Hicksville High School Class of 2019

Expressing empathy and seizing opportunity were  among the themes reinforced at the 105th commencement exercises at Hicksville High School, as the graduating class of 2019 completed their K-12 careers, taking pride in all they had accomplished and setting their sights on the journey that lies before them.

“Each of you has traveled a road unique and different from the person sitting beside you,” said Principal Ray Williams. “No matter what road you have traveled, you are who you are today because of the choices you made yesterday. Likewise, tomorrow will become the result of the choices you make today. I encourage you to dream big and open the doors of opportunity.” 

Superintendent of Schools Marianne Litzman, Board of Education Vice President Brenda Judson, Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder and Nassau County Legislator Rose Walker all provided inspirational words of wisdom to the Class of 2019 to complement the valedictory and salutatory addresses.  

“Embrace the uncertainty and explore the plethora of opportunities that are out there waiting for you, and your passion will find you,” advised Salutatorian Kate Cimino.

Valedictorian Rohil Agarwal thanked the teachers and support staff for taking the time to not only guide the Class of 2019 throughout their K-12 careers, but to really get to know them. He encouraged his fellow graduates to remain positive through the peaks and valleys that they will encounter on the road ahead.

“You may not be able to predict how things turn out, but trust that they will,” said Rohil, “and when the opportunity comes knocking, be ready.” Graduation Pics Grad Pics Grad Pics 2
