New Windsor School: Clintonian Society Inductee Ceremony | Sands Medal Award Winners
On Friday, June 10th the New Windsor school inducted 14 scholars into the Clintonian Society. The Clintonian Society was named in honor of the Clinton family of New Windsor, which dates back to the Revolutionary War era. The purpose of the society has always been to inspire an enthusiasm for lifelong learning while also promoting the ideals of Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Character, and Citizenship within school and throughout students’ lives. Students from grades 4 and 5 who are in excellent academic standing and have been exemplars as to the society’s ideals are eligible for induction. They participate in a formal ceremony carried out by current Clintonian members during which they recite the pledge in promise to uphold the ideals of the society.
The Sands Medal awards were created by Abraham Sands in memory of his father Nathaniel more than 150 years ago. Each medal shows the likeness of Nathaniel Sands on one side and the student’s name engraved on the other with the motto “Perseverentia Omnia Vincit” which means “Perseverance Conquers All.” Since its inception, the award has been given in recognition of those students found to be the most deserving in scholarship and behavior.
The 2022 Sands Silver Medal award was presented to Raul Pelaez and the 2022 Sands Bronze Medal was presented to Perry Velez.
Congratulations to all of the New Windsor School 2022 Clintonian Society Inductees and Sands Medal Award Winners!
