The CavChron

Adam McQuilkin ‘18 is a member of the senior class at Hollis Brookline High School and is pursuing his interest as a photographer and video producer through his participation in the CavChron program. McQuilkin has a deep-seated love of leadership and helping others, and he serves as the president of the senior class as well as a leader in a local Boy Scout troop. In what remains of his admittedly scarce free time, McQuilkin is a three-season varsity athlete, running cross country in the fall and track in the winter and spring. He hopes that his love for digital media production will enable CavChron to develop new ways of relaying information to the public. After high school, McQuilkin plans on studying electrical engineering with a minor in video production.

Dr. Phillip Andrew Rice, Patrick Bloniasz, and Matthew Barbosa stand together during a hiatus in the Honors Choir workshop last Wednesday. “The fact that the experience our choir shared potentially could be felt by performers all around the world is really all I could have asked for out of my work” said Bloniasz on his poem “Onsra” being adapted into a choir piece. His poem is based on experiences during a choir trip in the 2016-17 year and the feeling of “knowing a moment exists here and now, and may not ever exist again.”

148 runners leave the starting line at the first annual Sau41 2Run5k on Thursday, September 28th. The event benefitted UNICEF for Irma Kids, a charitable organization helping children and families recover from the devastation in Florida. As race winner Wilson Mason said, “the most rewarding part was knowing that we raised over $2000 for charity, so it’s good to come back to a community that wants to give back.”
