Commencement 2018

Saturday, June 9, 2018

Solebury School welcomed the Class of 2018 into its alumni ranks under blue skies, surrounded by family, friends, faculty, staff, alumni, and students.

Senior speakers Lakumi Dias '18, Olivia Heffernan '18, and Ben Weinberg '18 spoke memorably about their experiences at Solebury School. “This community, this campus, this place, is truly remarkable,” said Ben. “It’s not just a place that allows you to be completely and genuinely yourself, it’s a place that actively helps you do so.”

School Counselor Julie Laing was chosen by the senior class to be the ceremony's Faculty Speaker. She shared the three things she wished someone had told her as a graduating senior. "Number 1: Be vulnerable. Stepping outside of your comfort zone is worth it and actually necessary," said Julie. "Number 2: Trust yourself. Trust that somewhere inside of you, you know who you are and that your instincts are worth listening to. And number 3: Embrace change. Know that change is inevitable and will always propel you forward. Which direction it propels you in is entirely up to you."

Congratulations to our 58 graduates! We will miss you as students, but look forward with excitement to the adults and alumni you will become.
