Read the August/September 2021 Digital Edition

August September 2021 Plymouth Magazine

We’re well on our way through summer with fall in our sights. Typically, this issue, which features themes of education, family and seniors, would include our annual Prep Elite article. Each year, we ask area high schools to nominate incoming seniors, who exemplify the schools’ standards of excellence in a multitude of areas. Our editorial team then highlights four or five of the students in our pages.

This year is different—because last year and much of 2021 have been “different.” Under regular circumstances, it’s difficult to feature only a handful of the nominated students because they all are amazing in unique and admirable ways. This year, we felt it would be downright impossible to choose Prep Elites.

This time around, let’s salute all our high school seniors for what they’ve missed, endured, overcome and accomplished as they navigated the end of their high school educations and beginning of their “what’s next.” We’re proud of Plymouth’s students—from the littles to the seniors.

Our team did, however, stay true to this issue’s themes, and Madeline Kopiecki shares on page 16 how Sara Swan of Looking Forward Life Coaching educates and encourages clients of all abilities to make successful transitions. On page 14, Angela Johnson sheds light on practical ways families can assist aging parents. Visit page 12, where I have the pleasure of writing about Virginia Sievers, who embarked on her writing career after many years as an educator.

And that’s not the half of it! I hope you enjoy this issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together.

Until next time,
Renée Stewart-Hester
