Hats off to two talented Hotchkiss pianists who recently won top awards. Kenny Zhang ’22 was the first prize winner as the Connecticut State Representative in the Music Teachers National Association 2021 Competition in Senior Piano.

Hotchkiss is proud to announce the establishment of the Hersey Scholars Program. This June, ten selected upper mid students will conduct archival research in history, politics, economics, and philosophy during a two-week residency program at Harvard. They will be the first high school students ever granted direct access to the vast array of archival materials held in the university’s libraries.
A pulsating Blue and White Mob descended the steps of Main Building early Saturday afternoon, Nov. 13, chanting “Let’s Go, Hotchkiss.” The gathering marks the official start of Taft Day, when students dress head-to-toe in blue-and-white gear. Some have an added touch of a painted paw print on their faces and others are covered in blue body paint. With the Hotchkiss held high, the brigade parades down to the playing fields to cheer on the Bearcats. View a gallery of photos from Taft Day here.
The Tremaine Art Gallery is pleased to present an exhibit featuring photographs by Theo Coulombe, an artist and photographer whose recent work features a series of emotive regional landscapes. Your View is My View: Landscapes and Collaborations is open through Dec. 18 to the on-campus community only.
As Veterans Day approaches, this special edition of Alum of the Month, featuring two former Navy SEALs, seeks to honor all alumni who have raised their right hand for the Oath of Office in service to the United States of America. Alex Pease ’90 and Quinn Fionda ’91 are two of five Hotchkiss alumni who have become SEALs, an elite unit that has participated in every U.S. conflict since Vietnam. Navy SEALs are one of a number of select military units.
