No Monday Blues: Ethanne Waldo Retires after over 28 Years of Joyful, Steadfast Service to Rowland Hall
Thursday, December 6, was Ethanne Waldo's last day in a position she described as "tailor-made for me." A lover of details, organization, and learning, she always dreamed of working in schools, and when Rowland Hall called again in the fall of 1990 with a job offer, she was thrilled. A once temporary assignment turned into a career supporting the Admission and College Counseling offices. She will be dearly missed.
Running can be a lonely sport, particularly for high school athletes pursuing an advanced career. Rowland Hall's cross-country and track and field coach Mark Oftedal knows the situation all too well, having watched his son Eli—a 2015 alum and elite runner who now races for Colorado State University—endure many solitary training sessions. So when he met Carson Burian last fall, Mr. Oftedal recognized what the talented young runner was facing. "I told him, 'You're in a difficult situation, at a small school with a small team, training at your level.' I knew he would be off on his own quite frequently."
Troy Price, Rowmark Ski Academy's beloved junior program director since 2010, in May added national accolades to his already long list of accomplishments. U.S. Ski and Snowboard named him the 2018 Development Coach of the Year, one of only two top coaching awards they bestow annually.
