63rd Commencement: The Final Farewell to the Class of 2017

Hundreds of spectators rose from the pews of The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception as the sounds of Edward Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance filled the room. Seventy three seniors, donned in green and gold robes, were met with facial expressions of pride and excitement as they took their last steps as Carroll students. Two-by-two, the prospective graduates filed into their seats; boys in green on the left, girls in gold on the right. The kind yet commanding voice of President & CEO Beth Blaufuss reminded students in her Call to Order that, “our world is full of change,” and as products of Carroll, they should embrace and enhance the inevitable change that is upon us. She quoted the famous Robert Hoderny saying, “the world will not be saved by sixes or sevens,” as a reminder of the standard of excellence they are to adhere to as they go forth into the world.

A Silver Celebration: Honoring Carroll's Greats for the Past 25 Years

As the clock struck six on the evening of June 12, 2017, the doors of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Roof Terrace Restaurant opened. Guests presented their silver ticket to enter a hallway of gratitude to a handful of continuous donors. The friendly face of President & CEO of Carroll, Beth Blaufuss, greeted each attendee as they entered into the 25th Annual Spring Benefit. The first hour was filled with reconnecting with Carroll family over the sounds of The Exclusives, a live jazz band. Former classmates greeted each other with the classic, “I haven’t seen you in years,” and, “Do you remember…” that accompanies the reuniting of old friends. Many gathered under blue skies on the terrace that overlooks Washington, DC, and has a view of the Washington Monument in the distance. Chatter continued in between bites of salmon, steak, potatoes, and vegetables until two students took the stage to deliver When You Believe by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.
