Leela Rosaz Shariyf ’21 – Student Head of School

I want to start by thanking everyone who helped make this school year possible. The faculty members, the administrators, and the staff who worked so hard to allow many of us to return to campus and all of us to continue to receive a quality education. I’m grateful for their work and I’m hopeful that the student body can match it by following the safety rules and staying engaged in classes.

Opening Convocation Remarks

Hello Porter’s family. My name is Mariela Vazquez and I’m so excited to share this new school year with you all as Head of Diversity. Collectively, we have had a transformational year thus far, and we carry that within all of us very differently.

Informed

In the face of a global pandemic, a much anticipated U.S. Presidential election, escalating racial tension, staggering inequality, inflammatory and divisive rhetoric, and violence around the globe, it is more important than ever that we focus in on one particular element of our mission – educating young women to become informed.
