Matt Bracken
Founder and President of the Wild and Free Foundation

In 2011, Matt Bracken took a leave from the African safari industry and become the first American to graduate from Protrack Anti-Poaching Ranger Training in Hoedspruit, South Africa, specializing in protecting the world's last wild animals from poachers. The Wild and Free Foundation was conceived when he saw a cheetah who was protected from poachers but pacing in search of his own territory. The mission of Wild and Free Foundation is to protect and support wildlife and habitat. According to Bracken "Nature must exist wild and free to thrive. Humans are predators, let us act like predators, and eat when necessary, rather than kill and destroy for greed, pleasure, status, and land in a man-made material world."  Check out the video "We Are Rhino" for a look at Bracken's work and a preview of the September 25th program:

Poetry Out Loud

Each year all Kents Hill students compete in a school wide Poetry Out Loud competition. Poetry Out Loud is a national poetry recitation contest which is sponsored by The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation to encourage students to learn about poetry through memorization and recitation along with helping students with public speaking skills and building self-confidence. A representative from each Kents Hill English class goes to the school semifinals where four students are picked to compete in the school finals which are held during Morning Meeting. The winner of the school final goes on to represent Kents Hill at the northern Maine state competition and hopefully move on to the state and national competitions.
