Lynne Wavering Shotwell ’60 (1995)
Perhaps Lynne Shotwell began to love North Shore when she was in kindergarten, maybe it wasn't until she was Chip Shotwell's lab partner in Will Talley's Physics class, but dedication to the School seems part of her family. Her father, Elmer Wavering, established the Vera D. Wavering Sabbatical Program in memory of her mother, and Lynne, after 14 years as a student here, has spent the last 15 as a parent- of Molly '87 and Henley '95.
During these years, she embodied our "Live and Serve" philosophy. She has been a tireless and creative room parent. She has cheered on Raiders in all seasons, undeterred by sleet or snow. She has sewn costumes for the theater, cheerfully dished up countless plates of food in the cafeteria, been President of the PA, Chairman of the Woman's Board Auction, and is now Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees.
Everyone knows Lynne for her artistic talents, her organizational skills, her endless enthusiasm, and the way she energizes others to work hard at her side and enjoy themselves in the process. She looks at life as all opportunity to make things work, to help others, and to make people, happy.
If something will help the School, almost anything becomes Lynne's job always done with a smile and her inimitable sparkle, both literal and figurative. It is with both gratitude and affection that I present Lynne Wavering Shotwell with the Foster Hannaford Recognition for her devoted service to North Shore Country Day School.
