Middle School Honor Day

Middle School Honor Day

The Frances Bond Davis Theatre was buzzing with excitement on the morning of Friday, May 26. The Theatre was packed with families and friends who were there to celebrate the 8th grade class at Harpeth Hall for completing their Daugh W. Smith Middle School experience.

Speakers included Middle School Director, Judi O'Brien who welcomed the crowd and introduced Sabrina Russell, Class of 2022, who delivered a thoughtful, warm and articulate thank you letter to the Class of 2021, praising them for their spirit and inclusiveness. Grace Lee, Class of 2022, was chosen to be the Eighth Grade Speaker, and she did not disappoint! Her witty and wonderful speech had everyone laughing with her about some of her favorite memories and experiences of the year. There were several exceptional orchestra and choral performances and the Presentation of Certificates. Please see the program below and list of Certificate Recipients.

Congratulations Class of 2022!! We are so proud of you!!
