NEWTON, NJ—Surrounded by their friends, families and teachers, the class of 2017, made up of 181 students, celebrated their graduation on Monday night.  Due to the rainy conditions, the graduation was held inside. Newton High School has only had a total of five inside graduations over the past 15 years.

After the graduates processed in with the teachers and Board of Education members, the Alma Mater and the National Anthem were sung by graduating members of the Newton High School Honors Choir.

Class President, Lisa Anwar Qarmout gave the welcome speech, followed by Miruna Muresan, Liam Oakes, and Julia Nehrings, who each gave an honorary essay to their fellow classmates, families, and friends.

Jeff Waldron, the Principal at Newton High School opened the graduation by acknowledging those who will be retiring this year: Jeff Willis, a security monitor, Wendy Whipple, the teacher librarian for the past 17 years at Newton, and Kurt Walton, who has been in the Newton district for 20 years.

Four students were recognized for the service they will be giving by serving their country in the Armed Forces. Two young men will be joining the Marines, one will be joining the Army and one in the National Guard.

A moment of silence was given for Kellie Burns, who died unexpectedly on July 1, 2016 at the age of 17. Burns was a junior at Newton High School and was with her graduating class in spirit on Monday.

Waldron then acknowledged the Salutatorian, Miruna Christina Muresan and Valedictorian, Michael Patrick Burke, who were awarded medals by their guidance counselors. The Class of 2017 was then presented to Superintendent Dr. G Kennedy Greene as well as the Board of Education members and all the graduating seniors’ families and friends that were present.

The quote that the Class of 2017 chose was “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths,” by Walt Disney.

Waldron address the Class of 2017’s quote by telling the graduates that “as each student is moving forward and creating change, I would like to remind each one of them to focus on the question being asked and not just finding out the solution because that is what curious people do when they are faced with a problem, the first thing they do is ask questions to find a solution, but they must ask the right question in order to come up with the correct solution to a problem.”

Dr. Greene spoke to the graduates saying that the theme they chose, “always forward” or “semper deinceps” in Latin is “an intriguing one as it is used famously as a military call to action….so I say to you the Class of 2017, take the knowledge, skills, and character that you developed here in dear old Newton and use them as a foundation and change the world.”

Junior Class Advisor Jennifer Coffey and Senior Class Advisor Brian Bennington read off the names of the graduates as Board of Education President Stella Dunn and Board of Education Vice President Jessica Egner handed out the diplomas.

Kathryn Van Orden and Willie Little kindly asked that on behalf of the Class of 2017, all applause be held until all the graduates have received their diplomas..
