Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy as a champion of courage, compassion, and equality.
We, at Hopkins, had the honor last week to speak with and learn from a refugee family from Syria who are the focus of a Pulitzer Prize-winning non-fiction cartoon series. We also welcomed back to campus Michael Sloan, a former Hopkins parent, who is the illustrator of the Welcome to the New World series. Today, the Daily Nutmeg featured their visit and exhibit in the Keator Gallery. The exhibit is open to the public next Tuesday through Friday from 10am-3pm. You can read the Nutmeg feature at: http://bit.ly/Nutmeg-Jan17.
The campus is encased in ice, but our roads and walkways are clear thanks to our incredible maintenance team at Hopkins. Thanks to their hard work, we were able to return to school and enjoy this beautiful day.
I appreciated having the opportunity to spend my morning volunteering with Hopkins parents at the @ctfoodbank mobile pantry at the Door of Salvation Church here in New Haven.
We were honored to welcome back Ali Fasano ’95 this morning to deliver our annual Veterans Day address at Hopkins. Ali served ten years in the Marine Corps with two tours in Iraq. Hearing her speak about service and sacrifice was powerful and incredibly moving. Thank you, Ali.
In our 360th year, we are proud to introduce Hopkins 360, a strategic plan that honors our rich history and cherished traditions, and focuses our energy and attention on the challenges that will define our vibrant present and shape our promising future. View our plan at www.Hopkins360Plan.com.
Championship Week at Hop continued last night! The Varsity Girls Volleyball Team defeated King for the FAA title. Our student section, in spiritful attire, rushed the court to celebrate with the team. #gohopct
Congratulations Hilltoppers! It was great to see so many students, faculty and staff out at the far field yesterday rooting on our FAA Champions. I’m looking forward to today’s FAA Volleyball Championship match at 4:30 in the gym. See you there!
So proud of our students as they join @columbushousect ’s fight to end homelessness in CT!
