Woodside sends off its graduates

About 400 seniors in Woodside High School's Class of 2019 gathered on Bradley Field — the school's football field — at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 7, to receive their diplomas and take the first step in a new journey of their lives.

The school band, under the direction of William Tolles, played the processional and the national anthem, and Daniela Sanchez-Sevilla, the senior class president, welcomed the audience of family and friends.

The program included three student speakers: Valedictorians Holly Rusch and Rebecca Weeks focused on "Power of Community," and graduate Nino Montalbano delivered a talk on "Getting Ready."

Valedictorians (students with a cumulative, weighted grade-point average of 4.1 or greater) were Ethan Bhavsar, Madison Bohannon, Samantha Borthwick, Izabella Brattesani, Nathan Cai, Melissa Crane, Aubrie Ferris, Giorgia Foresta, Alex Hadidi, Nicholas Hovsmith, Claudia Kister, Nola Klebaner, Kelly MacDonald, Madeline Mendes, Philip Moissis, Leila Odenwald, Zoie Orth, Ariana Park, Veronica Pratt, Ian Ramsey, Clayton Ramsey, Adrian Reitmaier, Svetlana Richter, Zoe Roytenberg, Holly Rusch, Erika Tsuchiyose and Rebecca Weeks.

There were 408 candidates for graduation in the Class of 2019, according to information provided by the school.
