The talents of Natalie Daise are well known on the Spartanburg Day School campus. As a visiting artist, her impactful performance art and storytelling has impacted many students through the years, and now, as the artist behind the newest visual arts exhibit hanging in the Mildred Harrison Dent Fine Arts Center Gallery, her passion for storytelling is reaching a broader audience.
Since before there was a Spartanburg Day School, co-founder Fred Dent saw its mission clearly. For more than 60 years, he was an unwavering champion and sage counselor, remaining very much involved in the life of the school until his death Tuesday afternoon at age 97.
On the front lawn of Spartanburg Day School Monday, hundreds of flags waved in the breeze. Military vehicles and their drivers – uniformed veterans – greeted curious students from preschool to high school for most of the morning, following a meaningful all-school Veterans Day assembly honoring the men and women of the armed forces.

Spartanburg Day School senior Ellie Toler is one of approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program, according to a release by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).
The first exhibit of 2019-20 is making its mark on the Mildred Harrison Dent Fine Arts Gallery. "Mark Makers" is a selection of works by local artists Linda Capracotta and Claire Louka and is reflective of the drive an artist has to express an idea through the act of making marks.
