Last Friday’s (June 2) graduation was a unique one. With scattered thunderstorms forecast and threatening to force the ceremonies inside, school officials decided to hold out as long as they could, working with two plans in place – one for outside at Christie Serino Jr. Memorial Stadium – and the other for inside the Saugus Middle/High School Complex gym. Principal Brendon Sullivan announced that officials decided to begin the ceremonies 15 minutes earlier and switch the program so that diplomas were issued first before student speeches to allow all of the graduating seniors the chance to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas. As it turned out, the rains held off until after the student speeches began. Students, parents, faculty, school administrators and friends rushed inside the Saugus Middle/High School Complex when it began raining for the completion of the last night for the Class of 2023 together as students.
