Maryvale’s eighth grade students were honored this morning during the Eighth Grade Celebration and pronounced as official members of the Upper School. This beloved annual ceremony featured beautiful signing by individual eighth graders and the Invitational Choir as well as a class video produced by Taylor Pristoop ’21. Further, many of the girls were presented with department academic awards and Presidential Outstanding Achievement awards in recognition of their excellence in the classroom.
Congratulations to the entire Class of 2021 for achieving another significant milestone during your time at Maryvale. Congratulations also to Reese Guckert ’21, who was presented with the Abby Boehm Merit Award. This scholarship award is named in memory of Abigail M. Boehm ’98 and given to a eighth grader who maintains a humanitarian approach to the needs of others, works quietly behind the scenes, and demonstrates respect and kindness for peers, adults and the Maryvale community.
