Newtown Square — The Episcopal Academy graduated 132 seniors at its 238th Commencement exercises on Thursday, June 8. The ceremony took place in the Class of 1944 Chapel on the Newtown Square campus.
Students were recognized for their accomplishments and congratulated by Dr. T.J. Locke, Head of School; Father Tim Gavin, Head Chaplain; The Rt. Reverend Daniel G.P. Gutierrez; Mr. Mike Letts, Head of Upper School; and Mrs. Alyson Kurz, Dean of Students. This year’s student speakers were valedictorian Margaret Lo and salutatorian Clare Collins.
“Over the years, we grew up together and became the people we are today by engaging with everything that Episcopal Academy has to offer,” reflected Lo.
“Sometimes we succeeded, and sometimes we failed, but most importantly, we did it together as one class, as one team, and I am so proud to have been a part of it.”
“The Class of 2023 has taken full advantage of the endless opportunities presented to us,” shared Collins. “We have been courageous in the face of adversity, we have found faith within this beautiful place, we have displayed sportsmanship in the midst of intense competitions, we have respected one another despite our differences.”
