altSULLIVAN — Members of Sumner Memorial High School’s Class of 2013 had their graduation ceremonies June 13.

With accolades ranging across the board from sports to education to drama, the graduates achieved a better-than-80-percent postsecondary institutions and/or military acceptance rate.

“The highest acceptance in memory,” said keynote speaker John Wells, who also is the class’s advisor and the school’s shop teacher of 30 years.

Salutatorian Hannah Woodward of Gouldsboro told her classmates to embrace life.

“We are alive and well and we should celebrate every minute of every day; no reason every day should not be as happy or as celebrated as this one,” she said.

The graduating class of 42 students received over $83,000 in scholarships and will receive over $206,000 in their financial aid packages.
