Class Secretary Information

Welcome to the new Andover Class Secretaries Webpage! We as class secretaries are folks who dedicate ourselves to fostering community among our peers. We thought it was time to extend that same sensibility to our own community of Andover/Abbot Class Secretaries. We hope that this webpage can become a critical resource to enhance the work we do collecting stories and connecting our classmates to the academy and alumni community. We also hope that it will grow to be a place that we can all visit to share stories and strategies among ourselves, check in on what's happening in the broader alumni community beyond our class, and spotlight the accomplishments of our fellow class secretaries.

You will find a roster of all current class secretaries here along with their e-mail, a listing for the current Class Secretaries Committee & Co-Chairs, contact information for Laura MacHugh, Class Notes coordinator, guidelines for writing and submitting class notes, and a listing of current alumni community projects and events to share with your classmates.

Three Great Reasons to Visit the Class Secretaries Webpage Regularly

  • It's a great way to keep an ear to the rail and search for Academy and Alumni Association projects/events that might be of interest to your classmates.
  • It's a great resource for contact information, stylistic guidelines, and class secretary expectations.
  • It's a great way to stay in tune and harmonize with your peers in the vibrant class secretaries community.

We encourage everyone to reach out to their classmates and publicize the new “Out of the Blue” project, a way to share your personal and unique Andover experiences.

Featured Secretaries

CourtneyCourtney King

Courtney grew up in Toronto, Canada, then joined the rarified ranks of the West Coast (Los Angeles) before starting at Andover in 2007. At Andover, she was involved in Model UN and the Phillipian, and stage managed two plays for the theatre department alongside Kevin Heelan. Her favourite classes were Latin: Vergil, Middle Eastern Studies, and Renaissance Poetry. She graduated in the Class of 2010. Courtney attended the University of Southern California (USC) and Wesleyan University, before settling in at Columbia University in the School of General Studies, where she's now finishing her degree. She's backpacked through Southeast Asia, researched and taught English in India, and attended several high-level Women's Issues conferences. She loves hiking and reading and wearing her Andover knit headband all around New York City, where it never fails to stop fellow alums on the train. Most of all, she loves being the secretary of 2010 and getting to keep in touch with some of the most amazing people she's ever met all year long!

William P. Seeley, Co-Chair of Class Secretaries Committee

Bill hails originally from Southport, Connecticut. He currently lives in Maine with his wife Christine and two children, Parker and Raines and teaches in the Philosophy Department at Bates College.

When Bill originally left Andover he headed south to New York City to see the sights and attend Columbia University. Twenty-two years later he left New York to pursue a career in philosophy. In the intervening years he played in a number of club and bar bands, opened for Meatloaf, and worked as a sculptor, a steel-and-aluminum fabricator, a writer's assistant (to the author of Completely MAD: A History of the Comic Book and Magazine), and briefly, in the mid-90s, as a software designer for a start-up developing interactive textbooks.

Bill holds a B.A. in philosophy and an M.F.A. in sculpture from Columbia, and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He was awared the Louis Sudler Prize in the Arts for his sculpture as an undergraduate at Columbia. After finishing his M.F.A. he spent 3 years working in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn as Head Assistant to the sculptor Ursula Von Rydingsvard. Prior to moving to Bates College Bill taught in the College Seminar Program at Yale University and in the Philosophy and Psychology Departments at Franklin & Marshall College.

Bill's welded steel mobiles and constructions have been exhibited in New York City and at a number of colleges and universities, including a solo exhibition of outdoor works in Ezra Stiles College at Yale University. His research in philosophy lies at the intersection of cognitive science, embodied cognition, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of art. He is currently working on a book titled, Seeking Salience / Engaging Art: Neuroscience and Philosophy of the Arts.

In his spare time Bill is an avid downhill skier, snowshoer, hiker, and wilderness paddle. He has travelled many of the rivers that empty into James and Hudson Bay from Ontario, Quebec and Nunavik, Canada, including 8 trips to Hudson bay via cedar-canvas canoe.


Thomas Cochran, Class of 1890, funded the construction of many PA landmarks, including Commons, Cochran Chapel, and George Washington Hall.
