Salem seniors go out in style
Those were some of the words that came to mind for Salem High School Principal Tracy Collyer when describing the Class of 2013.
That milestone meant different things for each graduate, Collyer said, noting that more than $6 million in scholarships was collectively awarded to members of the Class of 2013.
Collectively, the accomplishments of this year's graduates have been impressive ones, with band members having marched in the Fiesta Bowl, the Student Council earning national recognition and three sports teams — gymnastics, boys' volleyball and girls' volleyball — winning state championships this past year.
Salutatorian Zachary Arnold, who excelled in his advanced science courses but still found the time to volunteer regularly coaching baseball players with special needs, urged his peers to pay it forward as they make their ways through the outside world.
"I'm asking each of you to think of the person or event that helped inspire you," he told his classmates.
That passion for learning has served Ojo well: she plans to study neuroscience at Northeastern University this fall.
Class president David Rodriguez recalled his freshman days. A self-described "shy and goofy" kid, Rodriguez credited his friends and teachers for helping him navigate the path to self-actualization.
Superintendent Michael Delahanty offered some words of wisdom to this year's graduates, noting the years have a way of going by faster as one gets older.
