Five prestigious colleges honored Minnehaha Academy students with book awards, presented at the end of the school year.
Middle School French students have acquitted themselves very well again this year on Le Grand Concours (the National French contest).
Oh the places they'll go!
The class of 2019 wasn't afraid of a little hard work, as evidenced by this year's Senior Honors Night. We're confident that each of these awards demonstrates much more than an Upper School achievement...the character and diligence that lead to the award is the foundation needed for future success. Congrats, Seniors!
Baccalaureate Speech 2019
Good evening everyone, my name is Matt Doty. When Dr. Crafton invited me to speak at this ceremony I was admittedly apprehensive at first. I didn’t know that I fully understood the prompt, nor did I know if I had anything to say.
I quickly realized that the issue wasn’t whether or not I would have something to say—I rarely run into that problem—but whether or not I could string together words with enough freshness and depth to strike a chord with a group of high school students. This task seemed far more difficult, and the thought of it rattled around in my head for a few days.
