Now that Husky Nation has reunited once again, New Hampton School is eager to go All In for this 2019-2020 academic year. Prior to departing last spring, students voted on a theme to rally them through the following year. All In was the chosen motto to inspire the community to come together and move wholeheartedly into all of their endeavors.
What does it mean to be All In?
Student Body Co-Presidents Tulio Tagliaferri and Zola Braswell presented several themes to the students for a vote. The students felt that this theme most accurately describes what it means to be a Husky.
“To me, All-In means that someone gives all they have to something and that everybody is in it together. New Hampton has always been an ‘All In’ community, and I’m excited to see what that looks like this year from athletics, to dorm clean, and to the classrooms.”
– Zola Braswell, Student Body Co-President
Students and faculty alike are encouraged to apply this motto to all facets of their lives, on-campus and off. Whether you play in the game, cheer from the bleachers, act in a play, sit in the audience, help a friend study, or introduce yourself to a new member of the community, we hope you will do so All In. As a community, we will achieve greater when we come together and show up for one another.
In his Convocation remarks, Head of School, Joe Williams described that “For us to be All In…we need to trust one another. Trust that there will be mutual support, honesty, and buy-in to all that the New Hampton community stands for.”
Last week, new students and old students, athletes and artists, student leaders and faculty arrived on campus to take part in the many events planned to welcome the community back together. Old friends reunited and shared memories, and the seeds of new friendships were planted. Over the course of this year, students of all different ages, genders, races, and backgrounds from 24 different states and 30 different countries will be united over our theme. Each will define in their own way what it means to be All In.
