PARSIPPANY, NJ - On June 21st, the class of 2018 of Parsippany Hills High School lined up in blue and black for the distribution of diplomas, ready to make their last exit. 278 Seniors sat on their prominent football field smiling up to loved ones on the bleachers, where they spent most of their Friday nights cheering for their football team. Memorable moments of the past four years were shared in the speeches of Salutatorian, Rakshay Kanthadai, who will be attending the Rutgers honors program and Valedictorian, Karoline Xiong, who will be attending Duke University. The two expressed similar memories of the past four years varying from sleepless nights studying for a big test, to dancing on prom night. Ms. Xiong expressed that throughout everything that her class has been through, they grew together as a family, but most importantly, as Vikings.

Out of the 278 students, 54 graduated as national honors society students. The students who graduated with cords were inducted to societies varying from Science NHS and diverse language societies, to National Business HS and Musical HS. The hard work and dedication of all the students was recognized by the following speeches of Principal Mr. DiSanto, Superintendent Dr. Barbara Sargent, and board of education member Mrs. Judy Mayer. Mayor Michael Soriano also made an appearance to support the class of 2018.

With the class of 2018 making their last appearance, three honorable staff members are also saying their last goodbyes and will be entering retirement. Parsippany Hills shows their gratitude towards the following: Mr. Ordway, Mr. Hyun, and Nurse Walker.

Congratulations to Parsippany Hills High Schools’ class of 2018. TAPInto Parsippany wishes you the best in your future endeavors.
