Photos: Lakeland High School Graduation


WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - The Lakeland High School Class of 2017 graduated Saturday, June 24, at the Westchester County Center in White Plains.

‘We all have aspirations, but my message to you, Lakeland High School, is to dream big, because the world isn’t getting smaller and we need as many hard-working intellectuals to bring it back to its feet. Class of 2017, find your path in life, make mistakes, take risks—do whatever you need to do to find your purpose. Today, we are high school graduates. Tomorrow, we will be something bigger.’
–Salutatorian Ashley Jimenez
Lakeland High School

‘Know the difference between getting something done and completing something with pride. You will never regret going the extra mile. Get wrapped up in moments, not a Netflix series. Big games and friend hangouts cannot be paused and resumed whenever we please.’
–Valedictorian Kathryn Schore
Lakeland High School

Are We All Connected?

A question that has long plagued me is whether we, as a species, have evolved in our consciousness of our interconnectedness to one another.

Influential philosophers, writers, economists and politicians have debated whether that should be our focus in the first place. Writers such as Ayn Rand (“The Fountainhead”) and her followers have suggested that our center of attention should ...

This special date was chosen because it is the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the adored children’s author. That ...

Hold Con Edison Accountable

March 14, 2018

To the editor,

I am writing to suggest that my fellow residents assist in holding Con Edison responsible for its disastrous handling of these storms and, further, to support steps that would ensure these now common shortcomings are not repeated.

Like too many here, I, my wife and three children ages 5, 3, and 8 months have been without power for more than a week. That we could live within ...
