Headmaster for a Day

On Nov. 9, Cushing Academy installed—briefly—its 13th Headmaster, Jackson Stoever ’18. Jackson’s parents bid on the “Headmaster for a Day” experience at the Celebrate Cushing Auction back on Oct. 23 and Monday was the day!
Jackson began his day at the 12th Headmaster’s house with eight of his friends, having a full breakfast catered by the Academy’s amazing dining staff. We’re pretty sure Mr. Tornio doesn’t eat like that every morning! For the rest of the day, Mr. Stoever was chauffeured around campus—often joined by his friends. He greeted potential students and their parents here for the Admissions Open House and met with the Academy’s senior administration team to answer questions. Asked what he’d want Cushing’s extended community to know about the Academy, he answered, “What a great second home Cushing is and how happy the students are at Cushing." We hope all of our students feel the same way. He ended the day at Mr. Torino’s table at our last all-school dinner of the year.
Jackson was back to his normal schedule the following day, but the Academy is definitely better for all of his hard work!
