Transcript of Chapel talk given by Lee Burns '87, McCallie Headmaster, on December 10, 2015
On July 27th, I happily noticed on my calendar that I had a meeting with sophomore Benjamin Stipanov. I look forward to and enjoy meetings with students, especially ones that students take the initiative to arrange.
Benjamin brought in a large bag. I had no idea why he wanted to meet or what was in the bag, but I was curious.
“Remember what you said during your chapel talk last December?” he began. I did recall my chapel message, and I was delighted that he seemed to as well. I know from personal experience that teenage boys aren’t always apt to enjoy, appreciate and remember formal and sometimes preachy talks by adults, so I was surprised.
