Bow graduates told they mastered the 'four Cs'
Graduating senior Larry Nadeau kisses his grandmother, Edna Nadeau at Bow High School graduation exercises Saturday.
Along with setbacks and successes, said Class President Anne Kuenning, "we learned early to leave no one behind - we're a unit."
Principal John House-Meyers confirmed that this year's class logged more than 10,000 hours of community service.
"You've accomplished more than any other class before you," he said. "You know what community is all about."
"We will pray for your safe return," he said.
Retiring assistant principal Gay Longnecker told students she will be leaving behind the bells and structured routine along with this year's class, and said while she will miss some of the events and programs unique to Bow, some things she will not miss at all.
Longnecker compared life to a trapeze act, with students leaving one bar to grasp another, with some transition time between hanging out in space.
"Hurtling through the void, we just may learn how to fly," she said.
Student speaker Pritika Vig said while not all Bow students will go on to become rocket scientists, they had all learned some skills that they will use on a regular basis.
SAU 67 Superintendent Dean Cascadden certified students to graduate, informing them that they had mastered the four "Cs," critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication.
