The 2014 senior class of Paul D. Schreiber High School in the Port Washington School District, numbering just over 400 students, walked out onto the athletic field amid proud family, friends, teachers and administrators for one last time as students for their graduation ceremony on June 26.

Seated in alternate rows of young men and women, the students created a sea of white and blue mortarboard caps, some of which were customized to indicate their destination college in the fall.

“You are poised to take what will be a lifetime of exciting steps,” said Principal Ira Pernick in his welcome address. “I believe that greatness exists within all of us. Part of our journey through life is to find the thing that we are greatest at.”

During the ceremony, Board of Education trustee Lawrence Greenstein presented the Bogart Scholarship to Lylia Li for exemplifying high academic achievement, leadership skills, involvement in school activities and service to the community.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Mooney offered congratulatory remarks to the Class of 2014 and encouraged students to remain open-minded, benevolent and kind as they move on to the next stage of their adult lives. 

“There is no doubt that we live in a world that needs saving, and there is no question in my mind that all of you collectively possess the intellectual curiosity, the skills and the heart to contribute positively to that endeavor,” she said. 

One by one, the students were called up to receive their diplomas, which were presented by the Board of Education. After the ceremonial cap toss, the graduates joyfully reunited with family, friends and classmates to celebrate and look forward to the future.
