On the Road with Ellis Turner

Ellis Turner, Associate Head of School, recently hit the road for Sidwell Friends! Ellis headed west from Washington, DC on a mission to connect with alumni across the country and meet Head of School Bryan Garman in San Francisco and LA for the Room 212 Tour. Ellis is back on campus after 35 days, almost 7500 miles on his odometer, and at least 50 hours listening to Outlaw Country and the Grateful Dead channels on XM Radio. Ellis met with dozens of alumni in 14 cities across the USA, exploring places of historical interest and quirky pop culture sites, from Daniel Boone’s Grave to Frank Zappa’s boyhood home.

Check out some of Ellis’s great photographs from the road below, and stay tuned for an account from Ellis in the fall with stories from his travels and reunions with so many Sidwell Friends grads.
