Zoomside Chapel Talks

March 10, 2021 shona

Let's celebrate & explore Midland's legacy together, online.

Paul Squibb often referred to Chapel as the space to explore and investigate the “unknown and unknowable.” He believed that the conversations and topics covered in Chapel talks form the “heart and center” of Midland life, providing space to “ventur[e] into regions that [we] otherwise would never bother to venture into.” Whether you’ve had the privilege of attending one chapel or many, or have simply heard the myth of them through the Midland grapevine, you know the impact they leave on the listeners and speakers alike, just as Squibb intended.

Following this cherished tradition, we invite you to venture into the regions of unknown with us through a series of Spring Gatherings: Zoomside Chapel Talks. In each gathering, 2-4 distinguished guests (alumni, current students, parents, board members and more) will explore the legacy of Midland’s Mission & Values. Following the 5-7minute talks, we’ll open the Zoom for small discussion groups.

We will culminate the Zoomside Chapel series with a Zoom celebration of the John Dreyfuss Distinguished Alumni Award, honoring our 2020 Awardee: Jon Cosby.  

Also be sure to join us for A Special Announcement by Midland’s Head of School, Christopher Barnes, about the future of Midland at the end of the event series.
