Yea, Railers! Congratulations to our graduates and their families. We always are proud to see each successful class of students move on to the next chapter of their lives.
Last weekend’s Commencement was particularly poignant as we celebrated 125 years of student success, teacher dedication and community support.
Thanks to everyone for making the Newton schools a priority.
A special thank you and recognition to our Railer 125 Commencement speaker, Mary Snapp, NHS Class of 1971. As corporate vice president and deputy general counsel for Microsoft, Mary is a profound presence in the international scope of technology, law and commerce.
What a privilege for our students and guests to interface with her and to hear her perspective.
What a sense of pride we can feel that one of our own has reached the pinnacle of her field.
Because Ms Snapp cared enough to share her time and insights with us, because Mary is proud of her Railer roots, she very likely inspired more than one graduate in the audience to dream bigger, work harder and reach higher.
Thank you, Mary Snapp, for being a role model for us all.
Thank you for your interest in our Newton youth. Thanks for keeping your Newton connections alive and vibrant.

NHS class of 1969
