While a number of recent alumni of the Ensworth theatre program, including Jack Alcott ’15 and Briana Middleton ’16, have enjoyed high-profile successes in television and film, another set of alumni have been carving their own path to success together by continuing to collaborate across their respective college campuses.
At Princeton, Henry Byrd ’18 quickly made a name for himself with his fancy footwork on the football field. His technique and prowess earned him playing time his freshman year, and he was the recipient of the Donold B. Lourie Award as the top offensive freshman.
Salwa Daouk ’21 believes strongly in creating communities where all members feel a sense of belonging and purpose. At Ensworth, she was actively engaged in Project TALK and Tearing Down the Walls, facilitating important conversations and activities to help foster respectful dialogue and develop an inclusive culture.
Caleb Upkins ’17 lives by the mantra of creating opportunity through connection with himself and others, and he believes that both are equally important. Ensworth provided the environment for him to find these connections through rigorous academics, top-tier sports, and world-class art programs. It was by blending different sounds and experimenting in the music studio at Ensworth that Caleb found his passion.
One skill we hope to instill in our students at Ensworth is the ability to find balance in their daily lives. The curriculum, student life, clubs, arts, athletics, and afterschool activities are intertwined thoughtfully.
Ensworth welcomed SAGE to Red Gables Campus in 2018 and Frist Campus in 2020 to provide full-service dining for our students, faculty, and staff. The delicious, nutritious, locally sourced, and sustainably produced food was a perfect match for Ensworth’s mission of educating—and nourishing—the whole child. Let’s meet the head chefs for each campus.
Ensworth’s Grounds Crew is responsible for the care and maintenance of our grounds as well as the upkeep and care of our athletics fields. The members of the Grounds team believe it is essential to provide students, parents, and visitors with the most beautiful campuses possible.
The ultimate goal of Ensworth’s security and risk initiative is to do everything we can to make sure people feel safe when at Ensworth. These efforts called for a need to diversify in the last several years.
Ensworth is fortunate to be in a community whose local history and cultural exports have had a significant global impact. Our students have many educational opportunities focusing on teaching and learning within the context of Nashville.
