Farewell Mrs. Farber
Nick Sebastiani ’16
Mrs. Farber enjoys her last days in office. As some may already know, Campus Ministry’s beloved Mrs. Peggy Farber will soon retire from her position in order to pursue new endeavors. Ms. Farber began at SI at the beginning of the 2000-2001 school year and now acts as the administrative assistant of Campus Ministry. She sees herself as an “office manager” of sorts, keeping the chapel calendar, making Kairos arrangements, and helping to keep track of immersion and junior retreats. When I asked Mrs. Farber about her most memorable experiences at SI, she replied with an interesting answer: using her ever-replenishing bowl of Jolly Ranchers to get to know the students and keep up with those who enjoy her company. As for specifics, when it comes for post-SI activities, Mrs. Farber plans to spend much more time with her family and grandchildren. She also desires to further explore her creativity with photography classes, and Ms. Farber imagines that she will continue to put her talent of knitting to good use. Wanting to stay healthy, Mrs. Farber plans on numerous hikes in the company of her walking group.
Though she will most certainly enjoy her time off, she also knows she will miss SI. In particular, she will miss her colleagues, with whom she interacts regularly. Mrs. Farber will also miss the students who keep her job fresh. According to her, meeting and getting to know new students has made the job a delight. Considering the numerous contributions of this generous lady, one can see that Mrs. Farber has a great devotion not only to Campus Ministry but also to the whole of the SI community. SI will not be the same without her presence.
