Miles Fah and Benjamin Whipple among class of 34
Two residents of Beacon, Miles Fah and Benjamin Whipple, graduated from the Oakwood Friends School in Poughkeepsie on June 10 during a ceremony held under a sprawling copper beach tree. Both have been at Oakwood Friends since sixth grade. They are among a graduating class of 34, each of whom spoke for a few minutes at the ceremony about their experiences at the school.
Oakwood Friends School, founded in 1796, is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory day and boarding school serving grades 6 to 12.
