Meet a Cannon Lifer: Anna Ruth, Class of 2020

The experience our Lifers have at Cannon is truly special - they spend fourteen years (from JrK - grade 12) in our hallowed hallways! We’re spotlighting several, and today it's Anna Ruth's turn.

Do you have a memory from JrK that you hold dear?

Yes - Mr. Gossage giving me my award at the Teddy Bear Picnic.

Is there a Cannon School event or tradition that you look back on fondly? Why?
I loved Gold and Maroon day as a kid; I think that it was so fun to come together in friendly competition and school spirit.

How would you describe your Cannon School experience in four words?
Prepared me for life.

What is the most important lesson you learned during your time at Cannon?
I learned that it is ok to ask for help, and that you’re often much better off asking for it than not.

What are your plans post-graduation?
Washington and Lee University 2024!
