“The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for all to see by.” – Felix Adler
On Saturday, June 12, 2021, The Board of Trustees, Faculty, Administration, Parents, Guardians and Esteemed guests honored their heroes – The Class of 2021, in the annual Commencement and Awards Ceremonies.
After a most challenging year, these young people made history by surviving a global pandemic while coming out on top, to say bittersweet goodbyes on their final day at Knox. In the words of Head of School Virginia Riccardi in her commencement address we witnessed “bravery, conviction, courage, determination, integrity and honesty.”
Our community could not be more proud of these amazing graduates and wish them well on the next chapter of their lives. Semper ad Lucem!
