I had a crazy good time as a Lawrence Academy visiting scholar. Thanks for having me.

We knew him when…
At the time Lin-Manuel Miranda was already the Tony and Grammy-winning composer-lyricist of Broadway’s In the Heights (which received four 2008 Tony Awards, with Miranda receiving a Tony Award for Best Score, and a nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical).
Soon, we’ll see our Mees Visiting Scholar in Disney’s sequel to 1964’s Mary Poppins.
In any case, as we begin preparations for this year’s Mees Scholar, we celebrate TBT (throwback Thursday) with a look back at Mr. Miranda’s visit to campus.
We’ll be announcing this year’s Mees Visiting Scholar soon!
