It was a perfect evening to celebrate excellence, friendship, and 96 members of the Class of 2019 as the King community gathered under blue skies and a massive white tent. This year's Commencement Exercises took place on Friday, May 31, and included remarks from Head of School Dr. Karen Eshoo, and three Valedictorians: Grethe Andersen, Mallory Ehlers, and Annie Michalski. The Commencement Address was delivered by Nedgine Paul Deroly '04 and the Senior Speaker was Dean Pigott.
At King, excellence occurs in a community context. On Prize Day, we called out individuals' names as embodiments of excellence, but the fact is that no one can achieve anything alone. "Teachers, classmates' comments or debates in class or in study groups or teams, great assignments, careful coaching - this is what supports excellence."
