AHS class of '19 says farewell to the 'old school'

oldschool speech 325 6119Joe Dalton addresses the 2019 Arlington High School graduation, as the 'old school' looms.

The expected second-to-last class to graduate from the 1914 Arlington High School -- 325 strong -- said farewell under milky skies on Saturday, June 1, at Peirce Field.

Student speeches noted the expectation, depending on a June 11 vote, with whimsy and nostalgia at the 153rd commencement.

Principal Matt Janger cited history -- a photo in his office showing the graduation in 1866, when the town was still part of West Cambridge -- and reality: He called the school "crumbling everything." He referred to commencement as part of the process of leaving home. Read the full text >>

Ninety-five percent of the class are headed for higher education.

One of the graduates, Ryan Oosting, did not attend, but he still graduated.

The 3 p.m. start of commencement conflicted with his having to be in Westfield at 4::30 p.m. He did not slow down -- he won the boys' 2-mile run in 9:12.19, a margin of almost nine seconds, at the MIAA All-State meet. It was his second consecutive All-State 2-mile title.

The Globe reported: "As a freshman, Oosting could not have imagined winning an All-State title. Three years later, the Stanford-bound senior went out a champion."

“In my freshman and sophomore years before I won a state [title], I never thought of myself as someone who could win that,” Oosting told The Globe. “It’s very different to be winning.”
