Last night we recognized all of ourstudent-athletes for their dedication and hard-work this spring season, with special congratulations to those who were commended for their exceptional athleticism and leadership.
On Friday, May 17th, Tilton School celebrated its 155th Prize Night. This tradition began in 1864, and just two years after the school was burned to the ground and rebuilt across the river to where Knowles Hall is located today.
Tilton School’s community serviceprogram has been active for over two decades. Currently led by Julie Caldwell (Director of Community Service, World Languages Department Chair, Spanish Teacher), students have the opportunity to participate in the program as their afternoon activity. Weekly, they help at the New Hampshire Veterans Home, assist in the classrooms of various area schools, volunteer at the local soup kitchen, and more. Each year, all students get the opportunity to participate in community service through all class or all school events.
Matt Dawson, a coaching veteran with more than 17 years of experience, will join Tilton School as Head Coach for the Varsity Football team starting in the Fall of 2019. Dawson is known for his intuitive leadership skills andkeen ability to develop and mentor young professionals to achieve their maximum athletic potential.
On Friday, May 4th, 20 members of the junior and senior classes were inducted into the Tilton School chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS). During a ceremony held in Fred Andrew Smart Chapel, May 2018 inductees introduced the newly appointed members. Four students were also inducted into the Cum Laude Society.
