Over the weekend, the Gould Nordic team competed at The Maine Event XCX, a NENSA Rollerski Race that was held at Black Mountain of Maine this year. Gould had a spectacular showing on the podiums. Here’s a breakdown from Nordic and Biathlon Program Director Ben Kamilewicz ’95:
Gould’s best asset is its people. People build meaningful, enduring relationships here. It’s true for students but equally so for faculty and staff. Gould faculty are connected by a shared purpose and bound by decades of time-honored traditions. Experienced, innovative, and creative teachers mentor newcomers and pass on the lessons and methods they learned when they arrived. They eat meals together daily, encourage each other in the classroom and on the sports fields, have helped raise each other’s children, traveled the globe together, and ventured into the Maine woods and mountains for orientation and Four Point trips. A life at Gould is a life well lived, and seeing the familiar faces of former Gould educators on campus for former art teacher Jim Owen’s memorial service earlier this summer served as a reminder of just how much legacies live on at Gould today.
Art teacher Lauren Head P’01, ’05, ’07, ’09, ’21, and former art teacher Jan Baker P’05 took the opportunity to contemplate these deep connections and recognized his mentorship’s profound impact on generations of Gould students and faculty.
