We heard from 2 members of the Class of 2007 - who shared their perspectives (10 years out) for the 2017 graduating class. The Keynote Address was delivered by the famous Macedonian musician Vlatko Stefankovski. There were student performances by the band (featuring Petar on the drums!) and by a dance group.
It was a well-rounded celebration of the talents of the graduating class that we genuinely enjoyed.
Of course, our favorite moments were when Petar delivered the Senior Address - and when he received many accolades. (I am writing this now a few weeks since the event - so I am going to forget all of the awards that Petar received - but they included recognition as the Salutatorian and excellence in all of the Advanced Placement courses.)
My daughter was inspired by the event - and by the academic achievements of NOVA's Class of 2017. I think it was good for her to see and to think about her own goals for the future.
Petar's future is bright. That is for certain. He is heading to the US this fall to study at Brown University. We can't wait to welcome him to sunny Florida on a school break!
Here is a link to the recent TV21 interview with Petar about his acceptance to Brown University:
