All About the Snow

Steve Ascher hands Camille Hartley
the Snow Pool Snowball Trophy
For about a decade now, math/science teacher/meteorologist Steve Ascher has hosted a Snow Pool to predict the first day of snow on campus. Today, Camille Hartley received the coveted snowball trophy for correctly calling our first day of snow.

"I feel psychic," said Hartley.

Fortuitously, Janet Hardy (mother of SBA's Elise, '14), manager of the U.S. Army's Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, was on campus today to talk to our student-athletes about how a love for skiing and snow put her on the career path that led her to study snow and ice for the U.S. government at its Hanover, N.H. laboratory.

Hardy showed students satellite images of polar ice melt and discussed how students can find gainful employment by pursuing their passions. Her presentation came about thanks in part to a student-led effort to create a guest-speaker series on campus. Senior Brian Francis worked with Hardy and campus administrators to bring about a presentation which would coincide with a planned visit to campus. On behalf of the entire SBA community, The Fighting Marmot thanks Mrs. Hardy for her fascinating presentation.

Janet Hardy addresses the student-athlete body at All School Meeting today
