Seniors say good-bye to Wilton High
With partly sunny skies and temperatures in the high 70s in the forecast, approximately 330 graduating seniors will bid farewell to Wilton High School on Saturday, June 20.
If the National Weather Service’s forecast is right, the 5 p.m. ceremony will take place at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Otherwise, the ceremony will move indoors to the field house.
There will be music by the Wilton High School band, orchestra and concert choir throughout the ceremony.
Executive Board President Cooper Pellaton will welcome the graduating seniors, their families and friends.
Assistant Principal Donald Schels will introduce the class valedictorian, whose name will not be announced until the ceremony.
Another surprise saved for the occasion is the name of this year’s graduation speaker, who will be introduced by Executive Board Vice President John Ryan Kettle.
Wilton High School Principal Robert O’Donnell will present the class to Superintendent Kevin Smith, who will then present a commencement speech.
In their blue and white caps and gowns, the graduating class will receive their diplomas, presented by Board of Education Chairman Bruce Likly.
Executive board officers Evaline Xie and Osgood “Endy” Perry will present the class gift — a concrete patio and picnic area in back of the high school — and Kieran Kehoe, senior class president, will close the ceremony.
Following graduation, all seniors are invited to the “Tune In. Stay Tuned” Post Graduation Party (PGP) at Middlebrook School at 10:30 p.m.
Graduation rehearsal will take place Friday, June 19, at 1 p.m.
