Humans of Northwood: Amelia Brady ‘21 

“I am a four-year survivor from Lake Placid. Northwood has changed a lot during my time here, but it has remained a tight-knight family. It is such a unique place and I’ve loved all the traditions that come with the school. I came to Northwood to ski, and I am grateful to say that I started and ended my ski career at Whiteface. Having the opportunity to both train and learn at such a high level is so special. When I reflect on my time at Northwood, I will always remember hanging out in the living room with the girls, traveling to Austria to train, and walks to town.”

Humans of Northwood: Meggan Cramer ‘21 

I came to Northwood from Cicero, New York to play hockey at an elite level while also getting a topnotch education. This is my second year at Northwood, and it has been an experience I will never forget. I really loved the hockey program because I got to be with my friends on the ice every day and compete in the highest level of competition. Northwood has taught me how to manage my athletics and schoolwork appropriately and get everything finished on time. I am super excited to go to SUNY Cortland where I will be continuing my hockey career. What I will miss the most about Northwood is being with the girls every day and making unforgettable memories.

Students Share Spring Break Plans

After being at school for almost two months since our last break, many students are looking forward to spring break, where they can enjoy nice weather and relax stress-free. Students will be on break for two and half weeks starting March 25. The Mirror caught up with some students about their plans:

“I’m looking forward to spring break to get a break of the hard work we’ve all been doing in school. Especially learning online this past month, it’s nice to get a break before we can finally be in person again. While I probably won’t travel for anything other than State Championships for hockey, it’ll be nice to get outside and do things during the day I couldn’t do because of classes.”  – Rachel Hinkley ‘21 (Photo provided)

“I’m excited for break because the soccer team is traveling to Dallas, Texas, Phoenix, Arizona, and Las Vegas, Nevada during the time to play games. It nice to play so we can get down to business and I can make the most of my senior year while playing my best so I can find the best placement for college. I’m looking forward as well to spending the last weeks with my teammates before I graduate in warm weather at competitive soccer tournaments.”
– Calil Neme Filho ‘21 (Photo provided)

“I’m going to Canada for spring break with hopes that we can all come back and have graduation together.”

“My plans for spring break is to continue with my hockey training and getting better. I am also looking forward to going back home to Texas and spending most of my time at the lake house and on the water with my family.” – Madison Lawrence ‘23 (Photo: Mr. Michael Aldridge)

“A friend of mine, Jazzy, is coming home with me so we plan on biking around town and going to the waterfront in Burlington and window shop. We also plan on going to the UVM track to work out every day.”

“I am looking forward to going back home and eating some good food,”

Humans of Northwood: Mackenzie Hull ‘21

I live in Watertown, NY, but am originally from the Midwest. This is my third year at Northwood and I’m a senior forward on the girl’s hockey team. Northwood has truly been an experience I will never forget and will forever be grateful for. It has given me great friendships, strong academics, and competitive athletics. The teachers and coaching staff are amazing and are part of the reason for where I am today. The experience here has changed me as a person and has taught me many things I will be keeping with me forever. Next year I plan to attend SUNY Oswego where I will major in wellness management while playing highly competitive hockey.

Humans of Northwood: Ryan Cielo ‘21 

I am from Vernon, New Jersey, and attended a small Catholic school before discovering Northwood. This is my second year at Northwood, and I absolutely love it here. This school has given me the opportunity to play great hockey with some great teammates and fantastic coaching. This school has taught me that hockey is more than just a sport, it is a family.  

Northwood has also given me the ability to thrive academically with lots of resources and understanding teachers that are willing to do anything to help someone succeed. This school has allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and find my voice because I’m forced to speak up for myself and communicate with others if I need something to get done. This school has taught me so many valuable life lessons that I will carry for years to come. Northwood has helped prepare me for the future to attend a college majoring in biology and play club hockey on the side.

Humans of Northwood: Johnny Cielo ‘21 

I’m from Vernon New Jersey and I’m a senior here at Northwood. From the dorms, going to town, student activities, and sports, I’ve had so much fun. This is my second year here and I’ve created so many memories.   

Northwood has given me the opportunity to play hockey at a competitive level while getting a great hands-on education. My teachers and coaches have given me all the resources I need to do my best both on the ice and in the classroom. When I’m not playing hockey, I like hanging with everyone at the turf and in the dorms.  

Northwood had taught me many lessons and I’ve created so many great friendships. Next year I will be playing junior hockey and taking online classes. I’m excited to see my future that Northwood has prepared me for.

Four Northwood female students recently won recognition for their computing-related achievements. This is the third straight year Northwood’s girls have received such recognition. Fourteen girls have been honored in the past three years. 

The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing (AiC) honors 9th-12th grade students who self-identify as women, genderqueer, or non-binary for their computing-related achievements and interests and encourages them to pursue their passions. Award recipients are selected based on their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing, as demonstrated by their computing experience, computing-related activities, leadership experience, tenacity in the face of barriers to access, and plans for post-secondary education. 

The multi-tiered award structure includes Winner, Honorable Mention, Rising Star, and Certificate of Distinction designations at National and Regional Affiliate levels, serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and all U.S. overseas military bases. Regional Affiliate Award programs are hosted in 79 locations nationwide by NCWIT Alliance member organizations—a powerful, national network of universities, companies, non-profits, and government organizations working to increase the influence and meaningful participation of girls and women from every community. 

The Northwood School winners at the regional affiliate award level include: 

  • Anja Martin ‘22 – Winner 
  • Angie Castillo ’21 – Honorable Mention 
  • Nora Dawood ’23 – Honorable Mention

 I am a senior from QuebecCanada. I really love Northwood because in Quebec it is a much bigger school with bigger classes and when you are at school you have “school friends” then you go back home and kind of just forget about them where at Northwood you build friendships that will last forever. I really loved living in a dorm with the boys it was fun. I really loved my hockey experience at Northwood, what made it so great was having the opportunity to be coached by a great coach like Coach Chadd Cassidy. 

I am currently finishing school asynchronously and playing with the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the USHL. Online school is hard, as it gets later into the week when I get busier with hockey practice and games it is hard to find times for my homework, but I try to use my off day and get my homework done. 

I was fortunate to represent Team Canada last year at the U17 World Championships in Swift Current, Saskatchewan and Medicine Hat Alberta. I met new friends and it was really fun even though the outcome was not what we wanted; it was still a great experience.

Humans of Northwood: Ray Fust ’21

I am from Lussane, Switzerland. Northwood was a great experience; Switzerland was so different than North American’s style, meaning the way you guys do school, hockey and just everything. But it was good to come back to North America. 

I am currently finishing school asynchronously. Doing school asynchronously is definitely weird because we don’t get to talk to teachers, it is a lot of work because we are not in class, so we have to do most of it on our own. Right now, I am playing for the Chilliwack Chiefs in the BCHL. It is a lot different than my time spent on campus at Northwood last year. It is a lot more focused around hockey, most kids on my team have already graduated. It is a lot of time at the rink and you gotta love doing it. You spend more time with the boys at Northwood in the dorms and stuff where here we just see each other mostly at the rink. 

[Ray is one of the best hockey players in Switzerland and was selected to play on Team Switzerland this year where he comp.]  

I recently had the opportunity to represent Switzerland at the 2021 World Junior Hockey Championships in Edmonton, Alberta It was a fun experience. It was not the same without fans but at the same time it was still super cool. We did not get the outcome we wanted but it was still a great opportunity.
