Reaccreditation at Waterford

I gave a talk last week about the cultural influence of Waterford’s early days. It was a time of tremendous creativity, of great innovation, of deep belief and of courageous vision. In 1980, our founders Nancy and Dustin Hueston conceived a school that began as a learning laboratory and prodigiously evolved into the best college preparatory, liberal arts educational experience in Utah.

Why Waterford Upper School

Because big growth happens in small settings, in through small moments, under the warmth of individual care and in the presence of great mentors and models. Because at the moment when adolescents might want to disappear into a crowd, to be seen as just the same as all their peers, and to dismiss adults as out of touch, your child will be seen and known by teachers they will respect and trust.

Brandon BennettOne of the easiest things for adults to appreciate is also one of the hardest for kids to learn: that everything is connected, that one thing leads to another, that nothing happens in isolation. A teacher’s job is to help students recognize, appreciate, and build on the connections that are everywhere around them.

Head of School Andrew MenkeFive years ago we began a tradition of Class XII lunches to initiate the process of self-reflection as our seniors complete their journey at Waterford. As you might imagine, these meals affirm the amazingly powerful experience enjoyed here at Waterford.

Andrew Menke gave these remarks at Waterford Night on December 16.

Good evening.

Thank you for being here. We come together tonight to enjoy each other’s fellowship and to say thank you. Waterford Night is a wonderful tradition begun eight years ago to thank you, our most loyal donors.

Before we begin, I would like to acknowledge two people who have given so much, certainly in the spirit of this evening, of their time, wisdom, courage, and vision. With us here this evening is Waterford’s founding family, Nancy and Dusty Heuston.
