Honoring Senior Performing Artists

The Class of 2020 is chock full of talent! Twenty-four of our graduating seniors found a kind of second home in the Franklin Theater. They are actors, dancers, choreographers, composers, costume crew members, instrumental musicians, singers, stage managers, and stage crew members. Each one of these students has made a significant impact on the Performing Arts programs at Waynflete. We feel a great loss as we missed our opportunity to see these seniors in action from rehearsal to the stage and backstage during March, April, and May. Along with their families and friends, we would have loved more opportunities to acknowledge these artists with thunderous applause at numerous culminating performances from March to May.  

We hope you will take a moment to visit each Senior Spotlight to help us say “bravo and brava!” to our senior performing artists. Class of 2020, we congratulate you, we celebrate you and your accomplishments, and we thank you for giving so generously to Waynflete Performing Arts.

Honoring Spring Senior Athletes

Twenty-four baseball, crew and lacrosse senior athletes will not have a chance to wear the Waynflete uniform and represent the Flyers this spring.  But their impact on Waynflete athletics has been significant.

The crew team had the best season in program history in 2019 winning three regattas. The boys and girls lacrosse teams qualified for the post-season every year with this group of seniors. Boys lacrosse won a state championship in 2018. And the baseball team was loaded with talent and poised to make a play-off run this spring. Boys lacrosse coach Parker Repko says about the seniors:  “…They represent the very best of Waynflete. While we won’t have the chance to make new memories, we should be grateful that they helped us make wonderful memories that will last forever.”

Thank you spring senior athletes!
