Commencement 2016

“We have been taught that there is imagination without limits; we can do anything we can set our minds to. We hold our heads and hands high, undaunted by risk and confident in our own abilities.” – Elizabeth Russler ’16, First Honor Graduate

The Class of 2016 has officially taken their place as the newest members of the Ashley Hall Alumnae sisterhood.

  • With a class totaling 53, nearly half of our seniors accepted merit scholarships for academics. Many more students earned scholarships but chose to attend other institutions offering a better fit, substantial needs-based aid or instate tuition.
  • Cumulatively, the class garnered more than $3.1 million in merit scholarships to colleges and universities around the country.
  • Our graduates are attending 35 different colleges and universities.
  • Class members were accepted into 5 Honors Programs: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Morehead-Cain Scholar), Clemson University, University of South Carolina and College of Charleston.

Congratulations to the Class of 2016. We could not be more proud of these young women and all they have accomplished at Ashley Hall. Look out world, here they come. To view a comprehensive matriculation list for the Class of 2016, click here.
