The past two weeks have been busy. I traveled to Portland to a Student Life Conference on Inclusivity with a team from Campus Life, visited alums in DC, and helped host a conference on learning differences in New Hampshire. In between, I came back to a school overflowing with good news and good people. On the various drives and flights to my external obligations, I had a chance to reflect on how thankful I am for the gifts that are everyday occurrences within this community.

"St. Johnsbury is an amazing town." So began Allen Hsieh's Chapel Talk in which he explained why he loved our school and this town so much. Allen talked about the beautiful and peaceful surroundings, the good times spent with friends, and the new opportunities and experiences he has been able to enjoy here. The student body erupted in a spontaneous standing ovation when he was done. This Chapel was one of the many emotionally moving moments shared in Fuller Hall recently, and this standing ovation was one of three such ovations given by our student body this week. The other two were given to people who represent those who make experiences like Allen's possible.

A recently discovered trove of 40 photographs of the iconic modern dance legend Martha Graham is on display at Catamount Arts through the end of the month. Captured by photographer Robert Fraser at at the Guild Theater in New York City on December 19, 1937, the photographs had been lost in the thousands of negatives comprising his collection. Marianne Handy Hraibi, dance instructor at St. Johnsbury Academy, was approached by Robert Fraser's son Douglas, and recognized the value of the images, which have since been added to the Martha Graham Foundation archives. The collection was framed by Academy arts department chair Rosie Prevost. The Martha Graham Dance Company will perform in Burlington on Friday, November 21.

When I joined the Academy in 1984, I immediately wanted to join the football coaching staff. My dad was a coach and had known Coach Burlingame, and I wanted to be part of the tradition that is Academy football. Bruce Johnson, the head coach at the time, regularly talked about this tradition and how the athletes owed something to the game and to those who had gone before them; he reminded them that they were part of something bigger than themselves.
