On Tuesday, May 26, the Class of 2020 became Regina’s newest alumnae. The ceremony theme centered around the three symbols of our school crest, The Crown, The Star, and The Book.
Following our opening prayer, Diane Garvey, alumnae relations, and Elizabeth McCann ’09, the president of the alumnae board welcomed guests. Alumna and faculty member Ms. Annie Tully ’92 and Katherine Kinnaird ’08 this year’s recipient of the Young Alumna Medal were guest speakers and shared their personal growth stories and advice.
A few highlights from Ms. Tully’s reflection on the Crown and the Book:
- You made Regina your home with warmth and love for each other, your teachers, and your coaches. I want my daughter to go to your high school, the environment you created.
- You don’t need to feel complete and directed at this point. It is preferable to feel unfinished because it means you are still evolving. Be patient and encourage each other as you all become different versions of yourselves.
Katherine Kinnaird on the Star:
- My four years at Regina provided me the academic tools to succeed at college, grad school, and my career. But Regina’s tools are much deeper and include an understanding of self and investing in one another. The faculty and staff were excellent role models. I remember them always being available and spending hours answering my millions of questions. They helped me develop my passion for learning.
- I encourage you to view the world as your classroom and everyone you meet as a teacher.
President Schuster officially presented Katherine with the Alumnae Medal following the reflections. After the ceremony, the junior leadership board class treated the Class of 2020 with the Senior Slide. You can view the Alumnae Induction with this link.
