Westborough – Thunderstorms forecast for June 2 didn’t occur, so the Westborough High School (WHS) class of 2018 enjoyed their graduation ceremony outdoors on the athletic field as planned. There, 268 diplomas were presented.
Superintendent Amber Block encouraged the graduates to develop a forgiving nature as they meet new acquaintances who might become best friends. Inspired by the book “The Power of Moments,” Principal Brian Callaghan cited examples of how the graduates had maximized peaks and expressed confidence they’re prepared to minimize pits in their upcoming transitions. School Committee Chair Sara Dullea reminisced about her memorable encounters with the graduates.
Valedictorian Jayati Anand discussed how her classmates’ experiences together will help them as they advance to their next stage of life. The ceremony concluded with Class President Elizabeth Hopkinson continuing her leadership role by inviting graduates to stand and turn the tassels to the other side of their caps.
Scholarships totaling over $120,000 were awarded. Music was provided by the WHS Band conducted by Evan Doyle, and the Senior Choral Union under the direction of Alyson Greer Espinosa.
