In line with a longstanding school tradition, Division Avenue High School’s top 22 achieving seniors of the Class of 2014 were invited to attend the annual Blue and Silver Luncheon.
Also in attendance were Superintendent of Schools James J. Grossane, members of the district’s administration and Board of Education, and school counselors.
Prior to a delicious catered meal, the students were asked to introduce themselves, state their choice of college and potential major, describe their most memorable high school moment, and explain what they will miss most about Division Avenue High School. Many of the guests of honor will pursue careers in the sciences and engineering.
In her opening remarks, Principal Joan Lorelli congratulated the students on their achievements and asked them to think about their definition of a leader. She encouraged the seniors, in order to become adult leaders, to be problem-solvers, kind, compassionate and confident, to continue to speak out against what is wrong, and to have a sense of humor.
“I believe you will continue to be high achievers, great students and future leaders,” she said.
