Class of 2011 Soars Off With Hugs All Around

 

UPPER SCHOOL -- The Upper School's Class of 2011 was sent off toward college on a spectacular, sun-drenched Friday morning.

Speeches by Headmaster Chris Schuck and Upper School history teacher Erin O'Grady as well as an inspirational aria by Choral Director Carrie Rose highlighted the day's program. The day's events were accompanied by an ensemble orchestra including Middle and Upper School students led by Joan Diener.

The newest alumni left the campus with proud parents and were to gather again later for a senior night party.
