BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Bronxville seniors received quite the sendoff at the school's 95th commencement ceremony held on the school's front lawn last Friday.
Senior Class President Thomas Maldonado spoke about the close-knit community of Bronxville.
“Bronxville is more than just a village or a school; it’s a community unbelievably rich with relationships that will last a lifetime,” he said. “I urge you all to take a moment and reflect on all the relationships you’ve formed over the years.”
Student Faculty Legislature President Aidan Flannery reflected on his years in Bronxville and the milestones he looked forward to. He also encouraged his classmates to live in the moment, reciting a quote by spiritual author Eckhart Tolle.
“As exciting as our futures are going to be, please try to focus on this present moment and enjoy these last memories that we make with each other,” he said. “I promise you that by living in the moment, your future will only become sweeter.”
A new award was presented this year to honor the legacy of Superintendent Dr. David Quattrone, who is retiring this year after 12 years of service to the community. “The David Quattrone Award for Engaged Citizenship” will be presented annually to a student who has demonstrated and proven themselves as an engaged citizen in the Bronxville School and community. This year’s recipient was Margaret McKelvy.
