And the accomplishments the students hold together as a class certainly proved him correct. The Class of 2004 graduated with 99 percent of the students planning to attend college in the fall. Collectively, they received academic, merit-award scholarships of $10,780,77, a figure Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carole G. Hankin told the graduates was a record amount for any graduating class.
