NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JUNE 13-19, 2018 GRADUATION 2018 5 dancers joined Goho on stage. "Oh baby, why don't you just meet me in the middle," Morris sang, while random graduates began to rise from their seats and take to the aisles of the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, danc- ing along to the song. The song had been significant for graduates this year: They sang it together at Student Government Day, and requested it be played at senior prom. Goho asked junior Bailey Campbell to choreograph a dance to the song to surprise students at their graduation. "This class is truly amazing," he said. "Because of your accomplish- ments as a class, you have made North Providence High School a much better place." Goho said the class of 211 students represents 75 colleges and universi- ties. The class submitted a record number of college applications with 525, and 14 seniors earned perfect attendance. Five will go on to serve in the military. His speech was the ultimate intro- duction for Valedictorian Victoria Winter. "She is a uniter, which is no small thing in this divisive society," said Goho of Winter, who has said she hopes to be a 2036 candidate for president of the United States. Winter left her fellow graduates with two thoughts: First, "the best part of life is that no one cares about you," she said. "This sounds like a depressing idea, but in actuality it is the greatest asset that everyone shares. Each and every one of you can do what makes you happy, and no one else will care." "As long as it doesn't hurt anyone, do it with confidence and joy," she continued. "If anyone else is bothered by it, cut that negativity out and keep doing you." Second, Winter said, "no matter how unglamorous life may seem at times, remember that you don't need a trip around the world, a million dol- lars or a walk down the red carpet to have a good time. You just need your friends and a happy mindset." GRADUATION From Page One BREEZE PHOTOS BY ROBERT EMERSON North Providence High School senior WILLIAM ALMEIDA, left, is congratulated by Supt.
