Prize Day 2017 a celebration of talent and accomplishment
All of our Prize Day coverage is on our website. Here's a link to Head of School Eric Peterson's Prize Day address, and a link to the chapel address by Marjorie Burdick, mother of 2017 graduates Hannah and Kendall Burdick, as well as Sarah '11, Colby '13 and Brinley '19.
2016 grads back on campus
A year after their own Prize Day and with lots of exciting news to share, about 40 members of the Class of 2016 returned to the Hilltop Sunday to celebrate their first-year reunion. The event, a cookout hosted by the Advancement Office, took place at Vermillion House, the home of Associate Head of School for External Affairs Bob Weston and Director of Special Events Ann Weston. Current faculty members helped work the grills. Nice to see you all!

The Newport Daily News published a terrific profile on Dr. Robin Wallace on the front page of yesterday's paper. The article was written by reporter Sean Flynn, father of Sophie Flynn '11.
Congratulations to the winner of last week's trivia contest, John Harris Jr. '09, who knew, of course that actor and producer Tim Stack P'09, father of Doyle, spoke at the 2009 Prize Day chapel service.
This week's trivia question: Trustees are on campus today and tomorrow for their annual spring board meetings. Who was the first female elected to the St. George's Board of Trustees?*
The first person to respond with the correct answer wins a coupon for $10 off a purchase from the SG Bookstore. Good luck!
The campus is emptying out today as students completed their final exam this morning and only some students remain to take SATs tomorrow.
