Culver Academies Head of Schools discuses wind farm proposition

November 28, 2011

Culver Academies, acknowledges Head of Schools John Buxton, has been noticably silent regarding one issue it seems is on nearly everyone's tongues: the proposed placement of a "wind farm" of some 60 wind turbines, each around 500 feet high, in the Fulton and Marshall County areas. Specifically, a number of the towers are likely to be visible from various points along Lake Maxinkuckee, a fact which has led various entities -- including the Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council and Culver's parks and recreations board -- to make formal statements against the project.

A Culver Thanksgiving past...

November 24, 2011

In honor of Thanksgiving day, here's an article published a few years ago in the Thanksgiving edition of the Culver Citizen...

Culver Academy, however, has a long and rich Thanksgiving tradition dating back to the early days of the school’s 113-year existence, according to Academies historian Bob Hartman.
