It is my pleasure to announce that Spencer Ash ('10) has been appointed as Executive Officer of the Tabor Boy for the 2009-2010 school year. Spencer succeeds Wilder Hastings ('09) in this important and unique student leadership position and joins a long and prestigious line of Tabor Boy XOs.
Spencer's duties as XO will begin next month when the Tabor Boy heads to Maine for the Orientation at Sea Program. This will be Spencer's second summer working aboard the vessel. His responsibilities this summer will include directing the student crew as well as working with and supervising more than 70 new Tabor students during 7 one-week cruises out of Camden.
This will be the new students' first participation in a Tabor Program. I know Spencer and the other crewmembers will make these students feel welcome and do their best to give them a positive and fun experience sailing the Maine coast. The students will also learn about the history and past traditions of the Tabor Boy during their six days onboard.
Please congratulate Spencer on this achievement and wish him the best for his upcoming year as Executive Officer of the Tabor Boy!
