Walker’s student government, the Big 7, were inducted for the 2021-2021 school year on Monday, May 3.
Following welcoming remarks by Head of School Dr. Meera Viswanathan, outgoing Student Body President Lizzy Strapp ’21 offered her congratulations to the incoming student leaders and reflected on this past year, saying, “Today allows a moment of celebration and reflection for my fellow Big 7 members, who have had to do what no students before them could even imagine … adapt their positions in office to account for a worldwide pandemic. You had to examine and understand what your responsibilities were pre-pandemic, and then meld them to a pandemic atmosphere. You needed to be creative, patient, and brave, and I am so thankful that it was the six of you that I got to take this unprecedented journey with. We struggled together, and we persevered together.”
The 2021-2022 Big 7 members were inducted by Dean of Students Kathleen McNary Pillsbury and Senior Class Dean Mallory Pasquariello. Incoming Student Body President Allison Wall ’22 shared, “Together, I know that we will accomplish so much and I can’t wait to begin. Before our next school year even starts, I hope to work with our new Big 7 to plan Opening Days that, for our new students, will allow them to feel at home from the moment they step on campus and for all of us will be a celebration of being so much closer to the Walker’s that we love and miss so much. The future is uncertain, but above all I’m filled with hope.”
We congratulate the following student leaders, and extend thanks to our graduating 2020-2021 Big 7 members!
