At Rowland Hall's fifth-, eighth-, and twelfth-grade graduation ceremonies this June, student speakers shared funny, reflective, and inspiring stories with those in attendance.
Seniors Abed Alsolaiman and Allie Zehner spoke together about the power of community, and how to "be the ancestor to your own future happiness." Eighth-grade students Samantha Lehman and Ella Houden performed poems about their Middle School experiences, and fellow eighth-grader Max Smart celebrated the spirit and tenacity of his peers. Several fifth-grade students thanked their teachers, family, and friends for helping to create a supportive and engaging learning environment in the Lower School.
We congratulate all of our graduates. You can read the full text of the student speeches here, and watch our Upper School graduation in the below video.
