Glenelg Country School celebrated its 30th Commencement Ceremony on Friday, June 7, 2019. We recognized and honored each of our 86 graduates for their many accomplishments and contributions during their time with us. This was the largest graduating class in the school’s history, and it included 23 “lifers” (students who have attended 13 or more consecutive years).

When Josef Marschall, a Glenelg Country School freshman, outgrew the Children AgainstsMines program by graduating from the lower school, he decided to take his activism into his own hands.
The Westminster resident, who has been involved in the Marshall Legacy Institute’s program since third grade, spoke to a service organization at Integrace Fairhaven in Sykesville last week to share his new mission: an independent fundraising campaign for an MDD, or land mine detection dog.

Shortly after the third-quarter buzzer sounded in Glenelg Country boys basketball’s game at John Carroll on Jan. 23, Justin Paar got up from the Dragons’ bench and zeroed in on the referee holding the game ball.
Up until that point, it was Justin’s younger brothers, Chase and Cole, who represented the Paar family on the court. Cole, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, has been the Dragons’ lone underclassman starter for much of the season, while Chase stands at 6-foot-10 and is the only senior on the roster.
The Osiligi Medical Center, a planned building to house a pharmacy, medical lab, vision center, and dentist’s office, moved one step closer to reality in August, when David Weeks, director of global education and community service, and Dr. Tayo Awotunde, a Maryland pharmacist, traveled to Narok, Kenya to meet with Kikanae Punyua ’11 and a local contractor to discuss breaking ground.
The GCS Boys Basketball team traveled to New York City on MLK weekend for the 16th Annual Big Apple Shootout. The Dragons were matched up against Long Island’s Lawrence Woodmere Academy and their star player Aidan Igiehon (Louisville commit). The Dragons won the game 44-39. Jordan Brathwaite ’20 was named game MVP, and Ian Swartz ’20 won the Academic Achievement Award.
