Oak Meadow celebrates graduates

On Saturday, June 11, Oak Meadow held its 2016 graduation ceremony in Brattleboro, VT. Of the thirty-three 2015-16 graduating seniors, six attended the ceremony with their families: Zlatomir Fung, Westborough, MA; Jason Guerino, Vernon, VT; Samantha Laisure, Saugus, MA; Marcella Melanson, Machias, ME; Charlotte Rodewald, Dubuque, IA; and Emily Runnion, Brattleboro, VT. The graduates were lauded by faculty, staff, and their families; and some performed for the group: Guerino sang an a cappella piece, Fung performed Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1, and Melanson played an original song on her ukulele. Fung recently was named a U.S. Presidential Scholar, one of the most prestigious honors for high school students in the nation, and he is the first Oak Meadow student ever the scholarship.
