Class of 2017

Nobles Celebrates 151st Graduation

On June 2, Noble and Greenough School graduated 129 members of the Class of 2017.

The final morning assembly for the Class of 2017 included Mac Porter’s performance of “Castle on the Hill” by Ed Sheeran: "I think this song is pretty fitting," said Porter of the lyrics: “And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real/We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill." Other acts included Coldplay's “Paradise,” sung by Syra Mehdi, Grace Scott-Hiser, Sabrina Li Shen and Harry Sherman, as well as a reprise of Adele’s "Hometown Glory"—a song first memorably performed by Jonathan Herring as a Class IV student.

The morning celebrations continued with awards and the granting of diplomas to a class marked by the loss of beloved classmate Casey Dunne in 2015 and other challenges that saddened and strengthened them profoundly. Speakers shared thoughts on finding new paths, what a typical day at Nobles is like, striking out on one’s own and the importance of communicating with family.
