Announcing Project “Thank You, Headmaster Smith!”


There is no doubt that Coe-Brown’s Headmaster Smith has impacted the lives of thousands and he remains tremendously influential in his role at the Academy to this very day!

We are starting this project, “Thank You, Headmaster Smith!” to try to begin to collect photographs and messages to stand in testament to the powerful effect he has had on the lives of students, staff members, alumni, community members, friends, and family.

Not to worry – this is NOT an announcement of a retirement, but rather the start of a long-term collection of testimonials to the impact of this legendary educator.

We ask that anyone who would like to be a part of this to email your contribution to We are hoping for photos (please identify anyone in the photo), messages of thanks or appreciation, and/or a story you would like to share about the influence of Headmaster Smith on you. (You may also use the postal mail and send to Coe-Brown Northwood Academy, ATTN: C. Lasky, 907 First NH Turnpike, Northwood, NH 03261.)

In addition, please share this message and pass it along to anyone you know who should be included in this project. We hope to hear from all of you near and far, young and not-as-young, and we know it will mean a great deal to Headmaster Smith when the project is concluded!

Thank you for your assistance in creating a collection to reflect CBNA’s beloved Headmaster David S. Smith!
