Meet a Cannon Lifer (and Class Salutatorian): Katie, 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 Katie's turn.

Do you have a memory from JrK that you hold dear?
I remember my first day coming to Cannon School. I was very nervous, but Mrs. Perkins welcomed me with open arms. I will always remember how inclusive and inviting the environment was. One of my favorite memories was the Teddy Bear Picnic. I was so excited to show off my cotton candy bear!

Is there a Cannon School event or tradition that you look back on fondly?
I loved Gold and Maroon Day. I loved this event because it was a time where the whole Lower School was brought together in a competitive and fun way.

How would you describe your Cannon School experience in three words?
Exciting, positive, and unforgettable.

What is the most important lesson you learned during your time at Cannon?
I learned how important it is to be a part of a community. Cannon has such a loving and nurturing environment and I believe that this is crucial for success. Through this, I have learned how to put relationships first and how to cultivate long lasting connections.

What are your plans post-graduation?
I will be attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. where I will study biology. I will also be a member of the softball team. This has been my dream since freshman year of high school, and I am so grateful for this opportunity.
