The Lausanne class of 2017 was celebrated in a big way this past weekend.
Our 92 seniors arrived on campus the next day, Sunday, May 28, as students and left as alumni.On Saturday, May 27, we welcomed family and friends of the Lausanne community to campus for Baccalaureate. Lausanne alumna Esperanza King '06 gave the Baccalaureate address to the soon-to-be graduates. After the ceremony, a reception was held in Tully Dining Hall to honor the graduating class.
After the class was dressed in their caps and gowns, they ceremoniously tapped the seal on the way to the ceremony. This tradition begins for each Lynx on their first day of Upper School as they tap the seal on the way in. On graduation day, it marks the end of their time as a Lausanne student. The Main Gym was filled to capacity with proud family, Lausanne faculty and staff as all members of the class were awarded a diploma. Lausanne's first African American valedictorian, Monique Smith '79, was welcomed back to campus and gave an inspiring Commencement address to the graduates during the ceremony. Seniors Paul Rozzi '17 and Nupur Singh '17 received the honor of co-valedictorians and Elizabeth Goetz '17 was named the salutatorian.
Congratulations to the Class of 2017!
