Meet Sean Cusack - Class of 2003

High School: Delbarton School College / University: The College of William & Mary Current Role: Television Editor Fondest AOLP Memory: An eighth grade class of only thirteen students! The Scholastic Book Fair, the OLP Country Fair (apparently, I enjoy fairs more than I thought), and an especially outstanding fifth grade teacher who helped instill in me a sense of integrity balanced with humor which I like to think I carry with me to this day. It would be more accurate and honest to say my fondest memory of AOLP is the sense of peace, safety, and quiet happiness that comes with almost any memory of the school.

Meet Jimmy Johnston III - Class of 1993
