Among the many events and opportunities that make up the Tilton experience, there are those select memories that students take with them when they leave the Hill. For many, one of these memories is the annual Larry Bartell Tubing Night. This January, Rams adventured to nearby Pats Peak Ski Area to spend an evening under the lights tubing down snowy slopes or watching from the warm lodge, hot cocoa in hand.
The event is affectionately named for Larry Bartell ’76, a former trustee who passionately supported the creation of fun
opportunities for Tilton students. Bartell was long known for his kindness, humor, and generosity at Tilton. He spent more
than a decade on the Board working to enhance the student experience and facilitate memory-making for generations
His legacy lives on through the creation of a “Fun Fund” — supported by current and former trustees — that provides funds for Tubing Night and other activities throughout the school year.
