Recognition Assembly Celebrates Successes of 2023-2024 School Year

Recognition Assembly

“If we were to celebrate all our achievements of this school year, we would be here an entire day because we have grown so much,” shared School Leader-Elect Tigger Tanglertsumphun ’25 at the opening of this year’s Recognition Assembly.

The 2023-2024 school year truly was a great year with many successes and much to celebrate. Some successes were witnessed by the whole community and celebrated with a ringing of the Clark-Morgan bell; others were more personal and acknowledged with a pat on the back or a subtle nod of the head. And sometimes, to outsiders, our achievement looked more like failures with lessons hard learned and earned. But together the collective successes of the community have made us all stronger and for that we can be grateful.

“For all that we have learned, I want to thank you, staff, faculty, and lastly students,” continued Tigger. “Thank you for making this year memorable. All of us have worked diligently in sports and persisted through our academic endeavors…We have faced some difficulties through the school year, and it is how we jump back that matters. The challenges we have faced this year have made us stronger; never forget them.”
