To the Editor:
Shelton had a banner week last week. On Wednesday, the streets got cleaned by a very swift and powerful storm, our 2020 Shelton High School seniors had their graduation in three waves and Mayor Mark Lauretti as promised provided a magnificent fireworks display at the Shelton Memorial Park to celebrate the graduation and our nation’s 244th birthday. The students and parents should be aware that the BoE members who took on and accomplished the task of planning the graduation were Amy Romano, John Fitzgerald and Amanda Kilmartin. Board Chair Kathy Yolish was pleased with the cooperation amongst the board members who worked diligently to find the perfect format and way to have a graduation in 2020. I’d like to also remind everyone that Dr. Beth Smith and her staff and crews should also be thanked for the time and effort and roles they played in also preparing and executing the three mini-graduations under the Covid-19 rules and regulations.
