Charlotte Samuels visits Ridge!

Ridge School was thrilled to welcome Charlotte Samuels as the guest of honor at our Oct. 10 ROC assembly. Charlotte is an alumna of Ridge and at the age of 16 recently became the youngest person to complete the Triple Crown of open water swimming. áWe found out that her inspiration for open water swimming began in 2nd grade when Mrs. Best, retired librarian, read her class the story of Gertrude Ederle. Ms. Eng, our current librarian, then read the same story to all classes in preparation for Charlotte's visit. Charlotte shared photos and stories of all three legs of her swims and the students were fascinated. Many even sought her autograph after school! Congratulations, Charlotte- we're so proud of you!
