The school’s statement is below:

Head Hockey Coach, Mark Morris ’77 to Retire – Steve Mallaro ’06 to Become Northwood’s New Head Coach

After one of the most distinguished careers in American hockey history, with extraordinary success at the prep, collegiate, and professional levels, Northwood’s Mark Morris will retire at the end of this season.

His successor will be the current Assistant Coach, Steve Mallaro. Both Morris and Mallaro are Northwood alumni, graduating in ’77 and ’06 respectively. In Morris’s first stint as Northwood’s Coach, Mallaro served as Captain of the first Northwood hockey squad to win forty games.

An outstanding defenseman at Colgate University, Morris played professionally for the New Haven Nighthawks and the Dallas Black Hawks before joining the coaching ranks as an assistant to Charlie Morrison in 1984. After serving as Saint Lawrence Assistant Coach from 1985-88. He was named Head Coach at Clarkson in 1988; in that role he led the Golden Knights to over 300 wins. After serving as an assistant coach on the Vancouver Canucks and Saginaw Spirit, he returned to Northwood for two years before taking the reins of the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs, and again won over 300 games. Before rejoining Northwood in 2021, he was an assistant for the Florida Panthers and Head Coach at Saint Lawrence University. In his most recent two years at Northwood, he has won over 60 games in just a season-and-a-half. Last year he was honored with a spot on Northwood’s Fullerton Wall, named after legendary coach, Jim Fullerton

His replacement, Steve Mallaro, says of Mark, “I follow in the ranks of many remarkable coaches and people. When Mark recruited me as a player in 2004, I knew I was in for a great experience. Mark’s mentorship in those and these more recent years showed me how much he cares about the development of players as people. His success stems from his charismatic leadership. He brings value and values every day. He has asked for my best and empowered me to give it. Having been married within the last year, I have also learned much from him about being a husband and father. I have been fortunate to have him in my life.”

Coach Mallaro also brings impressive experience as a player and coach. After captaining Northwood in 2006, he moved on to SUNY Oswego where he was twice named to the All-Conference team and voted Captain of the 2011 squad. After a year of professional hockey, he served as a graduate assistant coach at Manhattanville College, Assistant Men’s Coach at Suny Brockport, and Head Coach at King’s College before accepting the head coaching job at Albany Academy. In 2021, he joined the Northwood staff as an assistant to Coach Morris, who says of him, “Steve was the first person I thought of when I returned to Northwood. He models the qualities any player or parent would want in a coach responsible for a young man’s development as a player and person. As a player, Steve was all about team, the glue guy, a leader on and off the ice. As a coach, his example and loyalty to his alma mater are constants. Trustworthy and caring, he is a calming presence in conversation or while instructing. Steve studies the game and works tirelessly to better our program. He will continue to recruit quality individuals and maximize their hockey skills and personal strengths.”

Headmaster Mike Maher said, “Northwood has been blessed with some extraordinary coaches in the last ninety years. In his time here as a student and coach, Steve Mallaro has demonstrated that he is ready to follow in the footsteps of Hall of Famers like Jim Fullerton and Charlie Holt and other great mentors like Coach Morris. We are thrilled to have him on board.”

Students Honored with Underclass Awards and Cum Laude Society Induction 

The Underclass Award Ceremony was on Thursday May 12th. Students from the junior class won several awards. There were also several college scholarships given out to students who have been excelling the classroom. It was great to see so many Northwood students get so many fantastic awards, Northwood community is also extremely appreciative of the opportunity granted by several universities. 

Ms. Jill Walker is the chairperson of Northwood’s Cum Laude Society, an honor society which recognizes Northwood’s top juniors and seniors.  “The Cum Laude society is the highest honor society available for students in private schools,” Walker said. “To be inducted, students not only have to be top of their class, but we also consider what courses students are taking and how their effort grades are. This year is one of the biggest classes we have had and as always, the kids inducted are incredible students and people,” Walker added. 

Dean of Academic Affairs Ms. Carmichael described how students are selected for the subject awards. “We have a meeting with all the teachers who teach in each subject area, and we discuss who deserves the award. Each teacher may nominate a student,” said Carmichael. “The award isn’t just based on performance in class; the teachers consider what students have done outside the classroom and how much effort they are putting into the subject.” Carmichael noted that choosing award winners can be difficult. “The discussion can get heated at times, because teachers are deeply passionate about the students they nominate.”  

Carmichael highlighted one student who has shown extreme growth and excellence. “The English Learner Prize was given to Jeremy Tsang ‘23 this year. When I look at the classes he was in when he first arrived here and compare them to what he is doing now, I am inspired, Carmichael said. “He is now in AP English Literature and is succeeding, I am enormously proud of his growth.” 

Director of College Counseling Mr. David McCauley described the college scholarships that were offered. “Colleges look to partner with good academic secondary schools and give these scholarships hoping that these schools can find the right person for their college. St Lawrence University is a super generous college that offers the opportunity for our students to win up to a $36,000 per year scholarship. We use this opportunity as a vehicle to guide students to great universities that suit them. Just because students win this award doesn’t mean they are going to be accepted, but if they apply and are admitted, they are then granted the scholarship they won. In most cases, students get into the college they win the scholarship from,” McCauley added. The Northwood community is extremely grateful to have the opportunity to earn these scholarships. 

Overall, the underclass awards ceremony was a tremendous success, the winners of the awards are listed below. Northwood congratulates the students who won these prestigious awards and encourages those who didn’t win an award to work hard in their studies and win an award in the future.

Mr. Roger S. Loud (1935 – 2022)

The Mirror learned today of the passing of legendary math teacher Mr. Roger Loud, who retired from full-time teaching at Northwood in 2018 and has led Northwood’s Math Lab on a part-time basis ever since. He was a teacher and school administration for 64 years.

Northwood will share a commemoration of Mr. Loud’s many contributions to the the school early next week. In the meantime, we share this “Exit Interview” by former staff writer JoJo Rosenbluth ’19 and the official obituary released by Mr. Loud’s family.


Roger Sherman Loud, 86

Roger Sherman Loud died April 29, 2022, at home in Lake Placid, NY.

He was born June 14, 1935, in New York City to Ruth Putnam McAneny Loud and Sherman Loud.

Roger received his formal education from the Dalton School (NYC), Fountain Valley School (Colorado), Phillips Exeter (1952), Amherst College (A.B. – 1956), and the University of Cincinnati (M.Ed.).

He began his long career in teaching at the Hillsdale School in Cincinnati in 1958, teaching history and math, and was Headmaster in 1969-70. He moved to Lake Placid, NY in 1970, joining the faculty of North Country School/Camp Treetops, and becoming Director from 1982-92. Then he began a lengthy stint teaching math at Lake Placid’s Northwood School, finally retiring in 2021 at the age of 86. He served on the Board of Trustees at Gould Academy (Maine) for six years in the 1980s, and also on the Board at North Country School/Camp Treetops from 1994 to 2022.

Roger’s greatest passion outside of family and teaching lay in the mountains, especially the Adirondacks. He was an Adirondack Forty-Sixer, #125, completing twelve rounds of the High Peaks, and he co-led summer hiking/climbing expeditions to Wyoming, California, Oregon, Washington, and Alberta in the 1970s. He strongly believed in connecting children to the beauty and challenges of the wilderness. He co-founded Camp Gawee in 1964 and began the Treetops West program in 1974 – both designed to immerse teenagers in intense mountaineering experiences.

Roger is survived by his wife, Patricia; his four children: David Roger Loud, of New York City, (Pedro Porro); Jennifer Vann of Longmont, Colorado; Patrick George Loud of Virginia Beach; and Brigit Loud of Colchester, Vermont; and his beloved grandson, Bodie. He was pre-deceased by his sister, Margaret Faron.

Gifts in memory of Mr. Loud would be warmly received by North Country School/Camp Treetops in Lake Placid.

At Roger’s request, there will be no calling hours. A celebration of his life will be scheduled at a later date.

Prom Committee Chooses Theme for 2022 

Get your fur on the dance floor! All the “fursonas” will be on display at Northwood’s prom.

(April 1, 2022) Members of the Prom Planning Committee today announced the theme of the 2022 Northwood Prom. Director of Student Activities, Ms. Carrie Donatello, was joined by student planning committee members on stage at school meeting for the big reveal, which was received with universal acclaim from the students assembled. 
The theme of this year’s prom is “It’s a Furry World!” Students will be encouraged to dress as their favorite furry animal.
The choice of prom theme reflects the global furry fandom phenomenon. According to Wikipedia, “Furry Fandom is a subculture interested in anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics.” Examples of anthropomorphic attributes include exhibiting human intelligence and facial expressions, speaking, walking on two legs, and wearing clothes. Many students already have a well-established fursona, while others will create one for the event.
“I hope couples choose to go as the same species. I think it will be so much fun to see pairs of chipmunks and gerbils dancing their tails off at prom,” said committee member Jazlyn Lluberes ’23 (fursona: rabbit).
Bryan Jones ’22 (fursona: cat) is also on the prom committee, and he said the competition for themes was intense. “There were so many clever ideas,” Jones said. “My personal favorite was ‘Under the Sea,’ but there was a lot of enthusiasm for “2020, too” and “Mask-erade,” added Jones.
The dinner will be catered by local restaurant Dancing Bears and beloved pet shop Man and Beast. “There will be a DJ, photo booth, and yard games like Spike Ball and Corn Hole. A trailer with restrooms, including a litter box, will be brought in for the event,” said Abigail Sinclair ’23 (fursona: fox) a prom committee member.
While many students already have their own costumes, some will need to buy or rent their furry suit, and that could get costly. Senior Angie Gonzales (fursona: wolf) isn’t happy about buying her costume. “I don’t know how I feel about this theme,” said Gonzales. “I’ve outgrown my wolf costume and now I need to spend a ton of money on a new furry costume right before I go to college. I don’t need this expense.”
Pendragon Theatre in Saranac Lake, the longtime home of ADKFurries, has a limited supply of costumes for rent.
It’s widely believed that Mr. and Mrs. Donatello will wear the two Northwood Husky mascot costumes as they chaperone the prom, but the Donatellos couldn’t be reached for comment before deadline. Their son Drew Donatello ’24 (fursona: puppy) was not enthusiastic about the idea. “Eww. Gross,” he said.
When asked about the wisdom of wearing bulky and hot costumes to a dinner dance at a time known to be warm, Ms. Riffle (fursona: muskrat), also a member of the prom committee, said, “I guess we’ll rent some fans.” When pressed about what attendees will do during dinner, Riffle said, “We’ll take our heads off. Wait, furries can do that, right?”
It’s a Furry World! The 2022 Northwood School Prom will take place under a giant tent on MacKenzie Field at Northwood School on Thursday, May 19. See Ms. Donatello for tickets.
