St. Luke's Society and the American Red Cross held a campus blood drive on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
LTC (R) Eric Buckland ’73 says his time at Hotchkiss made him “self-reliant and self-disciplined,” and reinforced the critical relationship between effort and achievement. “It etched deeply in my mind the importance of mentors.” These lessons served him well during a 22-year career in the U.S. Army, including 15 in Special Forces (“Green Berets”). His last years in the military were spent in counterdrug operations, and he continued this work with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.
Three Hotchkiss faculty members were selected by the University of Chicago for this year’s Outstanding Educator Award.
For the third straight year, the Hotchkiss Speech and Debate Team defended its home turf and won the Top School award in a tournament against schools from around New England on Oct. 30.
Hotchkiss held its first Farm Week from Oct. 16-21 to educate and inspire the community to learn more about where our food comes from and how small decisions, like eating a local pear or choosing to compost, can make a big difference.
