Student Spotlight


Meet Kevin Yang '16

The last bell on a Friday afternoon has rung, and Kevin Yang is thrilled. Surrounded by dozens of other students in the Seevak Room, Kevin has been planning this afternoon for months. Last year, he founded the Biology Club to share his love of the subject and to give himself and his peers the opportunity to explore careers within the field ... and the response from students is just what he’d hoped.

Senior Capstone Synthesizes and Refines Skills

Alma mater is one of our nation's few schools - public or private - offering interdisciplinary senior capstone experiences. Students develop advanced research, analysis, writing and presentation skills, while exploring topics that span disciplines. Student projects, presented on April 9 and 10, gave voice to a diverse range of interests, from app development to the African-American experience at BLS. The Senior Capstone course is made possible in part by Deanna and Sidney Wolk ’53 and family.

BLS Classrooms Going Global

As most of our students were heading into April vacation, BLS classrooms were popping up around the globe! China. Nepal. Eastern Europe. France. Spain. Italy. Students and faculty learned about the history, language and culture of these areas firsthand. We are grateful for the support from the BLS Clough Center for Global Understanding which provides significant student scholarships that make these experiences a reality.


Points of Pride

Thank you to everyone who responded to our January question: Can you name the BLS graduate who is honored with a statue in Boston's Public Garden and who inspired others “To look up and not down; To look forward and not back; To look out and not in; and To lend a hand?" The correct answer is: Edward Everett Hale. And the winner is: Katherine McLean '85. Congratulations!

May question:
Can you name the BLS graduate — an internationally-acclaimed pianist/featured Carnegie Hall performer — who has received citations for scientific achievement from the U.S. Senate and U.S. Secretary of Energy and who was the recipient of the first POWER-GEN Woman of the Year Award?

Participants should send responses — including name and class year — magna cum celeritate via e-mail. We’ll be happy to reward the first correct responder with a small BLS item! Note: Alumni may win only once during an academic year.

Visit the Points of Pride Contest webpage to see the answers to past questions as well as all of our proud winners.
