The scholars are also the children of the late Dr. Shep Friedman, the Bassett orthopedic surgeon.  The other three top Class of 2019 scholars are Josie Hovis, Genevieve Landry and Kai Wasson.  Lower left, grad Morgan Stockdale received not only her diploma, but certification to become a welder.

At the podium is Jim Brophy, retiring high school principal.  Under sunny skies and  gusty winds, 74 seniors, including four foreign exchange students, received their diplomas in a ceremony on the back lawn of The Fenimore Art Museum, overlooking Otsego Lake.
