Among many other things accomplished, the November board meeting was marked by a deep sense of gratitude and appreciation for all the trustees have done in recent years, including the Renaissance Scholars program that has energized our community and increased enrollment. Each trustee was presented with a handmade maple syrup pitcher crafted by Diane Echlin ’91, complete with maple syrup crafted in Marlboro, as a token of thanks for their generosity with their time, talents, and financial support.
“I go to class everyday genuinely excited about the possibility of what I might learn that day,” said Grace Hamilton ’20, a Renaissance Scholar from Virginia who presented the pitchers on behalf of the college community. “As I stand in front of you all today, I realize that it is you who are allowing me to be here, experiencing these incredible things. Thank you so much for granting me this opportunity.”
