Malden High School graduates 449 at its 2022 Commencement

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One of top academic classes ever will send over 85% to two- and four-year colleges, universities; below: complete list of 2022 graduates

  The only item on the agenda more perfect than the weather on Sunday was the multitude of smiles and happiness displayed by all in attendance at the commencement exercises for the Malden High School Class of 2022.

  MHS sent 449 graduates into the world as newly minted alumni on Sunday afternoon with this class – like the two before it – having withstood challenges faced by no other groups of students in history. Despite the challenges, the Class of 2022 has much to be proud of, particularly with its academic achievement, as nearly 85% of its members are headed to higher education, including four-year colleges and universities, two-year schools or trade schools.

  Malden High School Principal Chris Mastrangelo related that many of the graduates had achieved high honor status with their grade point averages (GPA) and once again had a high number of participants and achievers in the Advanced Placement (AP) program.

  Many Class of 2022 graduates were recipients of financial assistance with their higher learning, as over 100 members received a total of $118,000 in scholarships at the recent Senior Awards Night. On Sunday, the Malden High School Scholarship Corporation awarded 33 recipients $4,000 scholarships, a new high mark, as announced by Malden City Clerk Greg Lucey.

  Another highlight of the day’s event was when the Malden High School Choral Arts Society, under the direction of MHS educator Todd Cole, unveiled and sang a brand-new song, “Class of ’22,” which they composed in collaboration with Malden Mayor and School Committee Chairperson Gary Christenson. In a switch from previous years, Mayor Christenson deferred immediately to the presentation of the musical piece in lieu of prepared remarks, with the new song very well-received with much applause. The Malden High School Band, led by Erin Mazza, also performed well at the commencement.

  While the COVID-19 pandemic continues in its third year and has made its mark emphatically in the area of education, all of the speakers at the MHS commencement made it clear they were ready to celebrate the moment and embrace the future, rather than relive the past. Malden High School Principal Chris Mastrangelo relayed that message clearly when addressing the Class of 2022 and the hundreds of family and friends in attendance. “As I gathered my thoughts to put down into words, I found myself drifting in and out of ‘Pre Covid and Post Covid’ thoughts. I was caught on the same carousel that so many of us have been on for the past couple of years. ‘Pre’ and ‘Post,’” Mastrangelo said. “I took these two words that have been used so much and switched the narrative. I replaced Covid with MHS.

  “What is ahead of you now is another chapter in your life that is unknown. Post MHS – you will go in different directions, find new challenges, have self-discoveries, get lost, make new friends and, at times, feel unsafe. It turns out that your Pre and Post MHS are remarkably similar,” Mastrangelo continued. “What is different is…you. You have grown. You have conquered fears and felt incredible joy and deep sadness. You have prepared yourself for whatever comes now.”

  Class Orator Tony Giech highlighted how relationships have become so important in both the Class of 2022’s high school years and particularly amidst the challenges faced in the last four years.

  The top-ranked student in the Class of 2022, Valedictorian Jing Ren, praised her classmates for facing obstacles and encouraged them to continue the “resilience, determination and courage” they continue to show. “While I cannot stand up here and tell you how to succeed, I can stand up here and tell you that you should not let obstacles stop you from doing the very things you want to do,” Ren said. “Me standing up here is evidence that anybody can do anything. Every single one of us had unique trials and tribulations that we had to overcome in order to be here today.”

  “We had the resilience, determination and courage to advance in the face of adversity. With this in mind, I challenge all of you to continuously embrace those tremendous qualities as you start a new chapter in your life,” she added.

  “As much as others have influenced us, our connections also give us the power to influence others, too. Raise your hands – how many of you have had a bad day turn into a good day simply because someone complimented you? Or got you your favorite snack? Or just did something nice for you? I know I have,” said Giech, the third-ranked student in the Class of 2022, who is headed to Northeastern University in the fall. “That power to shape someone is a gift and it is one of the most beautiful things life has to offer.”

  Olivia Chan, the third-ranked student and Class Salutatorian, told her classmates that the most important person in their lives is the one they see when they look in the mirror. “Many of the people I know give themselves a hard time because they think that they could have done better. Our worst critics are often ourselves, and we can’t see all the good qualities that other people notice in us,” Chan said.

  “Reconcile with your past self; forgive your past mistakes… Appreciate your current self; always strive to be better in the future, but do not discount who you are now and what you have achieved,” Chan said. “You are not a singular embarrassing or disappointing action; you are the result of all of your actions, forged from trials of fires and determination of steel.”
