Seven Hills Graduates 97 students in 49th Commencement

The words of commencement speaker Sara Eisen ’02, a financial journalist and CNBC anchor of “Squawk on the Street,” stressed the importance of following their passions to the Class of 2023. “Do what speaks to you, even if it doesn’t to anyone else. Focus on what can make you special and stand out. Prove yourself thorough hard work and determination,” Eisen said. Seven Hills celebrated its 49th Commencement in the Field House on the Hillsdale Campus on June 2. The 97 graduates, clad in caps and gowns, came together to commemorate their myriad of achievements and time at the Seven Hills Upper School. They listened to words of wisdom from several school community leaders, including Head of School Chris Garten, Head of Upper School Matt Bolton, and Board of Trustees Chair Steven Baggott. Students also heard from classmates Anna Papakirk, Graham DeWitt, and Mark DeBlasio, teacher and parent Brian Wabler, and teacher Bryce Carlson.
