Clapping Out Our Seniors

Clapping Out Our Seniors

One of the most memorable and emotional end-of-year traditions at Country Day is when teachers, staff, and students from all divisions line the sidewalks on campus to clap as seniors walk by wearing spirit wear from the colleges and universities where they will matriculate in the fall.

Before the Clap-Out, student council president Zach Corbin '22 addressed his fellow classmates in Keeler Theater one final time. 

"Today is a special day. And it is a special day because me and 69 of my best friends are nearing the end of our journey - our roller coaster ride is ending. We've been through a lot this year, but we've done it together. We've achieved so much, but I am most proud of how we did it together, as one. Today, as the 70 of us walk the Clap-Out path, we are 70 pieces of one strong class. We represent a fierce Nighthawk spirit that will remain forever on this campus."
