Bolles Phoenix Society Inducts 2019 Members
2019 phoenix society inductees

The Phoenix Society announced its 2019 inductees this month in a special early-February ceremony on the Bolles Upper School San Jose Campus.

Founded in 1967 by noted Bolles arts educator Arthur Carnes, the Phoenix Society is an honor society within the Bolles fine and performing arts department that recognizes juniors and seniors who excel in two or more areas of the arts. Phoenix Society candidates demonstrate a commitment to the demands of artistic vision, delight in the process of creative discovery and show gratefulness and humility in the face of achievement.

Bolles Fine and Performing Arts Director Laura Rippel and Kelly Cullen, sponsors of the Phoenix Society, led the induction of new student members in Lynch Theater. Many friends, family, faculty and society members were present.

The fine and performing arts department is proud of this year’s induction class and congratulates them on their “above and beyond” accomplishments and excellence in the fine arts:
