2020 won’t define Stevenson Class of 2021

Tassel Ceremony

Stevenson High School Class of 2021 vowed that the past 15 months will not be the final chapter of their story in Utica Community Schools.

“When I look back on my four years of high school, I think of more than just a pandemic,” said speaker Olivia Beckman.  “I think of growth and friendship and compassion. I think of those infinitely precious moments of laughter with my friends or the quiet moments of studying in the late hours of the night. I think of passions I have found and teachers and peers alike who have inspired me to shoot for the stars. 2020 is not the story of the class of 2021.”

Nearly 540 Stevenson High School seniors received their diplomas Saturday morning at the Michigan Lottery Amphitheater at Freedom Hill.

Principal Ken Cucchi honored the graduates for their strength and perseverance.  

“I have no doubt each and every one of you grew as a person,” he said.   “You came face to face with adversity, and you won.” 

Superintendent of Schools Robert Monroe said that while the world may be forever changed, there are a few absolutes that will be part of the graduate’s future.

“No matter your future challenges or successes, there will be people of strength who unconditionally love you,” he said.  “It is a fundamental law of nature that there is an innate goodness in others that war, economic instability or even a pandemic will never destroy.”

Board of Education Vice President Denyeal Nesovki, the parent of a graduating senior, spoke to the graduates on each family’s hopes and dreams for the future.

“You will always be in our minds and our hearts,” she said. “We will never stop being your UCS family.”

And, Stevenson graduates will always be able to call 39701 Dodge Park Road home.

“Our student body is comprised of people from all walks of life and yet with our differences the one thing we all have in common is that we’re Stevenson Titans, and we’re going to be Stevenson Titans for the rest of our lives,” commencement speaker Rohit Ray said. 

Congratulations to the 2021 Stevenson High School Class of 2021
