Drury High School

District: North Adams Public Schools

Graduation location: Auditorium at Drury High School

Valedictorian: Katie Booth

Quote: Booth spoke about learning from her grandmother that “beauty hurts, but with growth comes pain” and learning from her grandfather that where she stands today is never enough and she must always push harder. “The future is us, always remember who made you who you are and where you come from.”

Salutatorian: Mackenzie Dobbert

Quote: Dobbert spoke about the “unexpected and challenging year” and how it “was not a typical high school experience, but it helped shape the graduating seniors into independent thinkers ready to take on the world.” She joked that they should never take anything for granted — like having toilet paper in the house — and how your mask should always coordinate with your outfit.
