Annual Senior/Faculty Celebration!
This Tuesday evening, we held our annual Senior/Faculty dinner. This year's event was especially unique. The evening began with a guided tour of The Elizabeth Meeting House, where seniors were given the opportunity to sign a wall in what will become the new senior locker area. It was a wonderful moment, where the class of 2014—a group who lived through the construction, but won't be here to enjoy it on a daily basis—was able to leave their physical mark on the new space.
Following the tour, Seniors were shuttled over to George Washington University's Mount Vernon campus for a poetry reading and dinner. Each year at the Senior/Faculty dinner, different faculty read poems dedicated to each senior, written by their friends or family. This year's poems were moving, funny, full of inside jokes, and full of heart.
In all, the evening was a great moment in time for seniors and faculty to say "see you later" without distraction, and the memories created will be cherished.
