Graduation 2014: Newsome High

NEWSOME HIGH

NUMBER OF GRADUATES: 582

VALEDICTORIAN: Vanessa Metellus

SALUTATORIAN: Alyson Kneusel

SPEAKERS: Principal Carla Bruning, Metellus, Kneusel and Class President Kyra Clark.

BEST REMINDER: Throughout the year, all senior group texts from senior class adviser Jim Govreau closed with the hashtag #dontbestupid.

MOST PREPARED FAMILY: Jorrell Almoradoa's family brought Cuban sandwiches and hand-held fans to get them through the ceremony. Almoradoa is the third child in his family to attend Newsome, so they're graduation veterans now.

BEST ADVICE: "Eat some graduation pie and cry a little bit; no one knows what the job market will look like in four years." — Kyra Clark

CLASS ACCOMPLISHMENTS: More than 360 students are honors graduates with GPAs of 4.0 or higher. Nineteen graduates were in the top 3 percent of their class, receiving recognition at Tampa's honor graduation.
