Landmark and Mitchell Say Yes!

I love the daily tradition of Community Meeting affirmations, especially when Byron Crozier, our College Counselor, announces successful college applications by seniors and postgraduates. Of course, there is always enthusiastic applause from classmates and teachers that conveys our delight, excitement, and congratulations. These moments also provide encouragement for underclassmen as they begin to think about collegiate opportunities.

Today, Michael Vitarelli and Matteo Caligiuri had their moment in the spotlight. Both boys have been accepted by Mitchell College ( in New London, Connecticut. Dr. Janet Steinmayer, the mother of Ben Guaglianone, FA class of 2008, is the President of Mitchell College, and the following Franklin alumni have graduated from Mitchell: Lindsay Beck ’06, Emily Graniero ’10, Alicia Wenzel ’10, and Melyssa Kaplan ’11. Allison Thurz ’14 is currently a student at Michell.

Michael has also been accepted by Landmark College (, and he is waiting to hear from Dean College ( and Beacon College ( Matteo has applied to Curry College ( in addition to Dean and Beacon.
