MIDDLEBURY — About 350 students from the class of 2019 received their diplomas during Northridge High School's graduation ceremony in Middlebury Sunday.

Wearing caps and gowns of green or gold, representing the school's colors, the students sat in rows on the Raiders football field as student leaders, Principal Andrew Wood and retiring English teacher Donald Lanctot gave speeches of commencement.

Kailee Miller delivered the student address, which included lessons she learned from months abroad in South America. Among her words of inspiration to the audience of students, faculty and family, "The people who stand out in this great big world are those who love others."

Following the speeches, and a performance of "Sweet Victory" by the senior choir, each student walked onto the stage and received their diploma, ready to write new chapters into their futures.
