Members of the Class of 2014 and their parents gathered at Graduates’ Grove on the upper school campus in late May for the annual brick ceremony, where 49 graduates placed bricks in the walkway to commemorate their years at Harker.
This Harker tradition was started by the parents of the very first class of upper school graduates in 2002. It has since become a way for graduating students to preserve the memories of their time at Harker and provide a reminder of their legacy for future graduates.
Placing bricks in the grove at this year’s ceremony were: Manon Audebert, Adarsh Battu, Wei Wei Buchsteiner, Regina Chen, Raymond Cheng, Varun Cherukuri, Will Deng, Nathan Dhablania, Callie Ding, Darian Edvalson, Kevin Duraiswamy, Julia Fink, Jeffrey Hanke, Ben Huchley, John Hughes, Alexander Johnson, Divya Kalidindi, Varun Kamat, Sean Knudsen, Arjun Kumar, Gaurav Kumar, Connie Li, Kimberly Ma, Maya Madhavan, Kevin Moss, Sebi Nakos, Anisha Padwekar, Sean Pan, Stephan Pellissier, Sravan Rajathilak, Ian Richardson, Isaac Rothschild, Vikram Sundar, Brian Tuan, Leslie Tzeng, Nihal Uppugunduri, Namrata Vakkalagadda, Nithya Vemireddy, Sameer Vij, Andrew Wang, Christina Wong, Sandra Yin, Sean Youn, Justin Young, Christopher Zhang, Kenny Zhang, Albert Zhao, Ziren Zhou and Andrew Zhu.
