Today is Junie Hockenbury’s 88th birthday. Steve Graham, our CFO, and I along with our Operations Team took him out to lunch. “Junie” has been a fixture here at GSB for his whole life. He began working at St. Bernard’s in 1945 as a farm hand, and never left. He can usually be seen around campus riding a lawnmower or tending to his horses. Hockenbury Hall was named in honor of Junie and his wife Lois in 2009. They are a special treasure in our school community and I am blessed to know them both.
Gill St. Bernard’s is a private, coeducational day school for students age three through grade 12, located in suburban New Jersey. Each of the three school divisions provides a vigorous, meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum, and all students benefit from the environmental learning opportunities that exist on our 208-acre campus.
