WARREN, NJ - Nothing but blue skies and sunshine greeted the Class of 2015 at Watchung Hills Regional High School's 58th commencement this morning.

Pecoraro said," make memories that stay with you for the rest of your lives. Your journey should not be measured in miles but in the memories you made along the way."

Principal George Alexis, WHRHS Class of 1984, delivered the commencement address. He said," this is your school and you will always have a home at Watchung Hills." Superintendent Elizabeth Jewett presented the class and likened Watchung Hills to a tall proud shining city on a hill for other communities to emulate.

Board of Education Vice President Dr. Greg Przybylski accepted the class and remarked that many of the graduates may be reflecting on the last four years thinking like the line in the Grateful Dead song Truckin', "what a long strange trip it's been." He asked the graduates to remember their ABC's- advocacy, bravery, and compassion.

The ceremony can be viewed in its entirety at

Dr. Przybylski and Director of Human Resources, Beth Scheiderman presented diplomas to their own children.
