Volume IV | June 2018
Congratulations, Class of 2018 & Welcome Back, Alumni!

Dear Alumni & Friends,

Graduation and Reunion always remind us that our student body renews itself every four years and the rows of faculty that gaze out at the graduating seniors, the underclassmen, and their friends and families follow a different timeline.

Last Friday, June 1st, all three speakers—the senior speakers, AJ Mastrangelo and Jorie Van Nest, and the guest speaker, Pam Nwaoko ’06—expressed gratitude for the teachers and coaches, advisors and dorm parents who have made such a difference in their young lives.

Be sure to check out the graduation story , photo gallery , and recap video , and remarks from Pamela Nwaoko '06 .

Every year, a few of these great influencers “graduate” with the seniors, and this June, we say goodbye to two of the school’s longest-serving faculty, Linda Deasy, who has been at LA since 1973, and Mark “Doc” Haman, who has been at LA since 1983. In the quiet of a post-commencement schedule, we were able to sit down with Linda and Mark to ask them about their work and their longevity at Lawrence Academy.
We will celebrate both Linda and Mark at Reunion this weekend and hope you will join us to reconnect with old friends and with faculty who have made such a difference to so many.

From the hillside,
Robinson Moore
Associate Head of School
