MVA graduates 188 students on Commencement Day, 2017

On Saturday, May 20, 2017, Montverde Academy held it's annual commencement ceremony in which 188 seniors graduated. All 188 students have been accepted to at least one college or university, and they are all continuing their educational journeys in college. 
 
The commencement ceremony was compromised of musical performances by MVA's select choir as well as Music Conservatory Director Aubrey Connelly-Candelario and world-renowned opera singer Ben Gulley. The keynote address was given by Renee Stephens Lundy '79. In addition to serving on the board of trustees and acting as the Academy’s general counsel, Mrs. Lundy is a board certified civil trial lawyer who practices at Dean, Ringers, Morgan & Lawton, P.A. in Orlando, Florida. She grew up in Montverde, Florida, and in 1982 she graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Juris doctorate in 1985.
