On Thursday, seven seniors and five juniors were inducted into the Westridge Chapter of the Cum Laude Society, a national academic honor society that promotes scholarship and honors academic excellence in independent secondary schools. The students are:


•    Kayoko F.

•    Muse L.

•    Emma R.

•    Julia S.

•    Shamilka S.

•    Simona S., and

•    Sarah V.



•    Rileigh C.

•    Grace W., and

•    Leanne W. 

They join the six members of the Class of 2015 who were inducted last spring: Dylan J., Sarah K., Juliet L., Jasmine L., Madeleine R., and Lena T.

“This is one of my favorite evenings – a time when we acknowledge outstanding students who strive for excellence, justice, and honor," said Head of School Elizabeth McGregor. Jemma Giddings, Assistant Head of School, provided the event’s address. “Personal accomplishment for personal gain will ring in the moment, but it will not sustain. It is our charge to build something that lasts, to create something that sustains, to ensure that our voices carry beyond the breath in our lungs,” said Giddings. (Click here for the full remarks.) 

Westridge, a member of the Cum Laude Society since 1974, may select up to 10 percent of its junior and senior classes for the Society each year. Please join us in acknowledging the work and accomplishments of the members of the Westridge Cum Laude Chapter.
