Each June, we transition from celebrating the close of the school year to welcoming the return of our alumni. We enjoy rolling out the red carpet for Kiski Boys from all eras.


A BOLD STEP FORWARD LIKE ALL HEADMASTERS,I frequently think about what our school was, what it is, and what it will become. During those reflections, it’s always clear that there are certain immutable elements that define Kiski: being a school for boys, with superior academic and athletic programs, focused on developing each student’s potential, leadership skills, and strength of character. We sustain these fundamental aims through formal programs, but they also find form organically based on how Kiski is configured and the principles to which we subscribe. One of the most important parts of that structure is the composition of our student body. Legendary headmaster, Jack Pidgeon, often referred to Kiski as a “blue collar prep school.” The first time I heard that phrase, I knew exactly what Mr. Pidgeon meant. He was no fan of elitism, especially when practiced by the young men in his care. One of Mr. Pidgeon’s favorite metaphors was Kiski as a rock polisher, a cylindrical device into which stones are placed and, as it’s turned around and around, they smooth each other’s rough

surfaces. In real life, this meant ensuring that Kiski served a broad range of families from the socio-economic spectrum. As boys from all different backgrounds encountered each other and learned from each other, they all emerged as better, stronger people. We’ve remained faithful to Mr. Pidgeon’s vision, although it’s become more and more challenging to do so with the hyper-inflation of tuition prices at all boarding schools over time. When I arrived at Kiski in 1990 as a rookie teacher, tuition was $12,800. When I became Kiski’s headmaster in 2002, tuition was $26,250. This year, our tuition is $61,300. That’s an increase of almost 500% compared to 1990. Over that same period, medical insurance rose by around 250% and the consumer price index went up a little less than 100%. To be clear, Kiski’s tuition and price increases are exactly average compared to our 250 boarding school peers according to data from the National Association of Independent Schools. But invoking an argument of “relativism” does nothing to address the problem. In order to maintain a student body

LETTER FROM THE HEADMASTER

representing all economic strata, our need-based financial aid spending has grown dramatically over time. Just ten years ago, 44% of our families received aid. This year, that number stands at 73%. In order to compensate for the increased aid need, boarding schools, and private colleges too, have adopted the practice of increasing annual tuition by a rate that’s a multiple of normal inflation. Compounded over time, the discount on “sticker price” tuition has grown larger and larger as schools have gotten swept up in this industry-driven trend. Simply stated, we said, “enough is enough” and decided it was time for a dramatic change. And so, in early October, Kiski took a bold step forward by announcing a “tuition reset” for next year, which will lower our tuition price to $48,500, 20% less than the national average. Coupled with our ongoing commitment to needbased assistance, this initiative promises better affordability for our families and a more straight-forward approach to our pricing. The reset will be financed, in part, by growing enrollment by around ten

While this won’t have a measurable impact on average class size or student-teacher ratio, it will allow us to reach our optimal carrying-capacity. We’ll also be counting on continued support for scholarship funding, thanks to the generosity of our loyal alumni and friends, in order to make a smooth transition to our new and more sustainable model. Our lower tuition means that every dollar we raise for tuition assistance will have an even bigger impact moving forward. The response to our tuition reset announcement last month has been overwhelmingly positive. It’s affirmation that you want us to maintain our commitment to making a Kiski education within reach to students from all economic backgrounds. And that’s what we intend to do. How can you help? By continuing to send us great boys of promise and potential. Each year, nearly 50% of the young men who enroll come from referrals made by alumni and past and current parents.

To be sure, all of the “immutable elements” of a Kiski education outlined in this letter’s preamble will remain unchanged and solid as ever, if not strengthened by our renewed commitment to tuition affordability. As we build on the strong momentum generated over the past several years, we can take great comfort knowing that Kiski’s future is very bright.

HONORS CONVOCATION

The Kiski Honors Convocation, held in the Rogers Fine Arts Center, honored the distinguished academic accomplishments of underclassmen during Kiski’s 131st school year. The ceremony re-enacts an old academic tradition, the conferring of honor to scholars. Although students are asked to participate in many activities beyond the classroom, they must never lose sight of the primary objective of the School, and that is scholarship. Honors Convocation is one of Kiski’s grandest traditions. Mr. Andrew Muffley, who retired after 33 years of service at the close of Mr. Muffley Presents: the school year, delivered the keynote You Know You’re a Kiski Boy If... remarks. His main theme addressed the civic responsibilities fostered at Kiski. He You’ve been rousted out of bed spoke of the importance of leadership, by a certain security guard. volunteerism, civility, and hard work.

SENIOR BANQUET AWARDS CEREMONY

Each year, the seniors are celebrated the evening before their graduation during a banquet and awards ceremony. Families and faculty join the class to honor superlative achievements before the boys are dismissed to enjoy their last night together on campus. Ryan Brett ’19 introduced his father, Mr. David Brett ’81, for the parent remarks. David, the son of legendary faculty member Mr. Clifford Brett, began by recounting that his ‘faculty-brat’ childhood was like growing up with “a 300-acre backyard.” He went on to describe, “probably the greatest aspect of growing up here was that I never learned to judge a person by his or her race or religion. Students from all ethnic backgrounds and from all corners of the world have always been accepted and welcomed here.” From his perspective as a Kiski parent, David reflected that “Kiski with its small classes and boy-centric teaching has been the perfect fit for our son.” He also told of a lesson he learned through four years of hosting boys for off-campus meals as a Kiski parent, that, “these boys can eat!” A round of laughter voiced unanimous agreement. In a nod to the evening’s faculty speaker, he shared the answer to a future trivia question: that the soon-to-be retired Mr. Doug Yoder’s first graduating class was his, and his last class would include his son, Ryan. Mr. Yoder’s remarks centered on the connection between experience and education. He encouraged the boys to “become collectors of experiences.” He explained that, “there will be none that you don’t learn from. Therefore, there will be no bad ones.” His challenge for the graduates was to, “Try to make some of your future experiences adventurous and perhaps a little dangerous, ones that scare the daylights out of you, or make you change your underwear.” After the seniors collected their awards, Headmaster Chris Brueningsen picked up where Mr. Yoder finished in saying, “You can actually collect experiences, as Mr. Yoder said, while thinking it through at the same time. These are not inconsistent messages.” He expanded on that concept explaining that, “In your time here you had a chance to practice habits and good decision making. You’ve been faced with challenges and made some mistakes but you’ve learned from them.” After recounting a story when he hadn’t ‘thought it through’ as a teenager, he shared his request that, “As you embark on your college career I’d like to ask a favor: anytime you’re in a situation when you’re thinking, ‘maybe this isn’t a great idea’ or asking, ‘am I trying

to convince myself that this bad idea is a good idea,’ I’d like you to hear my voice in your head saying, ‘have you thought this through?’” Only time will tell which voice the boys hear louder, Mr. Yoder’s telling them to, “go touch a hot stove,” or Mr. Brueningsen’s calling for additional thought before learning through that experience. The group was treated to a compilation of the seniors’ baby photos contrasted with their Kiski yearbook portraits (some to uproarious laughter) before the seniors were dismissed for the evening with “study hall starts in 15 minutes.” CONGRATULATIONS 2019 AWARD RECIPIENTS Carl L.

KISKI’S 131ST COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY

A picturesque commencement ceremony was hosted in the Yukevich Quadrangle. To begin, the chatter of guests eagerly anticipating the event was calmed by the chime of the Paradise Hall bell. As tradition dictates, it sounds once for each graduate before bagpipes escort the proccessing faculty and boys to their seats. After an honorary diploma was awarded to Mr. Paul G. Benedum Jr., the Cum Laude speaker Aidan Gillespie ’19 recounted the exceptional people that surrounded him at Kiski. He talked about how each enriched the Kiski community by including thoughts on many of his classmates, and one of our security

guards, Mr. Tony Veltri. He concluded that the journey and those friends helped him to discover what made him a remarkable part of Kiski. “The Kiski transformation is the journey that we all take to find connectedness at the end,” he said. After each Kiski Boy left the dais with his diploma, Head Prefect Ben Crewe ’19 offered valedictory remarks that retraced his own Kiski journey. He spoke of his desire to play boarding school hockey, and his self-awareness regarding needing help translating his gifts for test taking into greater success in the classroom. He recalled a path that started in East Atlanta, and that will continue at Princeton University. He shared the

credit of his graduation with the boys that have been there for him during some of his most difficult days declaring, “brotherhood isn’t an idea here at Kiski, it’s a reality.” The bagpipes sounded once again, leading the boys to a sidewalk lined on each side by the Kiski faculty. A flurry of handshakes, hugs and some tears preceded their retreat to the graduation reception. Soon the campus was quiet as the last Kiski Boys exited with their families. We hope they return often and keep Kiski close to their hearts no matter how far their journeys lead them from Saltsburg, PA.

YOUR COUGARS

WINTER 2018-19 SPORTS // HOCKEY The Varsity Hockey team had another successful season, garnering the Interscholastic Hockey League Championship for the fourth straight year, the Cleveland Rock N’ Roll Classic for the third straight year, and the Academy of the New Church Tournament for the fourth straight year. The players were also proud to finish third in the St. Andrew’s College Tournament in Aurora, Ontario. “It was a very competitive tournament,” explained 10-year Head Coach Chris Spahn, “and the kids played very hard, especially the goalies, especially our goalies William Gillis (’19), Ben Crewe (’19), and Patrick Jacob (’20). They were unreal!” Aside from tournament wins, there were many moments of individual player success. “I think the best memories were some of our players scoring their first goals of their Kiski careers,” recalled Assistant Coach Mark Novom. Moments like these inspired the players to work together and put in the extra effort. “As a player, your mentality is always to try to be the best, and to work hard to become better,” insisted Chris Kendall ’22, who won this season’s Most Improved Player Award. “I honestly couldn’t have worked harder with a great group of guys who make you laugh and teach you new strategies.” 14

// SWIMMING The Varsity Swimming program saw some improvement this year, and a lot of heart. Assistant Coach Jason Jennings insisted that winning the Independent Private School League for the first time since 2002 encapsulates their season. Going into the Championships, he and Head Coach Josh Sunday made the boys aware that their best times from the season would put them within reach of the title compared to the other schools’ best times. “We let the boys know this the night before the competition in hopes of pumping them up,” explained Jennings. It worked. “The team exceeded all expectations, swimming great times and winning by a landslide!” The upperclassmen like US Naval Academy Foundation student and Coach’s Award recipient Christopher Bonham ’19 provided great leadership. “Chris showed up to practice every day with the sole intention of getting better,” recalled Jennings. “He set a number of goals at the beginning of the season and worked very hard to achieve them. Chris exuded positivity, held his other teammates accountable, and did whatever the team asked of him.” www.kiski.org

"We anticipate that this season will propel Kiski into the conversation with other elite prep school programs.”

The Varsity Basketball team finished the year with an even 12-12 record. They started out the season with a huge victory over the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey, and took third place at the Peddie School Tournament, defeating Hun School and Lake Forest Academy. After two previous losses to the International Sports Academy (ISA), the Cougars defeated them in overtime in front of an outstanding Kiski crowd. “Our biggest highlight of the year was over a stretch of four games,” insisted Head Coach Damien Williams. “We defeated Scotland Campus in overtime after Xavier Lyons (’20) made the game-tying shot to get us there. Next, we defeated rival First Love Christian, then followed it up with a decisive victory over rival Western Reserve Academy. We rounded out the stretch with a win over Mercersburg for the Centennial Cup.” Williams knows that the support of the Kiski community is always a big factor. “In our two overtime games with ISA and Scotland our crowd was the difference-maker. We held the lead almost the entire game against ISA and they fought back, but our crowd kept cheering us on.” Asa Klimchock ’19 was named Most Valuable Player. “He was able to make plays not for himself, but for his teammates,” recalled Williams. Klimchock led the team in scoring and assists. Brennen Crawford ’19 and Micah Tillman ’20 shared Coach’s Award honors this year. “They kept our team together,” Williams insisted. “They were an extension of me and their leadership was superb all year.” THE KISKI SCHOOL BULLETIN

Head Coach Joe Ross saw promise and a lot to be proud of. “This is one of the best teams I’ve coached because of the enthusiasm generated in the room,” Ross asserted. “It reminds me of my first season as a coach.” Ross sees this enthusiasm as a defining factor for this team. “I remember one day in particular,” recalled Ross, “when we had a really tough practice and some of the kids broke, but we had 100% attendance the next day. It just showed me that these kids had the grit to grind us forward.” The hard work paid off and it showed in the results. Kiski dropped an early season dual meet at Western Reserve Academy (WRA) (24-39). There may be no clearer indicator of their progress than a narrow and extremely satisfying 40-39 win over WRA later in the season. The Cougars also captured a big overall victory in in the Zeigler Quad meet hosted by Kiski in February. Individually, Alan Diaz ’21 qualified for Nationals. With Diaz’s leadership next year and lots of rising talent, the future of Kiski wrestling looks bright. “This season felt like a new starting point,” says Ross. “We anticipate that this season will propel Kiski into the conversation with other elite prep school programs.” Ross plans to continue off-season training and noted more dual meets will be on the 2020 schedule including an increase in matches against local competition. He also plans to add a freestyle program. They will have an exemplary role model guiding their progress. Coach Ross received the Pennsylvania Independent Schools 2019 Jeff Jacobs Sportsmanship Award. “He has always conducted himself in a professional manner on the mat and taught those principles to the thousands of wrestlers he has trained and coached over the past 29 years,” boasted son and former Cougar grappler Frank Ross ’02. 15

"Every boy embraced his role, more than any other season in my nine years of coaching baseball.” —Baseball Head Coach, Marcus Muster

SPORTS // BASEBALL

The Varsity Baseball team’s confidence could have been shaken by a lackluster early season stretch. Their seniors kept them focused and instead of faltering Kiski caught fire as the season continued, closing with a doubleheader sweep of rival Hawken. “After those wins, we all wanted to play next week,” remembered Head Coach Marcus Muster. “Cole Reibenspies (’19) set a great tone for the boys leading by example and demanding the same level of focus from his teammates,” said Muster. “Every boy embraced his role, more than any other season in my nine years of coaching baseball.” When Kiski needed a pitcher for a rescheduled game Brayant Garcia ’19, known best for his role as the play-byplay ‘voice of the Cougars’ on the team video stream, stepped up in a big way. He held Ohio Division 3 powerhouse West Branch to four hits and two runs over five and a third innings. “He absolutely stifled them with his quirky off-speed approach,” recounted Assistant Coach Gino Colella. “What Brayant lacks in size or pure talent, he possesses in determination and resilience.” The returning boys are looking forward to a rare opportunity to play in the state tournament this spring. 16

// TRACK AND FIELD The first season for Head Coach Damien Williams concluded with 13 student-athletes qualifying for the state meet. Jaylen Cooper ’19 won the shot put in each meet before finishing 4th in the championship. Cooper ended the season fifth on the Kiski all-time best shotput throw list. The Cougars fared well in the dual meet season, highlighted by winning two out of three competitions against Saltsburg and United. They celebrated many personal bests as the season progressed. “Our boys competed strongly in each invitational. Probably the biggest surprise was seeing how well the boys competed in our first dual meet. The majority of the boys were new to track and field. We swept the throwing, jumping, and sprint events,” recalled Williams. The future is bright for the Cougars with 9 of 13 state qualifiers returning this season. They will be joined by new recruits who will make the program even stronger in 2020. www.kiski.org

// LACROSSE The Varsity Lacrosse team applied their Kiski grit to complete another strong season. “We had so many injuries and the kids kept playing hard. We never had the starting lineup that we envisioned when we put this team together, but the boys never backed down from a challenge,” recounted Head Coach Chris Spahn. Spahn crafted another schedule loaded with premium competition. “Our kids played as a team, which resulted in some great victories,” recalled Spahn. Counted among their 14 wins were victories over rival private schools Mercersburg, Shady Side, Western Reserve, and University School; and public juggernauts Upper St. Clair, Mt. Lebanon and Bethel Park. The team’s perseverance helped them to qualify for the A-bracket in the Midwest Scholastic Lacrosse Coaches Association Tournament where they ended their season facing off against other regional titans. Seven boys were named to All-Midwest teams. Dylan Colon ’21, Josh Rosa ’20 and Wes Wheat ’20 received honorable mention credit. Caleb Commandant ’20 was named to the second team. Jacob Rosa ’19, Olayinka Jimba ’19 and Christian Spahn ’20 made the first team. Christian Spahn also made the Midwest Lacrosse Challenge first team while Jacob Rosa, Jordan Ackie, and Caleb Commandant received honorable mention credit.

2019 Year in Review

The Varsity Tennis program celebrated bright spots throughout the season. They were tested early by a challenging Hawken Tournament field. “This is the best we’ve ever placed as a team in this tournament and our very own Addie Schapiro (’20) won 3rd place in the #1 singles, and the tournament sportsmanship award. This is the second year in a row Kiski has taken home this award,” reflected Head Coach Colin McGuire. McGuire also highlighted Kiski’s reputation among its peers. “Every coach at the tournament made a point to tell me how impressed they were by the level of respect, sportsmanship, and professionalism they saw from all of our boys,” he stated. The team tallied wins against McDowell High School (PA) twice, The Linsly School (WV) and Indiana (PA).

// FALL 2019 UPDATE Our fall sports will be fully summarized within our next issue, but they are off to a strong start so far. Football began with two big victories over St. James School and Western Reserve Academy. The Cougars had to overcome early deficits in both games. Kiski Soccer started its season with a training trip to Wilmington, NC and then enjoyed a great start to the season that included a 2-1 Centennial Cup victory over rival Mercersburg. There are many young runners who competed in their first-ever races on the Cross Country roster. Fortunately, there is a group of experienced seniors leading the way. Head Coach Mark Orsatti and the golfers had an excellent start to their season highlighted by a 41-stroke Centennial Cup victory over Mercersburg.

Kiski Boys are challenged to consider their career paths and the skills that will help them advance in life. While these conversations may be ongoing with dorm parents, advisors, or college counselors, there are also specific events that focus on their preparedness. MOCK INTERVIEWS: The Ethics and Personal Development faculty invite members of the community to act as interviewers for fictitious summer jobs for the Men and Society classes. The boys craft resumes and cover letters that they review with the guest interviewers. They also receive priceless advice regarding their interviewing skills. The overall theme is that interviewers are often looking for even minor cover letter errors to help them sort through mountains of applications. Written materials must be proofed extensively, and interviewees must practice until they are comfortable with delicate conversations that could open doors to even greater opportunities.

BROADENING HORIZONS A Generous Gift Allows Kiski Boys to Explore Robotics in Singapore

By Mark Novom | Associate Headmaster

THIS NOVEMBER,two Kiski Boys will travel to Singapore to attend the second annual “The Robot of the Year” conference. The conference finds and funds the top ethical artificial intelligence and robotics innovations in the world. Our boys will join top scientists, business leaders, entrepreneurs, developers, sociologists, philosophers, and regulators from some of the most important brands and entities across the world. In order to be considered to attend the conference, students were asked to submit an essay on ethical issues related to advances in artificial intelligence and advanced robotics. A distinguished international panel of renowned experts made the final selections. Seniors JP Suozzi and Grant Lumley were chosen to represent Kiski. “As soon as I saw there was a trip to Singapore, I got so excited! Coming to Kiski has been a life-changing experience and while I am here I want to take advantage of all the opportunities that are available for me,” shared an elated Lumley. “I have always been fascinated by robotics and artificial intelligence. Artificial intelligence is the future. Everything in the future will be run by AI,” added Suozzi. The trip is being funded by Kiski Trustee Mr. James P. Moore Jr. ’71 and Mr. Carlos B. Rosales Jr. Moore founded The Washington Institute for Business, Government and Society in 2018. The nonprofit—that addresses the intersection 22

of business, government and society—became a global partner of “The Robot of the Year” conference after the first competition was held last year. “The Washington Institute is committed to engaging the next generation of leaders to whom we will pass on the legacy we are creating today. To that end, we are delighted to have entered into a collaboration in the field of ethical artificial intelligence that is growing in its influence and command of the global economy,” said Moore. “As a Kiski alumnus and having sat on Kiski’s board for almost 40 years, I am thrilled to help advance the kind of school Kiski has become. In this case, the opportunity to showcase Kiski on an international stage allows me to help point to the extraordinary advancements the School is making in a field like artificial intelligence, and to put a spotlight on two young men who are showing their potential to become leaders of the future, making their families and their School very proud,” Moore continued. A recap of the trip will be shared via Kiski’s social media outlets.

YEAR ROUND!


The Life-Changing Kiski Experience Continues, at a More Affordable Tuition Price Kiski to set a Boarding School Trend with New Tuition Model EACH YEAR,more families considering a private school education for their children have been priced out of the option.Boarding school tuition has far outpaced the increase in median household income. In order to reverse this trend, boarding schools must prioritize affordability. By becoming the first in the country to adopt an innovative new pricing model, we did just that. This fall, we announced that our 2020–21 tuition will be “reset” to $48,500, significantly lower than our current rate of $61,300. Your support has allowed us to make this transition from a position of strength. A Kiski education will become attainable for a broader group of deserving boys while our timehonored, boy-centric traditions will remain unchanged. This list of questions and answers will offer insight into the factors that influenced our break from the industrydriven pricing model. Please, share this exciting news with potential Kiski families. We trust that you know Kiski Boys when you see them, and you can let their families know that affordability is listed among our finest qualities.

24


AFFORDABLE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What motivated the reduction in tuition price?

How will the tuition reset benefit new Kiski families?

Over the past decade, the average tuition at boarding schools has increased by 50% while household incomes have barely budged. Without question, private school costs have spiraled out of control, becoming prohibitively expensive for most families. Simply put, we decided it was time for a change.

Next year, Kiski’s tuition will be 20% lower than the average price to attend other boarding schools. Our new tuition structure coupled with our ongoing commitment to need-based assistance promises real affordability for our families and more transparency in our pricing.

How is Kiski able to make a tuition reset work financially? We are shifting toward a philanthropy-centered model that will be financed by our recently-completed $35 million capital campaign together with ongoing fundraising efforts for endowed and operational scholarship support. At our new highly-competitive price, we expect a modest increase in enrollment, which will offset some of the income we will forfeit by reducing our tuition.

Will Kiski continue to offer needbased tuition assistance? Yes. Kiski will continue to provide need-based aid totaling nearly $4 million per year, making a Kiski education possible for even more students. Currently, 73% of our families receive tuition assistance. What matters most is finding the right amount of assistance to make the net cost affordable for each family.

What benefit will the tuition reset have for current Kiski families receiving financial assistance? Families paying less than $48,500 this year will pay, on average, $1,000 less for 2020-21. Families paying more than $48,500 for 2019-20 will save the difference between their current cost and $48,500 for 2020-21. All returning families will realize additional savings since without the tuition reset, costs would have been subject to a standard annual increase of around 3%.

Will any elements of a Kiski education change as a result of the tuition reset? No. All of the high-quality elements that distinguish a Kiski education—outstanding academics, superior college placements, small class sizes, boy-centric teaching methods, robust athletic programs, leadership development, and exceptional facilities—will remain as strong as they’ve been in the past. The only thing that’s changing is an industry-driven pricing model that we are determined to make obsolete.

What will happen to tuition beyond 2020-21?

2020–21 tuition will be “reset” to $48,500, significantly lower than our current rate of $61,300

Over the past decade, average annual tuition increases at boarding schools have outstripped inflation by a factor of two or three. Moving forward, Kiski is committed to scheduling tuition increases at a rate that more closely matches normal inflation.

Sustained Momentum for Kiski By Steven T. Szilagyi ’88 | Associate Headmaster for Institutional Advancement THE $35 MILLION IN SUPPORT RAISED during the successfully completed Leadership for the 21st Century: A New Campaign for Kiski, fueled sweeping changes to Kiski’s facilities. The generosity shown by the Kiski community during this transformative phase also significantly bolstered our endowment. The next period of our philanthropic focus will build on that momentum, further positioning our School to thrive for generations. Kiski will count, recognize, and pursue estaterelated gifts, such as documented bequest commitments and other planned gifts, with greater emphasis. Donors who have expressed intentions for planned gifts have already been enshrined as members of the Tower Society—named for the bell tower that remains on campus from one of the first two structures that comprised the original Kiskiminetas Springs School in 1888. The tower is a symbol of Kiski’s enduring core

values. Members of the Tower Society seek to maintain those tenets by making Kiski the beneficiary of a bequest provision in a will or trust, a designation of retirement or insurance benefits, a life-income gift or other planned gift. Through the individualized process of estate planning, every member of the Kiski community has an opportunity to further steward the life-changing Kiski experience for future Kiski Boys with legacy gifts to endowment. If you have been considering including Kiski in your long-term financial plans, now is the time to act. You will notice that there are members of the Tower Society from all eras of Kiski alumni. It is never too soon to include Kiski in your plans. We are eager to assist you with leaving an enduring legacy at Kiski. If you would like to learn more about your options to secure Kiski’s future, I can be reached at 724-639-8029 or steven.szilagyi@kiski.org.

Every member of the Kiski community has an opportunity to further steward the lifechanging Kiskiexperience for future Kiski Boys with legacy gifts to endowment.

Faculty Room Honors Kiski Champion Sandra S. Mellon IN 2012, KISKI EMBARKED ON A PLAN TO RAISE $12 MILLIONto accomplish ambitious objectives outlined within our fundraising drive, Leadership for the 21st Century: A New Campaign for Kiski. The scope of the vision included the continuation of sweeping upgrades to campus facilities, and expanding available financial aid. Successful completion of the campaign would strengthen Kiski’s foundation and maintain its position as a leader in boy-centric education. With those high stakes in mind, Sandra S. Mellon was asked to serve as the Honorary Campaign Chair. Mrs. Mellon’s experience as a member of multiple non-profit boards coupled with her unique perspective as a parent and grandparent of Kiski Boys made her the ideal candidate for the leadership role. It is perhaps no surprise that the campaign closed with $35 million in transformational funding, nearly three times the initial goal. Mrs. Mellon has been a longtime advocate for Kiski. Her resolute guidance and generosity were recently commemorated by the naming of the Sandra S. Mellon Faculty Workroom. That honor was made possible by a generous gift made in Mrs. Mellon’s name by Trustee Emeritus Russell Swank ’67 and current Trustee Ellen Swank. “We thoroughly enjoy our friendship with Sandy and admire her THE KISKI SCHOOL BULLETIN

steadfast support of Kiski. The faculty workroom is a fitting tribute to her, as well as the dedication of the Kiski faculty,” shared the Swanks. The handsomely renovated space answered a need within Kiski’s main classroom building, Heath Hall. For the first time, there is an area dedicated to teachers in that building. “The new faculty workroom is beautiful. It has been thoughtfully designed to invigorate collaboration by providing a quiet and comfortable space for our faculty to work together as they lay out their lessons. The Sandra S. Mellon Faculty Workroom will attract teachers for a quick check-in with colleagues or a lengthy session of enriching cross-curricular planning,” reflected Dean of Faculty, Brad Kwiatek. “The dedication is a great tribute to a

driving force behind Kiski’s success. It’s very appropriate that the new workroom named for Mrs. Mellon supports the backbone of a Kiski education, our faculty,” reflected Headmaster Chris Brueningsen. “We are grateful for her support and the Swanks’ generous sponsorship of this project,” he concluded.

KISKI LUMINARY

LEE CRAWFORD ’66 By Beth Crawford

(1947–2018)

Lee’s wife of 50 years and longtime Kiski faculty member

When we consider our favorite subject in high school or our best academic experience, no one remembers their favorite textbook. It is the teacher we remember. It is the teacher that makes the difference. The knowledge the teacher brings of his or her subject along with the driving desire to share this information can shape the life of a student forever. Excellent teaching is an art. It takes years of dedicated practice, fine-tuning, and growth through error by the practitioner to achieve excellence. Hours of preparation mixed with some boldness, pedagogical talent, knowledge, and dedication come together to produce an outstanding teacher. At Kiski we have enjoyed the blessings of many superb teachers over the years. This section of the Bulletin is dedicated to honoring excellent Kiski teachers, our Luminaries. In this space, we remember teachers who shared their brilliance and enlightened generations of Kiski Boys.

LEE CRAWFORD ’66 WAS PART OF A KISKI FAMILY t hat spanned four generations. He was the son of Raymond Crawford ’31, father of Amy Perry ’87 and Christian Crawford ’90, father-in-law of Christian Perry ’85, and grandfather of Tanner Perry ’16. He was a loving grandfather to Natalie and a husband of 50 years to Beth. After graduating from Kiski, Lee attended Ohio Northern University, graduating in 1970 with a B.A. in English. He had considered going on to law school, but the Vietnam conflict draft altered his plans. Blessedly, Lee’s number was 296. Despite the unlikely chance that he would be called to serve, Lee began a teaching career at a small, rural high school in northwestern Ohio where the most important question during the interview from the principal was, “do you like poetry?” Fortunately, he

did. He taught multiple academic levels, where he unwittingly challenged local thinking by handing college-bound seniors “Catcher in the Rye,” by J.D. Salinger, and discussing the Vietnam conflict. It was here that he learned to “pick his battles.” Great teaching and high standards came naturally and Lee fell in love with the craft. After a year of teaching and coaching, his former Kiski baseball coach and history teacher, Bob Johnston ’51, called to ask if he would come to Durham, NC to teach, coach and be an administrator at Durham Academy. He earned his Masters in Counseling while in Durham. After six years, Lee moved with Johnston to teach at the University School of Milwaukee for a year. Throughout these years, Lee regularly talked about his desire to work at Kiski. This became an option with a call from Jack Pidgeon and Reno DiOrio ’59 in 1977. In 1978, Lee began a 23-year career teaching freshmen and later seniors. He coached the golf team and the varsity baseball team. As an administrator he served as Kiski’s Director of Admissions, and later the Assistant Headmaster and English Department Chair. He loved these roles, and always brought the very best of himself to his work. It was said by a peer, that Lee was the moral compass for the students, faculty, and staff. He led by example, going about his daily life with honesty, trustworthiness, kindness, and high expectations for himself and others. Lee was an adventurer and lifelong learner. In 1993, Lee was granted a sabbatical to bicycle across the country to enhance the American literature he so enthusiastically taught. He and son Christian pedaled from San Juan, Washington to Biddeford Pool, Maine, traversing the America of John Steinbeck, Willa Cather, Sinclair Lewis and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Lee and

Christian were “self-contained.” They followed maps, made bike repairs, slept in a tent, and experienced one of the wettest summers on record. Despite that, they proclaimed it the “adventure of a lifetime.” The trip and his daily journaling added so much to Lee’s life and his classroom gifts. There were additional biking adventures: a trip to England and Scotland with the whole family, trips to Ireland and the Northwest with Beth. All of which provided wonderful lasting memories, and none of which involved cell phones! His children introduced him to skiing in his 40’s. He loved it. Kayaking off the coast of Maine with the family was thrilling. We, his family, are so grateful that he did all these things while he could. One of Lee’s many gifts was his desire to broaden the thinking of his students. He urged them to open their minds, occasionally calling upon Mrs. Crawford to bring the feminist perspective, much to their dismay. He worked to soften their youthful cynicism, to guide them to question and think critically, make informed decisions and assessments, and appreciate literature of all kinds. He used a variety of teaching methods to accomplish his goals, from taking his pet bunny, Sydney, into the classroom and using Simon & Garfunkel to introduce poetry. He even invited a class to his home to watch Field of Dreams, which caused a group of tough old seniors to leave the house in emotional silence. There was always support for his students, an appreciation of their gifts and their genuine efforts. Each year while vacationing on the coast of Maine, Lee would write postcards to each student who would be in his English class that fall. Each card spoke of summer’s joys as well as a gentle reminder to complete the THE KISKI SCHOOL BULLETIN

summer reading. Lee was a man students, nay, everyone could count on. During his entire career, Lee’s first love and focus was on his family. Through Lee’s example and expectations, he set standards for his children which they follow today, and which they look for in others. His sense of humor can be found in both children, as well as his grandchildren, Tanner and Natalie. While Christian was a student at Kiski, he played on the golf team coached by his dad. Lee had taught Christian the game and they loved playing together. Amy took a PG year at Kiski and was the manager of her Dad’s varsity baseball team, a season they both treasured.

Lee made countless dear, lifelong friends from his childhood through his schooling and his career. He was blessed. He knew he could always count on them and they him. Their support through good and bad times meant so very much. In addition to a legacy of family, friends, and students, Lee left a Kiski Book Club that he co-created with Head Librarian, Diana Murphy, which thrives today. He would be tickled. There is so much great literature, and so little time. The world was a better place with Lee Crawford in it. He was the finest man his family has ever known.

Richelle and Craig Nurmi welcomed Eric Scott Nurmi on April 24, 2019.

Ashley and Jonty Loukes celebrated the birth of Sunny Jon Loukes on January 22, 2019.

Faculty Plaudits George Argyros, mathematics teacher, was inducted into the Kiski Area Sports Hall of Fame for his spectacular cross country, and track and field coaching career. Although, the highlight of his day may have been seeing his oldest granddaughter, Gianna, run her first cross country race. Jen Kwiatek, College Counseling Office team member, played Rosemary Muldoon in the play “Outside Mullingar” hosted by the Apple Hill Playhouse in Delmont this past September. The 20182019 Yearbook was also dedicated to Jen Kwiatek. The Clyde Slease Teaching Prize (created by Clyde H. Slease III ’62 in appreciation for the dedicated teachers who touched his life and given to a faculty member who, in the opinion of his colleagues, has made a significant impact on the boys he teaches through creative and innovative pedagogical practices, solid knowledge of subject matter and sincere interest in his students) was awarded to Mr. Andy Muffley, an English teacher appointed to Kiski in 1986. Distinguished Service Awards were presented to Andy Muffley and Doug Yoder, a science teacher that started with Kiski in 1980, during the Senior Awards ceremony in recognition of their remarkable tenure and steadfast dedication to scholarly pursuits.

Professional Development Fine and Performing Arts teacher, Patty Argyros, attended a painting workshop this summer at the Greensburg Art Center. “I enhanced my knowledge of oils and painted landscapes and still life settings,” Argyros reported. “I have two paintings showing now in their current show and am screening two paintings for the Southern Allegheny Museum of Art.” Gino Colella, a science teacher, enrolled in Slippery Rock University where he is pursuing his Master’s Degree in Environmental Education. Our Dean of Students, Ryan John, attended a deans gathering. “We talked about best practices for combating the problem of substance (ab)use and supporting kids (ab)using - particularly through vaping - and how schools can craft policies to keep campuses as safe learning environments. We also discussed best practices regarding student tracking and off campus trips, as well as global education through exchange/ partner programs, among other things. Networking was also a huge part of the gathering as deans across schools work hard to support each other and share information for the betterment of all our schools,” summarized John.

Edcamp Foundation. Held at Clarion University, the Edcamp is a series of discussion sessions chosen, organized, and led by the teachers attending the conference. This simple approach allows teachers to ask real questions about their own teaching experiences. It also gives teachers a chance to help others as an expert in one of the many sessions available. Mr. Kwiatek attended discussions on digital lessons, standardized testing, and games in the classroom. Our Director of Library Services and Ethics and Personal Development Department Chair, Leslie Poston, recently joined the annual AccessPA and Power Library training session regarding new resources integrated in the Power Library package. She also contributed two sections to the library science education textbook Teaching Life Skills in the School Library: Career, Finance and Civil Engagement in a Changing World by Blanche Wools and Connie Hammer Williams, 2019. Poston described the career preparation unit and personal finance activities incorporated in Kiski’s Health and Men in Society curriculum. Poston also presented a workshop entitled “Real World Innovations and Project Based Learning” at the biennial Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools conference with Craig Olear, Director of Communications, and Fine and Performing Arts teacher.

Libby Sherrier, Fine and Performing Arts and English teacher, attended an educator conference hosted by the Savannah College of Art and Design in June. “I focused primarily on Industrial Design and Ceramic Surface Textures. In the design course, we practiced methods of design research that kept consumers in mind. This course was heavily research-based and included a guide with instructional resources. The ceramic texture workshop was a crash course for potters to explore some advanced surface decoration. The school offered opportunities for educators to meet each other and to speak with the professors at the school,” said Sherrier.

Sherrier also attended an Advanced Placement English Language workshop where she learned methods used by other professionals, and discussed curriculum ideas. “We spent four days at the College of William and Mary working in teams to grade essays based on the new AP scoring guidelines. While we went through the modifications to the testing layout and the preparation process, we worked with our mentor to come up with innovative lesson plans for our students. Our goal, as always, is to help students become better at close reading, clear writing, and critical thinking. We practiced in-class journaling and note-taking methods that I brought back into my classroom at Kiski,” recapped Sherrier.

Each June we transition from celebrating the close of the school year to welcoming the return of our alumni. We enjoy rolling out the red carpet for Kiski Boys from all eras. Dozens of alumni volunteers begin the outreach process early so that we can draw back a large crowd for each milestone reunion (reunions that occur each five years after graduation). That work especially paid off for the Class of 1969. They gathered a record 18 classmates to commemorate their 50th reunion. They had already tied the record of 17 set by the Class of 1962 when Jibril Abdullah ’69 arrived unexpectedly during the Saturday banquet to his classmates’ boisterous cheers.

THE CLASS OF 2014welcomed back 18 classmates and with a flurry of gifts almost hoisted the Reunion Giving Cup (awarded to the milestone class with the highest participation in The Kiski Fund by Reunion Weekend). They were held off by a triumphant Class of 1999 that nearly doubled its previous participation record to capture the Cup. Ed Miller ’49 was the “Most Experienced” alumnus to attend the weekend. Douglas So ’89 and Josh Kaufman ’69 were both recognized for traveling the farthest for the event from Vancouver, BC and Kneeland, CA, respectively.

THE WEEKEND ALSO INCLUDED unique tributes and assemblies honoring Kiski greats. The Zeigler Science Center was dedicated with a large contingent of the Zeigler family present, including all four of Winifred and Jake’s children. Tamas Szilagyi celebrated his 87th birthday during the reunion lunch. Nathan McCutcheon ’03 accepted the 2019 Distinguished Alumnus Award on behalf of his late brother Chad McCutcheon ’00. Lee Crawford ’66 was remembered by a collection of family and friends that shared memories and refreshments during a special Sunday gathering. It was a beautiful weekend in many ways. We are already counting down to the next Reunion Weekend, June 5–7, 2020. We will focus on milestone anniversaries for classes ending in 0 and 5, but—as always—all are welcomed and encouraged to join the party.

Kiski’s Alumni Leadership Class Captains and Board of Visitors Members

Our alumni leadership is strengthened by two important volunteer groups. Class Captains help Kiski to welcome the continued involvement of their classmates while keeping them up to date on all of the latest Kiski news. They frequently help the School find updated contact information for their peers and extend invitations to events to cultivate a lasting connection. It is no surprise that—due in large part to alumni leadership—Kiski has enjoyed robust event attendance from all eras and reached a record for alumni support of The Kiski Fund again last year.

The Kiski Board of Visitors includes alumni from a wide span of eras. The group meets annually to discuss important issues related to Kiski’s growth—alumni engagement, academic curriculum, admissions, school finances, fundraising and athletics. Their thoughtful feedback sharpens Kiski’s approach. Involvement in both groups positions our alumni leaders to perform as well-informed advocates for Kiski. Class Captains and Board of Visitors members have encouraged families to consider Kiski for their sons. They have also aided Kiski with the procurement of foundation and corporate fundraising support. Many of Kiski’s recent successes have been a direct result of their input and we are thankful for their service.

Please welcome our latest class leaders First Row (left to right): Ben Crewe ’19; Second Row: Benjamin Foster ’19, Griffin Donohue ’19, Brayant Garcia ’19, Associate Headmaster for Institutional Advancement Steve Szilagyi ’88; Third Row: Director of Alumni Relations & Special Gifts Officer Mark Rhodehamel, Ryan Brett ’19, Kai Wisniewski ’19; Back Row: Jaylen Cooper ’19, Jianbu Shi ’19, Daniel Ritton ’19 and Director of Annual Giving Damien Williams.

FOREVER KISKI BOYS

Kiski Welcomes New Trustees Caleb Sturges ’93 and Ted Wilkes P’18 Join Board Kiski is grateful for the guidance and support received from David Conrad ’85, David DeSimone ’93, Harry Holmes ’64 and David Osikowicz P’95, P’98. Each trustee completed his final term on June 30, 2019. They served during a period of rapid growth for Kiski, carving time out of their busy schedules to serve on committees and attend meetings. Our trustees share valuable insights that advance Kiski and our successes can be attributed to their direction and the support of the full Kiski community. Caleb Sturges ’93 and Ted Wilkes P’18 were elected to start their first terms on July 1, 2019.

Mr. Sturges is the President of Pennsylvania Drilling Company in McKees Rocks, PA, which was founded by his great-grandfather. He became president in 2013 following the retirement of his late father Tom Sturges ’63. The Sturges family has been a major Kiski benefactor for many years. Mr. Wilkes, father of Cronin Wilkes ’18, is a retired corporate executive and co-founder of Clearwater Inc., an international oil and gas field specialty chemical company with offices in Pittsburgh, Houston, Calgary, and Moscow. He and his wife, Susan, now run a non-profit group called Planet A to Z that organizes educational trips all over the world.

Alumni Gatherings

3rd Annual Kiski School Golf Tournament The third annual Kiski Golf Outing, October 15, 2018, was a huge success. The gathering was held at the Pittsburgh Field Club once again and underwritten by the Board of Trustees. With operational expenses covered, all $45,322 contributed that day benefited bright Kiski Boys in need of tuition assistance. Alumni across several decades joined with parents and corporate sponsors for the day of golf. Participants were treated to a luncheon before an individual stroke play competition commenced. Guests recounted the day over dinner and drinks following the conclusion. Headmaster Chris Brueningsen delivered a Kiski update before prizes were awarded for lowest scores and skills by Associate Headmaster for Institutional Advancement, Mr. Steven T. Szilagyi ’88.

ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME We are excited to announce the seventh class of Kiski’s young Athletic Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was established in 2013 to commemorate 125 years of athletic competition. Selecting classes from dozens of worthy nominees remains difficult. The individuals and teams listed here were selected from a wealth of deserving candidates. Kiski Football hosted The Linsly School for the Homecoming game and the 2019 Athletic Hall of Fame class was introduced to the crowd of alumni, parents, and friends during halftime of the game. Kiski Soccer hosted a weekend tournament featuring games against Lake Forest Academy, The Linsly School, and Western Reserve Academy.

CLASS OF 2019

O. MIKE VALORE ’78

MARC WEAVER ’82

Mike Valore, Class of 1978, lettered in each of his 12 athletic seasons with Kiski. He was a reliable, hard-hitting fullback and outside linebacker for the football team. As a senior, the catcher and third-basemen hit .444 for the baseball team and won the Coaches Award. He was best known for his dominance on the wrestling mat. The Bob Mathias Award winner was a two-time prep national champion in the 142-pound weight class and the first wrestler from Kiski to reach that pinnacle twice. As a junior, he boasted an unblemished 19-0 dual meet record in the 138-pound weight class. During his senior year, Mr. Valore tallied a 14–1 dual meet record in the 145-pound weight class. He went on to wrestle at the U.S. Naval Academy where he was a three-time letter winner.

Marc Weaver, Class of 1982, is remembered as perhaps the best soccer player to represent Kiski. He smashed his own record of 19 goals in a single-season by finding the back of the net 30 times during his senior year. It was during that same campaign that he set a single-game scoring record with six goals. Mr. Weaver was a two-time member of the All-State and All-League teams. He was also known as an adept leader, holding the role of captain during both his junior and senior seasons. During his junior year, the team won 11 games and the following year the Cougars set a new single season win record with 13. Mr. Weaver continued his stellar soccer career at James Madison University.

www.kiski.org


The Hall of Fame honors those alumni, teams and coaches who have made outstanding contributions to Kiski athletics. The nominees exemplify the core values they learned at Kiski: principles of integrity, humility, sportsmanship and service.

ELIGIBILITY: The nominated team or individual must be ten years removed from Kiski. Coaches, posthumous nominees, and benefactors will be inducted at the discretion of the Hall of Fame Induction Committee.

NATHAN MCCUTCHEON ’03

JOHN REGAN ’08

DOUG YODER

Nathan McCutcheon, Class of 2003, may have set more Kiski records during his time in the pool than any other Cougar in Kiski’s illustrious swimming history. At the time of his induction, Mr. McCutcheon still holds the school record for the 200-yard freestyle, pool records in the 500, 200, and 100-yard freestyle, as well as a member of the 400-yard freestyle relay record in 2002. The relay also set the league standard to pair with Mr. McCutcheon’s individual 200 and 500-yard freestyle league record that he set as a senior captain. Mr. McCutcheon had no greater victory in his time at Kiski than their 2003 IPSL victory over University School after being tied at the final relay, to come from behind and win as the anchor leg to win the Championship. Mr. McCutcheon also had many podium finishes at the prestigious Eastern Championships.

John Regan, Class of 2008, collected 12 varsity letters with four different Kiski athletic programs. He spent his first three fall seasons as a soccer player and earned a Cross Country letter as a senior captain for the Cougars. In the winter, Mr. Regan prowled the wrestling mat and was a rare four-time captain for the program. He was a County Champion twice, a threetime Prep School State Champion, and a four-time Prep School All-American. The lacrosse program benefited greatly from his scoring touch in the spring. His senior lacrosse team captured the first-ever Western Pennsylvania Lacrosse Championship. The versatile Mr. Regan advanced his wrestling career at Bucknell University where he served as a senior captain while wrestling at both the 149 and 157-pound weight classes.

Doug Yoder was a member of the Kiski faculty for four decades (1980-2019). He began his coaching duties immediately, eventually becoming the head coach for the Track and Field team in 1988 and Cross Country in 1989. Coach Yoder was famous for his own physical fitness. Many of his athletes commented on his ability to appear across multiple stops on a cross country course, or to pace and overtake runners during training. He was also known for his meticulous orchestration of complex training sessions, especially when juggling multiple track and field disciplines. Coach Yoder guided his teams to several Interstate Prep School League Championships, leading a particularly dominant track and field dynasty during the 1990’s. He led many individual athletes to their potential as measured by titles, personal bests, and lasting life lessons.

1956 VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM Head Coach Glenn “The Commissioner” Wild led the Cougars to an undefeated season in his first year at the helm using the Craig-Wild Lickety-split-T. The season began inauspiciously with a 2–0 victory over the Muskingum College freshman squad. Competing against college freshman teams was common during the early decades of Kiski football and the 1956 Kiski gridiron Boys fared well against those teams balancing routs with close victories. The highlight of the flawless slate was a 38–6 win at rival Mercersburg. Not surprisingly, the roster was littered with players that competed in the Division I level in college. PLAYERS: Jerry Abrams, Frederick Boone, Brooks Compliment, John Davenport, Kenneth Dickson, Ed Ferris Jr., Tom Flaminio, Robert Fuellhart, John Gill, John Goodley, John Goodman, Edward Gray, Craig Hadden, Steve Horn, Francis Hubner, Bruce Irvine, Bill Jones, John Kooser Jr., Terry Landis, Robert LaRue Jr., Phil Levin, Patrick Mahoney, Joe McMahon, James Miles, Gary Moore, Melvin Mumper, Harry Newman, James O’Connell, Ralph Polce Jr., Ewart Rowland, Joe Schmitt, John Shaw, Ray Tarasi, Justin Yannatta COACHES: Glenn Wild, William Craig

1974 VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM The 1974 Football team captured Kiski’s first-ever Interstate Prep School League Championship by turning in the best team performance (6–2) since the 1966 squad finished 6–0–1. A narrow high-scoring victory in the penultimate contest against University School clinched their championship. Ultimately, the Cougars shared the title with Shady Side Academy after a bittersweet loss in the finale to their rivals. The squad was known for its overpowering offense, often outpacing even the most voracious offenses with trademark Kiski grit. PLAYERS: Bernie Bercik, Mike Brunner, Dave DeSimone, Jim DiMarzio, Mike D’Itri, John Fleck Jr., Charley Foy, Tim Fruehan, Pat Gentile, Sandy Gullo, Keith Hill, John Hilton, Dan Horgan, Daniel Katulich, Randy Kilbride, Tim Kilbride, Brad King, Tracy King, Ted Leaman III, Tom Leydig, Frank Maruca, Frank Marsaln, Blane McCann, Steve McNeal, Mike Mercik, Rob Milsom III, Craig Moffett, Perry Nardi, John Newcombe, Joe Orr III, Mark Phillips, Rich Place, Mark Sapp, Frank Sedlacek, Rick Short, Rick Sikina, Louis Tsakiris, Mike Valore Jr., Ted Vincent, Tom Wehe COACHES: Reno DiOrio, Terry Depew, Thomas Kozub, John Whitehead

2008 VARSITY LACROSSE TEAM The Kiski Lacrosse program was only in its fourth varsity season when this group captured the first Western PA Lacrosse Championship. The previous year ended with a one-goal loss in the championship game, but the Cougars worked hard to return and win it all in 2008. Kiski compiled the most wins in program history with a 17–5 record that included an unblemished 15-0 Division II slate. Complementing the first title, the team also captured its first victory over a Division I team (Hampton, PA). PLAYERS: Jeremy Batchelor, Brandon Bortignon, Dru Brant, Dave Celko Jr., John Cuccaro, Kyle Davis, Manager Sara Good, Max Jablonski, Frank Kowalewski Jr., Joe Kuhn Jr., Ryan Miller, Dylan Pasco, John Regan Jr., Chris Sokoloski, Floyd Stiffler, Christian Taylor, Nik Ueker, Justin Weiss, Casey White, Karl Wilson, Derek Young COACHES: Chris Spahn, Jim Good, Jeff Mandigo, Shawn Wray 46

MASTER CRAFTSMAN ANDY SCOTT ‘85 W

ill’s Gift is named in honor of E. William Turley ’64, one of the finest educators in Kiski’s history. Although he was not an artist himself in any traditional sense of the word, his 35 years on the campus could be called nothing but a masterpiece. His devotion to his students knew no bounds and he inspired many of them to be, if not artists, then whole and true versions of themselves. His gift was his passion for inquiry, for truth, and for the guts to accept the price of such a pursuit— attributes without which no fine artist can succeed. His gift was this kind of bravery and he gave of it every day. On behalf of The Kiski School, Will’s Gift is given annually to an artist working in Western Pennsylvania. The goal is to assist with the continued health of Pittsburgh’s creative community and to increase and develop Kiski’s strong collection in the visual arts. The hope is that campus itself will become an archive and teaching center, a living and virtual gallery of the region’s finest work. “If enough small fires can light an entire community, let Will’s Gift be the fuel for one of them,” said David Conrad ’85, co-underwriter of Will’s Gift along with Kristofer Rockwell ’90. The 11th annual Will’s Gift award was given to Andy Scott ’85 during the 2019 Senior Awards ceremony. David Conrad personally introduced Mr. Scott to the audience by sharing, “I can’t think of an artist, who in this community, by the

The boys have built boats out of anything from traditional materials to plastic wrap with Mr. Scott. They’ve rebuilt engines, constructed outdoor stoves, and erected simple structures. During one of our worst snow storms, one of the boys even talked Mr. Scott into building an igloo in the quad where they spent the night sheltered from the bitter cold. He has helped Kiski Boys to master simple wood working tools and the advanced technologies available to them, like CNC routers and laser cutters. Mr. Scott has also employed his woodworking skills to assist with campus and community projects. He is an exceptional artisan and cultivator of young artistic minds.

THANK YOU Dear Friends: We are pleased to present this Report of Annual Giving, detailing Kiski’s fundraising results from July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019. The Kiski Fund closed at just over $530,000, with 10% more donors participating compared to the previous year. That amount combined with campaign contributions and other gifts resulted in a grand total of $4.8 million raised, a new record for Kiski. This unprecedented achievement is something of which we can all be very proud. While there’s no easy way to describe the value of philanthropy, we want you to know how sincerely we appreciate your ongoing commitment to our school. The work we do at Kiski is sustained through the generous support we receive from you, year after year. With your ongoing help, we will continue to offer a life-changing educational experience to all the great boys in our care. We extend a special thanks to our Class Captains and members of the Parent Committee who volunteered their time to advance our fundraising efforts. As ambassadors for Kiski, they are directly responsible for expanding our list of contributors. On the pages that follow, we gratefully recognize the generosity of all donors who have supported Kiski. As you review this report and read descriptions of the impact of your sponsorship, we hope you are reminded of one important fact: you make a difference. On behalf of everyone at Kiski who directly benefited from your kind and generous financial support, we offer our most sincere thanks. We look forward to seeing you soon and to keeping you updated on all the new initiatives that are underway on campus. With all good wishes,

THE KISKI SCIENCE TRUST In 2008, alumnus Elliott B. McConnell Jr. ’46, established The Kiski Science Trust. The Kiski Science Trust is an endowed fund to be used for teaching as well as promotion of the sciences at Kiski. The Science Trust has also been generously supported by Harry Seibel ’00, Van Messer ’69 and Mr. McConnell’s family members. The fund benefits the sciences at Kiski by providing annual cash flow to purchase state-ofthe-art scientific equipment, attain science-industry guest speakers, and explore the sciences outside of the classroom by allowing the students to attend science-related field trips.

60

Sadly, Mr. McConnell passed on August 9, 2018 but his impact on the Kiski Science program will continue. His hope was to help Kiski be nationally recognized for science education. This trust provides an example of ways in which donor support for Kiski enables the School to achieve its goals and maintain excellence in all aspects of the educational experience. If you have an area in which you would like to help The Kiski School achieve its goals of excellence, please contact Steven T. Szilagyi ’88 at 724-639-8029.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN SUPPORT Kiski is committed to regular and thorough strategic planning. To help achieve critical objectives identified in the planning process, the school embarked on a fundraising effort, Leadership for the 21st Century, in 2012. The plan outlined significant improvements and expansions of our campus facilities. The initial campaign goal of $9 million was later expanded to $31 million. Ultimately, the campaign exceeded even that goal, closing with $35 million in transformative funding. With our goal surpassed, fundraising for our Leadership for the 21st Century campaign was successfully closed in 2018. When construction for the campaign concludes, improvements will have been made to all corners of the Kiski campus. Leadership for the 21st Century also included new pledges to our Tower Society (planned gifts from donors that have designated Kiski as a beneficiary in their wills and/or estate plans), Endowed Scholarship funding, and annual operation fundraising. The financial support of our Capital Campaign has helped strengthen and sustain Kiski and its educational mission. We sincerely thank you for your generous campaign pledges and gifts:

EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT TAX CREDIT DONORS The following businesses made gifts to support the financial aid of deserving Kiski Boys and received up to 90% of their gifts in tax credits in return through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. If you or your business pays one of the several eligible PA taxes listed below, the combination of EITC tax credits and regular charitable deductions available can substantially reduce your tax liability. The funds are typically exhausted on the same day new applications are accepted (July 1, 2020 this cycle) on the EITC web site www.newpa.com/eitc. Due to the immense popularity of the EITC program, new applications that have been submitted after the first day they are accepted have been denied for the last several years.

Kiski has received over $3.2 million in financial aid through the EITC program since its inception in 2001! ELIGIBLE PA TAXES: •• Personal Income Tax (specifically if you owe the commonwealth $3,500 or more)

•• Insurance Premium Tax (excluding surplus lines, unauthorized, domestic/foreign marine)

•• Corporate Net Income Tax

•• Mutual Thrift Tax

•• Bank Shares Tax

•• Malt Beverage Tax

•• Title Insurance & Trust Company Shares Tax

•• Retaliatory Fees under section 212 of the Insurance Company Law of 1921

For information please contact Steven T. Szilagyi ’88 at 724-639-8029 or steven.szilagyi@kiski.org.

HEADMASTER’S CUP COMPETITION (Unrestricted Gifts to The Kiski Fund Only) Each year, we rely upon our fantastic Class Captains to energize and organize their classmates to come together to support Kiski. The Headmaster’s Cup provides recognition to the classes and Class Captains who have made an extraordinary effort to give back to Kiski. The awards for Most Dollars and Most Donors are given to classes contributing the largest amount and having the highest number of donors to The Kiski Fund from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. Likewise, classes have the opportunity to achieve the award for Highest Percentage of Participation in the fiscal year. This gives classes that have fewer members a chance to achieve recognition for their efforts. The Highest Percentage of Participation award is a competition for classes with at least ten active classmates. Most Dollars Overall (listed with Class Captains) 1975

GIFTS TO THE KISKI FUND BY PARENTS We would like to thank our parents for supporting The Kiski Fund while funding the education of their Kiski Boys. These gifts are seen as a strong show of confidence in Kiski, and a measure of support that foundations consider when they review our grant requests. Over the past decade, nearly $10 million has been contributed to Kiski by foundations and we are certain that parent participation in The Kiski Fund—on all levels—contributed positively to those decisions. Volunteer members of The Kiski Fund Parent Committee dedicate their time to encouraging peer participation in The Kiski Fund. Thank you for your advocacy. Fiscal Year 2018-19 Kiski Fund Parent Committee Members: Mr. Brent Jernigan ’97, Mrs. Amber Leechalk, Mrs. Abby Legaspi, Prof. Michael Legaspi, Mrs. Cheryl Pettes, Mr. Neil Pettes ’88, Dr. Stacy Skoloda, Mrs. Christina Stewart, and Mr. Eric Stewart.

WHY GIVE TO KISKI? Perhaps you are an alumnus and would like to contribute to the education of our current class of Kiski Boys, just as alumni donated to The Kiski Fund when you were a current student. Or, maybe you are a current parent whose gift will support the faculty and programs that make Kiski so special to your family. Maybe you are a “Friend of Kiski” and simply believe in the good work we are doing with boys. Regardless of your motivation to give, your gift will be greatly appreciated by the boys that receive your support.

M  YTH: I can’t give a lot, so my gift doesn’t matter. REALITY: Gifts of all sizes speak to your belief in a Kiski education. Your healthy participation has helped us to secure large foundation grants because they see your giving as a vote of confidence in Kiski. M  YTH: Kiski has raised millions of dollars in its capital campaign. They don’t need my annual giving support too. REALITY: If Kiski was your house, capital campaigns would cover nonannual expenses like putting on a new roof. The annual fund would cover recurring expenses like electric bills. Even if you need to replace the roof for the long term stability of the house, you still need to pay your electric bill. M  YTH: The annual fund supports extras the Boys don’t need. REALITY: The annual fund is built into the budget each year and covers expenses that are central to Kiski’s unparalleled experience.

“My class and I take great pride in supporting the current Kiski Boys following in our footsteps.” ROGER KISHMAN, 1962 CLASS CAPTAIN AND BOARD OF VISITORS MEMBER

“I give to Kiski because I want a life-changing education to be more accessible to families.” ANDREW BELL, 2010 CLASS CAPTAIN AND BOARD OF VISITORS MEMBER

You can make a difference today! By giving and getting involved this year, and every year, you make a difference in the lives of Kiski Boys. Your gift supports the programs and activities that define the Kiski experience.
