officially graduated more than 500 seniors Friday night in a ceremony that refused to become dampened by rain.
"Tonight we are Sachem," North Principal John Dolan said. "And we're not gonna let a little rain stop Sachem."
Sen. Charles Schumer delivered the opening address, telling the senior class a humorous story about the time he skipped out on a study abroad program to be with a girl who subsequently "dumped [him] by Labor Day." He warned the graduating class to seize every opportunity presented.
Valedictorian spoke to the class, as well as class President Erin McNulty.
