This Monday, Abigail Kelsen ’11 returned to campus for a brief visit and spent part of her morning inspiring current Foxcroft girls with her story of grit and determination. Abigail currently lives and works in Los Angeles where she has a career in Film Production Management. Her most recent project, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, is currently in theaters. Abigail met with a creative writing class, answered a few questions at Morning Meeting, and spoke about her collaborative work with the story and art departments during a combined studio art class.
Tina Barr, an award-winning poet, creative writing teacher, and member of Foxcroft School’s Class of 1973, returns to her alma mater Friday, January 25 as visiting poet for the 2019 Paul K. Bergan Poetry Festival, English Department Chair Anne Burridge announced last month.
The book Courageous Conversations About Race: A Field Guide for Achieving Equity in Schools challenges school communities to talk in honest and open ways about race and diversity, and — we are proud to report — Foxcroft women, young and old, took up that challenge last Friday with a moving two-hour discussion featuring two panels, one comprised of alumnae and one with current students.
Hosted by the Alumnae Council Diversity and Inclusion Committee, the event was entitled Courageous Conversations with Foxcroft Women: Working Toward Equality, and drew a substantial group of over 30 women to Roomies for what turned into a sometimes heartening/sometimes unsettling, yet honest and open dialogue. The panelists, who were women of color, of international origin, and/or members of the LGBT+ community, explored personal senses of identity and common experiences of community at Foxcroft, often drawing others in attendance into the conversation.
No grand conclusions were drawn or policy recommendations developed, but the very fact of including such an event in the Reunion Weekend program, and the joy of connecting with students and others from diverse generations, was monumental, many agreed.
At a special dinner Thursday, the Class of 2018 was officially welcomed into the Alumnae Association by Amanda Hartmann Healy '98, the President of the Alumnae Council. The dinner was attended by our seniors, the Board of Trustees, members of the Alumnae Council, alumnae, administrators, and faculty advisors.
