And so goes a small sampling of the list of diverse colleges and universities near and far that mark the next destination for members of the Tallulah Falls School Class of 2021.
There are 73 graduates heading to institutions of higher learning with the total number of acceptances quite lengthy.
With graduation less than a month away, seniors are closing in on final decisions, making plans to send deposits and figure out dorm and roommate assignments.
On April 21, the close-knit class shared where they were headed during the TFS Board of Trustees meeting. In turn, board members extended good wishes to the students. Blended learning students submitted a video in advance so that everyone could be represented.
“This is a remarkable class,” said President and Head of School Larry A. Peevy. “They’ve persevered during this most challenging of academic years, receiving multiple college acceptances and earning millions of dollars in scholarships. We are excited to celebrate the many accomplishments of the Class of 2021!”
Among the class are the recipients of several high-profile scholarships, including a QuestBridge scholar, a Jack Kent Cooke Foundation scholar, a Habersham EMC scholar and the receipt of a Dr Pepper Dude Perfect award.
Also represented are scholar-athletes planning to pursue a sport at the collegiate level – golf, baseball, volleyball and beach volleyball.
