    School Name: Norwich Technical High School

    Ceremony location: Norwich Technical High School lawn

    Number of graduates: 159

    Valedictorian Morgan Cook: “I’m forever grateful and beyond blessed to have a family that is as unwaveringly supportive and amazingly loving. For those who don’t know, I live an hour away from here, so the sacrifices my parents made to allow me to pursue this education are numerous. Finally, I’d like to thank my twin brother Jake. My brother was also the Salutatorian of his class at Vinal Tech this year. I can say with utmost confidence that he continues to impress me every day, and that I strive to be just as respected and valued by those around me as he is.”

    Salutatorian Sydney Brown: “As we stand on the verge of a new chapter in our lives, it’s imperative that we carry forward the lessons learned from our collective struggles. Our experiences have endowed us with strength, resilience, and an unwavering belief in the promise of brighter days ahead. … As we embark on this new phase of our journey, let us remain committed to our determination, drawing upon the wellspring of fortitude that lies within each of us.”

    Highlights: The 159 graduates got to celebrate hours earlier than planned, because the school moved up graduation from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. to avoid the anticipated high temperatures.

    Community organizations, local businesses and private sponsors awarded a total of $26,296 in scholarships to Norwich Tech graduates this year. An additional $2,000 in tools from local businesses and industry partners were awarded.

    Four students received full tuition/internship/stipend at Connecticut State Community College Three Rivers through the Dominion Scholarships for Nuclear Engineering.
