August Graduates Bring the NRHS Class of 2023 to 704
Twenty-seven NRHS seniors were honored at commencement ceremonies on August 21, bringing the number of graduates in the Class of 2023 to 704. The commencement ceremony was held at the Linda E. Kelly Theatre with Extended Learning Director Maureen Maire, Superintendent Dr. Corey W. Reynolds, Principal Dr. Dagoberto Artiles, Board of Education President William Iannuzzi and Trustees of the Board of Education.
“Your journey does not end with graduation,” said Maire. “The caring adults of New Rochelle High School will forever remain a resource to you for whatever you may need in the future. We are here for you.”
“You are now charged with carrying the banner of being a graduate of New Rochelle High School. Your job is to make your community and your village proud, the same way we are today,” said Dr. Reynolds. “You must constantly stand tall and seize opportunities for excellence. As you continue your life’s journey, find your voice, and learn to use it.”
Dr. Artiles praised the graduates’ loved ones for their role in helping our students. “Thank you to the families. We couldn’t do this without you. There is no school that can achieve success without the support of the community. It is a partnership that must be strong. Thank you for believing in us and in our students.”
BOE President William Iannuzzi, a 2010 graduate of NRHS, assured the graduates that everything will be okay as long as they are happy with their decisions. “Find your passion, explore the world, find what makes you happy. Like me, many of you will have struggles and hardships as you get older. Use your struggles to become stronger.”
The ceremony was followed by a reception and photos in the House 4 cafeteria. Congratulations to all 2023 graduates!
