  • Gwen Blackmer: handwork for grades 1–2
  • David Chan: chef
  • Katie Cobb: girls soccer coach and residential life staff

Senior Georgia Gieschen gave the welcoming speech to the high school campus, in which she spoke about her reflections on her high school years, her hopes for students newly arriving at HMS, and about the importance of each person’s role on the HMS campus:

I’ve come to see High Mowing as a woven masterpiece, intricately knitted with all types of thread, every color imaginable. During your time at High Mowing, you will add to this garment.

Have a great year, High Mowing!
