Class of 2021 Commencement Exercises

Despite a few sprinkles graduation was beautiful!
Despite a few sprinkles, McGehee's beautiful commencement ceremony took place on the front lawn of the Main Building on Thursday, May 20th. The freshmen, the Class of 2024, began the ceremony by carrying in the daisy chain they created for the seniors. Student Body President Anita Dongieux welcomed the audience. The graduates and their guests enjoyed remarks from May Moses, Dr. Kim Field-Marvin, Head of School, and Kathleen Viguerie Banta ’95, Director of Alumnae Affairs. A valedictory address was given by Lynn-Chi Nguyen and Class President Ella Charbonnet reflected on her class and their not-so-typical senior year. Diplomas were presented by Dr. Kim Field-Marvin, Board Chair Laura Shaw Shields ’72, and Upper School Head Jeanné Appelget. Preceding the traditional turning of the rings Tess Fouchi and Amanda Greenebaum surprised the crowd with a performance of "I Will Never Leave You". Congratulations to our fantastic seniors!
