Balloons, flowers and a teddy bear were placed on an empty chair in the front row to honor the memory of Duffy, who died in October 2009, during his freshman year, after a long battle with brain cancer.
She also praised the class for devoting more than 9,700 hours of community service. Twenty-five students had contributed more than 100 hours, and one class member, Brandon Hannon, gave more than 500 hours, Mohr said.
Noting that the group is graduating in 2013, Ashley Cloutier, class president, shared 13 life lessons with fellow graduates. One of those lessons, she said, is to never forget where you come from.
Class essayist Alex Newton thanked teachers, coaches and parents for their support. Students are well-prepared for the future, he said.
