Greg Marino/ Valedictorian James Townley reflects on his last four years at Oakcrest High School.
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – Historically, high school seniors look forward to their graduation day with eager anticipation. Not very many get to experience that feeling twice. Oakcrest High School seniors finally received their diplomas Monday night after the original program on Friday was postponed by a major storm just as they had marched onto the football field in their processional.
The forecast on Monday was almost as ominous as clouds formed before the ceremony. Due to that, the program was changed and the processional began about ten minutes before its scheduled time. In order to be sure that every graduate received a diploma, the speeches were held until later in the program, weather permitting.
The Oakcrest High School football program will hold its third annual Golf Classic on Saturday, July 13 at the Mays Landing Country Club.
