Charlie Cost was remembered at a recent school meeting by virtue of a presentation by Ross Gordon ’13, the most recent Cost Award recipient. He spent a month in Dakar, Senegal and with his $2,500 stipend worked with two local schools (after winning over the imams and chiefs of those towns) and purchased for them each a laptop, a multi-function printing device and a case of paper. He spent the rest of his time teaching computer skills and English. Two of the educators from the towns will be visiting scholars at Deerfield this Spring – working with the Arabic and French classes.
A life changing experience delivered by the Cost family. Thank you Charlie.
