Under a clear blue sky and surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature, we gathered one final time to celebrate, honor and say farewell to the Old Trail School Class of 2022 in June.
"To the members of the Class of 2022, you have now come to the end of your Old Trail School journey," said Head of School Sarah Johnston. "Some of you have been here since you were toddlers and some have come in these final middle school years. But all of you leave together as the Class of 2022 with a forever bond, filled with memories of good times and challenges, and everything in between.”
The outdoor ceremony included remarks by class speaker Griffin Vaughn, a stirring musical performance on the violin by Cailyn Hua '23, and the presentation of the following individual awards:
- High Academic Honors: Samir Taliwal
- Brian Giancarli Award: Simon Hassler, Izzy Wallerstein-King
- Volunteer Award: Julian Farian, Lydia Lockwood
- Headmaster's Spirit Award: Keegan LeVan, Will Harrington
- Alumni Award: Anika Soni, JP Pace
