    School: Saint Bernard School

    Number of graduates: 54

    Ceremony location: Cathedral of St. Patrick, Norwich

    Senior Class Orator Sienna Sferrazza: “Making a difference at Saint Bernard School is encouraged, not only within our school, but in the community as well. This is not an opinion but a mere fact. Here are some statistics to back this up. If you live to be 70, you meet an average of 80,000 people in your lifetime. Now that's a lot of people. But if everyone of us changed the lives of just 10 people, and each one of those people changed the lives of another 10 people and another 10 after that, then in 5 generations, the class of 2024 will have changed the lives of 800 million people. If you think it's hard to change the lives of 10 people, you're wrong. I saw it happen each and everyday at Saint Bernard School. Life changing moments were created in that building that forged who we are now, and who we will become. Saint Bernard School helped me find who I want to be, by instilling core values needed to thrive in our small community and the larger society.”

    “As I leave you with the question of not what do you want to be when you grow up, but who do you want to be. Let us remember that faith, coupled with determination, can help us achieve our dreams. May we never forget that God is good, may His divine presence continue to bless and guide us on our paths. What Saint Bernard means to me can be summed up by a quote by a retired Saint Bernard teacher and Alumni. ‘There are tall ships, there are wooden ships, and there are ships that sail the sea, but the best and most powerful ships are friendships.’ The highlight of my Saint Bernard experience was the friendships I've been able to make with each and everyone of you.”
