In his first year as a dorm head, Chris Carpenter ’96 received the Houston Patterson Award April 28 in a chapel presentation.
A former day student at McCallie, Mr.
Carpenter has embraced the boarding lifestyle, living on campus for the past five years and has worked in Maclellan and Burns Halls. He was selected as dorm head of Founders Hall prior to this school year.
The award is named for longtime teacher and dean of boarding students Houston Patterson ’43. It has been presented annually since 1995 to a member of the boarding faculty who has shown the same devoted care for his dorm students that Mr. Patterson did. The recipient is determined by a vote of all boarding students.
Mr. Carpenter supported the traditions of dorm life but also created new initiatives such as: awarding prizes as an incentive for clean rooms, encouraging students to praise each other at dorm meetings, fresh fruit Fridays and Krystal hamburger eating contests.
