Taconic grads called on to keep making worthwhile relationships
Photo Gallery | 2014 Taconic High School Graduation
PITTSFIELD -- Four years ago, the majority of faculty, staff and students at Taconic High School were strangers to the incoming freshman. The Class of 2014 would eventually get to know and learn from people who would become some of their favorite teachers and best friends -- the good kind of strangers, according to salutatorian Lucas Benjamin.
"Imagine if you hadn't met them at that time or ever. I bet you wouldn't change that moment at all," he said at Taconic's commencement Sunday afternoon. "You didn't even know they existed, but little did any of us know how much potential they had to change our lives."
Benjamin encouraged his classmates to continue seeking out new relationships that will guide their personal and professional lives beyond the high school campus.
"You should always avoid people lurking in dark alleys, those who wear trench coats and especially anyone who wears socks and sandals at the same time," he quipped. "But you shouldn't avoid [other] people ... simply because you don't know them."
Benjamin's words of wisdom came prior to the 237 seniors receiving their diplomas before family and friends who packed the Taconic gymnasium for the graduation ceremony.
Bailey Stokes took the time to thank her mom, dad and other family, along with influential teachers she said were "invaluable" to her four-year journey through Taconic. The class valedictorian called on the newest alumni to also never forget those who helped guide them to graduation day.
"Our four years have taught me to find people that you can count on and trust -- and keep them close," she said. "They taught me to treat everyone with respect, no matter what."
Stokes noted that Taconic has provided the Class of 2014 with the foundation atop which they can build "an equally strong and wonderful life."
Taconic Principal John Vosburgh helped lay that foundation, stretching back to his days at Reid Middle School. He praised the students he first knew as sixth-graders and followed them to Taconic when he became principal of the Valentine Road campus.
Vosburgh urged the class to find that one person to count on during good and bad times, like his late Uncle Dan.
"He was a simple man who never asked for anything in return," the principal said. "He was my go-to guy when times were tough or I had a difficult decision to make."
"Who is your ‘Uncle Dan'?" Vosburgh asked. "If you don't have one, find one."
