The 83 members of Maryvale’s Class of 2021 celebrated a wonderful school tradition on Jan. 9 in which they received their class pins. Family members and friends of the sophomores as well as students and faculty gathered in McCarthy Theater for a special ceremony to watch the girls accept their “2021” pins and place them on the blazers of their Maryvale sisters. The ceremony featured a beautiful performance of the class song, “Come Alive,” by sophomore singers and musicians as well as a Scripture reading and class video, which was created by the class officers. Additionally, Blair Boehm Dicriscio ’01, Mathematics department chair and class dean, explained the symbolism and importance of the class pin, a representation of the strength of the Maryvale sisterhood and the unbreakable bonds that the girls develop every day. Students also shared remarks about their gratitude to their teachers, families and fellow classmates for their continuous support during their days both in and out of the halls of Maryvale. This joyous occasion commemorates the sophomores’ journey through the Upper School and the exciting path that will continue to unfold before them.
