The auditorium at the East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School was filled with excitement on June 26, as 105 students from the Class of 2019 became graduates in front of family, friends, district staff and members of the Board of Education.

The ceremony kicked off with “The Star-Spangled Banner,” along with a beautiful performance of “Seasons of Love” by the graduation chorus. 

Several speakers delivered moving speeches and offered words of advice to the graduating class, including Superintendent of Schools Lisa Ruiz, Board of Education Trustee Patti Nicoletti, valedictorian Laura Millar, salutatorian Scott Buzzolani, Class of 2019 advisors Scott Gerken and Brigid Mulvaney, and high school Principal Richard Schaffer.

Following the distribution of diplomas, the East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School’s Class of 2019 turned the tassels on their caps from right to left and then embraced each other in celebration of their accomplishment.
