Simply the Best: Congratulations to the Class of 2023!

Families and friends from around the globe gathered in the Bowl on May 28 to watch Lawrenceville’s 213th commencement.

At the ceremony, Head of School Steve Murray gave special thanks to the graduates’ families, saying, “You have entrusted to our care your greatest treasure. Your children make Lawrenceville what it is, and for these fleeting few years when you allowed us to have them in our care, they animated our lives with their endless humor and good cheer, their inquisitive minds, their kind hearts, and their loyal spirits – for that, we are truly grateful.”

Before joining Jonathan G. Weiss ’75 (President of the Lawrenceville School Board of Trustees) in handing out diplomas, Murray bestowed two of the School’s highest student honors. Jack Patel ’23 received the Edward Sutliff Brainard Prize, which is given annually by the faculty to the Fifth Form student whom it holds in the highest esteem. The Trustees’ Cup, awarded each year by the Head of School on behalf of the Board of Trustees to that student who has most influenced the School for good, was presented to Madeline Elizabeth Laws ‘23.

Murray ended his remarks by telling the now-former Fifth Formers, “We are sad to see you leave, but are excited for all that lies before you and are confident that you will bring the same energy, intelligence, integrity, and spirit to the next chapters of your lives as you’ve demonstrated here.  Remember – you will always be a Lawrentian.” 

Congratulations to The Lawrenceville School Class of 2023!
