The Liverpool Central School District graduated more than 600 students during its 2010 Liverpool High School commencement held at 9:45 a.m. Saturday June 26 at the Oncenter's War Memorial.
Parents, family and friends gathered in downtown Syracuse to wish graduates well as they crossed the stage as an LHS student for the last time.
LCSD Superintendent Dr. Richard Johns gave the following message to the LHS Class of 2010 in the Star-Review's June 16 graduation special section:
To the Warriors:
I was at the high school breakfast this morning June 11 and spoke to several teachers who said this might be the most delightful class of kids they've ever taught.
That's a huge compliment to the Class of 2010.
If I could give one piece of advice, I would say, "Stay focussed."
