ASSIST Scholar Recognition

ASSIST Scholar Recognition

For the fourth year, Linden Hall has partnered with ASSIST, the American Secondary Schools for International Students and Teachers. Assist places exemplary International scholars in exemplary American Independent schools for an intensive year of study.   

I love this program description from their website:   

One of our goals is to create a worldwide circle of future leaders—friends who have come to know and respect one another, and one another’s cultures, by sharing a year of study and living together. International outreach begins with individual relationships; we foster these relationships through a year of academic and cultural immersion designed to affect peers, teachers, friends, family members and business associates for a lifetime. We believe that bringing together future American leaders and future leaders of other nations makes a substantial contribution toward promoting understanding and tolerance of cultures, racial designations and religious beliefs.  

Our 2020-2021 scholar came to us from Moldova and threw herself into her life here at Linden Hall, embodying ASSIST's mission to forge meaningful relationships with global resonance. Irina, we thank you for the gifts you’ve shared with our community and wish you well as you return to your families, friends and school. Please know you always have a home here at Linden Hall. We will miss you.   


Linden Hall Legend

Linden Hall Legend

It is my privilege to celebrate the students from the Class of 2021 who have attended Linden Hall since they were 6th graders during the 2014-2015 school year. During their time here, this group of young women has excelled academically, athletically, socially, demonstrated superior leadership qualities and been true to their unique selves. They have made significant contributions to their Linden Hall Family as well as their local and global communities. I am pleased to present “7 Year Legend” awards to the following seniors:

Presentation of the Class of 2021 Gift to Linden Hall


 Ahsa Sadhukhan 


My name is Ahsa Sadhukhan, and I am the Senior Class President. I am honored to present the senior gift on behalf of the Class of 2021. There are four things to know about my grade. We sing; we play instruments; we game; and we watch tv- possibly more than we should. Chances are you can always find a few of us - day or night - practicing the piano, singing a solo, playing video games, or binging a tv show. When deciding what our donation to Linden Hall should be, we kept remembering how we bonded with one another over these activities. This brings me to our senior gift, or should I say gifts?  We are so excited to donate three new TVs to the Linden Hall dorms: one each for lower Honeycutt, yellow dorm, and green dorm. In Honeycutt, we will install two new video game consoles and replace the shelving unit for the board games. Finally, we are happy to be making a directed donation to the music department to expand the sheet music collection and purchase new chairs and music stands. Hopefully, when you walk through Honeycutt, the Annex, or even Mary Dixon Chapel, you'll be reminded of how much the Class of 2021 loves the Linden Hall community.
