Just like that, the Class of 2021 is on its way to the next chapter.
On Thursday, May 27, after much preparation, and under strict adherence to newly relaxed guidelines, the senior class was able to hold an in-person graduation ceremony on Sierra Canyon's Athletic Fields. The grounds were transformed and families came together to celebrate our students' achievement under a clear sky and a spectacular jumbotron, enabling the entire class to celebrate together no matter what country they have been attending classes from.
The ceremony looked much more familiar this year, and we even caught a glimpse of some pretty big smiles under everyone's masks.
Congratulations to the 2021 Graduation Award recipients:
International Excellence Award: Kevin Li Founder's Award: Tamia Murphy and DJ Harvey Renaissance Award: Hannah Gansert Trustees Prize: Rayan Ansari Head of School Award: Aaron Mertzel and David Rotblatt
Valedictorian: Rayan Ansari Salutatorian: Abdullah Rafique
Congratulations to the ENTIRE Class of 2021! It's been a year we will never forget!
