2021 State of School & Impact Awards
The sixth annual State of the School was held on the evening of September 21, with members of the Harvey community attending both in-person and virtually. This event officially “kicks off” the new school year each September and gives everyone the opportunity to learn more about school this year including academic programs, new teachers and staff, athletics, the arts, the international student program, admissions and enrollment, the school’s financial outlook, capital projects, endowment, the Annual Fund, and more.
Head of School Bill Knauer delivered the presentation with humor and warmth, and also introduced videos of our teachers sharing their passion for working with students and finding their fit at Harvey.
We are thrilled to have 20 international students joining our community this year from eight countries; Brazil, Spain, China, Taiwan, Germany, Russia, Tadjikistan, and Lithuania, and a full boarding program including domestic students.
Our Board of Trustees Chair Eileen Walker announced the second annual Impact Award recipients. The award recognizes and honors members of the Harvey community who have given back in an unprecedented way, having a meaningful impact on the community. The 2021 recipients are Harvey alum Jim Wood ‘41, former parents Kathy Treat (trustee) and Jeremy Treat, and Harvey English teacher Virginia Holmes. We thank them for all they do for Harvey!
This year’s Student Council President senior Halima Konteh also participated, sharing her goals for the 2021-22 school year as the leader of Harvey's Student Council.
At the end of the evening, attendees were treated to carry-away snack boxes to enjoy on their way home!
