This episode of Caxology is all about gratitude. Listen to current students and parents share their thoughts on why they are grateful for LFA. It’s an episode from the heart you are sure to enjoy.
On October 9, 2020, LFA held its first-ever virtual Gala in support of four new campus faculty apartments. This episode is a follow up to the Gala, which raised over $850,000 toward the $1.8 million dollar project cost. Host Garry Sloan speaks with Tom Johnson, LFA’s Dean of Faculty, who co-hosted this year’s auction. Sloan also talks to Ben Wetherbee, LFA Associate Dean of College Counseling. Both Tom and Ben live on campus, and each gives their perspective on the Gala and the importance of on-campus faculty to the LFA experience for students. Listeners will also hear briefly from two alumni who were boarders during their time at LFA – Alex Zhou, Class of 2020 and Cedric Chong, Class of 2019.
In our first episode, we explore the namesakes of the Richards & Tremain Society - Eloise Ruthven Tremain (Ferry Hall principal, 1918-1945) and John Wayne Richards (LFA headmaster 1913-1941). Garry talks with Rita MacAyeal '87, Director of the Library and Archivist at LFA, to learn more about these stalwart figures of the school’s history.
