Congratulations Waterford Class of 2019! We are incredibly proud of all you have accomplished during your time at Waterford and can't wait to see your journey as you pursue lives of meaning and purpose.
SENIOR ADDRESS BY RIVER KNIGHT ’19:
Each year, the seniors at Waterford give a gift to the school. Previous gifts have been trees, scholarship funds, benches … the class of 2019 wanted to stand out a bit. And they were successful in this!
We are excited to introduce new faculty that will join us on campus this summer and fall. Waterford faculty is composed of passionate and dedicated educators—experts in their fields. They are exceptional individuals who deliver on the Waterford mission and embody the Waterford core values, and the new faculty and staff members are anxious and prepared to join the Waterford family.
The team had an incredible group of novice girls! 10 novices, a lot of whom were chasing down the varsity with their erg times, to make the entire team so much stronger. At the Brine Shrimp Sprints, they had a great showing with wins by varsity women’s double, women’s novice quad, mixed doubles, and men’s single.
Throughout a student's time at Waterford School, many opportunities are available to discover and ignite their passions as they grow as learners and people. The Class of 2019 achieved success in the classroom, on the athletic fields, in the art studio, and on the stage; now they prepare to pursue lives of meaning and purpose in college and beyond. Congratulations to our senior class who are all committed to attend colleges and universities which will continue their growth and education!
The faculty and staff make Waterford School a wonderfully unique and exceptional place where students are inspired and shaped—the school is guided towards its mission of providing students with a world-class liberal arts education, by our talented faculty and staff. As the 2018-19 school year comes to a close, we take a moment to recognize and thank those members who are retiring, moving or pursuing new passions.
Waterford students are athletes, musicians and artists. This year, several Class XII students have been honored for their academic excellence in the classroom as well as in athletic or fine arts competitions by The Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA). The UHSAA is the leadership organization for high school athletic and fine arts activities in Utah. The belief of the UHSAA is these activities are an essential part of the high school experience and further academic performance while also producing better citizens.
Waterford would like to take a moment to honor Suzanne Conine for her 20+ years of successful participation in NCECA conferences and exhibitions. Suzanne has quietly, yet confidently put her ceramic program and Waterford School on the national map as one of the best around. Her outstanding efforts have had a life changing impact on her students and have inspired her colleagues. We asked Suzanne to share her experience and success with NCECA over the last 20 years. Congratulations, Suzanne!
