Zachary Lynn and Morgan Puls share a hug and exchange a smile after commencement exercises are over Sunday at Tampa Preparatory School.

TAMPA PREPARATORY SCHOOL

NUMBER OF GRADUATES: 110

VALEDICTORIAN: Greg Campo

SPEAKERS: Head of school Kevin Plummer; Alumni Association president John P. Fahey; Campo; faculty representative Douglas Smith; senior representative Visaken Vairavamoorthy

BEST ADVICE: "Don't forget your friends, don't forget your family, and, most importantly, if you get super rich, don't forget me!" — Campo. Runner-up: "Good luck, and whatever you do, don't blow it." — Smith

A FUNNY MOMENT: Vairavamoorthy began his speech with a confession: "When I was living in England, I thought that every high school in America was exactly like the one from High School Musical."

A SPECIAL MOMENT: Plummer teared up during his speech to the grads, who were his first sixth-grade class when he became head in 2007, saying, "I do not know this building without you or your families."

CLASS GIFT: A "smart" water fountain on the school's second floor with the capability to fill up bottles.

LENGTH OF CEREMONY: Two hours at the school's gym
