In the last few weeks, a group of Middle School students, representing Grades 6, 7 and 8 were appointed as Junior Prefects, mirroring the Prefect system in place in the Upper School.
The more than 50 students who applied went through a vigorous process. Each student submitted a written application and a teach recommendation, then went through an interview process before being selected to represent their grade level as a Prefect.
“I am very exited to be a prefect and I think it will be very fun.” – Dylan Dwyer, Grade 6 Junior Prefect
Grade 6 Prefects:
“I think that being a Junior Prefect is a huge privilege, and it is really fun to organize events and be a leader in the Mount Vernon community.” – Diane Foster, Grade 6 Junior Prefect
Grade 7 Prefects:
” It fills me with Joy to have an opportunity to give back to what has given me so much.” – Sage Allen, Grade 7 Junior Prefect
“I was so happy to hear that I was selected to be a Junior Prefect, and be part of such an amazing organization. The most exciting thing about being a Junior Prefect Is knowing that I am a part of making a difference in the school by getting to be a leader to my peers”. – Sydney Brice, Grade 8 Junior Prefect
