CENTREVILLE — The Gunston School celebrated its 111th commencement June 11, honoring the class of 2022 with a waterfront ceremony overlooking the Corsica River, as family and friends looked on. The procession began with bagpiper Robert Wallace, followed by school faculty and staff, and then the graduating seniors.

Head of School John Lewis introduced commencement speaker, Kristen Greenaway, President of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels. Under her leadership, CBMM has seen a healthy increase in attendance through the presentation of increasingly innovative exhibitions, and expanded education and shipyard programming, as well as being awarded a grant of $5M from the State of Maryland to build a new Maryland Dove for Historic St. Mary’s City Commission. Additionally, Greenaway was awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the National Maritime Historical Society in April of 2022.
