Loomis Chaffee School
Local Students Graduate from The Loomis Chaffee School
2013 Jun 21The following students were among the 176 graduates from the Loomis Chaffee Class of 2013. The school's 97th Commencement Ceremony was held on June 7. Reflections and sage advice from Commencement Speaker Frank Bruni, Loomis Class of 1982, set the thoughtful and celebratory tone for Commencement. Bruni, the New York Times op-ed columnist and author, compared the world into which he graduated 31 years ago to the world into which members of the Class of 2013 are stepping. "Test yourself," he encouraged. "Experiment. Grow. Life is an adventure only as big and exciting as your willingness to broaden your parameters and stare down your fears." He advised students to say yes before they ever have the opportunity to say no because the self-satisfaction and benefits of doing certain difficult things far exceed the safety of letting fear prevent them from doing anything at all.
