Shelton School held numerous year-end awards assemblies, culminating with the Class of 2019 senior graduation on Saturday, May 26. Sixty-six seniors received their diplomas, turned their tassels, and tossed their caps in front of a cheering audience of some 1,500. They have received acceptances to 111 colleges and universities, and together been awarded $5,856,028 in merit scholarships.
Valedictorian was Evan Antich, who will be attending Dartmouth College and majoring in English. Salutatorian was Etan Cohn, who will attend Carnegie Mellon and major in statistics.
Commencement guest speaker was Dallas resident Rick Sapio, founder and managing partner of Mutual Capital Alliance, Inc. Sapio, an author and entrepreneur who has founded more than 20 companies, encouraged students to do as he had done – recognize that creatively coping with childhood learning differences and obstacles may one day be the foundation to successfully dealing with business and personal setbacks.
“Today the entire Shelton community celebrates our 66 seniors and their success,” says Executive Director Suzanne Stell. “We’re also receiving news of college graduations from Shelton alumni, and we share pride with them as well. This is what gives joy and meaning to the word,
