Randolph High School Salutes the Class of 2020
Members of the district and RHS leadership team honored the class of 2020 this afternoon with special salutes lining Millbrook Avenue outside of the high school. This is one way that the high school is helping to recognize the incredible achievements of this year’s graduating senior class. The Randolph High School leadership team is working to finalize plans to celebrate this year’s graduation, and details will be shared in the near future.
As the team was working to get all of the signs up and in place, RHS Senior Chiara Ricupero was driving through with her family when she decided to stop for a quick photo. We caught up with Chiara about her future plans and what her high school experience has meant for her. “The best part of being a student at Randolph are definitely the teachers,” Chiara said. “They are amazing and do everything in their power to make us happy. Even during this time, they are always looking out for us.”
During her time at RHS, Chiara was actively involved in the theater program. She was in the musical all four years of her high school career and is the current President of Drama Club. Most recently, she starred as Lucy Van Pelt in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. “The music program here is amazing,” Chiara said. “All of our teachers, especially in the arts, truly go above and beyond for us. Every experience I have had in this program will be memorable.”
Chiara is thankful for her Randolph experience, but looks forward to the future. She will be attending Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee where she will study Education and History with a possible minor in Musical Theater. “The teachers here have made such an incredible impact on me that I want to have the same impact on my students when I am older,” Chiara said. “Their influence has inspired me to be a history teacher.”
In terms of advice for underclassmen, she advises that they cherish every moment of high school. “Take things slow,” Chiara said. “Take in every single moment because it goes by so fast. One second, it’s the beginning of the year and it feels like it will take forever. The next second, it’s the end of the year and you’re ready to graduate and go out into the world. Take advantage of every minute.”
If you plan to stop by the senior salutes and take a photo, feel free to share the photo on social media with #RandolphSchools and let us know what your post-graduation plans are. Let’s come together to celebrate and commemorate the class of 2020.
