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."
Congratulations to the Class of 2019. One of the key benefits of a King education is the many different opportunities we offer students to discover and pursue their passions as they grow as learners and people. Thanks to the tireless guidance and support of their teachers, college counselors, and families, the successes they created for themselves in the classroom, on the field, and on the stage helped them earn acceptances to the best schools in the country and abroad.
Congratulations to the new King inductees. These students have chosen rigorous academic programs and have met the requirements of all those courses of study and have often exceeded them. It is their sustained excellence over the entire course of their high school careers that marks them as worthy of consideration, although that is not to say that they have not grown emotionally and intellectually during the journey.
