Addresses were given by Salutatorian Zoe Kaplan and Valedictorian Elizabeth Silver.

Senior Class Advisors Tawn Turnesa-Norton and Tom Rogers addressed the class and reminded them of class memories, including Spirit Week competitions. Mr. Rogers, like the famous nice-guy children's television host, said, "In a time when people are talking about building walls, remember to be a good neighbor."

Congratulations to the Class of 2016!
