Enjoy the Things, For They Are What You Will Remember
A home is only defined by its importance to you. The white buildings of Fenn grace the green lawns and towering oak trees that separates this graceful landscape from the slow moving Concord River. The building of bright white and forest green have a mysterious yet comforting quality. The turf and green lawns creating so many hours of fun. The green, the home to mini foot ball games, tag, hide and seek, and so much more, is the writers desk of imagination, it is the combination of youth, creativity and joy. The turf, home to long fought battles of boys striving to be men, playing their hearts out and leaving it all on the field. These places are centerpiece of a Fenn Career, the buildings, home to nurturing curiosity's, the green, created for joy, and the turf, a pinnacle teacher which shows kids perseverance, dedication and teamwork.
When I first stepped on the Fenn ground, I was little, too little to appreciate what I was seeing. But know, reflecting on my experience I realize how much those buildings taught me. They taught me how to have fun, be respectful, and constantly seek answers. The green doors which adorned the white walls taught me there was always a new opening when everything seemed over. Every day walking into Thomson Hall was waking up in a world of imagination. It was an artists studio, for a bunch of small rambunctious children, which never quit. Our ideas hummed and our excitement fueled everyone in an infectious wave, a wave which I believe came from the building which was the heart and sole to all the excitement that never ended.
They say to shut the door softly, but I know that the last time I will walk through those green doors, I will close them firmly, and I will have no regrets. I want to look back on Fenn's campus with appreciation and a never ending connection to those forest green doors and Snow White walls.
