Wallach Family Military Scholarship
Wallach was motivated by his patriotism; by a desire to increase understanding between the civilian and military sectors of U.S. society; and by his belief that students who have been exposed to the life-broadening experience of growing up as the children of career officers will enrich the entire Hill community.
Meet The Hill School's Wallach Family Military Scholars
Matthew Flynn '25 arrived at The Hill in the fall of 2022 as a third form student and our fifth Wallach Family Military Scholar. His main sport is water polo, which he plays in the fall. He plans to participate in swimming in the winter to help stay in shape for water polo, and he will join the crew team in the spring, which will be a new experience for him. Outside of athletics, he is involved in the Motorsport Club, Pool Club, and Engineering Club. He also enjoys snowboarding and wakeboarding.
Matthew's father is Commander in the U.S. Navy and currently is an English professor at the U.S. Naval Academy. Matthew has lived in two countries and three states, including Maryland, where is family currently resides. He is thankful to his parents and the Wallach family for this opportunity to attend The Hill.
I’ve grown so much as a student and as a person at Hill. I’ve learned to work hard and the power of incorporating the word 'yet' into my thoughts when facing challenges and obstacles.
Cameron Born '24 arrived at The Hill in the fall of 2022 as a member of the fifth form. Prior to Hill, Cameron attended four schools in four years, most recently in Kentucky and Colorado, due to his father’s service in the military as a U.S. Colonel in the Army. The oldest of three siblings, Cameron’s interests include the Boy Scouts – he is a life scout who served as a patrol leader; DECA; lacrosse; and debate. In addition to playing lacrosse for Hill in the spring, he participates in the strength and conditioning program and plans to run indoor track in the winter. He also loves traveling and is an avid cook who enjoys cooking for his family and friends.
I love living and learning together in this community. The Hill is awesome!
We are deeply grateful to the Wallach family for the opportunity to be at Hill.”
