Congratulations, Class of 2017!

On a beautiful morning, May 27th, Class of 2017the 21 members of the Class of 2017 walked across the stage in Hart Park, one-by-one to receive their diplomas. In keeping with tradition, commencement began with the sound of bagpipes as the Golden Graduates, Board of Trustees, and faculty and staff processed in. Then a mariachi band led the graduating seniors to their seats. Students Stuart Boggess, Christina Baca, and Jean-Aime Lukuka spoke about their experiences at Menaul School, each one touching on the adversity they had to overcome and how their teachers and friends have helped them to succeed. This year’s Valedictorian was Cory Mason, and the Salutatorian was Stuart Boggess. Students were recognized for their accomplishments as they crossed the stage to accept their diplomas from Head of School, Lindsey Gilbert and acting Board of Trustees Chair, Corkey Baca. Upper School Director Troy Williamson presented the Class of 2017, and as the class song, “Life is a Highway” by Rascal Flatts played, 21 caps flew into the air in celebration. Congratulations, Menaul School Class of 2017!
