Nashau South High School Class of 2013 graduates at arena
The students took it from there, flinging purple and white caps in the air and celebrating the official end to their high school years. The now-former students embraced as the caps and dozens of mini beach balls fell back to the floor at Verizon Wireless Arena.
The ceremony lasted two hours, much of it recognizing each student as he or she walked across the stage and received one of the roughly 440 diplomas that were awarded after several speeches from classmates and members of the faculty .
“Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. Congratulations Class of 2013,” said DaShawna Borgault, the designated student speaker for Sunday’s ceremony.
Valedictorian Bhavana Kaki, salutatorian Elaine Kwan and the class officers also addressed their peers as family and friends cheered and photographed the ceremony from the seats overlooking the arena floor, where the boys wore purple caps and gowns and the girls wore white.
