Wheatley has an incredibly talented study body, involved in so many activities both inside and outside the classroom. Areas in which students have always excelled have been the fine and practical arts. From incredible stage performances to award-winning literary magazines and newspapers, Wheatley students have provided so much entertainment and value to our community. To recognize some of the students who have made special contributions in these areas, the faculty advisors invite them to a special dinner at the Milleridge Inn.
In addition to a lovely sit-down dinner, the evening features student performances and a mini art show. The faculty advisors and students are reminded of the critical role they play in helping Wheatley remain a school where there is a place for everyone to shine.
A highlight of this year’s celebration was the presence of Al Jerome and his wife, Michelle. Mr. Jerome was there to present the Eve and Jerry Jerome Award, an award given to recognize his parents. This recognition given to the music student who has demonstrated outstanding skill, character and citizenship at Wheatley. This year’s recipient was Alexandra Boubour!
