Info - Celebrating the Class of 2015 Posted Jun. 30, 2015
St. Edmund Prep celebrated our eighty-first commencement exercises on Saturday, June 13 in front of a crowd of proud family and friends at Brooklyn College. 175 young men and women walked across the stage, received their diplomas, and took on themselves the title of St. Edmund Prep Alumni.

The afternoon’s ceremonies began with the Class of 2015’s Salutatorian Alex Blair. He challenged his classmates to reflect on all those people who had accompanied them along their high school journey and the challenges and lessons they had encountered.

"Think about the difficult classes that we've passed and the new techniques as well as lessons that we can take from them like the ability to think critically, a new appreciation for language or art, or an understanding of the world around us. The passion that our teachers have placed into their classes has for many of us, myself included, brought to light the importance of comprehending the world that surrounds us.”

"So I ask you, my fellow graduates, to consider how your own individual lessons have gone beyond the classroom, and when you can look back on your past self and find that today you are a superior individual from what you've learned, then the value of your lessons can truly be seen.”

After the diplomas had been conferred and the awards presented, the podium was turned over to the final speaker of the afternoon, the Class of 2015 Valedictorian, Regina Locicero. In her remarks, Regina described three truths that her and her classmates will take with them as they leave the halls of St. Edmund; The importance of perseverance even in the face of challenging and difficult times, the importance of laughter, and the benefits of not taking the easy road.

“Everything and anything will be thrown in our way but it is important to persevere through these obstacles and make the best of a bad situation. To always get back up and try again. We will work through whatever paper our professors will throw at as and any problem our bosses tell us to fix. We will persevere through the challenges ahead of us.”

“I'd much rather laugh than cry sometimes. Laughter is really the best medicine; it can often turn a bad day into a good one. It's important not to take yourself too seriously… It helps us not only to get through mistakes but through some of the most difficult times of our lives.”

“In life doing the things you love isn't easy, but that doesn't mean you stop doing them just because it gets too hard. Taking the more difficult path in one way or another taught us a lot, even when we didn't succeed.”
