When Trustee Warner Babcock ‘70 and his wife Trisha hosted a Williston Northampton gathering at the Greenwich Country Club on October 20, area parents and alumni representing Northampton School for Girls, Williston Academy, and The Williston Northampton School converged for a delightful reception. Current parents, whose children have been keeping them up-to-date on school happenings, and alumni and past parents eager to catch up on the many exciting things afoot found much in common to talk about.
As head of school attending my first such event, I was thrilled by the energy in the room, both for the place fondly remembered and the school as it stands now. More than that, I was struck by the powerful and positive memories that were shared of teachers and their transformative influence, and of friendships that have stood the test of time. I was more than happy to answer questions posed about future plans and current initiatives, and I am confident that those in attendance are a barometer of the good feelings and ongoing support for Williston that exist at large. Thanks again to the Babcocks for being such gracious hosts.
