    Dr. Rinad Beidas '99

    The Distinguished Alumni Award was created by the Maret Alumni Council in 2011 to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of our former students.

    This award shares with the entire Maret community, especially our current students, the noteworthy achievements of our alumni. The Award Committee selects alumni who, true to our mission, are taking an active role in improving the world and are making significant contributions in the arts, sciences, medicine, business, government, academia, or service to humanity. Through this award, Maret seeks to recognize outstanding leadership and accomplishments at the local, national, or global level. Service, generosity, innovation, connectedness, and leadership are embodied by this year’s recipients, Dr. Phoebe Aron ’09 and Dr. Rinad Beidas ’99.

    Alumni Career Panels: March 8, 2024

    Each year, Maret alumni from far and wide volunteer as panelists for the annual Alumni Career Panels. Teacher-moderators interviewed alumni on their professional and personal journeys since their days as students. This year, over 300 upper school students chose from a selection of 23 different industry-focused topics from machines and robotics to creatives and philanthropy. Students were able to each attend two different panels. Thank you to our dedicated and generous core of alumni volunteers who come together and make this program such a tremendous success and opportunity for our students and community.

    Regional Events: January-March, 2024

    It was an exciting year for regional events as our new Head of School Dennis Bisgaard hit the road with other Maret faculty members to meet, greet, and experience the warm embrace of our Frogs Forever community near and far. Thank you to the many alums who joined us in Brooklyn, Boston, LA, and San Francisco for a fun and special time with friends and frog-mily old and new. We hope to see you 'pond the road when we visit a city near you!

    Spotlight on Alumni

    Alum demonstrates AI-powered bison to a group of students and faculty

    Talking Bison Comes to Cathedral Avenue

    Alex Peltier ’15 came to Maret in September to showcase the amazing AI-powered Bison that he has been working on. Alex and his business partner are in the process of finding new educational applications for AI. Students of all ages dropped by to interact with the bison and ask it questions. It accurately answered questions about first aid, the weather, geopolitics, the time of day...and even babysitting availability! Alex collected data about how members of the Maret community interacted with the bison and will be using that data to further develop the product before it goes to market.

    Submit Class Notes

    We love learning about what you've been up to, where you are, what's on your mind, or even just seeing your smiling face! Submissions are published in the Maret Magazine. See guidelines below:
    • Please limit entries to 400 words. Longer entries are fun and always interesting but get complicated for magazine design.
    • Photos are greatly appreciated and enjoyed by all. Please provide high resolution images. (Photos pulled from Facebook or other share sites are usually low resolution. Photos sent directly from your phone in the “original” or “large” sizes are high resolution.)
    • If you mention alumni friends, please include their class years.
    • We love news about babies! But we don't print news about them until they have been born. Send birth notices by April for the spring magazine and July for the fall magazine.
