Mike Molina, Head of School at the Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys in Southeast Washington, updated St. John’s on the resilience of the school during the pandemic, the school’s plans for the academic year, and highlights of the school’s impact through its very first graduating class—kindergarteners from the school’s inception who completed high school last spring.
