Tacoma, Wash. - Every fall, 2014 Inspirational Faculty Award Winner Catherine Grider—who has a number of relatives and friends who are part of the Nisqually and Yakima tribes—leads a unit on Native American history in her class. "My family has always had a strong connection with Northwest Coast tribes," Ms. Grider said. "We are from the Yakama Nation. I knew that sharing some of these native traditions could be meaningful for my own children and for our CWA community."
The fall athletic teams played hard, competed competitively even during a rebuilding year for some squads, and enthusiastically played with heart. The Tarrier spirit, grit, and determination were present throughout the season. Athletic Director and Upper School Head Bill White said he is “proud of our teams, players, coaches, and fans for their commitment to hard work and sportsmanship.”
