Fare thee well to Menlo-Atherton's Class of 2015

 

In keeping with its tradition, Menlo-Atherton High School started its June 4 graduation ceremonies on a patriotic note. The program included a rendition of "America the Beautiful," a presentation of the stars and stripes by a color guard from the U.S. Marine Corps, and the singing of the national anthem by the M-A choir, directed by Patrick Maier.

Senior Class Adviser Sophia Bercow welcomed the assembled and introduced speakers from the senior class: Alan Martinez and Caroline Hodes spoke on "Find Yourself by Doing What You Love," Matthew Vollrath gave a talk titled "Be Yourself: Not as Easy as it Sounds," Rosa Chavez spoke on "Throughout Time," and Andrea Gaini gave a talk titled "Every Day is a Great Day."

Outgoing principal Matthew Zito added his remarks and presented the class to Sequoia Union High School District officials attending the ceremony: Superintendent James Lianides and board members Laura Martinez and Alan Sarver.

The choir followed up with "Feelin' Good / Let's Get It Started."

Guidance counselor Francine Andrade, bilingual resource teacher Gregg Patner and guidance counselor Lara Sandora announced the names of the graduates as they came up to receive their diplomas.
