During this year's commencement ceremony, 2021 graduate Sage B. was recognized as a student of excellence with the Manvel Schauffler Award. Tim Owens, EW's Dean of Students, announced the winner and discussed the significance of this achievement. Manvel Schauffler, a founding board member of Explorer West, played an integral role in the development of the school. At our annual commencement, we recognize a graduating student with his namesake award. The faculty selects an 8th grader who best exemplifies those traits most closely associated with 'Schauff':
Academic excellence, community service, enthusiasm, kindness, and total integrity in all matters, large and small.
Congratulations, Sage! We know you will take those traits with you and enrich your high school community in so many ways.
