Welcoming Summer, Looking Ahead

The events St. Johnsbury Academy put on for seniors last week—the Virtual Academy graduation, Senior Breakfast, Class Day, the parade through town, the Prom outdoors on Brantview Lawn, complete with fireworks, and outdoor Commencement—were fairly magical. After the year we’ve had, these final days felt liberating. We were being transported, finally, to a world in which we can see each other again.

Nelson Eaton and Constance Hammer present a check to Mrs. Cady for a donation to the SJA Assistance Fund, as part of the National Honor Society's 10K Fundraiser. Nine teams were formed to raise funds for nine different charities chosen by NHS members. The group raised $6,000. The 2021 NHS Induction Ceremony video can be viewed here.
The Senior Class Council poses in front of their class gift. The Class of 2021 presented a tree to the school in memory of Brian O'Farrell, an Academy teacher and class advisor for the Class of 2021, who passed away in 2019. 
Congratulations to the boys' track team on their D1 State Title. Saturday's win at Burlington marks the team's 32nd state title. The girls' team finished in second place behind MMU.
