Awards Chapel (Virtual): May 26, 12:30 pm

On May 26, we will honor exemplary Grace students at our annual Awards Chapel. We hope you will join us for the celebration as Jen announces the 2020-2021 The Drew Nealley Walkers’ Club Award, The Theolyn Wilson Music Award, and The Daniel Benner Memorial Award winners. 

The Drew Nealley Walkers’ Club Award: Drew Nealley was an athletic, artistic and awesome first grade student at Grace. He liked to read, play with his friends, draw, and of course go to PE, but he really loved the walkers’ club. Although Drew was only with us for a short time, we remember his love of life and his ability to keep moving forward. The Grace community honors Drew in several ways: by participating in the Race for Hope each May, and also by recognizing the Grace student who has walked the most miles in the Walkers’ Club during the school year.The Drew Nealley Walkers’ Club Award recognizes perseverance and determination, and is another great way we remember Drew.  

The Theolyn Wilson Outstanding Student Music Award: This award is presented to a Grade 5 student who has had a solo in a major performance, has consistently demonstrated exemplary conduct in music class, and has developed excellent performance skills in singing and/​or playing an instrument. The Theolyn Wilson Outstanding Student Music Award is selected by vote of the faculty, who have seen and heard the nominees in performances at Christmas Chapel, the Spring Musical, and even assemblies, over the years. 

The Daniel Benner Memorial Award: This award is given to a student in Grade 5 who has participated on a Grace sports team and has exhibited scholarship, teamwork, and sportsmanship. The Grade 5 graduating class is a wonderful group of students who lead each other and their younger peers at Grace. We are immensely proud of each of them.This award honors a student who embodies the qualities of scholarship, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Daniel exemplified these traits as a Grace student and we are pleased to remember him by recognizing one of our graduating Gryphons.
