The audience was filled with parents who cheered as their sons and daughters went up to the stage to accept their honors award.
“I am very proud of our daughter she received the mathematics award today,” said Robert and Christine Mercadante.
Not every one who got an award was a senior.
“I have a junior daughter that just got one of the bio citizenship awards. I am very excited and proud of her,” said Ann Weldon.
Some parents traveled for this event like Carter Wilhelm’s mom, Terry Rand, who lives in Vermont.
“I am very proud of Carter who got the Apollon P.D. Valakis scholarship,” said Rand.
