Jarvis Hunt ’10

Sixth Founders Award Recipient – 2010

Founders Award Jarvis 2010 036Jarvis Hunt devoted 38 years of his professional career to Applewild School.  He joined the school in 1958, just a year after Applewild opened its doors, and helped shape the school’s character from the very start.  In addition to teaching science, he served as acting Headmaster, Assistant Headmaster, and Science Department Head.  He directed the academic component of Applewild’s Summer School for many years.  He was instrumental in the production of theProspector yearbook, and he took Applewild’s annual all-school Photograph.  To colleagues and students alike, he was a mentor and respected friend.  He inspired a generation of students with his enthusiasm for learning.

Jarvis was educated at Phillips Exeter, Harvard University and Boston University where he received a graduate degree in Psychology.  He worked in counseling before joining Applewild.  He retired to Orleans, MA with his wife, Judy.  He continues to teach science today to adult learners in various settings on Cape Cod. He is also the parent of alumni Jarvis “Jay” Hunt, III ‘75 and Christopher Hunt ’76. Jarvis has continued to support Applewild over the years, participating in various award ceremonies honoring his former colleagues, celebrating our 50th Anniversary at the Applewild Gala and “A Day at Old Applewild”, and serving as a member of our Board of Visitors.

Remarks by former faculty member, Clarence Rabideau
“When I received the postcard from school about today’s Founders Award ceremony that honors Jarvis Hunt, it was like a short trip into the past. The three photographs on the front brought back a lot of memories. And one photo seemed very appropriate for today because it shows Jarvis with the Parade of Horribles. The other two show Jarvis/Jeremy carving the turkey at the Lower School Thanksgiving Feast and lastly a photo of Ken Ansin lighting the bunsen burner in a science class. I’ll speak a little more about some of these photos of Jarvis’s life at school a bit later. And by the way Kelly, thank you for asking me to speak today about one of my favorite colleagues.” Read entire remarks…

Founders Award Jarvis 2010 017Remarks by Head of School, Chris Williamson
“Starting in the spring of 2005, Applewild began honoring people who have been very important to the school’s history. Once every year or two ever since, the school nominates a candidate and the Board of Trustees affirms a recipient of the Founders’ Award. The Founders Award is named to capture the notion of a strong foundation and recognizes people who have made a sustained difference to the school’s progress and development. That may hearken back to the founding of the school, as the recognition of Nancy Bullock and Persis Laverack did, or to important periods later in the school’s history, such as the recognition of Jay Crocker, Al Stone, and Ron Ansin.” Read entire remarks…
