在去年秋天的东海岸摆动工作 小团圆 took place in the heart of the Bronx. Head of School Gary Boehm, Associate Director of 校友 Relations & Annual Fund Weezie Foster Stoddard '82, and husband Blake Stoddard were drafted into service by Erickson "EB" Blakney '83. As part of a "College Prep Day," the MVCDS team worked tirelessly with students of the DreamYard Preparatory School - a public high school in the southwest Bronx with a focus on the arts. Blakney, Boehm, and the Stoddards provided guidance to about 30 teens on college essay writing and they conducted mock interviews. DYPrep is affiliated with The DreamYard Project, the largest arts education provider in the Bronx, co-founded 20 years ago by Tim Lord '83 and Hotchkiss classmate Jason Duchin. "EB" serves as a trustee on DreamYard's board alongside former MVCDS Assistant Headmaster Charles P. "Charlie" Lord. And the world continues to get smaller. Actor Ethan Hawke recently joined DreamYard's board. Hawke stars in the new film "Good Kill", where Tyler Boehm’01 worked as the Associate Producer.
