In the spirit of “always getting better” that Nobles espouses for all school programs, two new service initiatives stand out. You might have already noted the Graduates Council collaboration with “Meals of Hope,” which packaged ten thousand meals on the Milton/Nobles weekend. It was so great to see an intergenerational event like this when grads are already on campus to support their favorite Dawg team. We loved seeing familiar faces of current students, alums (and their cute kids!) working side by side for the public good.
Another recent inaugural event began a new tradition for the Squash team. In concert with “Squashbusters” three Nobles players served at the Boston Food Bank in the morning of Saturday November 17, and then hit the courts to play a round robin contest together with 6 other independent schools from the Boston area. Representing Nobles were Sarah Riley ’13, Ryan Smith ’14, and Stephen Monrad ’15. The group can lay claim to having prepared 6000 pounds of food for shipment to local families.
These initiatives went so well both groups are already talking about making them annual events. Congratulations to both groups for adding major service projects to their already packed schedules. Time is a treasured commodity. The time given to those who need you is one of the reasons we are indeed “getting better all the time.”
