Mr. Fortunato led us through our “Thankfuls” in the final Chapel before Thanksgiving Break and welcomed our staff onto the stage. The Blair community welcomed them with roaring applause. Members of the Admissions, Advancement, Grounds, Health, and Athletics Department gave short speeches on what they were grateful for. The speech given by Blair’s athletic equipment manager, Gerard Giuricich, who we know warmly as “Doc G,” was particularly memorable. Wearing a Santa hat and reimagining the student body as 6 and 7 year olds to soothe his nerves, he touchingly thanked the community for being his Blair family.
With Thanksgiving Break only two short days away, this chapel reminded all of us to consider what we are grateful for and to finish the week strong. The Oracle team thanks you all for making Blair “Blair”!
