When I initially covered graduating classes of 2016 from Southborough, I was missing some information. I finally have it all, plus video of the ceremony. (Scroll down for that.)

Algonquin Regional High School shared its list of 142 Southborough graduates. Click on the list (right) to check for names you know.

A check of that list reveals that one of the two valedictorians (Riley Casey), the Class Essayist (Daniel Fier), and the Class President (Natalie Finn) all hail from our small town. (Not bad, considering our students made up less than 40% of the 364 student class.)

The Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School (AMSA) also shared its list of recent grads. Here are the names from Southborough. They included the following from Southborough: Benjamin Robinson, Panav Setia, Prashant Singh, Alexandra Ryan, John Hulton, Amelia Kalagher, and Jaedyn Lee.

I also followed up with organizations that promoted their scholarships on the blog. Here are the details on Southborough recipients.

Southborough Scholarship Committee:

Awards were granted to nine residents. From Algonquin: Dillon Ford, Brian Keefe, Troy Fruneaux, Victoria Lagasse, Alex Osetek and Kendall Sweeney, and Anne Campbell. Awards also went to John Hulton from AMSA and Stephen Palecki from St. John’s High School.

Town Selectmen Dan Kolenda and Brian Shea also attended to honor the recipients.

Southborough Gardeners:

Algonquin Regional High School graduating seniors and Southborough residents Connor Black and Gillian Moore are recipients of our 2016 scholarship in the amount of $1000 each. Connor will be attending The University of Vermont, honors program, in the school of Environmental and Natural Resources. Gillian will be attending Middlebury College majoring in Environmental Studies with a Chemistry concentration.

Now, enjoy the video of Algonquin’s June 5th ceremony by Northborough Cable Access. (It reveals a mistake in my earlier post. Turns out that Fier and a friend sang the theme from Friends.)

Updated (6/16/16 12:35 pm): I just received the list of AMSA grads from town.
