Terry Culleton, Ralph Lelii, and Paul Machemer ’65 were celebrated at the George School Closing Banquet on Tuesday, June 11, 2019.

Carl Jung believed that the origin of evil in the world is the fact that people are not able to tell their stories. Students too have their dreams and forgetting that is to forget the essence of this thing we do. Terry Culleton has been dedicated his whole career to letting students tell their stories, to look inside and awaken rather than outside and to simply dream.
Paul Machemer ’65 has faith in his students. He teaches, he coaches, he encourages, he inspires. Soon his conviction becomes their confidence, their willingness to work hard and take risks. Coaching in the classroom, teaching on the field or court, Paul’s standards are high, his expectations aspirational, his results kind of phenomenal.
Ralph Lelii has given his students and advisees unconditional respect. He’s made IB students feel that their hard work is valued and valuable. For Ralph the stewardship of students’ intellectual development and emotional well-being has been a sacred trust.
