the SBA Student/Athlete Pledge
The pledge, said Keller, had become outdated and "seemed distant, adultish, and hard to understand.
"We basically started from scratch and brainstormed a list of things that are important to our community and important to remember as SBA students.
"A few areas the kids thought of that I never would have included are the fact that it was a privilege to attend SBA and that it’s an opportunity to always keep in perspective.
"We had some really insightful conversations as a small group and then presented a first draft (written mainly by Steven Tetrault and Cassidy Cichowicz) to the whole school during an all school meeting.
"The committee took feedback and made a few alterations to the pledge, and it was ultimately reviewed by staff before being published."
The final product, signed by all SBA student/athletes at a Village Hill formal dinner and pledge ceremony last week, can be seen below.
Finally, kudos and many thanks from the entire SBA community to Chef Scott for a wonderful dinner!
