The Wyndcroft School had the honor of hosting Wes Johnson, a distinguished alumnus from the Class of 2013, as the third guest speaker in their Alumni Speaker Series for the 2022-2023 academic year. Wes's visit on Thursday, May 25, 2023, proved to be an extraordinary opportunity that left a lasting impact on students, faculty, and staff alike. Not only did Wes and his bandmate, Gabe, deliver an inspiring performance, but Wes also shared insightful reflections on his time at Wyndcroft and imparted valuable life lessons to the eager Upper School students.

It was not just the musical performance that made Wes's visit so uplifting. During his time at Wyndcroft, Wes discovered his passion for both athletics and music, and he credits the school for nurturing these passions. In his address to the students, Wes reflected on his own journey, sharing that it is perfectly normal not to have everything figured out at the age of 13. He emphasized the importance of embracing the process of growth and exploration, allowing oneself the freedom to discover new passions and change directions when inspired to do so.

Wes's personal experiences served as a source of reassurance for the young students, who often grapple with the pressure of finding their true calling at a young age. He encouraged them to have confidence in their ability to evolve and adapt, reminding them that their interests and aspirations may change over time. Wes's words resonated deeply with the audience, as they provided a refreshing perspective on personal growth and the pursuit of one's dreams.

The Alumni Speaker Series at Wyndcroft continues to be a valuable platform for students to connect with accomplished graduates and learn from their experiences. Wes Johnson's visit served as a testament to the transformative power of education and the enduring impact of a nurturing environment. As the series progresses, future speakers will undoubtedly provide further inspiration and guidance, empowering the next generation of Wyndcroft students to embrace their passions, take risks, and forge their own extraordinary paths.
