Updated Gallery: More Swampscott High Graduation 2012

Add your own graduation photos. The Class of 2012 turned their tassels and tossed their caps and said farewell to high school on Sunday.

 

Swampscott High graduates remembered their early days and the road they have traveled.

The students looked happy but also sad Sunday saying goodbye to their school days and classmates at graduation exercises in the field house.

Commencement was held inside due to the weekend's wet weather.

Speakers told the Class of 2012 to listen to their good selves and work for the greater good.

Class Vice President Lara Dandreo reminded them of their early years, and a shirt some wore as youngsters that bore a saying that assured them that if they remembered where they started they would aways find success.

Class President Kristin Wheeler turned to the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow — characters in the Wizard of Oz — to trace the class's growth from elementary school children to high school seniors.

In the end they learned they needed each other, she said.

Commencement speaker Nick Hartmann encouraged classmates to move from fear to good cheer. He told a story about riding the Bizarro roller coaster on a recent school band trip to Six Flags New England.

His terror turned to excitement from the first to the third ride.

His address too turned to a storybook character, Christopher Robin, who told Winnie the Pooh: "You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

Valedictorian Paulina Perlin encouraged classmates to remember the good times and the bad times, and to use anger and powerlessness from the bad times to shape the world in a better way.

Looking ahead, she urged her classmates to break free from what will be college standard bearers — books and partying.

She encouraged them to challenge inefficiency and inequality and better the world.

Teacher Peter Franklin urged the graduates to listen to their authentic selves, the selves that tell them they can do what they set out to do.

My son lost a ring - gold with three diamonds - at graduation during the cap toss. The ring was a graduation gift from his grandfather. If you found it, please return it to the Swampscott HS Office. Thank you very much.
