Graduation!

Last Saturday, Liza and Hallie graduated from St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Austin. They’ve both been accepted to Vassar in the fall. We’re very proud!

Hallie

Here’s an excerpt from Hallie’s Senior Address at graduation:

“… St. Stephen’s has taught us more than trigonometry and how to analyze literature. It has taught us how to learn, how to discover, and how to strive. It’s given us a space to make the mistakes necessary to cultivate confidence to face the unknown and passion to improve our minds, bodies, and spirits … We’re aware of everything we’ve accomplished to get us to this point in our lives, and we wouldn’t be here without this school on a Hill … St. Stephen’s has allowed us to earn our wings; now we just have to take off and fly … Congratulations, Class of 2014: it’s been a great seven years; now go face the future!” 

 

As is the St. Stephen’s senior tradition, they couldn’t wait to light up after the ceremony!
