On May 20 we celebrated and recognized the graduating class of 2021 for their outstanding achievement and contributions to the diverse GHIS community. What a joyful moment it was for us all.
A graduation is both a culmination and a beginning, and that duality truly represents how meaningful this graduation was for GHIS students and their families, and all those who participated in their journey. For GHIS, their graduation marked an important moment as we continue to develop our innovative, forward-thinking school for young leaders who understand that a shared society is possible–having lived it for two years! Over that time they learned to live together in a cross-cultural environment, and were stimulated by their classwork and continual exchange of ideas. They showed that an equitable shared society is possible and desirable.
Although COVID-19 impacted our students and our world, they adapted to the unforeseen changes, by continuing to excel in their academics and engaging each other in meaningful interactions, small and large. They impacted GHIS with their innovative and intuitive ideas, and by coming together to create a vibrant, diverse community whose impact we hope will reach beyond the green lawns of our campus.
We look forward to seeing the impact that these GHIS ambassadors of our joint communal vision will have as they move onto college and into their chosen careers.
