Congratulations to the Glen Urquhart School Class of 2018!

The Glen Urquhart School graduates of the Class of 2018 were awarded their diplomas on June 13 with a commencement ceremony filled with bagpipe playing, processionals, hand-crafted floral “tussie mussies,” choral arrangements, and personal introductions of each graduating student shared by Head of School David Liebmann. GUS Class of 2010 alumni, Hannah Becker and Jacob Fucci, delivered addresses encouraging their younger peers to “be uncomfortable and seek opportunities for growth,” and remember “you are academically and emotionally well-prepared.” These were the thirty-sixth graduation exercises for the school, now celebrating its 40th year on the North Shore.

The night before graduation, eighth graders shared their personal "This I Believe" reflective narratives with an audience of family and faculty at the annual “Evening With the Graduates” ceremony. Musical selections and the “Passing of the Tartan” welcomed 7th graders to their new grade.

Congratulations to the twenty-seven GUS graduates who will be attending the following secondary schools in the fall: Beverly High School, Boston University Academy, Brooks School, Dana Hall School, Gloucester High School, The Governor's Academy, Hamilton Wenham Regional High School, Kimball Union Academy, Manchester Essex Regional High School, Phillips Academy Andover, Pingree School, Pingry School, St. John's Prep, Shore Country Day School, Waring School, Waynflete School. As the school song inspires, “Trust and go forward out into the world!”
