Hill Auditorium was the setting Tuesday night for Communitiy High School’s 2018 commencement ceremony.
Each of the 127 graduates had 30 seconds to speak to the crowd during a nearly 3.5-hour event punctuated by poetry, dance, music, tributes, and lots of laughter.
Dean Marci Tuzinsky noted that Community High School is a difficult thing to explain, and called the school a living, breathing organism.
She said her best advice would be to “fail, fail again, and fail harder.”
Superintendent Jeanice Swift urged the graduates to find their places in the world in a space that only they can fill.
