James Mercier graduated from Rockport High School on June 5th. He will be attending Champlain College in Vermont next year. When I (Caroline Mercier, mom) asked him for a favorite memory from his time at Waldorf, he mentioned his friends, the Hale St. building and Huck-a-Buck bread
Lilly graduated on June 7 from Newburyport High School, which staged a fantastic car parade around town, winding up with each family’s car pausing at the front door of the high school, just long enough for a masked Mayor Holaday to hand the graduate her diploma. The best part was that so many townspeople came out and cheered for them with noisemakers and balloons and homemade signs.
Lilly will be going to URI for the Flagship Chinese Language Program sponsored in part by US Departments of Defense and State. She’s determined to be a fluent Mandarin speaker by the time she graduates. Her admission into this program was definitely helped along by her membership in the German Honor Society, in turn, owed to her ten years of German while a Waldorf student. She’ll have a dual major but doesn’t know yet what the other subject will be. (photo by Nancy Durkee)
