Class of ’48 Awards Continues a Lasting Legacy

Last Friday several seniors presented their Class of 1948 Award for Independent Study and Inquiry experiences to the entire Upper School. This is an annually funded learning opportunity which originated in 1998 as an ongoing gift to the school. Each year the students share what they learned during their immersive experience, which can sometimes take students far and wide!

Thank you to Francis Sargent ’48 who was able to join for the presentation! The seniors in the photo are (left to right):
