As we move into one of the most beloved seasons in Vacationland (summer), we wanted to take a moment to share some of our favorite places with you. Whether you are just discovering Kents Hill and the wonders of Maine or if you are a long-term community member, we invite you to find a new favorite place for a bite to eat, be reminded of that family trip you wanted to take, or just learn something from our team. After all, shouldn’t everyone want to keep learning? We think so!

Ask any athlete and they will be able to tell you, maybe even show you, their favorite t-shirt.

It might be the one they wore when they played their very best and now wear it for every game looking for the same results. It may be a souvenir from a big tournament. It could be a shirt handed down from a beloved teammate when they graduated or a sibling after their playing days had ended. We all have one or maybe two. I have two, one from the first time I played in the NCAA tournament and one from the last time. I am not sure why I hold onto them after 27 years, but I do.

The in-person graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021 was a moment of catharsis and celebration for our entire community. After 15 months of COVID-19 policies which tested each of us in ways we have never been before, we were able to gather, give hugs, and see smiles. Tears were shed and joy was felt. We are not ready to stop celebrating, so for those who would like to continue alongside us, here are some of the top moments from the Commencement.

During a typical school year and at the end of each athletic season, we would hold what we call a sports award ceremony. This year because of COVID-19 we were unable to hold each season’s sports awards at their customary time. Luckily, even if it was later in the year, we were finally able to have our Celebration of Sports. Our Celebration of Sports included awards, college signings, and of course, speeches given by Kents Hill School student-athletes. Included below are two written speeches by Kellie S. ’21 and Immanuel R. ’21, both whom are graduating and continuing athletics in college. We wanted to share their speeches as they were a perfect reflection of sports this year on The Hill.
