Congratulations, Class of 2021!
By Jennifer Fogarty, communications content manager
We proudly congratulate the 110 graduates of the class of 2021.
Hats off to the 110 graduates of the class of 2021 who were honored during the 57th La Jolla Country Day School Commencement ceremony on Friday, May 28. Altogether, they received 545 college acceptances and will embark on to 73 different colleges and universities, including four internationally. LJCDS is also proud to recognize 20 lifers from the class of 2021. Our lifers have called LJCDS home for 13 or more years.
For the first time, graduation was hosted inside Petco Park (San Diego’s MLB stadium). The program was also live-streamed for family, friends, LJCDS faculty and staff who couldn’t attend in person.
After Head of School Gary Krahn, Ph.D., welcomed the class of 2021, Upper School Humanities Educator Corbin Prychun gave the faculty address and Student Council Co-President Ashley Lee ’21 gave the student address.
Three awards were announced during commencement. Boston Moreland earned the Trustees’ Award, presented by Board of Trustees President Lucy Smith Conroy '90, for achieving the highest cumulative grade point average of the graduating class. Walter Chen and Andrew Kuhn tied to earn the Head of School Award, presented by Dr. Krahn, for achieving the second-highest cumulative grade point average. Head of Upper School Tom Trocano presented the Faculty Prize to Ruslana Fogler and Lauren Miller. This prize is awarded to two seniors who, through effort, character, scholarship, arts and athletics, have best demonstrated the ideas and spirit of La Jolla Country Day School.
Congratulations, class of 2021! We can’t wait to see how you inspire greatness for a better world.
