Mr. Ross (as he is known at SMS) gets free run of the campus, making sure it looks its best at all times of the year. He jokes that because he often works by himself, he’s usually seen talking to the birds. He prefers, of course, interacting with the staff and students, and it makes his day whenever our students come up to him and ask about what he’s doing. He’s very creative and good-natured, and is constantly trying new ways to improve the campus, working from an artistic perspective. He even likes weeding, for its zen-like properties, and is learning to love co-existing with the deer and other wildlife that foray onto the campus.
