilities that come with citizenship. We hope many Suffield grandparents will participate in this project and thank all those who have already contributed.

eugenie mukeshimana Suffield Academy kicked off the 2011-12 speaker series with an address from Eugenie Mukeshimana. Eugenie is a native of Rwanda and a survivor of the 1994 genocide that wiped out approximately twenty percent of the small African nation. The chapel was part of the endowment established in memory of Dr. Barbara W. Cahn, Headmaster Charlie Cahn’s mother. The fund sponsors an annual speaker who focuses on the atrocities of genocide. Eugenie shared her vision of living in a world where individuals acknowledge the humanity and dignity of others through mutual understanding. She spoke of the importance of empowering victims of violence, and educating the world about horrific events like genocide in order to prevent them from happening in the future. Fortunate to survive the war, she immigrated to the United States in 2001. Since coming to the U.S., she has dedicated her life to helping other victims of genocide and increasing public awareness. In 2010, Eugenie established the Genocide Survivors Support Network to help genocide survivors rebuild their lives and to contribute to genocide prevention through education. The program, which has allowed survivors to share their stories with over 6,000 students nationwide, has also helped send many survivors to college and has assisted others in gaining access to services such as immigration, mental health care, career counseling, and health care.

mike robbins Mike Robbins captivated the Suffield Academy community with his motivational speech. Mike’s strong ability to connect with the students helped him effectively and directly address the community theme of gratitude. Mike, who was drafted by the New York Yankees out of high school, is now an expert in concepts related to teamwork, emotional intelligence, and the power and appreciation of gratitude. Instead of signing a major league contract, Mike chose to play baseball at Stanford University, where he ultimately pitched in the College World Series. He did pursue a baseball career with the Kansas City Royals organization, but an injury forced him out of the sport. After baseball, and working at two Internet start-ups, Mike discovered his true passion as a keynote speaker, seminar leader, professional coach, and personal growth expert. He works with a wide spectrum of people, including Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, sports organizations, and children. He is also the author of Focus on the Good Stuff: The Power of Appreciation and Being. Mike stressed it is important that people stop and focus on what they are grateful for in life. Too often, humans are unable to do this because they are too stressed out, waiting for things to work out “perfectly,” or feel embarrassed about expressing appreciation. He encouraged everyone to create gratitude practices and understand the power of gratitude. It can transform lives and relationships in healthy ways.

mawi asegdom Suffield Academy was thrilled to welcome guest speaker Mawi Asegdom, the author of the school’s community text, Of Beetles and Angels. Mawi was brought to campus in large part due to the efforts of English teacher Rebecca Strong, a floor mate of Mawi’s at Harvard University, who introduced Mawi to the community. At just three years of age, Mawi’s life was torn apart by civil war in Ethiopia. He traveled hundreds of miles in dangerous terrain to Sudan with his mother and two siblings to join his father in a refugee camp. Within a few years, his family arrived in Chicago, where Mawi ultimately overcame poverty, self-doubt, racial prejudice, and the unfortunate death of his brother. He ultimately graduated with honors from Harvard University. Mawi, as he says he starts every speech, told the audience about his “Sandwich Rule”: “If you see me at an airport a year from now and tell me you liked my speech, I’ll shake your hand. If you see me at the airport a year from now and tell me one specific thing you did to improve your life as a result of my speech, I’ll buy you a sandwich.” Mawi discussed experiences not included in his book. He gave the audience an in-depth look at more personal aspects of his life. Mawi said he cannot expect anyone to directly relate to his experiences as a refugee, but from his many life experiences we can learn about the importance of gratitude, and the attitude and approach we take in life. He encouraged the audience to keep an inspiration log, which can be revisited when we face challenging moments in life. For we must remain grateful, respect others, and take advantage of life’s opportunities.

An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A witch... who raps? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale, Into The Woods. When a baker and his wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell—swindling, lying to, and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of The Princess Bride becomes a moving lesson about community, responsibility, and the stories we tell our children. Suffield Academy’s production of Into The Woods was performed on December 8, 9 and 10 at the Seaverns Performing Arts Center. The cast and crew of over 30 students brought this amazing tale to life on stage. The vocal and staging complexity in this production challenged our students to reach new heights as performers. The Fall Performing Arts Season also included a Parents’ Weekend Extravaganza, some of which is pictured above.

Iconic Radio Personality Retires When Ralph Jennings ’57 arrived at Suffield Academy in 1955, he was already a unique character. “Suffield was good enough to let me pursue my interests,” says Jennings, a nowretired public radio station manager. Jennings developed an interest in radio when he was 13 and began volunteering at the local Torrington, Connecticut radio station.

“By the time I came to Suffield I was producing a monthly program for the Boy Scouts on WTOR in Torrington. Suffield was good enough to let me go home once a month to record the program, line up interviews, and the like,” says Jennings. He speaks fondly of his Suffield experience, and he credits its dedicated faculty for allowing him to do the things that were important to him. “Suffield was a great place for me. There were rules, rules, and more rules, but at the same time there were people who encouraged me,” Jennings recalls. He shares his memories of beloved Headmaster Ap Seaverns saying, “He was instrumental in helping me after my father died, and allowing me to come to Suffield. He was tough and no-nonsense, but that was what I needed at the time.” Bill Pendleton and Paul Sanderson were also influential in Jennings’ life and future career choices. “I remember talking to Sanderson all the time about Dartmouth and his work at the radio station there. So, among other things, that was what I looked for in a college.” After Suffield he went to the College of Wooster in Ohio “for the sheer potential of the radio station,” and his career path flourished. Jennings and several classmates made arrangements with a local FM station to create a program service that mirrored educational radio of the day. They broadcast jazz programs, discussions with faculty members, classical music, and programs with wide-ranging, intellectual topics, which was much more than other college stations of the times offered. After Wooster, Jennings went to New York and landed a job as an operations director at WRVR, a station that was heavily involved in covering the Civil Rights Movement. “I spent a lot of my time chasing after Civil Rights leaders with 40 pounds of recording equipment,” he says. Then he went on to graduate school at NYU, earning his PhD in 1968. All this was a springboard for Jennings to take a job with the Office of Communication of the United Church of Christ. The agency, led by The Rev. Dr. Everett C. Parker, became known for its groundbreaking work challenging the licenses of TV and radio stations that discriminated against minorities and women. Jennings eventually found his way to Fordham University for a 26-year stint as general manager of its radio station, WFUV. The non-commercial FM operation was ripe for re-shaping. He said it was struggling with old equipment and amateurish programming nobody wanted to hear. Jennings transformed it into what The New York Times describes as “radio with a brain in its head.” The Times goes on to describe what Jennings developed: “Free from commercial considerations, the station championed young talent: an unknown chanteuse named Norah Jones; performers like Susan Werner, James Maddock, and James Hunter; and groups like the Freelance Whales, Mumford & Sons, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Frightened Rabbit.” Jennings brought in professionals, and was successful in bringing WFUV-FM into the public radio system while providing training and work study jobs for dozens of students each year. “It was a place where you got to see change happen,” says Jennings. Jennings finds similarities between his experience at WFUV-FM and what was happening at Suffield Academy during his student days. “If Appleton Seaverns had not rallied the resources at his disposal Suffield might have closed its doors. He gave Suffield a new beginning.” Jennings sought to bring new life and purpose to WFUV during his years at Fordham. After 26 years leading WFUV, Jennings leaves with a singular hope, “When people join together with others, they can make a positive difference. I hope we have not lost our way and become too insular and self-serving. I hope people can embrace the good that comes from working together for a better world for us all.”

2011 Fall Parents’ Weekend

Fall Parents’ Weekend is typically a wonderful time for parents to meet with faculty members, check in on their children, and delight in the splendors of fall in New England. October 2011 was a Parents’ Weekend not to be forgotten when Winter Storm Alfred descended upon Suffield Academy on Saturday, forcing many to take refuge on campus, where they discovered what it truly means to be part of a community.


Over 200 alumni returned to campus for Suffield Academy’s 2011 Reunion. Despite the unexpected Nor’easter, alums had a great time! The campus lost power, but with the help of a few generators, the unsung heroes of dining services and maintenance made a spectacular evening possible. People were camping out in all areas of campus; sleeping bags were abundant, but everyone was warm, happy, well-fed, and having fun.

“The deeper I get into my Peace Corps service, the more I realize that each volunteer, whether in Kyrgyzstan or any other country, has a completely unique experience. The only thing that we all have in common is our employer.

Some volunteers are isolated with no electricity and no running water. Others live in eighth floor, downtown apartments with hot showers and high-speed internet access. Some volunteers live with their host families for two years; others move into their own place after three months. Some volunteers can wear T-shirts to work; others wear button down shirts and khakis every day. Some stay healthy; some get sick. The one thing you can bet on as a PCV is that your experience will be idiosyncratic and unduplicated.” -Steven Root ’06

Fall 2011 | 27

2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps. Officially established in March 1961 under President John F. Kennedy, the Peace Corps is a worldwide organization devoted to “world peace and friendship.” The idea of a governmental agency devoted to serving the poor of developing nations was the focus of a speech given by then-Senator Kennedy to a group of approximately 5,000 students at the University of Michigan in 1960. The future president issued a challenge: how many of them “would be willing to serve their country and the cause of peace by living and working in the developing world?” While Suffield Academy students obviously were not there to listen to this challenge, they have nevertheless always been schooled in a tradition of service. And while they could not directly heed President Kennedy’s challenge, they did heed the words of legendary Headmaster Appleton Seaverns and those who followed him. Headmaster Seaverns held firmly to a philosophy of service and instilled this belief in the Suffield community with the creation of the on-campus work program. Taking part in this program is a long-standing requirement for all Suffield Academy students. As stated in the school

handbook, “The program seeks to promote pride in the school, respect for other people and their efforts, a sense of responsibility and leadership, and a clean, attractive campus.” While students are no longer working side by side with the maintenance staff, they still have a great impact on the community. Service has also been formally incorporated into the curriculum in the form of sophomore leadership classes. These courses culminate in spring service projects that allow students to impact their community and world. Recent projects have included work in local schools, nursing homes, soup kitchens and a community garden, and a Haitian earthquake relief project. Although the work squad program is an ancient Suffield tradition, Suffield students first began to reach out en masse to the wider community to serve in the late 1960s, perhaps as a response to President Kennedy’s challenge. Then-student council president Jeffrey McElnea ’67 initiated a relationship between the Academy and Northern Educational Service (NES), a community support program in Springfield, Massachusetts. Suffield students travelled to Springfield several times a week tutoring underserved elementary school students; coaching baseball, soccer, and wrestling; and chaperoning children from the Riverview Housing Project on trips around the Springfield area. By its second year, the program had expanded to allow Suffield seniors to live in Springfield. According to an article by former faculty member Donald A. Bickford in the Winter 1968 Suffield Academy Record, when participants in the program “were asked if they would try to get involved in similar activities at their respective colleges, they all answered they would.” Even now, McElnea has positive words for the program. “Being able to participate in NES,” he says, “was one of my fondest memories of Suffield.” These concepts live on today at Suffield today and many Suffield students go on to serve larger communities through their experience with the Peace Corps.

person in the world.’” After crediting David Rockwell ’50 and others with driving that point home, Peter is impressed with the fact that Suffield still offers that same awareness to current students through the Leadership Program. He reminds us that “service to others, even temporarily, will make [us] better at anything [we] eventually do.”

Don Livingston ’62

Don Livingston ’62 served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala from 1967 to 1970. In what he called, “an incredibly positive experience,” Don worked at an agricultural cooperative, helped improve infrastructure, and taught about nutrition and animal husbandry. But Don’s work in Guatemala continued long after he returned home from his initial trip. He founded Computers for Hope, a non-profit organization with two major goals: to ship computers to schools, orphanages, and libraries, and to build a high school in memory of field director Rafael Randal Juarez. It is designed by Peace Corps volunteer and architect Jim Fanjoy. “It was important to me to build a high school,” Don says, “because of the positive experience I had at Suffield.” Don is also quick to look to Suffield for inspiring his life of dedication to others. At Suffield, service was “encouraged and recognized,” and the “whole community understood that ‘we had to help each other.’” Don particularly credits the on-campus work program for his desire to serve others after graduation. “After being on a ‘work squad,’ it was easy to segue into the Peace Corps,” he says. “I didn’t think twice about it.” What final thoughts does Don have for current Suffield students or fellow alums? On this point he is unequivocal: “23,000 children around the world die every day from preventable causes, often lack of proper nutrition or clean water. We can’t say that we don’t know about it, and we can’t say it’s not easy to do something about it. We are so privileged; it is unconscionable not to work for the greater good. We have an obligation—we have to give back. We have to find a way to give back.” Peter Kircher ’69 volunteered for the Peace Corps in the Sierra region of Ecuador from 1973 to 1975. He reached out to indigenous Quechua-speaking communities, helping to build bilingual schools so children could learn the Spanish of the economically-stronger parts of Ecuador. It was, though, “so much more than just building schools,” he says, and he recounts stories of supplying water and medicine, building roads, and, at the core, “serving as an ambassador for the United States.”

Steve Root ’06 agrees with his fellow alums. “I joined the Peace Corps for several reasons. The first and most important reason was to give back. I have led a blessed life, and I wanted to share my blessings with those less fortunate. I also wanted to learn about and adopt a new culture to gain new perspective on my own life. Finally, I was captivated by the ‘adventure’ appeal of the Peace Corps. Living on my own for two years in a foreign country while serving others was too great an opportunity for me to pass up.” Steve first became interested in formal travel during his sophomore year at Suffield. Greg Lynch, his chemistry teacher, would often regale students with stories of travels to faraway lands. Lynch is well-known among the Suffield community for his adventures around the globe, having arrived here after teaching in Pretoria, South Africa. Not only did Steve find inspiration and intrigue from his chemistry classes, he also found it in the newly formed Leadership Program. “The Leadership Program was fairly new when I was a student,” says Steve. “But one thing I did take away from it was the importance of service to others.” Steve has many fond memories of his time at Suffield Academy, but what impacted him most were the relationships he formed with others. He speaks fondly of strong bonds with students and faculty members alike, and he credits Suffield for his desire to form strong community ties wherever he goes. “SA provided me a unique opportunity to not only develop my own skills, but also to positively impact others.” Steve has had a great experience in the Peace Corps thus far, and he encourages Suffield students to get involved. “As you move through the remainder of your Suffield career and onto college, do as much volunteer work as you can. Anything will work: a two-hour soup kitchen or a three-week Habitat for Humanity project. Just get out there and volunteer. I also highly recommend studying abroad while you’re in college. My study abroad program (Semester at Sea) opened my eyes to the world and ignited my desire to live and learn abroad. If you’re determined to join and if you stay motivated, you could be heading overseas before you know it!”

Peter’s experience in the Peace Corps, in his words, “galvanized” him and “solidified values of conservation and care for the earth,” which had always been important to him. Finally, it helped show “it’s a really big world out there,” and, he says, not everyone is as fortunate as we are. Peter also carried the spirit of service with him after returning home. He earned a master’s degree in special education and has been working in the Austin Public School System. The Peace Corps ethos of service to others echoed what Peter experienced at Suffield. At a young age, he says “Suffield instilled the message: ‘You are not the only

For an up-to-the-minute look at Steve’s experiences, read the following excerpts from his blog: So yeah… two weeks until the next two years of my life “officially” begin. I will be living in a super-tiny village called “Toguz-Bulak,” which translates to “Nine Springs.” The population is only 600, and I will be working at a school with only 110 total students! My life in Kyrgyzstan is very different from my life in the U.S. Since moving in with my host family here I have been offered a Kyrgyz wife, showered once, thrown snowballs, milked a cow, eaten sheep’s brain, drunk fermented mare’s milk, and trekked the muddy Lenin Street to get to language class. I am adapting well (at least I’d like to think so), and look forward to each day as a chance to become better acclimated to my surroundings and to further my language proficiency. Transportation is pretty interesting here as well. Peace Corps policy states that volunteers are not allowed to ever operate a motor vehicle, so public transportation is our only viable option for transportation between our villages and the hub site. Kyrgyzstan uses vans-turned-buses called “marshrutkas” that are jam packed with far too many people, but only cost about 10 som each way (roughly 20 cents). Navigating the marshrutka definitely took some time to get used to, but once you get the hang of it, it’s not too bad. Some general rules of thumb: empty your pockets BEFORE getting on the marshrutka, or someone else will do it for you (pickpocketing is a big problem since they are so packed), always give up your seat for an elderly woman, and keep your loud American mouth shut. Nightlife is literally non-existent for me. We have a six-day week where our entire day is tightly structured from 8:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. At 5:00 P.M. each day we go home and interact with our families to practice our language, eat dinner, and help around the house. Sometimes we play games with our little brothers/sisters, other times we help make dinner, and sometimes we play soccer or Frisbee at the stadium. Because it is the Peace Corps’ 50th anniversary this year, Peace Corps/Kyrgyzstan is going crazy for the ceremony. We have been told that the President of the Kyrgyz Republic will be speaking, and the US Ambassador will be in attendance as well. To say that this makes me feel like a badass would be an understatement. You know by now that I love my host family as well. This makes my home life pleasant and enjoyable. I look forward to coming home from work each day and chatting with my family, and my Kyrgyz gets better every day because of these conversations. My experience in the Peace Corps so far has been incredible, and I owe it in large part to my location. With every passing day, I have a greater understanding of my good fortune, and I won’t take it for granted. [See more at] Steve Root ’06

Fall Athletics

Football The Suffield Academy football team captured its third New England title in four years, topping the Belmont Hill School 10-9 in the Tom Flaherty Bowl. The Tigers won in dramatic fashion, as Alton Sioussat ’13 kicked a game-winning 35 yard field goal with just 46 seconds remaining. This memorable and exciting game marked Suffield’s fourth straight Super Bowl appearance, a string that has seen the Tigers compile a record of 32 wins and 3 defeats. The Super Bowl game was a low scoring affair, and much of the first half was a battle of field position. Both teams had promising drives snuffed out by defensive stands. Ultimately, Belmont Hill struck first, scoring on an eleven yard touchdown pass late in the second quarter, and Suffield trailed 6-0 at the end of the first half. Suffield continued to move the ball both on the ground and through the air, but were unable to break through until the fourth quarter. Three minutes in, senior captain Paul McCarthy found Brice McAllister ’14 for a nine yard touchdown catch, and the Tigers took a 7-6 lead when Alton Sioussat booted the extra point. Belmont Hill answered, however, as a 26 yard field goal put them on top 9-7 with 6:36 left in the game. McCarthy and the Tiger offense quickly went back to work and put together an unforgettable come-from-behind drive. After 10 plays, which included a big 23 yard run from senior captain Trevon Offley, the Tigers reached the Belmont Hill 16 yard line with under a minute to go. After a timeout, Suffield called on Alton Sioussat to convert a career-long field goal, and the junior drilled the kick into the wind and through the uprights. One defensive stand later, the celebration ensued. This year’s team was captained by McCarthy, Offley, Russ Grotto ’12, and Paul Metscher ’13. The talented senior class also included Will Draper, JC Murtaugh, Shaquille Phillips-Breedlove, Chris Sonberg, Connor Kaplan, and Conrad Mish. Juniors who made key contributions included Steven Leo, Harry Farr, Cole Hills, and Alton Sioussat. A very talented sophomore class was led by McAllister, CJ Moore, Jaylen Berry, Drew Mahoney, Tyler Pinkham, Derek Chaney, Jimmy Quinn, and Matt Powers. Christian Wilkins ’15 and Trenton Bellows ’15 also played significant roles, along with fellow freshmen Tahj Herring, Jackie Zhang, and Greg Pentz. They help provide a promising future for Suffield football. Head Coach Drew Gamere ’93 said, “This group really maximized their potential and got better every day and in each game. They were a pleasure for us to coach and we are all proud of their achievements. Our success is exciting for the school, and for all of these students and their families.” 32 |

Boys’ Soccer The boys’ soccer team had a tremendous season as they reached the postseason for the first time since 2005. They finished with a 9-5 record and terrific victories over teams including Deerfield, Choate, Loomis, and Westminster. The Tigers made a statement from the very beginning of the season, winning their first four games and outscoring their opponents 15-3. After dropping three consecutive games, Suffield came right back by ripping off another four game win streak. It was the Tigers stellar defense that was the recipe for success. During this four game stretch they allowed just one goal, as Jess Phillips ’15 and Harrison Philipps ’12 emerged as a successful tandem splitting time behind goal. The Tigers ultimately drew the number six seed in the NEPSAC Class B Quarterfinal. The Tigers dropped a hard fought match against the third seeded Brooks School in a game where the Tigers truly left everything they had on the field. Leading the attack for the Tigers were captains Reed Barbe ’12 and Jordan Glassman ’13, who were both named to the Western New England Prep School Soccer Association (WNEPSSA) All-Star Team. Juniors Chris McCormick and Jack Patterson were both named to the NEPSSA Junior All-Star Team. In addition to the loss of Barbe and Philipps, the Tigers will miss the leadership provided by fellow seniors Matt Gollust, Kota Hotta, Andy MacPherson, Mike Murphy, Fredrik Randmael, Joseph Teed, and captains Patrick O’Brien, Brien Hard, and Sinclair Welch.

Girls’ Soccer The girls’ soccer team was led by a core of five seniors and a strong group of newcomers. The familiar senior faces of Shenna Bannish, Taylor Grand Pre, Alexis Page, Brittany Rodriguez, and Briell Smith helped led the Tigers all year long. Bannish, a consistent scoring threat, and Smith, a rock in the goal, were both named to Western New England Prep School Soccer Association All-Star team. Despite the impending graduation for this group, the future for the girls’ soccer team looks bright as freshmen Becca Titterton and Abby Blyler stepped up in a big way playing both forward and midfield.

Boys’ Cross-Country With an 11-1 record in 2010, the boys’ cross country team entered rebuilding mode after graduating several key runners. Finishing with 3 wins and 8 losses, the Tigers had a number of new additions step up in a big way. Freshman Kaison Ifill led the team all season and at the NEPSAC Division II Cross Country Championships, finishing 14th overall with a time of 17:32. His top-20 performance earned him All New-England Honors. Will Sartorius ’12 was also a key runner all year for the Tigers and finished in 68th place overall at the Championships. The Tigers will miss Sartorius next year, as well as fellow seniors Frank Bolella, Billy Degen, Dylan Downes, and Marco Li.

Girls’ Cross-Country The girls’ cross country team had a stellar season that culminated in a 9-3 record and a third place finish at the NEPSAC Division II Cross Country Championships. With a top seven comprised entirely of underclassmen, the Tigers are primed to improve on this third place finish next year. In the championship race, the Tigers trailed second place Winsor School by just two points. Consistent leaders Anna Strzempko ’13 and Haley Leishman ’14 ran personal records in this race and came in 13th and 18th place, respectively. Both girls earned All New-England honors, and Emily Lowe ’15 missed the honor by just one place as she came in 21st overall. Filippa Brandolini ’13 shattered her personal best and followed only seconds behind teammate Amanda Leonard ’14. Kiley Caravella ’13 and Sara Berchuck ’13 rounded out the top seven for the Tigers. Suffield will graduate seniors Eleanor Kelly and Molly Stromoski, but have their eye on a New England Championship next season.

Field Hockey

After graduating several key seniors, the Tigers entered the 2011 season in a rebuilding mode. Highlights for the field hockey team included consecutive wins over Wilbraham & Monson Academy (5-0) and Hamden Hall (4-2). Offensively, the Tigers were led by a core group of seniors that included Kim Nault, Lucy Sheresky, Brenna Turer, Emily Doran, and Carly Smith. Doran and goalie Jackie Nicoletti ’14 were both named to the Western New England Prep School Field Hockey Association All-Star Team. Other seniors finishing their Suffield field hockey careers included Annie Pitkin, Emily Mandirola, Lexi Hildreth, Alyssa Fruce, and Lauren Booth.

Volleyball With an 8-5 record, the girls’ volleyball team had a strong season despite narrowly missing out in postseason play. After a slow 1-3 start, the Tigers streaked to four consecutive victories over Worcester Academy, Ethel Walker School, Wilbraham & Monson, and Miss Porter’s School. The Tigers then dropped two games but bounced right back to end the season on a high note by winning the last three contests. A 3-1 win over Kingswood-Oxford avenged a loss earlier in the season. Senior captains Pixie Clauson and Emma Cohen, as well as senior Kara Goings, provided invaluable skill and leadership for the Tigers. Junior captain Angelina Massoia was also instrumental in the Tigers success and looks to be the team leader next year. The other senior members of the team included Joanna Borg and Isabel McDonald.

Boys’ Water Polo The varsity boys’ water polo team reached the New England Prep League Tournament’s “Liquid Four” for the fourth straight year in 2011. The Tigers drew Loomis Chaffee for a play-in game, and came away with an exciting 9-7 victory and a number three seed in the final four. Unfortunately, the Tigers came up short in their quest for a championship and finished in fourth place after a loss to Choate and an overtime defeat at the hands of Phillips Exeter. Josh Galant ’12 led the team in scoring in the two games with five goals and Sam Prout ’13 (four goals), Geoff Lowe ’13 (three goals) and Austin Cunningham ’13 (two goals) supplied the rest of the offense. Goalkeeper Seth Magoon ’13 was named Liquid Four Most Outstanding Goalie, and Prout was named to the all-tournament team. Magoon, Prout, and Galant were each named to the All New-England Team, based on their strong play in both the regular season and in the tournament. Although the Tigers will miss the leadership of the senior class, the strong underclass core has the Tigers in position to be in the mix for a championship once again next year. In addition to Galant, seniors on the team included Dominic Fiallo, Michael Lombardo, Remington Lyman, Alex Porter, and Billy Regan.

An Uncommon Bond

They sat across from each other in the same office for years. It was no surprise that they would develop a bond. At the time, there were no machines or computers rising up from their work space. Just two colleagues connected by common interests, shared pursuits, and close quarters. They found themselves together several times a day—checking in, sharing the day’s events, teaching each other about teaching. They were co-workers at first, colleagues second, and then friends forever. So began the relationship between former Suffield Academy Language department faculty members Trina D’Angelo P’94, ’99 and Elaine Mitchell P’94. It was a relationship that changed each of their lives. In the age of Facebook friends, it is both rare and uplifting to hear of true and lasting friendship. “I sat across from Elaine for 12 years, and she truly is a wonderful person,” says D’Angelo. “I felt that when she needed help, I couldn’t say no.” Helping a friend in need is admirable, but how does a person measure that help when it requires risking the health of a loved one? It was after Elaine retired from Suffield Academy that she received the dreaded news she had feared for years—Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) was slowly causing her kidneys to fail. She had already lost a parent and a sibling to the disease, and she knew she carried the gene. It was just a matter of time for Elaine Mitchell. After years of struggling with dialysis, she needed a new kidney. Family and friends lined up offering to help, but no one was a match. Having been on the transplant list for some time, she was fortunate to hear that a kidney was available. “You have no idea how difficult it is to find a donor,” says Elaine’s husband Tom. Elaine concurred, saying simply, “People offer, but it is very common for people to back out because of all they have to endure when donating a kidney.” The first kidney transplant failed. After weeks of struggling with a low-grade fever after the operation, Elaine was rushed to the hospital only to find out that the transplant had failed and that she had to go back on dialysis. She recalls, “It just didn’t feel right from the beginning, but you have to remain hopeful.” Her husband Tom felt like it was “being on a rollercoaster—good news then horrible news.” Just when things seemed to be at their darkest, Elaine’s friends came to the rescue—more specifically, her old friend Trina and her new husband Rick Treston. A little background information. Rick and Trina were college sweethearts who had gone their separate ways years earlier. Trina often wondered what had happened to Rick, and one day she set out to find him. Elaine lived through her friend’s experience as Trina searched and eventually found him living in Washington state. “I knew he was the one, and I sent him a note,” said Trina. Rick’s response to the note was simple: “What took you so long to find me?” It was meant to be. Trina and Rick quickly built their lives together, and Elaine remembered the joy she felt for her friend as she began her new life out West. Rick and Trina had years of catching up to do, but one person from her past stood out in Trina’s present life. That person was Elaine Mitchell. Serendipity struck, and three lives would be changed forever. Somehow, through a wonderful twist of fate, Rick was not only a perfect match for Trina but also a perfect match for Elaine. It was Rick who generously offered to donate his kidney. It was Rick who ultimately saved the life of his wife’s dear friend. When Rick shared his reasons for this selfless act, he humbly said, “I don’t feel like I deserve all that much credit.” Rick recalls reading an article in Time magazine about people who donate their kidneys to strangers, and he remembers saying to himself that if someone he knew needed a kidney, he would donate. “A person likes to think he lives by his principles,” Rick says. And so he does. It has been almost a year now since Rick donated his kidney to Elaine. She is doing well and is busy traveling and spending time with her children. She and Tom recently stopped to see Rick and Trina on their way to Alaska. “Elaine and I aren’t friends,” says Rick. “She is Trina’s friend, but it is really pretty special when we see each other.” Elaine feels the bond as well and remarked, “He helped someone stay alive. That is a pretty spectacular thing.” Elaine shares her secret to happiness. “Time is precious. Enjoy yourself. Live your life, and treasure your family and friends. It’s a good life, and I am grateful.”

LouisHeilbronn ’06 Louis Heilbronn ’06 became interested in photography during his sophomore year at Suffield. As his passion for the medium intensified, it soon became part of Louis’ identity. Louis continued his study of photography at Bard College, graduating in 2010. He recently spent nine months in Israel, assisting and working with a group of established art photographers. He will soon pursue similar work in Berlin. These images are part of a project completed at Bard. It began with death and beauty. Louis was photographing the landscape and found himself drawn to images filled with a dual nature—visual beauty and emotional anxiety. He soon abandoned traditional ways of binding images and moved toward pictures with a particular spectrum of emotions. His goal was to express these overlapping emotional tensions in his connections with people, objects, and settings. He was using photography as a way to map the world visually, and to push the subject beyond its literal boundaries.

Luke has been on assignment for The Denver Post and Field & Stream, and has photographed the product line Geopalz, a children’s pedometer company. Luke became interested in photography at Suffield during a spring break trip with classmates to Italy and Greece. He went on to major in communications photography at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. He began studying photojournalism but later switched to illustrative photography. Luke frequently heads into the Rocky Mountains to enjoy the outdoors, and he has been promoting his photo business around Denver. He hopes to continue to shoot hunting and product photography, as well as high-end portraiture and fashion editorials.

war or

peace? Jeff Dressler ’02 Analyst at the Institute for the Study of War

You’ve heard the story before. A driven world-beater arrives at Suffield. His natural aptitude is matched only by his impressive work ethic and his love for all things black and orange. He gets A’s in all of his classes, excels on the athletic fields, and throws himself into extracurricular activities. Upon leaving Suffield Academy, inspired by his teachers and experiences on the Hill, he graduates from college with honors and quickly establishes himself as one of the brightest young minds in his chosen field. But Jeff Dressler ’02 was not that student. And this is not that story. Sure, parts of it resemble that story. Jeff Dressler ’02 really did graduate from college with honors. And at the age of 26, he really is an analyst at the Institute for the Study of War, a leading DC think tank, and is already widely recognized by the military and civilian communities as an expert on Afghanistan. And, he insists, much of the credit for his accomplishments is due to his alma mater. But his time at Suffield does not exactly match his subsequent achievements. “It must be jarring to my classmates,” he says, “to see me on television or to hear about the success I’m having.” At Suffield, Jeff was a self-described ‘average student.’ “I’d be the first person to admit,” he says, “I didn’t apply myself as much as I could have.” Similarly, he generally declined to participate in the clubs and activities Suffield offered. A talented golfer, Jeff even decided not to play his senior year, choosing instead to relax with friends. Looking back on his days at Suffield, Jeff expresses regrets at failing to take advantage of his surroundings. “I wish I had done more,” he says, “but at that age, it’s easy to find things to complain about. It was easier to say ‘I’m not interested; my friends aren’t doing that.’” Not taking advantage of the SOLO program, and not playing golf his senior year, are the two missed chances that stand out, but Jeff characterized much of his Suffield experience as a series of missed opportunities. After graduating from Suffield, Jeff went to Boston University, but he still felt like he “didn’t know what to do with himself.” He took a leave of absence from school, and returned to his hometown of Windsor, Connecticut. Hoping to

figure out a little more about himself and what he wanted to do, Jeff worked at a daycare center for a year and a half. This, he says, was one of the formative experiences of his life. Working at the daycare “allowed me to get back in touch with myself. I could fully appreciate the opportunities education offered—what it meant and why it was valuable.” Re-enrolling in school, Jeff began to study political science at the University of Connecticut. Fascinated by relationships between nations, particularly in Southeastern Asia, Jeff threw himself into his studies like he never had before. The hard work paid off, as he graduated summa cum laude, was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, and secured an internship at the Institute for the Study of War in Washington, DC. This quickly led to a full-time job, and Jeff’s rise since has been meteoric. Jeff has traveled to Afghanistan three times, once to do research for General David Petraeus, Commander of the U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. He has been tapped to brief military personnel, including U.S. Special Forces, before their deployment, and Jeff’s insights have been extremely valuable to the American war effort. On television and in other media, including The Atlantic, his expertise is regularly called upon. He has a gift for putting recent events in layman’s terms and predicting the effects of changing policies. Jeff is passionate about his work while being composed about the accolades it has brought him. “It’s funny how the chips have fallen,” he says. “DC is a city where if you work hard, you’ll have opportunities to succeed.” This job has “really been phenomenal,” Jeff reports, and he’s been particularly invigorated by his interactions with Hill staffers, senior policy analysts, and congressmen. “College is where I started to excel, but the foundation for all I’ve done was laid at Suffield,” he says. “When I step back, I can see that the school did a lot for me, and I didn’t fully appreciate it until I was out.” He does, however, have fond memories of classes with Beth Krasemann and Gordy Glover, and he reports—though we all know it already—that Hat Thomsen “was always great.” From the pews at chapel, Jeff says, he used to watch speakers “trying to impart their wisdom to us.” He heard their words, but at the time, didn’t take the lessons to heart. These days, he often thinks, “If I had a chance to speak at chapel, what would I say? What would I try to communicate?” Here’s one message he wants to share: “Take advantage of everything Suffield has to give—rarely in your life will you be in a community that is so nurturing, one that has so much to offer.”

alums in Bob McFadden ’65 U.S. Mid amater title 9.22.11

A former respected caddy on the Champions Tour, Bob was part of history when he helped Randal Lewis earn a U.S. Mid Amateur title on September 22, 2011. At age 54, Lewis was considered a long shot in the tournament, and he was not helped by the fact that his assigned caddie did not show for the practice rounds. A blessing in disguise, this allowed Lewis to land the veteran McFadden, who already spent 13 years on the Champions Tour with Tom Jenkins. Together, McFadden and Jenkins had a very successful run that netted Jenkins over $13 million dollars in winnings. After having very limited success on the PGA Tour, it was McFadden who constantly urged Jenkins to give a run on the Champions Tour when qualified by turning fifty years of age. He finally succumbed to the pressure, agreeing to give it a shot only if McFadden were to caddy. The rest is history, and after splitting up with Jenkins in 2011, it was Lewis’ good fortune that McFadden was available to caddy. Despite being consistently out driven off the tee, Lewis was phenomenal with his long iron and short game thanks to the input and expertise from McFadden. McFadden not only provided invaluable experience as a caddy, but also was very familiar with the course. Playing consistent golf for six rounds, Lewis ultimately earned the championship, the oldest player to do so in the 31-ytear history of the event. According to the Houston Chronicle, Lewis was very appreciative of McFadden. “He’s been in big situations before,” Lewis said of McFadden. “He knows what it’s like under the gun. He was exceptional. I have to tell you, if he wasn’t on the bag, I’m not sure I would be here right now.” The most exciting part of the championship is that it qualified Lewis to play in the 2012 Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia in April. Lewis is considering having Bob on the bag for this once in a lifetime experience, and he would be wise to do so if he wants a chance to shock the field once again.

Michelle Motta Stewart ’89 USTA League 3.5 National Championship team member

Michelle, a 4-year boarder at Suffield who played both tennis and field hockey, was part of a USTA League 3.5 National Championship team. The Thoreau Club’s women’s tennis team, based out of the Concord, Massachusetts area, began their journey by winning districts this past August. As the number one singles player for the team, Michelle helped the squad win the New England sections in Springfield, Massachusetts, which earned them a trip to the national championships in Tucson, Arizona. After defeating teams from Utah, Virginia, and Arizona, they earned a trip to the finals against a team from Southern California. Playing a three and a half hour match in record heat, the team ultimately came away victorious. Captain of the tennis team her senior year, Michelle didn’t play tennis in college but took up the sport after the birth of her second daughter in 2005. She started to play competitively in leagues in and around the Boston area and eventually developed such a passion for the sport that she started a tennis-based business, Tennis Pro Shops, Inc. “We sell rackets, equipment, clothing, shoes, and apparel. It’s still new, only about two years old, but it is great to do something I enjoy, and to parlay that into success,” says Stewart.

greg hearn ’06 founder of Drink & Hunt

Looking for a fun event for you and your friends but tired of the same old pub crawls through Faneuil Hall, expensive party buses, and identical nightly bar trivia everywhere you go? Drink & Hunt, a barbased scavenger hunt, is the event for you. The concept is the brainchild of co-founder Greg Hearn ’01. It started with events leading up to his 2010 graudation from Babson College. Greg and two classmates then turned the “scavenger hunt/bar crawl” into a business, now called Drink & Hunt. Greg and two classmates spent several months working nonstop on the interface and hanging out in bars ­—a “tough gig,” Greg says, jokingly—talking to managers and learning about the other side of the business. As Drink & Hunt continues to grow, Greg and his friends are pushing the concept of merging real-world social events, mobile, and gaming into something they call “real-life social gaming,” which they hope to expand to other events.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, one of the most influential figures in the American fashion industry, became the founding Fashion Director at Lincoln Center in November 2009, overseeing the relocation of New York City’s biannual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week from Bryant Park to Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park. Additionally, she supervises every aspect of Lincoln Center-based Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week events, is coordinating an ambitious year-round initiative of fashion-related programming at Lincoln Center, and works closely with the Mayor’s Special Projects and Community Events office facilitating city-wide initiatives. Stephanie, also a consultant to IMG Fashion, connects the various constituencies that come together to organize Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as well as consulting on and helping to create solutions supporting IMG Fashion’s overarching mission to facilitate a gateway to the fashion world—from creation to consumer. For over a decade, Stephanie served as Director of Special Events at Vogue, working closely with and being mentored by Editorin-Chief Anna Wintour in overseeing and producing major events for Vogue including the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit. Stephanie is involved in several charitable and community causes, including the Food Allergy Initiative, Baby Buggy, New Yorkers for Children, and the Central Park Conservancy.

Legacy Family

The Teeds

Mark ’75 Reagan ’08 Joe ’12

Why Suffield? Did you ever think of going somewhere else? Mark Public schools were doing double sessions due to the baby boom explosion and my parents wanted me to have a better education. An uncle went to Loomis so I interviewed at SA, Loomis, and East Catholic HS. I hated the idea of leaving my friends, but my parents were not listening. I chose SA because I liked the campus better than Loomis. Reagan I came to Suffield during my sophomore year of high school, so it was either Suffield or continue at public school. My father guided my path to Suffield. I respect him and everything he’s achieved since leaving Suffield, and for him to even suggest that I apply meant a lot to me. Joe Suffield was always my first choice. Thinking back, I would always be on campus because my dad ’75 and my sister, Reagan ’08 both attended Suffield. Being on campus was a daily exercise because I would go and watch my dad try to keep up with the young high school kids at the annual alumni games, or watch my sister’s sports games. The school feels like home, and it has been great to be welcomed and accepted so easily into a new community. Everyone here is so kind and helpful that it was an easy transition coming from a public school. I applied to other schools just to have several options, but the feeling of being home, the students, and the faculty kept the legacy in order.

What is the best part of the SA experience? Mark Initially I liked the idea of long vacations because I was lazy! The best part of the SA experience for me was the depth of the relationships formed with teachers and fellow classmates. I am still amazed 35 years later how strong the bonds remain and how often I speak with classmates or catch up on old news or reminisce about old stories. I rebelled against working hard and trying to get good grades, but in the process of spending three years at SA I developed a love of reading and a curiosity about how things work. I credit my Suffield experience with fostering this curiosity.

Westminster on their home court opening night of their gym in front of a sellout crowd; trying to buy platform shoes that were higher than Tyrone Miller’s shoes. Reagan Senior year in general was my most memorable experience. By the start of senior year, I knew that I had made the right choice in leaving public school. Every day that I had been at Suffield was exciting and unpredictable; I didn’t want my last year to end. Joe The most memorable experience at Suffield Academy is playing on the soccer team and making it to the playoffs. It was good to come in as a PG and be welcomed into such a great group of guys that all wanted to win. Although the team did not win it all this year, we shared great stories and many experiences.

Did your father ever share with you any great stories about Suffield? Reagan He always told me how happy he and his friends were when the first group of female students came to Suffield. That, and how he won the ‘Best Looking Student’ award. It seems like he had a great time during his four years. Joe I have heard many stories from my dad, however when he went to school, times were much different so many of the stories could not apply today. I hear mainly stories about his sports, especially basketball and baseball. Its great to hear about how great of a player he was and how much of a leader he was, but my favorite stories are when he talks about him winning “best looking” in his senior year. Whenever I come home, I look forward to hearing my dad’s “new” stories that he forgot to tell me last time I saw him.

What is your favorite place on campus? Mark The old trophy room in Perry Gymnasium, any room in which Mr. Gooch was teaching poetry, and The Dog House in Suffield Village.

Reagan The sense of community was definitely the best part. I am in my last year at a small liberal arts college and I thought that the same sense of community would exist, and it does, but it’s nothing like at Suffield: the sit-down lunches, interactions with teachers, strong athletics, and long-lasting friendships all tied together to create a really unique experience for me.

Reagan I loved sitting on Bell Hill when the sun was setting.

Joe From my first few months at Suffield many great things have happened. Sports, movies in Fuller, getting beat in ping pong, or just lounging around and talking with friends. However I would have to say the best part of my Suffield experience has been all the friends I have made. They are all such true and genuine friends and it is a pleasure to be around them.

Who has been the most influential faculty member?

What was/is your most memorable experience at Suffield? Mark Welcoming girls on the campus in the Fall of 1974! Taking Mr. Nye’s Film class in Tisch and having one of those “aha” moments when I could “see” what Mr. Nye was seeing in the symbolism of “Play it as it Lays”; listening to Coach Kinne break down another team’s weaknesses before a game and Coach telling me to visit a tonsorial artist once in awhile; beating 46 |

Joe At this point, I would have to say my favorite place on campus would have to be the union. I love to be able to just relax and hang out with friends, and the union is all that and more. There is music, Ping-Pong, and most importantly football games.

Mark Mr Kinne, Mr. Pervear, Mr Samaii, Mr Rockwell, and Mr Gooch. The most influential member of the faculty that helped me acclimate to SA was JR Fuller whom I loved as a coach and I thought was the “coolest” guy. Reagan Ms. Nahmens helped influence my love of Spanish. Her classes were fun and interesting, and to this day, I remember all the lyrics of several Shakira songs.  Joe My most influential faculty member is Mr. Brissette. Not only will he be my baseball coach, but I also want a similar career as he has had. This coming spring and winter semester Mr. Brissette will also be my 20th Century War teacher, a class I am really looking forward to taking.

The snow made the reunion one of the most memorable experiences in my life. I wanted to say what Suffield had meant to me—why I attended and why, even though I was able to attend for just one year, why I still care. It was the most meaningful school year I have experienced. I was disappointed no one else from my class attended. You all do a great job in planning, organization, and promotion, and you are to be commended for it. Loyalty has always been a priority with me, and I was glad to see that Suffield’s Leadership program promoted that theme this past year. I appreciated Phil Riegel showing me around in the golf cart. The pool was a sight to behold. I was happy to see my name on the George Abbey Butler Trophy in the gym building. That was a proud moment in my life. Young people who have an opportunity to get an education today at Suffield are very fortunate. I hope that they appreciate the sacrifices their parents make to give them this education. The report from the Headmaster was most optimistic. As a recommendation, I would like to have seen a Leadership class in action or to have learned more about this outstanding program which sets Suffield apart.

We encountered a problem when we returned to Florida in that I was hospitalized for five days with what was called a gall bladder attack.

Great 50th Reunion! Thanks to everyone who worked so hard. Who knew we would get 6” of snow. We drove home to 12” plus.

Thanksgiving 2011 will be a full house for the Macartneys! All five children and spouses, all six grandchildren, and my mother-in-law are coming for the holiday and my 70th birthday celebration. How did it get to be 50 years from a Suffield graduation?

‘Twas almost the 50th Reunion that wasn’t! The town lost power big time, but the Academy had its own backup generators! The class photographs were moved to Brewster Hall where we had a fine reception in the foyer while pictures were taken in the faculty lounge (about 15 of us). After the reception, there was a sit down three-course meal with wine at the tables and a wonderful dinner. The headmaster gave an opening presentation, and I learned a few things, e.g., Suffield was part of MA until sometime in the mid 40’s. He gave an overview of the history from 1833 to a group of about 200 folks after the presentation and dinner with a few awards and recognition. Both George Pervear and Mr. Gooch were present. The latter with some kind of tank or breathing apparatus, but it did not keep him from helping direct the COGS—a group of alumni that were spread through the ages and had only 45 minutes of practice earlier in the day. They sang the school song. Do you remember the tune and the words? You should see the physical plant. It is quite amazing, especially the facilities for music, art, photography, pottery, and wood shops. Classes still average 11students, and the students we spoke to were very mature and enthusiastic about the school. I thought one freshman girl’s response was classic. I asked what she liked most and least about the school. The dress code was the least. It seems skirts have to be long and pants to the ankle and, oh yes, no back pockets on the jeans. When I asked what pockets had to do with anything, she answered, “I guess it’s to keep the boys hands out of them!” The school had arranged for buses to pick people up at their hotels to come to the reception so that folks would not have to worry about parking or driving after drinking. As things turned out, when we left the comfort of the school, we entered a cold, windy, snowy, black night. They had arranged for 4-wheel drive SUVs to drive us to the hotel. In our case, it was the Marriott Hotel, just three years old and across from Bradley Field. The hotel had no power at all, not even emergency lighting. The room card/keys did not work, and we had to be let in by maintenance. The bathroom water worked-no hot water of course. No lights and no heat. We left in the morning and were told that it might be seven days before they get their power back!! The next morning we went to Sunday brunch back at the school, and it was the best deal in town by far, and the only place with electricity and great food. Of course, gas stations for miles around were also out of business so gas was a concern for those running low. The tree damage was horrendous everywhere you looked. On top of that, wires were down everywhere, and the snow must have gotten to 20” overnight; although the bright sun on Sunday really helped a lot and many of the roads were down to bare pavement as we left for home. What was the best part? Obviously, it was catching up on the lives of classmates and seeing how life treated them. It was easy to see 50 years melt away as we traded stories and compared notes. We might have done it anywhere, but doing it on campus really brought those memories alive. Quite a memorable reunion!

This thing called “retirement” is anything but dull—chairing a non-profit (Family Re-Entry) dealing with the recidivism issue in CT, board member of World Affairs Forum, vestry member of our church (plus three church committees), two elected positions in Greenwich, CT, town government—member of the Wetlands agency and member of the Representative Town Meeting (plus three other appointed positions). All these involvements, plus five children and now up to seven grandchildren (and counting), and struggling to keep my handicap in single figures, required my wife Ellen and me to travel to Chile and Argentina, the south of France, Martha’s Vineyard, and northern Maine in the last six months. I’m happy to see Suffield Academy continuing to flourish and produce outstanding young people under Charlie’s leadership of an amazingly committed faculty.

Gil Lavoie

We will be expecting our ninth grandchild next year, and the oldest is four-and-a-half years old. What a joy. I continue to work in the prevention of HIV. I just came from giving a presentation to the Black Caucus Health Workers in Washington, DC, last week. I also continue to do research on the Shroud of Turin. God has blessed us, and we have much to be thankful for.

Bill Macartney

I completed a rim-to-rim hike of the Grand Canyon in October in one day. The 21-mile hike consisted of a descent of 5,500 feet from the north rim, beginning in the dark, and a 4,500 foot climb out just in time to see a beautiful sunset across the canyon. The hike was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life—filled with breathtaking views of the canyon beyond description.

I am retired and loving it after 35 years in the wine business.

Our 50th illustrated a “time warp” to reignite friendships and personalities that had diversified and matured over five decades (yet in many ways had not truly changed—you cannot alter a John Tinker!). Fast forward into an environment of elevated experience, the massive infrastructure improvements; the Leadership program; the outdoor program; the computer learning program, and perhaps, most importantly, witnessing a campus full of excited, diversified, and happy individuals. In a relatively short time frame, I learned a great deal about what 18 classmates had made out of their lives, and each was a fascinating short story unto itself. In turn, the effort put forward by Suffield personnel spoke for itself, as alumni comments were, to the man, so positive. I reflected most frequently on the following: if only we had the coed environment; the quality of the food; the field house, etc. But, then again, our tuition was (we thought) only 5% of what it is today. My thanks to each of you for unmatched hospitality and the ability to rise above two feet of unexpected snow. I believe everyone’s exit story will provide a good beginning for our 60th! With best wishes, keep up the splendid work.

Dave Holdridge

I am mentioned in Congressman Wolf’s new book Prisoner of Conscience in the acknowledgements section-see the following: “I WANT TO EXPRESS MY THANKS to Anne Morse for her gifted way with words, making these chapters come to life in a way I never could. I also appreciate the great amount of time she spent interviewing people for the book and doing research. A person who urged me to write this book and recommended Anne to me is Chuck Colson, who is a friend and has given me wise counsel many times over the years. Many people generously arranged time for interviews, sent information by email and some read the relevant chapters, commented on them, and corrected any errors. I want to express my gratitude to my longtime friends, colleagues, and sometime traveling companions, Congressman Chris Smith and former Congressman and Ambassador Tony Hall. Thanks also go to Senator Dan Coats, Fred Van Gorkum, Ion Mihai (Mike) Pacepa, Dana Damaceanu Bart, Richard Stephenson, Mikhail Kasakov, Alexandr Goldovich, Vladimir Potashov, the late Daja Meston, Mary Beth Markey, Dick Foth, Steve Saint, Blaine Harden, Roger Winter, Dr. Elizabeth Morgan, David Holdridge, Bob Fu, Harry Wu, and three lifelong friends—Bill and Buddy Pepe and John Federico. I also want to recognize Renee and Bill Brohard, who put my photos in a usable format, the folks at Zondervan for their editing and design work, and my agent from Alive Communications, Joel Kneedler. Assisting Anne in transcribing conversations and interviews were Martha Anderson and Travis Morse. My wife, Carolyn, discussed every chapter with me, helped jog my memory for details, and spent hours on the computer communicating my thoughts, text changes, and corrections to Anne. Carolyn has been my helpmate and encourager for fifty years.”

It is now over two months since a stem cell transplant at Dana Farber for a cancer of the central nervous system. A full recovery is expected, but it has been a long hard year. Sam ’96 is getting married next June 16th. He lives in Brooklyn and is wrapping up a master’s degree at Hunter College. Elisabeth ’93 has two children, Finn, almost 4, and Georgia, 20 months. She lives in Darien. All is well in Weekapaug, RI. The golf club, Shelter Harbor, which I helped build is now seven years old and spectacular. It could be a good venue for a Suffield event.

My favorite part of reunion weekend had to be the recognition of Brad Gooch at dinner, and the opportunity to sing the school song at his direction. Five of the COGS my senior year participated in that effort. I met with the ’66 group at the Class Agent reception and was able to spend time with them as well. They’re a great group! And at dinner, I sat between two classmates—Ned Smith and Nick McConnell—the friendships formed. It was also great to see the Class of 61—seniors during our first year at the school, enjoying their 50th. Hope to be back next year for another great event. Many thanks to an excellent effort made by a great staff. Brewster Hall was a magnificent oasis during the storm!

I had a good summer. I sailed a lot in Canadian waters of Lake Ontario. I still work full time as a family physician with a secondary IT job. I also work as project manager and director of medical informatics for large multispecialty medical group in Syracuse, NY. I am the head of electronic medical records project. Donna and I are doing very well. Marrying Donna was like being re-born. We are loving life. I am pretty healthy, except for the total knee replacement scheduled for December. I miss hearing from everyone. See you at our 50th!

Molly and I had a great six-week tour of Alaska in our 17-foot travel trailer this summer. I would highly recommend the flight over the glaciers out of Haines and the 6-hour cruise out of Seward. We are expecting our fourth grandchild in March; Toby ’96 and his wife Jenny and daughter Stella who live in Oso, WA, are, needless to say, very excited.

We’re lucky to still be living in Fort Lauderdale since 1978. I married Brigitte Biales (Paris) in ’75 and had two kids: Christopher and Sybille. I worked two jobs in marine publishing: ’75 Yachting and ’89 ShowBoats Intl’ (publisher) and sold in 2005. Over the years we vacationed mostly in France and Colorado (skiing and big, outdoor summers), where we frequently saw Terry Staples ’65. We cruised our boat extensively in Bahamas and are impatiently awaiting the opening of Cuba. Now we’re living in a new world, our son (32), took a wicked fall in Vail and is recovering from a spinal cord injury. Our daughter (28) came home from Hawaii to help us out. Retirement is on pause. Still vividly and fondly recall my four wonderful years at Suffield, especially the sports teams, such great guys. To all of you, my best.

We all agreed to become Class Agents and work together to bring others from our class back for our 50th Reunion in 2016. Everyone can be involved; it shouldn’t be only a few as it has been. Our class, and all classes, should be grateful and appreciate the dedication, time, and serious involvement of those agents who over the many years have given so much. I have enjoyed living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest for the past 23 years. I’m planning on returning to Connecticut in 2012!

Memories... Setting the alarm for 2:00 A.M.; walking across the street in the cold to go cram for a test (many such morning walks); Capt. Mabley’s booming voice saying grace; Bruce Waldman warning me not to induce vomiting in order to miss Plane G quizzes; Ernie in the kitchen; Mr. Gooch’s derisive guffaw as he read one of my b.s. lines about Ernest Hemingway “in the dark, bleak world of ‘nada’”—I actually did write that; being thrilled that in my junior year, my voice finally started cracking. I am still based in San Francisco, so anyone flying West, let me know.

The Reunion was wonderful, even with the snow. It was great to sing with the gatherings of COGS and to do it for our mentor, Brad Gooch, and to get caught up with fellow classmates.

Bruce Fletcher

There were too few ’66 classmates returning, but we look forward to a big turnout for our 50th in 2016. Despite the difficult snow conditions it was fun. I enjoyed the “state of the school” address (we can be very proud of Suffield’s success.), meeting Trustee chair Daniel Tisch ’69, P’02, the winning football game, and “tailgate cookout.” Hopefully, the tree damage won’t scar the beauty of the campus.

Fred Doepke

For me, the highlights were things Headmaster Cahn discussed. First, the beauty and impressiveness of the “physical plant” i.e., school buildings, grounds, facilities, etc. Second, the unique and thorough application of those facilities to and for the educational needs and requirements of those using them, students, faculty, administration, and alums as well. Third, the well executed extensive planning that evolved throughout the weekend to bring everything together so well, despite the weather. The weather and a few other complications kept us (Nita and I) from attending the two breakfasts and, with my rental car left in a ditch under power lines and by downed trees in Granby after the wonderful dinner Saturday evening, I even doubted if I would make it out of Bradley Sunday at noon to get back to Seattle, WA—but with her help I did. All in all, the best part was spending a few hours with my Class of 1966 friends: Charlie Claggett (who had to leave at 11:00

I am continuing my historic preservation activities with the publication of “Karen Blixen’s Other House” in the upcoming issue of Kenya Past and Present.

The best part for me was seeing some of the ’66’s (one class ahead of mine) after 45 years. Also, the COGS reunion, complete with an alumni performance at dinner honoring Brad Gooch, who spontaneously jumped out of his chair to conduct us in the Suffield alma mater. Brad seemed to enjoy the experience as much as we did singing it. Our always winning football team still did their thing undaunted by our freak October blizzard. All in all, a memorable experience brought to us by a great school.

I am an avid NPR listener and was delighted last August as I was driving to hear an interview of Archer Mayor ’69 on NPR. Go to and search for Archer Mayor. The interview and review of his newest detective stories are all online. It was great to hear his voice and listen to Archer talk about his book. I guess Mason Nye and Gordon Glover laid the literary foundation for Archer’s future.

As is the case for so many of my classmates, I have one of those memorable birthdays coming up. It’s hard to believe. When did this happen? As a celebration, at least of continued mobility, numerous orthopedic surgeries notwithstanding, I am out in Montana fly fishing. This all started with the fishing team at Suffield and Ap’s encouragement. I learned to fly cast behind his house with Perk Perkins, now president of Orvis. I was hiking in mountains and stayed in a cabin. Rough country, great scenery. My youngest son just started at West Point, so Anne and I are now empty nesters. Best wishes to all the ’69s.

Greetings from the West Coast. I hope you all had a great summer and that this finds you and yours healthy and happy. For those who enjoy guacamole, you might want to stop by out here as this year’s avocado crop is going to be a whopper. In fact, our little community of Carpinteria has its annual Avocado Festival the first part of October every year—over 100,000 came this year— and you can experience almost every imaginable use of the fruit. The golf courses are in magnificent condition, and the company is beyond reproach. And as it has been our practice in the past, the Class of 1969 shall again be generous in our participation in this year’s Annual Fund. Be well and send in some news.

I’m living on the farm in West Greenwich, RI. I am growing medical marijuana as a licensed caregiver and starting a worm farm this spring with the goal of producing organic potting soil. Funny thing is that Suffield had a much greater impact on my daughter Sally who attended summer school there for one brief session than on me. That session changed her life and really led to her getting her master’s degree in London last year.

A huge thank you to Charlie Cahn and everyone involved in hosting Reunion. In essence, this was the first time I have returned since graduating. So many memories came back while walking around campus and wandering the halls. Looking back, I didn’t appreciate everything that Suffield was and offered...but now I

marvel at how fortunate I was to attend and how grateful I am for the friendships formed. I was in awe at the expansion of the facilities; truly a world-class, self-contained college preparatory institution. The monster snow storm that hit, knocking out power throughout New England, brought back many different memories of the intense winters at Suffield (ice fishing, skiing, etc.). A super special treat was seeing Abe Samii, Dennis Kinne, and George Pervear. They seem to never age! To my classmates, we share a special bond. Where did the 40 years go? I was truly thrilled to meet your spouses and tell stories of our younger days. I look forward to the next reunion—I will not miss it. For those who could not attend, come to the next one; you will not regret it! Thank you, and go Tigers!

Paul Liistro

Of course the impressive dynamic of the reunion was the strong draw which Suffield has for those of us who returned. In many cases, some of us have not seen each other since graduation, May 1971. Suffield made a large impression on all of us. It was fun to walk the halls, remark how the place has evolved, and actually wish we could reverse time to enjoy the substantial improvements and opportunities. Further, I was impressed with the curriculum, the emphasis on structure and discipline, and the focus on leadership. (I am not sure that I could get in!) Finally, the essence of our personalities was still evident so many years later. Morris is still the funniest guy I know; Flip, the most industrious; Leo, the most goal oriented; Raul, the most understated; Swinston, still the Flash; Loether, the quietest; Weil, the friendliest.; Thomas, the most even keeled; Glass, still in sales; and the missing in action, well, were missing: Sbriglio, Daugherty, Daniels, Perkins, Adams, and too many others. May the future be kind to us all. I look forward to the next meeting.

Paul Loether

It was great to see all the classmates from my era, as well as the teachers/coaches: Abe, Dennis, George, Don, and especially (for me) my musical mentor, Brad. Ricky and I had a lot of fun finding niches where we could engage is some unsupervised guitar playing, as well as singing with the COGs from my older brother’s era. Also, I much appreciated Charlie’s lunch-time review of the “state of the school,” as well as the strategic plan for the years ahead. Pretty exciting to know that the school is in the hands of a strong, young, visionary leader supported by an active, realistic, and dedicated board headed by Danny. Past and future, all well wrapped. It’s a great mix. Hope to be back next year.

Karl Heinz-Fruth

My senior year at Suffield Academy as an ASSIST-Scholar gave a very strong and positive impact to my life and career. So it was self-evident to return all the way from Germany to the 40th Reunion of our graduating class. My favorite part of the weekend was the Friday night reception at the county club and the after-reception party at the Suffield Inn! I was amazed by

the attendance of our class. Talking to guys I have not seen for 40 years was just so much fun and pleasure. And it was great to see Abe Samii! Well, he had to come, because we dedicated our yearbook to him. The campus tour, done by very engaged students obviously proud of their school, showed a well mixed balance of traditional customs and new developments. And Charlie Cahn’s “state of the school” address showed that every dollar given to the Annual Fund is a good investment! I feel proud that our class won the award for donating the most dollars to the Annual Fund. In my opinion dinner was highlighted by the funny slideshow and the COGS performance conducted by Brad Gooch. Farewell on Sunday was combined with the goal to meet again for our 50th. I will come again if God so wills. Many thanks to the Alumni Office for organizing this great event!

I took a team of eight students and four faculty from Millbrook School to Ghana, West Africa, this summer. We did a two-day cultural and sports outreach with four local schools, worked at our children’s home in Old Ningo, and then visited other orphanages and schools for the blind and deaf and shared with them. It was a great trip and great experience for all. Hope to bring a team from Suffield in the future! For more information, visit us at My best to all, especially the Class of ’74.

Reunion was great! The Saturday evening blizzard was unbelievable. The last time I saw snow like that was when I was stranded in Washington, DC, several years ago in February for three days.

I am thinking of Suffield this time of year when the leaves change, football weekends in New England, and when one’s team (St. Louis Cardinals) is in the fall classic. I took my 14-year-old son Harrison to games 1 & 2 in St. Louis vs. the Texas Rangers. Thanks to our team spirit and infamous “Rally Squirrel,” the Redbirds prevailed in 7 games. Absolutely priceless!

Thirty–five years? Where has all the time gone? On the other hand, the polyester suits and platform shoes do seem light years away. Fast-forwarding to the relatively recent past, my wife Rose C. Palermo and I are raising our two children, Anthony (14) and Isabel (11) in bucolic Rye, NY. We migrated from NYC to suburbia over 14 years ago, providing the kids with the perfect balance between the peace and quite of Rye and the excitement and pace of NYC only 35 minutes away. Rose is the quintessential “soccer mom.” Anthony and Isabel are not only involved with travel soccer but seemingly every other activity, including swimming and performing with the Metropolitan Opera Children’s Chorus at Lincoln Center. It is a full-time task in which I enthusiastically participate. With the remaining time, I am busy with my law practice. The poor economy has affected some aspects, such as the real estate transactions, but criminal defense remains busy. Previously, I was a 14-year prosecutor in Bronx County, leaving in 2001 as the deputy chief of homicides and the Grand Jury Bureau. I also found time to run a third time for Westchester County District Attorney after running the two closest races for district attorney in the history of Westchester County, but falling short—six points in 2001 and three points in 2005. Last year, I took on the political machine and did not fare as well. Unfortunately, running as an independent is very difficult. It is easy to see how the system favors career politicians over dedicated public servants, and equally easy to understand why so many New Yorkers view their government as being “dysfunctional.” As far as staying in touch with my Suffield past, I do check on Ralph Adler periodically. Coincidently, since Ralph moved to New Zealand, the island seems to be having more regular tremors. What message could the local gods be sending? Suffield was one of the greatest years of my life. I am looking forward to the reunion.

Jannie Walker Larsson

We had a great summer. We stayed in an apartment of a previous customer of mine in Cancún, Mexico. What a fantastic time! Crystal, turquoise water for miles, excellent food, and nice people. We are not avid snorkelers, but we had tremendous tours off the famous coast of Cozumel and Isla Mujeres. The Mayan ruins around the area, especially Chichen Itza were inspiring, and the

adventure parks were just what was need for our family of eight. The vacation could not have been better, and it was a well need respite for the intensive spring and fall we are having. I have recently been certified to work with a method for group development according to former Temple University Professor Susan A. Wheelan, and I will finish off a course in leading change in Colorado in October. I am having a great time with the company and getting more and more back to my roots with cultural dynamics and group development, which feels like “coming home” since I graduated with a degree in cultural anthropology.

Tim Rice

My family and I are doing well in New Hampshire. I am in my sixth year as an elementary school principal in Barnstead, NH. Our school is a Pre-K to Grade 8 school of more than 500 students; I love the range of ages and the different challenges each grade presents. My wife Anne has her own law practice, Rice Law Office in Laconia, NH. Our oldest child, Charles, is a sophomore at Georgetown University in the School of Foreign Service. (He graduated from St. Paul’s, Concord, NH in 2010.) Our twins are in different schools. Katherine is a junior at Gilford Hill School, where she’s an honor’s student and varsity athlete in soccer and lacrosse. Her twin brother Guy is attending St. Paul’s, and he is also an honor’s student and varsity athlete in soccer, cross-country skiing, and lacrosse. I miss seeing everyone at reunion times, but with my school schedule and trying to get to my children’s events (Parents’ Weekend at Georgetown, Homecoming at Gilford, or Parents’ Weekend at St. Paul’s, and the various sports teams they compete in), it is difficult to travel back to Suffield. Go, Tigers!

I want to give a shout out to the classes of ’76, ’77 and ’78. I was hoping to get to the October 2011 reunion, and decided that I need to prepare for my reunion in 2012. Let’s make it a huge success! Hey to the wrestling team, football, softball, field hockey, and modern dance of ’76 and ’77. I hope to see all friends of days gone by and meet up in 2012. Check out my website!

I think the last time I communicated with the Suffield community was around our 25th reunion. It’s amazing how much life can change in 10 years. I left IBM in 2003 after 20-plus years with the aim of becoming a teacher. After marrying a wonderful man, Mark E. Dean, and moving West—Tucson, Arizona, and San Jose, California—I achieved my goal. When asked why I moved from OD consulting in corporate America to teaching in public schools, I tell them, “I wanted to go from cure to prevent.” And I love being a teacher! I taught fifth grade in San Jose for the 2007-08 school year with a wonderful group of colleagues and had a lively, creative, and diverse class. That great year was followed by another move. Did I mention that my husband works for IBM? It was back East for us. We moved to Bethel, Connecticut, and after a little more than two years we had the opportunity to do an international assignment.

It is one of the least conservative Arab countries and surprisingly comfortable. It feels very western in many ways—diverse population, with tons of dining, shopping, and entertainment. The location also makes it easier to travel to places we always wished to see. In addition to going on safari in South Africa, diving in the Maldives, and checking out Australia, I hope to get to Sweden so I can visit my old roommate, Jan Walker. Wish me luck!

Went on my first cruise for my 50th birthday in October! I am certain it must be a mistake on my birth certificate. Went to Tortola, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Antigua, St. Croix, St. Maarten & St. Kitts! Awesome!

I am certainly biased, but Class of ’81 wins most fun for the weekend. We tried to get everyone on the dance floor, but we were the main folks out there. The real great part was when Barbara Cartmell got the entire Class of ’81 at midnight on Bell Hill sledding—that was priceless. I also really loved hearing Charlie Cahn deliver the long term campus and school plan. Outstanding! It makes me want to send my kids there.

All is well here in Maine. This fall marks the beginning of my 26th year teaching, and my 19th year teaching French at Lincoln Academy, in the Newcastle/Damariscotta area of mid-coast Maine. I still have great memories of my all French classes at Suffield with Dave Compton. I stay busy driving my two sons Will (12) and Jake (15) to all their sporting events, which take place year round. They both play baseball, soccer, and hockey, and ski/snowboard when they have some free time. We live five miles from the Camden Snow Bowl, so it’s a great after school activity for a few hours before homework. We also manage frequent trips to Sugarloaf when the hockey schedule permits. In my free time, I continue to enter my two horses in 3-phase competitive events.

The last four months have been very busy for the Lynam family! We bought and sold homes and got Mirabella and Gabriella settled into kindergarten and second grade at their new school. My plastic surgery practice continues to keep me busy, and I am the only doctor willing to take care of the facial fractures at one of our local hospitals, so that makes for some strange work hours. My wife works part time as an anesthesiologist, and her mother stays with us often to help keep the family running smoothly. I often hint about the girls attending Suffield when the time comes; so far, Michelle’s motherly instincts prevent her from considering it. Saw my old roommate Steve Abramson in San Diego last year while there on business. One of these days I am hoping to find the time to learn how to play golf!

It’s a lot of work but fun! I keep in touch with Brinley Ford ’86, Denise Choquette ’84 and Dave Moore ’84.

I’m happy to have reunited with John Hess and family, thanks to our 25th Class Reunion in October ’10.

Pictured here l-r: Logan Orr (3), Finn O’Keefe (5), Brody Hess (5), Rory Hess (8). It was also nice to see Steve Kline ’83 there this year. I enjoy life in the New Jersey burbs. We got out to a hot air balloon festival this summer, which was pretty amazing (see photo). It’s fun to be in touch with so many SA alumni on Facebook and LinkedIn. Let’s keep it up! I am hoping our 30th reunion is better attended. Do you hear that, Class of ’85? Start planning now!

Stacy Orben Glazier

Dave passed away unexpectedly on June 29, 2011. He is survived by his two adored children, Jack and Emma Rose, and his wife of 18 years, Jennifer. He is also survived by his mother Ruth of Keene, NH, brother John, sister Jane, and many relatives and friends who loved his sense of humor, love of adventure, and passion for life. He will be terribly missed by everyone who knew him. Dave was incredibly proud of his career at Suffield and loved to tell stories about his old classmates and teachers. He played several sports, including baseball and wrestling, but loved the academics just as much. It was a wonderful time in his life, and he always remembered it fondly. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to his children’s educational fund and leave a note for his family at his website,

My husband and I are doing great in Alexandria, Virginia. Our girls Grayson (4) and Karsten (21 months) are enjoying their new German Shepherd puppy Shep. I am still in touch with Cinnamon —who is great—and would love to see anyone if they are ever in the DC area.

It was great to share time with old friends and faculty as the Tigers visited the Cats for “The Football Game of the Year.” The new Simosa Field was the beautiful setting for a great game between our sister schools.

Our 25th reunion was memorable indeed. Highlights were our tailgate party at the football game in the snow; winning the participation award for the most alumni in attendance; winning the awards for longest traveled (Joe Cunningham and Michelle Chestnut from Hawaii); and the candlelit late night party in the lobby of the powerless Springhill Suites Hotel. More than a quarter of our class came back for our 25th!

Dave Eckhardt

The Eckhardts had a great summer in Vermont and were able to spend time with several Academy alums. The summer kicked off with a great father-son camping trip on the Connecticut coast with Brian Greenho and his son Morgan. While in Landgrove, Vermont, we spent a great deal of time with Tom and Suzy Harris ’87 and also caught up with Brinley Ford Ehlers and her family. Another highlight was traveling to Maine to visit with Bill Phipps and his family at the beach. I cannot believe that we celebrated our 25th reunion this fall. It was great to see so many members of the Class of 1986 here on campus.

It was great to see old friends Nick Molander, Kim Ames Ide, Dave Malley, Pete Cerrato, Matt Levy, Kelly Powers, and Ethan Hooper, as well as faculty Bill Butcher, Andy Lowe and especially Barry Cleary, who was my favorite faculty member at Suffield and a mentor to me. I missed seeing the campus, as it was a blizzard and the power was out, but I was impressed that the school kept the event going in Brewster. It was very special to be there.

I spent most of my summer in Kuwait, except for the week and a half when I was on “mission” to Europe where I attended two different meetings for work. The first meeting was in London titled “The 2011 High-Level Partnership Dialogue” (July 3-4), while the second was in Vienna, Austria, where I attended the 69th Bi-Annual Meeting of the Coordination Group (July 6-8). Prior to those meetings, Ed Mack Jr., a Suffield alum, came to visit me in Kuwait for a few days. I drove him around Kuwait, showed him the sights and sounds, and let him take my SUV for a drive on the dunes of Kuwait. Finally I got to go on a well deserved vacation, so I decided to attend my friend’s wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I am currently writing this note while transiting at TAV Istanbul Ataturk Airport after trying to help a guy out. I found out that the guy I helped happened to be a Suffield alumni, as well. His name is Robert Totah ’76. Such a small world!

It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Suffield Academy graduate Christine Tribble McCrea ’96 to represent the United States in the sport of show-jumping at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, in October. Chris was one of three horse and rider combinations selected by the USET (United States Equestrian Team) to represent the United States. Everything was at stake for the Americans, including qualification for the 2021 Olympic Games. As a team, they faced the pressure and delivered the United States its third Equestrian Team Gold medal and an invitation to London. Two days after this important win, Chris entered the ring again, to compete on her own. Aboard Romantovich Take One, Chris had her fifth clear round

Kate Dineen

This past September I had the pleasure of spending quality time with great friends from SA: Phil White, Amy Terceira, Nit Tapia and Amy Groszyk in both New York and Boston. It was nice to catch up with them just before I departed for New Zealand to travel, work, and enjoy the rest of the Rugby World Cup. New Zealand is a place I hope to further grow my urban apparel business, Bakline, Inc. ( As always, if any SA alum are in New York—just drop me a note: Cheers!

My husband, Alex Lawton, and I were married on the beach at the Chatham Bars Inn on October 22nd! It was a gorgeous, autumn day to celebrate with some of my dearest Suffield friends, including Headmaster Charlie Cahn, Hillary Rockwell Cahn ’88, Jared Dubey ’00, Benjamin Lemire ’00, and Crosby LeVeen ’99. Peyton and Harrison Cahn even made an appearance on the dance floor! We were also lucky enough to have Alexandra Tremaine ’03 photograph the event. It was a truly magical day!

Amy Terceira


I am living in Paris, France, learning French, (Mrs. Saven would be shocked with my progress!) traveling, and making a point to indulge in the great food and wine! I recently had a mini SA reunion in NYC with Rob Schnabel, Phil White, and Nit Tapia. We had an excellent time reminiscing. I see Jess Chanderli all the time in Paris. Some of my closest friends today are the ones I met at SA!

In January, just after my daughter’s second birthday, I got engaged to Mark Goodwin, and then on July 29th we celebrated the birth of our second child, Jacob Adam Goodwin. I will be taking a year off from teaching middle school in Bermuda to be at home with him. Rayland Baxter ’02

Rayland Baxter

This is my favorite time of year. It reminds me a lot of Suffield. Orange leaves and cold evenings. I really loved going to school there. All things are going steady down here in Nashville. A new record is on the way, and it should be out early 2012. Touring around the country from here ‘till who knows. I am hoping to run into some old Suffield alums along the way. Been playing alongside several famous artists including Willie Nelson, Grace Potter, The Civil Wars, and the Jayhawks to name a few. [A Tennessee native, Rayland is quickly becoming one of Nashville’s most buzzed-about singer-songwriters. His full-length album is expected out sometime soon. Check out his website] Jenny Brookes ’00 with Mark Goodwin, son Adam and daughter Marlena. Fall 2011 | 61

Generation in Denver. The elephant work will surely continue interminably, but my lease and Seventh Gen contract terminate in August. I have no idea what I will do what next! Anyone?

Jena Greaser

Kristin McCurdy Motley

I currently live in Hanover, NH, and work in development for Dartmouth Medical School. I married Brooks Motley on October 1st at a summer camp wedding in Maine! We met at Bates College, and he is a medical student here at Dartmouth. Outside of work, I write a food blog: Check it out!

2003 CLASS AGENTS Lydia Pillsbury | Lindsay Rousseau | Bronya Shillo | Lindsey Pell | Eric Yale | Lydia Pillsbury

I recently moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with my fiancé Jesse. We met as undergrads at Bowdoin and have relocated to Pittsburgh for his graduate program. This fall I am traveling through Central Europe with a friend from college. I would love to know if there are other alums in the Pittsburgh area.

Shoshana Pinedo

I am back in Amsterdam working as a fashion design intern at Viktor & Rolf. Next week I get to go to Paris Fashion Week! I will be finishing my master’s in Fashion Design at the end of 2012 at the Academy of Art, University in San Francisco.

I moved to Newton, MA, in June. I got a summer job as a ropes course/rock wall specialist, and my boyfriend Ryan got a summer internship at Toole Design, which designs pedestrian and bicyclefriendly facilities in and around Boston. We did this move while I had just been sent to the ER with a bacterial infection. I could not bike race for a month. I fortunately was able to recover in time to fly out to Sun Valley, Idaho, where I had qualified to compete in the Mountain Biking Cross-Country National Championships. It was a blast! It has perfect weather and so many neat things to see, including Dr. David Holmes ’60, former headmaster during my time at SA! I had just completed my cross-country race and there he was, sitting on the patio. We had a chance to catch up. He is the Head of School at the Community School right around the corner from the resort. I brought back a silver and bronze medal to the East Coast! Not bad for being sick for a month and only having 2 days to acclimate before the first race. Hopefully next year I will have some sponsors that can help to make it a longer trip! The rest of my racing season has been going very well. I will go all the way into December. I also had the chance to meet up with Alison Leonard ’06 in Boston. She is getting a double master’s in accounting and business. We went to the Nike store to get our picture taken in front of Prefontaine and his famous quote that we had on our 2003 S.A. girls’ crosscountry running shirts. For the fall, I acquired a position working for McLean Hospital in their Pathways Academy as one of the special education assistant counselors. It is also only a 3-mile bike ride from home. I am planning to take the GREs at the end of September and apply to graduate programs in the Boston area for education and environmental science. In September, I received my professional license upgrade for mountain biking. This was due to my successful 2011 season, especially my strong results at Nationals! I will not have a paid contract for the 2012 season, but hopefully in the near future (2013!). I am waiting to hear about a grant from the Women’s Sports Foundation, and I am also going to be looking for teams and sponsors. If I do not get on a team that can help with the costs of travel and training expenses, then I will be reaching out for sponsors that will be represented on my own jersey. If anyone is interested in supporting me or if you know a company or individual who may be interested, please contact me.

Carrie Carpenter Meckel

Over the summer, I married Steven Meckel, whom I’ve been dating since I was a junior at SA. I have also started my first year of study at Quinnipiac University School of Law. I continue to play rugby for the Hartford Wild Roses and am the president of the club.

Elsie Prichard Prior

I am doing great and have just celebrated my one year wedding anniversary to Ian Prior. We were married on October 1, 2010, in Newport, RI, with Shoshana Pinedo as one of my bridesmaids. Ian and I are currently living on the east side of Providence, where I am enjoying working in real estate/ property management, and Ian is practicing law.

Kate Braden

I just got promoted to associate buyer of girls for, so I’m excited to begin a new work venture. I have been training for the NYC marathon since June through team-in-training and have raised $4000 thus far. All money goes to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which will be used for finding a cure! It is such a rewarding experience with a great group of people.

Colleen Knight

I have been living in NYC for over a year now and working as the general manager/sommelier for Parlor Steakhouse in the Upper East Side. I see Jules Okai at least once a week and run into past Suffield graduates often here. I miss Suffield and hopefully will make it back to visit soon.

Gustafson, Lucy Reinhardt and Stephanie Shaker. They are doing incredible things, as well as the rest of my unbelievably talented Class of 2005. Maggie just returned from Thailand and is now is teaching in New Orleans. Lucy will be returning from Thailand in a few weeks and will be moving to San Francisco, and Shaker is making moves towards being the most awesome lawyer in the world. Just chatted it up with Pat McDermott in the virtual world. He is in a band (you should all like it on Facebook).

Philippe Arman

I have recently moved back to New York City from Paris, where I was recording for my musical solo project. Here’s a link to the latest music video shot for the second single GROOVES!

Dave Duff

Life has been very busy and eventful this past year. Between traveling to Italy and France, working on some exciting construction projects throughout Maryland with my company, Southway Builders, and training for a marathon, needless to say, life’s been fun! It was great seeing some old faces at the lacrosse alumni event this past spring. I’m still convinced Dub-T hasn’t changed a bit :). I’m currently living down in Baltimore, so if anyone is around, there are plenty of bars to meet. I hope all is well with the Class of ’04 and, in particular, the PGs. Go, Tigers!

Kristin Matchett

2011 has been a year filled with different experiences. I ran the Boston Marathon in April, participated in a surgical mission in Uganda during the summer, and now I am well into the Physician Assistant Program at Northeastern University. I had the pleasure of being on Suffield’s campus for a few days—it’s gorgeous! I am also incredibly proud of my brother, Dan Matchett ’08, for his future endeavor as a pilot in the Air Force!

Lewis Stowe

I have left Scotland and am now teaching English at the Anglo School in Warsaw, Poland. Things have been going well so far, though after having classes with teenagers, I have gained a great deal of respect for my teachers at Suffield.

2005 CLASS AGENTS Rick Devlin | Dan Fisher | Steph Shaker | Casey Shanley | David Appleby

I have moved to Manhattan after taking a job at Barclays Capital this past August. I am happy to report that I continue to be in touch with most of my best friends from Suffield, and despite being scattered across the country, we generally get together for a long weekend at least once a year. My younger brother Gabriel will be starting his senior year at Suffield in the fall, and though the college admissions process is grueling and will require a lot of work, I try to remind him not to let his last year at Suffield fly by too quickly. I hope all is well, and I look forward to seeing everyone next time I’m on campus.

Jillian Huffman

I went from Purdue (go, Boilermakers!) to nursing school. I am now a nurse in the pediatric ICU at nationwide Children’s Hospital, and I love it. I am doing what I love and I make a difference in all of my patients’ families’ lives.

Jamie Ansorge

I took a few months off this summer to relax and travel in the Middle East. I just started Brooklyn Law School. I am still doing political consulting for a congresswoman and other local politicians on the side. I continue to work on my non-profit at the UN. I stay in touch with the Suffield guys through fantasy football.

2006 CLASS AGENTS Alison Leonard | Eric Litmer | Jen Mais | Luke McComb | Gina Petrone | Lev Saltonstall | Chris Stafford | Pete Farnsworth

I have been working in the film and TV business for the past few years in the Tri-State area. This past January I moved to Brooklyn, NY, and so far I love it! I just finished working on the TV shows The Voice and The Real Housewives of NYC, and this spring I was back in Connecticut on the set of Officer Down, which will be released in theaters in 2012. To the Class of 2006, look me up next time you are in NYC!

A year later, I accepted a new job in Wilton, CT, working in operations for Fairfield Chemical Carriers Inc., a chemical tanker shipping company. I assist in managing the day-to day-operations of a fleet of almost 30 ships. I continue to serve as a Strategic Sealift Officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve and am still an active swimmer with U.S. Master’s Swimming.

Matthew Wiggin

Busy year of traveling and breaking into the theater business. Productions have taken me to Florida, New York, Illinois, Iowa, and Arizona. I will be heading to the Woodstock Playhouse in November and December for A Christmas Carol, to Circa 21 Playhouse for Grease, and to The Broadway Palm and Dutch Apple Theater for a Legally Blonde tour.

Ron Bathrick

I hope everyone is doing well. I graduated from Clark University with a degree in geography. While at Clark, I played baseball for another former Tiger, Jason Falcon ’91. In my senior year, Clark baseball finished with their best season record in the program’s history. I am starting up law school at Roger Williams in the fall of 2011. I hope to attend Reunion. I can’t believe it’s already been five years.

Rachel Puklin

I graduated in May with my master’s in education. I am now volunteering at UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center in the Child Life department. I am hoping to complete a Child Life internship in the spring and become a certified Child Life specialist by next summer!

See everyone next time I’m on campus!

I graduated from Gettysburg College in May with a degree in history, and six months later I have just landed my first full time job with Oracle as a business development consultant! I start my new job at the end of November. I hope everyone from the Class of ’07 is doing great, and I can’t wait for the five year Reunion to catch up with all my friends. But until then, I wish everyone the very best.

I am now living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as a member of Teach for America. For the next two years I’ll be teaching high school math in a school outside of Baton Rouge. It’s weird to be a teacher myself now, but luckily I had great examples at Suffield after whom I can model my own teaching. It’s made me appreciate how great a math teacher Mrs. Vasilenko was!

Alessandra Perna

I graduated from Babson College in May double concentrating in legal studies and marketing. Recently, I traveled to Ghana, Africa, to teach business and entrepreneurship to high school students. It was the most rewarding and amazing experience of my life. I plan on traveling back to Africa this year to continue teaching students and to help them start up their own businesses. Congratulations to everyone who graduated college this year!

Hannah Thompson

I moved to Aspen, CO, in June after graduating from Colorado College and absolutely love it! It is beautiful, and I am enjoying what the mountains have to offer. I can’t wait for ski season!

I am currently working on her Master’s at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York City studying American Fine and Decorative Art.

2008 CLASS AGENTS Becca Bathrick | Kirsten Chalke | Thomas Drummond-Hay | Barbara Kaplan | Kaela Keyes | Lindsay Life | Erica Siver

I’m going to be a senior this fall at the University of New Hampshire. I can’t believe it’s gone by so fast! I’m majoring in dietetics and will hopefully become a registered dietitian after I graduate. I spent five weeks this summer studying the Mediterranean diet in Ascoli Piceno, Italy. I determined that gelato should be a necessary part of the diet. I also have been interning at WIC in Springfield, MA, as a nutritionist. Hope everyone is well!

Becca Bathrick

Hello, to all! I spent the summer in California visiting my grandparents with my mom and three sisters. My brother, Ron Bathrick ’06, entered Roger Williams Law School; we are very proud of him! I am currently in my last year at Seton Hall University and received the 2011 Janice M. Gamper Nursing Scholarship. I am currently working at Yale-New Haven Hospital as a student nurse assistant and absolutely love it. I am very excited for the year ahead of me. I miss Suffield very much and cannot wait to see everyone very soon.

As a senior and an economics major at Boston College, I have been incredibly busy balancing school, lacrosse, and ROTC. Next year, I will commission into the United States Air Force as a 2nd Lt. I have been selected to attend flight school at the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training program (ENJJPT) at Sheppard AFB in Texas. At this assignment, I will train with pilots from all over the world and will hopefully be one step closer to becoming a fighter pilot.

Tom Cyran

Senior year has arrived quicker than I had imagined here at Hamilton. I will graduate in May with an economics major and a double minor in biology and mathematics. In addition, I have accepted a job offer in NYC with FactSet Research Systems, a financial data and software company working in their Investment Banking and Brokerage group. Outside of the classroom I am both a manager and captain of our Club Water Polo program, which hosted the Division III Club National Championships at our home facility. We were able to go 2-1 on the weekend and earned a fifth place finish. As a result of Coach Andy Lowe’s early encouragement, I have earned three varsity letters as a member of the Hamilton swim team, and I was selected to the All-Conference NESCAC Championship team last year. As one of this year’s Hamilton swim team captains, I am looking forward to improve upon last year’s swimming successes.

Liz Snow

I am a senior now at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. I am studying Athletic Training, but am currently applying to graduate school to study Speech-Language Pathology. I plan to attend graduate school in either the New York City or Boston area and will hopefully eventually have a career as a Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist! Recently I ran in my first marathon—the Rock and Roll Marathon in Savannah, Georgia. I really enjoyed this experience and my next goal is to get a qualifying time to compete in the Boston Marathon within the next few years!

2010 CLASS AGENTS Ben Adams | Michelle Autuori | Justine de Chazal | Mariah Gonzalez | Tom Leonard | Alyssa Palomba | Lucas Traber | Mariah Gonzalez

I spent five great weeks as a teacher-assistant at Summer Academy 2011! It was awesome seeing so many classmates, as well as meeting other SA alumni. I helped with three classes: two public speaking classes with Matt Jones ’07 and a basic writing class with Drew Gamere ’93. This experience was very rewarding, and it was great to be back home at Suffield Academy!

Alex Anderson

I’m doing my first college extracurricular activity this fall called Project-Eye-to-Eye. It’s an after school program for 7th and 8th graders with learning disabilities where college kids who also have learning disabilities mentor them. What better way to show middle school students that they can go to college? We’re mentoring at School of the Future on 22nd and Lexington. There are about 15 of us in the NYU chapter, but I believe there are about 80 chapters in the country. Other than that, I just had midterms and am just living life one day at a time. I hope everything is well. I think about Suffield fondly at least every week.

Rob Fay

I am doing well at UC Boulder. One of his roommates is Joe McGovern, and Connor Bray has come to visit.

Hey, everyone! I just finished my freshman year at St. Lawrence University! I am loving it so far. I had an amazing first year and can’t wait to go back at the end of August.

Amber Rodgers

I have just returned from spending the month of June in Ethiopia, Africa! It was an incredible experience spent with 13 of my St. Lawrence classmates. For the summer, I worked as a white water rafting guide with Zoar Outdoor in Western Massachusetts. Check it out! I am majoring in sociology with a sport studies and exercise science minor at St. Lawrence University.

Anne McGovern

I have loved my past two years at BU! I may spend too much time with Charles Reeb ’07, but oh, well! I spent this past summer living on Cape Cod interning for United Way and working for TD Bank. It was a great summer, and next semester, I plan to study abroad again. This time in Madrid.

CLASS AGENTS Emily Aiken | Joe Begley | Serge Derby | Kachenta Descartes | Karoline Hegbom | Didi McDonald | Joe Palomba | James Park | Shamier Settle | Lester Taylor | Sam Waters

I spent the summer in London. For two weeks I helped film the television show Mud Men for the History Channel, with a company called ITN. I went to Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Paris, Oxford, Dublin, and Barcelona. I hope all is well in Suffield.

Max Warner

I have been at college for a little more than a month now, and I finally got over that weird feeling of not being at Suffield anymore. But, it is just the way of the world. This summer was a quiet one for me, minus having my first paying job ever, (which was pretty awesome) and an annual trip to Pittsburgh to watch the Steelers play a preseason game. Suffield will always have a place in my heart!

Lorenzo Bernardez

Summer went well. I played about 70 games or so of baseball tournaments and things like that. I received an honorable mention for MVP in a tournament in Rhode Island. Summer started with me going to the Bahamas with Lester Taylor for a week. College is going well; classes are not too bad. College sports are no joke, though; you have to be physically and mentally tough. Physically, I am fine and am getting stronger, but I am still working on the mental toughness. I miss Suffield more and more every day. My love goes out to all.

Headmaster Charlie Cahn The Cahn Family

The 2010-2011 Annual Report of Giving reflects a record-breaking period of financial support for Suffield Academy. Over 3,250 gifts were made to the school last year—an unprecedented level of generosity that symbolizes Suffield’s momentum. The Annual Fund reached a new high for the nineteenth consecutive year, and we are most pleased to see the continued growth in the percentage of alumni and parent donors. In the past ten years the percentage of alumni donors has increased from 17% to 40%, and parent giving from 50% to 93%. Thank you for helping make this possible. I also want to thank our many volunteers, including our alumni class agents, for their dedicated support of our development efforts. Special thanks go to trustee Suzy Vogler P’11 and John O’Brien P’12, ’14 as our parent Annual Fund chairs, and to David Spitzler ’81 and Andrea Rich ’01 as chairs of our alumni efforts. Our Board of Trustees also deserves the highest praise for their deep commitment to the school. Their wise governance and stewardship have helped Suffield build its strong position. Most importantly, I trust everyone listed in the following pages knows that contributions to our school really make a dramatic impact. Suffield is a worthy beneficiary of your philanthropy. In leading Suffield, Hillary and I want to emphasize how deeply appreciative we are for your generosity. Together, we are achieving new heights and securing the bright future we all want for this special Academy and our students.

With gratitude,

Charles Cahn III Headmaster

Thank-you Director of Development Phil Riegel ’87

Each year at Suffield Academy we have a theme. The theme is connected to a community text that everyone—students, faculty, and even many of our parents and alumni — reads each summer. The book this year is Of Beetles and Angels, written by Mawi Asgedom, and the theme is gratitude. Our students and faculty certainly have many reasons to be grateful at Suffield Academy. Our school remains a nurturing, inspiring environment where our students can take chances and push themselves. We also enjoy a pristine New England setting on a campus that has seen unprecedented physical improvements over the past decade. The gratitude of the Suffield family is made evident in the pages that follow. Gifts, both big and small, are expressions of support for the school and its dedicated faculty. Each donation allows another success in the classroom, art studio, or playing field. A Suffield education is a gift to be treasured, and we are grateful to those of you who help make it possible.

Val Klimenko ’12 Valeriya (Val) decided she wanted to go to school in the United States at a young age. Her parents were reluctant to send her so far away and argued the maybe England was a better (closer) choice. Val was determined and slowly convinced her parents to look at schools in New England. When they got to Suffield, her mind was made up. “It is not that common for Russian students to come to the United States”, Val commented. “We were thrilled when we realized that Anna McCarthy, who is originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia, was on the faculty. That definitely made the decision easier for my parents and she has been a touch-stone for me the last three years.” “To be honest, my parents didn’t know what the Annual Fund was or its importance to the school. Mrs. McCarthy made sure to call my parents to explain. It’s that extra step that the school takes in everything it does that makes me so proud to be here. Russian and American traditions are so different. All it took was the extra effort to explain the importance of the Annual Fund and my parents were thrilled to participate.”

Jeff White ’65 Jeff has worked for the Boston Red Sox since 2002 and is currently he responsible for advising ownership and management on a variety of industry and team financial issues. He is also Treasurer of the Red Sox Foundation. Two years ago he joined with the Red Sox and several other investors in purchasing the Salem Red Sox minor league team in the Carolina League. Previously, Jeff spent 12 years at CBS including stints at CBS Records and serving as Vice President of Finance for CBS News. After CBS he was the CFO for Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) and then President of Child Growth and Development, an educational toy company. In speaking of Suffield, Jeff comments, “My association with the school dates back to a fall afternoon in 1961. I am not sure that I had even turned 14 yet, but I was leaving home for an extended period for the first time in my life.” He continues, “Like anything, the next four years were marked by ups and downs, but in between periods of steady growth, and learning how to deal with disappointment and opportunity. There was also enormous support from interested faculty members. My best friends were Dennis Kinne and George Pervear. I can honestly say there was never a Ken Lindfors history class that I didn’t enjoy. Mason Nye, Brad Gooch, and Jim Carlisle brought me into books and writers that I never would have read myself. I had great respect for Wasky and Herman Smith. And then there my classmates who after nearly 50 years remain in touch.” “That’s my first phase. The second occurred more than 15 years ago when I was asked to serve on the Board. We have had great leadership and made so much progress. Ap Seaverns would be very proud of how we finished the job that he started. Much of the physical plant has changed and the specialized services far outweigh what was done years ago. The students and faculty, thankfully they are much the same. The kids grow up and gain confidence. The faculty push and encourage until that day they leave. It’s funny. I remember everything about the day I came to Suffield and little about the day I graduated. I am not sure why, but maybe I never left.”

Kim Wiggin P’06 Kim Wiggin is in her eleventh year as a member of the Suffield faculty. She serves as the director of the school’s academic support program. In gratitude for her profound impact on Suffield students, an anonymous donor endowed The Kim Wiggin Chair in Academic Support as part of Suffield’s recent The Time is Now capital campaign. Kim notes, “My work at Suffield is by far the most rewarding and stimulating of my 30+ year teaching career. If you had told me back in 2002 when I started, after being prodded by Peggy Sullivan to submit my resume, that I would still be here and be so happy, I would have said you were crazy. But, here I am. I love the fact that I am at a school that not only says it has a commitment to students with varying academic talents, but provides the support and encouragement each student needs to become the best they can be. Charlie’s model of “distance traveled” fits perfectly with my philosophy of education, in which I believe every child has the capacity to learn when provided with creative teaching. I find myself boasting about both Suffield and the students in many other parts of my life, including to people all over the world as I travel each March with these amazing young people.” She continues, “Giving back to Suffield is important to me for many reasons, not the least of which is to honor the wonderful experience my son, Matthew, had here for four years. Being able to experience the school through the eyes of a parent as well as a teacher was a unique gift, and I feel a need to continue my stewardship of Suffield for as long as I am able.

Reed Barbe ’12 A graduate of the Eaglebrook School, Reed Barbe joined the Suffield Academy community as a freshman in the fall of 2008. Reed has emerged as an impressive student athlete. He will attend the University of Denver next fall and play lacrosse for renowned coach Bill Tierney. Reed’s love for lacrosse did not blossom until he arrived at Suffield. In fact, he excelled at three sports as a freshman varsity member for the soccer, squash, and lacrosse teams. However, after the spring lacrosse season, Reed decided this was the sport he wanted to pursue at the next level. “My coaches, Mr. Edwards and Mr. Pillsbury, were instrumental in developing both my skills and my passion for the game,” said Reed. “It motivated me to keep playing throughout the summers and to make the sport among my highest priorities.” Reed’s off-season commitment allowed him to garner attention from some of the nation’s top lacrosse programs. Reed particularly impressed coach Bill Tierney, among others, at the “Connecticut Super Sophs” during the summer before his junior year. Shortly thereafter, Reed verbally committed to the University of Denver in February of his junior year. He said, “It was nice to have the decision made to not have to stress about it.” Reed has worked extremely hard to bounce back after a series of injuries. His efforts were rewarded this fall on the soccer field as he was named a Western New England Prep School Soccer Association (WNEPSSA) All-Star, and helped lead the boys’ soccer team to the quarterfinals in the 2011 Prep School Tournament. “I will certainly miss the wonderful support system and structure that Suffield Academy provides, but at the same time I know that Suffield has prepared me to be successful in college. I will always cherish the relationships I made here with students and faculty.”

Nick Alfano ’15 Charlie Alfano ’77 and his family have had a long relationship with Suffield Academy. As he writes, “We have three generations of Alfanos associated with the school, including my father (Charles ’39), sister (Susan Galleshaw ’82), brother-in-law (Frank Galleshaw ’81), aunts (Rose Marie Alfano Austin ’45) and uncle and now, our son, Nick ’15.” Alyce and Charlie Alfano toured several area schools with Nick, but Suffield was where their hearts led them. Nick is off to a great start in his freshman year, excelling academically, taking part in cross-country this fall, and looking forward to playing basketball and baseball. He is also a star admissions tour guide. Charlie says, “We are committed to the success of Suffield and look forward to our continued support of this very special community.”

The pertinent information for wiring is: Bank: First National Bank of Suffield ABA #: 011-102-353 Account #: 1089-8 Account Name: Suffield Academy Operating Account Please make sure that your bank includes your name and a description of the purpose of the transfer as reference identification so that we can clearly identify the source and application of the funds. Additionally, please call the Development Office at 860.386.4461 prior to wiring funds. Planned Giving

Explore opportunities that combine giving to Suffield with your personal needs and tax situation. Planned gifts can range from simple donations to complex trust arrangements. We encourage you to call the Development Office or to speak to an estate-planning Atty. to decide which strategies will work best for you. Cash

The most common and easiest way of donating to Suffield Academy is through an outright charitable contribution. If you itemize your income tax deductions on your return, you receive a tax deduction for the full value of your gift. A Current Will or Trust

The idea of drafting a will or living trust can be unpleasant. Decisions must be made for a future we do not hope for. Yet a sense of security can be gained by the knowledge that a will can help you achieve your goals according to your wishes. A bequest from a will or trust allows you to leave the amount you want to Suffield free from estate taxes. You can give cash, specific property, or a percentage of your estate, with restrictions or without. If you are thinking of naming Suffield Academy as a beneficiary in your will, we suggest that you seek the counsel of an Atty. who specializes in estate planning. Life Insurance

Often a life insurance policy that was once vital to a family’s security becomes less important as time passes. The amount of coverage may be more than you need today, and yet you still own the policy. You can receive a tax deduction by naming Suffield Academy the beneficiary and reduce your estate taxes because the proceeds are removed from your estate. Real Estate and Retained Life Estate

The donation of either a primary or vacation home (full ownership or partial interest) can have wonderful tax advantages for the donor. What many people do not know is that they can give the home now, achieving the tax benefits, while continuing to live in or use the residence. This option also acts to reduce estate taxes. Retirement Plan Assets

Retirement plan assets are often taxed twice. Assets remaining in retirement plans funded with pre-tax dollars are considered income after you have passed away. These assets are subject to both estate taxes and income taxes. When other avenues are available for the provision of loved ones, a charitable contribution of retirement assets can be beneficial. Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust

Consider a charitable remainder annuity trust if you are interested in a fixed yield from your investments in the stock and bond markets and want to avoid capital gains tax. The income payments are fixed, based on the starting valuation. After your lifetime and the lifetime of the survivor beneficiary (if you have one named), the remainder of the trust is made available to Suffield Academy. Charitable Remainder Unitrust

A charitable remainder unitrust is like a combination of a gift and an investment plan. Once you place the assets in trust, you receive lifetime income from them. At the end of your lifetime, the remainder of the trust is made available to Suffield Academy. The amount you receive from a unitrust as income is a set percentage of the value of the trust assets, reassessed annually. There are five variations of unitrusts to meet individual needs.
