Roger Crandall, Chairman, President and CEO of MassMutual, visits AHS
Roger Crandall, Chairman, President, and CEO of MassMutual, generously spent part of his day visiting with our middle school students. It was a special treat to have this alumni parent
back at Academy Hill. Mr. Crandall has supported our Crandall Scholar program for a number of years, and we remain grateful for the opportunity he has provided to several of our students and alumni. Mr. Crandall engaged with each student individually throughout his presentation, and offered all souvenirs as remembrances of the visit.
