  • Concord Academy Alumnae/i Making a Difference: Reunion Weekend 2015

    Posted June 9, 2015

    As alumnae/i began to gather on the afternoon of Friday, June 5, for the start of Concord Academy’s reunion weekend, there was talk of change. Time was one constant: for some, this was their 15th reunion, and for others it was their 65th. For some, the talk was of first-borns and, for others, of grandchildren, the transition to co-educational program at CA, a few wars, and a few social movements. Overheard were conversations that touched on all of these, but one theme emerged: of how the values that the CA alumnae/i community share began right here on Main Street and, for some, in the same classrooms. Of these values, the need to make a difference in the world was the constant.

  • Reunion Weekend Alumnae/i Panel: Women & Science

    Posted June 8, 2015

    “The conversation about women in science is one that we’ve been having here at school a lot recently,” CA Science Department Head Andrea Yañes-Taylor told attendees of “Women and Science,” a panel discussion featuring alums Nina Urban ’80, P’11, ’17 and statistical climatologist Susan Tolwinski-Ward ’00 held as part of CA’s annual Reunion Weekend June 5-7, 2015. The Saturday afternoon conversation, which Yañes-Taylor moderated, took place in the Student Health & Athletic Center dance studio and drew an audience that included alums from the classes of ’01 and ’80, CA teachers past and present, and Head of School Rick Hardy. The discussion covered a range of topics: the challenge of achieving work/life balance, the power of mentors, and the impact that conversations at CA – both inside and outside of the science classroom – have on female students.

In the first event of a series for the CAService initiative, about 100 students worked alongside 150 alumnae/i, faculty, families, and guests in the gym on Sunday afternoon to pack meals for Stop Hunger Now, which provides food and aid to undernourished populations.
