Many people are familiar with Stephen Covey’s advice to start all projects and actions with the end in mind. A simple, short-term way to think about summer is to imagine what our children will write if given the opportunity to complete the traditional “My Summer Vacation” essay in August.
Just over a week ago, we broke ground on Transform. Like Commencement, it was both an end and a new beginning. We said farewell to the old buildings that have housed our teachers and students for decades, honoring generations of memories. We also took an irrevocable step toward completing the campus. Shorecrest is Transforming!
On Sunday, May 20, 2018, Shorecrest Preparatory School held its Commencement Ceremony for the 73-member Class of 2018. Among the graduating class were twins Samantha and Allison Epstein and twins Karli and Maverick McDonough. Together with Will McLoughlin, Jack Ledford and Breck Tanner these legacy students, with a family member who attended Shorecrest in the past, share a very special bond with the school. The connections for this class are strengthened with more members having relatives who have served on the Board of Trustees or who are faculty members. With nearly half the class honored as "Lifers," having been at Shorecrest for 12 years or more, it only makes sense that they would be as close as they are.
