Senior Abigail Kanes Named Main Line Student of the Week

Congratulations to Abigail Kanes '21 for being selected as the Main Line Student of the Week!

Aside from outstanding achievements in the classroom, Kanes is a member of the Glee Club, Orchestra, Honors Jazz Combo, Shipley Singers, and participates in all three of Shipley's theatrical productions.

When asked by the Main Line Times what in her opinion is the best aspect of being a student at Shipley, she replied, "The best aspect of being a Shipley Student is the encouragement to do whatever I want to. When I started in the Upper School, I knew I wanted to be involved in the arts as much as possible. What I didn't know is that most of the ensembles I wanted to be a part of met during the same period. The Shipley music teachers worked together with me to make a schedule of when I would be able to go to each ensemble. Instead of telling me to choose one, they changed the schedule so the required days for each ensemble were different, making it possible for me to participate in all of the ensembles."
