Algonquin Regional High School’s graduation ceremony took place yesterday. While I’m sharing those details, I’ll also share some from Assabet’s and St. Mark’s graduations.
Sunday morning was a hot one to hold a graduation ceremony on the football field. But based on the video and pics, even the humidity didn’t appear to dampen the spirits of the Class of 2021.
Northborough Cable Access streamed the event live for those who couldn’t attend.
Using an anecdote about Albert Einstein, Superintendent Gregory Martineau offered reassurance to the students who didn’t know where they were headed next year.
Class President David Gillingham lauded his class for persevering through the pandemic, helping each other, and refusing to forfeit joy. He told them that while they shouldn’t live in the past, they shouldn’t leave it behind. He encouraged them to keep in touch with teachers and turn high school friends into life-long ones.
Other highlights included Algonquin Principal Sean Bevan’s address and Senior Class Essayists Fabina Karim and Jake Clancy and. You can watch the full ceremony here.
