Mark Fetting '72


Mark Fetting reports being “so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Porter...he was the best as teacher, Circus Director, T-men founder, contractor (he helped build the Auditorium), snow plow man with his jeep. I even think he and Cary Woodward were “Big League” football coaches when Will Baker and I attempted to be quarterbacks. Truly, Mr William H Porter, among the very best of Gilman.”

P.S. We did win the Circus in V & VI Form!


All is well with the Fetting-Smith clan...Georgie and I split time between Baltimore and Squam Lake NH. Conor & Kevin in LA, Carey & Steve and Margaret, Francie, and #3 girl (due 4/21) in Balto, Noel & Julie soon to be in London for 2-year assignment. I am in the midst of my first year as President of Gilman BOT and very much enjoying this "calling". Highlights have included the 50th Anniversary of African American Graduates and "A Path to Follow," a film on Reddy Finney which premiered at The Senator with over 700 people attending. Alan Kaufmann organizes lunch at The Diz with Cary Woodward and many classmates. The service for John Merrill was exceptional and "72 was one of top classes represented. Encourage all to visit!!
