As part of the curriculum, the members of the Junior Class attended the 15th annual Junior Class Retreat at the Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina, February 24 – 26. Coordinated by Mrs. Laura Barr and Mr. Glen Rector, the retreat provided rising seniors with a “beyond the classroom walls” experience with a focus on loyalty, leadership and legacy.

The retreat included group activities, structured discussions, and opportunities for enjoying the facilities of the conference center located in the mountains of North Carolina. Activities included an obstacle course operated by the Mountain Trail Outdoor School, team-building exercises, and cooperation games.

Dr. Milt Lowder, a licensed counseling psychologist in Greenville who graduated from Wilson Hall in 1990, delivered the keynote speech with the topic of “Defining Success.” There were also presentations given by Mr. Fred Moulton, Headmaster, as well as from some of the dozen faculty members who attended the retreat.

Every member of the Class of 2020 had the opportunity to enjoy the significant benefits of a time set apart for community building and individual character development in a way that will not only benefit each student individually, but continue Wilson Hall’s strong tradition of effective preparation for college and beyond.
