Phil Nussenzweig, a Dalton alum from the Class of 2007, visited Ron Schollenberger’s Bioethics and Advanced Biology classes for a third year to share his research experiences and the bioethical insights acquired while researching one of the most important and potentially far-reaching biotechnologies discovered to date - the CRISPR-cas9 bacterial immunity/gene editing system.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday and Black History Month, Dalton's Office of Progressive and Inclusive Practice and the High School administration sponsored the visit of Dalton Alumna Peggy Trotter Dammond Preacely '60. During the most recent High School assembly, Ms. Preacely offered an autobiographical narrative highlighting her recruitment to Dalton as an African American student in the late 1940s and her emergence as a Civil Rights Activist.
Dalton's engineering and comp sci alums are strutting their coding stuff to provide leadership beyond Dalton's walls and onto college campuses, literally across the country. Recent alums Andrew Milich '16 and Emily Cohen '16 organized Stanford's 2017 Treehacks hackathon, an event for wakeful coders which took place over 36 consecutive hours at Stanford University from February 17-19, 2017.
