— “Our lives are going to be so much bigger that we could possibly plan,” Galusha said. “You haven’t heard the last of the Class of 2012.”

Superintendent Timothy Farrell delivered the ceremony’s closing remarks. He started by honoring Brian O’Conner for 10 years of service on the School Board, and Lester Sternin, who served on the board for 20 years. Sternin is retiring from his position at the end of this month. While Sternin was not able to make it to the ceremony, Farrell presented his daughter, Ronnie Silver, with a plaque commemorating his years of service.

Farrell had only a few words for the seniors. He said they should use the talents they have, take the time to discover new ones, to always believe in themselves and what they do matters.

The graduation ceremony also featured performances by the school concert band and senior chorus.
