Seniors received their diplomas on a picturesque summer evening on the athletic fields.

"If I could describe the Class of 2022 in two words, they would be 'adaptability' and 'persistence,'" Class President Taylor Schroeder told her classmates in her address. "Our class consistently joined together when times were tough."

The ceremony included a performance by the Senior Choir, who drew a rousing ovation for their rendition of "Ms. Jackson" by Outkast.

Also addressing the audience were Isabelle Tsamis, the Valedictorian, and Sydney Van Deusen, the Salutatorian, both of whom urged their classmates to seize the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world.

"The only sure thing we have at this moment is now," Tsamis said. "Please don't take these moments for granted. Make these moments count."

Aaron Ray, of the Class of 2006, served as guest speaker. He is the Director of Opportunity Programs at Hamilton College.

Mr. Carl Mummenthey, C-R's Superintendent of Schools, introduced the graduates individually at what was his final commencement at C-R. He is leaving the district July 1 to become the Superintendent at Niskayuna CSD.

Matt Sickles, who will become C-R's Superintendent on Sept. 1, attended the ceremony. He was recognized by Mr. Mummenthey during his address and received a round of applause from the audience.
