Class of 2014 Graduates Livingston High School

June 21, 2014 at 4:58 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - On the Livingston High School (LHS) turf, in a sea of green decorated caps, 464 Livingston students received high school diplomas on Friday. Hundreds of family members and friends applauded their graduates as students and teachers gave speeches congratulating the class and advising them on the years to come.

“There are places I’ll remember all my life, though some have changed,” Class Officer Chase Madorsky quoted as he welcomed his graduating class. “Much has changed but our memories have only grown.” 

According to LHS Principal Marc Stern, this class more than others has overcome drastic changes including an exceeding number of snow days, experiments with block scheduling and other obstacles that made this year’s graduation a “major milestone.”

Madorsky applauded his class for being the “unofficial second mascot,” calling the Class of 2014 the "guinea pig." He said his classmates adapted and strived and thrived through school spirit, rather than letting adversity get them down. Madorsky shared his hope that his peers would continue to “shake it off and step it up” as they move through the next chapter of their lives.

“It was an honor to be able to kick off graduation,” Madorsky said. “It was a pleasure to be able to look out at my class one more time and set the tone for the rest of the night.”

Valedictorian Kevin Kwok shared a similar feeling about his graduating class, encouraging them to create their own happy endings. Quoting Walt Disney, Kwok vowed that each of their dreams could come true if only they find the courage to pursue them.

Class of 2014 Officers Matthew Levey, Madorsky, Matthew Reuter and Samantha Waldenberg presented diplomas to their peers, followed by the tradition moving of the tassels. Caps filled the air as the new college freshmen cheered for the end of their high school careers.

Stern assured his students that, much like the difficult winter they endured this year, the snow will always melt and brighter days will follow. After commencement, family members stormed the turf to congratulate their graduates.

“I just want to say how proud I am of Marni and how great of a role model she is to me,” Austin Siegel said of his older sister. “I love her and will miss her so much next year.”
