I came across this gem while preparing slides for our third Hallmark session 'Strong Sense of Community'. This image is from Page 1 in Carillon, our first senior yearbook in 1980. This picture is a testament to our school being founded on the hallmark of being an inclusive and welcoming community.

This past week, the Princeton Tiger Lilies, an A cappella group that includes ESD alum Ann Dockery (‘17), came to Bray Theater to perform a few songs for a group of ESD students. The show was amazing, and Ann stunned the crowd with her rendition of the famous song “Desperado” by the Eagles. It was very inspiring for me as an ESD student who is very passionate about music. I hope that I can carry my passion with me wherever I may go after I graduate from ESD in the same way Ann has carried her passion to Princeton.
