Eldred Central School graduates 37 STORY AND PHOTOS BY MARGARET BRUETSCH

ELDRED — Persistence and the ability to fall back on a strong community were just a few things the newly minted Eldred Class of 2017 was urged to remember at its graduation Saturday. “Seven point three billion. That’s approximately how many people exist on Planet Earth. 300. That’s about how many people go to Eldred School,” Salutatorian Alyssa McGrail said in her welcome speech discussing the idea that everyone wants to leave a legacy behind. “Even if people don’t remember me 10 years from now ... my life isn’t pointless and neither is yours. Life isn’t all about leaving a giant legacy behind, it’s about all the great things you did while you were alive. It’s about investing in people.” McGrail emphasized that you don’t need to be famous to make a difference in the life of someone else, and highlighted the staff of ECS who went out of their way to invest in her specifically – Tammi, a janitor who always gave McGrail a hug and Anthony, a security guard who works tirelessly to keep the students and staff safe. Superintendent Robert M. Dufour urged the academically accomplished class to

Don’t give into pessimism. Go out there, spread your wings, soar among mountains and clouds and lead a truly successful life.” Commencement speaker and Eldred Class of 1980

graduate Charles Kuck urged students to remember four key ideas: failure, success, justice and mercy. Kuck, an immigration lawyer and managing partner of Kuck Immigration Partners LLC is currently the Co-Chair of the Atlanta Welcoming America Committee and Adjunct Professor of Law at Emory Law School. He also previously served as the National President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “What you will learn is that the people you know here will be with you for the rest of

your lives,” Kuck said. “Growing up here is an extraordinary experience no one else you go to college with will have.” Kuck encouraged the class to carry their failures, celebrate their success with those who supported them, and to remember the ideas of justice and mercy. “Justice is only as good as the justice we give to others. It’s taught me to understand that we all come from very humble circumstances,” Kuck said. “You have an obligation to speak out for justice. Mercy

Eldred alumni Charles Kuck tells graduates how lucky they are to attend a school where their teachers and community care about their individual accomplishments. “If you can dream it, you can become it, because you graduated from the greatest of all schools. Congratulations Class of 2017!” Kuck said.

is its companion ... it is a powerful tool we can use every day. You never shortchange yourself or become less of a person for having mercy.” Valedictorian Samantha Laput, whose sister Bailey is also a 2017 graduate and, according to Samantha, one of the best things about ECS, reminisced about all the class had gone through together. From being kindergarteners unable to color inside the lines, to playground fights between the Clan of Sticks and the Clan of Rocks, Laput reminded her classmates that they have always had each other. “You don’t have to be born a

Yellowjacket to be a Yellowjacket. Our hive is big enough for everyone,” Laput said acknowledging classmates who became an essential part of the Class of 2017 after leaving the Homestead School or homeschooling. “This time we are not jumping from one fishbowl to the next. We are being dumped in the ocean.” Laput urged her fellow classmates to remember that change may come, but that even if things don’t change for the better they will always have their community behind them. “What will I tell my children?” Laput mused. “I will tell them that I grew up in Sullivan County on the Delaware River. On graduation day, my class looked just as fierce as the Yellowjacket. To my classmates, if you’re going to fall, fall back on your community.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 4G

Fallsburg celebrates 78 all-stars STORY AND PHOTOS BY JOSEPH ABRAHAM

FALLSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Each schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduation is unique, but Fallsburg High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s themed graduations are always something special. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme was superheroes, and this year it was all-stars. Principal Michael Williams started off the ceremony, reminiscing on the first time

he saw the Class of 2017 when they entered the junior/senior high school as seventh graders. Williams noticed they looked scared, but he told them, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śhold on its going to go by very quickly.â&#x20AC;? And that day arrived last Sunday, when family and friends gathered in the JSHS Auditorium to celebrate the graduation of the classâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 78 allstars.

The Class of 2017 enters the auditorium. The best friend duo of Olav Peterson Langeland and Pu â&#x20AC;&#x153;Samâ&#x20AC;? Zheng is the Class of 2017â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively. Langeland will attend Vassar College and major in history, while Zheng will study Biology at Buffalo University. Both of their speeches thoroughly entertained the audience. Zheng, who came to Fallsburg from China four years ago, went first. He began his speech by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, was a mysterious planet named Fallsburg ...â&#x20AC;? Zheng went on to praise the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diversity, acknowledging that he learned a lot from Fallsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s populous, one thing being that not everyone shares the same ideals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The true purpose of cultural diversity is to teach how to respect others,â&#x20AC;? he said. If we want to get respect from other people, we must first tolerate the differences.â&#x20AC;?

Senior Counselor Joe Levner, left, led the awards and scholarships part of the ceremony. Here he poses for a photo with Salutatorian Pu â&#x20AC;&#x153;Samâ&#x20AC;? Zheng after it was announced which awards/scholarships he earned.

Zheng concluded by explaining that everyone has challenges but the differences lie in their attitude when challenged. Langeland, the first in his family to attend college, had a unique analogy for the audience on what the Class of 2017 will experience after graduation. He described the daily routine of walking his dog, and how one day he had a spot on his glasses and took them off. Without his glasses, things were initially uncomfortable. Langeland likened this to the Class of 2017 stepping out into the world, and how things will be different. While the next chapter of their lives would at first be uncomfortable, Langeland noted how in no time,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;Ś that blurriness will be crystal clear.â&#x20AC;? Shortly after, several seniors were recognized as awards and scholarships were given. Class Advisor Brianne Beebe-Kauth announced the winners of one of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prestigious awards, the

Howard T. Scholefield Citizenship Award. The recipients of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award were Rebecca Budrock and Roberto Matamoros Mejia. After the announcement of the citizenship award winners, Superintendent Dr. Ivan Katz wished the Class of 2017 the best, before transitioning into the announcement of the newest member of the Fallsburg Central School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of Fame, an annual tradition started five years ago. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inductee was World War II veteran Robert â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bobâ&#x20AC;? Longo, who will turn 96 in August. He was an art teacher at Fallsburg for 35 years (1949-1984). Longo gave a short speech, then turned to the graduates and said that he was happy to serve the country, with one of the reasons being because of young people like them. Longo received a standing ovation and shortly after, diplomas were given and the Class of 2017 were officially Fallsburg alumni.

HONESDALE, PA – Graduation season kicked off early across the Delaware River in Honesdale, PA, as 195 students received their diplomas on Saturday, June 17. Class President Nichole Freiermuth led off the ceremony’s student speakers, delivering an address about the positive aspects of her time as one of Honesdale’s Hornets. “I certainly would not have been able to make it through high school as successfully as I did without the amazing faculty that we have here,” said Freiermuth. “They truly go above and beyond, and such a characteristic isn’t always easy to find in people.” Salutatorian Emily Ritter followed with a speech entitled “Things,” the theme of which explored the complexities we all face in our modern lives. “No matter where you are going, there are some things you will need – not your phone, fancy clothes, or even your precious Netflix, but rather feelings, mindsets and ideals,” said Ritter. Institutional awards to Honesdale students from colleges and universities totaled nearly four million dollars, while local and regional awards given to Honesdale students totaled nearly $125,000. Out of 195 students, 14 graduated Summa Cum Laude, having received a GPA of 4.0 or higher. Twelve Honesdale Hornets will be entering the armed services to serve their country and their community. “The world that these students live in is different than

the one we grew up in, but let’s be reminded it is a world that we now share with them,” said Superintendent Gregory Frigoletto. “Today’s world is one of instantaneous information and constantly evolving communications technologies.” Superintendent Frigoletto praised emerging communication technologies as the reason for today’s generation being more accepting of each other and more connected to the world around them, but also warned of its drawbacks. “I urge the graduates here today to stop and reflect,” said Frigoletto. “Over time there has become a fullblown expectation – almost an entitlement – that responses and information be instantaneous. I fear it’s possible that kids today may actually wonder ‘who needs patience?’” said Frigoletto.

LIVINGSTON MANOR CENTRAL SCHOOL

Livingston Manor graduates 35 STORY AND PHOTOS BY JEANNE SAGER

LIVINGSTON MANOR — It could be said that graduations are a magical time – for the graduates, their families,

Marissa Gennaro smiles after exiting the gym.

and the school staff that helped get them there. But at Livingston Manor Central School, folks took it literally this year. In a test of seeing is believing, Principal Sandra Johnson sent Band Director Dan Smith to a spot front and center in the gymnasium, then asked a group of pre-selected seniors to use just two fingers each to lift their soonto-be former teacher into the air. It didn't work. But then she asked again, and suddenly Smith was letting out an “ohhhh,” as the same kids put forth the same effort to hoist him high into the air. “If one believes they can accomplish something with the help of others... they will," Johnson said, bidding students to “please remember this event.” Then came Salutatorian Jeremy Johaneman's magic tricks. Asking junior prom

king and graduation attendant – Evan Madison – to come to the front of the audience, Johaneman pulled out a fresh deck of cards. Asking Madison to fan them out, Johaneman spoke of the ace of spades, the card that to him represents the culmination of a high school career. Aces are, after all, the most valuable in a deck. And as he explained, the spade represents a shovel. “Our years attending Livingston Manor was our shovel. We used our shovel to build a foundation,” he noted. It's a foundation that Valedictorian Khristopher DiBartolo said he'll never forget. Asked what he'll miss most about LMCS, he spoke simply and from the heart. “Good friends and great teachers.” That's what magic is made of.

Dylan Batzel smiles up at a stream of confetti let loose by a confetti gun.

Sullivan County BOCES hosts annual commencement

LIBERTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sullivan County BOCES held its annual commencement ceremony on Friday, June 9, at the Rubin Pollack Education Center. Family, friends, teachers, and school administrators came together to honor twenty-six graduates for their educational achievements. Acting CEO/Deputy District Superintendent, Susan Schmidt opened the ceremony with welcoming remarks and spoke about how each student has taken a different journey and the lessons they have learned over the years to get to this milestone. She closed with a simple message, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tomorrow is the beginning of anything you want.â&#x20AC;? Jay Quaintance, Interim President of SUNY Sullivan was the keynote speaker for the ceremony. Mr. Quaintance spoke about his educational journey that was similar to the challenges of most of the graduates. The difference was, they were completing high school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he dropped out of school. Mr. Quaintance went on to tell the graduates about what he had to go through until he met the one teacher to help him get on the right path and change his life. He ended with words of advice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find your inner voice it will help drive you to reach your goals on your own terms. Do the best you can, but do in your own way and flow your dreams.â&#x20AC;? Class speaker, Daniel Acton, Monticello Central School, started his speech

This quote was one of the driving forces behind Daniel Actonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transformation towards success. He spoke of his actions that lead him to BOCES and how his Spanish teacher inspired him to learn. At that point, Daniel decided that no one was going to stop him and that he would succeed and reach his goal of becoming an Army combat engineer. This August Daniel leaves for basic training. According to Daniel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing can actually stop you just slow you down.â&#x20AC;? IN ADDITION TO THE STUDENTSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; DIPLOMAS, THE FOLLOWING AWARDS WERE PRESENTED:

Liberty High School graduates 90 STORY AND PHOTOS BY MATT SHORTALL

LIBERTY — It was a day for celebration as 90 students received their high school diplomas on Saturday. It was an occasion for celebrating the achievements of the past, and looking forward to the future with positivity and optimism. The day’s speakers offered a treasure trove of advice to the graduating class that will hopefully guide them forward into the next chapter of their lives. “Today more than ever, I believe we need to be informed, involved and to speak up respectfully,” said high school Principal Jack Strassman. Mrs. Elaine Grossinger Etess, alumni of the Liberty Class of 1945, heiress of the famed Grossinger Resort, former Board of Education president, and the most recent Wall of Fame inductee, delivered a special address to the graduating class of 2017. “When we were building ‘the new school,’ as we called it then, the faculty and administrators did a superb job,” said Grossinger Etess. “You – our graduates – are a product of that endeavor. The

school was built and we reached our goals. Now you – our graduates – must make up your minds about how you are going to continue the quest for excellence and for the sake of future generations.” Grossinger-Etess urged graduates to embrace volunteerism,“Select an area of community service that appeals to you, and commit yourself to doing it. Do not say ‘I don’t have the time,’ – You do. “Do not be fearful of the unknown,” Grossinger Etess continued. “Often the challenge of new experience can make you a stronger person, better able to handle the complexities of life.” The same sentiments about seizing life’s opportunities were echoed by class valedictorian, Leanna Zilles. “There’s no foolproof formula for success in life. We instead have to face adversity to the best of our ability with all the strength and determination that we have.” Zilles challenged her fellow classmates to greet the next chapter of their lives with courage, character and competence.

Ninety high school students walked into the Liberty High School’s gymnasium on Saturday and they all walked out as high school graduates.

Sullivan West salutes 76 graduates STORY AND PHOTOS BY RICHARD A. ROSS

LAKE HUNTINGTON — Sullivan West’s graduation ceremony might well have been named the “Spirit of 76” for the number of remarkable young men and women who closed out their high school careers on a gorgeous June 24. Striding in to the strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” stirringly played by the High School Band under the direction of Ross Reynolds, the seniors took to the risers amidst a flurry of smiles, photos, waves and a few tears. Class Treasurer Jackson Haberli led the Pledge of Allegiance, which was followed by the band’s playing of the National Anthem.

The lovely musical prelude continued with the Senior High School’s moving rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” conducted by Choral Music teacher Jerry Hoch. Superintendent Dr. Nancy M. Hackett welcomed everyone and turning to the seniors she offered them a key word to ponder on their forthcoming respective journeys. That word was “believe.” Dr. Hackett emphasized that by reaching this stage of accomplishment, the seniors had already marshaled belief in themselves, bolstered by the affirming belief imparted by their teachers, families, coaches and friends. “You set your goals and you accomplished them,” she

Senior Class Secretary Farrah Flynn is all smiles after ascending the risers during the Processional.

said, referencing this milestone occasion as she reminded the students that whatever they set their minds to, “you can do it if you believe in yourselves.” High School Principal Mark Plescia thanked all that had helped to make the graduation ceremony possible. Referencing the Class of 2017’s accomplishments he noted that just shy of $1.3 million had been awarded to Sullivan West students in local and college-based scholarships while 46 percent of the graduates had marshaled a GPA of 85 percent or better. Athletically the class added to the collection of championship banners. The seniors got to decorate their caps, which were on display in the lobby. It was a project suggested by and orchestrated by Class Secretary Farrah Flynn. Plescia noted that the seniors had experienced great success, which does not come easily. Challenged along the way the students’ desire to succeed motivated them. Realistically noting that more challenges lay ahead, Plescia stressed the need to continue to persevere.

Sullivan West Superintendent Dr. Nancy Hackett affirms the value of belief in oneself when reckoning with life’s demands and challenges.

“Success can come out of a relentless pursuit, focus and passion. Even in the face of obstacles – don’t ever give up,” he averred. Valedictorian Mya Landers called Sullivan West a “second home,” and marveled at how fast the past four years had sped by. “We have learned so much,” she said noting that the knowledge ranged well beyond books and tests. “We learned to think for ourselves. Now it’s our turn to teach and to lead. From this small town gymnasium I hope each and every one of us goes out into the world and takes action to improve it,” she said. “We are the hope for this earth and we are the only ones who can do anything to change it,” Landers said. “We are the ones who can bring back the importance of knowledge, truth, and scientific discovery; the ones who can revive mutual understanding and respect with our fellow humans; the ones who can choose to focus on saving our beloved planet, rather than denying that a problem exists. “It's all up to us, but no pressure,” she quipped as she wished her classmates good luck. Salutatorian Aidan Sensiba talked about the difficulty of

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21G the future,” Sensiba said. “There is far more that we can’t know than what we can, and many of our circumstances are ultimately up to chance. This can feel unfair and frustrating, but the first step is to embrace it. “What matters is not so much where you go in your life, but what you make of your time there. Wherever you go, there will always be opportunities to make good friends, to find what you truly love to do, and to pursue it relentlessly.” “As we enter the unknown, we are given the chance to learn more about ourselves and grow far beyond what is possible in the small realm of what we know now,” Sensiba

said. “We can become better versions of ourselves, and will likely change the world soon in ways we currently can’t imagine. We cannot be sure what our exact fate will be, but we can at least choose a direction to start in.” The band’s selection of the Soundtrack Highlights from John Williams followed. While Plescia read the names of the graduates one by one and announced the scholarships they would be receiving, Assistant Principal Scott Haberli and School Board Vice President Rose Joyce-Turner handed out the diplomas as photos were taken of each graduate. Dr. Hackett congratulated each one as they passed by her with handshakes, hugs

and a beaming smile. Class President Ayden Gann presented the senior gift, funds to create a senior lounge. “The lounge will hopefully provide some stress relief as the senior year is pretty hectic as well as a spot for seniors to share what they’ve learned throughout high school,” he observed. This year’s ceremony concluded therein, but without the traditional tossing of the caps. The Recessional gave way to a crowded corridor and an outdoor scene of hugs, smiles, tears and of course posing for those timeless photos that someday the graduates’ children will ogle at and wonder how strange things were “back in the day.”

Friends gather in the library prior to putting on their caps and gowns. Pictured front row, from the left, Dylan Ginty, Aaron Terpstra, Austin Melchick and Alex Reimer. Back row, from the left, Kyle Caycho, James Burlingame, Tom Stauch and Rudolph Roth IV.

High School Principal Mark Plescia’s theme was about the attainment of success, the obstacles to that end and the required perseverance, determination and courage to keep going even when things aren’t going according to plan.

Your beautiful heart has been perfectly completed with talent, charm and wit. You have always been a free-thinker; so never compromise who you are for the acceptance of others. Your conscience will thank you. Be comforted that you will make errors along the way. No one ever achieved greatness without first knowing the angst of a mistake. Take a moment to appreciate all who have loved you along the way. Because we will love you through the joy of your accomplishments, the bitterness of your failures, and simply because you are you. We are so very proud of you, Quinn. And so very proud to say that we are your parents. Love, Mom and Dad “Do not follow where the path may lead

Danielle Brockner certainly registered a strong impact during her four years at Sullivan West in many areas of school life including a strong contribution to athletics. She will be attending Hartwick College to study Nursing.

Valedictorian Mya Landers told her classmates, “Here at Sullivan West we learned to think for ourselves. Now it’s our turn to teach and to lead. From this small town gymnasium I hope each and every one us goes out into the world and takes action to improve it. We are the hope for this earth and we are the only ones who can do anything to change it.”

Salutatorian Aidan Sensiba’s message was about embracing the unknown future. “What matters is not so much where you go in your life, but what you make of your time there,” he averred.

Tri-Valley graduates 77

The Tri-Valley Graduation Band provided some tunes before the start of the ceremony.

Following a long-standing tradition, graduates threw their hats in the air at the conclusion of the ceremonies.

Michael Schulte, a multi-sport athlete, with his grandfather Michael Holley, mother Dena, younger brother and Tri-Valley Alpine Skiing teammate Joey Schulte.

GRAHAMSVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Friends, family, loved ones, administration and faculty gathered in the Bernstein Theatre last Saturday to celebrate the Tri-Valley Class of 2017. This year, 77 seniors moved their tassels and threw their hats in the air, ready to embark on the next chapter of their young lives. Olivia Spriggens, who will further her education at the University of Rochester, was the class valedictorian, and in her speech, she compared the Class of 2017 to superheroes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so pleased to inform you all that today we are not only graduating high school, but have also just completed the first stage of our superhero training,â&#x20AC;? Spriggens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You may not have realized it, but over these past few years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all been acquiring our super powers. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gained

strength. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gained knowledge. And like the conclusion of any good superhero movie, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gained friendship and teamwork. These newly obtained powers are skills that will benefit us for life.â&#x20AC;? Speaking of superheroes, the term also represents those who dedicate their lives to fighting for our freedoms and keeping us safe. In 2011, TriValley started a tradition, the Armed Forces Presentation, honoring members of each graduating class that have committed to joining one of the branches of the United States military. Prior to the recognition of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group, Class Advisor Brenda Sloan discussed the origin of the presentation and told a story of a visit with a former Tri-Valley graduate Joshua Winters (Class of 2014) who serves in the U.S. Air Force, specializing in Explo-

EllenRose Duffy received her diploma from Tri-Valley Board of Education President Keith Edwards.

Salutatorian Kacie Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speech included several comparisons, most notably to her early days in tee-ball. Allison will be attending and playing softball at American International College in Springfield, Mass. sive Ordinance Disposal. When Sloan asked him why he would choose to do something so dangerous, Winters replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;So that someone else doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And with that answer, he defined the hearts and mindsets of so many who choose to enlist,â&#x20AC;? Sloan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They choose to go, to serve, to fight, to sacrifice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the highest form of love for oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country and its people.â&#x20AC;? This year, there were seven Tri-Valley seniors honored:

Michael DeVito (Air Force) and his twin brother William DeVito (Marines); Robert Mercado (Marines); Frank Morrow IV (Marines); Austin Polomcean (Navy); Gavin Simpson (Army) and Thomas Vigilone (Army). The graduation, which was live streamed, allowed Mercadoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older brothers to watch from the Middle East, where they are currently stationed. Kacie Allison, a stand out softball player who will be suiting up for American International College in Springfield, Mass. in the fall, was the

class salutatorian. Allison went on to say her In her speech, Allison dis- foundation was her parents, cussed when she began play- thanking them for always being tee-ball as a kid, and how lieving in her. the tee was used to help playâ&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting out in the world, ers develop the foundation of meeting new people, and trytheir swing. She compared ing new things is what we all that to life, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śmost plan to do at one point or anpeople think that after tee- other, but we must never forball we put the tee away for get to look back on our good, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case. childhood, and be proud of Whenever we fall into a where we came from.

‘Be unlikely’ is part of theme at Monticello graduation ceremony STORY AND PHOTOS BY RICH KLEIN

MONTICELLO — A diverse group of students graduated Monticello High School on Sunday at a packed fieldhouse at SUNY Sullivan, where families and friends expressed their jubilation at all the graduates’ achievements throughout the ceremony. Principal Stephen Wilder kicked off the list of speakers with the poem, “It Couldn’t Be Done” by Edgar Albert Guest, which basically encouraged students to seek their dreams despite naysayers. Here’s an excerpt: “With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done, and he did it. “ Tammy Mangus, the School Superintendent, said: “Choose to be unlikely. You

see, when you are unlikely, folks will often try to stifle your great expectations. It’s likely that folks will say that you can’t, but the likely is never inspiring ... in fact, it seeks only to protect mediocrity. You, 2017, are better than that. You are our hope. You are our future. Serve the greater good. “ Mangus then encouraged the students to be like World War II veteran Edward M. Maier, the 94-year-old Wurtsboro man who received a New York State high school degree on Sunday. Maier arrived in Normandy nine days after the invasion and spent the war repairing soldiers’ military vehicles. Mangus encouraged students to, “Listen, smile ... when someone brings you hate, pack it up and send somebody else joy. Empower others. Spread hope, instead of contempt.” She concluded her remarks with “Confuse the heck out of them, 2017 ... be unlikely.” Graduates Lillie Carnell,

Parth P. Patel and Taylor Spargo, who had the highest grades in their class, were rewarded with the opportunity to give speeches to their peers. Carnell noted that their education “is not measured by how many facts we have memorized over the past four years but that we have learned how to think, not what to think. “ Patel, who graduated at the top of the class and who will attend SUNY Binghamton in its pre-med program, told his fellow graduates, “Despite the negative stigma that surrounds our school, I can say with conviction that without Monticello, none of us would have had the opportunity to be part of such a diverse student body and interact with so many different kinds of people. These aspects of our school make it such an enriching learning environment, and I know that is something we can all appreciate.” Patel said that during high

school, he noticed an obsession with the word “intelligence” but asserted that “the brain is trained through perseverance and intellectual enrichment rather than physical exertion.” Patel imparted this advice for his peers: “You alone are the pilot of your dreams.” And Spargo shared this bit of advice, “Create the life you wish to live and a life of adventure and possibilities. Open up to opportunities and the world will be yours. “ World War II veteran Maier was given an extended standing ovation upon receiving his diploma as part of a program known as Operation Recognition by the New York State Department of Veterans Affairs that recognizes those who left to serve in World War II, the Korean War or the Vietnam War before graduating from high school. In congratulating Maier, Principal Wilder said, “This is a special opportunity for all of us, to share in this historic long-deserved and very special moment for Edward Maier. We are grateful for your honorable and selfless service to your country and glad you are here today to receive your New York State High School diploma.” Taylor Spargo speaks to her peers.

pride reflected in past speeches as this community was referred to as a close knit family,” Salutatorian Mollie Engle said. “I can attest to this unwavering support, which has provided strong roots for each of us to embark upon our future goals.” It's a testament to the town that Roscoe is, which allowed for this year's class to have a 100 percent graduation rate.
