The Honors Convocation ceremony recognizes the outstanding achievements of upper school students for their participation and excellence in the arts, athletics, service, and academics. The special occasion lauds the hard work and remarkable accomplishments of Wellington students and commends their vast contributions to our community.
Assistant Head of Upper School Dr. Rachel Althof opened the ceremony encouraging students to be contemplative. “Reflect on your own accomplishments and write your own narratives,” she said. “Draft a narrative that bolsters your motivation when the urge for complacency arises. Today, let’s celebrate the ideals for which we all strive as engaged members of our community. Consider the ways in which you embody those ideals and adjust as needed to strive to be even better.”
