Year-End Awards & Inductions

Awards & Accolades

Join us in celebrating the remarkable achievements of our students this year.

Although our year-end award ceremonies and celebrations will not take place in person this spring, we are committed to honoring our students’ many outstanding academic, athletic, artistic and service-oriented achievements. Our Crimson spirit is alive and well and the entire MBS community takes great joy in celebrating the inspiring work of these students!


Cum Laude Inductees

The Cum Laude Society, modeled on Phi Beta Kappa, was founded in 1906 at the Tome School in Port Deposit, Maryland, to promote learning and scholarship in secondary schools.  The Beard School received its Cum Laude Society charter in 1950, the Morristown School in 1958, and Morristown-Beard School in 1976.

Each chapter elects to membership those members of the senior and junior classes who have demonstrated academic excellence, intellectual curiosity, and good character.

3x4 Awards

Congratulations to the 16 MBS seniors who were officially honored as being “3x4” athletes — participating in a varsity sport for three seasons a year during all four years of Upper School.

“I want to congratulate all of our 3x4 Award winners at MBS!  This is not an easy thing to do and these 16 students make up our biggest class to date,” said Director of Athletics Joanne Dzama. “I would like to thank all of these students for their commitment, fortitude, leadership and perseverance through the successes and failures they have faced during the past four years as MBS athletes.  I am extremely proud of them and I look forward to adding their names to the banner in the Athletic Rotunda soon.”

Participation Awards

It is with great honor that MBS recognizes and congratulates 80 members of the Class of 2020 who have committed to the same sport for all four years at MBS.  These student-athletes make up 73 percent of their graduating class. This is a 25 percent increase of student-athlete commitment from the previous year.  

Joanne Dzama, Director of Upper School Athletics, congratulated the students, saying, “Commitment is often what separates the great from the just good enough, the achievers from the dreamers and in sports, the champions from everyone else. Commitment is about never settling or being satisfied.  It is staying the course when outside influences pull you in a different direction. These 80 student-athletes worked incessantly to improve themselves each year rather than banking on prior success. They always push the limits and tested their own comfort zones.  It isn’t easy to remain committed.  There are plenty of reasons to give up and give into temptations.  In today’s society and in high school, these temptations are everywhere.  Even the voices in your own head challenge your loyalty to the sport and the process. Congratulations on your commitment and your ability to focus on your goals.”

Math Honor Society

Twenty-one Morristown-Beard School students were recently inducted into Mu Alpha Theta, an international high school mathematics honor society with more than 1,500 chapters across the United States and abroad.

The principal purpose of Mu Alpha Theta is to stimulate a deeper and more effective interest in mathematics.  To be eligible for induction, students were chosen based on their successful completion of at least two years of high school math at the honors level, a cumulative math GPA of a 3.67 or higher, a commitment to extracurricular math activities, and a recommendation from the Math Department.  

Congratulations to this year’s inductees who are listed below.
