In the midst of homework, tests, papers, and the usual rush of the holidays, it is easy to lose sight of the larger world and those who are far from home. But Madeleine “Maddy” Stern ’14 (Northampton, MA) and Bennett “Ben” Wheeler ’14 (Longmeadow, MA), both class officers, made time to remember American troops unable to be home for the holidays.
Maddy and Ben are organizing an effort to send over 400 holiday cards to soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. Students at the school have undertaken an effort like this in the past, and Maddy and Ben decided it was time to revive the tradition. Maddy said, “We thought this was a great idea, especially at the holidays.”
