The story about the math/statistics professors and the responses by the students makes me feel very enthusiastic about Williams, more than I have for a while (“Fun, Seriously,” January 2011). I have been telling my grandchildren to study statistics, as it is the key to understanding the real world.

As a Williamstown boy, I especially liked the article about Williams students teaching students at Mount Greylock Regional High School to write better (“Teach. Write. Learn.” January 2011). Cheers for all in the program. Our Williams class focused its 50th reunion gift on the hope that the College would produce even more fine teachers and also help area secondary schools.
