Founder's Day Remembers

The entire school community gathered at the John McDonogh monument on Friday, October 10 for the annual Founder’s Day ceremony. After fulfilling McDonogh’s wish that each year children plant flowers around his grave, the school community paused to remember alumni and former faculty and staff who passed away since the previous Founder’s Day. As Alumni Association President Michelle Motsko ’91 read each name, a bell tolled in the tower of Tagart Memorial Chapel and a flower was placed at the foot of the monument. Throughout the ceremony, meaningful reflections, song, and a flock of geese punctuated the respectful quiet.
