While Semester 2 of the 2018-2019 school year is well underway, The Storm King School took a moment to recognize the achievements of our students during the first half of the year. On Thursday, January 10, the school community gathered in the Walter Reade Jr. Theatre for the Fall Academic Awards Ceremony. These awards, affectionately known as the “Book Awards,” are a yearly tradition at Storm King where personally-selected books are given to students from each class offered at SKS by their teachers.

In his opening words, Dean of Academics Dr. Timothy Lance explained that these awards are designed to “uphold the principles of scholarship, creativity, perseverance, and character” and that “each year, the awards are given to students who are committed to the pursuit of excellence.”

To hand out the awards, Dr. Lance called the faculty members of each academic department on stage. The audience applauded as the smiling students came up from the audience to receive their books along with a handshake or a spontaneous hug from their teachers. The evening, which also included the induction ceremony for new members of the National Honor Society, marked another great semester of academic achievement at The Storm King School.
