Today seventeen members of Athens Academy’s Class of 2021 were inducted into The Cum Laude Society in recognition of their commitment to superior scholastic achievement throughout Upper School. The tenth annual Cabaniss Lecture, which preceded the ceremony, was given by Mr. Richard Patterson, longtime Athens Academy biology teacher, science department chair, faculty advisor to the Student Judiciary Board, and track coach.
As the secondary school equivalent of Phi Beta Kappa, The Cum Laude Society recognizes superior academic achievement and sound character. Congratulations to inductees Charlie Chisolm, Sarah Collins, Eli Condie, Ellie Crosland, Ben Cuneo, McKenzie Elrod, Xinyuan Fan, Dru Hunt, Kate Kleiber, Malcolm Marett, Kavya Menke, Will Morris, Alex Oh, Lewis Scruggs, Anan Shen, Lucy Waugh, and Katherine Woody.
These students represent some of Athens Academy’s best and brightest. They are leaders, athletes, artists, actors, volunteers, and more. This fall they will attend the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, Wellesley College, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Washington.
