This year, six faculty and staff celebrated milestone years of service with Blair Academy. At the annual Opening of School dinner on August 24, Head of School Peter G. Curran expressed his deep appreciation for the contributions of employees who have, for many years, dedicated themselves to moving the School’s mission forward and supporting students and colleagues.  

Troy Strunk, who has worked in Blair’s maintenance department for 25 years, received an original painting of campus in recognition of his years of service. Faculty and staff members who marked 10-year milestones received handcrafted wooden chairs engraved with the Blair seal. They include database administrator Harold Kay, language department chair Joyce Lang, Assistant Head of School for Strategic Communications Suzy Logan ’99, Acting Dean of Students Andee Ryerson and Dean of Admission Teddy Wenner ’96.

Mr. Curran expressed his sincere gratitude to the honorees for their commitment as all employees gathered at Sharpe House and in the Romano Dining Hall to celebrate the opening of the School’s 175th year.
