The Further Together award was established in 2021 as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of girls and women at The Hun School; the award is part of a two-part initiative that also includes a mural in the Hun Middle School that was designed and executed by students to celebrate both alumnae and future generations of the School. The award honors a student who has shown their dedication to female empowerment at the School through leadership and community engagement. Each year, the award recipient will design their very own tile that will be added to the mural. This year, Emma S. ’26 is the first-ever recipient of the Further Together Award.
Although John R. ’26 only recently joined the Hun Middle School as an eighth grader, he feels as though he has been a part of the community for years. Upon his arrival, John wasted no time getting to know his classmates through sports, clubs, extracurricular activities, and his favorite middle school experience, the Camp Bernie retreat.
Claire F. ’26 began at The Hun School as a timid seventh grader, eager to start at a new school but worried that it would be difficult to make new friends. Claire recalls being pleasantly surprised by the upbeat and all-inclusive atmosphere of the Hun Middle School and notes that making new friends quickly became the least of her concerns.
Our Middle Schoolers ended the year with an awards ceremony and talent show. See the photos on Flickr.
"Since starting at The Hun School in 6th grade, I have always been struck by the warmth and true friendships that exists and transpires throughout the Middle School."
