hil Kantaros, history department faculty member of 15 years, will not be returning next year and will be missed by faculty and students alike. He will be moving to Raleigh, North Carolina to develop a government program at Ravenscroft School. Kantaros has decided he is ready to work at a day school again, but he will miss the campus and the closeness of the community that a boarding school has. “I am looking forward to moving to an exciting, booming city… but I don’t think I will ever find a better place for my puppies,” said Kantaros.
One of his fondest memories at Mercersburg is eating Sunday night dinners with his advisees and other students. Michaela Wotorson ‘18, a student enrolled in the Quinn-Ferguson Honors Seminar taught by Kantaros, said, “Mr. Kantaros is absolutely hilarious and so family-oriented…he has changed my life and my outlook on politics and social issues… I wish him all the best.”
At Baccalaureate on Friday, May 26, Kantaros will be the featured speaker of the event in the Chapel.
