2022 First Quarter Academic Awards

At the Academic Awards Assembly on November 18, 2022, Assistant Headmaster Michael Nerbonne delivered the following remarks:

Several years ago, while attending a debate tournament on the campus of St. Paul’s School, we were assembled at the end of the day in their Memorial Hall. In the lobby of this beautiful building, I read an inscription on a plaque which was placed there in the spring of 1951 on the occasion of its dedication. I have been so moved by the words of this dedicatory plaque, that every fall while attending the annual debate tournament, I find my way to this building just to read it again. I wanted to share these words with you this morning on this occasion, just one week after we have celebrated Veterans Day. The inscription reads:

“We are met here today to dedicate this building in honor of the boys of this school who served in the Second World War and in memory of those who gave their lives for their country…captains, commanders, lieutenants, pilots, seamen, privates in the ranks-they were boys here one day, and so in this beautiful place, in this quiet corner of New England ‘endlessly the dead go up and down’. Had we but eyes to see, we could trace their footsteps beneath these trees, along these shaded walks, among these gentle hills. Had we but ears to hear, we could detect the sound of their hurrying footsteps in the long corridors, of the catch of their oars across the water, of their skates over the black ice of the pond. Their faces have felt, as ours have felt, the touch of the soft snow aslant across the wide white fields; their feet have known the crackle of ice in the frozen ruts of the country roads. They are forever a part of the great brotherhood…. the thousands who have gone before, the thousands to come. They are a part of ourselves. Thinking of them, we pray God that, at long last, there will be peace, but if there is not peace, may He grant to the sons of these men their devotion and high courage.”

This inscription beautifully and powerfully honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. And it does so by reminding us that that these men were once boys with common, every day, even routine human experiences before they were called to service. It also appropriately captures the beauty and tranquility of our country, which men and women have had to defend over successive generations. We know when we read or hear these words, that we truly have something worth defending in this nation and that these sacrifices were not made in vain.

One week ago today, junior Ben Goffredo sang an absolutely beautiful rendition of our National Anthem and senior Landon Bailey delivered an eloquent and moving address at the Needham Veterans Day Commemoration. Just like the plaque on the wall at St. Paul’s, Landon’s words reminded all of us of the sacrifices necessary for the preservation of a free nation. Landon honored his best friend and fellow Arrow, Kristian Nordby, who, as many of you know, is a freshman at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Landon said about Kristian: “Having known him for so long, the decision he made to eventually serve our country wasn’t surprising. He has always been one to want to give everything for those around and closest to him.”

Landon concluded his beautiful speech with these words, addressed particularly to the veterans in the audience: “This day as a whole is a celebration of the service and sacrifices you veterans have made, but the gratitude that I and so many others have for you goes far beyond just one day. Every veteran’s story is different, but what all of them have in common is selflessness, service, and sacrifice. Whatever the reason was to serve, all you great men and women put your own individual pursuits aside to fight for and protect everyone else.”

I want to thank Kristian Nordby for his service and dedication, Ben Goffredo for his singing, and Landon Bailey for so eloquently capturing the essence of Veterans Day in his spectacular oration. May all of us seek and cherish the “devotion and high courage” of so many who have sacrificed for the preservation of liberty. Thank you and God bless.
