Graduate giving a thumbs up to her familyCommencement means new beginnings for Stevenson High School 

For Stevenson Titans, graduation ceremonies on Sunday signaled a new start for young adults who have been growing since they took their first steps in a UCS school. 

“This is a start to our adulthood, our future, our lives,” said commencement speaker Lauren Nemens. “It is our time to become adults. It’s time for a fresh start.” 

For senior speaker Lauren Nemens, that means starting a new chapter. 

“Each of us is an author to our own life story,” she said. 

Stevenson principal Kenneth Cucchi congratulated the graduates for their resiliency, and told them the strength they showed over the past two years will guide their future success. 

“You will decide what the rest of your story looks like. Make it amazing,” he said. 

Nearly 600 Titans earned their diplomas at ceremonies held Sunday morning at the Oakland University O’rena. 

Superintendent Robert Monroe reminded students that their community will be there to support those endless possibilities. 

“When your parents first registered you in Utica Community Schools, you received a lifetime contract,” he said.  We not only represent your hometown and your roots, but we are also the individuals and relationships that will last a lifetime. Look around this arena – the people who surround you today will be with you always.”  

Board of Education Vice President Denyeal Nesovski encouraged graduates to always question and find better ways for the problems they face in the future. 

“Every time you see something that doesn’t quite look right, remember to do what you have always done - ask why and come up with a better way,” she said. “If you do that, we will know as your school community and as your parents, that we have done our job.” 

Congratulations Stevenson High School graduates!
