Congratulations to Davis Curry, '17, winner of this year's Canterbury Tales competition! Davis, along with classmates Kiran Ahluwalia, Peyton Feuer and Sam Hebert, recited the prologue to Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales" in the original Middle English during chapel on Monday. Each year, the top performers from the English classes compete, and a panel of judges selects the winner based on presentation, pronunciation, and understanding of the language.
Lillian Guidry, '06, and her sister Caroline Guidry Albano, '02, spoke in chapel about engineering in the real world, their educational and career paths, and how ESA gave them a start. Lillian has a BS in civil engineering from Columbia. She spends her evenings in MBA classes at NYU, and her days as a civil engineer for Skanska in New York, where she has worked on the World Trade Center, a new subway line, bridges and recently, an airport. Caroline, who has a degree in mechanical engineering from Columbia, an MS from Georgia Tech and an MBA from Harvard, is consulting for Price Waterhouse Cooper. Thanks for the great intro to engineering, Caroline and Lillian!
Brett Landry, '95, came back to ESA in August of 2014 to give his Senior Chapel - twenty years late - and to introduce the ESA Experience book to our community. Brett works as a creative director in New York City, and has recently started his own company, Good vs. Evil. Thanks for sharing your creative genius with ESA, Brett!
