512 students graduated from Shaker High School during a ceremony held at the SEFCU Arena in Albany. 97 percent of graduates graduated with a Regents diploma, 67 percent of those students graduated with an advanced Regents diploma, and 182 students graduated with the NYS Seal of Bi-Literacy. The New York State Seal of Bi-literacy recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages, in addition to English. This was an increase in the second year of the program from 81 students in 2017.
“You are 512 points of Blue Bison energy,” said Superintendent Corr in his address to the senior class. “You are to be commended and honored. Today is such an important day—it marks the culmination of many years of hard work at Shaker and many hard years of work since kindergarten. Go transform the world!”
“Today is the day the Class of 2018 celebrates entering into the world,” added Class of 2018 President Jack Rotolo. “You are about to enter into the next chapter of your story. Love it, live it, and own it.”
