Sherman, too, credited the school with preparing students well for the road ahead, but emphasized how much his fellow classmates would be missed.
"Congratulations to all of you for sticking through 13 years of learning, and I wish each of you the best of luck with your young, brilliant future." said Sherman. "I know we've been groomed for success."
