Groton Grants Support
Summer Experiences

Ten Groton students worked around the world this summer with the support of grants from Groton School. Funding from both the John Endicott Lawrence 1927 Global Issues Scholars Fund and the George H.P. Dwight 1945 Internship Fund this year supported student experiences at schools abroad—one in Botswana and the other in Thailand.

Eliza Lord '19 and Montanna Riggs '19 used the Lawrence grant to spend three weeks at the Maru a Pula School in Botswana, where they taught marimba to middle school-aged students, played with the school's marimba band, and studied physics. The idea for this summer experience took root after Eliza, an experienced marimba player, saw the Maru a Pula marimba band perform at Groton in 2016. continued

Last Month's Question
Congratulations to Karen Brown, P'19 who correctly surmised that 34% of those who watched our Prize Day livestream in June viewed it on a mobile phone rather than a larger screen.
