The Rev. Frank A Edmands II writes: “It has been over a half century since my graduation from Wilbraham Academy! I am well, now a retired Episcopal priest living in Columbus, Ohio, with my dream woman from Northern California, the Rev. Lynn Carter-Edmands. We just celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. We have enjoyed our journey from coast to coast practicing our vocations and now settled in the heartland. Suggested springtime good reading: "Defending Alice," a recent novel of love and race in the roaring ’20s written by my classmate Richard Stratton. In the late ’90s, Lynn and I served as Chaplains, Teachers, Coaches and Dorm Parents at Trinity Pawling School, New York, complete with 265 teenaged boys – a blessed and fulfilling experience. So, I deeply appreciate and understand the dedicated work that your staff, teachers and coaches are offering to the academy (24/7).”
