Head of Middle School Amber Berry commented, “We take joy in the accomplishments of the students recognized today and all of our students recognized throughout the year for their contributions to the St. Luke’s community.”

During the ceremony, Berry took a moment to thank the Middle School Student Council for their outstanding work this year: “This year, students had to be creative, resilient, and flexible, given the ever-changing conditions of the year. Under the leadership of Faculty Advisor Mrs. Westerberg-Egan, these students went above and beyond to create meaningful and fun experiences for our students. Thank you for creating incredible community bonding and community building events.”
