STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: senior farewell

Coach Tom Caffrey poses with recipients of the Athlete of the Year awards

Earlier today the Prep celebrated its graduating seniors, the Class of 2011, with our annual Senior Farewell. Seniors started the day with a breakfast hosted by the Alumni Association, and enjoyed time with their classmates to sign yearbooks. The entire student body and faculty were on their feet as the seniors processed in to the gym in their cap & gown to Pomp & Circumstance for the Senior Farewell program.

It was announced that this year's senior class was awarded $2.3 million in scholarships to college, and accepted to more than 200 universities in 38 different states. Click here for more about where our Class of 2011 will be heading.

Senior awards were given for excellence in the classroom, in athletics, in leadership, and for overall contributions to life at Fairmont Prep. For a complete list of award recipients, click here. Special awards are given annually recognizing the top members of the class. Pictured below are these award winners:

A special tribute was made to Coach Tom Caffrey, who is retiring after 51 years of teaching, 12 of which were here at Fairmont Prep. In the coach's honor, the Athlete of the Year Awards have been re-named the Coach Caffrey Athlete of the Year. See photo above for a photo of Coach Caffrey with the first recipients of this award, Alan Shim and Tavleen Kochar. We'll miss you, Coach!
