Honoring Our Veterans

One of Andover’s mottos is “non sibi.” We take pride knowing that our school is firmly-rooted in the continued tradition of fostering selfless and global awareness in students. Yet despite such initiatives as Non Sibi Day and Andover’s commitment to service, the men and women in our nation’s armed forces often play a faceless role at our school. Members of the Andover community tend to lead incredibly busy lives, and we rarely take the time to acknowledge the actions of those in the armed forces who serve to defend our right to even have an “Andover community.” We hardly ever stop to appreciate the selflessness of people like Hanson Causbie ’08, Dale Hurley, or Mr. and Mrs. Efinger, and in that regard, their work is faceless. On Veteran’s Day and every day it is important to acknowledgethe selflessness and dedication of our nation’s past and present armed servicemen and women.
