North Shore Country Day graduate Kali Pfannerstill, Class of 2020, was recently featured in the Lawrence University athletics news. Kali played volleyball at NSCD where her mother, Jen Pfannerstill, was a science teacher and volleyball coach. Jen was a Lawrence graduate and also played on the volleyball team.
Jen died from breast cancer in 2018 and Kali led Dig Pink events at NSCD in her honor. Now Kali and her Vikings teammates will honor Jen on Friday, October 8, at the Dig Pink match against Grinnel College. Dig Pink is an annual volleyball event for athletes, coaches, schools and communities. The event helps raise awareness and funding for metastatic breast cancer research and treatments.
Dig Pink match takes on a special meaning for Pfannerstill
North Shore Country Day’s annual 10-minute play festival “Take 10” returned to the stage on April 13. For the first time in three years, students performed their original plays in front of a live audience with performances in the NSCD Auditorium.
All seven plays were written, produced and directed by students in the upper school directing class. Some were based on personal experience, observations and media events, while others stemmed from pure creativity. Once the scripts were finalized, the student directors held auditions, cast the roles and ran their own rehearsals.
