Northwood School Holds In-Person Commencement

The 114th Northwood School commencement took place on the school campus,  Saturday, May 22, 2021, at 1:00 p.m.  Three large tents equipped with large video screens provided a socially distant viewing experience. A live stream was available for those unable to attend due to capacity limits or travel restrictions.

The Opening Invocation and Benediction were read by Stephen Reed, Senior Master. Noel Carmichael presented senior awards and prizes, and Michael Maher presented Headmaster awards. Donald P. Mellor, Class of ’71 and Senior Master Teacher Retired, gave the Commencement Address. The class speakers were Adelia Castillo and Lars Kroes.
