During the assembly, Head of School Rich Schellhas presented the annual Kershaw Medals to two fourth grade students and two fifth grade students. The Kershaw Medal is named after former Head of School William "Pappy" Kershaw (1877-1915), one of the most important administrators in GA history. The award, for honor, scholarship, deportment and general character, was bestowed upon Cece D. '27, Andrew C. '27, Rebecca R. '26, and Bennett S. '26.
Sophia L. '26 and Walter M. '26 won the Elma Coonrad Trupin Award, which is presented to a fifth grade student for exemplifying encouraging, and promoting good human relations.
Andrew C. '27, and Harry G. '26 were each the recipients of a Math Olympiad trophy.
Congratulations to the Class of 2026 as they head across the Quad to Middle School next fall!
