The thoughts and prayers of NMH community members are with the families of those lost on September 11, 2001. Four members of the NMH community lost their lives on 9/11: Stephen Adams, Dining Services; Christoffer Carstanjen, Information Technology; Frank Doyle '81; and David Rivers '79. They are remembered by a memorial tree planted on campus directly north of Alumni Hall.
NMH tied Deerfield 1-1 in our last scrimmage of the "pre-season". Eric Gooden scored NMH's loan goal off of a baseline serve from Dylan Hennessy. NMH had numerous chances in the closing period but could not find the back of the net. The team travels to Cambridge, MA to face BBN for a Friday 6 PM match. We'd love to see Boston area NMH Alumni, family, and friends at the match!
Back-to-school advice given by former MH principal Elliott Speer on this date in 1932: "For us all a new year is beginning. Whether it is to be a good year or not depends on us. You have come to a place of education, but there is no one here who can educate you. That is something you must do for yourself. What you learn depends on you. We of the faculty are here to help you -- to help you achieve every serious purpose that brings you here. You have joined a big team. We'll coach you as best we can. There will be stiff training, but if we make work into teamwork, it can be play.
