ASTON — Almost 300 Bucs from Interboro High School received their diplomas at commencement Wednesday night at the Mirenda Center at Neumann University.

Flowing robes of gold and black filled the rows of seats in front of the stage as students and district leaders provided those final words of encouragement to the outgoing class as they pursue higher education, the work force, or the armed forces.

“Our history at Interboro High School is pretty unmatched thanks to the great successes of this class, which is lauded to be one of the smartest to walk through the doors of Interboro,” said Samantha Shemeluk proving the welcoming remarks at the ceremony. “We have future technical masters, engineers, doctors, lawyers and even a few senators.”

Failure, Shemeluk noted in her remarks, is one aspect of life people don’t like to talk about. She confronted it head on.

“Failure is more of a stepping stone toward your future. It is a new path that opens roads where there once was none. It is much more than we often think it to be; failure is a new opportunity,” she said. “A word of advice that I have for all of you, my fellow classmates and friends, is to say yes to as many tasks as humanly possible, within reason, of course.”

“Keep saying yes, and keeping testing yourself. Personally, saying yes has led to one of the best years of my entire life: This one.”
