Young alumni from the classes of 2017-2020 gathered online for a virtual morning back at MBS on Friday, January 8.
The morning began with a quick welcome from Head of School Peter Caldwell before the recent graduates went off to a class of their choice. The alumni could choose from a variety of classes including: Constitutional Law with Eddie Franz, Film Scoring with Dr. John Girvin, Introductory Latin with Dr. Amanda Gregory, English 11 Honors with Darren Lovelock, and Mathematical Analysis Honors with Natalie Marone.
After class, the young alumni got a “behind the scenes” look at how All School Meeting is working virtually this year thanks to faculty members Ben Krauss and Nik Marmo.
“I chose to participate this morning because my academic and co-curricular experiences during my time at MBS have shaped who I am,” said Anika Buch ’20, a freshman at Princeton University. “I'm a firm believer in not forgetting those who have helped you along the way. Being there this morning was an opportunity to return — albeit virtually — to a place filled with teachers who have played an instrumental role in shaping my academic path.”
“MBS, to me, means community,” Buch continued. “Even though we're squares on a screen right now, we are, and will always be, held together by empathy and a sense of community. And, to me, that transcends any screen.”
Thank you to all young alumni who participated. We look forward to offering this event again next year!
