Introducing the CFS Class of 2013
The Church Farm School held its 91st Commencement Exercises on June 1, 2013 in the Chapel of the Atonement. Thirty-two new alumni received their diplomas and Bibles from Mark T. Carroll, Chairman of the CFS Board of Directors and Rev. Edmund K. Sherrill, Head of School. Following hymns, prayers, and anthems by the CFS Choir and the assembled faculty, parents and friends, Po Sung Kim ‘13 gave the Valedictory address. Special awards were then presented. As the ceremonies came to a close, The Rev. John Daniels, Chaplain, and Rev. Sherrill sent each boy out into the world beyond CFS with the traditional blessing on behalf of The Church Farm School and the Episcopal Church.
