Alumni Invasion!

The Island School has been lucky enough to welcome back so many of our amazing alumni over these past few weeks–it’s been an alumni invasion!

In February, Willie Drury (S’10) sailed into Triangle Cut with two of his friends and shipmates. The three of them have been sailing south since they left Annapolis earlier this winter and we were happy to have them on campus for a few days. We wasted no time putting them to work…

Grace Fowler (F’11) and Anne Vetter (S’11) became friends at Colby College and decided to make great use of their spring break. They escaped the never-ending winter in Maine and spent a some time with us on Eleuthera!

We welcomed our most recent visitor, Connor Boals (F’03), earlier this week. Connor works for CNN and is on-site doing a piece with Dr. Edd Brooks at Cape Eleuthera Institute. Earlier this year, Connor worked with The Island School to produce a feature for the “Wish You Were Here” series CNN ran. In addition to having the opportunity to reconnect with The Island School campus, Connor also caught up with fellow F’03 alumnus and Island School mathematics teacher, Catherine Klem!

Island School on CNN’s “Wish You Were Here”

CNN is doing a series of videos called “Wish You Were Here” and has chosen to include The Island School! CNN asked adventurous people all over the world to send them video of their daily lives to get a glimpse of the different ways to spend a day at the office. Thanks to F’03 alumnus, Connor Boals for making the connection. Check out the video here!
