AMAZON - June 2008, 2009, 2011 Students travel to John Carterâ€™s ranch in the Amazon to study sustainability and the relations between various groups in the area. Associate Head of School Brian Easler has organized the trips and Dean of Studies Erik Kindblom and biology teacher Paul Ekness have participated. Inspired by their visits with the Kamayura and the Xavante Indians, seniors Austin Little and Teresa Kennedy are starting a fundraising effort to provide medical supplies to those tribes.

Reflections by Rodney LaBrecque, Head of School
et’s face it. Who does not live somewhat in the future during some part of each day? Certainly, any Head of School spends an inordinate amount of time devoted to “future think”. During the current academic year, 2011-2012, part of me is already focused on 2012-2013. For example, in September the Director of Finance and I began working on the budget for that school year. With the admission officers, I began strategizing on the recruitment of the ’12-’13 pool of new students. In October, I worked with the Board of Trustees to plan major projects, securing such details as architectural renderings and approximate costs of projects so fund raising goals can be established during the next year. With the Director of Advancement, I
began mapping out visits to those graduates, parents, and friends of the school who might be ideal candidates for the Board of Trustees to serve a year from now. So while we are at the opening of this academic year, the next one occupies a good share of my attention. I am not alone in this focus on the future. All the members of the Class of 2012 can think of little else than the college to which they wish to be accepted so they can matriculate there. Coaches are reaching out to recruits who will populate their teams in ’12-’13 and beyond.
Human optimism needs the future. The future is the place where hope thrives. While hope alone may not be a good strategy, hope certainly undergirds any strategy. When I think about the students who attend not only our school, but any high school these days, I sometimes think of them as the Harry Potter generation. The major literary event of their time has been the publication of the seven JK Rowling masterpieces. Within those fantasy novels, one character above all philosophizes extensively. Albus Dumbledore makes pronouncement after pronouncement designed to lead the tween and teen reader to greater insight in how to behave and how to think. He argues strongly that concentrating on the future too much is not healthy. “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” It is easy to allow oneself to live too much in the future and in so doing forget to enjoy what is actually happening. One reason why I enjoy attending Academy sporting events, musical and theatrical productions, and everyday classes is that in these activities, the time which matters is the present. The action there takes place now and not in preparation for next year. Students and faculty perform in the moment. Rewards, or lack thereof, are immediate. Students learn or they don’t. Teachers succeed or they do not. Of course, there is always more that can be or must be done tomorrow. Yet, what happens today stands on its own accomplishment. It cannot be changed. It cannot be wished away. It cannot be altered. It is available for present enjoyment, if only one is aware. So before I get carried away with my hopes and dreams for the future of WMA, I plan to take some time this fall to enjoy what we are now. I hope you will do the same.

A FRIENDLY LIFE...
Longtime Academy Friends Pres and Helen Blake Continue To Make a Difference at WMA
wo young Springfield, MA residents, S. Prestley “Pres” Blake and his brother Curtis, founded Friendly Ice Cream in 1935 during the Great Depression. Through hard work and perseverance, they grew their business in into a successful chain of restaurants with a corporate headquarters based in Wilbraham. Giving back to their community and the communities where their employees lived is part of their success story.
Above left,Pres and Helen Blake with Chelby Wakefield ’09, a Blake Scholar, at her commencement. Pres recently shared his entrepreneurial tale in an autobiography, A Friendly Life, a book that will be required reading for students in our Center for Entrepreneurial & Global Studies program.
WMA has been fortunate to be the recipient of Pres and his wife Helen’s philanthropy. The Blakes have generously supported the Academy through millions of dollars in gifts which have provided support for a variety of projects including Wallace Blake Dormitory, the Blake Middle School building and the S. Prestley and Helen Blake Scholarship. Pres loves a challenge and has often stepped forward to offer funds that match gifts from other donors. As members of the WMA Heritage Society, the Blakes have made provisions for the Academy in their estate plan. This year, the Pres and Helen have supported the WMA Turf Field Project with a gift of $75,000. We thank the Blakes for their longtime commitment to the Academy. WMA is grateful for their friendship and all that they have done to provide an outstanding education for talented young people. Above left, Pres in front of the first Friendly location.

AP Scholars 38 students earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition by the College Board of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams. Only a small percentage of the nearly two million students who took AP Exams worldwide performed at a sufficiently high level to earn an AP Scholar Award. Jeremy Gilfor ’11, a freshman at Stanford University this fall, qualified for the National AP Scholar Award in addition to being an AP Scholar with Distinction by earning an average score of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. Of the eight exams he took in 2010 and 2011, Jeremy scored 5 on six of them – English Language, English Literature, European History, Microeconomics, World History, and Environmental Science. He scored 4 on the U.S. History and Spanish Language exams. In addition to Jeremy, ten students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on a five-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are members of the Class of 2011 except where noted: Derrick Barnagian, Wooyoung Choi, Jessica Duncan, Evan Filkins, Junyu Huang ’12, Agustin Lew ’12, Timothy Manghan, Adam Schrecengost, Naruhiko Sugiura, Ziwei Wang. Eleven students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. The students are members of the Class of 2011 except where noted: Casey Berg, YiJia Chen ’12, Taek Whun Chung ’12, Xueci Ding, Christopher Glabicky, Yifan Jiang ’12, Peiyuan Li ’12, Austin Little ’12, Jeannette Viens, Chi Zhang, Shuyi Zhang.

Bay State student ambassadors Matthew Robbins ’12 , right, and Jackson FrenchRobitaille ’14 were accepted to the Bay State Student Ambassador program this summer, two of only five high school students fom all of western Massachusetts. Matt says, “The program was a really great opportunity for high school students interested in going into the medical field to get some hands-on experience. One thing that I really enjoyed was the close relationships that I developed with the patients, especially in the short amount of time I was with them. I was assigned to the Chestnut Surgery Center one day a week for eight weeks. I got the chance to discharge patients after minor surgeries. This was great because I heard a unique story for each person I met. Everyone was always very thankful for the work I was putting in. The whole experience was great, and reinforced the fact that I am willing to devote the rest of my life to being in the medical field.” Jackson especially liked, “… feeling like I was really part of a hospital environment, being able to see behind the scenes and having a chance to talk with all different types of professionals there. The evening classes in radiology, pharmacy, laboratory procedures, and surgery were probably the best though. I actually cauterized and sewed stitches into a piece of steak and surgically removed the seeds of a kiwi. The Director of the program even made additional special arrangements for me to shadow an Emergency Room doctor at another hospital. Having these opportunities just solidified my ideas of wanting to become a doctor, and in fact, made me even more determined to find a way to pursue that.” Children’s International Summer Village (CISV) This summer Jack Viens ’13 participated as a junior counselor (JC) at CISV in Youngstown, Ohio. Of his experience, Jack says, “Forty-seven 11-year-old children from 14 different countries spent a month together learning each others’ cultures and traditions. Some of the countries were Brazil, China, Norway, and India. My job as JC consisted of being a bridge between leader and child, helping the staff, helping the leaders with small problems, being a role model, and finally being a friend for the kids. It was a great experience.”

AP U.S. History teacher Gary Cook and Mathematics Department Chair Mark Fischer spent some time early this summer reading AP exams. Mark was in Kansas City, Missouri, reading Calculus exams and Gary was in Louisville, Kentucky, reading U.S. History exams. For the past three years, Chemistry teacher Dr. Kathleen Gorski and her students have been conducting measurements of the earth’s albedo, the proportion of solar energy that bounces back out to space when it hits the Earth’s surface. The albedo is measured by comparing photographs of small blank white pieces of paper taken at a given time to the surrounding ground surface. Dr. Gorski presented the results of the project at the National Science Teachers Association meeting in Hartford, Connecticut, at the end of October.
The Peace Corps celebrated its 50th birthday in Washington DC from September 21 to 24, with symposia, country gatherings, a black-tie gala, and a culminating memorial service and procession of flags from Arlington National Cemetery to the Lincoln Memorial. At the memorial service, the first two volunteers from the Kennedy family, Maeve Kennedy McKean, who taught English in Mozambique and Joe Kennedy III (Dominican Republic 2004-2006) spoke of their experiences and the value of public service. Retired Director of the International Student Program and Communications Director Tony and Rita Carey (Turkey 1966-1968) were two of the more than 5,000 Returned Volunteers and Staff to participate. Other returned volunteers on the WMA faculty include Mark Fischer (Swaziland 1989-1991), Brian Lautenschleger (Lesotho 19982000), and Walter Swanson (Cape Verde 1996-1998). Tim Lindberg ’06 is currently serving in Suriname. Were you a Peace Corps Volunteer? Let the Alumni Office know where you served, when, and what type of program you were in.

On September 19, Associate Head of School Brian Easler and Director of the International Student Program Gayle Hsiao headed for New York City to serve as volunteers at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, the only venue where business, government, and civil-sector leaders work together to plan and launch specific projects – Commitments to Action – to address global economic, environmental, and social challenges. The meeting, which takes place each year over four days, incorporates large plenary sessions, focused working sessions, and special events to enable members to learn from global topic experts, interact with fellow members, and formulate plans to turn ideas into action.
There were many memorials to 9/11 on the tenth anniversary this year. Locally, both the town of Wilbraham and the Academy acknowledged the anniversary. The town held a memorial service at St. Cecelia’s at which Young-Jun Lee ’12 sang, and Dean of Residential Life Tiffany Norman organized a candle-light vigil on campus. For the last 11 years in New York City, Kent Karosen ’84 has been organizing a tribute in Central Park for his coworkers at Cantor Fitzgerald. It has become an event attended by thousands commemorating the loss of the nearly 700 Cantor Fitzgerald employees who lost their lives that day. Kent survived because he went to vote that morning and arrived at work just as the first plane hit. Brian Murphy ’76 was one of Kent’s coworkers. This year the program featured The New York Pops, Carol King, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Broadway stars Brian Stokes Mitchell and LaChanze. Read Kent’s account of the tragedy and its aftermath on page 32.
Director of Major Gifts Christina Cronin is pleased to announce that The Western Massachusetts Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals has endorsed the nomination of Wilbraham & Monson Academy for the 2011 Award for Excellence in Fundraising. The nomination is based on the World Ahead campaign during which the Academy raised more than $15 million in ten years, including such projects at Corbin Fields restoration, faculty housing, the Campus Center renovation, creation of the Heritage Courtyard, classroom technology, and other improvements to the campus of the Academy.

“Beijing is a city beyond comparison, and almost beyond description. I had never seen a city so majestic, so rich with history, or so imposing, In China, the crowd is as much a living entity as the human beings of which it is composed. The crowd has its own flow, its own sense of cohesion, and to force one’s way through it is to experience the country at a level like Nicholas Jalbert ’12 no other.” “The most fun thing we did was walk along the Great Wall of China. It was the part of the trip that I had been looking forward to most, and it far exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely stunning. With the view of the wall climbing the beautiful mountains, it felt as if I was stuck inside a postcard. I am incredibly thankful that I have had this opportunity.” Caroline Manghan ’13

Molley Shea reported after the game, “We had scored early in the first half and were dominating the whole game until they scored with 5 minutes left in the second half. Unfortunately we had to go into overtime, where we scored an amazing goal with seconds left in the game. It was a well-fought game by all, but we came out of it on the winning side. Molly and I shared this experience that brought us closer as friends and got us ready for our fall season with WMA. Molly was a key in the midfield.

Patrick Mazeika ’12, son of math teacher Joe Mazeika ’73, has had a very successful career at Salisbury School, earning honors every trimester and excelling in both football and baseball. Patrick, who spent three years in the WMA Middle School, transferred there as a freshman. Last fall, Patrick, who earned All-Erikson League and All-New England honors, kicked the winning field goal in the Class A New England Championship game, earning the Crimson Knights the Tom Flaherty Championship Trophy to cap an undefeated season. The Salisbury baseball team was 16-1 and 14-0 in league play last spring. Patrick batted .544 with three homers and 35 RBI, on his way to earning All-Western New England honors. He spent this summer in East Cobb, outside of Atlanta, Georgia, with the East Cobb Braves playing premier youth baseball. The Braves won two titles this summer: the 2011 Perfect Game 17U WWBA World Series Championship and the 2011 Perfect Game 18U World Series Championship. The New England Baseball Journal has ranked Patrick one of the top-10 New England Players to Watch. The following praise for Patrick appeared on the Salisbury School website as part of the 2011 Varsity Football season preview: “Salisbury has had some very ‘special’ special teams in recent years, and Patrick Mazeika ’12 is one of the main reasons for that. Mazeika has a tremendous leg, and will handle all of the punting and kicking for the Knights. Mazeika will be a great weapon to have to pin back opposing teams deep in their own territory.”

he Global School recognizes its obligation to the betterment of the planet we are living on. With the threat to the environment at an all time high, sustainability efforts have become a high priority for the WMA community. Is a self-sustaining school a possibilty? In looking at the efforts of students, faculty, and alumni, WMA seems to be headed in the right direction. The Global Ecolearn Project® grant has enabled environmental science to go beyond classroom, with recent projects including the Forest Stewardship Club. Lak Dining Hall makes strides in sustainability under the leadership of Executive Chef Scott Bicknell, whose ultimate goal is to teach students that when it comes to food, we are capable of sustaining ourselves. Alumni are taking sustainable living beyond the WMA campus, developing new, earth-friendly technologies and spreading environmental awareness. Dedication to the environment is a strong value at WMA, and the efforts to live sustainably are expanding. As global citizens, students are reaching beyond the borders of campus and taking the sustainability effort abroad. With global efforts like these, change is possible.

The Global Effort Beyond WMA: Students reflect on sustainability abroad
During my trip to Costa Rica, we stayed on a 100-percent self-sustainable ranch called Rancho Mastatal. We couldn’t get away from sustainability! From planting trees and growing our own food to harnessing the methane gas from the decomposition toilets, the whole 10 days was full of sustainability. Even the shower water was solar heated!

In New Orleans, we stayed at ‘Our School at Blair Grocery’ for about a week and helped to run the farm by turning up compost piles, shifting soil, and planting. The entire property is geared towards going green by helping to rebuild the economy in the Lower Ninth Ward of NOLA after Katrina. However, I was surprised to see a lack of recycling throughout New Orleans. I had thought that the United States had some kind of countrywide recycling program, but I guess not. There is no curbside pickup of recycables like we have here in New England. Steven Ragnauth ’12

In the past few years, our country has made a tremendous effort in caring for our planet: we reduce, reuse, recycle, and best of all, we are efficient about it. Unfortunately, Russia still has a way to go in this department. It wasn’t that Moscow and St. Petersburg were particularly unclean per se (only as much as any other city), but there was definitely a distinct lack of green bins and RECYCLE labels that I have now grown accustomed to here in the States.

Paul Ekness and his eager
Paul Ekness began the Forest Stewardship Club as part of The Global EcoLearn Project®, in hopes of raising awareness within the student body of preserving the natural forests surrounding WMA, making them better, and counteracting destruction. This past year, he and a group of students spent ten Sundays identifying and controlling invasive species surrounding Crystal Pond. “Crystal Pond adds many natural resource values to the WMA campus that include aesthetic and habitat for increased biodiversity,” explains Mr. Ekness. The beauty of Crystal Pond can easily be overlooked. Set behind the WMA Middle School, it is a hidden gem on the walk over to the Greenhalgh Gymnasium. Controlling invasive species not only makes the natural beauty of the pond more apparent, but also enables native species to flourish, promoting biodiversity on campus.
Throughout the year, 17 students became actively involved in the Forest Stewardship Club. Here, Patrick Schmidt ’12, Chris Glabicky ’11, and YuanQing Liu ’12 use shears to clear away invasive species such as purple loose strife, multiflora rose, glossy buckthorn, and asiatic bittersweet vine.

Crystal Pond a sustainable face lift.
Once the invasive species were cleared, WMA Middle School students saw the perfect opportunity to put their gardening skills to good use. After completing a unit on soil studies, the sixth graders researched native plants that would flourish in the environment around Crystal Pond. They found native berry bushes, particularly blueberries, would be an ideal fit. Native blueberries growing around the pond would provide food for a vareity of local birds, and perhaps a few middle schoolers as well. Blueberry bushes were both salvaged from the land to be cleared for the turf sports fields on Faculty Street, and purchsed from local vendors. The sixth grade students proceeded to plant the bushes in the cleared area. In addition to the blueberry bushes, Mr. Ekness has hopes of introducing a wider variety of native species to the environment, such as pepperbush and the common winterberry, in order to attract different wildlife species.

Sustainable Dining T
here is no question that the students and faculty of the Academy love what Scott Bicknell is serving in Lak Dining Hall with a wide selection of fresh, tasty food. What we may not realize is the sustainability effort going on behind each meal. While turning off lights and recycling are obvious ways to go green, sustainable cooking and eating also help to save the earth. These efforts are happening every day in the kitchen of Lak Dining Hall under Mr. Bicknell’s leadership. Several steps have already been taken to make sure the kitchen is running in an eco-friendly manner. All paper products are made of recycled content, and all cleaning products are labeled environmentally safe. All fryer waste is diverted, and is used to power vehicles. The kitchen recently invested in a “food hopper,” a super garbage disposal unit that will dispose of waste in the most efficient way possible. Most importantly, much of the produce coming out of the kitchen is purchased locally. Buying locally is an essential component in running a sustainable kitchen. “We buy from local farmers as often as possible,” says Bicknell. “Produce is purchased from several farms in the area, all within a 150-mile radius of the school.” Buying locally allows us to know where food is coming from, and how it was grown. This not only provides peace of mind, but results in better food. The number of miles between farm and table are cut down significantly, resulting in a smaller impact on the environment. When food is grown locally, the need to ship across the country or across oceans is eliminated, tasks that require the burning of a great amount of fossil fuels. Perhaps the largest benefit of buying locally, however, is fresher food. The fewer the miles in between the farm and the table, the crisper the lettuce, the redder the tomato, the tastier the meal. In purchasing from local farms, we are supporting the environment, as well as good taste.
here at WMA, furthering the sustainability effort by providing fresh produce for the dining hall. The field next to Supervisor of Athletic Facilities David Weeks’ home on Bulkley Road is the site he plans to cultivate. Utilizing the new greenhouse is also a possibility. Getting students involved in this experience is Scott’s greatest hope: “It’s important that the kids see that it’s possible for us to sustain ourselves. First I’d get students involved on a volunteer basis, and then I’d like to see this program eventually worked into the curriculum.” In such a program, students would plant, care for, and harvest a variety of crops, learn to prepare the foods they grow, and serve the food they’ve grown to the community. Through this experience, they would learn the responsibility that comes with farming, the importance of sustainability, and the rewards of cooking with fresh food. “I love to cook, and I love to teach. I teach all my staff here in the dining hall, and it would be great to take a step back and teach the kids.” Promoting healthy eating, as well as sustainable living, are the driving forces behind Bicknell’s endeavors. The steps he has already taken to minimize our impact on the Earth while providing fresh, nutritious food are admirable, and he hopes that through farming and cooking, the students of WMA could take part in this effort and find themselves just as excited about it as he is.
Perhaps the only thing better than buying locally is growing your own. Scott has high hopes that a garden could be started

Food For Thought: Scott Attends a Symposium at Ethel Walker
n June, Scott attended a twoday symposium held by the Ethel Walker School intended to educate and inspire those working towards sustainability within the food service industry. The symposium, “Food For Thought”, offered a unique view of the progress being made in sustainable farming, cooking, and eating, as well as food education. The symposium brought Scott to Billings Forge Community Works, an organization promoting healthy living, civic engagement, and work ethic in the impoverished Frog Hollow community of Hartford. The organization achieves these goals by offering job opportunities in their award-winning restaurant, Firebox, education within their teaching garden and community kitchen, access to fresh food from their weekly farmers market, and a sense of vibrant community with cultural events. The organization also partners with the Community Farm of Simsbury, which provides farm-grown food and educational programs for the community. The marriage of education and healthy eating through local agriculture that Scott saw further encouraged his hopes for similar programs at WMA.

isiting faculty member John Cain Carter, who has hosted the past three WMA educational trips to the Amazon, was awarded 2nd place Award for Social Entrepreneurship by the Skoll Foundation in 2011. Given that the Nobel Foundation doesn’t award a prize for conservation or social entrepreneurship, the Skoll Award represents the highest honor in the field. John’s 2nd place award comes with a $400,000 grant for Alianca da Terra, a leading market-based conservation NGO that John founded in Brazil which has support from private landowners and government, as well as political, environmental, and scientific partners. The Skoll Foundation was established in 1999 by philanthropist and social entrepreneur Jeff Skoll, who was the first employee and first president of eBay. Skoll Foundation grants are awarded to social entrepreneurs whose work has the potential for large-scale behavior, policy, or infrastructure change in the areas of tolerance and human rights, health, environmental sustainability, peace and security, institutional responsibility, and economic and social equity.
Skoll Award recipients typically exhibit many of the following characteristics: n Led by a visionary, effective social entrepreneur serving as a spokesperson for their issue n Strong leadership team and board n Clear mission and implementation model n Unwavering focus on mission n Well-established strong partnerships n Commitment to systems, including for measurement and learning n Diversified and mission-aligned funding sources n Target audience at center of solution n Deep understanding of issue John Carter has helped the Xavante become cattle ranchers, teaching them the essentials of raising cattle and expanding their herd. He has also trained the Indians of the area to be firefighters in order to protect their land. Both of these efforts are considered groundbreaking by local and international groups.

Tim Harrington ’73 WMA English Department Chair This past spring, I was delighted when I heard the news that Pulitzer Prize winning poet Galway Kinnell ’44W would be our Class of 2011 Commencement speaker. I‘ve been a long-time fan of Galway’s poetry and had taught a number of his poems in junior English, including “The Bear” and “Blackberry Eating.” It was Galway’s remarkable dedication to Roger Lincoln in his Selected Poems that strikes me to this day for it was Roger who had first influenced Galway to pursue a literary life, and it was Roger who had influenced me to pursue teaching English in the very same place (Old Academy – but a couple floors up). Galway Kinnell is a giant in the world of American poetry. In addition to the Pulitzer, his work has garnered a National Book Award, The Frost Medal, which is awarded by the Poetry Society of America, and the Wallace Stevens Award, from the Academy of American Poets, among many other awards and fellowships. He was poet in residence at a number of distinguished colleges and universities during the course of his career, and he was a professor at New York University for 25 years. He has published 14 books of poetry as well as books of translations of the poets Francois Villon and Rainer Maria Rilke. I was not disappointed. Galway gave the Wilbraham & Monson community a heartfelt discourse on what it meant to him to come to Wilbraham Academy in the 1940s from the mill town of Harrington continued on page 30
TH – I enjoyed your commencement address, but one question that occurred to me later was: what was your son’s reaction to the poem you read at Commencement? As I recall, you gave him a choice of three boxes at the end of the poem: 1) Tear the poem up; 2) Don’t publish but give him a copy; or 3) publish it on the chance that someone will read it and will find some clarity. GK – A few years ago, he came up for a visit and I left the poem out for him to see. He checked the last box. TH – You talked a little bit about your childhood in Pawtucket and coming to Wilbraham Academy through the intervention of Mr. Greenhalgh. I have a few questions about your experiences at the Academy. What was it like going to Wilbraham Academy during the war? You graduated in 1944. Was there an awareness of the war? GK – Oh yes. There was a great awareness of the war. Many students stayed over the summer so they would get in as much of Wilbraham as possible before they went into the service. We had a course taught by someone who didn’t ordinarily teach that subject because it was hard to get teachers. Also the rifle range was very busy. But most of the time we tried to put the war out of mind. TH – In your commencement address, you mention the impact Roger Lincoln’s teaching had on you. What was it that was so powerful for you as a young man? GK – I don’t think I had met a person anywhere who was Roger’s equal as a teacher. He was devoted to literature. He knew that reading was the most important thing we could be doing, not only for English class, but for all other disciplines and for life. Some days he would pull out a long short story and read it to us. And we really loved to listen. When he read, everyone, even those least interested in literature, were paying careful attention to what he was reading. TH – Were there any books from that classroom that you remember being struck by? I’m putting you on the spot. GK – If you had asked me about a half century ago, I might have still remembered. TH – I was in Roger’s English class a few decades later. We read Moby Dick. And Roger loved that book. And he would read in class as you said. I particularly I remember him reading the key scene in Moby Dick where Ahab challenges God. He also loved Mark Twain, especially the humorous stories. We didn’t read Huck Finn but we read a bunch of short stories. GK – I do remember reading a splendid and gripping short story called “The Most Dangerous Game.” TH – What position did you play on the football team? GK – I was right end. And I was the right fielder on the baseball team and I batted fifth. TH – So you hit with power?
WMA 16 · Spring 2011 · The Academy World

GK – I could hit the ball farther than anyone else when the ball was served up to me, but in the actual games I didn’t stand out as a hitter. TH – You spent many decades in New York writing and teaching at NYU. And yet you grew up in New England and live in Vermont. I’m putting you on the spot: Red Sox or Yankees? GK – I grew up in Red Sox country, all my friends in childhood and later in pickup baseball games in Pawtucket loved the Red Sox. I did too. When I was in 10th grade, the father of a friend took us to Fenway to see a game. Amazingly, Ted Williams hit a home run! In those days, we listened to many of the games on my little homemade radio down in the cellar. TH – In football, you said you played right end. Was that a blocking position at that time or did you catch the ball as well? GK – Blocking position. All season, I had only one ball thrown to me and it went over my head. TH – You mentioned in your commencement address writing for the school paper The Atlas? Do you remember that experience? GK – It wasn’t something close to my heart. I wrote about the misadventures of my protagonist, called Jonathan Squeers, once a week. I had a friend who was a great comedian who loved puns and got me using puns in my column, which spoiled my writing but made the column easy to write. TH – Did you have a byline? GK – Since it was a regular column, I did. I was called Casey Kinnell. TH – Probably the biggest issue today for students is dress code. Back then, Wilbraham was a coat and tie school like probably every prep school in the 1940s. Was that an adjustment coming from public school? GK – It didn’t trouble me that I had to wear jacket and tie – much better than any of the embarrassing homemade outfits in which my mother had sent me to school in Pawtucket. TH – Did the Academy feel strict to you in those days with parietals and lights out at a certain time? GK – My parents had been plenty strict, so Wilbraham’s lightsout was ok with me. I should add that – as I had a single room to myself – I did arrange a reading spot that was not visible through any window where I could read late into the night. And I also did some crazy things with a schoolmate. TH – (laughing) Can you give an example? GK – It was with my closest friend, Wally Clough. Wally was very easygoing, smart and funny, and cool. We had lots of exploits, but one of them came apart. Once we were doing something else and we missed dinner by 45 minutes. I remembered a book called the Bastable Children, an English book about children in school approximately our age who always got into some comical adventure. I thought we were just doing what English children did in their loftier schools. Wally said: “What are we going to do?” And I said: “Well, let’s give them a letter from the headmaster, except we will write the letter.” So we wrote a letter asking the kitchen staff to give these two boys their dinner and signed our schoolboy’s version of the headmaster’s name. It was a completely idiotic plan – a swift glance at the letter would have revealed that we were just two miscreant students up to a bit of innocent mischief. Then we went down to the dining hall, which
was empty of eaters, and handed the letter over to the kitchen staff, thinking they would slip us an apple or something. We really didn’t expect them to take it seriously. But they were very disturbed that we had signed the headmaster’s name in a blatant attempt to get a dinner we didn’t deserve. The next day I was told to appear before the student council and put through a kind of trial. Nevertheless, I gave a very good apology and I asked them to forgive this childish act without punishment. I was on the student council myself, a connection that made things a bit easier. There was a student at school who wanted to be a politician – we all called him “The Senator”. He was so impressed by my argument, especially when I mentioned the Bastable children who were, of course, unknown to all but me – that he came to my room later that evening to tell me what a great defense I had made. He said he wanted to get in touch with me once we got out into the world because he thought we would do great things together (laughter). TH – What else about your experience at Wilbraham left a mark over the years? GK – One of the most useful parts of the Wilbraham Academy education was that every graduating senior had to recite a poem. It was supposed to help you get over the willies later in life when you had to speak to groups. Every student had to recite in front of the whole school. I remember one student read a poem about the war and the persecution of Jews and I very much appreciated that. I, on the other hand, too new to poetry to think that I could read a serious poem well, read a comical poem, “The Shooting of Dan McGrew” by Robert Service. TH – Anything else about your Academy days? GK – There was one more thing about Wilbraham that was very important to me. It involved a girl. Didsy was her name. She was a student at MacDuffie. The girls would come over every week or so for a dancing lesson. Did you have anything like that? TH – They were called “mixers” in my day. The girls would come over in a school bus on a Friday night and everyone would stand around and talk and drink punch or soda. As I remember, it was pretty awkward. GK – Didsy would come to this dancing lesson every week, Fridays I think. Most of the students were trying to improve their dancing skill. Didsy, of course, knew very well how to dance already, and I did not, so we simply put our arms around each other and stood swaying from side to side during much of the evening. I was really in love with her, and she was with me, I think. After Wilbraham, I visited her a number of times in Princeton, where she lived. But then she went off to college somewhere and I didn’t see her for a long time. Then she married. We kept in touch sporadically for many years … she was a friend for a big part of my life. TH – Ah, to be young and in love. GK –Yes. And it was all, as they say, very innocent, but I adored her. TH – Did you start writing poetry while at the Academy? GK – I started reading poetry at the Academy. I wasn’t writing it. I wasn’t even sure if people still wrote poetry. I had never seen or heard of a living poet. Kinnell continued on page 30

Fred Watts Bench
uring the 2011 Reunion All-Alumni Gathering, the WMA Community united to honor the dedication of individuals who
have given much to enliven and strengthen the school over the years. Mr. Fred Watts was the first to be honored for the many roles he fulfilled at the Academy, including “advisor, coach, teacher and friend.” Kent Karosen ’84 (pictured above right with Rodney LaBrecque and Fred Watts) provided a generous gift to create and install a granite bench in honor of Mr. Watts on the path to the library. Directly after the All-Alumni Gathering, nearly 100 attendees joined Head of School Rodney LaBrecque in thanking Mark and Rosalind Shenkman during a preview of the new Mark Shenkman Admission House. In honor of his 50th Reunion, Mark Shenkman ’61M generously funded the purchase of the privately held, federal-style house on Main Street across from Alumni Memorial Chapel. In the coming year the house will be transformed into the new admission house creating a “welcoming and home-like” first impression for prospective students and their families.

Admission/Reenrollment goes online! The coming months will bring a welcome change to our process here in the Admission Office with an upgrade to our software allowing online applications to feed directly into our database. Our administrative assistants will simply need to proof and accept the information rather than the current process of entering the information by hand. Families will see an improvement as well. Applicants will create an account through which they can check the status of their application, download necessary forms, and receive their
admission decision. Upon enrollment these accounts will be rolled into our Student/Parent community offering current parents the ability to check financial accounts, review Campus Store purchases and reenroll online. Contracts, permission forms, and tuition payments can all be completed online if desired. Easy access to this portal will be integrated into our website. The process to implement this upgrade has begun and is slated to be in place in time for our current students to reenroll in January.

EasternEurope from top to bottom
Mark Fischer, Mathematics Department Chair
hanks to the generosity of Lev and Cattee Hubbard, I was able to complete a trip begun in 1988, when, just out of college, I toured most of Western Europe but was unable to venture beyond the Iron Curtain. This summer, I flew to Helsinki and then took a ferry to Tallinn, Estonia, officially part of the Soviet Union from 1940 until the early ’90s. The country has only been part of the European Union common currency block for about a year, a goal most countries in that part of the world aspire to as a way to economic improvement. After fits and starts in the ’90s, E-stonia (as the locals sometimes slipped into conversation) has fairly successfully figured out capitalism. Their admission to the European Union, sooner than some other Eastern European countries, gives credence to this and was perhaps most evident to the tourist eye in that everyone seemed to be an entrepreneur. Next on the agenda was to check out the southern end of Eastern Europe. I flew to Bosnia and Croatia, two countries that were until the early ’90s part of the former Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia was a country which, though officially communist and aligned with the Soviet Union, managed a good deal of independence from Moscow. Josip Broz Tito, the former Yugoslavian leader, singlehandedly held a newly created country together from just after WWII until his death in 1980. After his death and the dismantling of the Soviet Union some ten years later, the Catholics of Croatia, the Muslims of Bosnia, and the Orthodox Christians of Serbia got into skirmishes resulting in a devastating war lasting from 1991 to 1995, and the negative effects still create a rather bleak modern Bosnia.
I took a bus to Mostar, Bosnia, a town that was more than 80% destroyed in the recent war. It is has a unique population, made up of a sampling of the many cultures of the former Yugoslavia. A woman who staffed the tourist office stated she believed what war perpetrators liked least about Mostar was its cultural integration. It was a town where Muslims and Catholics were friends and even inter-married. Whatever the reason, the pictures told the story of the war: the 26-meter high Ottomandesigned bridge built in 1566 was bombed (twice) and by 1993 the old center city was rubble. Croatia, on the other hand, has had much more economic success since the war ended, resulting in living costs comparable to the rest of Europe. This success has been built on tourism of which the beautiful Dalmatian Coast is the base. With reason, after the war Dalmatia quickly regained a good portion of the tourists it had lost. My travels ended with a last night in the walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia. For hundreds of years Dubrovnik was an independent city-state with such claims to fame as home of the first pharmacy. While significant damage was done in the early 1990s as Serbs and Croats fought, careful effort has been made to erase most signs of the destruction. On the Monday night I was there, the place was packed with tourists, city wall to turret. Fascinating how a town built in the 1300s had survived and adjusted through wars, regimes, and various economic systems to once again become a relevant player in our world, this time as a tourist destination.

Kent & Brian
We keep Kent Karosen ’84
them forever with us
n the evening of September 10, 2001, I received a phone call at home from a good friend of mine who was chief of staff for a Democratic candidate in the following day’s primary. She asked if I would please make a point to go vote early before work to help the exit poll numbers on the noon news cycle. The next morning the lines were frustratingly long and slow at my local polling station, so I was late getting downtown for work. As I pulled up to the building in a cab, I saw the plane hit what has become known as the North Tower just below my offices at Cantor Fitzgerald, where I had worked since 1991 and was at the time Chief of Staff to the President of the firm. The horror I personally witnessed there at the World Trade Center that morning is too upsetting to detail, but suffice it to say that they are images that are seared into my mind forever. I had been through the 1993 bombing of our parking garage and had herded our people down the 105 flights of stairs in thick smoke on that day. Seeing how and where the Towers were burning, I had no illusions about survivors from our floors on 9/11. All 658 of our people who were in the office that morning died. That was two-thirds of the firm and more than 25% of those killed in the Twin Towers. As the events of the day unfolded, I learned that my friend and boss, Howard Lutnick, was alive because he had taken his eldest son to his first day of kindergarten that morning. His brother Gary, who was one of my best friends and coworkers, was killed. We also lost Brian Murphy, a fellow Wilbraham & Monson alumnus who worked with us at Cantor Fitzgerald. Brian was a good man and a good friend. Howard and I and the handful of surviving partners began formulating plans of action for the coming days and weeks. It became my job to organize and set up our families’ crisis center in a local hotel ballroom. The days that immediately followed were more than difficult and painful, but having survived and not lost a parent or child, a sibling or a spouse, it was my imperative to focus on the needs of our families. Shock, disbelief, and a “just keep taking care of what needs to be taken care of” mentality pushed me through each day. It also fell to my shoulders to put together a memorial service for those we lost at Cantor. It was such a close group of friends, family, and colleagues, it seemed only natural that we would gather together for a special memorial. The first was October 1, 2001, and we have continued that tradition every year since on September 11th. There were an estimated 4000
friends and family members at that first memorial in Central Park. Words of condolence were offered by prominent political figures, words of prayer were given from clergy, a choir sang, bagpipes played, and family members eulogized their lost loved ones. As time has passed, the service itself has evolved, much in the same way that life has taken those of us impacted by 9/11 onward. This year commemorating the 10th anniversary was a very different kind of service and was by far the most involved “production” I have ever put together. It was the product of many hard-working and selfless individuals who gave so much of their time, talent, and kindness to create what I believe was the best event we have ever done. Rather than a memorial, we called it “A Remembrance, Tribute and Celebration of Life.” Back in the beautiful and tranquil setting of Central Park, we had inspiring words from Secretary of State Clinton, the Archbishop of New York, other clergy, and family members. There was simply phenomenal music from the New York Pops orchestra and amazing, uplifting songs from Broadway stars Brian Stokes Mitchell & LaChanze, who is one of our widows, and the incomparable Carole King. However, the star of the show will always be remembered as the 12-year-old girl who brought the house down with her performance of the national anthem with the New York Pops. She is the daughter of one of my coworkers who was 2 when she lost her dad. It was not only a breathtaking vocal performance, but also a powerful symbol of how our lives have gone on and even flourished in the years since 9/11. Words shared this year sum it up: “Despite the passage of time, we will never forget those friends and loved ones who are no longer with us. It is because of our love for those we lost that we must do all we can to live our own lives to their fullest: to love deeper, to laugh louder, and to do whatever we commit to with passion and drive. It is with that spirit that we keep them forever with us in our hearts and that is why we are here today.” There are fewer than 100 of us still working at Cantor Fitzgerald in the New York office who were there before September 11, 2001. The company has come back and is bigger and more successful than ever. The families of those we lost are still now and forever will be part of “the Cantor family.” We will continue to gather together every year to share hugs and tears, stories and smiles with each other, although the time for elaborate productions may have passed. I am still a partner at the firm and am now in charge of special projects in the Office of the Chairman. Those of us that have been there through these last ten years definitely share a special bond. The tragedy of 9/11 and the loss of so many of my friends and colleagues has most certainly shaped my life and who I am today, but it has forever made me keenly aware of the preciousness of life and the true value of those you love.

Janet Sweeney remembers her father
have been thinking long and hard on what to say about my father. What does one say about their father who has been such a major part of their life? Where do you begin to describe someone who has meant so much, not only to me but to so many, many others? How do I describe this man who was always larger than life itself? My father graduated from American International College in Springfield in 1941. He lived in Springfield and commuted by thumb or took the bus to Cambridge as he attended Harvard University for his master’s. His first teaching job after completing his education was at Monson Academy where he taught English and was chairman of the English Department. Not only was this his first teaching job, he was also a newlywed. He and my mother lived in an old house right on campus in Monson with the students. Both of them loved their five years at Monson Academy. There were so many memorable stories about those students who were so very close in age to him and the good times they shared. He not only became their teacher, he became their friend, confidant, and basketball coach.
Monson, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Spanish literature at Brown University in 1949, then went on to Harvard to emulate his professor, Philip Sweeney. Mr. Pizzitola tried to enroll in the secondary education classes that Harvard offered so he, too, could be a teacher, but there was no room. He enrolled in Harvard Business School instead. The reason I am telling you about Mr. Pizzitola is that he went on to have an extremely exciting and successful career on Wall Street. My father and Mr. Pizzitola remained friends and stayed in touch over the years. Quite a few years ago, Mr. Pizzitola started a generous scholarship at Wilbraham & Monson Academy in my father’s name. Quite amazing the profound affect my father and his teaching had on Mr. Pizzitola considering he was in his class for only four months!
One of those stories was about a student he had at Monson Academy named Frank Pizzitola. Frank was a young man from Springfield who sought to get the best education that Monson Academy could offer. My father always spoke of how bright Frank was and what a good basketball player he was; he also had very sharp elbows. It turns out that the world got in the way of Frank’s education, namely World War II. When the war ended, Frank continued his education. After graduating from

remember history are doomed to repeat it.” The Economist rephrased this as “… those who misinterpret the past are doomed to bungle the present.” I met my boyhood hero, Thor Heyerdahl, at The Explorers Club in 1985, and we became long-term friends. By that time, my former roommate from Wilbraham, Terry Vose, had been diving with the late Peter Throckmorton in the Mediterranean on several pioneering underwater archaeological projects, and all of us were members of The Explorers Club. I acquired a magnificent motorcycle, a Ducati 900cc Dharma SS and toured Europe, including the Amalfi Drive in Italy, where I never got out of second gear. I developed a reputation at The Explorers Club as someone who was comfortable with exotic machines and was invited to join an expedition to Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic, as the resident snow machine mechanic. Another trip to the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay followed.
There, the official history of North America unraveled. Henry Hudson did not discover Hudson Bay; it was on maps a century or more before he got there. The Belcher Islands were not named for Captain Sir Edward Belcher. They were on French maps as “Isles du Roteur,” an archaic form of the French verb “to belch” 50 years before Sir Edward was born. I’ve spent the intervening years studying these issues. The Life after the Academy results will be published next fall By Carl Schuster ’60W in a book entitled Henry Hudson and the Bastard Map.

Harrington Pawtucket, Rhode Island. He credited Trustee Charles Greenhalgh (of the Greenhalgh Gymnasium) for the “miracle” of intervening in his education and bringing him to Wilbraham. Galway paid tribute to the teachers he had at Wilbraham, particularly Roger Lincoln, and the impact they had on him. In the great tradition of commencement speeches, he also offered several pieces of very good advice to the Class of 2011; among the nuggets were: • Don’t waste time (except when exquisitely pleasurable to do so) • Have great ambitions, but don’t ever think that success justifies everything • Be aware of the suffering of others – as well as your own – and learn all you can from it • If you are ever able to give help to someone in a way that might transform his or her life, as Charles Greenhalgh did for me, understand that you may never know how it all turned out; you may never be thanked, but you must do it if you possibly can. Galway ended the speech with his poem “It All Comes Back” about his son’s misfortune with a birthday cake. (You can find Galway’s speech at http://www.wma.us/uploaded/Parents/Kinnell.pdf). But, except for a brief chat as we loitered in the lobby of Rich Hall, there was no time to talk during that busy weekend. So Galway and his lovely wife Bobbie graciously invited me up to their farmhouse in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont to continue the conversation in the form of an interview for The Academy World. On a quintessential Vermont midsummer day in Galway’s “office” – a cozy workspace in the back of a work shed with walls of books on three sides and windows facing the Connecticut River valley and the beginnings of the White Mountains – we talked about his days at Wilbraham Academy, baseball, girls and, at the very end, poetry.

Kinnell TH – So you started writing poetry at Princeton? GK – At Princeton I met my classmate W.S. Merwin (now Poet Laureate of the United States) and two great American poets who were teaching poetry there: John Berryman and R.P. Blackmur. And there was a teacher in the English department there about 10 years older than I called Charles Bell. I took to him, and he became my closest friend, until his death not long ago. TH – If you were a high school English teacher today, what poetry would you have the students read? GK – It would depend on what I was reading myself at the time. If I was thinking that way, I might go to the poetry of the twentieth century that was neither rhymed nor metered, and find poetry that was not hokey or extremely cerebral. I would show them a few of the greatest masters such as Keats, Blake, Whitman, Dickinson, and probably many more of all stripes. I would see if I could get the students to dwell on the poems for a while, and I would send them forth to make their own discoveries. And I would go from there, wherever that might be. TH – So Robert Frost? Or an accessible contemporary poet like Billy Collins? GK – I met Robert Frost and I liked him, and he is certainly one of our greatest poets. But one has to be careful that reading him too early doesn’t set one’s horizons too narrowly. It might be easy for a young person to think that Frost was principally a poet of New England farm life of a hundred or so years ago. Billy Collins is a wonderful poet for this purpose, and students connect with him in part because of his peculiar deadpan humor. But of course, there is a whole world of poetry beckoning behind him that I would try to get to as well.

A Year of Accomplishments n Success with our major capital On behalf of the students, faculty, ventures: the new turf field complex,
and leadership of Wilbraham & Monson Academy, I extend a heart-felt thank you to the nearly 800 generous donors recognized in our 2010-2011 Annual Report. Because of your thoughtful philanthropy, WMA has increased the pace of growth and renewal. This is a year to be proud of everything we have accomplished! I thank you, donors and friends committed to the performance and vision of the Global School®, for making this one of the most successful fund-raising years in the entire history of the Academy.
Highlights: n $2,125,489 in total voluntary support – an increase of nearly 40% over last year! n Attendance of more than 400 alumni, parents, family, and friends at over 30 events held on campus and around the world.
the Shenkman Admission House, and classroom technology. n Exceeding our Annual Fund goal with support from a greater number of alumni. I also want to thank the scores of individuals who contributed time, energy, and in-kind support that led to dozens of tangible benefits for the WMA community – from new athletic equipment to Jazz music recordings for the library. Our students, families, and alumni continue to thrive as the Academy thrives. I hope each and every donor has a chance to visit campus and experience the vibrancy of today’s WMA: test out the new “smart” college-level graphing calculators every student is learning to use in the Math Department, watch a game on the

spectacular new turf field, experience a concert from one of our musical ensembles, or see the way scholarship support helps young people fulfill the promise of their lives. Every donor to WMA has a piece of those achievements. Thank you!

Carol Relihan ’73: Honoring Those Who Supported Her Education
hen Former Trustee Carol Relihan ’73 came to the Academy, she received the William H. Wilson Estate Trust Scholarship. “The scholarship not only enabled me to attend the Academy, it paved the way for me to attend Williams College and was the foundation of my Carol Relihan '73 successful career. When I was financially able, I wanted to thank the Academy for making my education possible, and provide the same opportunities I was afforded to a bright young person who otherwise might not be able to afford an Academy Education.”. In 1997, Carol created the John Francis and Bridgie Barrett Scholarship in honor of her grandparents who left Ireland during The Troubles and met in Springfield, Massachusetts. Her grandmother had only been to the third grade and her grandfather had been through the eighth grade, which was a good education in rural Ireland at the time. They were thrilled to make it to the United States and always stressed education as a priority for their children and grand children. “It seemed appropriate to me, since they encouraged me so much, to set up something that be in their memory. Like so many immigrants through U.S. history, they sought educations & better lives for their descendants.” Creating a scholarship fund at WMA is a great way to help today’s students, to create a legacy that will provide scholarship support for many years to come, and to honor a teacher or family member who has played a key role in your life. For more information on how you can leave a legacy at Wilbraham & Monson Academy, contact Director of Major Gifts Christina Cronin at ccronin@WMA.us or 413.596.9189. page
