Polytechnic School: Congratulations, Class of 2015!

On Thursday, June 4, Babcock Field was overflowing with family, friends, faculty, and staff as the 98 seniors gathered to be honored with diplomas and officially conclude their time as Poly students. After John Bracker’s welcome and address to the seniors, this year’s commencement speech was delivered by the seniors themselves. New this year, students opted to forego an invited speaker. Instead, 10 students were randomly selected to deliver two-minute speeches telling the story of their Poly experience, classmates, and hopes for the future. With confidence and poise, the seniors took to the podium and reflected on how much they have grown individually and academically, and how their lives have been enriched and confidence fueled. They spoke of Poly as their home, their classmates and teachers as family, and a shared pride knowing that Poly has prepared and nurtured them to be, unapologetically, who they are. We wish the Class of 2015 great success in college and beyond! For a small sampling of pictures from the day, click here (pictures available on website next week).
