  • Class of 2019 Commencement

    Posted by Julia Budd on 6/15/2019 12:00:00 PM

    The Woodstock Academy Commencement Exercises on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. on the Woodstock Common celebrated the graduation of over 300 students.

     

    Senior class president, Madelyn Grube, welcomed classmates and guests.

     

    Margaret Virginia Ritzau was honored as the valedictorian of the Class of 2019 and Katherine Rose Harrington as the salutatorian.

     

    The Woodstock Academy’s most prestigious awards, the Yale Honor Cup and the Donald and Hope Williams Scholarships, were presented during Saturday’s commencement exercises.

     

    The Yale Honor Cup is the highest honor bestowed on a graduating senior by The Woodstock Academy’s faculty. The Yale Cup was established in 1930 by nine Academy Alumni who graduated from Yale. These Alumni presented the school with two cups to be presented to the best all-around senior girl and boy. The first presentation was made at a Class Day ceremony in 1930. The 2019 Yale Cups were awarded to Margaret Ritzau and Zachary Paige.

     

    The Donald and Hope Williams Scholarships are awarded to students who have exhibited outstanding academic achievement, demonstrated a commitment to excellence and a willingness to accept challenges, and are active participants in The Academy community through service to others, and as leaders. The 2019 Donald and Hope Williams Scholarships were awarded to Margaret Ritzau, Zachary Paige, Madelyn Grube, and Katherine Harrington.

     

    Ame Faith Tsamaase addressed her fellow graduates with an adaptation of her first place essay, “Don’t Give Up,” from the Kathryn Robertson Essay Contest. The award is one of the highest academic honors a writer can achieve at The Woodstock Academy and was established in memory of Kathryn Robertson, English Department Chair at The Woodstock Academy from 1948 to 1963.

     

    In addition to meeting the requirements necessary to receive a Woodstock Academy diploma, graduates were recognized for grade point averages deserving of summa cum laude, magna cum laude, cum laude, as well as membership in eleven distinct honor societies.
