Our chances of holding US Commencement outdoors this very wet spring, in the US quad as is our custom, were maybe . . . 50-50. We’ve had two hailstorms in the last week and many showers.
But the skies cleared on Friday morning as 47 seniors in the Class of 2019 and their many friends, family, and teachers gathered to put an exclamation mark on the seniors’ time at Prep. Raul Midón ’84 graciously accepted the seniors’ invitation to serve as Commencement Speaker—and across 20 minutes, the 500+ folks in attendance were transported, first by his story and then by his rendition of his song, “State of Mind.”
And to the graduates of the Class of 2019: well done. As a class, you modeled for younger students how to keep school fun by committing fully to your passions. Fare well . . . and keep us posted.
Happy summer to all!
