The Greylock Echo sat down with Senior Annie Art who recently became the 2023 recipient of the Mount Greylock Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents Academic Excellence Award, also known as the Superintendent’s Award. 


Echo: How did you find out about the award?

Annie Art: I got an email from Dr. McCandless in the fall. It was very kind and said I got it and it would be presented in December.

E: When did you start at Mount Greylock?

AA: I started here in seventh grade, I think it was 2017.

E: What do you do outside of school?

AA: I really enjoy running. I’m on the Cross Country team here and I spend my springs just running on my own. I also enjoy just being outside, reading, stuff like that.

E: What do you like most about Greylock?

AA: I think it’s a really cool environment and community where people like to support each other and push each other. 

E: What are your plans for next year?

AA: I’ll be heading up to Vermont where I’ll attend Middlebury College. I’ll probably be studying something environmental studies related. I might join the running club and play some intramural sports. It seems like a really great community and everyone just loves the place.

E: Do you have a favorite memory at Greylock?

AA: They all include the times when I felt part of a community. Things that stick out are different sports teams victories or just cheering on other teams. 

E: What will you miss most about Mount Greylock?

AA: I think I will miss the teachers I’ve gotten close with. Seeing the same familiar faces in the halls is nice.
