Holton officially kicked off the 2020-2021 school year with a very unique Convocation ceremony this morning—the first ever to take place via live stream from the Amphitheater, with the audience of students, faculty and staff, Board members, and families at home.
Head of School Susanna Jones, Board Chair Adrena Ifill Blagburn '87, Leighton Rogers '27, Soa Andriamananjara '25, and Macy Daggitt '21 delivered remarks, which were punctuated by beautiful musical interludes pre-recorded by student instrumentalists and singers.
We are pleased to share the full ceremony below, as well as the full text of the speeches!
(We apologize to viewers for the unexpected technical difficulties and thank you for your patience as we embark on many firsts during this unique Hybrid Learning experience!)
