Hun School science teacher Anne Soos retires this summer, leaving behind a fifty-year legacy and thousands of grateful students in the Princeton area.
When Rachel Huffaker ’18 entered the Hun Upper School, she contemplated how best to fulfill her art requirement. “I don’t draw or paint,” said Rachel. Her father, Jim Huffaker, director of technology and an avid photographer, had given her a Nikon D32 camera. So, she decided to take Photography 1 with Hun’s teacher Stacy Collingham.
Recent Hun graduate Adam Wijaya ’18 watched a documentary in his Literature and Social Change class last fall about the white nationalists’ protests that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017. He was so affected that he decided to travel to Charlottesville himself to interview residents about the events that unfolded.
Propelled by her passion, Sophie set out to research NASCAR (The National Association for Stock Car Racing) and to experience driving the track herself for her Senior Capstone project. Sophie, who heads to Syracuse University in the fall, would like to work in the sports or music field eventually, so her project fit that bill.
When Michael Alonzo received the Faculty Prize at The Hun School 104th Commencement on June 8th, Junior Class Dean Ted Shaffner was not surprised.
On his first day of teaching at Hun in 2013, Mr. Shaffner heard Michael, then an eighth grader, speak at Convocation. “I thought, if this is the kind of student that we have at Hun, I’m in the right place,” he said.
