Some 250 students are set to walk across the stage on Sunday as part of the Class of 2012 graduation ceremonies at Chelsea High School (CHS).
The ceremonies will begin at 1 p.m. inside the gymnasium at CHA, and Principal Joe Mullaney said that for the first time, there will be a collation afterward for all families.
“It’s pretty significant for us, and for the first time, we will have a collation out back on the athletic fields after the ceremony for all families,” he said. “It is sponsored by Families United for Educational Leadership (FUEL).”
The Valedictorian of the class is Mursal Hassan and the Salutatorian is Thien-Ly Che. The Class President is Alexa Perez.
There will be no guest speaker, but City Manager Jay Ash is expected to give comments, along with Superintendent Mary Bourque.
Bourque said this week that she is very proud of the Class of 2012.
“This Sunday we will be celebrating alongside our graduates; celebrating our graduates’ accomplishments and our graduates’ future,” she said. “We say thank you to the families and educators who have supported, guided, mentored, and taught our young people. The future of our country is bright and full of hope because the Chelsea High School Class of 2012 will be doing great work for our community and society. We wish our students luck and we invite them back in future years to inspire the next generation of Chelsea High School graduates.”
