Opening Convocation & Installation of the Headmaster

Under beautiful skies on Sunday, September 8, Cushing celebrated the 2013 Opening Convocation and the Installation of our twelfth Headmaster, Christopher J. Torino. The event was a wonderful way to kick off the new academic year and to mark what’s sure to be an amazing new chapter in Cushing’s remarkable history.
It was especially meaningful to have three former Cushing Headmasters in attendance as well: James Tracy, Wink Lampe, and Joseph Curry. Many thanks to the Trustees, parents, alumni, and guests who traveled to Ashburnham to take part in this memorable day.
