Honoring Cardigan Seniors at 2021 Baccalaureate

Cardigan's 2021 Baccalaureate and Ninth-Grade Recognition Assembly
 

The Baccalaureate and Ninth-Grade Recognition Assembly presented seniors awards for leadership in a number of areas, including dorm citizenship, sportsmanship, the arts, writing, and specific academic subjects. Director of Academics Jamie Welsh welcomed online viewers and the small audience in attendance at the event, stating that, “This is an exceptional graduating class. They have overcome innumerable challenges and demonstrated our values time and time again.”

Director of Secondary School Counseling Kris Langetieg P’24 gave the main address and set the tone for the afternoon. As a member of the staff––coach, adviser, and dorm parent––at Cardigan for the past nine years, Mr. Langetieg looked back upon this unique and proud chapter in our School’s history and proposed that special attention must be paid to this impressive graduating class. “You've been honest in your shortcomings but willing to work upon them,” said Mr. Langetieg, “facing challenges willingly and taking more time to celebrate each other than yourselves. Despite complications, boundaries, precautions, and a world beyond our campus borders that has only been consistent in its inconsistencies and uncertainties for more than a year, you’ve eschewed excuses to make yourselves better, and more importantly, to make this place better. This is why we as a community are in awe of you boys.”

The ceremony then focused on awards, acknowledging outstanding contributions to the Cardigan community from all areas of our School, including the long-term service of two of our staff members; the dedication of our yearbook was also made public during this ceremony as well. Congratulations to all of our seniors for the hard work they have demonstrated in all of their years at Cardigan!
