  • Dorothy Porter Service Award

    The Dorothy Porter Service Award was established in honor of our beloved long- time teacher who was a part of St. Martin’s from its beginning. Even after her retirement in 1988, Mrs. Porter was actively involved in the school. She exemplified grace, commitment, historical love for the school and an enduring spirit that is admired by everyone who is a part of St. Martin’s. With the Dorothy Porter Service Award, we honor the late Mrs. Porter and her commitment to St. Martin’s. The award’s recipient must be an exemplary St. Martin’s citizen who has consistently served the school with time, talent and treasures and who represents the motto, philosophy and mission of St. Martin’s – faith, scholarship, service. 

    St. Martin's Episcopal School congratlates Warren Lind, the recipient of the 2016 Dorothy Porter Service Award.
     
    This year's recipient is certainly deserving of the honor, as he has long served St. Martin's. Mr. Lind is best known as a dedicated Middle School science teacher. He began his time at St. Martin's in 1979 and has been working for the betterment of his students and the school ever since. Many students and alumni have distinct memories of his class projects, such as the egg drop, Pringles mailer, and frog dissections. Additionally he has served as Chair of the Science Department. He is a dedicated educator who, throughout the years, has paired his experience with the most up-to-date best practices to enhance the classroom experience for his students.
     
    During his tenure he has been a fixture both inside and outside the classroom.  As head 8th grade advisor, he organized and spearheaded the Washington D.C. trip for over 25 years. Later, he co-initiated the 7th grade trip to Sea Camp as a way to bring the biology curriculum to life.  For many years he was involved in summer programs at St. Martin's, even serving as director. Over the course of numerous summers he has introduced many children to rocketry, chemistry, and robotics.  Additionally, he has encouraged students' love of science through the Science Olympiad program. His Science Olympiad teams routinely place in competitions; this school year, the Upper School team finished second in the state. He has earned the award of Outstanding Coach from Science Olympiad for the past three years.
     
    Mr. Lind also has played a role in athletics at St. Martin's. He has coached at the Middle and Upper School level in both swimming and boys basketball.  He took over the cross country program in 2010 and has led them to great success.  Most recently, in 2015 he led our boys cross country team to a state championship, and the girls cross country team to finish second in the state.  He works with many of those same athletes as Indoor Track Coach during the winter season and Track Coach in the spring.
     
    In a less official capacity, he has served honorably as the Middle School Dodgeball Commissioner.  Any student who has come through StM Middle School recently will have memories of the fierce competition of the dodgeball league managed by Commissioner Lind. Others may remember his Science Fiction Movie Club or Rocketry Club. The various ways he adds to the life of the school are innumerable. 
     
    This short summary of his time at St. Martin's does not do justice to the tremendous impact that Warren Lind has had on the school over the years.

  • Martin de Tours Award

    The Martin de Tours Award is named for the patron saint of our school. He is best known for his ability to find God in the simple joys of life. There is a well know story in which Martin met a shivering beggar at the gates of the city of Amiens in Gaul. Moved with compassion, he divided his coat into two parts and gave one to the poor man. Martin de Tours exemplified the aspect of service that we value so highly at St. Martin’s Episcopal School.

    This award is given annually to an exemplary citizen who has consistently served his/her community and has demonstrated a commitment to the highest standards in his/her chosen field of endeavor.
