Welcome from the Student Co-Heads of School

Posted by Fiona Moore '20 and Jack LeBrun '20 on Aug 26, 2019 10:38:25 AM

Together, as the co-heads of school, our goal is to celebrate everyone's individuality by building upon our inclusive environment. Being “the big dogs” this year, we also hope to bring energy to different aspects of the school, lifting up all the people around us. Tabor has such a diverse community, but whether you are American or international, boarding or day, an athlete, an artist, or whatever your interest, we want to make sure that every individual feels important and a part of something bigger than themselves this year.

"Let Your Light So Shine That Others May Be Your Good Work"

Posted by John Quirk on Sep 12, 2017 3:27:31 PM

In 1968, not too long after I was born, Andy Warhol, the iconic pop artist known for his Campbell’s Soup Cans declared: “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for fifteen minutes.” Without going too far into it, he was referring to his belief that the hierarchies of the world of that time were dissolving quickly, that lines were blurring. To him, and to his contemporaries, this meant simply that the opportunity for things or people to be worthy of fame were unbounded, in the absence of habitual delineations, and therefore that anybody – or actually everybody – could be famous. A plain old can could be Mona Lisa’s equal. I don’t think Andy Warhol could possibly have imagined the rise of YouTube or other social media, where the most mediocre of people can be famous for a time. Nor could he have imagined that, like regular people or regular soup cans, ideas or memes – even regular ones, even terrible ones – can gain fame and support. Still, he seems to have been essentially correct. In the future – meaning today, if looking forward through a decades old lens – everyone can enjoy some level of fame.
