St. Dominic High School Graduation

On Saturday, June 1, the Class of 2013 continued the tradition of classes before it as it marched down Anstice Street into the Church of Saint Dominic for the 82nd Commencement Exercise of Saint Dominic High School. Led by Grand Marshal Sr. Kathleen Kull, Theology Teacher, the 93 seniors who have distinguished themselves during their four years at Saint Dominic processed into the church.

Valedictorian Jordyn Coyne and Salutatorian Kevin Podell gave wonderful reflections. They urged their classmates to look back fondly on their days at Saint Dominic while at the same time urged them to seize all opportunities that await them and remember they are a part of greater team they are a part of the Saint Dominic alumni team and that “All Things are Possible with God.”

Elizabeth Faughnan was the Commencement Speaker. She spoke to the graduates about how they can look internally to their faith and family values for guidance through the tough times of growing up.   

They should be proud; this education will not only help them move on to college, but will also help them be the leaders of tomorrow.

Denise T. Smith, principal, said, “Your story is written with each word that is said, and each action that is performed. The influence that others have had on us, and us on them, makes a difference in our own story.”

Life presents many twist, turns, and challenges, each of which will change our story.
