EYE OF THE STORM CARLTON SKINNER ’30

CARLTON SKINNER ’30 FROM THE ARCHIVES

In the two-story glass structure overlooking the academic quad of Tilton School’s campus, a wooden model of the Frigate Bird hangs from the ceiling. Known as “the king of the birds,” the Frigate Bird is a seabird that flies primarily above the Pacific Ocean. To the native people of the Pacific Islands, these birds are the symbol of intrepidity and freedom. This model of the Frigate Bird was given to alumnus Governor Carlton Skinner ’30 by Pacific Islanders as a sign of their gratitude for his contributions in Guam. Upon Skinner’s passing in 2004 at the age of 91, his wife, Dr. Solange Petit-Skinner, donated the model to Tilton School. The atrium where the Frigate Bird now hangs is Skinner Tower, named in Governor Skinner’s memory and dedicated in 2011. Skinner’s long list of accolades includes spearheading the desegregation of the United States Navy and overseeing Guam’s change from a Navy-run territory to a civilian-run government. He is regarded as the “George Washington of Guam” and is a prominent fixture in the territory’s history books. In the years since his death, Skinner’s widow, Dr. Petit-Skinner, has worked to keep his legacy alive at the place he spent his formative years, his beloved Tilton School. >>>

-DR. SOLANGE PETIT-SKINNER:

“CARLTON HAD COURAGE. WHAT HE DID DURING HIS TIME IN THE NAVY AND IN GUAM, THAT WAS COURAGEOUS. HE HAD A LOT OF INTEGRITY.”

“The model of the Frigate Bird at Tilton is one my husband had in his office. It is the only bird that takes the tremendous risk of flying into the eye of a hurricane,” Dr. Petit-Skinner says of her donation. “I think he was given this gift because Carlton was fitting to this bird. When my husband passed away, I thought it would be better for the bird to be at Tilton. For me, the bird symbolizes my husband, so it’s a little bit like Carlton is there.” Governor Skinner and his future wife met when Petit-Skinner was an anthropologist and psychologist for the South Pacific Commission. At the time, Skinner was the U.S. Senior Commissioner. The couple married in 1967. “When we first met, I noticed he had natural authority. I was impressed by that, but mostly impressed that each time he passed a motion, the motion was approved,” Dr. Petit-Skinner says of their meeting. “He was a fantastic diplomat. He was always doing things on the side of the islander to protect them from the republic in power.” While Skinner has many accolades and an impressive history, Petit-Skinner is also accomplished in her own right. She earned two doctorate degrees: one in anthropology and one in psychology from the University of Paris - Sorbonne. She also earned three master’s degrees: one in philosophy, one in psychology and one in art history; a

diploma in oceanic languages; and has received training in psychoanalysis and group dynamics. Skinner’s influence in the world around him began long before his time serving as the first military-appointed Governor of Guam. A native of Palo Alto, California, he came to Tilton School in 1925. During his time on the Hill, “Carl,” as his classmates called him, served his campus community in many ways. He was business manager of the school newspaper, class secretarytreasurer, a member of student council, manager of the hockey club, secretary of the chess club and a member of the Cum Laude Society, among other things. After Tilton, Skinner matriculated at Wesleyan University and then to University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in finance. His time at Tilton served as a launching point for his service to the world around him; and in 1984, he was awarded the Tilton School Plimpton Award for his significant contributions to society. Before World War II, Skinner was a correspondent for United Press International and The Wall Street Journal. He enlisted in the Navy as soon as the war began. In 1941, Skinner reported for duty on the USS Northland, where he served as an executive officer and was responsible for promoting crew members.

One of his most skilled motor mechanics was an African-American steward mate who wanted to be considered for the rating of Motor Machinist’s Mate 3rd Class. Skinner submitted his impressive papers to the Coast Guard headquarters. The answer he received in return was that the mate could not be rated as a Motor Mechanic because he was black. “This struck me as both unfair and inefficient and therefore undesirable for military service,” Skinner later wrote in his memoir USS Sea Cloud, IX 99, Racial Integration for Naval Efficiency. He appealed the decision and it was reversed. The man in consideration for promotion, Oliver T. Henry, a mechanic aboard the USS Northland, was promoted from Steward to Motor Machinist Mate and later went on to retire as a Chief Warrant Officer of the United States Coast Guard. This incident led Skinner to propose that ships become completely integrated. From 1943-1944, Skinner was Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander of the weather ship USS Sea Cloud in the North Atlantic. Upon taking command of the ship, and without any notice, Skinner’s proposal of integration was approved. The Coast Guard-manned USS Sea Cloud served as the federal government’s first deliberate test of desegregation aboard a U.S. ship. continues...

-DR. SOLANGE PETIT-SKINNER:

“I LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE LIVED HIS IDEA. MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE IDEA IN THEIR HEAD, AND THEN *POOF* IT’S GONE. CARLTON LIVED HIS IDEA. HE WANTED EQUALITY. HE WANTED EVERYONE TO BE RECOGNIZED ACCORDING TO THEIR MERIT.”

The Navy sent 12 African-American seamen to the ship and detached 12 White seamen from the Sea Cloud, ultimately assigning 50 African-American mates to the ship. This made it the first raciallyintegrated ship since the Civil War. Skinner then served on the USS Hoquiam in the North Pacific as Lieutenant Commander, the Navy’s second experiment in desegregation. He brought with him 30 African-American enlisted men and two lieutenants from the USS Sea Cloud. Unlike previous ships, the Sea Cloud and Hoquiam’s white and black crew members shared the same sleeping quarters and ate at the same mess tables; and for the first time in U.S. history, African-American officers broke the color barrier at officer’s clubs.2 In February of 1945, the Navy announced an official change to allow African-American mates to attend officer training school and serve on general duty assignments. “I think my experiment was helpful in producing the change,” Skinner reflected in his memoir of the experience. “With my respect for Admiral Waesche, I would assume that he used the Sea Cloud to support general improvement of racial integration in the United States.” 3 After the Navy, from 1947 to 1949, Skinner served as Public Relations Director and then as a special assistant to the United States Secretary of the Interior. After submitting a draft of the Organic Act of Guam, he was appointed the first civilian

Governor of Guam by President Harry S. Truman in 1949. The act, solidified in 1950, established Guam as an unincorporated organized territory of the United States, providing structure for a civilian government and granting its people U.S. citizenship. It also served as the closest thing to a constitution the island had seen. While overseeing the changes in Guam, Skinner established the Territorial College of Guam, now the University of Guam. Later in life, Dr. Petit-Skinner would teach at the university and create the department of social psychology. “Carlton had courage. What he did during his time in the Navy and in Guam, that was courageous. He had a lot of integrity,” Petit-Skinner remembers. “The Prime Minister of Fiji once said: ‘He is a man of conviction not of ambition,’ and it is true. I love him because he lived his idea. Many people have the idea in their head, and then *poof* it’s gone. Carlton lived his idea. He wanted equality. He wanted everyone to be recognized according to their merit.” When a student leaves Tilton School, it is hoped they will go into the world and make a difference. Skinner is a perfect example of this, and he is forever a staple of Tilton, memorialized in Skinner Tower and his numerous contributions to the school. One would think after all this time, prep school would be a distant, far-off memory in comparison to all of his amazing

achievements. Quite the contrary, actually. Dr. Petit-Skinner realized very early on in their marriage how important Tilton was to her husband. Together they established the Skinner Fellowship, a scholarship awarded to “a student or students who exhibit a consistent sense of personal integrity, loyalty, curiosity and who have demonstrated a commitment to fight injustice in all its forms.” In the 14 years since his passing, Dr. PetitSkinner has made it a point to become an advocate and champion for the school. “He loved Tilton. Many times Wesleyan sent us a paper to invite him to various things and we never went. We went only to Tilton,” Dr. Petit-Skinner recalls. “One day I asked: ‘Why don’t you want to go to Wesleyan?’ They were very full of respect for him. He said, ‘because I love my prep school!’” He loved Tilton very much. He built his personality at Tilton. The Frigate Bird loves a challenge. It rises to any occasion, is void of fear, and soars higher and faster than all other birds. For many Pacific Islanders, Governor Carlton Skinner was akin to this bird—courageous, strong and powerful, yet dignified. The Frigate Bird hanging in Skinner Tower shows appreciation for a man with endless integrity, who took his formative years at Tilton as a time to build his character and ideas.

Q: WHEN DID YOU START YOUR CAREER IN EDUCATION?

Q: I’M SENSING A THEME. DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO BE A TEACHER?

GILPATRICK: I started in 1975 as an intern in

G: No. I don’t mean to be coy, but I don’t think

alternative education at the Alternative Learning Program (ALP) for Westbrook High School in Westbrook, Maine. It was a very unstructured environment; and most of the work was not academic, rather a modicum of academic preparation so that students might be able to, at some point, take the GED.

of myself as a teacher.

Q: HOW DO YOU THINK OF YOURSELF? G: I think of myself as someone who has

skills in communication. I can speak easily and with authority. People tend to believe me when I say things. I read a great deal. I’m interested in poetry. I think it’s enjoyable to introduce ideas to kids and then do the hard work of assisting them to find clear and purposeful means of communicating that work.

We were trying, in many cases, to keep these kids out of jail. The basis of education was emotional, not academic. There’s often too much work on the brain and not enough in the heart. ALP is where I picked that up and it has stayed with me. It was completely different from the preparation my teaching degree and traditional classrooms gave me.

Q: HOW DO YOU ASSIST YOUR STUDENTS IN CONNECTING WITH THE WORK THEY ARE DOING IN CLASS?

I spent the next part of my career in both public and private schools in Maine and New Hampshire. I worked as a guidance counselor, teacher, coach and dorm parent. Most of my focus happened to be on character education. Academics wasn’t the emphasis. It was simply another activity that revealed your character.

G: We may be reading a poem and I ask: “What’s this poem got to do with you?” In order to learn it, there has to be a personal connection. You’d be surprised at the amount kids will open up and reflect upon. They write about things you would never expect. You learn a lot about what is going on in your students’ lives and minds.


I try to create an environment where kids feel valued. It’s very low pressure. I give students space to let them be who they are.

Q: HAVE YOUR STUDENTS TAUGHT YOU ANYTHING? G: Patience. I try to lead a very simple

life, but I can be extremely critical of people, especially if they’re being lazy or disruptive. I do a great deal of mental preparation for any one class. It’s not: “What am I going to teach today?” It’s “Ok, Steve. You’re going to have a group of kids walk into a classroom in five minutes and need to manage the situation in a kind, compassionate, empathetic way. If you can’t do that, nothing else is going to happen.”

Q: IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU’RE MORE ABOUT THE PERSON THAN THE ACADEMIC RIGOR. IS THAT ACCURATE? G: I have a philosophical perspective on this

as a Buddhist. My classroom is more like an encounter group than a classroom. I know what I want to do on any given day, but I don’t know if the students will let me do it. I spend a fair amount of time at the beginning of any class just processing; getting the kids with me. It’s all very fluid. I’m in a room with human beings. I try to give personal attention to them; to talk to them individually. We’re just a group of people with some things to do, and we’re going to do it together. If I have an approach to education, it’s the approach I take with myself: Try to be compassionate, try to be kind. There is a demographic of kids within the larger group that is just looking for someone or something that seems authentic or meaningful. Someone who believes in something. I try to be authentic, and a lot of kids seem to gravitate to that.

Q: WHY DID YOU BECOME A BUDDHIST? G: When I was a kid, maybe eight or nine

years old, we lived out in the countryside and I was scared of the dark. There was a door in my bedroom that went into the loft of an attached barn. I would stare at that door and wonder what was going to come through it. I dreaded going to bed at night for a long, long time. One of the ways I learned to cope with that was to pray to Jesus; protect me from whatever comes through that door. When I was about 16 or 17, I came to an understanding that my faith in Jesus was based on fear. I became interested in psychology, particularly from Arthur Janov and his Primal Scream therapy. Later, while attending the University of Maine, I went to the mental hygiene professor’s office one day and said, “I think I’m insane.” He said, “Well, so what? So be insane. If you think you’re going insane, just go.” I was trying to make sense of my brain. A few years later, a friend invited me to see a Tibetan monk speak about the mind from the Buddhist perspective: What is the mind, how does it work, and what’s the problem with it? “You mean there’s actually a whole way of approaching the mind? You can actually do something? Work with it? Train it?” Buddhism answered my questions. Christianity didn’t. Insanity didn’t. Buddhism is a mental discipline. You’re constantly observing yourself and you learn how to deal with yourself. You’re supposed to see emotions arising before they arise because once it arises, it’s going to do its thing. “How am I supposed to do that?” Well, you work at it.

JOURNEY TO THE COURT: FROM CANADA TO TILTON

THESE PROGRAMS AT TILTON HELP ME GET OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE. I FEEL LIKE I’VE GROWN SO MUCH.” -ERIC BECKETT ’19

by sarah o’neill

The country of Canada is known as the birthplace of ice hockey and is home to many talented athletes who dominate on the ice. It’s also the birthplace and home of Eric Beckett ’19, a three-year senior, promising athlete and student leader at Tilton School. A native of Ajax, Ontario, about 30 minutes east of Toronto, Beckett doesn’t score goals on the ice, but he does sink baskets on the court as a member of the Tilton School Boys’ Varsity Basketball team. You may be wondering—why the strong hockey reference in a story about an international student basketball player? Besides the obvious Canadian connection, the sport of hockey has had quite the influence on Beckett’s journey to the court. Beckett’s father, Reid, started out as a hockey player. After playing hockey for most of his adolescent life, his father transferred to a new middle school where he met Charmaine, Beckett’s mother, as well as his friend and Beckett’s future godfather. His best friend was really into basketball, so Reid ended up ditching the puck for an orange ball in order to spend more time with his new friend. Reid Beckett went on to win multiple championships with an exceptional high school team, played at the Canadian university level and then with a professional basketball league in Iceland. Eric Beckett’s middle name, Brynjar, is named for an Icelandic friend of his parents. The family history and respect for the sport is evident in the player, student and humble individual that is Eric Beckett. After finishing his sophomore year at a Canadian high school, Beckett wasn’t satisfied with how his season ended. One of his summer program coaches mentioned that schools in the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) were high caliber, not only for education but for athletics.

“I had no idea what the prep school lifestyle would be like. I went on the tours openminded and willing to see what was going to happen. I toured Tilton in October 2016 and really liked this school the most. The campus, the teachers…all the teachers I met were talking to me like I was already one of their students.” Beckett’s goal is to play at the Division 1 college level in the United States, so he knew relocating was in his future as more exposure to higher-level play is given in U.S. high schools. Although a necessary step toward achieving his dreams, it wasn’t an easy transition. When he arrived at Tilton, a new school in a new country, he was nervous and homesick. He felt a lack of confidence in this new world. As the season and school year started to progress, Beckett found his place on the court and began to feel more comfortable. His junior year, the 2017-2018 basketball season, was one of the most exciting Tilton School has ever seen. After being crowned NEPSAC Class AA Champions, the Rams moved on to the National Prep School Championship where they advanced to the semi-finals. In addition to having 10 extra games overall in the season, the end presented a test of the team’s endurance and mental toughness. Immediately after the NEPSAC tournament, they traveled to New York to play five games in six days, taking on some of the nation’s best teams. Beckett credits the unbreakable bond as a team with tackling the mental and physical challenges. “It was hard, but we all stuck together and persevered. We all knew we were hurting and tired but we wanted to win, so that’s what pushed us.” At the conclusion of the season, Beckett was named a Class AA All-NEPSAC Honorable Mention. Three days after Nationals, he, along with eight members of the Tilton Varsity Boys’

Basketball team, traveled to Japan. Exhausted from nationals and jet-lagged, the team held basketball clinics and connected with Japanese students through a mutual love for the sport despite language barriers. “Japan was one of the best experiences of my life. They love the sport. We were treated like superstars. Just being in Japan, on the other side of the planet…it was amazing.” In addition to being an instrumental member of the Boys’ Varsity Basketball team, Beckett excels in both academics and leadership roles and this past spring was inducted into the National Honor Society. This year Beckett serves as an admissions ambassador, dorm proctor, teacher’s assistant and was nominated by his fellow students to be a peer counselor. Beckett credits his nomination as peer counselor as the spark that made him want to pursue more leadership roles. “These programs at Tilton help me get out of my comfort zone. I feel like I’ve grown so much; I’m able to have conversations with people I’ve never met, which is something I didn’t do before.” When it comes to basketball, Beckett’s hustle never takes a backseat. This past summer he traveled to Los Angeles and South Carolina to work with two different trainers. He attended college camps for extra exposure and played with a Canadian team over the month of July, traveling to Las Vegas and Milwaukee. An athlete, a scholar and a role model to his peers, some may wonder how Beckett manages to keep it all together, and with such a humble head on his shoulders at that. His response when anyone asks how he does it? “I can handle it.” And handle it he does. Editor’s note: At time of publication, Eric Beckett ’19 has committed to the University of Vermont

FROM SMALL TOWN NEW HAMPSHIRE TO WASHINGTON D.C.

16 \\


by alexandra molloy

BRIGID HOSMER ’19 After hearing about United States Senate Page School from a friend, knowing little, and finding even less, Brigid Hosmer applied to Page School at the end of her sophomore year. She ended up spending six months on the Senate floor in Washington, D.C., as a Senate Page during her junior year. The Hosmer name is no stranger to politics, yet Brigid reflects on her oncein-a-lifetime experience as transformative. She had gone on the typical school trips to the New Hampshire State House in middle school; had the opportunity to sit in the gallery of the state Senate; worked on the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Senator Maggie Hassan; and her dad was a state Senator.

Q: WHAT WAS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE AS A PAGE? BRIGID: My day would start at 5 a.m. I would put on my navy blue suit and go to classes until 9:30 a.m. with other pages. We would walk to the Senate or ride the subway and work directly on the Senate floor. It was a lot of simple things like

running notes, getting water and filing paperwork for votes or amendments being passed. It was a simple job but the hours were long. We worked until the Senate adjourned which could be 4 p.m. or 2 a.m. We did take some field trips, some exclusive tours, and saw the National Archives where we got to see the actual roll-call votes.

Q: CAN YOU EXPLAIN ROLL-CALL VOTES FOR OUR READERS? B: It’s how they tally votes during any vote. These still happen on paper—the Senate is very traditional. Speeches and memos are still on paper too. The roll call votes we took will be in the National Archives with roll call votes from when they voted on whether women should be able to vote or not.

Q: CAN YOU ONLY BE A PAGE ONCE OR CAN YOU REAPPLY AND DO IT AGAIN? B: You can only be a page once, and you have to be a junior in high school. There are two semester sessions, which are six months, and two summer sessions, which are only two to three weeks. I was there for a six-month semester session. Technically you can’t go back, but they had to extend one of the summer sessions for the Kavanaugh hearing so I ended up going back for about three weeks. How amazing to be so directly connect to US Senate history.

Q: WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE PART OF PAGE SCHOOL? B: One night, I think it was tax reform, it was very late, maybe

1 a.m., and the Senators would sometimes sit with us on this carpeted step on the floor. Senator Cory Booker, Senator Heidi Heitkamp and Senator Kamala Harris sat down with us. Senator Harris looked at me and said, “I can tell you’re the boss over here. You’re doing a good job.” I teared up completely because these were our idols. It was very surreal. John McCain was walking into the Senate floor and I opened the door for him. He said, “Now this lady right here is going to become President!” I froze. It was a very cool moment, especially since we were the last class to work with him. I still get shocked because people that I saw all the time on TV were right there. I was two feet away from Jeff Sessions at one point. I never thought I’d get to see him in person. The vice president was there, and he talked to us sometimes.

Q: OVER THE SUMMER YOU ATTENDED SENATOR MCCAIN’S FUNERAL AS A PAGE. CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THAT EXPERIENCE? B: We were at the ceremony in the rotunda. It was the most powerful room I’ve been in in my whole life. Members of the Cabinet, the House, the Senate, and prominent national diplomats attended. The only lower-level people were from McCain’s office and Senate pages. While a somber experience, it was unbelievable that we got to go.

Q: WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A PAGE? B: I became a completely different person; a better version of myself. I cared about politics before, but I’d never paid too much attention. I wasn’t the most fantastic student before. Going there made me realize that you have to put in 150% or get dropped from the program. As nerveracking as that was, I never realized I could work that hard or had that work ethic. Meeting the people in the program was so transformative for me. My peers were looking to go to Harvard, MIT, Columbia, Barnard. I had never really thought to dream as big as they were. I’d never been as ambitious. I just didn’t think it was possible. Being around them was very inspiring for me, and it made me a far more ambitious person.

Q: DID PAGE SCHOOL CHANGE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AFTER TILTON? B: I knew I wanted to go into politics, but I hadn’t been as motivated to make a change. I’m looking for schools that have programs in political science and international relations. My dream is to work somewhere behind the scenes, to be chief of staff to a senator. Editor’s note: At time of publication Tilton student Robert Hess ’20 is serving as a Senate Page. He became interested in Page School after hearing Brigid speak about it at a school meeting.

IN THE CLASSROOM

CORRELATIONS BETWEEN FORM AND FUNCTION by sarah o’neill

18 \\


AP PSYCHOLOGY DIGS INTO SENSATION & PERCEPTION In the classroom of Chapel Love ’94, there is no shortage of handson learning. In fact, students quite literally dig right in. As part of the sensation and perception unit in her Advanced Placement (AP) Psychology class, students dissected cow eyeballs with the objective of connecting form to function. The lab connects Love’s teachings of the biological bases of behavior with sensation and perception. Before the lab, students researched parts and functions of the eyeball. In preparation for the main event, they watched videos on how best to perform the dissection. On lab day, students recorded themselves explaining all parts of the eye and their functions while they completed the dissection. This serves as a multimedia presentation form of a lab report. So how exactly does dissecting cow eyeballs fall into the AP Psychology category? Love has the answer: “The dissection activity allows students to draw connections between form and function in a very memorable way. They identify similarities between the cow eye and the human eye to help them understand the process of human vision. This lab is intended to bridge our units covering the biological bases of behavior and sensation and perception. It is also a good chance for me to assess their content understanding and essential skills of communication, creativity and critical thinking in a very interactive way.”

ANIKA TULLOS ’19

20 \\


by sarah o’neill

A CLEAR + COMFORTABLE TRANSFORMATION NOT MANY TEENAGERS HAVE THE CHANCE TO BECOME A BOLD, STUBBORN, 13-YEAR-OLD FROM 1942; A VULGAR, VIOLENT THIEF; AN OBSESSIVELY PUT-TOGETHER HOUSEWIFE; AND A GOOD-NATURED ELEPHANT ALL BEFORE THEY TURN 18. FOR ANIKA TULLOS ’19, BEING ABLE TO TRANSFORM INTO THESE CHARACTERS AND MORE ON STAGE IS JUST ANOTHER DAY ON THE HILL. “I used to think that the best part about acting was that you got to be someone else. But after being in so many plays, I realized you don’t really get to be someone else. When you take on a new character, you sort of absorb some of their personality. So when the play is over, you become a different person.” Anika came to Tilton in 2015 after attending a private middle school in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. That September, Anika began her freshman year with little-to-no idea what was in store for her on the Hill. Now well into her senior year, Anika is known by her fellow Rams for being a shining star on the Rome Theater stage. At the time of publication, the four-year Tilton student has acted in eleven theater productions and takes on audiences with the presence of a seasoned veteran, molding into identities far removed from her own life experience. Before Tilton, pursuing theater wasn’t at the forefront of Anika’s mind. “I ended up in theater on accident freshman year. I was scared away when I was younger from an incident with a director, but I think what changed my mind was when I went to Maine with some family and saw ‘Billy Elliot the Musical.’ That made me really want to try it again.” The first play she did at Tilton was “Lost in Yonkers,” a play by Neil Simon about two brothers living with their grandmother in

1942 Yonkers, New York. She played Arty, the younger of the two brothers, and notes this as her favorite role to date. One of her recent roles was Lee in Sam Shepard’s “True West.” A personification of the “Old West,” the character of Lee is an angry, violent thief who indulges in many vices. The complete opposite of Tullos in every way, she was excited to take on the challenge of embracing a character everyone would define as a “bad person.” “I’ve really never been angry before. That was different. I really wanted to play that character because it was a big challenge.” Although Anika is well-known for her performances, she is involved in many different activities at Tilton including film and club hockey. Although she insists she’s better on stage than behind the camera, Anika tumbled into film because of a history project for which she had to make a video. She produced, edited and narrated a short documentary titled “Introduction to Antarctica.” Anika found she enjoyed editing because it was like putting a puzzle together. After that initial project, she continued to edit, joined film class and also began to write. When she’s not shining on stage, in the editing room or on the ice as a member of the club hockey team, Anika loves to write. A few of her short stories have been published and recently, she finished a full-length science fiction novel she is hoping to have published.

Her favorite part of writing is watching a world she has created come to life. As a girl of many interests, in college Anika wants to study geology. During her senior year, she is completing an independent study in geology. “I have a weird relationship with rocks. When I was little, I accidentally ate one. My family did not let me live it down. I wanted to protect it, so I put it in my mouth. I didn’t mean to swallow it—I got really upset and started crying.” With such an eclectic portfolio during her time on the Hill, Anika credits theater to helping her grow as an individual. Through playing different characters, she has developed more of a willingness to try new things and an understanding of how people work. “We have this little saying in the theater, ever since my first Tilton play. There was one time when I had to jump off a chair and scream and be all excited, which is something I would never do in real life. It took me a couple weeks to do it; but ever since then, an uncomfortable experience in theater is called ‘jumping off a chair.’ There’s been so much of that. I think that theater is important for anyone to learn about people and how to understand them.” Her advice to new students? Just go for it. // 21

FRANCE OTTAWA JULIE CALDWELL

{ WORLD LANGUAGES DEPARTMENT CHAIR, SPANISH TEACHER, DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY SERVICE }

OTTAWA, ONTARIO Highlights: Julie Caldwell and her husband, Alex, traveled through Ottawa, staying at a youth hostel in a converted jail. Central to downtown Ottawa, they had easy access to Parliament, Marché By, the Rideau Canale, the U.S. Embassy and the National Gallery of Art. Some of their favorite activities were seeing the Northern Lights Show, watching the changing of the guard at Parliament, riding along the Rideau Canal on bikes, eating shawarma at Marché By, and watching the sunset over Quebec from Napean Point (Ontario).

“AS A LANGUAGE TEACHER, I LOVED THE CHANCE TO PRACTICE MY FRENCH AND SPANISH WITH ALL THE QUÉBÉCOIS AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS! AND OF COURSE, WE TREATED OURSELVES TO SOME OF THE TYPICAL CANADIAN CUISINES... POUTINE, TIM HORTON’S AND VARIOUS MAPLE SYRUP PRODUCTS.” -JULIE CALDWELL 24 \\

BLAINE MANNING ’19 { STUDENT BODY TREASURER, HEAD ADMISSIONS AMBASSADOR }

ENGLAND AND FRANCE: LONDON, OXFORD, THE BEACHES OF NORMANDY, CAEN, & PARIS Highlights: Blaine participated in a study and travel program through Hillsdale College in which the trip was part of a course about Winston Churchill and World War II. Blaine traveled with 53 other students from the United States. One of the biggest lessons she took away from the trip came from visiting the beaches of Normandy. “I learned so much about what fighting was really like on the beaches of Normandy. Before my visit, I didn’t really understand the breadth of the attack. It is hard to imagine that people your age, your classmates, were tasked with such enormous responsibilities. It really gives one a greater appreciation for what was done for the good of our world. I experienced a huge lesson on patriotism and humility, and it will serve me well.”

“FROM OUR MORNINGS IN LECTURES AND IN THE UNDERGROUND WAR ROOMS, OUR AFTERNOONS AT THE BEACHES OF NORMANDY AND OUR EVENINGS CROSSING THE ENGLISH CHANNEL AND WATCHING THE EIFFEL TOWER SHIMMER, EVERY MOMENT WAS UNFORGETTABLE.” -BLAINE MANNING ’19


DARREN REDMAN { ENGLISH DEPARTMENT CHAIR }

ATHENA SUMMER FELLOWSHIP

MAX KEEF ’20 & ANGELA KEEF

{ DIRECTOR OF THE CENTER FOR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT }

LONDON, ENGLAND

Highlights: Redman was one of four New Hampshire educators selected for a summer fellowship through Athena, an online think-tank where teachers can collaborate, share ideas and explore resources to enhance a “professional memory.” This experience brought together teachers from around the country in an online, “asynchronous professional development experience.” Fellows worked at their own pace, posting topics, creating interdisciplinary links, and asking questions or making comments electronically. Redman posted elements for a European Literature & Composition course and debated with online fellows the merits of student choice between Advanced Placement English Language and Advanced Rhetorical Analysis.

Highlights: While in London, the Keefs saw two British Premier League soccer games: Manchester City at Arsenal and a home Manchester City game vs. Huddersfield in Manchester. They visited Liverpool (home of the Beatles) as well as Buckingham Palace, The Mews and Windsor Castle. Henry VII’s home Hampton Court Castle, Tower of London and Churchill War Room were other historical sites the Keefs visited. And of course, the Harry Potter tour was a must-see.

“THE COLLEGIALITY AND FLEXIBILITY WERE INSPIRING.

I learned so much about the royal family of England; the other places they lived and where they live now. This was one of my favorite vacations so far!” - Max Keef ’20

The benefits of the fellowship to both me and Tilton School are significant. As a contributing fellow, I can share the Teaching Athena application with colleagues, offering online professional development with the larger teaching community. In addition, Tilton School can use such connections and technology to continue its mission and vision, to showcase the power of its potential and to support its Mastery Transcript Consortium team goal: ‘Together we will create pathways for deep, purposeful, self-directed learning, fueling lifelong discovery, creativity and growth and unleashing the skills, passion and courage to address the world’s most challenging problems.’”

“ONE OF MY FAVORITE PARTS WAS THE TOUR OF THE ETIHAD STADIUM IN MANCHESTER FOR MY FAVORITE FUTBOL TEAM MANCHESTER CITY.

BRIGID HOSMER ’19 SOUTH AFRICA Highlights: During a safari, Brigid and family saw a group of approximately 100 elephants cross a river. One small group was rolling around in the mud and spraying it on each other while the others were grazing and drinking water. The elephants continued moving until they surrounded the group when some got so close that if she had reached out she probably could have touched one.

“MY MOM HAS BEEN DREAMING OF GOING TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR YEARS, AND WE WERE FINALLY ABLE TO GO THIS YEAR. I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF ANIMALS THAT LIVE IN THE REGION. SEEING THEM IN PERSON IN THE WILD WAS AN INCREDIBLE ONCEIN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE.”

This trip is done through the Batey Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Bethlehem whose mission is “to build resilient physical infrastructure and the human capital required to raise the living standards for local children and families.” They live up to their motto, “Somos el cambio” (“We are the change”).

Q: BEFORE YOUR TRIP TO SANTO DOMINGO WITH TILTON SCHOOL, HAD YOU EVER BEEN TO SUCH A POVERTY-STRICKEN AREA? A: I had been to a handful of other countries in Europe and South America, experiencing cultures and people who live with much less than we do in the States, but I never had witnessed first-hand what it was like in some of the poorest parts of the world such as the bateyes.

Q: WHAT DID YOU KNOW ABOUT THE LOCATION YOU WOULD BE GOING TO PRIOR TO DEPARTURE? A: Earlier in the year, I had met with Julie Caldwell, Director of Community Service, who gave me a brief history of the Dominican Republic, its relationship with Haiti, and the timeline of how the people of the bateyes came to inhabit that region.

30 \\

I knew Tilton School faculty and staff had worked with the Batey Foundation in previous years. I knew we would be working in harsh conditions with minimal tools and to expect a lot of manual labor!

Q: WHAT WAS IT LIKE GOING FROM RESORT LIFE TO THE BATEYES? A: Despite everything Julie had tried to prepare me for, it was still a big shock transitioning from a resort where I had spent the week prior to joining Tilton School for the remainder of the trip. The simplest luxuries like hot water, beverage service by the pool, and around-theclock buffet meals were replaced with cold showers, bunk beds with bug nets, and tight communal living spaces where everyone had a task to make sure the

house duties were completed. No AC, rides on a crowded bus, and long hot hours in the sun were the daily norm. Being at the resort made for an even more drastic contrast to the bateyes where many houses had dirt floors and no running water or power.

Q: WHAT DO YOU THINK THE IMPACT OF THE SERVICE TRIP HAS ON THE DOMINICAN COMMUNITY IT IS ASSISTING? A: It’s quite easy to see the impact the service trip has on the Dominican community in the bateyes—the physical impact of building schools and infrastructure, the emotional impact of having us there and giving their communities hope they are not forgotten and that there are people out there who want to help them.


Q: HOW DO YOU THINK IT AFFECTED THE TILTON STUDENTS? A: From working on the video project with the students and hearing their thoughts throughout the reflection nights, I heard firsthand how they were able to gain a wider perspective of the world outside of Tilton, N.H. Experiencing different cultures and ways of life, and having a bigger appreciation for all of the opportunities and amenities they have back home. As a group, they were able to bond with each other outside of the school setting and create new connections outside of their usual friend circle.

Q: DID ANYTHING SURPRISE YOU ABOUT THE TRIP? A: The biggest surprise was seeing how happy the children of the bateyes were despite having the most minimal of resources. Every day when we arrived to the worksite, the children’s faces lit up. They were so excited to have us there. I also didn’t expect it to be so tough to leave the worksite on the last day and say goodbye to the children. This was one of the saddest parts of the trip for me and many others in the group.

Q: WHAT DID THE TRIP MEAN TO YOU? A: For me, the trip was more than just another video project for Tilton School. It was an opportunity to experience another culture and way of life that was so different than what I am used to. Spending a week with Tilton faculty and students was an amazing bonding experience. I remember my first time back on campus after the D.R. trip. I was met with hugs and high fives from those on the trip and felt more part of the Tilton community than I had ever felt before.

A SUMMER PROGRAM LIKE NO OTHER THE TILTON SCHOOL SUMMER INSTITUTE

32 \\


“THE PROGRAM GAVE US DEEPER INSIGHT INTO THE PASSIONS AND POTENTIAL OF OUR CHILD THAT WE HAVEN’T FOUND ELSEWHERE.” –PARENT OF 2018 TSSI STUDENT

Young people have within them the power to change the world. We seek to let students follow their instincts and passions into discoveries beyond themselves where skills can be best applied. Just as Tilton School faculty prepare highschool students, the Tilton School Summer Institute (TSSI) prepares students ages 11 through 14 for educational growth using a highly personalized summer experience and self-evaluation that places the student at the center of the learning process. The summer of 2018 brought with it over 40 students in the first year of the Tilton School Summer Institute. Students arrived on the Hill from around the world for three weeks of hands-on exploration typically reserved for high school. They built a tiny house and produced their own films. They constructed boats out of cardboard and tested them in the water. They partnered with One Light Theatre Company to transform into farm animals on stage in Charlotte’s Web

and learned about sustainable farming. TSSI’s Discovery Tracks provided the opportunities for students to build their own skill sets with which they will lead others and the tools with which they will navigate the pathways of positive and lasting change. Many students joined us from life in the city for the chance to spend time in the outdoors of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. They stretched beyond their comfort zones during rock climbing excursions and reflected on their time in the mountains hiking. Through service projects and strategic partnerships both on and off campus, TSSI afforded students the opportunity to grow and develop essential skills that lie at the heart of creativity, innovation and self-discovery. “There are no instructions for raising a child. Each child is different and you have to cultivate their interests. TSSI allowed my child to explore many interests and find out what her strengths and areas for

improvement were in just three weeks. The program gave us deeper insight into the passions and potential of our child that we haven’t found elsewhere. Thank you for being part of our village,” said one TSSI 2018 parent. At the end of the three-week program, TSSI students will know their strengths and passions. It will lead them to greater success and adaptability in an ever-changing world, whether in school, work or their personal lives. From a heightened understanding comes the deeper appreciation of the importance of goals and therefore the tools to self-reflect, create, monitor and revise their plans heading into secondary school and beyond. In addition to Design Build: Village of the Future, Cinematography and Videography, Arts with Purpose and Sustainable Planet Discovery Tracks, 2019 will bring new programs in Aerospace and Flight and Artificial Intelligence and Robots.

AT TILTON


WORLD WAR II & THE 1940s TWO ALUMNI STORIES

To say that Tilton School during the 1940s was a world away from where it is now would be a drastic understatement. The turmoil of war and possibility of draft loomed over campus, where school leaders remained focused on instilling faith in victory. Some Tilton students traveled a short way, remaining where their families were confident they would be safe. Others journeyed long and far, over states and continents, seeking asylum from enemy forces. No matter the story, it was a serendipitous occurrence that these teenagers landed in this small New Hampshire town during one of the most influential decades of world history. The best way to portray life accurately on the Hill during this time is to present stories of our alumni. Here we present two members of the Class of 1944: Paul Deloid of Quincy, Massachusetts, and Eric Lee, originally of Prague, Czech Republic. >>>

36 \\


PAUL DELOID ’44 “DURING THE DARKEST TIMES OF THE WAR, ONLY THE UPRIGHT POSTURE OF THE SCHOOL LEADERS KEPT US WRAPPED IN FAITH OF ULTIMATE VICTORY DURING THIS TIME...”

When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, life in the United States changed completely. Instantly, the family life of Paul Deloid ’44 was turned upside down. His 18-year-old brother was in the first draft of young men to be inducted into the United States Army. Paul was younger by four years and the youngest in his family. These circumstances urged his parents to find a boarding school where he would be safe. Tilton School is where Deloid would spend the next four years of his life. “It was mostly all business right way,” Paul recalls. “Bunking in with different boys from various states was an awakening to a young man of 14. Alone in New Hampshire with 130 strangers gave a lad some thinking to do, very quickly.” Tilton in the 1940s existed worlds away from the school it is today. From 1936 until 1958, Tilton was an all-boys school which operated a junior college in addition to a high school. A middle and lower school were also active on and off during this time period. In the fall of 1944, just before the

end of the war, Tilton’s junior college was discontinued due to lack of student demand. In the years 1942-43, the atmosphere at Tilton School was bleak as the War’s progress reports were filled with failures and retreats. To fill idle time, students were allowed to volunteer to sit in a 30-40 foot wooden watch tower for oneor two-hour shifts. Armed with a silhouette sheet to identify types of aircraft and the direction of their flight path, these students would telephone Concord, New Hampshire of any sightings; a patriotic contribution for students to support the war effort from afar. From 1943-1945, Tilton offered instruction in aeronautics. The school signed an agreement with the University of New Hampshire and the federal government to provide beds, meals and classroom space for 60 naval aviation cadets during the winter and spring of 1943. Located in Pfeiffer and East Knowles Halls, the cadets practiced ground training on campus and practiced flying at Laconia Airport. continues...

In 1945, the year that General MacArthur accepted Japan’s surrender formally ending the war, 130 students were enrolled at Tilton. Post war, Tilton Junior College resumed and enrollment soared due to a high percentage of veterans returning to their education. The third floor chapel in Knowles was converted into dorm rooms to accommodate the demand, and the chapel was moved to Hamilton Hall.

In 1945 the Civil Air Patrol, a congressionally chartered, federally supported nonprofit corporation that served as the official civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force, arrived on campus. Wyatt Estate, the current residential quad, was purchased with the intent to build a recreation building with a swimming pool as a memorial to Tilton students who gave their lives in the Second World War. In 1998, the Memorial Gymnasium was completely renovated and re-dedicated as the Memorial Athletic and Recreational Center (MARC). REFLECTIONS FROM PAUL DELOID:

“During the darkest times of the war, only the upright posture of the school leaders kept us wrapped in faith of ultimate victory during this time,” Paul said. A place of pleasant memories during the weekends was Jerrie’s drugstore, where the boys would indulge in hand-dipped ice cream and five cent cherry cokes. One day, a new Methodist preacher came into the store and solicited help to renew the interior of an old church. Deloid and several other students volunteered. It was a very dusty project that lasted several months, with the reward being an invitation to Saturday night dances with the girls in town. 38 \\

“I SALUTE THE SCHOOL AS ONE OF THE FINEST INSTITUTIONS OF CARE AND UNDERSTANDING IN PREPARING YOUNG PEOPLE FOR THE RIGORS OF ADULT LIFE. IT IS MY HOPE THAT MY CAPSULATED ACCOUNT OF LIFE IN THE TIME OF WORLD WAR II WILL SHED A DEGREE OF REALISM OF THAT PERIOD.” When the class of 1944 graduated, many young men went right into the military service. “For more than fifty reunions, I have watched the class reduce in size for one reason or another. One thing that always impressed me is most opinions of their collected experiences were expressed favorably about our precious time together and what it did for each of them,” Paul said.


ERIC LEE ’44 THE STORY OF HOW THIS JEWISH BOY OF PRIVILEGE ENDED UP AT TILTON SCHOOL IN 1943 IS A FASCINATING ONE, FILLED WITH LOSS, LOVE AND TRIUMPH.

Tilton Alumnus Eric Lee ’44 is a wellrespected Army veteran who, for many years, has made New England and New Hampshire his home away from home. Home is originally Prague, Czech Republic, where he was born Eric Lederer in 1926. Eric’s father was from a German-speaking area called the Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia, which was annexed by Hitler in 1938 as agreed upon by the Munich Agreement. For the Lederer family, Hitler’s invasion of Czechoslovakia came as a surprise. They didn’t run right away; the fear of losing everything and the failing health of Eric’s grandparents deterred them. This decision not to leave right away would prove to be a fatal one. In 1941, Eric’s father and grandparents were imprisoned. His father died in a Lodz, Poland, work camp, likely from overwork or execution in 1942. Eric’s grandparents died in Auschwitz. Before Eric’s father and grandparents were arrested, his family was trying to maintain a normal life in Prague. Following dinner one Sunday, his mother Hilda broke tradition and interrupted the men in their parlor. She announced to the men that she was going to

apply for passes from the Gestapo to leave the country, taking the children. She would call for the rest of the family once safely in the United States. Hilda, Eric and his 17-year-old sister left in June, 1939, with their luggage, $10 cash and a pillowcase of jewels. Their only option was to go to Paris, France, to apply for a visa at the U.S. Embassy. On their travels through Germany en route to France, Eric’s sister hid the pillowcase of jewels from the German inspectors by sitting on it. Once they made it to Paris, they were told it would take two years to obtain a visa. They relied on relatives and business associates to support them and send them money to get by. Hilda worked for nuns in a military hospital for French soldiers. The family then had to leave Paris out of fear of German bombing and headed south to the Vichy region. While in Vichy, the principal of Eric’s school, who was handicapped from being gassed during World War I, helped him learn French to pass his classes. This same principal eventually became a Legion of Honor member. continues...

While in Vichy, Eric’s mother met a very wealthy woman who agreed to finance them if Hilda could help her escape to Mexico. The Lederers and their new companion traveled south by train until the track ended at the mountains. Stuck, they had to live in a barn in the countryside along with many others who were fleeing. Hilda purchased enough gas from members of the French Army to have a taxi driver take them south. The taxi didn’t make it all the way to their destination, but the family and their travel companion were able to catch rides until they caught a train to Marseille. It took them two weeks. Once in Marseille, Eric and his family registered at the consulate, but were advised not to stay there out of fear of a Nazi attack. Eric started high school in Cannes. Almost two years after they started their escape, Eric’s mother received the U.S. visas. The only exit was through Spain and then Lisbon, Portugal. They had to bribe their way through both countries; and once in Lisbon, all the hotels were full. After six weeks, they gained U.S. passage on an American export line. There was great fear amongst all passengers that they would be hit by a German U-boat. Ellis Island had closed out of fear of German spies, so the ship landed in Bermuda where the Lederers were processed and sent along to Hoboken, New Jersey.

Eric and his family stayed with a school friend of Hilda’s in Westchester, New York, until his mother found a job and apartment in New York City. Eric enrolled in New York’s Scarsdale High School in April 1941, where he began to learn English. He was then sent to a summer course at the Bordentown Military Institute near Trenton, New Jersey, but was asked to leave when he was caught sneaking a girl into his room. This is when Tilton School enters their story. Anxious to find Eric a new school, his mother saw an ad for Tilton School in The New York Times Magazine and applied. He came to Tilton School in June 1943 and enrolled in the accelerated program that allowed him to graduate early in order to enlist in the military. At Tilton, Eric became head waiter and best friends with Gerard “Jerry” Crawford, valedictorian of the class of 1944. Jerry helped him with reading English, and Eric taught Jerry how to speak German. While a student, the FBI came to interview Eric to make sure he wasn’t a spy for the Nazis. Eric said he was treated well at Tilton and had teachers who always made sure he understood what they were saying because of the language barrier. He graduated in February 1944 from Tilton. Eric promptly volunteered for the U.S. Army when he turned 18 years old,

as the Army offered a shorter path to U.S. citizenship for immigrants who volunteered. While waiting to be called up, he held various jobs in Tilton including driving a Model-T Ford egg truck and an ice truck, working at the leather mill that made seats for war airplanes and working at the woolen mills in town. Eric was called up in September 1944. He was picked up by a bus at the monument in downtown Tilton and brought to Fort Dix in South Carolina. The Army recommended that he change his name out of fear that he would be killed by the Germans if caught. Once his language abilities became known to the American Commandant, he was quickly assigned to be the personal interpreter, liaison and Chief of Security Detail for Commanding Major General Louis E. Hibbs and traveled in the major general’s armored car, armed with a 50 mm machine gun. At the end of the war, in May of 1945, General Hibbs recommended Eric to the Military Government of the American Zone of Occupation. He was assigned to the City of Mannheim, Germany, where the allies were trying not to repeat the mistakes of the Versailles Treaty of 1920. This treaty ended World War I but made it possible for Hitler to rise to power. This assignment presented a personal problem for Eric, since he was asked

to aid the people of the nation who had murdered four close relatives and about 25 more family and friends. Loyal to his new country, he carried out his orders as given. This consisted of rehabbing a war- torn Germany and providing liaison to the French military zone. He also made sure his German staff would learn English so that they could take over after Eric returned to the U.S. Before his return, he took a two-week furlough to his native Prague where he was able to see a few friends and relatives who had survived. When Eric returned to the U.S. in 1946, he enrolled at the University of New Hampshire where he studied economics and history. He graduated a Dean’s List member in 1950. Eric began his career in the wool trade, then in management of Stop and Shop, eventually working for Bell & Howell as their regional sales manager for audiovisual products. Eric lived and worked in Wellesley, Mass., and had two sons with his first wife. He and his second wife, Faith, were married in 1970 and had a home in Moultonborough, N.H. Now living in Florida, they come up to New Hampshire annually to visit family, friends and Tilton School.

CRACKING THE CONCRETE CEILING WOMEN IN CONSTRUCTION ALUMNI PROFILE: KRISTEN VASLET KUPPERMAN ’06

52 \\


ALUMNI PROFILE

As a woman working in the construction industry, Kristen Vaslet Kupperman ’06 has experienced her fair share of challenges. Even as an expert in her field, she has had to prove herself every time she steps on a job site. As part of the 10 percent of women who work in construction, she is making waves and breaking through the concrete ceiling, challenging women in this field.

Following in her grandfather and father’s footsteps, Kristen has worked as a Project Engineer, Project Manager and Senior Operational Excellence Manager and is currently a Project Manager at PCL Construction. A typical day for Kristen involves throwing on work boots, a hi-vis vest, safety goggles and hard hat to oversee anywhere from 100 to 300 workers on one job site. Her daily responsibilities include managing contractors, keeping the project on schedule, on budget and mitigating risk. Because most of her projects are in cities, the work sites are small and safety is a number one priority. Kristen loves construction because everything is tangible. Plans are turned into a reality, and she gets to see it happen in real time. She has worked in New England, New York City, Chicago and Iowa and has worked on fashion retail stores for C Wonder with founder and fellow Tilton School alumnus J. Christopher Burch ’72. Her favorite project was the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

54 \\

The Iowa opportunity came about when Kristen’s husband, a physician, had just been transferred to Chicago for his residency. She was in her boss’s office speaking with him about potential opportunities when she was presented with the Children’s Hospital project. The project schedule was critical, and he thought her personality and ability to push a job along would be perfect. She thought so, too. When she told her husband about the project, he said, “Kristen, do you know where Iowa is?” “Yep.” “You know they don’t have certain stores in Iowa.” “Yep.” “How are you going to get to Iowa?” “Well, I’m going to drive a pickup truck.” Kristen headed out from New York to spend the next year in Iowa. She reflects on this as the most meaningful project of her career. For the first time, her project executive was a woman. She was ecstatic. Kristen’s project executive, Jennifer, went on to become Kristen’s mentor and a major influencer in her career. “When I first arrived in Iowa I was struggling. You could tell that my

Massachusetts personality was not well received; everyone thought I was yelling all the time when I was just talking. I went into my project executive’s office and said, ‘I don’t think I can do this anymore,’ and she told me to go back out there and push. It’s what we needed. Eventually I saw a change.” Mentorship has been an important part of Kristen’s growth. Kristen started out working in construction for her father, who has had a major impact on her career. Students at Tilton have it with their advisors—someone you can go to and ask questions; get advice from and solicit guidance; someone you connect with and can talk to about critical decisions. Kristen has been fortunate to find this not only in her father, but in her professional career with Jennifer. The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital is a 14-story, 507,000 square foot facility with 22,000 square feet of terrazzo flooring, 109 patient rooms, eight operating rooms, six procedure rooms, a movie theater, and a skybox overlooking University of Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium.


“PEOPLE ALWAYS DOUBT ME. I MUST PROVE MYSELF ON EVERY SINGLE JOB SITE I STEP FOOT ON. A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE TO REMIND ME THAT THEY’VE BEEN IN ‘THE BUSINESS’ LONGER THAN I HAVE. I’M OFTEN TESTED ON MY KNOWLEDGE; IF I CAN HANDLE THE JOB. AND THAT I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. I LOVE A CHALLENGE. I LOVE TO PROVE PEOPLE WRONG.”

Kristen became actively involved with the children at the hospital, many who are in and out of the hospital for most of their childhood. Therefore, the hospital was designed with quality of life in mind with fun colors, shapes and games built into the décor and surprises hidden in the terrazzo floor. “It was the most rewarding project I ever worked on. To be a part of a project that can give so much to people who have had a tough go of it is so rewarding. Witnessing the first patient cross the threshold was truly a special moment—one I cherish every day.” CRACKING THE CONCRETE CEILING

When asked during a First Friday speaker series presentation to Tilton’s student body if she thought being a female has made her career more difficult, Kristen didn’t hesitate for a second when she responded with a confident, “Yes,” she said, “A lot of people just don’t think you belong there.” Throughout Kristen’s career she has been repeatedly asked, “How did you get into construction?” This is something Kristen never knew how to answer because she didn’t

see what most people in her industry saw, a young woman in a male-dominated field. While Kristen hasn’t seen herself as different from anyone else, she quickly realized she had to be the most knowledgeable person on a job site. She understands that knowledge is a key aspect to power in her industry. “People always doubt me. I must prove myself on every single jobsite I step foot on. A lot of people like to remind me that they’ve been in ‘the business’ longer than I have. I’m often tested on my knowledge; whether I can handle the job; and if I know what I’m talking about. I love a challenge. I love to prove people wrong.” Kristen experiences challenges in many aspects of her job but sees the industry is changing. More women are being hired as engineers and not just support staff. She tries to instill some of her knowledge to women new to the industry so they may not have to go through the struggles she did. When asked what advice she would give to women who want to break into a male-dominated industry she replied, “Knowledge. Gain as much knowledge as you can. Be persistent. And don’t change

who you are to break through that ceiling.” Construction is tangible. It comes to life before your eyes and can have a significant impact on the people it surrounds. Kristen and her dad have a running joke and competition going; they’re trying to change the skyline and competing to see who can erect more buildings. “He’s a few ahead of me.”

Kristen graduated from Tilton School in 2006 and attended American University in Washington, D.C. where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and was a member of the women’s ice hockey team. She has since worked in construction as a project manager on projects in retail, housing, and healthcare. Kristen is currently a member of the Board of Trustees at Tilton School.

A tradition started in 2017, after the first quarter of University of Iowa Buckeye football games. Fans in the stadium turn away from the field and wave to the children watching the game from the windows of the newly built Children’s Hospital. The tradition was started on social media as a suggestion from a fan and has turned into something much larger.

We are so grateful for your generosity and pride in Tilton School. As the parent of a recent graduate, I share that pride. When the cost of educating our students exceeds the tuition collected, gifts to the Tilton Fund are vital. For the fifth consecutive year, members of our board and the faculty and staff continued their support at 100% and 98%, respectively. Participation by both parents and alumni has continued to increase. Clearly, our work has meaning to those who are directly impacted. The faculty at Tilton continue to design and implement a new curriculum in order to better prepare our students to navigate a world marked by increasing diversity and change. Our Parents’ Association and Alumni Ambassador program are increasingly active and committed. Likewise, we hope each of you will donate your time and resources to the advancement of Tilton School and our mission. We greatly appreciate your generosity to Tilton School. In particular, I would like to thank those of you who contributed in the past year. Your ongoing support will ensure the gift of a Tilton School education will exist for future generations. With my deepest appreciation,

David McElhinny P’13 Chair, Board of Trustees

DONOR PROFILE TRUSTEE: MATT MASIELLO ’90 Raising a young family and working to grow my business monopolized my time for many years. Several years ago, I re-engaged with Tilton and started to develop an interest in the evolving, cutting-edge educational programs. The past is never a big motivator for me, but an exciting and challenging future will always draw my attention. Tilton is leaning into change and becoming a leader in adolescent education—this is exciting —and as a donor, I am contributing to this evolution and ultimate success!

DONOR PROFILE LEGACY GIVING: THE FINN FAMILY Tom and Ellen Finn P’00, ’03, ’05: Tilton School is a wonderful environment that nurtured our three children’s ability to realize their true potential as students and citizens. They bonded and made friendships with members of the Tilton community that will last a lifetime. Tilton was, and is, a very important part of all of our lives. We are vested in the continuing success of the school as a place where students can realize their passions and chart a course to become tomorrow’s leaders. As parents of three alumni, and having served as Tilton School Trustees, we are passionate about this little school on the hill because it is a big part of the heart and soul of our family. We give to keep this very special school alive and well so other young people and their families can experience Tilton and call it home.

GOLD

(GRADUATES OF THE LAST DECADE) For the third year in a row, the Class of 2015 had the highest participation rate out of all the GOLD classes at 23% participation. In second place the Class of 2009 showed their Ram pride with 21% of the class making a donation to the Tilton Fund. And in third place, our youngest alumni with a strong show of class spirit with 19% participation. Also worth mentioning, the classes of 2007, 2010 and 2012 all achieved better-than-average participation rates as measured by the National Association of Independent Schools. Very impressive! A special shout-out once again to the 2015 Class Ambassadors—Leah Corson, Tyler Hatch, AnnMarie Manganiello, and Ethan Pope and to all the GOLD donors of Ram Nation.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////

Thank you to all our GOLD alumni for giving back today for a stronger Tilton tomorrow. Go GOLD! //////////////////////////////////////////////////

DONOR PROFILE ALUMNUS: HOYT McCUIN ’16 I can’t thank this school enough for everything it has done for me. I have made tremendous growth as a person, a student and an athlete. I had such an amazing experience at Tilton School. I was so blessed to have meaningful relationships with my teachers. That is not the norm for most high school students. Still to this day, I communicate with former coaches and also stay in touch with my advisor. I thank Tilton for that!

Inspired by the Class of 2016 gift of a movable firepit, the Class of 2018 built a permanent fire pit between Maloney Hall and the Chapel along with a bench for seating at the firepit. The remainder of class funds was donated to the Tilton Fund with the purpose of bettering athletics, outdoors, visual and performing arts programs.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 2018 CLASS PRESIDENT, MADISON CLARK:

“For each and every one of us, Tilton is permanent. It

will always be a place that we keep in our thoughts because of the relationships that we create with the people here. The moments we spent gathered together on the quad surrounding the pit, warmed by the fire and the feeling that we as a community are so close will be cherished forever. Shouting out the lyrics to songs we all know by heart, making eye contact with someone across the way and instantly smiling, toasting a marshmallow to perfection or talking to somebody for the first time, it’s the memories like these that are permanently within us.”

TILTON FUND SCHOLARS PROGRAM Since its introduction in 2016, the Tilton Fund Scholars Program–with the support of a number of generous benefactors–has offered the gift of opportunity to a number of Tilton students. Georgia Cullington ’17, a recent Tilton Fund Scholar graduate, reflected:

“BEING NAMED A TILTON FUND SCHOLAR ALLOWED ME TO ATTEND THE SCHOOL THAT I CALL A FAMILY. WITHOUT THE HELP OF THIS SCHOLARSHIP, I WOULD HAVE HAD TO ATTEND ANOTHER SCHOOL FOR MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. I BELIEVE I WOULD NOT BE WHERE I AM TODAY IF NOT FOR THIS SCHOLARSHIP. I AM NOW A BIOMED PRE-DENTAL STUDENT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. I HAVE JOINED ALPHA CHI OMEGA, THE PRE-DENTAL SOCIETY, AND PROJECT SUNSHINE HERE TO CONTINUE MY COMMUNITY SERVICE WORK.”

DONOR PROFILE STAFF MEMBER: BETH SHEEHAN { DIRECTOR OF FINANCE AND OPERATIONS } My annual gift to Tilton is one of the easiest philanthropic decisions I make each year as a long-time employee of Tilton School. I get to see and hear firsthand the excitement of learning that goes on in our classrooms daily, and it is transformational! The dedication and passion of our faculty is inspiring, and they need our support to continue to help each one of our students on their journey to their fullest potential. My support of the Annual Fund each year is easy to do and so important to continue Tilton’s strong commitment to excellence in education! // 81
