Celebrating Cardigan’s 2020-21 Underclassmen

Cardigan's Underclassmen Recognition Assembly
 

The highlight of the last day of the 2020-21 school year was Cardigan’s annual Underclassmen Recognition Assembly. Held under the same tent that would be used for Cardigan’s 75th Commencement a few days later, the assembly recognized the achievements of our sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students as students, as athletes, and as campus citizens.

Dean of Academics Jamie Welsh opened the assembly, remarking that the 2021 academic year was a year unlike any other. “We have been tested time and again to overcome unforeseen obstacles, to creatively handle new circumstances, and retain essential elements of the Cardigan experience,” Mr. Welsh said. “To close this year together is a testament to this community’s resolve…and today we will celebrate your accomplishments.”

Mr. Welsh then invited School Leader-Elect Preston Merrick ’22 to the podium. “We’ve made it,” said Preston. “We can all leave with our heads held high knowing that we have persevered through one of the most difficult times in modern history.” Preston’s remarks urged the underclassmen to remember the lessons and positive moments from this unusual school year and thanked the faculty for their flexibility, understanding, and support.

Head of School Christopher D. Day P’12,’13 congratulated all of the students on a “truly remarkable year, whether you were here with us on The Point or working remotely on the other side of the world.” Mr. Day continued, “It wasn’t always the adults in the community who were leading the way; we needed – and received—crucial buy-in from every member of the community…You’ve all lived, struggled and thrived through one of the most challenging years anyone can remember. That, gentlemen, is something that will be inside of you forever, and will make you stronger.”

Congratulations to our students for another year of hard work!
