Faculty and staff recently gathered in the Putnam Family Arts Center's Class of '45 Hall to celebrate members of the community who are beginning their 20th year of service to St. Mark's.
Head of School John C. Warren recognized Maria Galvin of College Counseling, Maria Freitas of Facilities, and Jason Eslick of the English Department, and presented each with commemorative Simon Pearce glass bowls and framed photographs, which will be hung in the school's main corridor outside the Hinkle Room.
In their remarks to all in attendance, both Galvin and Eslick credited the community at St. Mark's as their reason for remaining two decades. "It's our students and all of you [who] have made this milestone a really easy one to make," exclaimed Galvin.
"In short order, St. Mark's became like a family to me, and that has been true throughout," remarked Eslick, who noted the myriad ways members of the St. Mark's community supported his family over the years. "I hope we can continue to work together as colleagues, friends, and family."
Congratulations Maria, Maria, and Jason!
