Commencement - Class of 2013
Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2013 took place on Friday, May 31st, in the Upper School Quad before close to five hundred family members, friends, faculty, alumni, and trustees. The forty-one graduates were celebrated for their hard work and ready engagement in the life of Prep.
According to class speaker Anya Markowitz, her classmates from the Wild and Free Class of One Three might be just what the world needs. "Spoiler Alert," quipped Anya in response to Time magazine's "me, me, me" label for her generation. "We are more than the sum of our selfies."
Delivering the commencement address was Anna Gunn '86, best known as Skyler White in the hit series Breaking Bad. Seniors heard Anna's reflections on her enduring passion for acting, first ignited on the stage in Prep's Driscoll Auditorium. "You already are the dream you're pursuing, the future you envision," Anna assured them. "Right here. Right now."
Congratulations to our graduates and best wishes for success as you pursue the next stage of your education and life journey!
