Superintendent David DiBarri and Principal Carla Scuzzarella are pleased to announce the graduation of 286 students from Northeast Metro Tech.
“We could not be more proud to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of the Class of 2020,” Superintendent DiBarri said. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, they have shown perseverance and determination. Congratulations to each and every one of you, and we wish you all the best as you take your next steps.”
Northeast Metro Tech held 16 socially distanced, in-person commencement events over the course of four days last week, beginning on Monday, June 1, and ending Thursday, June 4. Graduations were spaced two hours apart, and students and their families were allowed to stand together during the ceremony while staying at least six feet from other families. Students were given personalized Class of 2020 face masks and family members were encouraged to wear their own face masks or coverings as well.
“I’m sure most of you don’t know that my very first day as principal here was your first day at Northeast,” Principal Scuzzarella said. “We walked into this school together. Here you are today, 720 days of high school are behind you. You made it. You learned that you are resilient, you are able to withstand and recover from difficult conditions. These past two months have been challenging, but I could not be any prouder of each and every one of you than I am right now.”
The 2020 Craftsmanship Awards were given to the following students in the following programs:
•Automotive Collision Repair Technology – Luis Barillas, of Chelsea.
•Business Technology – Alex Vasquez, of Chelsea.
•Plumbing – Riquelmi Ramirez Romero, of Chelsea.
Videos taken from each ceremony will be compiled into one video and will be shared with students and their families within the next week.
