Notes
Alumna and board member Heather Mitchell '92 charged the seniors to Stay Woke. Her message was clear, "As graduates of this esteemed institution, in which almost 50 percent of the student body receives a sizeable allocation of financial aid, you have an obligation to give back to it. Whether you have received financial aid or not, every single one of you has benefitted from this extraordinary experience – in fact the experience was made extraordinary due to almost 50 percent of you receiving financial support – and you all have an obligation to give back to it." Heather explains that St. Andrew's provides a compass throughout your life and this compass will serve you well.
