Our Commencement Speaker

It is our great honor to welcome Jadi Taveras to present this year’s commencement address.

As the Head of School for Esperanza Academy, Jadi has created a culture of academic achievement and joy for young girls of color, inspiring each student to embrace their brilliance while learning in a community of justice.

Esperanza’s vision of “high challenge, high support, high joy,” has changed the lives of so many girls and lifted the cultural and ethnic communities in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Under Jadi’s leadership, the school has reimagined what an urban education should be and has transformed Esperanza Academy into a model of academic excellence.

We are excited to welcome Jadi to campus to address the class of 2023!
