Nobles Celebrates 149th Graduation
Seventeenth-century poet Anne Bradstreet declared, “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” Most New Englanders can relate and, on May 29—closing an academic year marked by a barrage of blizzards and a slow-coming spring—Noble and Greenough School graduated 124 members of the Class of 2015 under sunny skies. Very pleasant, indeed, Ms. Bradstreet.
The morning celebrations included awards and the granting of diplomas to a class characterized by its kindness, an extraordinary work ethic and resilience in response to loss and difficulty. Speakers shared thoughts on change, challenge and intentionality.
Student Life Council co-presidents Joelle Sherman and Dana Grey were among the first to address the audience. Sherman reflected on her friendship with Grey, peers and faculty members. “You’ve helped me start to figure out who I am and who I want to be. I cannot imagine a greater gift,” she said of her teachers.
