There were plenty of smiles and entertainment at the baccalaureate ceremony tonight at Staples High School on the eve of Friday’s 2014 class graduation.
Salutatorian Melissa Beretta, who will attend Duke University in the fall, told classmates: “No matter where you go or what you become, you will always know where you’ve come from. It will always be with you.”
“Westport breeds innocence and worldliness,” she added.
Beretta differentiated high school life in Westport with a TV show she saw where the valedictorian went into labor during the graduation ceremony.
Looking into the audience, Beretta said, “I can guarantee that it’s not so, mom and dad. You’re welcome.”
