Headmaster’s Trophy Awarded to Deserving Senior
We want to congratulate Kelley Sheets ’14 for being named this year’s recipient of the Headmaster’s Trophy. Sheets received the distinguished award at this year’s Recognition of Excellence convocation, held annually to recognize faculty and students who excelled in the classroom and in the community throughout the school year.
The Headmaster’s Trophy was given to Berkeley in 1963 by an anonymous donor to be presented to the student “who best represents the true spirit of Berkeley.” The selection process for this award includes the entire Berkeley community in that students, faculty and administrators all cast their votes for the individual they feel is most deserving of the award. The Headmaster’s Trophy is Berkeley’s oldest award given to a student and considered the school’s most distinguished.
"I'm so honored to have been given this distinction because of what Berkeley means to me," said Sheets. "Leaving is bittersweet, but I am forever grateful for the memories and friendships I've made. The fact that this award was voted on by the entire Berkeley community adds significant importance because of the respect and admiration I have for each individual on campus. The amount of effort I see put forth among my teachers, administrators, and classmates, both in and out of the classroom, never ceases to amaze me and I feel grateful to have gotten close to so many of them. Being honored by the group of people I respect most means the world to me."
