St. Andrew's Episcopal School celebrated the 60th anniversary of its founding last Friday with a convocation help beside Lake Sherwood Wise on the North Campus.
The procession consisted of the K through 12 student body, faculty and staff, corporation members, former trustees, and visiting clergy.

The service featured readings by St. Andrew’s students; prayers by a former school chaplain, The Reverend Shannon Manning, and the current school chaplain, The Reverend Jennifer Deaton; and a homily by The Very Reverend Edward O’Connor, Dean of the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew in downtown Jackson.
