When former faculty members Steven and Judith Kahan Kampmann came to Blair in 1998 following successful Hollywood careers in writing, acting, and directing, the establishment of a video studies program at the School was not part of the original script. However, one plot twist led to another, and by the time the pair retired in 2010, Blair’s academic and after-school video offerings were thriving, thanks in large part to Steven’s and Judith’s creativity and dedication to the craft.
Amid a festive week of Commencement events, the Blair community celebrated another important milestone on May 25 as ground was broken for the Center for Innovation and Collaboration (CIC).

In June and July, veteran Blair faculty member Carolyn Conforti-Browse ’79 co-led a sports exchange program that took 10 students from colleges around the United States to India, where they focused on leadership development and cross-cultural awareness.
