Albert Stone ’07
Albert Stone was honored as the third recipeint of the Founders Award on Friday, April 27, 2007. The celebration was held in the Alumni Center for Performing Arts with all students, faculty and staff, and also trustees, and members of the Stone family. School Head Chris Williamson opened the ceremony by acknowledging the community service our current students participate and the recent Parent Independent School Network (PIN) Community Service Award that Applewild received for this commitment to service. Bill Marshall, long time Head of Applewild School, delivered remarks about Al’s association with Applewild, as a parent, Board President, trustee and honary trustee. Bill’s remarks included singing a couple of lines from a song! Clarence Rabideau presented Al with a Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of all current and former faculty and staff. Jamie Hoff, Chair of the Development Committee, formally presented the Founders Award to Al. Al accepted his award by telling the students a story from the book called Three Questions. He concluded, “As you ponder the meaning of this story to you, think about your teachers at Applewild who every day spend their best time with you, helping you to learn. Think of the ways you can spend important time with those persons near you and how you can help them. And you too will find your own answers to Nikolai’s three questions.”
