The Blue and Gray: Headmaster Lehman explains how students in the Class of 1887 used the School's colors to establish civility, empathy, and unity as core values at The Hill, and emphasizes the continued importance of practicing those principles today
Being OK with Being OK...For Now: A talk about being average - or less - during one's pursuit of excellence.
The Passionate Path: The pursuit of one's passions isn't always a clear road; it may not lead to popularity, acclaim or monetary success - but the opportunity and perspective one gains through that pursuit is a reward not to be discounted.
Resiliency in Defeat: Losing against Lawrenceville shouldn’t define a team’s season or their success. My teammates and I didn’t let it define us either. With an underdog mentality, we took the loss we were handed during L’Ville Weekend last year and turned it into something great.
Loneliness and Friendship: My daily struggling of being a Colombian at Hill and the friends that help me fight these struggles.
Girls Don't Belong at The Hill School: A reflection on coeducation, conversion, and changed hearts and minds.
Connections in the Real World. Each and every one one of us had our own unique story with a different plot. We must connect with one another on a deeper level to become characters in each other’s story.
Look at what's around you. How did you get there? My perspective on gratitude and appreciating your upbringing.
The Boys Aren’t Alright. Mr. Steinman, a not quite young and not quite old man, attempts to articulate what masculinity looks like and should aspire to in the 21st century.
Be You. It is never easy to be yourself. It is even harder when you’re told to be yourself, but don’t even know who that is, and are told by society that the self you think you are, is unacceptable. But the moment you accept yourself and who you are, everything will wash away because you are in control -- you have found yourself, and you are the beautiful you!
Building Learning Communities: The Individual and the Group. A reflection on the responsibilities of individuals within communities, and the concurrent responsibilities of maintaining individual integrity and honesty while being a responsible community member.
Pain is temporary, but a good story lasts forever. A tale of bears, ghosts, and blue jeans.
The First Day: How my personal experience from my four years at The Hill continues to influence my life and activities, principally through two (of several) legacies that I have carried with me since my graduation.
Truth in Love: There is a difference between Googling an image and looking at something in real life. And there is a difference between texting and talking, texting, and listening. These ideas are especially important when considering romantic relationships.
Belonging. How do we know we fit in when everyone around us seems so perfect?
It’s Never Too Late: How my transition to The Hill for my fifth form year taught me to take advantage of new opportunities.
Why do many of us feel the pressure to keep up with this image of perfection? Brene Brown said, “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” There is goodness that can come from transparent, authentic living.
Everyday is a new beginning. Appreciate where you are and embrace every first.
