CRAIG ALUMNI UPDATE:
We had previously written about our alumni student- Andrew Best.
See the original article:http://www.craigschool.org/interview-with-alum-andrew-best/
Andrew is about to graduate from Marist College. We recently learned that Andrew was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to conduct post-graduate studies in Malaysia. The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants to graduating seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists to study abroad for one academic year. The Fulbright Program only makes awards to about 1,900 U.S. students each year. This is what Andrew had to say about Craig’s impact on his education:
"I do admit that Craig has shaped me and put me on the right path. I believe without the skills and lessons I learned at Craig I wouldn't be here. The teachers are in simple words the most dedicated and supportive I have come across in my student career."
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GRADUATING 8TH GRADE CLASS OF 2017.
We have included some of the wonderful comments from Alumni and Friends:
Thank you so much, The Craig School! Your graduation ceremony was wonderful, personal, emotional and very honest. Congratulations to all the graduates for speaking from their minds and their hearts. You all have the self-awareness and perseverance to rock the world! Marybeth Fox Soutar
Feeling old. I had my graduation from The Craig School in 2009. Still think of time there some of the best years of my life. Scott Schlosser
What a beautiful ceremony! We laughed, we cried! I am so grateful to the entire Craig staff for the past six years. Thank you for your passion and dedication to these kids. The memories created at Craig will live on in their hearts forever. Kathy Holmes Robb
What an incredible day!! Thank you The Craig School for today, and even more so, for the last 3 years! You are truly the best teachers and administrators on the planet!! Congratulations to all the graduates and your families! You have so much to be proud of...you have all achieved so much already...you've only just scratched the surface!! Best wishes to all of you in High School!! Andrea Galanti Korb
Craig School knows how to do graduations right. My son graduated from 8th grade last year and I was caught completely off guard. I did not know I would need a Costco sized tissue box. Congratulations to all of these wonderful students and the amazing staff standing behind them. Ruthann Hartmann
The graduation ceremony was just like the overall The Craig School experience -- a wonderful celebration of kids and all their gifts and abilities. A big big thank you to all the talented and nurturing teachers and administrators at the Craig!! Sarah Golin
