The Frances Bond Davis Theatre was buzzing with excitement on the morning of Friday, May 25. 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 Kate Maree Brewer, Class of 2023, who delivered a witty, thoughtful and articulate thank you letter to the Class of 2022, praising them for their confidence and many talents. Katherine Pei-ning Phillips Hu, Class of 2022, was chosen to be the Eighth Grade Speaker, and she was excellent! Her 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.
Congratulations Class of 2022!! We are so proud of you!!
