Class Acts: Mendham's 2012 Seniors Graduate
Sweltering heat, a war-torn parking lot and staggered shuttle buses did not dampen the Mendham High School Class of 2012 graduation celebration.
Held in the gymnasium at County College of Morris, the June 20 celebration over came a last minute hurdle when CCM's construction of a solar farm took out the two parking lots closes to the gym.
Administration came up with an alternate plan that included a map of additional parking and a shuttle bus for the longer trips. For all of the challenges, the packed ceremony went off without a hitch.
More than just a celebration of the graduates, the speakers in the administration including Principal Michael Matyas and Regional High School Superintendent, and Mendham alumn, Mackey Pendergrast (who also addressed the seniors at their awards dinner on Monday) took the time to highlight the school community.
Teachers were given praise for their achievements and opening remarks by 2012 Class President Wesley Peters were well received.
But nothing engaged the crowd more than the presentation "Decisions" by Christina Diana.
And although the scene of smiling grads with their friends and family is one repeated around the world every year, it is one very few grow tired of seeing.
