“You guys brought what it means to be a Lancer back to Londonderry High School,” Class President Michael Bolduc told classmates, faculty, friends and family in a packed Verizon Wireless Arena.
“I think we are going forward to greatness. After all, we are the Lancers, and I believe that we will win,” Bolduc said to a standing ovation.
“Class of 2014, I hope you fall down. Learn from your mistakes,” valedictorian Cassidy Litch told the sea of blue- and white-gowned graduates.
The class distinguished itself in academics, athletics, the arts and pride in their school, Parent said. Their many accomplishments, he said, included: 15 percent of the class earning cumulative grade point averages of 4.0 or higher, the marching band taking first place in St. Patrick Day parades in New York City and Washington, D.C., and a lack of competitiveness as students collectively reached out to support others.
