John Gale Hun Spotlight: Reverend John Lane ’62

For Reverend John D. Lane ’62, The Hun School has always been about family. Rev. Lane's uncle, the beloved Dr. Chesebro, was headmaster at Hun from 1951-1976. Subsequently, a nephew, a niece and six grand nephews and nieces have graduated from Hun. Rev. Lane's desire to honor his family connection to the School and give back to the place that helped shaped his life, inspired him to join the John Gale Hun Society.
Rev. Lane arrived at Hun in 1958 as a scholarship student. He flourished under the guidance of the faculty.  He enjoyed his time on the rowing team with classmate and former Headmaster Dr. Byer ’62 and continued rowing at Amherst College for two more years.
After college and the Peace Corps, Rev. Lane returned to teach English at Hun for one year (1968-1969) before entering The General Theological Seminary in New York. He served as rector at Episcopal parishes in Charlotte, North Carolina; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Staunton, Virginia.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school.  Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
