As Blair’s faculty and staff came together to celebrate a new academic year at the annual Opening of School Dinner on August 24, three members were honored for their continued service to the School. Following a reception at Sharpe House, the entire body of faculty and staff shared a meal in the Romano Dining Hall, where Head of School Peter G. Curran P’27 ’27 thanked the employees for their 10 years of service to the School and the success of its students.
To commemorate this milestone, faculty and staff members received wooden chairs engraved with the Blair seal. Joining this esteemed group in 2023 is Senior Associate Dean of Admission and Director of Financial Aid Caroline Wilson, who serves as assistant coach of Blair’s varsity swim team and dorm head of Locke Hall. History teacher Joanne Brandwood also celebrated a decade of working at Blair. When she’s not in the classroom, Mrs. Brandwood directs the annual Day of Service, serves as a monitor for the sophomore class and is a co-leader of the Blair Service Corps. As technology has rapidly evolved over the past 10 years, Assistant Director of Technology Sean Lex has ensured that Blair keeps pace, supporting the day-to-day digital operations of the School and keeping members of the Blair community connected.
