This month we are pleased to celebrate Pride Month in honor of our LGBTQ+ community members. As noted in the Town of Amherst’s proclamation (which can be read in its entirety here), “we celebrate and reflect upon the courage and accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community who continue to fight for progress towards securing important rights and freedoms to live freely and authentically, often through struggle and adversity.” All are invited to the ceremonial flag-raising tonight at 5:30 at the Amherst Town Hall and to participate in the many community activities planned for Amherst Pride @ the Mill District this weekend.
Today we said farewell to the Senior class at Summit Academy as they celebrated their graduation ceremony with friends, family and the entire Summit faculty and staff. Congratulations to these students as they pursue their next adventure! As we celebrate our Summit seniors, I am also happy to share pictures taken by Summit Academy students as part of a very special project they have been working on this year. You can read more and see their work in the newsletter below.
