Lisa Willoughby ’91 will soon travel to the World Stunt Kite Championship in Berck-Sur-Mer, France to compete in the international stunt flying competition. Fellow enthusiasts, following nearly 30 years of competing, have noted her as a top player in the sport. Speaking of her first flying competition Willoughby said, “I won it. Within six months I got a sponsorship, because very few women fly and I was flying at a very high level.”

Upon moving to the United States from Lebanon in high school, Angelo Bechara ’17 was struck by how unaware young Americans seemed to be about the growing national debt. This fall, Bechara visited the annual Clinton Global Initiative University to bring attention to the Up to Us program. “Millennials need to be caring about this issue because, unfortunately, we’re going to have to deal with it,” Mr. Bechara said. “Many of our representatives in Washington aren’t being so vocal, and that may be because they are not going to have to deal with the repercussions.”
