The Magazine

Brewster, the magazine of Brewster Academy, is published twice a year and mailed to alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends of Brewster Academy. It aims to highlight the important work of the school in fulfilling its mission to prepare diverse thinkers for lives of purpose, offer insights into current campus life, celebrate our alumni, and share moments that remind us all of our connection to the beautiful school by the lake.

MEET THE NEW EDITOR

Meet Suzanne Morrissey, the new editor of Brewster’s magazine, who shares a bit about her somewhat unusual professional path to Wolfeboro in her inaugural Editor’s Note, as well as her gratitude for the warm welcome she has received: “Time and again parents, students, and faculty have told me, ‘There really is something special about Brewster’,” she says. “How true! A thread of devotion to alma mater runs through this place, as does a deep sense of care for students that is present in every meeting, at every event, and in every class.” Do you have some fresh story ideas for Suzanne? She’s all ears! Contact Suzanne at smorrissey@brewsteracademy.org.

We look forward to sharing even more photos and insights as our observance of Brewster’s 200th birthday spills into the new year!
