College alums and the nonprofit Prospect Mountain Association (PMA) recently completed their purchase of Prospect Mountain in Woodford, Vt., 21 miles north of Williamstown. This purchase has ensured that the nordic ski team will continue to practice on the mountain.
Greg Crowther ’95, a former member of the cross-country team, exemplifies resilience and dedication. After a storied running career at the College, he went on to pursue greater distances, eventually becoming the USA National 50k Champion and recordholder as well as the USA 100k Road Champion.
Last Saturday, the College marked the start of the 2018-2019 academic year with the annual convocation ceremony in Chapin Hall, which included the awarding of this year’s Bicentennial Medals. Four alums received the medals, given each year since 1993 for “significant achievement in any field of endeavor.”
The 2018 recipients of the Bicentennial Medals were John Walcott ’71, Cheryl Robinson Joyner ’85, Michael Wynn ’93 and Shoshana Clark Stewart ’02.
