FCDS Names Winners of School’s Five Most Prestigious Awards at Commencement

Every member of the 2019 graduating class enriched the school in his or her own way, and each faculty member made an impact on our students and their learning. By tradition, the school recognizes four of members of the graduating class and one teacher with special awards.

Lauren Taylor ’19 won the Pattie Williams Stoltz Director’s Award, which is presented annually to the senior who has exhibited marked academic improvement and whose actions reflect an appreciation of the ideals of freedom and responsibility in his or her personal growth as demonstrated in the distinguished work of Pattie Williams Stolz.

Katherine Angell ’19 was awarded the Carolyn P. Spencer Faculty Award, which is given annually to that senior whose academic and personal excellence has best demonstrated a full appreciation of the opportunities offered by Forsyth Country Day School and whose actions reflect love of learning, thirst for knowledge, and positive spirit as demonstrated in the distinguished work of the late Carolyn P. Spencer.

Yasmin Horner ’19 won the Hagerman Award, which is presented each year to the senior who best exemplifies the characteristics of citizenship and service to the school and community.

Valedictorian Jacob Parker ’19 earned the Founders’ Award, which is presented annually to the senior with the highest weighted grade point average after completion of the senior year.

It was a great year for the Angell family! Long-time Upper School math teacher Teresa Angell was named the winner of the 2019 Jones Award, which recognizes the teacher whose love, understanding, and commitment to others embodies the highest ideals of the teaching profession.

Congratulations to these four exceptional alumni and to Mrs. Angell!
