Silver Knight nominees announced

This year, guidance counselors Mrs. Ludy Joseph and Mrs. Rebecca Mendelson took over Mrs. Adrienne Shienvold’s role as Silver Knight coordinator. “I’m very, very excited for them to be working with these amazing kids,” Mrs. Blum said. 

Despite the pandemic placing nearly everything on halt earlier this year, 15 seniors modeled exemplary commitment to their community through volunteer service. These 15 students earned a school nomination for the Silver Knight community service recognition program run by the Miami Herald, with a formal ceremony in the Spring to honor the finalists in each category. 

“I’m so impressed with the service that our students have done, especially during COVID. When a lot of people were not able to do service, all of our nominees made sure that their service continued. That was extremely impressive,” Upper School principal Mrs. Elise Blum, who also serves on the Silver Knight nomination committee, said. “This is the most impressive group I’ve ever seen. It took us two hours to make the decisions, and the students that were not selected were really, really impressive. We had to really dig deep and look at things and it was very, very hard.”
