“The United States is still the greatest country on earth but it is up to you and future generations to ensure that we continue to get better and better,” Superintendent DiBarri said. “Please remember that you will always be a member of the Northeast family. It is our hope that in the years to come that all of you will have some connection to Northeast.”

Quoting Jeffrey Selingo, a best selling author who focuses on higher education, Principal Scuzzarella stated that Northeast students are “T-shaped.” This means they have a deep understanding of one subject, and also have the ability to work across challenging subject areas.

“I am confident that you are well prepared to be the next generation that keeps our country strong,” she said. “Your teachers and I couldn’t be more proud of you T’s. Congratulations Class of 2018!”

Salutatorian Raymond Borden, of Winthrop, spoke in rhymes about his time at Northeast, paying tribute to a fellow salutatorian, Dr. Seuss.

“You’re sad that you’re leaving, it’s a shame you have to go, but no more home work or classwork, how could you say no?” Borden said to his peers. “…You did it, and whether by stumble or stride, you’ll do what you have to to get by. The brain is not for getting A’s and B’s, but for seizing lifetime opportunities. That’s my knowledge I impart to you, and with my final rhyme, I bid thee adieu.”
