In addition to advisors surprising seniors with at-home visits, Senior Day included a surprise that honored a faculty member who is oh-so-beloved by seniors! This year's yearbook was dedicated to Dean of College Counseling Kathy Cleaver, who retired in June after having helped Upper Schoolers find their perfect-fit colleges for 28 years. Yearbook advisor Greg Murray surprised Mrs. Cleaver at home with the happy news.
“At first she was just surprised that I would show up on her doorstep” Murray said. “When I told her to open her gift, she said, ‘It's not my birthday and you are not giving me a Mother's Day gift, so what in the world?!’ When she pulled the yearbook out of the gift bag, she still didn't seem to realize what was happening — until I told her to turn to page 5. She immediately teared up and was so honored. It was a wonderful moment!”
