If you are looking for a run-of-the-mill graduation, you wouldn’t find it at CPC High Point Schools. From the moment the drumbeat began and music teacher, Mr. Craig Page’s 7-piece band started playing a jazz-infused “Pomp and Circumstance,” you knew this was far from ordinary. But most extraordinary was the air of inspiration surrounding the 14 graduating seniors of the Class of 2017.
As diplomas were distributed by High Point Schools Director, Cheryl Mountain and CPC President and CEO, Vera Sansone, it was hard to ignore the cheers as each name was called. Most verbal in the room, however were the graduates themselves. Applauding and celebrating each other, this class truly showed itself as a cohesive and supportive group at a time and an age when cliques and bullies abound. Graduation cap tassels were moved, Mr. Page struck up the band, and the recessional began. The CPC High Point Schools Class of 2017 will now begin their journey into the “real world” with the inspirational words of their friends, family and teachers in their ear and their foundation from High Point Schools as their roadmap.
