The Holderness Girl's Nordic Team won the Sibley Award at the New Hampshire Coaches Series race last weekend. Over 40 teams from all over New Hampshire competed in two races and the Holderness Team took the overall.
In a field of almost 250 high school girls, they were anchored by top ten results from Amanda Vansant, Mae Whitcomb, and Olivia Lammivaara. Buzz Fisher and Gus Whitcomb also represented Holderness well with a 4th and 20th place respectively.
Albert Bierstadt, the German-American painter renowned for his landscapes of the American West, came to the White Mountains to capture its simple yet overwhelming beauty. What came to life through nearly a decade’s worth of work was The Emerald Pool, a massive oil-on-canvas monument to the natural majesty of a hidden swimming hole along the Peabody River in the Pinkham Notch. Recounting The Emerald Pool, Bierstadt said, “I never had so difficult a picture to paint, as this White Mountain subject the Emerald Pool; my artist friends think it my best picture and so do I.”
At Holderness we deliberately build community through the people we bring in and programs we support. Today I want to share one story about people who showed us what it means to be a mission-centered community and talk about one unique program that is hitting a milestone.
