Over President's Day Weekend, 38 sophomores and juniors traveled north to visit colleges in the Carolinas.

The tour, coordinated by the Office of College Counseling, included stops at Clemson University, Furman University, Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Elon University, Wake Forest University, High Point University and Davidson College.

Along the way, students met with admissions representatives and heard from Pace alumni at the schools about their college experiences. Thanks to Upper School faculty and staff members Erica Barbakow, Jonathan Ferrell, Grady Stevens, Ben Wescott, Gus Whyte and Shakila Williams for chaperoning the trip!

Canstruction may be one of the Middle School's most beloved—and most impactful—traditions.

In advisory groups, students collected non-perishable food items and designed elaborate structures, using the items as building materials. Groups chose from themes such as "All Things Pace," "Sports," "Famous Structures" and "Animals."

The food collected during Canstruction was donated to Meals on Wheels Atlanta to help feed the senior citizens the organization serves.

Seniors Jeb Carter, Jackson Fuller and Harrison Lewis have been recognized as 2018 National Merit Finalists and have advanced to the final round of the National Merit Scholarship Program's annual competition.

National Merit Scholars are selected from the group of Finalists based on their performance on the PSAT and their "abilities, skills and accomplishments." They each receive a $2,500 merit scholarship. Scholars will be announced later this spring.
