The Shelburne Community School’s gym was filled to capacity for the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2013 on Thursday evening, June 13. Co-Principal Allan Miller first welcomed the audience, after which the 86 soon-to-be graduates entered the gym to the SCS Wind Ensemble performing the processional. Student MC’s Jack Caswell and Jacob Evans addressed their fellow classmates and led everyone in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by comments by School Board Chair Russ Caffry. The school’s seventh and eighth grade concert chorus members performed “Time of Your Life,” followed by CVU seniors and SCS alumni Grace Vincent and Cole Guerriere address to the graduating class. After all of the young Shelburne residents proudly received their diplomas students Leah Berger, Hadley Crow, Jacob Evans, Maura Thompson, Jacob Matosky, Shay Brunvand, Ellery Harkness, and Jack Caswell performed an original rap song for the audience instead of the traditional reflections of the past.

After the recessional, students and their families and guests were invited to a reception in the gym before the graduates left on the traditional boat cruise, allowing the class to continue celebrating together after the reception.
