WESTBROOK - On a sunny, warm evening, 70 Westbrook High School (WHS) seniors proudly walked to their seats for the graduation ceremony accompanied by a favorite Westbrook schools' faculty member of their choosing. This long-standing tradition was once again an essential element of WHS Principal Bob Hale's 20th and last WHS graduation ceremony.
Of the 70 WHS graduating seniors, 85 percent will pursue post-secondary education, while one will enter the military.
Hale was one of two long-serving Westbrook school administrators receiving special recognition at the ceremony. The other was Daisy Ingraham Elementary School Principal Kit Bishop. Both educators will retire at the end of this school year.
Delivering speeches at the event were Hale and several senior class students including class valedictorian Annie Raunikar and salutatorian Samuel Grigo.
