Polak Parts Ways

Polak Parts Ways

Hannah Ma ’22

This year was the last year for Mrs. Melissa Polak as she, along with her family, is moving to Bluffton, South Carolina. Mrs. Polak contributed to the Western Reserve Academy community in countless ways. While most students remember her as the smiling face behind the candy bowl in the Student Life Office, Mrs. Polak was also the assistant coach for the varsity girls lacrosse team, co-chair of the Reach Club, an alumni to Connor ’13 and Mckenna ’14, and much more. She stated that her favorite part of the job was “working with Mrs. Skinner, Ms. Barth, and Ms. Fox” because she “couldn’t have gotten through the days without their love and support.” All around campus Mrs. Polak’s presence will be missed: from the Chapel during Morning Meeting to Cartwright’s common room. Her impact on WRA is evident, and we truly wish Mrs. Polak the best with whatever the future holds for her and her family!
