Giving Thanks

As we embark upon this Thanksgiving and holiday season, we are faced with questions about gratitude. What are you thankful for this holiday season? We asked a few students and faculty members here at White Mountain to see what they are thankful for this holiday season.

This holiday season, I am thankful for the all the people that have supported me throughout my life such as my family, friends and all the teachers. At the same time, I am also thankful for opportunity that I have of studying at the White Mountain school!  -Yalda Mauj ‘19

This holiday season I am thankful for many different things. But their are a few things that I am most grateful for. I am grateful that I go to school in the mountains and have the opportunity to enjoy them. I am grateful that I have a house to live in, that I don’t need to worry about when I will eat next and that I have the luxury to be able to spend time relaxing. I am also very grateful that I can spend time with my family and friends. These are a few of the many many things that I am grateful for this time of the year as well as each and every day. -Banner Cole ‘18

I’m grateful for all the food, preparation, and general effort that went into my Thanksgiving meal! -Sarah Abbott ‘17

I’m thankful for all the wild spaces we have up in the North Country in New Hampshire.  I’m thankful for all the open places, the valleys and mountains that we can get out and explore together from campus.  – Eliot Taft, Assistant Director of Admission and Communications

I am thankful for the support system I have access to.  -Mariama Lemon ‘20

I am thankful that I get to go to work every day doing something that I love and working for something that matters to the world. -Shane McElhiney, Academic Dean

Community, family, food, friends, work, the list can go on and on. As the holiday season begins, I try to remember this and have a grateful heart.
