The 20 young women and 15 young men of the 2013 graduating class were the first of Spa Catholic’s students to have gone from sixth grade through 12th at Spa Catholic.
Saratoga Catholic Principal L. Stephen Lombard noted that he was proud of the students and their accomplishments in the high school careers.
“These are talented students—it has been a pleasure to have been their principal these past four years.”
Fran Dingeman, who is general manager of the Empire Broadcasting Corp., and who has children who attended Spa Catholic, gave the commencement address and was the one to tell the students to bring their own sunshine, no matter the weather wherever they go.
She urged the students to be calm, be strong, and to be kind while also making their dreams happen.
