Hayeck asked,”How will you remember high school?”

Ye said,” meaningful engagement will be a part of each of our journeys in the coming years.”



And Patel reminded the class that they hadn’t waited until adulthood to strive for greatness.

 

Principal George Alexis delivered the Commencement Address and said,”No matter how fast the world changes or how far you travel, your connection to Watchung Hills will remain strong. You’ve set new standards of excellence in the classroom, on the stage, and in the courts and fields. But you have also learned lessons in empathy and integrity as you’ve strengthened our school’s commitment to service. So this morning as you reflect on the past and peer into the future, embrace this moment, and wherever you go, hold close the timeless values of honesty, resilience, and humility.”

Superintendent Elizabeth Jewett presented the Class of 2018 and WHRHS Board of Education president Peter Fallon accepted the Class of 2018 and said,” take the time to find your passion.”

And then it was time:

The Class of 2018 is a class of 563.
