Page-Poole Grant Recipients Detail Service

Living the Taft Motto


Each year Taft awards students grant dollars to fund service-based summer travel. Those grants are generously funded by the Page and Poole families to memorialize their loved ones and to support students as they continue the important work done by Meg Page ’74 and Robert Poole ’50.


Grant recipients Emma Howie ’16, Julian White ’16, Tony Liu ’16, and Michael Wasserstein ’17 reflected on their service travel during a recent Morning Meeting. Emma traveled to Costa Rica to work at a native animal rescue/rehabilitation sanctuary; Julian completed a variety of service projects, ranging from construction to early childhood education, at sites throughout Panama; Tony Liu ’16 did field work for Heifer International 80 miles outside of Beijing; and Michael Wasserstein ’17 pedaled his way through Montana working on environmental and conservation projects with a group which relied solely on bicycles for transportation.
