  • Alumnus of the Year Award: Tim Greenwood '69

    The Chestnut Hill Academy Alumnus of the Year award recognizes an alumnus for outstanding service to the Alumni Association or to Springside Chestnut Hill Academy.

    As one member of the Alumni Awards Committee said during the deliberations, “Hands down, this award should go to Tim Greenwood.  We have been very lucky to have him as a dedicated alumnus, parent, grandparent and committed volunteer. Tim has supported the development office through and through, from introducing then incoming Head of School Steve Druggan to our community, serving on the Alumni Association Board,  to chairing his 50th Reunion last May! Tim’s commitment has never wavered and we have been fortunate to have him share his time and acumen in helping SCH Academy strive for excellence.”

  • Young Alumnus of the Year Award: Brian Miglionico '04


    The Young Alumnus Award recognizes the achievements of an alumnus who has graduated within the past twenty years. This year’s Young Alumnus of the Year honoree is Brian Miglionico, a member of the CHA class of 2004. Brian was a lifer at CHA, a star student, and member of the baseball team. But perhaps most importantly Brian is LIGHT blue.

    After his time at CHA, Brian went on to study at Northeastern University. Brian, his lovely wife Nicole and their young son George now live in Boston.

    Brian recently left his role at Acceleron Pharma after 9 years to join in launching a microbiome biotech, Finch Therapeutics, with the founding team in 2016.  Since then, he has supported the growth of the company from 10 to 150 employees, through strategic partnerships and fundraising activities to drive a new class of therapies to patients. The microbiome field is in its infancy, however, it is gaining traction and focus from investors and large pharma alike. They (and many others) have been working to blaze a path in an otherwise uncharted therapeutic landscape and see broad application to modulate many unmet disease indications through the microbiome and gut bacteria!

  • Francis P. Steel '77 Award: Clark Groome '60

    Written and presented by Frank P. Steel, Jr. '77

    Wow what a pleasure it is to be back here…it feels so good to be back in this room where so many of the good parts of my life have happened.  It is especially nice to be here to present this award to Clark Groome. It was such an honor for me to have it named for me, and it is a pure joy to be able to get back here and present it to others who have served the school so well and so extensively…and Clark has certainly done that!  I have known Clark for over 40 years, and he has been part of both my CHA, my extended family and my personal life throughout that time.

    The funny thing about people who get such honors as service awards, is that very few of them actually set out to win an award.  Rather, they set out to do what they love, to make a difference, to be in a place that feels like home, with people they care about, and let the journey unfold in front of them.  As I think back on Clark, and his lifelong service to CHA, I see that exact process having happened.
