Cardigan Mountain School A boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 9

Celebrating the Achievements of Cardigan’s Underclassmen

Recognition Assembly

Our annual Underclassmen Recognition Assembly took place several days after Cardigan’s 73rd Commencement Ceremony. The assembly recognized the achievements of our sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and within their dorms.

School Leader-Elect Bryce Terry ’20 opened the assembly and reflected on the many remarkable experiences of the 2018-2019 academic year. It was an exciting year filled with opportunities inside and outside of the classroom and on and off campus. “I think I speak on behalf of my Cardigan brothers to say I truly would not want to be in any different community with anyone else by my side,” said Bryce. “We, as underclassman, have the opportunity and responsibility to make next year the best year ever. We will build upon our Cardigan experience and continue to help the other fella, be our best, and live by the core values. In one year from today, let’s stand on this stage together knowing that we left Cardigan better than we found it.”

Head of School Christopher D. Day P’12,’13 congratulated our students on a remarkable year and spoke of the special formula that makes up a Cardigan education: “We want you to be kind and respectful. We want you to develop empathy—experiencing the thoughts, feelings, or attitudes of another, ...and we want you—no, we expect you, to push yourselves in the face of a changing world...and by doing so, pushing Cardigan forward...sometimes in the face of resistance.”

Congratulations to our students for another year of hard work!
