CHESHIRE. Mass. — Salutatorian Tia Kareh asked the 50 members of the class of 2023 on Friday to not rush out of the Hoosac Valley High School gymnasium at the end of the graduation ceremony but to take a second to dwell in the moment. 
"All those years ago we began as a collective … now, we have developed our own personalities, built our values, grown into the individuals we are today, and fight over who's taking shotgun in car rides," she said. "We grew up cherishing our time and making memories that will last a lifetime. What was once one month left until graduation, turned into one week, one minute. But we never realized how much we would want another minute."
She recalled collective memories: important bonds with teachers who were friends, mentors, and providers of snacks when "bored and hungry in third-period study hall."
She noted that the class of 2023 is the first to graduate without any COVID-19 restrictions since 2020 and relished in the return to normalcy at the back end of their high school career. She did ask the class to not dwell in this dark spot that plagued the early part of their high school experience.
