'Goodbye, Woodside High,' says class of 2009

The weather was partly cloudy with a suggestion of rain at Woodside High School for the Class of 2009 graduation ceremony on Friday morning, June 5.

Lindsey Constantino, president of the class of 2009, officially welcomed everyone after the playing of the national anthem by the school band under the direction of Rob Baker.

Ms. Constantino then introduced the student speakers: Jose Narvaez and Sandra Robles jointly gave a talk called "Friendly Ride," and Benjamin Kahriman followed with "Impossibility."

Ms. Constantino, Rachel Lefkowitz, Josh Maine and Ashley Manchia, the officers of the Class of 2009, presented the class gift of a scholarship fund for the following three graduating classes to help a senior complete his or her exhibition project. Every senior who submits a project will be eligible.

Principal David Reilly introduced the class and the nine valedictorians shared with the crowd a speech called "We are the Change."
