2 Introduction - 

Mr. Jim Womack 

ZOttf- ZOt? 

Coming to MBA's campus in the fall of 1979, 
with his Bachelor's degree from Davidson 
and his Master's degree in Art history from 
Virgiania Commonwealth University, Mr. 
Womack was the Art Department. Located in 
a small building behind the library, students 
had the opportunity to take AP Art history for 
credit or drop in and make art. Over the 
years under his direction, and with the 
support of different Headmasters, the 
program grew from a building shared with the 
Debate program to the building of the Davis 
Building and its renovation in 2015. 

The lasting impact of Mr. Womack extends 
beyond The hill to Nashville as a whole. From 
The Frist Art Museum to the Parthenon and 
Cheekwood, Mr. Womack has left his mark 
on the city, his unique sense of humor and 
insights to art and art history will be missed 
on The hill for years to come, but his legacy 
will live on in the program he built and the 
students whose lives he impacted. It is with 
great pleasure that The Bell for 2019 is 
dedicated to Mr. Jim Womack as he is "glad 
to graduate high school."

Life on the Hill 


From playing football beneath the Friday 
night lights in front of a roaring, painted 
army of classmates to observing stars in 
the Long Mountain Observatory on a 
peaceful night, Montgomery Bell Academy 
provides many opportunities for students 
to be involved in the community both 
academically and athletically. While many 
things at MBA such as Field Day are slowly 
aging into tradition, the school-wide theme 
for this year is innovation. And nothing 
energizes the theme of innovation like 
announcing plans for a completely new 
building to be built on the current Andrews 
Field. With many locally and internationally 
acclaimed speakers on campus each week 
covering a range of topics, from politics to 
entrepreneurship, students always have 
access to incredible resources to enrich 
their education beyond the classroom. 
These things make each day a great day to 
be on The Mill.

A Buzzing Summer 

In Keeping with the MBA tradition of constantly being 
busy, The Mill was buzzing with activity all summer long. In 
the past few years, MBA's summer programs have grown 
significantly, and this year was no exception. Borne of the 
programs included Time to Rise, the Wilson Bummer Classes 
(which included 10 different classes to choose from), Driver's 
Ed, College Counseling Workshops, Academic Prep Classes, 
the All-Bports Camp, and more. Not only do these camps 
benefit the MBA students by providing them with a chance to 
enhance their learning experience over the summer, but they 
also get the surrounding community involved with MBA, and 
vice versa. For the All-Bports camp and other enrichment 
camps, younger children and their parents get the 
opportunity to experience MBA. The students who help run 
the camps learn valuable teaching and leading skills. While 
the idea of learning during the summer may turn some 
students away, the Wilson Bummer Classes provide students 
with opportunities to learn interesting and valuable things 
they would not be able to address in the academic year. For 
example, one could learn about something that interests 
them, such as the history of Nashville, or more practical skills 
such as how to use Microsoft Excel or their graphing 
calculator. The MBA campus remained bustling throughout 
the summer, and provided many students and members of 
the MBA community with experiences they will keep with 
them for years to come.

Summer Travel 

Opportunities to visit numerous places and take 
advantage of a variety of trips in the summertime stand as 
one of the finest and most unique aspects of the MBA 
experience. Each year, students apply to go on various trips 
alongside their fellow brothers, provided generously by the 
annual donations of the Wilson family. The destinations for 
these trips include destinations such as Boston, Mew York, 
5t. John, Lithuania, Rome, and Wyoming among others. 
From sightseeing to studying, these trips serve to not only 
to give students the opportunity to learn more about their 
surroundings, but also to broaden their horizons and expand 
their knowledge of the world around them. 

Mo matter where they are, the students bring back no 
shortage of enlightenment and discovery. Different trips 
bring different memories that are sure to last a lifetime. 
These opportunities create friendships and learning 
opportunities which are too numerous to mention. 

"The trip was a perfect combination of work, adventure, 
and discovery" said junior Creighton Laub of his trip to the 
island of 5t. John. "Each day brought something new, and it 
was a lot of fun experiencing all the island had to offer with 
my friends".

Breaking Boundaries 

Each summer, through the generosity of the Warner and Wilson 
families MBA students have the opportunity to experience a 
variety of different cultures such as school life, sports, art, and 
traditions of other countries. These grants and exchanges are 
awarded to students who have demonstrated passions in a given 
field or a desire to immerse themselves in another culture. The 
Warner Exchange Program helps students venture out of their 
bubble to schools such as Eton and Winchester in the United 
Kingdom, Michaelhouse and Bishops in South Africa, Christ's 
College and Lindisfarne in hew Zealand, Melbourne Grammar 
School and The 5outhport School in Australia, Hutchins school in 
Tasmania, and the Raffles Institution in Singapore. By living with a 
host family in student housing, these students learn to adapt to 
the culture that surrounds them. The boys participated in 
activities such as sports like rugby and soccer, went on countless 
exploration trips, and ate copious amounts of food. However, the 
most important aspects were friendships that the students 
cultivated. The opportunity to experience the lives of different 
people and the activities that they engage in has a monumental 
impact on the students. Whether it be learning a new sport, 
eating different foods, or seeing magnificent sights, the MBA 
students always come back enlightened. However, none of it 
would be possible without the help of the Warner Eamily. 

The Wilson Grant Program has grown significantly over the last 
few years and offers students the ability to study in their chosen 
field in one of many places around the country and the world. 
These grants are used to take classes, workshops, or immerse 
themselves in a language. Grants are awarded in each area of 
studies, from History to Foreign Language to Visual and 
Performing Arts. Students take these lessons back to the MBA 
campus and build upon these experiences while sharing their new 
knowledge with others.

Arts on The Hill: 

& (y-'O'&'i-- -tm 

Mo matter where you look, there is never a 
shortage of artistic talent on The Hill. From 
theater to art, from choir to jazz band; the arts 
continue to be a staple amongst the MBA 
community. MBA thrives off the excellence and 
passion of the students within each 
department. The theater program debuted 
several shows with the likes of "Zombie Prom", 
"Antigone", "Argonautika", and many more, 
capping off an extremely successful year with 
the ever-popular 5 tudent-Di reefed One Acts. 
Btudent artists of all grades were honored for 
their achievements from both local and national 
competitions. Popular French graffiti artist Blek 
Le Rat came to MBA to intall six murals across 
campus. While he was here he worked with and 
inspired students to explore the arts in more 
depth. Both the Headmaster's Singers and 
Chamber Choir received perfect scores at the 
statewide competition, continuing their streak 
of annual excellence as well. Lastly, both the 
Wellington Band and the Jazz Band provided 
quality music for every occasion: events, 
concerts, assemblies, and everything in

Giving Back to Others 

On mpft Ttt// 

Service is an unspoken part of being an MBA student however, 
service isn't obligatory to any student. Instead, students and 
faculty choose to spend their valuable time giving back to the 
community. Through the tireless efforts of the Service Club 
leadership and the intrinsic motivation of students each year 
students volunteer more than 3300 hours of service to others. 
In every service project there is a passion to help out a fellow 
person, from serving food at a soup kitchen to helping build 
homes in the Dominican Republic. Students of all ages are 
encouraged to participate through teams, clubs, and grade 
specific projects. Service not only brings us closer to our 
communities but to each other. There are many different 
service groups across campus including Best Buddies, Task 
Force Dagger, and Second harvest. Each of these initiatives 
brings together students, faculty, and the greater Nashville 
community to make the world a better place. The studetns 
invlolved in these initiatives learn about leadership and how to 
bring together disperate groups to make a difference. A big part 
of our service opportunities come from the Service Cub, who 
worked tirelessly to present MBA priceless service 
opportunities. For the 2018-19 MBA Service Club, Joe Stevens 
served as president and Aditya Priyadarshi as vice president 
alongside the faculty sponsors Ms. Williams and Dr. Rader.

Introduction - 15 


This year, the Class of Z019 took control of one of the best 
student sections MBA has seen. Led by William Davis and 
Harrison Taylor, The Junkyard began their reign as the best 
student section in the state when the football team faced 
Wooddale in Tommy Owen. As the season continued, the team 
dominated the game over its opponents with immense support. 
With the support, the football team finished the season with a 
9-1 record with the only loss coming from MU5, where The 
Junkyard stayed to cheer for the team in the rain. With notable 
victories against Ensworth and Brentwood Academy, it became 
obvious that The Junkyard was making a difference on every 
play. The football team defeated Briarcrest in the quarterfinals, 
and planned to play Brentwood Academy in the semifinals. With 
a large amount of hype surrounding the game, The Junkyard 
encouraged everyone to show up and flood Tommy Owen. 
Despite the bittersweet loss, the student section was a great 
success for the year. The Junkyard showed the brotherhood 
that lies in MBA as it supported the football team throughout 
the good and bad times. The Junkyard continued their support 
beyond the football field and turned up support throughout the 
year from Basketball and hockey to Lacrosse. William Davis, 
commenting on The Junkyard's overwhelming support for the 
athletic teams, said, "We had a ton of fun supporting the team 
all year. It was hard work all year setting up the props, 
speakers...planning pep rallies but it was worth every second. 
Our main goal was to set ourselves apart from past student 
sections and I think we reached that goal."

I am incredibly thankful for the memories I have made and the things I have 
learned thanks to those around me. 

I would like to start by thanking my parents for everything. Mot only have 
you allowed me to go to a great school and raised me to be the man I am

support, no matter the circumstances. You are both amazing people and I

I would also like to thank all of my teachers, especially Mr. Kelly, Coach

through MBA.

future endeavors. Finally, I want to say thanks to all my friends who supported 
me and made my time here even more enjoyable.

MBA the best time of my life. Thank you Mom, Dad, and Ian for always being 
there for me and sticking with me through everything. Thank you to Mrs. 
Maddux, who has been an amazing and incredibly supportive advisor. Thank 
you to all of my coaches, especially Coach Deutsch, Coach Cheevers, Coach 
Klausner and Coach Kovick, for their guidance and lessons on and off the 
field/ice. Thank you to Mr. Kelly for an incredible two years in English class and 
for going above and beyond of just being my teacher. Thank you to Mr. Clark 
and Dr. Flardin for always being available to talk about anything going on. 
Thank you to my friends; My time here wouldn't have been the same without 
you all.

To my debate coaches, Mr. Clark, Mr. Hamrick, Mr. Quinn, and Mr. Yorko: Your

a debater and a young man. Thank you for putting up with our shenanigans; I 
will never forget stressful tournament weekends and the thousands of hours 
you all invested in our success. 

To my advisor, Mrs. Victoria: Thank you for your advice and input into matters 
both academic and personal to me. You grew to be a confidant I could count 
on and I will miss your cooking on cold Friday mornings. 

To Dr. Kinch: Thank you for entertaining my love for literature as both a junior 
and a senior. Though my theme nights were often long, your reflections on 
my writing always made them worthwhile and the books we read endlessly 
fascinated me. Your nurturing my passion in reading and writing has been 
massively impactful and I am incredibly thankful. 

Lastly, to Dr. Boyd: As a junior, your class was consistently the highlight of my 
day. Each carefully crafted powerpoint was more amusing, each discussion 
more interesting than the last. Your class never failed to make me smile, and 
I appreciated your investments into us as your students.

Dear Mom and Dad, 

My time at MBA has been nothing short of amazing - I have you two to 
thank for that. Without both MBA and your support, I would not be the man 
that I am today. Thank you for believing in me and instilling characteristics in 
me that represent a high moral character. Thank you for the freedoms you 
have given me, and, as a result, thank you for putting up with me for the past 
six years. I am beyond thankful for the opportunities MBA has given me as 
they were not possible without both of you. Thank you for understanding the 
long nights, the farm nights, and trying to understand the 
"misunderstandings." Thank you for the love you have shown me throughout 
my time at MBA- through the highs and lows. Thank you for always wanting 
the best for me and being my #1 supporter - you both have given me the 
confidence to mature into the man that I am today. Thank you for loving me 
unconditionally. I love you Mom and Dad.

First I would like to thank my parents for providing for me to go to this great 
school. If it were not for them I would not be where I am today. I would like to 
thank my dad for paying for me to go here, but also always believing in me. It 
was his support in anything that I did that allowed me to be the man I am 
today. And to my mom who was always there for me especially when I was at 
my lowest. Second I would like to thank all my teachers for everything they 
did: for Mr. Sawyer for teaching me how to tie a bow tie and to play golf in 
class with a yard stick and eraser; for Mr. Brown's multiple choice, for the real 
Mr. Cooper and his turkey feathers; for Mrs. Roberts and her totally 100% 
completely truthful and accurate nursing stories; for David Deutsch for the 
stories to "not being that guy" and the fact that math is 80% life and 20% 
math; for Dr. Bailey and his sunflower seeds; for Mr. Davidson for being the 
perfect teacher; for Coach Barclay and his three F's, that notes packet, and 
the rocket problem; and finally for Mrs.Beatie O'Connell who is and always will 
be my most favorite and loved teacher that I have ever had. And finally to the 
Boys, remember to always Buckle Down at the midquarter.

I have been truly blessed to have gone to Montgomery Bell Academy. I want 
to thank my family for supporting me through my victories and defeats along 
this remarkable six-year journey. I will always love you. To my teachers and 
coaches, your strong and impactful words help shape me in the classroom, 
on the field, and in the gym. To Coach Anglin, Coach Euverard, and Coach 
Brock, thank you for all the battles and lessons that have changed my life and 
made me a stronger and hardworking young man. To my fellow students and 
those in the grades below me, keep striving and never settle. Your time will 
come and I wish y'all the best. And lastly to my brothers and closest friends, I 
love y'all. You know who you are. Our time together has been filled with 
everlasting memories and laughs. Erom seventh grade to senior year, the 
bonds and friendships that have been made will never be broken. I will always 
have you y'all's back. Ever since I was a young kid, I dreamed about coming to 
this amazing school, and now the moment has come for me to say goodbye 
to it. Time flies too quickly. Roll Red Roll.

Mom, Dad, Devon, and Leelee, thank you for always being there for me. I'm 
incredibly lucky to have a family who has loved and supported me 
unconditionally. I don't know how I would have been able to make it through 
MBA without your help; I'm grateful for everything. Whether it be driving to 
tennis tournaments, laughing until tears during game nights, or talking for 
hours on the kitchen floor, I would never trade these experiences for a thing. 
Thank you all so much. 

To my teachers, thank you for giving me the best education in preparing 
me for the next stages of my life. I have an endless amount of memories 
from the classroom, each one unique and portraying a different aspect of my 
MBA life. Special thanks to Mr. Trotter, Dr. Carro, Coach Davidson, Coach 
Klausner, Dr. Kinch, and especially Dr. Boyd, who was my teacher, coach, and 
advisor throughout my time at MBA. There is no one else who I would rather 
do push-ups for at 7:59 in the morning, no other teacher who would turn the 
history group chat into a meme chat, and the only person who allows his 
classmates to tease his British accent. Thank you for everything. 

To my friends, you all have made my time at MBA unforgettable. The 
memories we shared on and off campus resulted in some of the best years of 
my life. I hope that we stay friends for life. Thank you. Roll Red.

mentor, and friend. I took a risk switching to his advisory sophomore year, 
and it was the best decision I made at MBA. Lastly, I would like to thank 
Dr.Onstott. Mis engagement with his students as well as his teaching style 
sparked genuine enthusiasm in the classroom, making for an unforgettable 
year. Thank you.

Thank you to my parents for providing me this opportunity and for supporting 
me through everything. The friends and memories that I have made here will 
remain with me forever. Special thanks to Dr. Boyd, my advisor, for all the 
complaints fielded, shout-outs in assemblies and registrations, random history 
references, occasional appearances at real football games, and hopelessly 
anti-British MENAP classes. On a more serious note, he has been invaluable in 
providing all sorts of guidance and always saying what I needed, not 
necessarily wanted, to hear. Mr. Johnson's stories and jovial presence on the 
sidelines and around campus have provided much needed moments of comic 
relief. I also want to thank Ms. Hollifield for her incredible loyalty, optimism, 
and impact on this campus. Finally, thank you to all the other teachers, 
coaches, and staff who invest so much time into making MBA such a special 
place (especially Mr. Gioia, Mr. Kelly, Benor Paolicchi, Coach Lanier, Emeka, 
and David).

Anderson, Coach Euv, Coach Brock, Coach Sanders, Coach Tipps, Coach 
Klausner, E., Mr. Stewart, Dr. Dickens, Dr. Onstott, Ms. Hackney, and Ms. 
Swieca. You have pushed me far beyond what I thought I could do and 
taught me lessons much deeper than those learned on the field. To my 
teammates: you will always be my brothers. I am most thankful for my 
family. My grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins have always loved and 
supported me. Finally, I could not be more grateful for my sister, Lydia, 
and my Mom and Dad. I love you. Roll Red!

If you asked me whether I was going to finish MBA in 7th grade, I would have 
said you're drunk. This school stretched me beyond my limits with in 
academic rigor, demanding athletics, and an unyielding standard of character. 
The pain brought me to tears on occasion, however, I am better for it. I now 
know how to tirelessly work while smiling. As far as I'm concerned, I can do 
anything in 50 minutes or less. This school is not for the faint of heart. It is for 
those who strive to succeed. All grammar tests pale in comparison to Mr. 
Anderson's Grammar and Vocabulary class. Mr. Russell taught me how to 
write and coached me around the track, forcing me to create a balance. I 
thank Dr. Raney for pushing me to my limits only to exceed them. You 
inspired me to begin to think on a different level and take initiative in my own 
education, two very valuable gifts. I thank Coach Pippin, Will, and Tyler for 
working with me for countless hours on the track. I am forever indebted to 
Matthew Kimball for guiding me during my lowest low. You inspired me not 
only to write but also become a better person, nothing will compare to the life 
advice given in your room. I thank my family for putting me through this 
school and helping me all the way through. Your deeds did not go unnoticed. I 
am a better man because of you. I love you all.

Mom and Dad, 

I will never be able to give you two a proper thank you for all that you have 
done for me the past 19 years of my life. You two have worked tirelessly in 
the pursuit to teach me how to be a gentleman above anything. You two 
have taught me to never abandon my faith and to always keep hope when 
times get tough. The reason y'all are so determined in teaching me these 
values is because you have lived it. Mom and Dad, you have gone through 
the highs and the lows but have never abandoned your core values, and 
you never resorted to quitting. It was never an option. I will carry these 
values with me for the rest of my life. Sending me to MBA was a blessing in 
disguise for me. Men like Mr. Shone and Dr. Rainey taught me that nothing 
is going to be handed to me in life. Coach Sanders taught me to never lose 
hope even in the darkest of times. Dad, you told me at an early age that I 
will have to keep going on with life even if I am dealt a bad hand. Mom, you 
have told me all my life to care for any and everybody. I will walk with these 
ideals you instilled in me wherever I go. I cannot begin thank you enough. I 
love you both so much.

lessons, sayings, jokes, and stories with me. I want to thank Coach Barclay for 
one of my favorite classes of my entire time and getting me fired up about

Thank you to all of the robotics coaches for a great four years and lots of 
lessons learned. It started out rough, but thanks to your leadership we came 
together as a team and were able to build a few robots that didn't 
immediately commit suicide. Going forward I am sure I will use the CADing, 
coding, and building skills that I learned here for the rest of my life, having 
Dr. Lech and Dr. hedmark as teachers as well as coaches was also an 
incredible experience. Thank you each for teaching something new and 
interesting every day, especially when we went off topic. Both of your 
classes will always be remembered fondly. Other people I would like to thank 
include Aditya Priyadarshi, whose strength I could always rely on. Not being 
part of the MBA community next year will be a tough adjustment, and I will 
miss all of the experiences and inside jokes I shared with my classmates. 
Doubtlessly I will always carry the memories of the tight bonds I made here 
with me, but as with anything it is important not to dwell on endings and 
instead look to new beginnings.

the amazing conversations about life and always being there for advice and 
help. Bhoutout to Bruce for being the class mascot and congratulations on

best coaches and men I have ever met. Erom the phone call you gave me 
convincing me to come to MBA to this last season, you have helped this 
school feel like home. I will miss all the grief you give me about being a Man 
City fan, even though Tottenham shouldn't be in the EPL. I would also like to

you guys. Everyone, thank you for giving me such a wonderful life. You will 
never know how much you mean to me.

thank my parents especially my mother, Julie. She forced me to come to 
Montgomery Bell Academy. I wanted nothing more than to not attend MBA, 
but as I look back on the sacrifices she made for me, I am grateful to have 
been a student at MBA and I can never thank her enough for the lessons and 
memories I have experienced. I would also like to thank my father, Chip, for 
sacrificing his chance to see me mature into a young adult and support me 
in finding my way through life. Thank you, Dad, Mom, and Coach Anderson. I 
really appreciate everything you all have done for me.

Mom and Dad, thank you for everything you do for me each day. I love 
you both so much and appreciate all the little things you do in addition to 
providing me with incredible opportunities and setting me up for the best 
future possible. I think about how things are going to turn out and remember 
that you have prepared me for everything. You have made me who I am today 
and have done the best you can do. I am so thankful. I don't know what I 
would do without you. 

Also, thank you to the teachers that have supported me in my academic 
journey along the way. From Mr. Champion in 4th grade, who first got me 
interested in higher-level math, to Mrs. Qian and Coach Colenor, who both 
taught me twice and provided me with both a strong math foundation and 
competition opportunities, I owe my love for math to you all. In Spanish, I 
thank Coach Kamm for helping me begin and Mr. Paolicchi for helping me 
excel to receive multiple grants for incredible life experiences. Spanish has 
changed my life and I will continue to study and use it. Thank you to Mr. 
Womack, my advisor, for your 4 years of help. Although I had a tendency to 
arrive late even when we only had 10 minutes to talk and we had the smallest 
advisory on campus, I still enjoy our time and will miss your popsicle-stick 
jokes and puns. I appreciate your introducing me to the world of art, as it is 
now another valuable part of my life. Finally, thank you to Jersey Mike and all 
my friends that I made throughout high school. I couldn't have made it 
without your support.

Dear Dr. Onstott, 

If I had not taken your English III class, my MBA experience would have 
not been as fulfilling and exciting. Going into junior year, I was not much of an 
English scholar and English was a class I just hoped to pass, not taking in 
what was being taught. It was not until I started your class that I began to 
appreciate English and really take into account what we were learning. Your 
quick banter and positive attitude made coming to class everyday easy. You 
wasted no time getting to know our class and from an early point. Me, and the 
rest of the guys, saw your genuine care in how we were doing inside and 
outside of class. It was not uncommon to see you talking to one of us in the 
halls. Whether it be a simple hello, or just some advice, you established 
yourself as someone we could always come to for help. Even a year after 
being in your class, I still love coming into your room to talk or get some 
advice. I feel like there is no problem to big or too small that I cannot come to 
you and ask for guidance and not feel judged or embarrassed. Your patience, 
care, and ability to listen to others is a characteristic I admire greatly. I look 
back on our class as an important time in the development of the person I am 
today. You taught me much more than English, you taught me discipline and 
to not take life so seriously. You taught me that I am capable of much more 
than what I and or other people thought I was capable of. Needless to say 
that you are one of the many things that makes MBA such a great place.

I would like to thank my family for everything that they have done for me 
during my time on The Mill. My family always made sure that I was well 
supported in every sport and activity I participated during my time on The 
Mill. They always put me first no matter what and encouraged me to pursue 
things I was interested in. My family always took the time to ask me about 
how my day was. They took me on college visits and woke up at 5 to take 
me to summer workouts and never complained. My family was always 
pushing me when I needed to be pushed. They always believed in me and 
never let me forget how much they loved me.

Coach Clark, I would be a completely different person if you didn't guide

Mom and Dad, 

Thank you both for all the love and support you have shown me during my 
time at MBA. Thank you for the long hockey trips and the many sleepless 
nights we had on the road. I will never forget going over Monteagle Mountain 
in a foot of snow or riding a greyhound bus to Canada only to lose every 
game by more than four goals. The time we spent together at the rink was 
some of the best times of my life. Thanks Coach Stewart for all the fun 
advisory sessions with UFC and Kbox on Friday mornings despite having no 
snacks all four years. Keep Maxx Preps living on with the young advisees.

The person that inspires me the most is my dad, Byron Flail. Fie received his 
undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Howard University, tie is 
constantly teaching me things he learns from his job to life lessons and has 
taught me everything that I Know about engineering as well. Specifically, over 
the years my dad has taught me how to problem solve and think like an 
engineer. Mis method of analyzing the problem and not ruling out any solution 
has helped me through many of my math and science classes. Secondly, my 
dad is always willing to help others. Whether he is at work or helping 
troubleshoot a friend's computer problems, he never turns down an 
opportunity to help a customer, friend or family member. I am glad that his 
willingness to assist others has rubbed off on me. Lastly, my dad inspires me 
to be my best through his many stories he tells (even though he thinks I tune 
him out). With all of the lessons my dad has taught me over the years, and 
from what I have heard I hope that I can become half of the man that he is

These last six years have been full many great memories with my friends 
at MBA. There are many people I have to thank for allowing me to make it 
through my journey at MBA. I first want to thank my parents for always 
showing love for me and believing in me. They also helped me get through 
MBA by pushing me to be the very best I could be and by teaching me how to 
manage my time. Without them pushing me and helping me in 7th and 8th 
grade, I wouldn't be the same student I am today. The teacher's at MBA, like 
Coach Anderson and Mr. Russell, taught me discipline from my early stages at 
MBA that have shaped me into the man I am today. Teachers like Coach 
Klausner, Coach Deutsch, and many others taught me many valuable life 
lessons, and that class doesn't have to be boring in my later years of MBA. I 
also want to thank my coaches, Coach Euverard, Coach Brock, Coach 
Banders, Coach Redmond, and Coach Pippin, for pushing me to be the best 
man and athlete that I could be every day. I truly do not know what I would do 
without them, and I will miss playing for them next year. Also, a shoutout to 
my favorite trainers E and Daniel for always being people to hang out with, and 
for all the treatment. I will also miss all the guys on Team 120 because we 
have been through so much together. I will never forget playing with these 
guys on those Eriday nights. I also want to thank my friends for always having 
my back through these six years and just making my life every day an 
adventure. These guys are gonna be my best friends for the rest of my life, 
and I will miss these times on the hill together. Thanks again to everyone who 
has helped me on my path through MBA. Gonna miss it.

The main two people 1 would like to thank is my parents. First is my mom. 
While at MBA, she began to work again which did not stop her support for me. 
5he came to every game that she and no matter the result had a smile on 
her face when I came out of the locker room. Without her I would also have no 
photos for the yearbook either, so I am very grateful for that as well. The next 
person is my dad. It was a little weird to go to school and have your dad be a 
teacher. The longer I went here though I began to look at it as much more of 
a blessing than a curse. Me was always there for support in the good and bad 
times of my athletic career. The last person I need to thank is my advisor. I 
did not know what to think of having the debate coach as my advisor at first, 
but it truly has been a joy to be in that advisory. He is always supportive of 
sports I do and cares about my well being.

MBA has been an odyssey full of friends, mentors, and work. Through 
countless nights of homework and stress, these people have become a 
second family. Whether I am around the people of Ignant Gang or a mentor 
like Coach Deutsch, I know that my connection to the MBA community will 
remain through this familial aspect. I met Coach Deutsch on the first day of 
my freshman year. He was my new and first hockey coach, so I was obviously 
terrified prior to my conversation with him. Coach Deutsch, however, laughed 
as I traipsed into his dimly-lit classroom, and told me his entire childhood 
story, he and I have grown into friends through my high-school career 
between late-night hockey practices and an enlightening Computer Science 
class. Every time I saw him on campus, he gave me a slight smile and asked 
how my day was going. I would respond, then we would go off on a tangent, 
talking about anything from the hockey lineup to politics to gossiping about 
classmates or the shenanigans of the Cavers'. Coach Deutsch shares this 
awesome relationship with not only me but with many people, his dark room 
acts as a hub of conversation and activity on campus, and he never fails to 
put a smile on someone's face, his intricate "don't be that guy" stories about 
patty melts and unique coaching of the Wallace School hockey team make 
everyone laugh. Coach Deutsch, thank you for being such an outstanding 
mentor and teacher to us all.

First, I would like to thank my parents for supporting me throughout my 
time at MBA and for all the little things they do for me everyday. I wouldn't 
have made it without y'all. I would also like to thank all the teachers that I 
have had over the last six years for helping me become not only a better 
student but also a better person. And to thank Ms. Raines, Mr. Moxley, and 
the Wilson Family for giving me a grant to study Sports Management at 
UCLA. I would like to thank Coach Anglin and Coach Mac for always believing 
in my left hand and helping me become a better basketball player. And to 
thank my teammates and friends along the way for all the great memories 
and experiences during our time on the hill. A special thanks to Josiah for 
never getting his license so that I didn't have to make the trip back to 
Marnia alone.

There are too many people that have helped me during my time at MBA to list 
them all here, but the most important are my parents and my sister. They 
have been supporters of every tough choice I have had to make, and have 
pushed me to explore outside my comfort zone. A lot of my teachers also 
deserve a thank you, such as Dr. Marro for leading the best advisory and 
teaching me chemistry for 2 separate years, Dr. Onstott for fueling my 
interest in photography and film, Mr. Barclay for making Physics one of the 
most interesting classes despite it being one of my worst grades, and Mr. 
tiannon for coaching me into a leadership role on the Ultimate Erisbee Squad. 
Lastly, I also need to thank Jersey Mike's for being a welcoming off-campus

I would first off like to thank my parents for always being there for me and 
supporting me during my time on the hill. The connections I have made in the 
past six years, whether with classmates and teachers, will without a doubt last 
for the rest of my life. The bonds that I have made with teachers are 
unforgettable. I believe that MBA has the best faculty there is to offer at any 
school (although I am a little biased). I have become friends with pretty much 
every teacher I have gotten to know, which makes school something to look 
forward to instead of dread everyday. Teachers such as Dr. Onstott, Dr. 
Raney, Dr. herring, Herr Dougherty, and Mr. Moxely make school a place to 
love. I would like to thank Coach Kesor, Coach Calico, and Coach Viger for 
shaping me into the man I am by instilling a hard work ethic into me through 
my years of rowing. Thanks to Mr. 5tory, who was a fantastic advisor to me 
and the rest of my "coo-coo nut brained" advisory. I am really going to miss 
the annual fantasy football draft (even though I never came close to winning). 
Lastly, I'd like to thank Mr. Gioia for being a fantastic headmaster. It is sad to 
have to leave next year, but I know that MBA has adequately prepared me for 
the many challenges yet to come in my life.

I would like to thank the MBA Football Coaching Staff - especially Coaches 
Euverard, Barclay, Brock, Moran, Davis, McWhorter and Cook, and also E and 
Ms. Raines -- for developing me as a football player as well as a person for the 
past four years, and for your unwavering support. I will never forget my three 
trips to Bell Buckle, where my teammates and I felt the pains of three 
practices a day. I will never forget our summer conditioning program which 
included: fifths, 50s, and 300 yd shuttles. I will never forget Coach Euverard 
getting mad at me Sophomore year for getting into fights with the senior 
defensive linemen, or the 15yd penalties that I received against Flewitt- 
Trussville and Father Ryan. Coach Barclay taught me that the three "F's" of 
offensive line play are physics, food, and football. I will never forget the way in 
which we named each practice: Mental Monday, Tempo Tuesday, and Positive 
Wednesday. I will miss my pregame tradition of always supplying the team 
with eye black, and E taping my ankles before every game. I will miss talking 
trash to Dom and Flannah during each scrimmage in practice. But most 
importantly, I learned that the most unbreakable bond is a family.

to thank Coach Euverard, Coach Barclay, and Coach Smith for making my 
experience with sports the best it could be. Finally, I would like to thank Mr.

The past four years at MBA have been such a formative time in my life and I 
owe it all to my teachers, friends, and family. I would like to thank Mr. Story 
for all the memories in advisory with the missed breakfasts and countless 
failed attempts to bring in items for different drives. It is truly amazing to see 
how far our advisory has come from the quiet 3 man crew to the lively 
powerhouse it is today. I would also like to thank all of my hockey coaches, 
especially Coach Deutsch for being the best teacher, coach, and mentor I 
could ask for throughout my years at MBA and for teaching me to always keep 
it in between the ditch and guard rail. Lastly, Mom and Dad, words cannot 
express how grateful I am for everything you have done for me and the time 
you have taken out of your lives to bring me to hockey tournaments halfway 
across the country or be there when I need you. I am so fortunate to have 
role models like you in my life and I strive to be as caring and loving as you 
are one day. Most of all, thank you for sending me to MBA and giving me the 
opportunity to develop myself as gentlemen, scholar, and athlete. Roll Red.

First and foremost, I want to thank both of my parents for spending the time, 
money, and energy to put me in this school. I have appreciated everything 
along the way and will continue to be a reflection of your guidance 
throughout the rest of my life. Second, I want to recognize the football 
coaches who made sure the locker room and our team felt like a second 
family. Coach Euverard, Coach Chauvin, Coach Brock, and Coach Redmond, 
all of you made me into a better person and made me into the best football 
player you could and turned it into the most fun I have ever had with any 
group of people. Last, I want to thank my friends, because through all the 
tough times we went through at MBA from putting off exam studying in the 
Wallace Building to talking about how we wanted to tac every other day of 
the year, we always kept each other sane and were always by one another's 
side. I will never forget the memories we have made.

been otherwise. I would like to thank Dr. Flardin and everybody in his advisory. 
Each and every advisory meeting was a great way to start off each day and 
made each day better. I would like to thank Dr. Dickens, Dr. Onstott, Coach 
Anglin, Dr. Bailey, Mr. Trotter, Mr. Morrison, Mr. Story, Mr. Davidson, and Dr. 
Fuller. These teachers made my transition much easier and enjoyable and 
their classes were a joy to be in. I would also like to thank Brandon Flail, 
Charles Missan, John Curry, Mick German, the Arwen twins, Aden Barton, 
Bianca Sass, Kate Pittman, and all of the other people at MBA, Flarpeth Flail,

life and I will always value the connections I made with them here.

Dr. Onstott, 

Throughout my time as an MBA student, I always had viewed myself to strictly 
be a math/science guy. While I did enjoy my previous English classes, the 
subject as a whole never left a major impression on me. however, shortly 
after the beginning of junior year in your class, my feelings on English 
changed significantly. You put a lot of time and effort into improving my 
writing, and English became my favorite subject. I had never pictured myself 
writing in the newspaper, yet you helped me find my own journalistic style and 
gave me the chance to have my own column. You helped me further explore 
this style with the creation of the MBA / Eat Magazine, and the two weeks we 
spent eating at cool restaurants is a time I'll cherish for the rest of my life. I'm 
extremely grateful to have had you as a teacher, and I know that you'll 
continue to inspire students in the same way you inspired me.

thank my grandparents, especially Bill, thank you for coming into my life, you 
have brought nothing but good into our family. Dr. Lech and Dr. Onstott, you 
both encouraged me to pursue new things and improve my confidence. I 
would have never jumped into writing and gone off on a grant without either of 
you. Thanks to the tennis program, for a backup sport that gave me so much. 
Thank you Coach Davidson, for showing me the worst failures and how to work 
to achieve the highest accomplishments. Thanks to Dan "Pop" herring, your 
stories were always entertaining, and you were a beautiful soul to see on 
campus. I want to thank Dr. Boyd, not only for years of friendly coaching, but 
also for letting me drop classes, even after the deadline. I would also like to 
thank my closest friends at MBA. Borne I've had since seventh grade, some 
I've had for only a year. You all have been what has kept me happy, and made 
the wear and tear of MBA bearable, and I will always be grateful. MBA has 
prepared me and given me so many memories, and I will never forget that. 
You are all my family, and I look forward to seeing you all succeed. Roll Red.

I'd like to thank my family, friends, and teachers at MBA. Without Dr. Boyd's 
20 cent reference generosity, Coach Deutsch's wise words, Dr. Bailey's 
reformer's summit, Coach Lanier's impressive dry-erase marker accuracy, Mr. 
Hannon's teaching me the key to a perfect flick Erisbee throw, and Mr. 
Compton's instillation of my constant belief in the chain rule, I know my time 
at MBA would have been much less enjoyable. I'd like to thank my best 
friends for always pushing me to be a better person and a hard-worker, and I 
want to thank Jersey Mike's 5ubs for assembling the greatest group of guys I 
know. In all seriousness, my time at MBA would never have been the same 
without my friends by my side, my teachers and counselors pushing me to be 
the best, and my family always being there for me whenever I thought I could 
give up. Thank you, MBA.

I first and foremost want to thank my family for everything they've done for 
me. Without them, I wouldn't be half the person I am and would be 
completely lost. They've supported everything I've been interested in 
wholeheartedly and have put countless hours to teach me and help me in 
every way imaginable. I sincerely appreciate their empathy not only for me, 
but the greater community as well. Likewise I am grateful for my 
grandparents, aunts, and uncles who've also given their time to teach and 
push me to be the best version of me. hone of this would be possible without 
you all.

When I entered into the MBA community in ninth grade, I felt quite nervous. I 
knew no one, and most of the students in my grade had already formed 
friendships in the two years beforehand while I was still attending Saint Henry 
School. I was quickly integrated into the community, and I thank Mr. Smyth 
and the choir for that. Mr. Smyth has been a constant for me in the four years 
that I have gone here. We see each other and work together every day, and 
whenever I am feeling blue he tries to cheer me up. he has also given so 
much of his time outside the classroom just to help me out. From Midstate 
and Allstate practices and performances to choral festival and weekend 
rehearsals, he has given so much, and he continues to do so each day with a 
huge smile and a positive attitude. Without him, I have no doubt that my high 
school experience would have been radically different, he has made my time 
here at MBA something to look back upon and smile. Thank you, Mr. Bmyth.

When I first came to Montgomery Bell, I knew almost no one, and it took me 
quite a while to get acquainted to my new home and find my role in its 
society. While it was difficult to make the transition, I quickly found a relief 
from the hard work and long schedules that the school put upon me. This 
relief stemmed from my passion that I had for playing the viola. When I first 
walked into my Orchestra class, I was welcomed with open arms by Mr. 
Merideth. he instilled in me a greater love for music than I had ever known, 
and it eventually led to music becoming a sanctuary to which I could go 
whenever I needed a break from all of the things that were troubling me. 
Throughout my time playing on The Hill, he has helped to guide me to 
becoming a better musician, and towards improving at the instrument I loved. 
Whenever I have had something knock me down, he has been there to help 
me back up and show me what is really important, he has proven to not 
simply be a teacher, but also a mentor and a friend. Without him, I would 
never have become the musician or the person that I am today.

Firstly, I would like to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to 
attend MBA. I am constantly humbled by the sacrifices you make to ensure I 
receive a good education. Dad, your wisdom and guidance have led me 
through hard times. I can always talk to you when I need help. You set the 
example of how a man should act, and I could only hope to be the person you 
are one day. I love you. Mom, thank you for always listening to me when I 
needed someone to talk to. I am truly lucky to have a mother as loving and 
caring as you are. You make so many sacrifices for me that it often goes 
unnoticed. I love you. Mrs. Bcholer, I can confidently say I would not have 
made it through MBA without you. I am lucky to have an advisor as caring and 
understanding as you are. You're the one person I can always talk to at MBA, 
and have taught me how to treat others through your everyday actions. I can 
never thank you enough. Thank you to my teachers, especially Coach 
Deutsch, Mr. Moxley, Dr. Onstott, Mr. 5tory, Dr. Bailley and Coach Anglin. You 
all have had a profound influence on me, and I am lucky to have had you all as 
my teachers. 

If you can keep your head when all about you / Are losing theirs and blaming it 
on you, / If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, /But make 
allowance for their doubting too; / If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, / 
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, / Or being hated, don't give way to 
hating, / And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise.

I would like to thank everybody who helped me get through and graduate 
from MBA, including, but not limited to, my parents, Beth and Steve Preston, 
the faculty and staff at Saint Bernard Academy, and especially at those at 
MBA. One particular teacher stands out from the others (not that I am 
discounting the importance of anyone else). Robert Dougherty and I first met 
on the Junior School Cross Country Team. I always stayed at the back of the 
pack and incidentally, Mr. Dougherty found himself there most practices. We 
talked about German and my taking it next year as a freshman. Me showed 
me the ropes of MBA, mainly that some jokes are better not said aloud, and I 
thanked him by showing up in his class the first day of sophomore year. In 
freshman year, I had an excellent time with Herr Flo (Dr. Rader) and was then 
ecstatic to be in the prestigious German II Honors class with the legendary 
Herr Dougherty. We shared many goofs and gaffs together, like when I 
climbed out his window. I learned the importance of a level head and good 
etiquette. Mot only did I learn the ins and outs of the German Language, I 
learned about adulthood and life after school, as well as how to be a parent in 
our modern era. In conclusion, I would like to thank everyone for their valiant 
sacrifices of time and resources which aided me in my journey through MBA 
and into the world.

brothers for the last six years and for many more to come.

to thank coaches Rich Kesor, Eric Viger, Chris Calico, and David Joniak for 
pushing me to challenge myself every day with the goal of being better than I 
was the day before. Without their help, I do not think I would have attained the 
work ethic and dedication that I possess now.

believing in me through all my endeavors and inspiring me every day. Y'all 
showed me that it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the 
fight in the dog. Eootball and baseball have had such a huge impact on me 
during my time on the hill, thanks to my coaches and teammates. To the 
teachers who made MBA fun: Kinch, Carro, Elardin, Boyd, Morrow, Davidson,

Thank you to Mr. Btory for being a great advisor these past 4 years. Being a 
part of this advisory was certainly a high. Everything including fantasy football, 
breakfasts, and service projects. Thank you to all my teachers that I had 
throughout high school. I had a great time in my classes and had great help 
whenever needed. Thank you to Octor Donstott for the unforgettable Junior 
year English class. Erom the Canterbury Tales recitation to talking about 
Bruce, that class was a big highlight all in high school. Also, thank you to 
Coach Dasooches for the hilarious stories in Algebra II and Computer Science. 
There was always something that you said that got the class going. Thank you 
to Coach Anderson and Coach Jackson for being great role models when I 
played baseball and golf. Baseball was so much easier with Coach Anderson 
as a coach. Coif was made stress free with Coach Jackson. Thank you to 
anyone that has impacted in any way throughout my MBA career. Finally, 
thank you to my mom, sister, and brother for always being there at some 
difficult times throughout high school. I do not know what I would have done 
without you guys.

I'd like to take this space to thank one person and group of people for my 
time on The hill- Mr. Kelly and the Rowing team. 

Although I've only known him for a year and a half now, he's one of the 
teachers that really enabled me to love and properly dissect literature and 
love English. Also, he may just be the reason I get into college because of his 
help in fixing up my personal statement. 

The rowing team has been there for me my entire time at MBA. Erom my 7th 
grade year all the way through to graduation, it's been my favorite thing about 
the school and easily helped me stick with it, especially through tough times 
with academics and social life.

Throughout six years on the hill, every student faces trials that seem 
insurmountable in nature, such as any Bullington test, frequent themes, and 
projects that are procrastinated until the period before it's due. The toughest 
of these hardships was the rough transition in between the nonchalant setting 
of Dickson Middle School to the rigid structure of MBA. The first few weeks 
were impossible, and I would not have been able to make it through these 
formative weeks or these long years without the loving guidance and patience 
of my parents and family. They believed in me from day one, through thick 
and thin (even with the incident with the eraser and the window). There is no 
way I will be able to repay them for the strenuous nights and wild schedule 
that is integral as a student at MBA. Whenever times were rough, they wer 
always there for me no matter how much work or other obligations they had. 
can truly say that I have the best parents any teenager can ask for.

I would like to start off by thanking all the coaches and teachers, especially 
that have helped me in some way or another during my time on the hill. Your 
willingness to advise and guide me through my life is something that I will 
never forget. Next I would like to thank my parents for pushing me to be the 
best that I can be and supporting me in whatever I do. Your continual love and 
support have shown me what it means to love unconditionally. I would also 
like to thank Mr. Johnson. Your morning jokes made each day on the hill a 
little easier, and the ability I had to come to you for advice about anything is 
something I will always remember. Finally, I would like to thank two woman at 
MBA that have had an extraordinary impact on my life, Mrs. Williams and Mrs. 
Flollifield. You all have taught me more than I could have ever imagined, ho 
matter what I needed you were always willing to help me. I would not be the 
man I am and I would have been able to do the things I have done without 
your help. I can say without a doubt that they have been some of the most 
influential people in my life. I cannot describe in words how appreciative I am 
for you two in my life, and I will never forget you both for the rest of my life.

Physics on an early morning. I would like to thank my baseball coaches, 
especially Coach Anderson and Coach Kimball for developing me as a baseball 
player and for their guidance. I would like to thank all my classmates, 
teammates, and barnmates for helping me achieve my goals and contributing 
to the community that makes MBA memorable.

First I would like to thank my parents for sending me to such an amazing 
school and providing continuous support along the way. I wouldn't be where I 
am today without them. I would like to thank all of my teachers and coaches 
who have shaped me into the man I am today. To my friends: thank you for all 
the unforgettable memories and good times we had together. You guys have 
been with me all the way through, and I couldn't ask for a better group of 
guys. I would specifically like to thank Coach Brock, Coach Chauvin, Coach Eu, 
Ms. Raines, Ms. Williams, Coach Shone, Coach K and many more for their 
continuous support throughout my MBA career.

I would like to thank my Mom and my Dad for pushing me to challenge myself 
in and out of school and to try new things, whether it be to travel to new 
places or try new food. It was you who instilled in me this curiosity that I'll 
never lose and the morals and life lessons that I cherish and will cherish for 
the rest of my life. I truly don't know where I would be without your loving 

I'd like to thank my coaches, Mr. Kesor and Killian, for encouraging me to put 
everything I had into each race and practice. This value of discipline is one 
that will never leave me, and I'm sure it is one that will serve me later in life. 

I'd like to thank Dr. Kinch for pushing me to search for a meaning in all the 
works we read. You have not only encouraged me to look for meaning in 
literature, but in my life's events as well. 

I would like to thank Mr. Trotter for creating a classroom environment that 
allowed for discussion, which allowed me and others to learn French in an 
extremely interactive and effective way. You instilled in me a passion for 
French, which I wish to continue to pursue in college and later in life.

Thank you first of all to my parents for sacrificing so much to be able to put 
me through MBA for 6 years. I will never be able to repay you or understand 
the magnitude of what you did. Thank you also to my grandparents for always 
being present at all my games, and always being there to talk to. Thank you 
to my teachers and advisor Mr. Morton, you have impacted my life for the 
better and I will miss the times we've had. Mr. Morton you have always been 
there for me, allowing me to go on trips and discover my love for the 
outdoors, something I will forever be grateful for. Lastly, thank you to my 
friends for helping me get through the years on the Mill. I don't think any of us 
would have gotten through it without each other, and i'm thankful for all the

Eirst and most importantly, I want to thank my parents and my sister for 
being the most supportive people in my life. At a tough school like MBA, you 
need people to fall back on when times get challenging, and my family was 
always there for me. Mot only did they support me in every way, but they 
provided me with countless incredible opportunities over the years. Secondly, 

I owe a thank you to my friends for making my high school career a truly 
unforgettable experience. 

Lastly, this letter would not be complete without thanking a few of my 
most influential teachers. My teachers made my time at MBA memorable and 
fun while being great influences on my character and my academic career. I 
want to thank Coach Deutsch for being a life coach and a math teacher at the 
same time; Mr. Kelly for enriching my love of English while being one of the 
funniest teachers on campus; Coach Anderson for being my first advisor and a 
great mentor in my early junior school years; Mr. Morton for keeping 
everything running smoothly on the surface; Mrs. Mollifield for making art a 
true passion of mine; and lastly Coach McMahan and Coach Anglin for being 
some of the most influential people not only in my basketball career, but in 
my life. 

MBA has been an incredible ride, and without all of these people it would 
not have been the same. I am proud to say that I went to Montgomery Bell 
and I would not want it any other way. 

Thanks to everyone who supported,

I would like to start by thanking my mom for always working her hardest to

brothers, Jay and Brian, for always helping me when needed. I would also like 
to thank Dr. Dickens for introducing me to the world of physics and for helping 
me discover my passion. Finally, I would like to thank all my friends, from the 
fantastic four to the green goblins, for always being there and for helping my 
high school be the best it could be.

So we made it through. Let's pause, take a breathe in and out real slow. With 
this sigh of relief goes all the nights going to bed early in the AM, the four 
hours of sleep and the traffic caused by a wreck that really wasn't a wreck, 
just people rubbernecking at 5 mph. Following those go the arguments over 
grades, mutual hatred of teachers, and stress of due dates. And I must say, 
to all of you, I'm proud of us. 

I know that my being the oldest kid by a comfortable margin has made my 
entire youth basically a trial run for the family. Every first day of preschool, 
kindergarten, middle school, and high school was not only my first day but 
yours as well. You'd never had a kid do all those things because you'd never 
had a kid before, period. 5o I thank you. I thank you for being willing to grow 
with me throughout my life, and for helping me realize that each new step 
that frightened me, frightened you just as much if not more. 

I'm excited for college, not just so that I can pursue the independence you've 
sustained, but more so for this next phase of growth that we can embark on 
as a family. It's your support that keeps me motivated, and I love you all

relationships that I have built here and I would not trade it for the

Dear Coach Kesor, 

I've only had the pleasure of Knowing you for two years. In those short years, 
you've managed to do something that most men will spend their entire lives 
trying to do. You've earned the respect of not only me, but anyone who has 
participated in rowing. When I first started, I never thought I would last. I only 
rowed because I had failed at every other sport in spectacular fashion. When I 
did join, I tore my Knee about two weeKs into the season, and as a result, did 
not plan on returning. Three or four weeKs after my injury, to my surprise, you 
approached me and told me that I would always be welcome if I ever wanted 
to return. You convinced me to rejoin in less than a minute, which has since 
become a decision I do not regret. Since the beginning of your time as the 
head rowing coach for MBA, I've had the privilege of watching you build us 
from nothing, to a nationally ranKed program. You accomplished more in one 
year than most coaches could dream of doing in ten. In addition to how far 
you've taKen us as a team, you also manage to bring out the best in us as 
individuals. Our success on the water alone does not satisfy you. You are also 
relentless in your efforts to build us into men. Forcing us to Keep each other 
in checK, we fight amongst ourselves on the water liKe wolves, and looK after 
each other off the water liKe brothers. Most of my success both athletically 
and academically is a tribute to the discipline you've instilled in me through 
the grueling conflict that is the race. You've done more for me than you Know 
and my words alone cannot thanK you enough for it.

To all MBA faculty members, I want to say thank you for making my time at 
MBA special. During my time at MBA all of my teachers and coaches 
constantly pushed me to become a gentleman, scholar, and athlete. I 
especially wish to thank my advisor, Mr. Moxley, as he successfully helped me 
find my place at MBA, and was there for me whenever I needed advice. I also 
want to thank Mr. Cioia for his leadership, and my experience in AP English. 
Finally, I thank my parents for sending me to an amazing school like MBA, and 
supporting me though the last six years, as my MBA experience would not 
have been the same without them.

that support me in everything I do. I love you so much and will never be able 
to thank you enough. I want to thank every member of MBA's outstanding 
faculty and staff for making MBA the school that it is, and for providing an 
environment for every student at MBA to thrive. Special thanks to Mr. Norton, 
Mr. Stewart, Coach Euverard, Coach Garvey, Coach MclA/hirter, Emeka Nahdi, 
Dr. Boyd, the maintenance staff, and so many others for your profound 
impact on me during my time on The Mill. To all the guys that have grown with 
me while at MBA, I will always remember y'all and will never forget the 
brotherhood and the memories that we have shared. I love you guys.

Bell Academy has helped me grow as a man and as a leader. Finally, I would 
like to also thank my mother for the opportunity to go to MBA and for the 
endless support through all of it.

who I am today without these people. Thank you.

The Leaders 

The wonderful Z018-Z019 school year on the 
hill would not have been possible without 
MBA's dedicated leadership. The work that Mr. 
Gioia gives to the school on a daily basis is 
truly astounding, and clearly reflect the 
devotion he has towards his job and this 
school. Running MBA, however, is something 
that not even he could do alone. With a team 
of administrators MBA is able to function and 
grow each year. With Mrs. Stewart leading the 
way at the Junior School with Mr. Simpson 
serving as Dean, the seventh and eighth 
graders have a good start to their time on The 
Mill. Dr. Boyd led the way with academics for 
the high school. Mr. Morton, too, cannot be 
overlooked for his dedication to ensuring that 
day-to-day student life on campus functions 
smoothly. Mr. Tate and Mr. McMahan worked 
tirelessly to encourage the students to be the 
best versions of themselves. All of the 
administrators on campus give of themselves 
both during and after school hours to make 
MBA a great experience. The amount of 
gratitude that the MBA community has for the 
administration cannot be overstated and Mr. 
Morton will be missed as he leaves The Mill at 
the end of this academic year.

Paving the Way for the Future 

A quick walk through the Ball Building would 
quickly reveal to anyone the great people at 
work behind the scenes who control one of the 
most powerful aspects of MBA: its admissions. 
Mrs. Lechleiter, Mr. Ferrell, Mr. Martin, and Mrs. 
Harrington are only a few of the many people 
that make up the small army whose job it is to 
oversee the admission of new students and 
guide them and their families through the 
process. The Alumni and Development Office 
stays in contact with MBA's many alumni and 
helps to fund the operations and capital 
campaigns of the campus. Many MBA students 
do not even know most of the people who 
spend their hours in the Alumni and 
Development Office, but, once they graduate, 
these students will realize just how much effort 
these people put in on a day-to-day basis. 
Without such a dedicated admissions, alumni, 
and development staff, MBA would not be the 
bastion of learning and friendliness that it is. 
The work that the Alumni and Development 
Officer members such as Mr. Johnson and Mr. 
Smith put in towards the planning of events 
such as homecoming and the carnival cannot 
be overstated, and MBA simply would not be 
the same without their dedication. 

I. The Alumni and Development Office sponsors events 
such as Career Day for seniors to work with alumni in 
various fields of interest. 2. Alumni are welcomed back 
on campus for an early Thanksgiving meal courtesy of 
Sage. 3. Mrs. Lchleiter welcomes each student on 
campus with a warm and friendly smile. 4 ■ Seniors

different breakout sessions across campus.

Feeding the whole school is hard work, but Bage makes sure it gets done everyday. Fleaded by the legendary Mrs. 
Bquires and Mr. Walsnovich, the Bage staff serves delicious food at breakfast, break, lunch, and even dinner when the 
occasion arises. Their hard work leaves no MBA student with an empty stomach,.and deserve many thanks for their hard work, 
each year they treat the students and staff alike to special meals like fresh cooked stir fry, a carving station, and an ice cream 
bar. Similarly, MBA would not be able to function without the presence of the maintenance staff. From salting the sidewalks on 
cold winter mornings to their help setting up for events like Endada and the weekly assemblies. The maintenance team is an 
invaluable asset to the MBA community and we all owe them a big thank you, as MBA would not be the special place that it is 
today without them.

Each year there are countless activities, 
events, and people on campus and it is the 
office staff that Keep it all together and

Haendel at the Junior School Office ty are the 
first faces guests see on campus. With Mrs.

Mr. Norton with student services helps Keep 
everyone accountable and organized. The 
Business Office facilitates the budgeting and 
mahing sure the lights stay on across campus 
as well as each department has what they 
need. In the Registar's Office Ms. McAmis has 
the daunting job of mahing sure each student 
is enrolled in the right classes at the right 
time as well as all every teacher gets their 
grades in on time. It is not clear which job is 
more challenging, but Ms. McAmis handles 
them both with ease. Every office on campus

Few members of the MBA community truly 
understand the vast amount of work that goes 
on behind the scenes to ensure the success of 
MBA's numerous athletic teams. The athletic 
department truly depends upon the leadership 
and dedication of Mr. Tipps and the hard work of 
Ms. Dreher as well as the dedicated coaches 
and trainers. Their work to organize athletic 
events and keep the numerous cogs of the 
department running cannot be overstated. 

The work of the athletic trainers to keep 
MBA's athletes healthy and fit cannot be 
overlooked. The work of Coach V/ernacchio and 
Emeka, or "E" as he is known by most of the 
students, along with that of his fellow trainers, 
has been key to ensuring the long-term health 
and well-being of MBA's many athletes, long 
with the team coaches the hours put into the 
successful records of each team are countless. 

Finally, a discussion of the work that goes 
into the athletic department would be 
incomplete without mentioning the 
maintenance department. Their work to 
maintain the fields and numerous athletic 
facilities ensures that MBA's athletic teams 
have a place to practice and compete without

Counseling & College Counseling 

Of the many hats that MBA faculty 
members wear, that of guidance counselor is 
both one of the most important and most 
under-appreciated. Both the Counseling and 
College Counseling Offices maintain ongoing 
relationships with students throughout their 
time at MBA. Focusing on the mental well¬ 
being of MBA's students is the mission of the 
counseling department. Mrs. Bcholer, the head 
of the Counseling Department, always has a 
bright smile on her face and is always willing to 
speak to anyone, about any topic, at any time 
of day. Mr. Lawrence, as well, is one of the 
friendliest people on campus, and is always 
looking to start a conversation. These two, 
along with other faculty members including Ms. 
Williams and Mr. Tillman, form the backbone of 
the Counseling Department. 

The College Counseling Office has the 
daunting task of ushering every senior student 
through the application process for college. 
Over the course of a student's high school 
career, relationships are formed to help guide 
students in finding the perfect fit for the next 
phase of education. Although, ultimately it is 
up to the students to follow through on their 
applications, the expert guidance they receive 
give them a leg up in the process. Students 
also benefit from the years of experience from 
counselors Ms. Maddux and Mr. Klausner with 
the tireless help of Mrs. Moon and her supply of 
Jolly Ranchers.

MBA's English curriculum prepares all students to be disciplined writers, 
thoughtful readers, and deep analytical thinkers. A heavy focus on the nuts- 
and-bolts of language, including sentence diagramming, combined with a study 
of literary classics, ensures that every boy at MBA will be the shining star of his 
college literature discussion group. Alumni from the distant past often 
reminisce over the tried-and-true methods employed by their English teachers, 
including summer reading, grammar drills, vocabulary, and every student's 
favorite two words: "Theme Day." This year also saw three new English teachers 
on the hill: Mr. Markham, Mr. Thompson, and Dr. Bligh. 

The department also brings an accomplished writer to campus each 
spring, and this year saw one of the most successful iterations of the Visiting 
Writer program. Novelist Kein Wilson not only shared his wisdom on storytelling 
with many classes over two days, but also gave one of the funniest assembly 
speeches ever with his tale of the egg dropped from the helicopter. All in all, it 
was another great year in English classrooms at MBA.

MBA challenges students on a daily basis to 
engage with the rest of the world through the 
study of other languages. Every boy at MBA 
takes at least two years of Latin, which proves 
incredibly beneficial as the years go by in 
either their continued study of Latin or as they 
move to another language of choice. From 
there, students are given the option to 
continue their study of Latin/Greek or to move 
on to a world language, including Spanish, 
French, Chinese, and German. MBA's Langauge 
curriculum is not limited to the classroom. 
Through international study programs and trips 
as well as extracurricular clubs, our students 
are truly and deeply gaining an understanding 
of a rapidly diversifying world. Each year the 
language students participate in a number of 
national language exams which allows them to 
test their knowledge against students in the 
area and country. Again this year the students 
had a number of gold medal winners and 
perfect papers in each language which is 
testament to the curriculum provided by so 
many dedicated educators.

Library and 

From Keeping the archives of the school up- 
to-date and accessible to helping students 
and teachers navigate the plethora of online 
information, the staff in the library are kept 
busy throughout the year. Ms. Klausner and 
Mr. Quinn keep a handle on the happenings 
in the library. From numerous traditional 
resources to the digital access students are 
provided with everything they need to 
complete their assignments as long as they 
bring the motivation. The library is always 
buzzing with activity from the time they open 
until they close the doors at the end of the 
day. Special thanks to Ms. Klausner who has 
run an efficient tool to help the students 
study and find resources for their various 
projects and themes, tier presence in the 
library will be missed next year. 

The technology department is kept busy 
throughout the year with the increasing use 
of technology in and out of the classroom. 
Led by Mr. Ardisson and his amazing team of 
Mr. Chambers, Mr. Reynolds, Mr. Woolwine, 
and the other Mr. Reynolds keep up with 
countless devices on campus. With updates 
and technology happening on an ongoing 
basis their office is never quiet and they 
always manage to keep their sense of 
humor, even when the network does not

students and faculty would be lost in the

The MBA science department is a major part of the MBA academic curriculum. All of the classes take place in the Ingram 
building, dedicated to E. Bronson Ingram (1931-1995), a successful businessman and a graduate from MBA in 1949. The 
current department, consisting of courses including Biology, Physics, AP Environmental Science, and AP Anatomy, follows the 
inspiration of Mr. Ingram. MBA's Science department is full of passionate, dedicated teachers. Though not all of the students 
who pass through Ingram hall will have careers in STEAM, they will acquire an appreciation for the Scientific method, and for 
the ways that the world around them can be understood through clear and discrete laws and principles. This year the 
department was led by Mr. Barclay and welcomed Ms. Greene and Dr. Lankford the beloved Ingram Building. The department 
as well as MBA also said "goodbye," to Mr. Chenery after thirty years on The Mill. Mr. Chenery's quick wit and and unmistakable

impact in the arts in significant ways whether 
it be in music, visual art or theater. This year 
Dr. Fuller took the reigns of the Visual and 
Performing Arts Department as everyone 
celebrated Mr. Womack's fortieth year at 
MBA. Musically, the numerous bands, the 
orchestra ensembles, and choirs performed 
all over campus, Nashville, Tennessee, and 
the country. In the visual arts students 
created art in a myriad of materials and have 
been able to display their art in many 
competitions around the area. The theater 
arts put on a series of shows including 
Zombie Prom, Argonautica, and Antigone. 
The Btudent-Directed One Acts serve as a 
vehicle for students to write, cast, and direct 
a show of their own. 

Art is a way for MBA students to escape 
the stress of their normal classroom 
environment and focus on their passions and 
to share their talents to their peers. The 
Visual and Performing Arts Department gives 
students a path to explore a whole new world 
to which they are not usually accustomed.

from these courses and experiences offered 
through the Visual and Performing Arts.

The 2018-2019 season was one of the 
most successful in the MBA Crew Team's 10- 
year history, with a record number of boys on 
the team. Of the 44 rowers, only nine were 
juniors or seniors, with the rest of the team 
being comprised of freshmen and sophomores, 
a clear mark of the team's rapid growth and 
bright future. Despite this relative youth, the 
team had a highly successful year. 

During the fall season, the team raced in 
five different regattas (a duel vs. McCallie, and 
races in Cleveland, downtown Nashville, Oak 
Ridge, and Chattanooga). The team finished the 
fall season at the Mead of the Mooch in 
Chattanooga, the largest fall regatta in the 
country, where the freshman 8+ won MBA's first 
medal from that regatta. 

Despite practice starting later than 
expected due to weather, the team experienced 
an equally successful spring season, with five 
regattas as well (two in Chattanooga, two in 
Zanesville, Ohio, and one in Culver, Indiana). 
The season concluded with four boats (the 
double, lightweight 4 and 8, and freshman 8) 
traveling to the National Championship in

and the freshman 8 finished 5th.

The MBA Cross Country team had one of its 
most successful seasons in almost a 
decade. The 2018 season opened in 
September with an impressive win in 
Knoxville in the Cherokee Classic; the 
Varsity won by a single point over forty-four 
other teams. Two weeks later, the varsity 
secured its first victory in Chattanooga since 
2010 in the McCallie Invitational. The peak 
of the season came in October, when the 
Varsity triumphed in the Fast Cats 
Invitational in Kentucky despite losing its 
number one runner, senior Graham 
Ragsdale, to injury. The squad then went on 
to reclaim the Metro Championship, with 
Graham Ragsdale claiming individual 
champion. At the T55AA 5tate Meet, the 
team narrowly missed a podium finish. 
Senior Graham Ragsdale obtained his 
second All-State recognition, and freshman

The Big Red football team had another

10-2. After the departure of 18 seniors in 
the previous season, there were plenty of 
open positions to be occupied. With college

Jackson Lampley, the Big Red were strong 
on both sides of the ball. After losing the 
fourth game of the season to a solid team 
from MU5, Team 120 had a seven game win 
streak which included toppling local rivals 
Ensworth and Brentwood Academy. A major 
highlight of the season was the overtime win 
against Brentwood Academy, the defending 
state champions. Stricken with many injuries 
on both sides of the ball, especially on 
defense, many young players stepped up 
and made key plays. Senior captains Ian Hall, 
Jackson Hannah, Tye Herbstreit and Hugh 
Sullivan led the Big Red to the State Semi¬ 
finals against Brentwood Academy. Even 
though the Big Red did not make it to the 
T55AA Championship it was surely a season 
to remember for Team 120.

The MBA golf team's Z018 season was one 
to remember. Starting the season off with a 
strong start at the DZ Preview in Memphis 
where the Big Red finished second to the 
Baylor School. Following the early success, 
the Big Red won the MBA Invitational and had 
several big wins throughout the season such 
as a 17 stroke thumping of Baylor in a dual 
match. The Z018 MBA golf team did not lose 
a stroke play dual match all season. In the 
T55AA State Championship, the Big Red held 
a share of first place after day 1 and looked 
to become the first MBA golf team to win a 
state championship in over three decades. 
Unfortunately, due to a slow start and an 
extremely hot Baylor team, the Big Red 
finished runner-up. The Big Red were led by 
seniors Charlie Buffkin, William Davis, and 
Jackson Singer. The Z018 MBA golf team 
was a closely knit group of guys who other 
teams could look up to as a model of how to 
act on the course. The future of the golf 
program at MBA looks just as promising and

The Big Red Rifles opened their season with 
strong victories over rivals Mt. Juliet and 
hlarpeth hall. Shortly following, they 
participated in the annual MBA Fall Rifle 
Classic, where the top squad of Max 
Buenahora, Jack Collins, Roy Claverie, and 
Alex Phillips finished second overall behind 
an out-of-state team. The Big Red Rifles 
would ride this momentum to the 2nd 
Annual American Legion Post 46 
Tournament, where the top squad would 
finish first. Following this match, the team 
would suffer its first loss of the season in a 
close match to Shelby County before closing 
out the semester. After the break, the Big 
Red Rifles would drop both the home and 
away matches to SLUM; however, they were 
on an upward trend. They corrected their 
season shortly at the 2019 CMP Junior 
Olympic Qualifiers, where the top squad 
would take first overall. Two weeks later, the 
top squad of Max Buenahora, Nick Bailey, 
Jack Collins, and Roy Claverie finished the 
state tournament with a 2291, which would 
be enough to win the 2018-19 State Title.

The varsity basketball team had an rocky season that was complicated through unprecedented levels of injuries and losing five of their 
squad from last year. Season highlights included big wins over Father Ryan, JPII, and overcoming a ten point deficit in the last tree minutes 
of the first round of the playoffs against Lipscomb. The team was led by Seniors blunter Burch, Joel Elasy, Josiah Francis, Zachary Jackson, 
Ross Johnson, and Flarrison Taylor. The group was resilient all year facing what seemd like constant adversity and never-ending obstacles. 
The growth and improvement of this squad was remarkable, and all the boys learned infinitely valuable life lessons. The future is bright, 
however, as the team's two leading scorers were sophomores and the freshman team won the league championship. Joel Elasy 
(Leadership), Zachary Jackson (Flustle), and sophomore lA/ill Montana (MVP) were the team's award winners at the end of year banquet. 
Also, seniors Zachary Jackson (Rose-Flulman), Ross Johnson (Rhodes), and Flarrison Taylor (Flampden-bydney) will continue their playing 
careers at their respective schools of choice.

After a solid 2017-18 season, the MBA 
varsity bowling program found the going 
tougher after the graduation of two seniors 
(their best bowler and their team captain), 
and finished with a 5-8 regular season that 
culminated in a 9-18 loss to Father Ryan in 
the first round of the Division II Middle 
Region Tournament. While the team might 
have struggled on the scoreboard, the 
program made strides in other ways. With 
16 bowlers, this squad (consisting of 1 
senior, 2 juniors, 5 sophomores, and 8 
freshmen), was the largest in the history of 
the program, and with 15 bowlers who are 
sophomores or younger, the future looks 
promising. Alex Flasse (senior and team 
captain) qualified for his first T55AA State 
Individual Bowling Tournament, finishing 
16th in a highly competitive field. Alex also 
became only the 2nd Big Red Bowler to 
average over 200 pins through a season, 
and bowled both the 10th highest game 
and 5-game series in MBA history. 
Additionally, Alex became the second 
bowler from MBA to be named a finalist for 
the Tennessee Mr. Bowler Award. 
Throughout the season, all members of the 
team embodied the MBA motto of 
Gentleman, Scholar, Athlete.

MBA's hockey program continued to take 
great strides during the 2018-2019 season. 
The Varsity squad, led by captains Matthew 
Haley and alternative captains Brandon 
MacDonald-Surman, John Dinkins, Alston 
Aron, had a very successful season which 
included a deep run into the grueling playoff 
battle for the Predators Cup. highlights 
during this run included big wins over Father 
Ryan, Independence, and Brentwood. 
Though they ultimately fell to Hendersonville 
in a shootout, the squad fought tough all 
year long. Varsity Hockey team finished the 
season 19-4-1, and reached the semifinals 
of the Predators Cup Playoffs. Selected for 
0MA5H league all-star were seniors Matthew 
Haley and Brandon MacDonald-Surman, 
sophomore Luke Haley, and freshman Tyler 
Laub. Junior Alston Aron was also invited but 
could not play in the game. MacDonald- 
Surman was also selected for The 
Tennessean's All-Midstate 2019 hockey 
team. Our Wallace School of MBA JV team 
finished undefeated (10-0-2) and won the 
league championship for the second year in 
a row.

The varsity swimming & diving team finished the 
dual-meet season 3-1. Forty of the team's forty-two 
athletes qualified for the MTH55A regional 
championship, making MBA the best represented 
men's team at the Regional meet. At Regionals, the 
team's divers led a very competitive team effort, 
sweeping the top three places in the 1-meter event 
for the second year in a row. 

At the TI5CA State Championship, the Big Red 
were powered to a ninth-place finish by excellent 
diving and strong relay performances. MBA's sixteen 
State qualifiers comprised the school's largest State 
team in the past six years. Two Sea Dogs earned 
post-season accolades: George Mabry was named 
to the Second Team All Region by the MTM55A for 
his performances at the regional championship, and 
Will Nahley was honored as Middle Tennessee's Male 
Diver of the Year. Nahley was also named to the 
Tennessean's First Team All Mid-State and was 
additionally chosen by the paper as a finalist for 
Men's Swimmer/Diver of the Year. 

The team's success this year would not have 
been possible without the leadership of its 
dedicated seniors, including four-year letter-winners 
Will Nahley, Brandon Hall, Marshall Summar, and co¬ 
captains Joe Owens and Jackson Lyell.

everything else in life is easy." The MBA 
wrestling team clearly demonstrated the 
truth of this quote throughout its season. 
They demonstrated the strength of body, 
mind, and soul required for success on the 
mat. The team was led by seniors Dominic 
Fisher, Blake Andrews, Doug Gaw, and Will 
Caver. Juniors Eric Russ, Robby Barnes, Dan 
McCguire, and Will higgins also played big 
leadership roles. The Big Red sent 9 
wrestlers to the T55AA State Individual Meet 
where the team would finish 5th in the state. 
MBA placed seven wrestlers, Dominic Fisher, 
Dan McGuire, Blake Andrews, Frank Perazzini,

The 2019 MBA Varsity Baseball Team had a 
great start to their season, winning three 
games in Orlando against elite talent while 
having great bonding time for the team. 
During the season the Big Red had big series 
wins over JPII, Lipscomb, and Brentwood 
Academy. The Big Red would finish the 
season with an 18-17 record led by seniors 
Cole Crider, William Btewardt, Blake 
Kirchenbaeur, Joseph Perazzini, Brenden 
Harris, Grant Ellison, and Christian Bchwartz. 
After receiving the five seed, the team beat 
rival BA in a three game playoff series that 
ended in a walk off bunt by Tripper Capps. 
Badly, the Big Red lost to Christian Brothers 
in Memphis in the second round of the 
playoffs ending the season. While the team

The lacrosse team had one of the best seasons in the programs history, finishing off the year with a 12-2 record. The 
team started off the season well by beating a good out-of-state Trinity team 1Z-9, and went on to solidify its dominance over 
the Nashville area by beating BH5 17-3, Ravenwood 11-6, Franklin 17-3, and JPII 15-2. Despite the great out-of-league 
performance by the team, their greatest success came from their league play. Beating Father Ryan 23-1, Baylor 14-3, CBN5 
13-5, and MU5 12-0, the team was only defeated by a talented Mccallie team, clinching them the second seed for the 
playoffs. Determined to succeed, the team was able to come from behind to beat MU5 10-8 in the semifinals, and then went 
on to win the first state championship in 13 years with a 9-8 victory against CBFI5. The team was lead in points by Stephen 
Avery, Steven Mason, and William Tyrone, and the dominant faceoff work by senior Garrett Murphy helped propel them to 
victory. This team also had one of the best defenses in MBA history thanks to the work of long poles Noah Mendoza, Peyton 
Brien, and Braden Myers, and the fantastic goalkeeping of Chris Tarquinio.

The Climbing team is one of MBA's newest and most original athletic groups. Throughout the year, the team practices at Climb 
Nashville, a state of the art facility on Charlotte Avenue which has over 16,000 square feet of climbing walls. Through this 
rigorous practice, the team built up its strength and took that experience with them to Long Mountain, where they have been 
taking advantage of the beautiful and challenging natural wall, as well as to other beautiful locales, and even Nashville climbing 
competitions! This year, Coach Bmyth led the team to a second place finish in the Climb Nashville Top Rope league and a First 
place championship in the Climb Nashville Bouldering League. This success ensures that MBA's Climbing program will continue 
to reach for the clouds in the years ahead.

Clubs Focusing 

t> tt rf& ffpt a 

MBA offers a variety of clubs for those 
students who wish to go further than the 
minimum requirement academically. These 
clubs offer students an opportunity to continue 
their study of traditional subject that are 
covered in classes at MBA (i.e the History Club, 
the Classics Club, etc.), or look into a field that 
is untouched by MBA's standard curriculum 
(Philosophy Club, Btock Market Club, 
Astronomy Club). These clubs meet 
throughout the year to have discussions, hear 
from speakers, and receive hands on 
experience in the field covered by the club. 
This year clubs hosted events during break and 
also after school and on the weekends to bring 
students together through shared interests. 
Through participation in these clubs students 
are able to truly get the most out of their MBA 
experience, further preparing them for life after 
they leave the Hill.

Each year academics move from the classroom onto the 
competition floor. Through programs including Envirothon, 
Science Olympiad, MathCounts, Junior Classical League, and 
Robotics, students can match their shills against those from 
other schools. Envirothon is a national level competition where 
teams answer questions about forestry, wildlife, aquatics, soils, 
and a special topic. Participants will cultivate a broad knowledge 
of these topics through outdoor field experience and individual 
study. The MBA Envirothon team is very competitive and has 
won multiple regional titles and a state championship with a trip 
to the national level competition. This years Envirothon team 
included Walker Byrd, Bam DeCoster, Mickey Kelly, Brandon 
Lewis, and Reagan Bparks. After a tough day one they were in 
third with 13 points separating the top 5 teams. After two days, 
MBA finished 3rd getting 554.67/ 700. 

This year MBA competed in the Science Olympiad Regional 
Tournament at T5U. The Division C (9-12 grade) team finished 
3rd in their competition, winning 6 events and medaling in 18 
out of 23, while the Division B (7-9 grade) team finished 1st, 
winning 9 events and medaling in 22 out of 23. Both teams 
qualified for the State Tournament held at UTK. Mathcounts did

There a many clubs to choose from on campus, no matter what 
your interests may be. This is especially true in the area of 
creativity. Clubs such as Big Red Boradcasting, Big Red Rocks, 
and Endada allow students to take on a variety of creative 
projects and roles throughout campus. Students have 
opportunities to lead the way with Endada and Big Red 
Broadcasting by being the ones responsible for the events from 
start to finish. There are also opportunities to join already 
established programs such as Photography Club, Big Red Rocks, 
and working on the staging theater productions. This variety of 
groups also includes the thespians that take the stage for 
musicals, plays, and one-acts throughout the year. This group is 
also responsible for the annual Bhakespeare-a-thon which raises 
funds to support the Nashville Shakespeare Festival and Endada. 
This year also saw the addition of a Digital Media Club which 
works with students on introducing them to a variety of computer 
software to create artwork. Each year this variety of clubs adds to 
the variety of campus activities to engage the right side of the 
brain for each MBA student.

MBA Debate 

Unsurprisingly, the debate team had another 
outstanding season this year. With multiple 
teams finishing in top places, the debate 
team continued their dominance from past 
years. Debaters Aden Barton and Julian 
ftabermann were crowned the top debating 
pair in the country, bringing further glory to 
MBA's already stellar debate program. The 
team won multiple tournaments around the 
country including the 64th Barhley Forum for 
high Schools at Emory, the (MDCA) National 
Championship in Chicago, and the invitational 
at UC Berkeley just to name a few. Julian 
Nabermann also received the 2019 Julia 
Burke Award for Character and Excellence in 
National Policy Debate. Though the team is 
losing seniors like Atticus Glenn and Julian 
Nabermann next year, all MBA students are 
looking forward to the success of the team 
next year, with returning debaters like 
Thomas Zeuthen and Aden Barton sure to 
continue the strong debate legacy at 
Montgomery Bell Academy.

defeated perennial state champions of Alabama and 
Georgia, while splitting ballots with Skyline high 
School, and falling in the fourth round to Eranklin 
high School (Md.). MBA finished eighth (our best 
result to date) and junior Aden Barton was 
recognized as one of the top attorneys. In February, 
MBA sent two teams to compete at the Davidson

Recognizing Students Through 


Of the numerous awards students can receive during their time at MBA, induction into one of the school's many honor 
societies is considered one of the most prestigious. When new students are inducted into these societies, the entire student 
body wears coat-and-tie to mark the significance of the induction ceremony. As new inductees are presented in assembly the 
student body warmly recognizes their accomplishments. Each of these honor societies has a specific purpose to their charter 
which is recognized within the MBA community. The MLK Society, recognizes students who have dedicated themselves to 
service and giving back to the Nashville community. The Cum Laude Society recognizes students based on academic 
achievement as well as faculty and staff members who have made specific contributions to their field. The most 
encompassing society is Totomoi, membership into which is determined by a combination of academic success, 
extracurricular participation and commitment, and dedication to service. Totomoi has two inductions each year with the 
society welcoming students and community members each fall and spring. Each of these distinct groups holds a place of 
honor on MBA's campus.

Language and Culture 

With such an excellent Foreign Language department 
featuring the most dedicated faculty imaginable, it is of little 
surprise that MBA's students find many opportunities outside 
the classroom to form and invest themselves in language and 
culture. Groups like MBAsia, La Bociedad Honoraria 
Hispanica, and African-American studies allow for crucial 
conversations about diversity and culture to occur. 
Furthermore, every language studied by the boys at MBA has 
its own club-French, German, Latin, Spanish you name it, 
there is a club for it. 

The World Language Gup is a fun way for each group of 
language students to compete on the soccer pitch. This year, 
Team France mimicked their World Cup counterparts "Les 
Bleus" by becoming champions. 

Particularly noteworthy is the Hispanic Achievers club, 
which seeks to form connections with the broader Hispanic 
community in Nashville. The Hispanic Achievers partner with 
Paragon Mills, in which MBA students design English 
Language courses for adult 5panish-speaking immigrants. 
This is but one example of how our clubs related to Language 
and culture offer our students the chance to bond in 
meaningful ways with the wider world.

Students are encouraged to not only to seek out their interests 
outside of school, but also through the plethora of clubs that 
are offered on The Mill. With an extremely wide range of 
opportunities and choices, the boys often find it difficult to not 
get involved one way or another 

Mr. Morrison's Food Club meets occasionally throughout

tournament, once again won by MBA. 

Mr. Davidson and the Chess Club meet frequently, with 
many matches occurring inside his classroom. With 
powerhouses like Lucas Pao and Dhruv Chandra at the helm of

also hosts competitions on campus for younger players in the 

Other clubs on campus this year include the Car Club, now

Each year new clubs are added to the roster 
of offerings at MBA ranging from artistic to 
athletic and personal interest. These clubs 
reflect the diversity of students and their 
interests. The new clubs this year included a 
Digital Media Club which focused on learning 
more about a variety of digital media 
platforms including Photoshop and Illustrator. 
With great interest from younger members of 
the MBA community this club has a bright 
future. This year also saw the inception of the 
Ducks Unlimited Club. This club focuses 
builds on a student's passion for hunting. Led 
mostly by graduating seniors this club will 
need younger students to take the lead in the 
coming year. There are also clubs that 
although not new to MBA were revived and 
strengthened this year. The Mountain Bike 
club took a stronger hold this year including 
competing against other trail riders. The 
Rugby Club took a stronger role this year with 
new recruits and and strong leadership. Only 
time will tell how these clubs will last through 
the years but given their strong start, their 
future is bright.

things going on it is left to these fearless 
individuals to go out and tell the stories that 
make MBA the unique place everyone knows 
and loves. Starting in the Junior School under 
the tutelage of Ms. Roberts and Ms. Overton 
the staff and editors of Top of the hill put out 
five publications each year including the 
highly anticipated April Fool's Day and 
Archives editions. With a staff of writers, 
photographers, and editors, The Bell Ringer 
never disappoints. Each issue is full of 
articles on topical issues and insights into 
sports and pop culture as well as happenings 
on The Mil. The annual publication of 
Archives, released on graduation night, 
demonstrates the creativity from the student 
body through its art and literature. Lastly, The 
Bell is created through a team of student 
staffers, contributors, and editors that work 
into the summer to create a permanent 
record of the school year. It is through these 
various publications that the MBA community 
stays engaged and has a lasting record of the 
events of the school year.

Service and 


Service has always been of great importance to MBA. Service 
opportunities like Canine Companions, Task Force Dagger, Last 
Minute Toy Store, Preston Taylor Tutoring, Best Buddies, 
Loaves and Fishes, Race for the Cure, Second Flarvest Food 
Drive, and more are sponsored by MBA's Service Club. These 
opportunities give students numerous chances to give back to 
the community. Lead by Dr.Rader, Ms.Williams, Joe Stevens 
(Service Club President), the Service Club has logged close to 
4,500 service hours over the course of the 2018-2019 school 
year. The variety of opportunities means there is something for 
everyone to give their time in a way that helps others. 

MBA also has several clubs focused on sustainability. 
Clubs like the Carden Club, the GLOBE Program, H.A.N.C., and 
the Sustainability Club are dedicated to the sustainability. 
These focus on helping reduce MBA's carbon footprint and 
being more sustainable with growing produce and recycling. In 
conjunction with these club's mission, service opportunities at 
Glen Leven and Fort Negley help to preserve the environment 
of the MBA community and the community beyond The hill.

Students Leading 

Each year students take on different leadership 
roles across campus. Upperclassmen are 
elected the previous spring to be in leadership 
roles from Honor Council to class officerships. 
The elected leaders start their planning and 
teambuilding through the elected leader retreat 
in early August. This day spent at Long Mountain 
includes obstacle courses, time planning for 
registration days, and time planning for the 
upcoming school year. Each leadership group 
has a different role on campus. From the Honor 
Council who make sure that students are 

abiding by the Honor Code they sign on each of 
their assignments to the Student Coucil who are 
responsible for a number of different events 
throughout the year. Some of their headline 
events are Spirit Week leading into Homecoming 
to the fifth annual Field Day. Each class also has 
a group of peers elected to be their class 
leaders who plan class specific events as well as 
fundraisers. These funds are eventually used for 
prom and a class gift left to the MBA community 
to commemorate their time on campus and give 
back to those that will follow them in the future.

Registration lUe ^ e^me 

Every year, both new and returning 5tudents arrive at MBA on a designated days before the first full day of school in order to 
slowly slide bach into the daily school schedule. This process includes the taking of a portrait picture for multiple uses 
throughout the school year, the collecting of the previous year's copy of The Bell, and the claiming of parking spots and 
lockers, both academic and athletic. Perhaps the most important occurrence during this time is each student's signing of the 
MBA register, which dates back to before MBA's founding in 1867 and draws its roots from predecessor Western Military 
Institute. In total, this process serves as a great way to address some of the upcoming events early in the school year. 

1. The Class of 2019 attends their final 
registration over their 6 year journey at MBA. 

2. Likewise, members of the Class of 2023 sign

228 Activities - 



Outside of MBA's busy classrooms and 
offices, there are various opportunities for 
students and faculty to further their Knowledge of 
material that is not taught in the scope of classes 
offered on campus. One of the most prominent of 
these expansions of learning is clubs. Clubs cover 
a range of academic, athletic, and other advanced 
topics not covered in the classroom and allow 
students to free themselves from the rigor of a 
typical day on The Mill. 

The annual Activity Fair allows students to 
visit with each club and decide which ones are 
right for them. Each club is sponsored by a 
member of the faculty and staff, but run entirely 
by the student leaders and their passion for the 
subject at hand. Borne of the most popular clubs 
among students include the Grill and Chill Club 
led by seniors Jackson Lampley and Jackson 
(Bausage) Link, which motivates students to 
support numerous athletic events by grilling hot 
dogs and hamburgers for spectators. FCA 
(Fellowship of Christian Athletes) led by senior 
Frank Wilk, which meets every Thursday during 
the school year to play games and worship, and 
the Outdoors Club led by seniors Cole Crider, 
Dominic Fisher, and Andrew Butphin, which 
encourages students to get outside and enjoy 
activities like hunting and fishing. The wide range 
of clubs offered and the students' enthusiasm 
towards them shows the growth of the student 
body's involvement in the MBA community.

College Fair 

Every year, MBA hosts a college fair to help students find the perfect college for them. With representatives from all types of 
universities, MBA students are exposed to a wide variety of colleges, and are encouraged to talk with the representatives that 
interest them. These colleges came from all around the United Btates to help give MBA students options for their post-MBA 
careers. Schools like the University of Southern California, University of Tennessee, University of Mississippi, Rhodes College 
and Miami University are a few colleges that came this year. The breadth of schools at the college fair allows students to look 
at a variety of schools in a short amount of time and start engaging at an early age since the fair is for freshman through 
senior. This exposure is vital to many MBA students preparation for life after The Mill. This search for the perfect college 
continues all year long as students can talk with representatives that come in at break weekly.

Homecoming 2018 

homecoming has become one of our school's most anticipated 
yearly events. This anticipation begins with the introduction of 
spaghetti supper tickets, which students sell in a competition 
to sell the most tickets. The winners of which can win prizes 
such as an Xbox and a puppy. This hype is complemented by 
the Mother's Club's participation in our weekly assemblies, 
providing various videos and randomly drawn prizes to 
invigorate the student body. This gradual buildup peaks in 
homecoming week, in which students are permitted to dress 
casually in different themes each day (such as College Day, 
Hawaiian Day, or Camo Day) and encouraged to attend the 
difficult to navigate yet highly rewarding bake sale, filled with 
copious amounts of puppy chow and candy. 

On the Friday of the homecoming game against White 
Station, the winners of the ticket competition received their 
prizes, and then returned later that night for an intense football 
game, spaghetti served by the freshmen, and a wonderful 
fireworks display. The following day, high school students 
reluctantly rolled out of bed to pick up their corsage 
alternatives and then freshened up for the dance. The 
Homecoming dance was a success, as students celebrated the 
culmination of all of the school's preparation for the past 
month. Thanks to all of our students, faculty, and parents for 
this yearly opportunity to spend time with friends, family, and

Long Mountain 

This year marks the eighth year of MBA's 
involvement on Long Mountain. The property 
was donated to the school in 2011, where a 
state of the art observatory was built. 5ince 
then, MBA has been constantly developing 
this campus, adding ropes courses, obstacle 
courses, disc golf course, and numerous 
student made trails. This year, Long 
Mountain's largest gathering, the FCA 
Retreat, took place earlier in the year. The 
camp out welcomed a large number of 
students who camped out under the 
leadership of Mr. Horton, who also held the 
Leadership Retreat there. The new class 
officers took part in team-building activities 
and encouraged each other through the 
ropes courses. The Father-5on Campout was 
also a big hit, bringing boys and their fathers 
to the property to bond over a weekend. In 
the upcoming years, the campus will 
undergo significant changes with multiple 
construction projects in the planning phases. 
Among these include the building of enough 
cabins to house an entire class of MBA boys 
(around 130), an airnasium where basketball 
and dodgeball could be played, and a full 
high ropes course. 

I. Newly elected class officers came up to Long Mountain to build their skills through challenging

MBA takes its traditions and ceremonies seriously. The yearly rites of passage are the bond that links all the young men who 
pass through the school's hallowed halls, back through the generations. Seventh graders receive a pin upon signing the 
register when they begin their journey. Freshmen are initiated into high school by receiving their jacket patches. Sophomores 
are encouraged to broaden their participation in the MBA community with a service ceremony. Perhaps most momentous of 
all is the Junior ring ceremony, in which the next student leaders of the school receive the symbolic touchstone that they will 
carry with them beyond their life at MBA. Each of these ceremonies brings with it a step along the path that so many before 
them have traveled and connects them to the longer line of both history and what will come in the future.

Father-Son Events, 

The MBA Father-5on Dinner is one of the largest events on MBA's campus during the school year, regularly drawing a 
crowd of well over 1000 people and filling the Big Gym to its maximum capacity. This year, with Peyton Manning as the 
Keynote speaker, more people attended than ever before. Mr. Manning spoke about relevant topics to the MBA community, 
including father-son relationships, hard work, dedication, and perseverance in the face of adversity, all of which was 
accentuated by the meal of Martin's Barbecue. Along with this great dinner, MBA hosted multiple father-son pancake 
breakfasts throughout the year, all of which helped to further bond the MBA community and allow students and their parents 
to better know their classmates and their families.

MBA's Mothers, The Backbone 

Students sometimes overlook the 
important role mothers play in their lives, but 
the mother-son events that MBA hosts are a 
chance to show honor and appreciate their role. 
At the mother-son breakfast, the MBA 
community heard anecdotes from numerous 
seniors about the importance of their mothers 
in their lives and encouraged students to 
thanks their own mothers for all the work they 
do. Following the seniors, former Olympic 
figure skater Scott Hamilton described how, 
without his mother, he would never have 
achieved the same level of success in a well- 
written, poignant, and succinct speech. 

During the year, MBA also honors its 
mothers in other ways, including multiple 
luncheons, such as the senior-mother 
luncheon shortly before Graduation, which 
serves as a final thank-you from the seniors to 
their mothers for all of their hard work.

Field day 2019 

$ l^ic l& n u 

The fifth annual field day saw the continuation of the ever 
growing rivalry between Cardinal and Silver. Scheduled on the 
first day bach from Spring Break, Field Day serves as a fun 
beginning to the final chapter of the school year. With the 
buildup of events during assemblies, school spirit could not have 
been any higher. Throughout the year students competed in an 
online chess tournament and the battle of the bands during 
assembly. These events kept the spirit of Field Day alive all year 
and with the addition of demerits and service hours playing a role 
in determining the point total the teams had before the big day 
everyone was invested. With the return of traditional events such 
as track, football, and soccer, many new events were added such 
as dodgeball, the sack race, and the three legged race. These 
new events, along with the redesigning of academic challenges 
created a more lively day of competition. The day began with an 
intense school wide dodgeball game in the gym which resulted in 
a quick Cardinal victory in the event. As the events continued 
throughout the day, every class made sure to try and keep track 
of which team was in the lead. The day wrapped up with the two 
main events, the tug of war and the 6x200m relay. Silver came 
out of both of these events victorious which secured their 
position as the 2019 Field Day Champions. Their flag will 
continue to fly high above the library till Field Day 2020. The 
Silver Flag will fly for the next year over the library until the 
teams meet again in 2020.

Prom 2019 

On sunny evening on April 6th, seniors, their dates, and 
parents filled the quad for pictures. The Mill was covered in 
colorful street art and graffiti which competed the scene for the 
night. From the time the seniors and their dates entered the 
transformed Dining Mall to the time they and the took to the 
dance floor for Prom 2019 they were surrounded by color and 
lights. While the juniors were scattered around Nashville in 
search of dinner before prom, the seniors were treated to a 
gourmet meal in the Dining Mall. The dinner was quickly 
followed by the traditional presentations of the seniors and 
their dates to a packed crowd of parents in the theater. As the 
seniors were announced they entered through the decorated 
wall of graffiti behind the stage. The murals were designed and 
installed by Nashville artist Troy Duff, who has also done work 
around Nashville and has been at multiple Endada Festivals. 
The students danced through most of the night with great 
music from the 12th 5outh Band who played a variety of great 
songs. The evening wound down with devoted dancers staying 
until the lights came back on. Special thanks goes out to the 
junior class officers for coordinating such a great experience for 
all involved.

prayer reflecting on the importance of this 
day. Following this, Salutatorian Nikhil

A Blast 


The 21st annual collaboration musical between harpeth hall 
and MBA, Zombie Prom, portrays a timeless love story with a 
radioactive twist. The show follows rebellious Jonny 'Without 
an IT Warner (John Thornton '20) as he transfers to Enrico 
Fermi high and falls in love with Toffee (Molly Bacurin '20). As 
the school year quickly progresses, Toffee, urged by zany 
Principle Deliliah Strict (Maddie harlan '18), her parents, and 
other adults, then breaks up with Jonnny. This breakup 
causes Jonny to dive head first into a nuclear power plant, 
resulting in a class 3 nuclear disaster and his death. The 
seemingly normal routine of Enrico Fermi high is thrown into 
chaos with the return of a zombie Jonny Warner, who 
attempts to regain admittance into the school with the help of 
F\eporter Eddie Flagrante (C.h. henry '21). From here, the 
show zooms to the prom night where a series of 
incomprehensible confessions come from the disciplinarian 
Ms. Strict, that Jonny is the son of Eddie and her. 
Performances by senior Aidan O'Dywer, junior Will Mader, and 
sophomores Ashton Terrell, as well as, senior Margaret Anne 
Whitton, juniors Maggie Sullivan, Isabel Long, and Lydia 
Crydier brought to life the Atomic '50s and aided in the 
success of the show. With Dr. Fuller as the director, Mrs. 
Hamilton as the choreographer, and Mr. Meredith as the 
music director, along with a student band and professional 
electric guitarist, the cast entertained fully houses over its 
four night run in the Paschall Theater.

The competition One-Act this year, Rashomon, tooh place at 
sister school harpeth hall. Directed by Ms. Klocko The story 
follows the arrest and trial of an infamous bandit, played by 
bophomore Ch henry, and explains the story from four different 
perspectives. Each story blurs the truth even more, leaving the 
watcher questioning which version is the correct sequence of 
events. Using a minimalistic set, yet effective set, they were able 
to create the feel of a bamboo forest while being able to move 
everything quickly (a key part of the competition in which they 
participated). Additionally, they brought in a profession 
choreographer to help create spectacular swordfights throughout 
the show. 

After an initial practice show, which was open to the public, 
the cast and crew traveled to annual Tennessee Theatre 
Association convention October 19th where they performed the 
play in front of a panel of judges where they received all 
excellent ratings. After the dust had settled, Junior Maggie 
Sullivan was named best Actress of the entire convention, and 
bophomore CM Menry and benior Maddie Marian were named to 
the All-btar cast. They cast and crew then returned to Harpeth 
Mall where they performed the show another three times before 
finally resting. Director Janette Fox Klocko praised the troupe, "I 
am beyond proud of how they represented Harpeth Mall and MBA 
at the TTA conference. Join me in congratulating them on their 
amazing achievement."

During the Z019 Fall Theater season, the MBA and harpeth Mall Playmahers put on Argonautika by Mary Zimmerman, an epic 
story following the Argonauts of Ancient Greece and the Gods and Goddesses that guided them. The tail followed the path of 
Jason (Luke Boyer), and his quest for the Golden Fleece in order to regain the throne from his uncle, King Pelias (James Minor 
III). With help from Mera (Lillian 5towe) and Athena (Maddie Marian), Jason and the Argonauts set sail on their quest, unsure of 
the future that awaited them. 

Made up of a diverse cast from freshmen and seniors of both schools, lots of time and teamwork went into the full 
production. Additionally, the full set, designed by Munter Woolwine and the cast, created the world in which the heroes sailed 
and fought. Eric Pasto-Grosby lead the choreography for the battle between the Argonauts and the evil skeleton army. Great 
job to the cast, crew, and most importantly to Dr. "King Cal" Fuller, for making all of this possible in the first place.

MBA One-Acts 

Every year, the final theater performance of the year features One-Acts directed by the seniors from the 5tudio Theater class. 
This year was a little different, mainly because their were only two seniors, Kanayo Offodile (Superheroes) and Caleb Tolbert 
(Chech Please: Take 2). In addition to the two seniors, MBA Alumni, and former directors, Mr, Woolwine (Medea) and Mr. Berry 
(Oedi) directed One-Acts. Medea, the first show, explores the play-that-goes-wrong while following Medea after her split with 
Jason. The following show, Oedi, is a comedic take on the traditional story of Oedipus Rex. Check Please: Take 2, the third 
show, explores the different people that one may meet while dating, ranging from someone who is always on their phone to a 
pirate. The final show, Superheroes, consisted of a series of scenes where both Marvel and DC superheroes found themselves 
in everyday life following a drastic crime drop. Altogether, these 4 shows served as a fitting finish to a great theater year.

students. The band traveled to Murray, 
Kentucky to participate in the Jamey Aebersold 
Jazz Festival for the first time, where they 
earned all superior ratings! A jazz combo went 
on a jazz history tour to Memphis, Clarksdale, 
MB and Indianola, MB. In addition, the band 
sent one boy (Jason Zhu) to perform at the 
Tennessee All-State Convention! Next year the 
band is excited about a new class: Big Red 
Rhythm - A class designed specifically for 
rhythm section musicians, focused on teaching 
specific techniques and skills through a wide 
variety of music. We are excited about the new 
possibilities this will bring to the music program 
at MBA!

During the 2018-2019 MBA school year, the 
Orchestra program continued to evolve 
under the leadership of Mr. Merideth. This 
year more students joined the orchestra 
program which strengthened its musical 
talent and tradition. 

The orchestra participated in many concerts 
throughout the year, including Admissions 
Preview Day, the Fall Concert, and the Spring 
Music Celebration. The three separate 
orchestras, Chamber, Sinfonia, and Prelude, 
highlight the different levels of talent and 
musical learning. While the orchestras do 
perform at separate events, they also 
perform as one group. In addition to 
performing at concerts and recitals, Chamber 
Orchestra also participated in important 
school events, such as Totomoi, the Patch 
Ceremony, the Ring Ceremony and Cum 
Laude. The Chamber Orchestra also 
participated in both the State Concert 
Festival in Clarksville and the Concert Festival 
at Centennial. The 2018-2019 school year 
was the last year for Orchestra Director 
Merideth, who has consistently built up the 
program for the past nine years and whose 
presence and laughter will be missed next

Studio Arts 

Cnees ftvttif pn tlte Ht// 

The art department this year has been at an all time high. With may 
awards among the students and plenty of spectacular pieces being 
made, the 2018-2019 year did not disappoint. At the Middle 
Tennessee Regional Student Art Awards Ceremony, MBA had multiple 
students earn awards. In the spring semester at Scholastics thirteen 
students won at least one gold hey, and fourteen students won at least 
one silver hey. The department also welcomed internationally hnown 
artist Bleh Le Rat in the fall to both install murals on campus and also 
teach students about his process and inspiration. This led to many 
students experimenting in new ways and with new materials over the 
course of the year. This year's studio art department started out with 
four teachers: Ms. Valentine-Cichetti, Mr. Womack, Ms. Mollifield, and 
Ms. Bwieca-Brochman. however, the school had to say goodbye to Ms. 
Valentine after the first semester as she moved to a different state. But 
for the second semester, Ms. Hanagan stepped in her place and has 
done a wonderful job filling in such a big role. The MBA community also 
said goodbye to one of its teachers and one of the biggest influences in 
the art department: Mr. Womack. Mr. Womack has been with MBA for 
forty years, and he has helped build the art department from just an 
elective to all of the classes that it offers today, hot just studio art, but 
the entire art building would not be here if it was not for this amazing 
gentleman and the hard work that he has done for this school over his 
forty years of being here.

Jtt It 10 /* S-C fioof 

Mrs. Angela Klausner joined the MBA 
community in 2011, as the head Librarian. 
With her degrees in Library Science from the 
University of Mississippi and years of 
experience around the country, Mrs. Klausner 
was well prepared to lead the way at MBA. 
Under her leadership the Patrick Wilson Library 
made many steps in modernization including 
enhanced digitization of the catalog, library 
guides to help students navigate their reading 
assignments, and summer reading guides so 
students can get the most out of each word 
read. Mrs. Klausner also took on the title of 
School Archivist and led the way to digitally 
archive over 150 years of school history. This 
included working with volunteers to scan and 
organize every school paper, yearbook, and 
piece of memorabilia she could track down. 
This effort led to the publication of a 
celebration of Montgomery Bell Academy to 
coincide with the 150th anniversary of the 

Mrs. Klausner is known not only for her 
amazing organizational skills but for her love 
of the students who enter the library, her 
welcoming smile and helpful nature brings 
students back again and again, ho year would

party in the library complete with themed 
costumes and treats for everyone on campus. 
Mrs. Klausner's legacy at MBA is rooted in her 
love for the students and creating systems to 
preserve the history of MBA. her smile, 
dedication, and leadership will be missed but 
the MBA community wishes her well. It is with 
great pleasure that The Bell staff dedicate this 
section of the yearbook to Mrs. Angela

Build a Boat, 
C^frn^ -a- Ti&j&e' 

As the 2018-2019 school year Kicked off, one hundred 
twenty one seventh graders started to know one another and 
what better way to do so than a retreat. On September 12, 
2018 the class of 2024 head off to Camp Laney in Mentone, 
Alabama for three days. The camp trip had many exciting team 
building activities, but two of them stood out amongst the rest. 

There were a total of 6 trials in order to prove the bravery 
of these students. The ordeals were called "Climbing", "Zipline", 
"high Traverse", "Pamper Leap", "Bonia", and the "Kamikaze". 
"Climbing" and “Zipline" are rather straightforward, and "high 
Traverse" is a rope walk suspended in the air. In "Pamper Leap" 
someone has to jump from a pole about 30 feet high to grab a 
trapeze, and "Bonsai" is essentially a smaller version of 
"Kamikaze" in which someone has to travel through suspended 
tracks before jumping off while on a swing. The true test had 
not begun until the seventh graders started the rope 
challenges. Many of these games can be stressful and 
communication and trust are paramount. To finish the retreat, 
the seventh graders had to put their heads together for a team 
building contest. 

Additionally, Each cabin was given the challenge of building 
a boat that a person could float across Lake Laney. The only 
materials are cardboard, tape, and a plastic sheet for water 
resistance. The goal of the challenge is to move across the lake 
as many times as possible before sinking. Communication and 
problem solving are a key components in order to win. Many 
cabins form strategies, but nevertheless many boats sink 
before traveling half-way. Out of all of the failures one boat 
emerged victorious known as the "Back Flip Boat" from cabin 
seven. These days provide so many opportunities for the class 
to create bonds that will last throughout their time on The Mill.

The Junior School Evening with the Arts program is an 
event which culminates to a dedication of the junior schoolers' 
fine arts. Twice a year students, parents, faculty, and friends 
gather in the Paschall Theater to celebrate the previous 
semester's creativity. Throughout the hour long event there are 
performances from the theater classes, chorus, band, orchestra, 
and recognition of the visual artists. Parents and family are 
invited to this evening to share this time with their emerging 
artists. As attendees proceed to the theater they stop to admire 
the artwork along the hallway walls. The Paschall Theater was full 
to the brim as all enjoyed and listen to the J5 lingers choir, the 
Prelude Orchestra, and the Cardinal and Silver Bands. The 
theater students put on both original pieces as well as short 
pieces from Shakespeare. The fall event included original works 
that focused on the ideas of transformation from the theater 
students. These original works spoke to both literal and 
theoretical transformations, even one where a student was 
changed into an art making rat, a slight homage to visiting artist 
Blek Le Rat. The night also included addresses from Mrs. 
5tewrart and Mr. Oioia to welcome the attendees and to 
recognize the importance of the arts at MBA.

The Frogs 

During the second semester, the Junior School 
Players continued the focus on classics this year 
with The Progs, adapted for the stage by Don 
Zolidis from Aristophanes' original ancient Greek 
comedy. Prom January 24-26, Mr. Berry brought 
to life this modern version which satirizes modern 
pop culture and provided fun for all ages. In the 
play, Dionysus (Prank Pierce) and his trusty 
servant Xanthias (Mary Alice Pierce) are on a 
mission to save humanity from mindless 
entertainment by rescuing William Bhakespeare 
(Benedict Urbancyk) from the Underworld. 
Unfortunately, a chorus of reality-TV-loving demon 
frogs threaten to ruin his plans. Director Berry 
expressed his pride in the group for their 
commitment and strong effort: "Our seventh and 
eighth graders, many of them performing for the 
first time, put tremendous energy and 
enthusiasm into this show, making it one of the 
most fun performances I have had the honor of 
directing. I am exceptionally proud of their hard 
work and of my colleagues' wonderful help in 
making it such a success." Mrs. Bassett's "spot- 
on" performance as Jane Austen and faculty 
cameos by Ms. Bwieca-Brockman, Mr. Klausner 
(as Old Guy) and Mr. Morrison (as Foreign Guy) 
were inspired touches that delighted the student 
cast members and audiences alike.

Eighth Graders' Atlanta Trip 

The Atlanta trip was a time for 8th graders 
to celebrate the end of the year with fun and 
work-free environment. The students stopped en 
route to Atlanta at the Chattanooga Aquarium to 
see fish and touch stingrays. As soon as they 
arrived in Georgia, it began to rain, but that did 
not stop them from attending a baseball game : 
Braves verse the Cubs. As the Cubs were 
winning the matchup, the MBA students could be 
seen hollering on the jumbotron. Rain again in 
the forecast on day two made paintball 
showdowns so much more slippery and messy. 
Later in the afternoon, at Andretti World, the 
boys competed in go kart racing followed by 
arcade games. On the final day of the trip in 
Atlanta the eighth graders ventured into Six 
Flags. Many students set their eyes on the 
thrilling Goliath, the daunting Acrophobia, or the 
terrifying Dare Devil Dive. The journey came to 
an end with a long ride back to Nashville as most 
fell asleep, played UNO or practiced Mark 
Antony's Funeral Speech in preparation for their 
recitation. Overall, the trip was exciting and 
active and was a fitting way to end the year.

Big Brother/ Little 

one of MBA's greatest traditions, the Big Brother/Little Brother 
program pairs a Senior with a Seventh Grader, giving the former 
an opportunity to develop mentorship shills, and offering the 
latter an easier transition onto the Hill. The program kicked off 
the year with the annual pizza party on August 9th, in which the 
big brothers picked up their 7th grade little brothers from their 
homes on the first day of registration. The purpose of the day is 
to introduce the Little Brothers to MBA, to eat another great meal 
served by SAGE dining, and to listen to a speaker. They also 
participated in the service half day before fall break, while the 
9th-llth grades were taking the P5AT, and held the annual 
halftime event on September 7th. All of these events were very 
successful, not to mention very fun, and are great ways for 7th 
graders to see examples set by the seniors of what MBA is and 
presents the idea of a Gentleman, Scholar, Athlete.

Celebrating the 

fotlPVfrW' && ft / 

On Tuesday, May 28th, the Junipr School convened with 
their faculty, mentors, and families to recognize the numerous 
achievements of the Class of 2023 and 2024. MBA's Junior 
School is of of the most foundational and formative periods of 
any young man's life, and these boys felt quite grateful to be 
recognized for taking the all-important next step across the 
stage and into High 5chool. 

It was a beautiful night all around. The Junior School 
5ingers kicked off the festivities with a rousing and appropriate 
rendition of "Stand By Me." The song accurately encapsulates 
one of the most crucial aspects of being a Junior Schooler at 
MBA: the life-long friendships that one forms over two years. 
Diplomas were handed out to eighth graders in recognition of 
their transition into high school, and students from both 
classes were honored with special awards in academics, 
athletics, the arts, and other fundamental areas such as 5chool 

The sights and sounds of Junior School Honors night will 
undoubtedly be blazing in the memories of these young men 
for years to come. For the Class of 2023, it was a lovely way to 
commemorate their last day as Junior Schoolers as they stride 
confidently into life as high schoolers. 

I. Gerard O’Keefe accepts his award from Mr. Giois. 2. H Mclllwain, 
Gerard O’Keefe, Walker Musser, Mecho Patikas lead the way to their 
seats during the traditional procession for the night. 3. Linder a clear 
sky with a slight breeze students, parents, and faculty enjoy the 
annual performance by the JS Singers, who always impress. 4 ■ In the 
staging area outside the Curry Gymnasium students gather with their 
classmates before the evening formally begins.

On your first day at MBA, you 
were late. Your senior big brother 
had overslept. In spite of the 
nerves and fear that come with 
the first day at a new school, with 
your classic Walker wit, you sat 
down in the driveway and 
pretended to "take a nap". You 
had this. 

As challenges intensified at MBA 
beyond being late to school, you 
faced them with the same sense of 
humor and confidence. 

You were often frustrated but 
never defeated, working hard and 
keeping your head up even when 
you felt you were out of steam. 

As we approach your last day at 
MBA, we are more proud of you 
than we can ever say. Your positive 
attitude and smile has always won 
in the end. You are going to do 
great things. You already have. 

We love you, 

Mom and Dad

Love, Mom, Dad, Savannah, Scarlett Mae ami 

It's not the critic who counts; not the man who points 
out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of 
deeds could have done them better The credit 
belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose 
face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who 
strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the 
great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; 
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high 
achievement, and who at the worst if he fails, at least 
fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never 
be with those cold and timid souls who neither know 
victory nor defeat. - T. Roosevelt

"For I know the plans I have for 
you, declares the Lord, plans to 
give you hope and a future." 
So, wherever this next phase of 
life leads you, go confidently. 
Sprinkle kindness and 
compassion along the way. 
Choose joy, and make each 
new day even better than 
the one before it. 

You are a jewel, Caleb, 
and we love you.

"Don 't be trapped by 
dogma - which is living with 
the result of other people's 
thinking. Don't let the noise 
of others' opinions drown 
out your inner voice. And 
most important have the 
courage to follow your 
heart and intuition." 

Steve Jobs

"Twenty years from now you will be 
more disappointed by the things that 
you didn’t do than by the things that 
you did do. So throw off the bowlines. 
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch 
the trade winds in your sails. Explore. 

Dream. Discover." 

Mark Twain 


Garrett Murphy 

The milestones that you have reached 
continue to grow - in athletics, academics, 
music and service. But your compassion, 
generosity and love for everyone around you 
are your greatest strengths. Your care for 
others is evident in so many of your heartfelt 
actions, whether it is a pat on the back, an 
encouraging word, or a genuine compliment. 

We know you have an 

amazingly bright and successful future ahead 
of you, and we can't wait to see the positive 
impact you will have on the world. 
Always maintain your deep faith in God and 
put Him first in your life. 

We love you more than words can express. 

Love, Mom and Dad

Christian. We are so proud of you. 

Your journey has not been easy but you 
approached every challenge with 
determination, hard work and an 
indomitable spirit. Parents are supposed to 
be an inspiration to their children but 
instead, it is you who continues to inspire us. 

It is a pleasure to watch you put so much 
passion into everything you do. 

You are such a compassionate and gentle 
young man - you always have an 
encouraging word for everyone. But it has 

been the kind words and respect of your 
classmates, their parents, your teachers, and 
your coaches that truly define you. There is 
hardly a day that someone doesn't 
compliment us on what a great kid you are. 

As the Wizard of Oz said, "A heart is not 
judged by how much you love; but by how 
much you are loved by others." 

We love you and are so excited to see what 
is next for you. 

Love, Mom, Dad, Alison, Maria

The 2019 issue of The Bell was produced by the yearbook staff at Montgomery Bell Academy 
in Nashville, Tennessee and printed by Herff Jones, Inc. in Kansas City, Kansas. The account 
was expertly serviced by representative Mary Harris (thank you for the chocolate and 
coffee). All page layouts were produced and edited at MBA using eDesign and digitally 
submitted for production. The 2018-19 volume includes 376 pages in full color. Professional 
portraits were provided courtesy of Michael Jones Photography. 

Countless hours go into the production of The Bell and, although this work usually happens 
behind the scenes by a group of staff, editors, and faculty it would not be possible without the 
help of the larger MBA community. It is impossible to thank each person who offered an 
element to the book, but special thanks go out to the following who made extensive 
contributions in the production: 

The dedicated staff, led by Editor-in-Chief, Roy Claverie, Editors: Middleton Henry 
(Junior School), Wesley Hirschman (Academics), Ben Lindsey (Arts), Steven Mason 
(Layout), Luke McSween (Activities), Clay Overholt (Classes), Wylie Ritter (Clubs & 
Organizations), Cole Williamson (Athletics), and Staff Members: Bela Arwen, Darin Hall, 
Harrison Holman, Jax Leasure, Jed Neal, Ben Patterson with contributions from Luke Boyer, 
Cameron Jacobson, Ben Galanter, Danny Garcia, William Huber, Elliot Lyell, Evan Smith, and 
Ross Sonday. Special thanks to everyone who came in and helped work on the book into the 

The countless photographs taken and shared by Michael Jones Photography, Rick 
Malkin, Dr. Fuller, Mr. Norton, Ms. Raines, Mrs. Roberts, Mr. Smith, Mrs. Thombs, Mr. Tillman, 
and the rest of MBA's amazing faculty, staff, students, and parents. Thanks to everyone who 
helped identify students featured in a photograph, especially Mrs. Lechleiter. 

As this page gets submitted, the staff will be celebrating the end of a project which has taken 
just over 10 months. Yes, I’m aware that once again we did not quite finish on time, however 
we are getting progressively closer, and with any luck we will finish earlier next year. With 
that being said, there are some people without whom we would have never finished. First of 
all, thank you to the entire staff. More specifically, thank you to Steven Mason for 
quarterbacking the designs, Clay Overholt for his backbreaking work on the senior pages, 
Middleton Henry for being an amazing Junior School Editor, and Wesley Hirschman for his 
willingness to complete any task we threw at him. Additionally, a huge thank you to Mr. 
Thompson for joining our staff this year and helping to crank out pages into July. And finally, 
thank you to Ms. Swieca-Brockman. Quite literally she has poured days, if not weeks, of time 
into carefully editing this book in order to make sure it is of the highest quality, and who 
without, we would truly never finish. I hope that in flipping through this book, everybody will 
be able to remember the good times that we had throughout the year. “That’s all folks”
