The senior class asked for a speaker on thoughtful philanthropy to deliver the graduation keynote address. Happily, the senior class was treated to two female movers and shakers on that topic at the school’s 198th Commencement ceremony on Sunday, May 27, 2012. Kathryn Moeller, current recipient of a National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Dissertation Fellowship, and Emma Willard School Class of 1965 graduate Michal Colby Wadsworth addressed the Class of 2012. Eighty-four girls representing 12 countries and 13 states earned their diplomas at this year’s ceremony. They included 58 boarding students and 26 day students whose hometowns range from Arusha, Tanzania, to New York, NY, and from Stara Zagora, Bulgaria, to Saint Paul, MN. Emma girls graduating this year were admitted to 158 colleges and universities. In the fall, they will matriculate at institutions such as Amherst, Bates, Boston College, Brown, Bryn Mawr, Carnegie Mellon, Colby, Cornell, Dartmouth, Emory, Georgetown, Grinnell, Hamilton, Johns Hopkins, Kenyon, Lafayette, Macalester, Mount Holyoke, New York University, Northwestern, Rochester, Smith, Stanford, Vassar, Wellesley, and Williams. Congratulations, Class of 2012!
