Creator of the popular comic series Big Nate, Peirce has also drawn eight Big Nate books. “These hybrids of text and pictures held down a top ten slot on the New York Times bestseller list for over 140 weeks,” Portland Monthly reported. * In March Scott Hunter ’87 stepped down from coaching boys varsity soccer at Caribou (Maine) High School, a position he’d held since 2011.
