College Counseling

The Class of 2020 was cruising towards the finish line early last spring when everything suddenly stopped.

Sports seasons were lost, as were traditional senior rituals like prom, Senior Transition Day, and Senior Release Day.  Yet, as was their custom, the Class of 2020 handled these challenges with a pragmatism and grace that was admirable!

Graduation itself, held much later than usual and looking quite different, took on a greater significance.  There was pride, yes—pride felt by everyone: the graduates themselves, their beaming (behind masks!) families, and the faculty and staff. But there was also a sense of gratitude and hope.  We were all grateful to be together again, celebrating a group of students who had to shoulder the novel burden of a truncated senior year.  And we were all hopeful that the glimpse of “normalcy” that the ceremony gave us might be more commonly experienced soon.  Certainly, we know that this group is well-equipped to handle the vagaries of college and life with resilience and style!

And speaking of college, the 47 members of the Class of 2020 will attend 31 different colleges and universities in 16 states.  They earned over $2 million in merit scholarships.  Six of them will play NCAA varsity athletics, and four of them were recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. 

They are a talented group—caring, curious, and bright.

And, forged in a crucible of adversity, made stronger.

We couldn’t be prouder of them!
