CRANFORD - It was a beautiful day as the members of the Cranford High School Class of 2018 took their places on Memorial Field for the Graduation Ceremony on Thursday night. 

Class President Anna Kalafatis, Principal Mark Cantagallo, Superintendent Dr. Scott Rubin, Board of Education President Kurt Petschow, Jr., Salutatorian Emily Wilson, and Valedictorian Meg Cui each presented their respective speeches before the Tassel Ceremony. 

In his first Graduation Ceremony speech as Superintendent, Dr. Rubin recalled being in the stands for last year's ceremony after being appointed to the position for the 2017-18 school year. Dr. Rubin described Cranford as a "model community," and mentioned that he has learned that there is nothing the community won't do for the better of its kids. He added that he has never had the pleasure of working with such a passionate and hard-working Board of Education.

Rubin also went on to say how he quickly noticed that residents "puff out their chests" when they say that they are from Cranford, and finds himself proudly doing so now too. 

"Our kids are amazing and our district is amazing," said Principal Cantagallo following the ceremony. "These kids are so dedicated to being successful. When you heard the speeches that the students made, you can tell that they are intelligent students who are caring, and really understand what it means to work hard. It is absolutely amazing to me."
