We are proud to announce the 2014-15 Head Boy and Head Girl, Drew Vincent and Meredith Jones. Drew and Meredith were elected to the positions by HSP Upper School faculty staff from a competitive pool of outstanding and highly-qualified juniors on the merits of their academics, leadership, and character. As leaders of the student body, Drew and Meredith will set the model for student achievement and discipline and serve as ambassadors within the HSP community and to the outside community.
The first announcement was made at its traditional time, during the Upper School's May 1st May Crowning ceremony. Students, faculty, and staff gathered on the Upper School quad before the statue of Mary and, after praying the rosary, Mr. Curtin invited the 8 girls and 5 boys running for the position to come forward. Presenting them with roses, Mr. Curtin praised the group, acknowledging that each of them were highly and deeply qualified to represent HSP as its Head Boy or Girl. Zack Palmer and Aimee Sinks, 2013-14 Head Boy and Head Girl, were invited to the podium, where, solemnly, they declared the new Heads, passing the mantle of leadership to Drew and Meredith. More than just a metaphorical mantle, though, Zack and Aimee also passed on a keepsake: green ties worn by the Head Boy and Head Girl and passed down to the last four Head Boys and Girls.
Passing the mantle now gives Zack and Aimee the opportunity to retire from their responsibilities and prepare for the gauntlet of senior activities ahead of them: AP exams, final exams, prom, the senior trip to Rome, and graduation. Drew and Meredith have large shoes to fill: Zack will matriculate at Dartmouth University, and Aimee will enter the United States Coast Guard Academy, where she's accepted their offer of a four-year education valued at $350,000.
We are proud to announce the 2014-15 House Presidents:
House of Trent: Peter Nagel
House of Chalcedon: Megan Radosta
House of Nicaea: Kyle Winkler
House of Lyons: Thomas Hardt
Peter, Megan, Kyle, and Thomas were elected to the positions by their peers from a competitive pool of outstanding juniors on the merits of their academics, leadership, and character. As leaders of the student body, these four students will work alongside the Head Boy and Head Girl to set the model for student achievement and discipline and serve as ambassadors within the HSP community and to the outside community.
These four now take the reins from equally well-regarded seniors Selina Kelete, Luke Whelan, Noah Duffy, and Mia Voss, as they look ahead to graduation and to college.
