Henry Ford II graduates can head into their future knowing the have the power to overcome anything. 

“We have conquered a pandemic,” said commencement speaker Zoe Rosol. “The simple truth is there is nothing holding us back from exploring the world and doing what truly inspires us.
 
Nearly 500 Henry Ford II graduates received their diplomas at ceremonies held Saturday at the Oakland University O’rena. 

Superintendent Robert Monroe reminded students that their community will be there to support those endless possibilities. 

“When your parents first registered you in Utica Community Schools, you received a lifetime contract,” he said.  We not only represent your hometown and your roots, but we are also the individuals and relationships that will last a lifetime. Look around this arena – the people who surround you today will be with you always.”  

Board of Education Trustee Adrienne Rubel encouraged graduates to always question and find better ways for the problems they face in the future. 

“Every time you see something that doesn’t quite look right, remember to do what you have always done - ask why and come up with a better way,” she said. “If you do that, we will know as your school community and as your parents, that we have done our job.” 

Principal Lori Singleton shared the accomplishments of the graduates: 

52 Valedictorians and 3 Salutatorians 
180 seniors took at least one AP class this year, and 20 took college courses through dual enrollment. 
109 graduates are members of the National Honor Society
10 are members of the Utica Center for Math Science and Technology
16 are members of the Utica Center for Science and Industry
135 are Falcon scholars, which means they maintained a GPA of 3.67 or higher for seven semesters. 
67 graduating seniors are AP scholars earned a 3.67 GPA in 4 or more AP classes.  
39 Seniors are Presidential scholars having earned at least a 1160 on the SAT and having a GPA of at least a 3.67 GPA or higher. 

Singleton told Ford II graduates: “Regardless of where your journey’s takes you, always remember everyone at Henry Ford believes in you and you will always be a part of the Falcon family!
