On Wednesday, June 10, 2020, Germantown Academy celebrated the Class of 2027 (fifth grade) at the Lower School Final Assembly, which was held virtually on Zoom and YouTube. WATCH BELOW!
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 Om P. '28, Ainsley B. '28, John B. '27, and Jill P. '27.
Justin F. '27, Natalie R. '27, Asher P. '27, and Jordan W. '27 were each recipients of the Elma Coonrad Trupin Award, which is presented to a fifth grade student for exemplifying encouraging, and promoting, good human relations at GA.
The May Olympiad winners were Eliza Y. '28 and Andrew C. '27
Congratulations to the Class of 2027 as they head across the Connor Quad to Middle School next fall!
