CROTON-ON-THE-HUDSON, N.Y. -- The members of Croton-Harmon High School’s Class of 2015 cheered enthusiastically for one another as they officially graduated on June 24.

Student leaders and administrators offered inspiring words to the graduates, before the students collected their diplomas from Board of Education President Giuseppina Miller.

Class President William Livingston discussed his personal struggle with fitting in. “I spent 14 years of my life running from the person I wanted to be,” he said. “We have all come so far on our own paths.”

Superintendent of Schools Edward Fuhrman echoed Livingston’s sentiments and encouraged the graduates to believe in themselves. “Seek extraordinary accomplishments knowing others support you,” he said. “Be courageous, Class of 2015.”

Salutatorian Emily Grossman told her peers, “Now is the time to be the person you always wanted to be. No one is stopping you.” Principal Alan Capasso reminded students, “The only constant in this world is change,” he reminded them, and encouraging the graduates to regularly consider their lives, priorities, and mistakes. 

“Unless you take the time to periodically reflect, you won’t know what you are capable of,” he said. “Accept, or better yet, embrace change. Take risks.”

Valedictorian Caroline Barnes paused to take a selfie with the entire class before her address. “Let’s hold onto the importance of such an event,” she said. Barnes also offered advice to the school’s younger students: “Keep yourselves in the present and find ways to enjoy every moment you have.”
