Meera Clark, Class of 2011
“I can say with confidence that my greatest strength is my network. As I’ve reached towards others to invite them into my world, I’ve felt them similarly reaching towards me, eager to establish connection through a shared commitment to curiosity and compassion. As you all carve your own paths in the real world, I encourage you to similarly curate dynamic and diverse communities wherever you go.”
Country Day was thrilled to welcome Meera Clark ’11, back on campus to speak to the senior class at the 31st Senior Convocation. Her outstanding achievements, emphasis on community, and ability to cultivate connections were some of the reasons she was chosen to address the Class of 2023.
After graduating from Country Day, Meera went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Management Science and Engineering with a focus on Entrepreneurship from Stanford University. Meera has wasted little time putting together an impressive resume highlighted by her recognition last year as one of Forbes 30 under 30, and Business Insiders 55 Investors to Watch and serves as Board Director of Stanford’s Professionals in Finance. Meera is currently an early-stage investor at Redpoint Ventures in San Francisco, California.
Country Day graduated its first senior class in 1962 with 15 students and began Senior Convocation in 1991 to mark the school’s 53rd anniversary year. The tradition has continued as a way to officially mark the start of senior year, with an emphasis on the senior journey. On August 19, parents, teachers, and administrators celebrated the members of the Class of 2023 at this year’s ceremony.
"From a teacher’s perspective, Meera was a very rewarding student," wrote Beatrice Eldredge, Meera’s former Country Day advisor on her college recommendation. "She is very intelligent, polite, motivated, hardworking, and far reaching. When you teach Meera, you will find it a pleasure to give her your best and she will give you her best."
The Country Day community is proud of Meera and honored to have had her back on campus. She appreciates the value of connection, and expressed the power of community to our senior class as they embark on their final journey as Country Day students.
