F-M High School holds 65th annual commencement ceremony

On June 15, members of Fayetteville-Manlius School District’s Class of 2018 gathered together once more as high school students.

Fayetteville-Manlius High School held its 65th annual graduation ceremony Friday evening at the SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College campus.

Traditionally, the senior with the highest grade point average is asked to speak during the ceremony. This year, that student was Nicholas Corso, who plans to study physics at University of Chicago this fall.

During his speech, Nicholas discussed the importance of self-reflection and finding joy.

“What I ask, is that you take the time to reflect on this unique journey and try to find and happiness within it,” he said.

Other speakers included Superintendent Dr. Craig Tice, F-M High School Principal Mr. Ray Kilmer, Senior Class President Patrice Calancie and F-M High School English teacher Mr. Timothy Burns, who the students selected to speak.
