"Welcome to Reflections, a weekly column that offers a window into the life, the culture and the soul of Collegiate School. Since August 2001, we've profiled students, alumni, faculty, administrators and staff. We’ve described our beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities. We’ve delved into the school’s rich history and honored the icons who, often under challenging circumstances, set the tone and provided the spirit that shaped the Collegiate of today. We’ve covered guest speakers, interpreted events, offered editorial opinion, and commented on current affairs. And we’ve detailed the compelling personal journeys of many who call Collegiate home. As Reflections has evolved, one truth, one theme has remained constant: Collegiate is truly a family school, and there is much that we do well. What we do best, however, is take care of each other. Thanks so much for reading Reflections. Thanks for sharing the Collegiate experience." Weldon Bradshaw
