10 GRADUATION 2019 JUNE 6-12, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION championships on the courts and fields, and taking rigorous coursework outside of their comfort level. "Most importantly, you helped to build a school community of inclusiveness and unity," Hassell said. Hassell said he hopes the students will keep the drive inside them that pushes them to want more and do better. "Have big dreams and work hard to make sure they come true," he said, add- ing, "Know that you are always a Spartan and are welcome back anytime." Senior Class President Logan Yena offered words of inspiration to his class before presenting the incoming seniors with a gift of $500. "Life is not going to be getting easier," Yena said. Yena said to live in the moment and worry about the rest of their lives later. Now is for congratulations, he said. Valedictorian Max Pierce congratulated and thanked Salutatorian Justin Andreozzi for his hard work and tough competition. Pierce said he felt unfit to offer advice to his classmates because he was in the same boat as them. Until recently, he said, he thought the mail only came on Sundays. He said he and his friend attempted to make plasma by trying to microwave fire. Though he's done a lot of "stupid" things in high school, isn't that the point, said Pierce. He said he's made it this far being a kid, and intends to be a child at heart through adulthood. "We all are lucky to have grown up in such a close town with a group of people who genuinely care for and look out for one another," Andreozzi said. In his deep baritone voice belying his youthful appearance, Andreozzi's speech took a trip down memory lane through four years of high school, saying those years have made students into resilient individuals ready to conquer the world. "Each and every one of us possess an unlimited potential, and we are only bound by the restrictions in which we impose on ourselves. But now, it is our task to be the best that we are able to be," Andreozzi said. Trinity Episcopal Church Rev. Johanna Marcure led an opening and closing prayer blessing the class in its future endeavors.
