Class of 2013 told to go forth in wisdom and to serve the common good By CARRIE GILPIN

O

n a picture-perfect day, 324 Scarsdale High School seniors strode onto Dean Field at 10 a.m. to the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance,” and joined the assembled faculty, friends and family to sing the national anthem led by the senior ensemble and conductor John Cuk. Scarsdale Board of Education president Elizabeth Guggenheimer, herself an SHS alumna, addressed the class, saying, “To our graduating seniors, you have learned a lot, worked hard and played well, and you deserve our heartfelt congratulations. Scarsdale High School has prepared you to think, know and act in an interdependent world. “Each of you brought your individual personalities, abilities and interests to the school community. Many of you engaged in civ ed, science research, the Alternative School, film study, philosophy, teams, clubs, music, art, newspaper and literary work, Hurricane Sandy relief, cross-cultural experiences and more. Your future includes countless possible roads. You will have many chances for exploration and risk-taking. Bumps are to be expected. So are great moments.” Guggenheimer continued, “As you proceed on your life’s journey, I encourage you — and all Scarsdale alumni — to consider two questions: First, what can I do to make a positive difference now in the communities in which I learn, work and live and the larger world? Second, how do I learn, work and live in a way that sustains the earth and fosters a democratic society for future generations?” Class treasurers Lindsay Root and Jake Gibson gave a humorous introduction for the class advisers, Lauren Barton and Jason Noble, who then addressed the seniors together. First, the two played a tape familiar to all Scarsdale students, of assistant superintendent Linda Purvis calling with notification of a cancellation. This tape, recorded for the graduation by Purvis, said graduation would be cancelled and students would have to come back next year. The audience laughed and clapped, especially since Purvis’s real recordings had been used many times during the seniors’ four years for real weather events and school closings. Barton said the class “had been under a cloud of poor weather” since freshman year’s rainy carnival, thunderstorms at junior olympics, senior year Halloween breakfast after Hurricane Sandy, and rain at the senior prom. “The members of this graduating class have persevered and gained strength from having to navigate through and around the conditions posed by weather and the additional tragedies that have occurred over the last four years. In the face of such challenges, we have witnessed an infinite amount of growth, success and achievement. We know this is the beginning of even brighter and more prosperous days for you,” she said. Noble implored students to “go forward and pursue something you are passionate about,” as he did with teaching music, something that has given him joy his whole life. “I hope that you will seek not just income, a paycheck or a title, but seek something for which you can be content. And do not be afraid to make waves, suggest something different from the status quo, or take a principled stand on an issue for which you feel passion.” Barton asked students to be true to themselves, and in that effort to be self-compassionate as well. “The decisions that you make should be your decisions … ones that you feel

strongly about and hold as your own. You are the only one who needs to feel comfortable with the actions you’ve taken and those you will take, and the thoughts you have and will continue to experience. “There will always be external pressures and the opinions of others — often others who are very close with you and whose values you respect. How you maintain your sense of self and honesty through these challenges will serve you well. Too often we are quick to be overly critical of our own actions and thoughts, questioning whether or not we’ve upheld those values to which we hope to remain true. It’s imperative that in your efforts to be true to yourself, you be as forgiving and understanding with yourself as you would be with others,” she said. Class vice president Celeste DiLauro gave a tribute to all staff, singling out longtime social studies and civic education teacher Neil Ginsberg, who is retiring this spring after 39 years of teaching. “He was always there for his students, and he will be greatly missed,” she said. Class president Rebecca Goldberg was introduced by House representative Madeline Satin, as “someone Ali Whitney who shows pride in SHS and inspires us. She leads fearlessly.” Goldberg gave the class words of farewell, saying, “It would be an understatement to say that the class of 2013 has been through a lot ... whereas it might be an overstatement to say that we stuck together through it all. This is a class that broke into civil war at the prospect of solving the notorious lunch table incident on Halloween, and one that had an awkwardly unsuccessful Senior Cut Day based on our inability to agree. We were a class that divided more frequently than a cell during mitosis ... Many of us belonged to cliques and

many of those cliques had their rivalries… And yet, this year’s seniors had some inarguably unifying moments — some, perhaps, to the administration’s distaste. Senior class spirit literally brought down the soccer stands in support of Scarsdale’s Raiders ... and no one can forget hordes of students dressed head to toe in parkas and ski masks in the middle of march for the sake of a good old game of assassin — cough — marker tag. Then of course, there was that legendary food fight … but I promise, administrators, teachers — I am not condoning that kind of behavior. “In a more respectable light, it was amazing to see the range of students who participated in a very successful class play, and all of those who turned up for a class dinner — both events that were intended to strengthen the camaraderie of the seniors. Not to mention prom, in which our parents and families oohed and ahhed as we dazzled our way down the red carpet,” she said. Goldberg continued, “Even more important, though, than these events was the constant support that the class of 2013 gave to one another during a very difficult time in Scarsdale’s history. Our community faced a number of tragedies over the last few years. Though we had to learn to cope with the losses of loved ones, we will never forget them. Nor can we forget that, when grief was in our midst, our peers, teachers and families were always available for solace, and never turned their backs on one another. Whether their love was worn on a bracelet, or just held in a mutual experience — our classmates could be depended upon for help in a time of pain. We all belong to an inextricably bound community, and despite our undeniable differences, there is a level of

comfort in knowing that there are more than 300 people with whom you will always relate on a certain level … I mean not to reflect on our years here and to transform them into something that they were not. Some of you will look back forlornly and wish that you had befriended other people sooner, but many of you won’t. And that’s OK. When you look back on high school, make your hindsight neither through the lens of fondness or distaste, but through that of honesty — and with that honesty, please acknowledge that there is something of which to be proud. The truth is that this is a point in our life that is all about gaining momentum. Do not let your experience in Scarsdale High School be that which defines you — for if you do you might be disappointed. Let it instead be the floor on which you take your first few baby steps toward improving yourself as an independent and unique person. With that in mind, as you go forth, I implore you to build on that floor. Or improve it. If high school was not all that you thought it could be, join something, get involved. Go forward with a new determination to satisfy who you want to be and what you want to do. Do not fear losing yourself in what you perceive to be definition amongst a club or a group — you will always be unique — but use your special perspective to belong to something, and let that group expand and complement who you are.” Goldberg concluded, “As rapidly as the last four years passed, the next four will be over in a blink. Do your best to build relationships that can transcend the boundaries of high school or college. Those relationships can help you be the best version of yourself, for they will give you support all along the way. Congratulations to the class of 2013. In the immortal words of the philosophical Fat Amy, you crushed it.” Next, the class was addressed by SHS principal Ken Bonamo, who said high school graduation is “a celebration of the purest form of love that we have in human existence,” and said the day was marked by love of parents for children, children for their parents, students for their subjects, teachers and deans and vice versa. “And most importantly, you should look at yourselves and love what you see — an intelligent, curious, responsible person, poised to continue learning in order to take on the challenges of life and of our society. The key to your success in taking on those challenges will be to infuse love into your work, your relationships, and your self-regard. From this love, everything will come.” Bonamo continued, “Love should continue to motivate you as you begin the next chapters of your lives. A love of humanity should motivate your desire to live the motto of non sibi and leave our world better than you find it. A love of learning and of the subject of your choice should help you navigate your college experience. Do indeed study what you love. Do not be afraid of following your heart in this regard. A subject studied solely for the value of the degree in terms of potential salary will lead to a career that will feel like work and work alone. A subject chosen because you are interested in it will lead to work that never feels like a job, and I am fairly certain to a life that is much fuller than one that can be measured in dollars and cents.” After each graduate walked across the stage in cap and gown of the school’s maroon and white colors to receive his or her diploma, superintendent Michael McGill pronounced the seniors graduates, having met the requirements of the State of New York, saying, “Go forth now in wisdom and to serve the common good.”

Edgemont’s Class of 2013 Taddiken’s last remarks; speakers laud community but encourage the individual By DEBBIE ANDERS

A

t a sunny graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 20, the Edgemont senior class listened to some speeches about loyalty, love and the Edgemont they “will hold onto” — and others about taking risks and placing greater value on the individual self. Senior Abhinav Jaiswal welcomed the 139 graduates and their families and friends to the Edgemont quad. He said that when he is asked, “where is Edgemont?” He tells them it is in Scarsdale, but he thinks to himself that Edgemont is a place where everyone is known and where people are treated equally — where “people respect you and demand your respect,” whether they are a wrestling champ, a math whiz, an actor, or a model UN delegate. “Edgemont is wherever we are. So soon, Edgemont will be everywhere.” In her 32d and final commencement remarks, superintendent Nancy Taddiken called Edgemont her home away from home and said it was incredible to think she would not be there after this week. She commended the seniors on their achievements, saying, “We consider ourselves successful — or in the new lingo, ‘highly effective’ — if students surpass their teachers. Many of you have already surpassed us in your wisdom, your knowledge and your experiences,” she said. Acknowledging that the district’s small size enables students, faculty, alumni, and members of the community to all know one another, she encouraged the seniors to stay touch “with the Edgemont that you carry with you” and said that the long term relationships formed here “will serve you well when you need to rely on trusted friends.” Taddiken noted sacrifices made by parents and grandparents of the graduates and referred to Edgemont’s teachers as among the finest educators in the country. The audience applauded heartily. Later, she assured her students, “You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.” She quoted her late husband Spencer Dvorkin, who served on the Edgemont Board of Education more than 20 years ago, who told her, “The greatest gift of all is to love and be loved.” She said she hoped that “Each of you feels as loved as I have felt here in Edgemont because you are — by parents and families, teachers, by the community as a whole. Good luck to all of you, you make Edgemont proud.” There was a standing ovation. In his remarks, principal Devan Ganeshananthan, a cy-

English teacher Michael DeVito

clist, said the independence and exhilaration a child feels during her first time riding a bicycle was like his own test of endurance riding a fixed gear bike, and that both experiences were like the challenges all students face getting to where they are going. When you’re riding a fixed gear bike, Ganeshananthan said, “You have no option other than to ride hard.” He said he hoped the graduates learn to “cherish not just the reward, but the effort that brings you there.” School board president Tom McCormack offered a set of practical tips for graduating seniors. He said they should get acquainted with different people in college, like “the girl down the hall from Arkansas who plays the oboe, or the TA from South Africa who whistles all the time, or the anthropology professor with the weird haircut.” He told kids to seek new experiences. “If the Dalai Lama comes to your college, for heaven’s sake, go meet him.” Find out “what you like or don’t like,” McCormack told them. “If you are a musician, go to a basketball game; if you’re a football fan, go to a choral concert.” “Don’t just be who you were in high school. Be other people too.” McCormack also spoke about resilience in the face of adversity. “Every now and then, life will put you on the ground. Well, get up. In the final analysis, that is the human story.” English teacher Michael DeVito was the faculty speaker. While he admires the beauty, pride and significance of being a part of the Edgemont community, he warns, “We should be careful not to let pride turn into chauvinism or the belief that Edgemont is the only place to have spent the last 12 years. There are many wonderful places,” He recalled the novel “Cat’s Cradle” where the author Kurt Vonnegut challenges the meaningfulness of false or arbitrary groups based on circumstance, ideology or geography —calling such a group a “granfalloon”— and fears a loss of self can result from identifying too closely with a group. “Find people with whom you have a more genuine connection,” DeVito said. “If you wish to find a granfalloon,” he said, referring to the story, “just remove the skin of a toy balloon.” The first class speaker, Carolina Sguerra, relayed to the audience her soccer coach’s advice, “Don’t shoot the ball unless it’s perfect.” For that to happen, and for other scenarios involving risk, stress, setbacks and “the hand we’re dealt,” Sguerra, said, students should remember two words: patience and composure. Those words, she said, have made her a better athlete, daughter, student and friend. Be more patient, have composure, and “you’ll never miss your perfect

shot,” said Sguerra. Finally, Emma Kantor said that she and her classmates had been rushing everywhere their whole lives and experiencing sensory overload and distractions from the next gadget — always videochatting, Facebooking, IM’ing, Instagramming and emailing. Students should remember to recognize “the little moments: the one-shot parallel park, dinner with your family, or a ‘Charlie’ sandwich at Noni’s’ [referring to the popular deli Giannoni’s]. We are a remarkable community with unlimited potential. I am so impressed with who we are and what we are becoming,” she said.
