Plainville Community Schools awarded diplomas to four Adult and Continuing Education students during a June 7 ceremony at Plainville High. The new grads are Cristina Lynn Camacho, Dylan Johnson, Jason Nicholas Jacob Stender and Tyesha Latoya Syms.
“The graduating class consists of four unique individuals who preserved until they each reached their shared common goal of diploma attainment,” Jill O’Brien, Plainville Adult & Continuing Education coordinator, remarked at the gathering. “I have tremendous respect and appreciation for each graduate. They showed up day after day, invested in themselves, and never gave up.”
Some Adult and Continuing Education students earned their U.S. Citizenship diplomas during the program, while others were recognized for their efforts in English as a Second Language and other courses.
“Our team of dedicated educators and support staff, along with excellent leadership from Superintendent Mr. LePage, Assistant Superintendent Mr. Levenduski, and the Board of Education members, collectively, contributed to the realized success of each adult student here tonight,” O’Brien said.
U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Joshua Virella, the keynote speaker on June 7, told the graduates they can accomplish anything they set their sights on.
“Today is a day to celebrate, but do not let this be the end of your story,” Virella said. “Continue to learn and grow yourself into someone you and your family can be proud of.”
