On August 23rd, DCD welcomed back our newest Alumni to campus at the Class of 2018 BBQ. We heard stories of summer adventures along with enthusiasm for the next chapter in our graduates' academic journey.
It was only the second day back at school, but it didn’t take DCD students and teachers long to get their groove back on! As part of DCD's Alumni Assembly series, Adam Rochelle’09 and Sam Rochelle’12 returned home to their familiar stage to play some tunes for the DCD community in a recent all school assembly.
Last Thursday, current high school sophmore and DCD '14 alum Wil Linell was Thayer's starting pitcher for its varsity baseball game against Dexter. One of Dexter's star players is Wil's good friend and former DCD '14 classmate, Colin Mann. Unfortunately, Colin was sidelined due to a shoulder injury so the two did not get to faceoff. Wil and Colin co-captained DCD's 2014 baseball team.
Mentors and Writers: Many places and many directions!
As part of DCD’s Alumni Speaker Series, students were treated to a visit from Kate Woodworth, writer and member of the DCD class of 1965. Kate spoke to the audience about the importance and value of mentors and how a special mentor here at DCD inspired her to become a writer.
