    22 graduate from Loudoun Country Day School

    On June 11 at 11:00 a.m., 22 eighth grade students from Loudoun Country Day School walked to the stage of the new auditorium to “Pomp and Circumstance,” played by the LCDS middle school orchestra, for their last official appearance together as a class.

    For this class, it was a year of firsts – their first year at the new campus and the first class to graduate at from there.

    The girls were dressed in white dresses, the boys in navy jackets and ties, as they sat in rows for the ceremony. After “The Pledge of Allegiance” and “America the Beautiful,” Headmaster Randy Hollister welcomed students, faculty, parents, friends, and families and gave his traditional individual tributes to each student.

    “Eighth graders, whether you have been at LCDS since pre k - as several of you have – or for three years – as three of you have – you have made us very proud,” he said. “You have given us much to remember, to laugh about, and to reflect on, with admiration and appreciation. From your accomplishments in academics, the arts, athletics, and community service, you have lived our LCDS mission, showing that it is an affirming beacon for a meaningful educational experience.”

    After Hollister’s tributes, the LCDS middle school choir sang “Don’t Stop Believin”, followed by Student Council President Elizabeth Woods’ address.

    Elizabeth stressed how students in eighth grade looked out for each other through the years, expecting they will remain close after their LCDS experience, and will always remember that they shared a connection from their time together here.

    After Elizabeth’s speech, the traditional awards were presented: the Angus Treviranus Memorial Award, given to the rising eighth grader that the middle school faculty judges to use the best of his or her abilities and talents, which was given this year to Nell Smith; the Philip E. DuPont Memorial Award, given to the eighth grader who most visibly exemplifies concern for other people – this year shared by Natalie Wylie and Brendan Kennedy; and finally, the Headmaster’s Prize, awarded to the student who exemplifies the philosophy of the school, which was awarded this year to Drew Styles and presented to him by last year’s recipients:  Alex Rossi and Spencer Gennari.

    Chairman of the Board of Trustees Fred Schaufeld then presented the graduation certificates to each student.

    Among the schools the graduating students will attend this fall are: Highland School, Woodgrove High School, Episcopal High School, Thomas Jefferson School of Science and Technology, the Bullis School, the Blue Ridge School, Mercersburg Academy, Middleburg Academy, Paul VI Catholic High School, Loudoun Valley High School, Tuscarora High School and Herndon High School.

    WOW - I feel that I gave my children an opportunity to think outside the BOX and you just proved that I did and that they will be so much better off…  Thank you for confirming this.


    Sarah, I just feel bad for the kids who aren’t continuing in a private school or going to Jefferson.  I can’t imagine the transition from this la-la land to Herndon High School.  That kid is going to have to adjust real fast when they are sharing the hallway with some kids who were just recruited into the MS-13 fold.


    Pampered brats that don’t know the first thing about sacrifice or doing without.


    Way to go Drew!


    Thank you LCDS for 3 unforgettable years! Best of Luck to all 22 students…We will miss seeing all of you together. The Browns.


    Great class, great school! We will miss everyone…Congratulations Robbie and the rest of the class! The Weatherwax Family


    Jessica Crew we are so proud of you - best luck at Highland School - Love Mom and Dad
