"Why Fit In When You Were Born to Stand Out?"

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” The quote is from Dr. Seuss, a graduate of my alma mater, Dartmouth College. Jill Howard, a first-year humanities instructor at Franklin Academy, shared these words of wisdom with students and teachers at the close of Community Meeting today, believing that Dr. Seuss’ attitude should motivate all of us to live distinctive lives that take full advantage of every personal attribute and talent that we have been given. In addition to the daily quote, another Community Meeting tradition is to recognize every birthday with a “Happy Birthday to You” serenade. Today, Ross Mesnick, one of our graduating seniors, turned 18, and we celebrated with Ross and his parents, Karen and Andy, who were on campus for the Spring Parents’ and Grandparents’ Days. As you can see from the photographs, Ross was born to stand out.
