Grier Graduation Ceremony

Following a senior year unlike any other, months of planning, weeks of preparation, and days of filming, Grier's Class of 2021 graduated on the sunny morning of May 22, 2021!  Grier's Commencement Ceremony was held in-person on Lodge Lawn and Colonnade and attended by families and members of the Grier Community. Grier TV broadcast the event live to YouTube for those who could not attend. A recording of that broadcast is available below.
Junior class servers attended the graduating seniors who proceeded down the Colonnade in their long white gowns. The Director of Grier welcomed everyone. Senior members of the National Honor Society gave speeches, reflecting on their time at Grier, the challenges of the past year, and their hopes for the future. Head of School, Mrs. Gina Borst presented senior awards and, along with Mrs. Cari Crago, the diplomas. Trustee Mr. Geoffrey Grier welcomed the new alumnae and Student Council President Laila W. led the closing prayer before everyone sang Grier's Alma Mater.
