McCallie senior Will McGregor has accepted the highly respected Morehead-Cain Scholarship to attend the University of North Carolina.

McGregor joins a long line of McCallie graduates to accept the Morehead scholarship, and he is the first McCallie alumnus to accept the scholarship since John Stevenson ’07.

Blue Tornado Spring Sports Shine with Success

McCallie's State champion soccer team

A team state title, a national runner-up finish and several individual state titles highlighted McCallie’s spring sports season which wrapped up the last week of May.

The soccer program, which has gone 43-5-8 over the last three seasons under Head Coach Chris Cushenbery, captured the school’s first state soccer crown since 1999.

The Blue Tornado defeated Brentwood Academy 3-1 in overtime to advance to the state’s final four. At the TSSAA’s Spring Fling in the Murfreesboro area, McCallie’s state semifinal opponent was the 2016 state champions, Christian Brothers of Memphis. Senior Noah Cingilli snapped a scoreless tie with a rebound goal in the 48th minute which would stand for the 1-0 victory. The win set up a matchup with Montgomery Bell Academy which had eliminated McCallie from the state tournament each of the last four years.

Class of 2017 encouraged to "Share your gifts, talents and resources" at Commencement

Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on June 13, 2017

As Hal Daughdrill ‘73, Chairman of the McCallie’s Board of Trustees, officially welcomed the Class of 2017 into “the long blue line” of alumni, he shared with them a brief reflection on what makes the diploma and their experiences on the Ridge so indelible for their lives. He spoke of his visit to a Golden M reunion, where men celebrate their 50th reunion year and one particular conversation he had.

It was at that point that I turned to one of the gentlemen standing next to me and said to him how remarkable it was that these men felt the impact of McCallie and their teachers so deeply and so strongly so many years after the fact. He turned to me and said, “Hal, it’s been this way ever since the day we graduated. It’s been like this for the last 50 years.”
