At Convocation, the official opening of school, Williston honors faculty who have committed 25 years of their lives to the school by presenting them with a Williston Chair.
During the ceremony on September 14, Head of School Robert W. Hill III presented a chair to Archivist Richard Teller ’70. “The Teller name is an indelible one at Williston as both of Mr. Rick Teller’s parents taught here,” said Hill. “In fact, Mr. Teller’s mother is the only person to have taught at the Northampton School for Girls, Williston Academy, and The Williston Northampton School—quite a feat.” The Teller Chorus is named in honor of our Mr. Teller’s father.
Rick Teller graduated in 1970 and headed to Vassar College. During his 25 years at Williston he has held a number of positions, from teaching social studies to directing student activities. His love of music and photography are twin passions he pursues to this day. “We know him best as a librarian and the school’s archivist, known for his annual Button Speeches and vast knowledge of all things Williston,” Hill continued.
Congratulations, Mr. Teller!
