Every BB&N graduation is a celebratory event, but none was possibly more jubilant than the one held for the Class of 2021 on June 11 on Nichols Field at the Upper School campus. Only a few months ago it was unclear whether an in-person graduation was even feasible, but with many COVID restrictions for Massachusetts lifted, the graduation ceremony took place "in real life," as students often like to say. The temperate, sunny day could not have been more perfect, or appreciated, by those in attendance.
Blue sky, fluffy clouds, light breeze. I'm drinking chilled, fresh-squeezed lemonade and listening to my friends' string quartet play 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' in the courtyard. I'm talking to some peers I hadn't really talked to much before this spring. Why have we never talked before? They're so cool.
