“If you ever feel you are losing your way, know you can always come home to WT for our commitment to you goes well beyond today. Although you will no longer be in our hallways, you will always remain in our hearts.”  –Dr. Scott D. Fech, Head of School

The 59 members of the Class of 2019 were encouraged to appreciate the opportunities given to them, continue to be changemakers, and embrace challenges as the WT community celebrated the school’s 132nd Commencement exercises on June 6, 2019.

Student speakers Nadine Oury, Andrew ‘Drew’ Fingeret, and Meredith Warden were joined by Board President Dr. Jennifer Gonzalez McComb ’89 and Head of School Dr. Scott D. Fech in addressing the students and their guests.

“I recently received the invitation for my 30th Reunion. The invitation states ‘We look forward to looking back with you.’ I invite you to remember to look backwards and recall the people who helped you to get where you are.”  –Dr. Jennifer Gonzalez McComb ’89, Board President

Being at Winchester Thurston has, without a doubt, not only enabled me to fully see just how wonderful learning is, but also to appreciate the power of an environment that is extraordinarily conducive to learning in its many forms.”  –Meredith Warden

“…enthusiasm and leadership contributes to the way [the Class of 2019] faces every problem. We do not passively sit back and accept things as they are, we lead changes ourselves.”  –Nadine Oury, President, Student Council
