Windsor, NH — When new students and faculty arrived at Windsor Mountain in southwest New Hampshire for orientation before the start of school, they were greeted by pouring rain.

Yet the damp seemed to have little effect on the students’ spirits, who, as history teacher and Windsor organizer Kira Shaikh remarked, “packed outstanding energy and some sunshine with them.” 
 
“I was blown away by their excitement for every activity, even if they were wet and chilly,” recalled Ms. Shaikh. “Their good spirits shined through during the campfire in the dining hall that night.”
