Go Out and Create Yourself

By Head of School Joellen Shannon


The musician, poet, and Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan once said, “life isn’t about finding yourself or finding anything. Life is about creating yourself.”


Class of 2022, as graduates of Sussex School, you have the experience, tools, and knowledge to help create your best selves. You have the capacity to make the most of this one precious life.





Your years at Sussex have empowered you to question and design your life, your community, and your world. It is your time to use your creativity, courage and intellect to become active citizens and contributing members of society. For this, we are grateful because, as it turns out, we need you.


Thank you for sharing your elementary and middle school years with us at Sussex. What a gift to be on this journey with you.


Congratulations to the Class of 2022!
