Katherine (Katie) Titus P ’20, ’23, Mercersburg’s seventh head of school, returned to campus in May for the inaugural presentation of the Katherine M. Titus Leadership Award, which recognizes and celebrates the lasting legacy of Titus’ leadership as Mercersburg’s first female head of school. The award provides a nominal cash gift to a student entering the 12th grade who embodies the everyday leadership traits that Titus exemplified: “lofty ideals (contributing fully to the community through imagination, gratitude, and love), great faith (in self, others, and the future), noble integrity (demonstrated strength of character when no one and everyone is looking), and a ceaseless devotion to a mighty task.”
Twin sisters Zareena Sorho ’23 and Zarreen Sorho ’23 of New York City were announced as the first recipients of the award during the school’s Moving Up Ceremony in the Irvine Memorial Chapel.
The same day, Titus’ official school portrait by Chinese artist Jie Ruan was unveiled; it now hangs in Traylor Hall alongside portraits of Titus’ six predecessors.
