The Westhampton Beach High School Class of 2022 celebrated an academic milestone as they received their diplomas on June 24 at the school’s 114th commencement exercises.

During the evening ceremony, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carolyn Probst and High School Principal Christopher Herr congratulated the students on their academic, athletic and extracurricular accomplishments and their community service contributions.

Among those who took the podium were valedictorian Gavin Ehlers and salutatorian Madison Quinn. In speaking about the COVID-19 pandemic, Ehlers said, “We faced countless challenges, but now it’s time to take all that we learned and begin to experience our first taste of true independence. There is no need to fear what’s ahead of us.”

Quinn shared what she learned during high school, including how to handle unexpected changes. “No matter what you are faced with,” she said, “I urge you to look at each change or challenge as a surprise and welcome the new possibilities it presents to you.”

Senior class historian James Daniels, who will attend Princeton University, rounded out the celebration by speaking of class memories and achievements. In closing, the symphonic choir entertained with a performance of “We Are All in This Together.”

After accepting their diplomas and tossing their caps, the graduates joined a final procession off the football field toward their next chapter of success.

AP Service Recognition

Eleven Westhampton Beach High School AP Spanish students recently earned the AP with WE Service Recognition from the College Board this year.

To earn the award, the students were required to investigate and learn about a service topic related to their Advanced Placement course, plan and complete a service project and pass their AP exam.

For their project, the students worked closely with peers and community members to investigate and identify issues and possible solutions related to global warming and climate change.

Before developing their action plan in two languages, the students evaluated and analyzed existing programs and identified areas of need.

“The final results were a great success,” said teacher Denizzie Kearns.

Students raised awareness about renewable energy, food waste and consequences of deforestation. In addition, they raised money for the future implementation of a windmill at Westhampton Beach Elementary School, donated books to the Salvation Army and a local library, and collected and transported leftover food from their school’s cafeteria to Maureen’s Haven.

“This was a wonderful and empowering opportunity for students to be engaged in service learning and experience the course content and skills through real-world civic engagement,” said Kearns.

The Westhampton Beach School District congratulates the students on this impressive achievement.
