On May 28 the school dedicated a tree to Liz Holt in honor of her 29 years of service to North Cross School. All lower school students attended the dedication where Ms. Holt told the students "I am a Raider, I will always be a Raider. You all are Raiders, and you will always be Raiders. Raiders are hard working, honest, and take care of each other. That's all there is to it." The maple tree is near the rock behind Willis Hall. A portrait of Ms. Holt is also underway and will be hung in Ellis Hall this fall.
