Henry Ford II 2019 graduating Falcons look to the future and new opportunities
Posted on 06/09/2019
Students yelling "Go Falcons" at graduationHaving achieved success at their nationally-recognized high school, the 425 members of the graduating class of 2019 from Henry Ford II  are ready to pursue new opportunities in the world before them, speakers said at graduation ceremonies Saturday. 

“Don’t ever let yourself or someone else put on expiration date on your potential,” said  commencement speaker Jordan Callan. “The world is vast, and the opportunities are limitless.” 

Principal Ken Cucchi noted the accomplishments of the Henry Ford II Class of 2019:

A composite SAT score of 1069- the second highest composite in Macomb County; 
Fifty-five percent of the seniors in this class chose to take at least 1 AP during their senior year;
Thirty-five valedictorians and two salutatorians;
Three members of the Macomb County All-Academic Team;
120 Falcon Scholars for maintaining a GPA of 3.67 or higher for seven straight semesters; 
Fifty-six AP scholars for earning a 3.67 GPA in four or more AP classes.
Fifty-two presidential scholars for earning at least a 1160 on the SAT and having a GPA of at least 3.5 or higher; 
119 are members of the National Honor Society, they are wearing the gold stoles signifying their dedication to scholarship, service, character and leadership;
Fifty-four in dual enrollment classes through Macomb Community College
Ninety-eight percent of the graduating class will pursue higher education at almost every university in our state and universities across the nation, including Florida State University, Howard University, Penn State University and the University of Alabama.
Graduating seniors earned more than 100 scholarships worth more than $3.5 million. 

“Take time to have fun and recharge your batteries before the next big challenge begins,” Cucchi said. “The future is an amazing place. Our ever changing world offers you unparalleled opportunities.”

Dr. Christine Johns encouraged graduates to use the skills they developed over the past 13 years as they pursue their opportunities. 

“Graduates, as you continue your path, stay curious. Stay committed to a lifetime of learning. Stay healthy, both in body, spirit and mind,” she said.  “Take care of yourselves, your family, your friends, your neighbors, and your community.” 
Board of Education Dr. Robert Ross compared the journey of 2019 graduates and their future opportunities to a poem by Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken. 

“Each of you took your own path, the road less traveled so to speak, and as the poet said, that has made all of the difference,” Dr. Ross said. “Life is not a race to the end, we know what our common destiny is, it’s the road that you travel- the journey – that matters. Choose wisely and enjoy the ride.”

Congratulations to the Henry Ford II Class of 2019
