We proudly congratulate the 116 graduates of the class of 2017 who are inspiring greatness for a better world.
This year’s class included 22 peer leaders, 24 Cum Laude inductees, a National Merit Scholar, a U.S. Presidential Scholar, a record number of lifers (29), and exceptional scholars, artists and athletes of character. They logged nearly 10,000 hours of community service around the globe over the past four years and received more than 540 college acceptances worldwide.
On Friday, June 2, 2017, Head of School Gary Krahn, Ph.D., welcomed the crowd to the 53rd commencement ceremony with “let’s get rowdy,” inducing another round of applause for the graduates. He also recognized the families, friends, faculty, staff, board members and all other members of the LJCDS community for contributing to the success of the students. “They are talented young adults who are prepared to make a difference wherever their journey may take them,” says Dr. Krahn. “Our confidence in them is not based on what they have accomplished, it’s based upon who they have become.”
