2016 WINSTON GRADUATES: THEY DID IT!
Congratulations to the class of 2016!
All nineteen seniors reached their high school graduation milestone on Saturday, May 21, 2016.
Joshua White was recognized as having attended Winston the longest, for a total of 10 years. In the Valedictorian address, Ian McGinnis – a 9-year Winston Eagle – summarized how Winston altered the direction of his educational experience by quoting Albert Einstein: “Everyone is a genius, but if you a judge a fish on how it climbs a tree, it will live out its life believing it is stupid.” Winston provided the environment in which Ian’s true talents could flourish.
Upon learning about The Winston School San Antonio and being asked to serve as the commencement speaker, Dr. Kent Hamilton took time out of his personal life to learn about the students he would be addressing. After attending the Winston prom, touring the school, and hearing the students’ accomplishments during Friday night’s Baccalaureate service, Dr. Hamilton was prepared to relate his own educational experience and his journey to a thriving career in dentistry. Through the support of his mother and teachers, Dr. Hamilton was taught the strategies he needed to work through his dyslexia. He has, and still continues to, accomplish far more than anyone would have dreamed. The audience and graduates were moved by his story and inspired to keep pushing ahead to reach their own individual dreams.
We congratulate our 2016 senior class for accomplishing their high school goals, and wish them the best as they continue down their individual paths of success!
Nine of our 2016 Graduating Seniors have received scholarships with a total value of over $1,339,200!
