Southborough Wicked Local covered ARHS’ ceremony:
While she started her speech Sunday afternoon at Algonquin Regional High School’s graduation with a lesson from biology class, Class President Emily Lowe spoke of the brain, heart, hands and feet in “non-scientific” terms. The brain is to remember the past, hearts to know right from wrong, hands for service and feet represent a journey, she said. “Know that life is not a one-way street,” Lowe told her fellow graduates. “It is never too late to make a U-turn and come back for help. Our footprints have made lasting impressions as we have traveled down the road of life. But like all the lessons we’ve learned throughout this journey, the paths that brought us here today shouldn’t be forgotten as we head into the future.” Lowe was joined by 350 fellow graduates who marched into the gymnasium to Edward Elgar’s “Pomp and Circumstance” was performed by the school’s symphonic band.

Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School used their website to congratulate their recent graduates:
Four years ago, they were timid, quiet, uncertain of their future, and anxious about making new friends. Now they are young men and women with a goal, a clear path,and a solid foundation for success, whether it be college or career. They have friends from a plethora of communities, and they left as a cohesive unit, promising to stay in touch forever. We present our 2015 graduating class…..with best wishes and congratulations fo all!
