Tolman High School's Class of 2017 graduated on Wednesday, June 7. Class of 2017 PAWTUCKET – The wave of blue swept across the new and improved Max Read Field for Shea High School's 2017 commencement ceremo- nies last Thursday evening. Friends and family members cheered for their graduates as they arrived for this opening showcase event at the new state-of-the-art athletic complex. Students, from diverse cultures and backgrounds, smiled and waved back. Principal Jacqueline Ash shared advice her grandfather gave her about the four "P" words for a successful life: product, promotion, people, and purpose. To her, the most powerful "P" that her grandfather taught her is purpose. "Purpose, the sense of who you are, what you are doing, and how you fit into the world establishes meaning," she said. "Leading a meaningful life will stretch your boundaries. It will allow you to think outside the box, to be more creative, to have a can do attitude."
