    Class Message Winner

    Each spring every senior is invited to prepare a message to deliver to classmates, faculty, friends and families at the graduation ceremony. All entries are reviewed anonymously, that is, authors’ names are not shown to the judges. This means that the entries are judged by their words alone - not by who wrote them. A committee of teachers review all entries and select the winner.

    This year, entries were submitted by:  Trip Apley, Hannah Bradburn, Tom Denys, Julien Faro, Forrest Flesher, Lauren Foyteck, Nick Freeman, Valerie Khaykin, Kahshiada Kidd, Ibrahim Kromah, Aiden Kutcher,

    Avery Lumeng, Trevor Minor, Michael Parrott, We thank all of these authors for thinking deeply about their school and their futures.  This year, the Class Message winner is:  Michael Parrott.  Congratulations Michael!
