Pictures and Brief by Maya Shah and Ben Shapiro, Beats Editor and News Editor

After enduring a one-hour delay to accommodate for inclimate weather, the Class of 2022’s graduation took place at Teamer Field on Tuesday, June 7. The ceremony commenced with brief words from School Principal Amy Meisinger, Superintendent Richard Gusick and School Board President Roberta Hotinski. 

Senior Class Vice President Linc Zdancewicz followed the administrators and offered wise words of reflection to his fellow classmates in his speech entitled “The Class of 2022 in Three Words.”

Next to take the stage was the musical act composed of seniors Haley Godfrey, Aaron Grossman and Evelyn Walker. The trio performed the number “Goodbye” from the movie “Catch Me if You Can.”

Offering his reflections in the form of poetry, senior Tyler Rhatican performed his piece “The New Present” full of clever rhymes hidden within an emotional sendoff. 

Centering on a metaphor from her Computer Science class, senior Hannah Zhang was next to take the podium with her speech entitled “Playing Our Cards Right.” Zhang paused in the middle of her speech to take a selfie with the crowd, a tribute to her days as a student-photographer. 

After administrators took turns calling each student’s name, the seniors celebrated their final moments as high schoolers with the age-old tradition of throwing their caps in the air.
