Newcomb The Newcomb Central School Class of 2013 is a unique mixture of local and international students without a traditional valedictorian and salutatorian.
All are expecting to move on after the school year.
Local seniors are Ashley Miller, Justin Viele, and Frank Nye, according to NCS Guidance Counselor Kathy Markwica. Miller and Viele will be attending SUNY Adirondack in the fall. Nye, who graduated with with a Regents Diploma after successfully completely the culinary arts program at BOCES, will be going to Paul Smith’s College.
The international students are Bryton Chikukwa, of Zimbabwe; Xuan Zhao, of China; Petar Przuljevic, of Serbia; and Warisara Weerasorn, of Thailand. If they pass the Regents tests in U.S. History, English and Physics, they will graduate. Maria Piva, of Italy, is also a senior and will not be graduating, as she expected to get her diploma after she returns home.
