Elder Buddy Visits

Lower school students had a special treat this week—spending time with their "Elder Buddies." 
The term “elder” doesn’t describe the age of the volunteers—at least not primarily. The term reflects the idea of Quaker Elders who are respected within their Meetings for strong leadership qualities, which are perhaps not completely unrelated to the wisdom of experience. This year’s Elder Buddy group draws from current grandparents, parents of alumni, and staff.
