NORTH SMITHFIELD BLACKSTONE WOONSOCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JUNE 13-19, 2019 GRADUATION 2019 7 killed during a flash flood at a New Hampshire campground in 2008 at the age of 7. Mandeville died from a rare brain tumor in 2012 at the age of 11. "These students will forever be a part of the class of 2019 and will always remain in our hearts," said Assistant Principal Steven Boss as school officials presented diplomas and yearbooks in memory of the stu- dents. Principal Timothy McGee reminded students of the importance of con- tinuing their learning throughout their lives, drawing a parallel to the recently reopened stone arch bridge. The bridge, he said, demonstrates the importance of students maintaining their heritage while also adapting to changing needs and conditions, rein- venting themselves according to the paths they choose. "You have earned the right to cross the bridge. You are now able to apply what you have learned and I wish you all the best beyond the crossing," he said.
