Dear Alumni & Friends:
Rolling into February, LA is a winter wonderland, wrapped in four feet of snow after three big storms in less than two weeks. Buildings & Grounds and the dining hall staff have been working through the night -- and sometimes spending the night -- to keep the community fed and functioning.
Also on a roll were the ten finalists for The Judith French Poetry Recitation Competition. In its 21st year, our annual junior rite of passage held its finals on Wednesday in an all-school assembly. See the winning recitation here.
Speaking of rolling, and as is common in schools today, many seniors apply through either early or rolling admissions processes. Accordingly, about a quarter of the class already knows where they are heading to college next year and almost three quarters of the class have been admitted to at least one college.
This week, I have been on a roll myself, on the road in Denver, San Francisco, and Los Angeles -- reconnecting, reminiscing, and bringing people who love LA together, one of the most inspiring parts of my job. In Denver, Ryan Chase '93 helped gather the troops at the Wynkoop; in San Francisco, I met with LA graduates, and in Los Angeles, trustee Jay Ackerman '85 opened up his home for our annual "LA in LA" gathering. Check out Check out LA's Facebook page (scroll down) to see a few pictures from the trip.
Another inspiring part of my job is hearing from so many people after I send this newsletter, so please do keep those replies coming.
All the best,
BTW: Before we know it, Reunion will be rolling around, and many of you will, I hope, be making your way to campus. We are already planning another eventful weekend. The Athletic Hall of Fame Committee has been hard at work, and I am pleased to announce our second group of inductees, the class of 2015:
1965 Tennis Team
Please join us on June 6 at 3:00 p.m. at Reunion 2015 for the induction ceremony in the Richardson-Mees Performing Arts Center.
