ELIZABETH, NJ - The Elizabeth School District High held its graduation this past week at Williams Field in Elizabeth. This year the district graduated 1,351 students from its senior class for 2018.
In a letter to the graduating class, Little wrote:
“Congratulations to all my District Senior Peers of Elizabeth High School, Class of 2018! You did it! I’m incredibly proud of each and every one of you. You all encountered many defeats, challenges, and hardships these past 4 years, but today paid it all off! Always remember you have within the strength, courage, and patience to reach for the stars, you can do it you're not too far. Your success is only limited to how far and how big you can dream! Dream on Class of 2018!
Graduation day is finally here, and so now ends your high school career. Always remember the friends you hold dear, and look toward your future without any fear. This is the day you’ve been preparing for since the day you walked through that first classroom door. Now it’s time to say goodbye, and spread your wings - you're ready to fly. So shed a tear and share a smile, be sure to remember all the while, that although it may now be time to move on, today’s memories will last your whole life long.
It’s been a pleasure having peers like you! Thank you for trusting me in helping you, motivating you, encouraging you, advocating for you, and most importantly, reminding you that you have what it takes to become successful in life and to always keep your eyes on the sparrow.
Always remember that our generation plays an important role in shaping tomorrow. We are the heads and not the tails. You can defeat the odds, chase the impossible, and do the unthinkable in any way. That’s how powerful we are, know that I’m rooting for each and every one of you in everything you do.”
