The Walt Whitman senior class of 2012 has begun a new chapter. The darkening clouds, rolling thunder, and frightening lightening didn’t dampen their spirits, and the rain brought a sudden and welcome drop in humidity and temperature. In a smooth 1 hour and 50 minutes, 433 students inside Whitman's north gym received their diplomas, and heard Superintendent Dr. Thomas Shea give his very last Walt Whitman commencement speech. The Pledge of Allegiance, led by senior Gabrielle Ricciuti-Gomes, and the National Anthem, performed by the award-winning Whitman Chorale, got the evening underway. Nicholas Scover gave his salutatorian address, followed by valedictorian Kimberly Shen's presentation. Principal Acker’s speech and Senior class president Anthony Campanella’s presentation both brought loud applause. Board of Education President Jim Kaden then addressed the audience, followed by the much-anticipated final commencement address by Dr. Shea, which was roundly applauded. The Walt Whitman Jazz Band, directed by Mr. Allan Deitz, entertained the crowd, and the Walt Whitman Symphony Orchestra performed the annual recessional march.
