Houses United
House systems like the one established by USM’s Upper School are designed to foster community and build school spirit. Upper School faculty members Marja Konkol and Jennifer Mielke recently spoke with four current and previous house captains—Audrey Engman ’20, Tripp Grebe ’19, Kara Skowlund ’19, and Darby Tevlin ’19—to get their opinions on the role of the house program at USM, and what is has meant to them.
