130 senior student-athletes graduate
Congratulations to the class of 2013 and to the 130 senior student-athletes who graduated on Sunday.
We are proud of all that each of these students accomplished in both the classroom and in sports. Ten of the top 15 in the senior class rankings were student-athletes.
We appreciate their hard work and dedication over the past four years and for representing Haverhill in a positive manner.
Thank you and best of luck.
