Visits from Alumni Parents

While writing this newsletter at the farm on Sunday afternoon, I just took a short break to say hello to Tom and Sue Watson, the parents (and past CSA shareholders) of a recent Saul grad who were walking their dogs around the farm area. They were proud to tell me updates about their daughter Jessie who has gone on to continue her studies at Mansfield University. She is taking classes in aqua-science and fisheries management. Since she graduated, she has traveled to Alaska, worked with herding dogs and volunteered with the woodsman/woodswoman club.  Jessie was an impressive student at Saul, very dedicated and passionate about working with the animals here at the high school. It is great to hear how well she is doing and that she is applying the unique hands-on experience she gained here at Saul to her college studies. I am always impressed with the level of Saul-pride I see when alumni and parents stop by the farm, which they do on a surprisingly frequent basis!
