The graduating class had 28 students who spent 13 or more years on Sacred Heart's preschool to grade 12 campus.
Diplomas were presented by Director of Schools Richard A. Dioli; Principal Jennie Whitcomb; Assistant Principal for Academic Life Anna McDonald; and Shami Ravi, the incoming chair of the board of trustees.
