February 2, 2023: Today on Ground Hog Day, Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter weather, but St. Timothy's Peaches thinks that he's wrong. Over the past week, Peaches has started shedding her thick winter coat in preparation for spring -- and STT students Nadya L. '24 and Caitlyn H. '24 are helping to keep her coat brushed and shiny in the process!
Each year, the International Festival brings the St. Timothy’s community together, encouraging girls from all over the world to showcase their own country, or to join in another performance. This year was no exception--thanks to technology, students were able to participate both in person and virtually.
Performances looked a little different this fall, but our students worked hard to put on a really great show. Our fall play, Love, Loss, and What I Wore written by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron based on the book by Ilene Beckerman.
Congratulations to Olivia Ibeh '20 on receiving the Van Hollen Public Service Award. She was presented the award for being a student who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to community service. The Van Hollen Public Service Award recognizes Senator Chris Van Hollen's strong belief in the importance of community involvement and service to others. Leadership in service requires students to look beyond themselves by engaging in their community, forging new relationships and collaborating with others to stand up and affect change.
Congratulations to Symone Welch. She was awarded the oldest and most prestigious scholarship in the nation, the Morehead-Cain. She will be joining the Morehead-Cain Scholars Class of 2024 at UNC Chapel Hill. What an incredible achievement and honor.
