TMS Class of 2022 Graduates

The Master’s School Class of 2022 and their friends and families gathered at Valley Community Baptist Church in Avon, CT on Friday, June 3 for the school’s 51st Commencement. Each of the graduates was recognized and uniquely honored by a faculty member who noted the graduate’s admirable qualities, accomplishments, and future plans.
The ceremony included speeches from several students reflecting on their high school experience and thanking their families, teachers and classmates. Senior Katherine Culbertson concluded her reflection by saying “I wish time would slow down so we can build even more memories that I can look back on. However, this is just the prologue. A very long one, but a prologue nonetheless. So as we turn the tassel to the other side, it will be like we’re turning the page to chapter one of the rest of our lives.” Ceremony highlights also included both vocal and instrumental student performances, scripture readings by students and a video montage of the graduates during their years at The Master’s School. Each graduate was presented with their diploma as well as their unique class of 2022 medallion designed by senior art students.
In addressing this year’s graduating class, Head of School Dr. Mike Beck, a retired Naval Officer, explained that “planes on an aircraft need a 56-kilometer-per-hour wind to take off on such a short runway. To reach this steady breeze, the Captain turns the ship into the wind. Many would think the wind should come from the carrier’s stern or back, but that is not true. Jets must fly into the wind to achieve lift.” Beck charged the class of 2022 to fly boldly into the wind as they face life’s challenges and seek new adventures.
