"As I age, I have more time to reflect on the things that have most influenced my life. At Avon, I learned about leadership (dorm monitor, judge), self-reliance (Nimrod Club), the value of teamwork (varsity soccer), and the joys of hard physical work (Sugarbush). I believe that there is a strong need for a boys' school, and Avon has excelled in maintaining its place in that segment of private education. Avon gave me a great deal and continued to reveal its rewards even after so many years."
