Jeffrey Austin, of Somers, was recently recognized for academic achievements during the 2011-2012 school year.
During the Convocation, Kate Caspar, assistant head of school for academics, began by reflecting on the change of date of this year's celebration, "After many thoughtful conversations, Mr. Richards and I decided that convocation-which is, in essence, a celebration of learning-ought to be the first official kick-off before classes. I want us to take this moment to reflect on the year ahead as we honor those students who, in one way or another, distinguished themselves in the classroom last year."
Jeffrey was awarded the World Languages French 2 Award for his achievements in the subject, as well as the Mathematics Department Geometry Award. Jeffrey is the son of Stephen and Beverly Austin.
