TRUMBULL, Conn. – The members of the Class of 2016 were front and center on the football field of Trumbull High School on Wednesday evening as the graduation ceremony began.

Over 500 students lined up, marched in and waited anxiously to receive their diplomas at the ceremony.

The commencement started off with the National Anthem, with the help of the whole audience. The crowds overflowed the bleachers, with parents, family and friends excited to be a part of the Eagle community as the graduation began.

After the National Anthem, Trumbull High Principal Marc Guarino made the opening remarks, offering words of wisdom to the students.

“As I look at you now as young adults, I see you now as a bigger part of the community,” said Guarino. “When you leave the field today, you will belong to other communities, but your membership as an Eagle will never end."

Loretta Chory, chairwoman for the Board of Education, expressed her pride to the students. “Through talents, you’ve represented Trumbull well and have made Trumbull proud,” she told the graduates.

Superintendent of Schools Gary Cialfi and First Selectman Timothy Herbst also made remarks to the class of 2016, reminding them of a job well done.

Rachel F. Tropp gave the salutatory address, and Christina L. DeBenedetto gave the valedictory address.

The ceremony ended after each of the students received their diplomas, turned their tassels, and threw their hats into the air.
