8th and 9th Grade Awards

The Class of 2024 took the stage on Tuesday evening, June 11, 2024, to celebrate their time together while looking forward to the next step in their journey.

The following awards were given during the ceremony: 

Jean B. Shepler Fine Arts Prize: Given annually by the arts faculty, this prize is awarded to a member of the graduating class who is an outstanding visual artist, performing artist (music and drama), or artist who has demonstrated visual and performing arts skills.

This year’s recipient of the Jean B. Shepler Fine Arts Prize is Salome del Rio.

Ninth Grade Outstanding Scholarship Award: The Middle School faculty presents the Outstanding Scholarship Award to the 9th-grade student who demonstrates the highest levels of scholarship in all areas of the academic program. While the student’s grades are a significant factor, the award especially recognizes the student who demonstrates scholarly enthusiasm, diligence, love of learning, and intellectual curiosity. 

The winner of the 9th Grade Outstanding Scholarship Award is Lorenzo Graham.

The Foote School Prize: Awarded to a member (or members) of the graduating class who, in the judgment of the faculty, best represents the spirit of the Foote School: a student (or students) who has demonstrated leadership, school spirit, love of learning, generosity of heart, and service to others.

This year, the Foote School Prize is awarded to Salome del Rio.
