Edgemont High School graduation was moved inside on Thursday night June 23rd when stormy weather prevented the traditional outdoor ceremony. The 144 graduating seniors were greeted by classmate Adam Asher, followed by comments from school principal, Barry Friedman. Gerald Stoughton delivered remarks on behalf of the Board of Education and faculty member Dr. Ken Rosenberg was chosen by the senior class to speak.
Headed for NYU in the fall, Justin Arnold,, a.k.a. Danny Zuko, gave parting remarks to his class and Senior Class Officer Jeremy Stern, who plans to attend Washington University in St. Louis spoke as well. Arnold spoke of the place Edgemont will hold in his heart, saying, "Edgemont is not where we grew up, heck it’s not even it’s own town. Edgemont is us. And each of us brings it to where ever we may be in the fall, whether that be New York, Hong Kong, California, or our own backyards. The last 18 years of our lives have been walking through doors to Edgemont, and the rest of the years of our lives will be bringing parts of it with us, through new doors, to the real world."
With that, School Superintendent Nancy L. Taddiken presented the diplomas and the Class f 2011 marched off into a bright future.
