Proud to be a Husky

I write to you from Haverford College in suburban Pennsylvania, where the majority of my classmates were educated at expensive private high schools, and where I am constantly reminded of my gratitude to The Morgan School for preparing me to stand with those students on an equal academic footing.

The people of Clinton who voted in favor of education budgets while I was at Morgan have empowered me to compete academically with some of the most talented students in the world, and I am proud to say that I will be voting “Yes” for education by absentee ballot. I am proud to be voting “Yes” for the great work of inspirational teachers like Alan Samet and Chris Luther, and proud to be voting “Yes” for the Morgan Music Department, which does an exceptional job with the relatively meager resources it’s given.

I am endlessly proud to be a Husky, and I urge my fellow Huskies from the class of 2014 to join me (by absentee if necessary) at the polls on May 13.
