Mr. Gower would like to recognize Ruth Murray-James. I have enjoyed watching your enthusiasm for learning and your confidence grow over the last two years. Your consistency and reliability will take you far. I appreciated how you weren’t afraid to make mistakes and were focused on learning for the sake of learning. You always worked well with others and were a reliable contributor to group discussion and activities. I enjoyed seeing you make personal and relevant connections to your learning and I’m sure it will serve you well in the next stage of learning! Carpe Diem!
Mr. D. would also like to chime in on Ruth Murray-James. Ruth is a big part of what makes our advisee group tick. She is always looking for compromises when we are trying to decide what to do as a group, she is quick to laugh, she is very honest with me, and she is funny (especially when she is talking about the latest social media goings-on)! I have especially enjoyed having the lunch bunch of Ruth, Amanda, and Abigail join me for lunch almost every day for the last year! Ruth is going to be sure that Canada is never the same when she heads off to college! I will miss her so much!
