Congratulations to Arianna S. '18 for being awarded the Joan Hall
Memorial Scholarship. Joan Hall was a pilot who flew at Great Barrington Airport. When she passed away last year her family (5 children) created a $1000 scholarship towards flight training at Great Barrington Airport where Arianna takes lessons. This past summer, on her 16th birthday, Arianna soloed a plane for the first time.
|Schrader Published In National Journal|
We are pleased to share that Head of School Teri Schrader has been published in Horace, the online journal of the Coalition of Essential Schools. Her article entitled "Translate, Transform, Transcend", about Watkinson's relationship to CES and what it means for Watkinson to be an essential school, will have a national reach. Watkinson is a lead school for CES and is one of only a handful of schools nationally to have that distinction.
