The prizes were awarded at a special virtual ceremony on May 20.

Brian Lilly, a Northwood graduate of the Class of 1985 and current member of the Northwood School Board of Trustees, is the CEO of Lilly Broadcasting which boasts multiple television and radio stations, a cable network, and digital platforms in the U.S. and the Caribbean. His passion for entrepreneurship helped to bring the Innovation Hub at Northwood School to fruition, and he has sponsored a series of prizes for the next 10 years to encourage and inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs at his alma mater.

The Startup Prize: This $2,500 prize is given to help a student take their business idea from a theoretical model to an actual startup. Presented to Will Donato ’21.

Best Pitch Prize: This $2,000 prize is given to the student who produced the best entrepreneurial pitch during the academic year, showcasing their writing, editing, and technological aptitude. Presented to Addie Castillo ’21.

The Expansive Thinking Prize: This $2,000 prize is given to the student who best exhibited expansive thinking, that is, thinking that moves one beyond their immediate personal context to allow them to look at a problem from different perspectives and explore different possibilities. Presented to Carson Hall ’22.

Social Innovation and Design Thinking Upcycle Prize: This prize is given to two students who developed a unique way to upcycle (reuse in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original) a product and then produce the winning pitch to develop it. The $1,750 prize is presented to Andrew Mazza and Haley Donatello ’21.

Cum Laude Inductees Announced at Virtual Ceremony

14 students were added to Northwood School’s chapter of the Cum Laude Society in a virtual ceremony on May 20. The Cum Laude Society is the single highest form of academic recognition at Northwood School.

The objective of the Cum Laude Society is to promote learning and sound scholarship in secondary schools.

Humans of Northwood: Ellie Colby ‘21 

I grew up in Lake Placid, and after attending the local elementary and middle schools here I was ready for a change. I chose Northwood for the opportunity to meet new people from around the world, and for the abundance of opportunities the school offers both inside and outside of the classroom. After being here for four years I could not be happier about my decision to attend. In my time here I have met some of my best friends, created lifelong memories, and have grown as a person. One of my favorite things about Northwood is that students are encouraged to try new activities. While I arrived as a freshman with a love for horseback riding, I am leaving as a senior who spends much time practicing yoga, all because of the school’s after-school activity selection. Besides horseback riding and yoga, I have also done volleyball, golf, and rec skiing, and have dedicated a lot of time to various Northwood clubs, including CARE and the Blue Key society. Although my time at Northwood has been great, I am excited to attend Boston College next year where I will begin a new chapter in my life. I will miss the living room gossip, being at a place where I know the names of nearly all of my peers, and most of all, I will miss attending an institution that makes me look forward to going to school in the morning. Northwood will forever hold a special place in my heart.

Humans of Northwood: Charlie Purcell ‘21 

I’ve been skiing since before I could walk, but it wasn’t until I came to Northwood that I found a passion for freestyle. It’s such a unique sport because there is no “right” way to do it. Every trick can be done a dozen different ways, and it’s constant learning and progression that made me love the sport.  

I came to Northwood because I was new to the area and going into high school. I took a shot at getting in and made it. I’ve loved my time here at Northwood. Every year has been unique. Northwood has taught me a lot: time management, discipline, and how to write an essay fifteen minutes before its due.  

I’m super pumped for college. I committed to Saint Mike’s the other day, and I really can’t wait to go.  

Something I am really going to miss about Northwood is the living room. The freedom of socializing and seeing my friends in a comfortable place every day is what brings Northwood alive.  

Something no one knows about me is I hate sparkling water. I think seltzer sucks. 

– As told to Meg Cramer ‘21. Photo provided. 

Humans of Northwood: Gian-Franco Rodriguez-Straccia ‘21 

My name is Gian-Franco Rodriguez-Straccia, and I am from Argentina. I heard about Northwood after being contacted by a Black Rock FC coach. One thing about me that has changed throughout my time here would be my mentality. Looking back at my time here five years from now, I will miss my teammates the most. My favorite memory would be when I first arrived here and met all my teammates and the students. My everyday routine, daily training, school, hanging out with teammates, chilling in my room, all the little things you do in a day here is what I will miss the most. Next year, I plan to either go to college or play professional soccer. 

– As told to Bo Solomon ’22. (Photo: Mr. Michael Aldridge)

Humans of Northwood: Elise Loescher ‘21 

I am a fouryear survivor here at Northwood. I lived in Germany and was exposed to Ski jumping. I am now on the Junior National Ski Jumping team because of the training I can do here at Northwood. As graduation is getting closer, I am looking to my future. I am planning of deferring from UVM and for this upcoming year I will be living in Utah to train with the rest of the JN Team. I am looking forward to the new experiences and goals that the future holds, but I will always cherish my friends and the memories that I have made at Northwood.
