A Boston Globe video features Shihan Wijeyeratne '11 as "the first runner to show up for the Boston Marathon." AsShihan's former coach Geoff Owers said after watching the video: "There isn't a nicer guy out there. He's so generous and he frequently comes back (to Webb) and runs with Mr.Caldwelland I just for fun. I knew when he was here at Webb that he was barely cracking his potential - the track was too short for him, I think he was made for the long haul." We're all proud of you, Shihan! Keep up the great work.
Mason Lin '13, a senior at Swarthmore College, also ran the Boston Marathon. Congratulations to both for a job well done!
Sponsored by the Robert ’53 and MeiLi Hefner Foundation and offered here at Webb to two current students, The Hefner Initiative aims to foster a close and positive relationship between the people of China and the US.
