HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – There is a tradition at Oakcrest High School in which seniors, on the last day of classes, walk around the school and hand a carnation to their favorite teacher. This year, as the visitations came to a close, social studies teacher Doug Cervi probably had enough flowers to open a small florist shop.

While Cervi has always been a beneficiary of a large bouquet on the last day of school, this year’s carnation collection was special, as it would prove to be his last, as he has decided to retire after 41 years at the school.
