April 27, 2011
Randall Drain ’01 was the featured speaker for School’s 81st Cum Laude Society induction ceremony on April 26. Nineteen Haverford School students were inducted into the Society, along with two faculty members.
The new members are: VI Formers Ben Cutler, Justin Giorgio, Changhee Han, Colin Heffernan, Connell Kling, Alex Kumar, Nick Rhodes, Kaess Smit, Rameen Vafa, Zack Waldman and Jake Winoski; V Formers Tadas Antanavicius, Franklin Brown, Dean Feinman, Kelly Mao, BG Lemmon, Steven Molitor Jr., Peter Rogers, and Remi Yang; and faculty members Upper School Art Department Chair Chris Fox and Upper School English teacher Rebecca Smedley.
The Cum Laude Society, the School’s highest honor, is modeled on the college Phi Beta Kappa Society and honors academic excellence in secondary schools, selecting student members in their junior and senior years.
To be elected to Cum Laude recognizes not only sustained superior academic achievement, but also demonstration of good character, honor, and integrity in all aspects of school life.
Faculty members are inducted on the basis of their proven commitment to excellence in the classroom, and/or by virtue of previous membership at the secondary school level in either Cum Laude or the National Honor Society, or as a member of Phi Beta Kappa at the collegiate level.
