Characteristic of Kindness That Distinguishes Lyme-Old Lyme Class of 2022 ‘Will Make Everything, Anything in this World Possible’ (LOLHS Principal Wygonik)

And they did it! The Class of 2022 celebrates their graduation from Lyme-Old Lyme High School with the traditional hat toss.

OLD LYME — The weather was perfect Friday evening for the graduation ceremony of the 126-member Lyme-Old Lyme High School (LOLHS) Class of 2022.

We have published in full (below) the speeches that were given during the event in the order in which they were delivered.

A full listing of the graduates is printed at the foot of the article.

More photos will be added later on Saturday.

We send our heartiest congratulations to the LOLHS Class of 2022 and wish them a wonderful, fulfilling future!

Class President Frank Sablone — Welcome from the Class

Good afternoon to everyone and welcome to the Lyme-Old Lyme commencement ceremony, filled with tradition and celebration of our community and our graduating class of 2022. The first thing that I want to say here today is that it is an honor and a privilege to be speaking at this graduation. 

As I stand before you all today, and I gaze around at my family, classmates, friends, teachers, administrators, and community members, my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. Knowing that nearly everybody who has impacted my life up until now is here, in one place at one time, is a feeling that words fail to describe. 

When we first entered high school, as anxious little freshmen, we couldn’t have imagined that one day we would be sitting here, as mature and confident seniors at graduation, ready to part ways with each other and take on the world. This class is special. It is filled to the brim with talented students – award winning artists, championship athletes, determined scholars, and so much more.

However, what sets this class apart from the rest is the character of this class.

Defined by kindness and leadership, our class has an abundance of genuinely good people who are eager to put those around them before themselves. When one of us falls, there are 126 of us ready to pick them up and brush them off. We have consistently motivated and encouraged each other to achieve our goals, while always reminding each other to relax and enjoy our time here. We have offered each other so much support and warmth from the time we were children, allowing our class to become a family.

This is what makes today so bittersweet. This class is the most caring, loyal, and compassionate group of people that I have ever been so fortunate to know. Growing up with you all has been a pleasure. 

To our teachers, faculty, community, and families – I want to offer a heartfelt thank you on behalf of our class, for consistently teaching and inspiring us with these morals and guiding us with welcoming minds and hearts to soon become impactful people on this world. I urge my classmates to continue making your mark, striving for great heights, enjoying your time, and most importantly, loving one another the way that we have been taught – the Old Lyme way. We have the potential to make a difference in this world and make our hometown proud, piece by piece, step by step, day by day. 

In the wise words of Winnie the Pooh, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” This will certainly be the hardest goodbye that I’ve ever had to say, but I am left with so much knowledge, advice, and memories that will follow me everywhere in life, and I can be nothing but proud to be a member of this graduating class. They say it takes a village to raise a child – so thank you, Old Lyme, for being the village that has raised us into purposeful and passionate young adults.

Lyme-Old Lyme High School (LOLHS) Principal James Wygonik

Lyme-Old Lyme Principal James Wygonik tells the Class of 2022, “”I know that you will be our leaders.  You will advance our sciences.  You will inspire us with your talents. But most importantly your kindness, will foster an environment that will make everything and anything in this world possible.”

To our Board of Education, Superintendent Neviaser, administrative team, the best teachers in America, families, alumni, community members, and of course the class of 2022, it is my honor to welcome you to the 49th Lyme-Old Lyme High School graduation exercises.     

To the parents and families of our graduates.  Thank you. Thank you for trusting us with your children.  May I remind the graduates that your families are your biggest fans.  They will be there for you.  And believe me, you will need them.  Never take for granted their love and support.  You will be astonished how smart your parents will become in the next few years.  Don’t be afraid or too proud to lean on them. I am going to pause my remarks, so each of you to take the next few seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are today.  

In his speech, President Sablone reflected on your kindness and how much this class cares for one another.  I couldn’t agree more.  Class of 2022, I don’t think you realize is how powerful your actions are… How the small acts of kindness; the “hello’s”, the “thank-you’s” the “holding of a door; the small compliments, change lives. Allow me to explain. 

At the prom this year we had a senior, who, let’s just say gets his money’s worth on the dance floor.  As the song concluded and this young man having spent his last ounce of energy, lay sprawled on the dance-floor, instantly, without hesitation, two hands reached down to help him up. Those hands belonged to two other seniors with different interests and most likely different social circles.  The entire interaction lasted less than 10 seconds and probably went unnoticed by everyone else.  One could even argue that the three students involved never gave it a passing thought.  But it spoke volumes of the Class of 2022.  Actually, it’s just one word.  

KINDNESS. You are just kind human beings.  I’ve actually witnessed some of you talking to and being nice to freshmen.  It doesn’t end there.

A few months ago, when the mask mandate was lifted, every student in a senior English class continued to wear their masks in class because they knew their teacher had a medically compromised family member.  Despite the assurances from the teacher that they could remove them, they didn’t.  Do you think this gesture made it easier for the teacher to teach?  You bet it did.  Do you think it fostered an environment that brought out the best in everyone in that class?  You bet it did.  Is our school culture stronger?  You bet it is.  Was it hard to do?  No.

Just kind.

It turns out there is some science behind it.  

Researchers at Dartmouth tell us this about kindness.

Acts of kindness are often accompanied by emotional warmth. Emotional warmth produces a hormone that sets off a chemical reaction that dilates our blood vessels which in turn lowers blood pressure. Kindness is cardioprotective. Another side-effect of kindness, and my personal favorite.  That same hormone slows the ageing process.  

An act of kindness reduces the emotional distance between two people and so we feel more ‘bonded’.  It’s something that is so strong in us that it’s actually a genetic thing. We are wired for kindness.

Our evolutionary ancestors had to learn to cooperate with one another. The stronger the emotional bonds within groups, the greater were the chances of survival and so ‘kindness genes’ were etched into the human genome.

So today when we are kind to each other we feel a connection and new relationships are forged, or existing ones strengthened. I don’t know about you but that sounds like a recipe for success to me.  

A few weeks ago, I enjoyed watching our softball team compete in the conference championship game.  Later that evening as the senior banquet was wrapping up, two of our seniors on the team Victoria Gage and Lauren Creagan made it a point to come up to me and thank me for coming to the game.  They had no idea how that exchange propelled me over in these past few weeks.  The month of May in a high school is hectic, demanding, and draining.  Admittedly I was running on fumes.  But those few kind words reminded me why we do what we do and inspired me to forge ahead.  Thank you, ladies.

Which brings me to the final scientific fact.  Kindness is Contagious. Kindness causes more kindness.  The great people at Lyme Youth Services have worked tirelessly over the years to create programming that will help our students, our families, and our community live better lives.  But in my opinion, their best work, their most powerful impact, rests in the signs they recently produced.  You will see them around town we have one here.  They read KINDNESS MATTERS.  I believe it’s really that simple. So… If we know an act of kindness lowers your blood pressure, slows down aging, strengthens human bonds, increases productivity, improves self-worth and is contagious, which all in-turn makes us a better school, a better, community and a better country.  Why not?

When I talk to friends of mine, the common consensus is that the world is broken and the future doesn’t look much better.  My outlook is much more positive.   Few understand my optimism.  Why?  Because they don’t drive across the Connecticut River in the morning, take exit 70, and spend every day with you.  I know something they do not.

I know that you will be our leaders.  You will advance our sciences.  You will inspire us with your talents. But most importantly your kindness, will foster an environment that will make everything and anything in this world possible. 

Class of 2022, remember that once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat.  You will always have a home here.

Good luck my friends.  Thank you.

Commencement Speaker: LOLHS Science Teacher Richard Fisler

Commencement Speaker, LOLHS Science Teacher Richard Fisler explained to the Class of 2022, “Who you are is not defined by how others perceive you.  To find peace and satisfaction in life, let yourself go, and be who you are in the moment.  Your need for acceptance can make the real you invisible.”

To the administration, teachers, parents, family, friends and of course the motley crew that is the class of 2022, I welcome you and thank you for the opportunity to speak today. As my students and colleagues know, I’m usually very shy and not outspoken, so please bear with me…

When Mr.  Wygonik told me you selected me to speak at this auspicious occasion, I couldn’t believe it. “You be buggin” I said to him. He said – “I’m not buggin. They want you to speak.” I said “No Cap?” he said “No Kizzie”  (Thanks Ahmed for boosting my vocabulary this year). 

 I searched high and low to find the right words to give you. I was going to Google what to say, but I didn’t want to have to write a bibliography in MLA format. What do you the students want from this speech today?  Mary Wholean told me to just talk about her for five minutes. Given the spiciness of her jokes, I’m sure I’d be dragged off the stage by Mr. Neviaser and asked to find employment elsewhere.  

Lizzie Duddy told me she didn’t care what I said, as long as I gave her material for Graduation Speech Bingo. Sorry Lizzie, I’m not going to cry and will not be quoting an author you’ve never heard of. I might however, throw in a dad joke or 2.

Then I thought of asking a few other seniors I’ve had. Maybe I can ask Lillian or Dylan. These two are so quick, they’re even fast, asleep. Alas, I decided to go it alone and listen to the voices in my head. They have gotten me this far in life and they know where the bodies are buried so I have to keep listening.

Whatever I’m about to say, I can’t tell you how happy I am to speak in front of you. As my students know, the reason I teach is not some selfless act. Most of you know I wasn’t always a teacher, career wise. Some of you believed me when I told you my teaching day is part of my work release program as I pay the price for past white collar crime. What it really boils down to is that I need people to pay attention to me. Anyone from my class know why I need attention?  That’s right I got no love as a child, so this makes up for it. 

Movies about teachers and students invariably end with the teacher saying, or thinking “You’ve taught me more than I’ve taught you”. Yep Hallmark card stuff. Ask Ms Rahr. There’s probably a Hallmark movie about a teacher at Christmas. but in some cases it’s true. I mean, I never knew about Woo-back Wednesday until Frank Sablone taught me about Pop Smoke. There are one or two school-appropriate songs in his catalog, but all kidding aside, his life story carries a message. Life is short. Too damn short. Make the most of it.

We strive to teach you skills rather than facts. Things like thinking globally, analytical and critical thinking. Fundamentally, we hope that you learn to ask as many questions as you are asked, and keep probing until the answers are satisfactory, or uncover those answers for yourself.  I’ve witnessed it first-hand. You’ve learned to tackle life’s difficult questions. 

For example, any of you who have taken physics knows why a bicycle can’t stand up by itself. Anyone care to shout it out? That’s right, a bicycle can’t stand up by itself because it’s two tired.

Seriously, though. I’ve seen you tackle harder, seemingly impossible questions that are thrown at you. There are physics questions, like is gravity real or just a warping of space-time due to the mass of the earth, and how much cushion does an egg really need to not break when dropped from the school roof. 

But you’ve learned to dig deeper, and take the skills  beyond the classroom. Questions like “Is water wet?” “Are there more doors or wheels in the world”  and “Is a hot dog a sandwich?”. The analytics involved in these questions bested any physics discussion I’ve had (maybe with the exception of Jack who continues to negate everything I’ve taught him by disproving the existence of electrons).  The conviction, nay, the pure passion in hearing John Videll orate to three cafeteria tables full of students hungry for the truth as much as a delicious lunch on the facts and data supporting that there are more wheels than doors should be in the Smithsonian along with the Lincoln-Douglas debates. 

To the parents, guardians and any adults that have had an impact on the development of these young adults, I say “Great work!” Take a bow, and then take a back seat. Your job is done.  Phew! Job well done.  I have 2 daughters, and both are off in the world now. Once they graduated high school, my thoughts and ideas were advice and suggestions and part of discussions of the pros and cons of any decision they needed to make.  Let’s face it, we barely know what’s going on in our own lives, there is no way we know for certain the right path for these individuals. Sit back and enjoy the wonderful ride that is life with adult children. Be supportive in their decisions, but let them make any mistakes they might make – we’ve all made a ton, and learned from them. 

So students – You’re on your own. No need to listen to your parents anymore. Go to them for wisdom and advice and love and support, but make your own path. Scary? Only if you let it be so. For me, leaving home and going to college was the splash of water in the face I needed to wake me up to life and how it was all up to me. You see before you a proud high school graduate with a 2.5 GPA. Guess who cares about that now? No one. Guess who cared about it the day after I left high school? No one.

High School was a foundational time for me as it was for you. The experiences of the last four years are tools in your toolbox to help you make decisions for the next phases of your life.  Whether you’re going off to college, working, joining the military or taking some time off to travel or think about what’s next, you’ve got a clean slate now. Make the most of every day.

One thing you’ll learn, if you haven’t learned it already, is that no one really knows what’s going on. We all try to do the best we can given what life throws at us. People who tell you how to live your life haven’t figured out their own deal yet.

Don’t let anyone tell you how you “should be”. Be true to yourself and if they don’t like who you are or the way you live your life, give them a smile and move on. Now in New Jersey we might fit them for cement shoes, but that’s Jersey for you.

If you take one pearl of wisdom from your time with me, please let it be this: 

Who you are is not defined by how others perceive you.  To find peace and satisfaction in life, let yourself go, and be who you are in the moment.  Your need for acceptance can make the real you invisible. Cogs in the machine are turned by others, not by themselves. Risk being seen in all of your glory. Can I get an Amen? 

Delaney Gagnon created the motto of Period 3 physics this year. In a rare situation where the class was distracted (OK maybe not so rare, but let’s blame that on COVID …) she said “Hey, let’s go. We’ve got Science to Science”.  A call to action that we used all year to bring the class together. I rephrase it to you tonight. Let’s go. You’ve got life to live.  Make it count for you and for everyone fortunate enough to be in your life. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have shared the last few years with you. Thank you!

Honor Essayist Abby Speckhals

Honor Essayist Abby Speckhals urged the Class of 2022 to, “Always remember to step back and think about who you want to be because someday, you will not be who you might be, you will be who you are.”

To all of our teachers, administrators, and families, thank you for supporting us graduates during the past four years. As you can imagine, it feels impossible to describe how our experiences together have impacted my life, but, I guess that is exactly what I am challenged with today.

First, I would like to share with you all a phrase that began as a joke but has grown to symbolize much more. A few years ago, I was browsing through a thrift store with my cousins, and I stumbled upon a royal blue sweatshirt picturing the snow monster from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television show in between the words “Beast Mode.” Ok, if you are struggling to picture that in your head, let me just show it to you. It was one of those items that you will only find once in your life, and I thought it was funny so, why not buy it? Little did I know “Beast Mode” is a phrase that can be applied to many aspects of life.

Although the dictionary defines a beast as a “wild animal that is large and dangerous,” I have come to redefine a beast as any person searching for the people and activities that bring them energy and happiness. It took me a while to realize, but I now see that my beast mode has been fueled during the past four years here at LOLHS.

I’m sure we have all had teachers that made us smile and helped us get through those long days. From forcing Barbies to bungee jump in Mr. Lillie’s class and battling the gremlins that haunt Mrs. Kelley’s smartboard to hearing Mr. Fisler play the guitar through the stone wall in the neighboring classroom, my happiness was often fueled during my time in the science department.

My fellow graduates, you have also helped to feed my life with energy. When it came time for us to tackle our senior projects this year, I’m going to be honest, I was skeptical at first. A 20-minute presentation and an 8-page essay? No thank you. But as I reflect on this concluding project of our high school careers, I can’t help but feel grateful for how we have learned about what “Beast Mode” means to each other, even if we didn’t refer to our interests using that phrase.

On a typical school day during this past Spring semester, I walked into Mr. Goss’ woodshop to work on, you guessed it, the robot, and I saw Alex crafting together his camping trailer from scratch. I headed to the auditorium to practice driving the robot, and at the same time, Austin was practicing his composed songs on the piano, so I got some nice background music. As I opened up Instagram that afternoon, I was met with Emily’s posts congratulating seniors on their post-high school plans and pictures of delicious desserts made by Lizzy.

These projects not only allowed for each of us to fuel our beast modes with different activities, but also I found myself learning about my peers as people rather than classmates. Thanks to high school, we have all encountered people and hobbies that make us beasts thrive.

To conclude, I’d like to share a few lines from the book Mr. Fahrenheit by T. Michael Martin: “kids are adorable little maybes: Maybe they’ll be president, or walk on Mars…or run a three-minute mile. But the older you get…the fewer maybes you got. So you wake up one day and…You’re not what you might be. You’re just what you are.”

As we step away from Lyme-Old Lyme High School, I want to remind you all that we still have plenty of maybes ahead of us. Maybe you will discover a new hobby, maybe you will meet a new best friend, maybe you will find your own “Beast Mode” sweatshirt. But always remember to step back and think about who you want to be because someday, you will not be who you might be, you will be who you are.

Salutatorian Nikolai Stephens-Zumbaum

Salutatorian Nikolai Stephens-Zumbaum reminded hs peers to, “Remember that you are always in control of what you do and your own attitude. Remember how you feel when everything is perfect, and remember how you feel when you hit rock bottom. Remember that there is so much to appreciate and your attitude is key.”

Thank you, everyone, for coming. And thank you to the Board of Ed, faculty, families, and students among us. When I found out that I would be speaking at graduation, I knew it would be a struggle for me. I feel that I have not lived enough of life to get up here and dish out advice for everyone. And I know that I need those life lessons just as much, or more, than everyone here today.

That said, I wanted to simply say a few words about happiness. A few words about what it means to be happy. Truly happy, the kind of happy that sticks with you for an hour, a day, a week, and then forever. And a few words on how you might figure out such happiness for yourself, so that you can feel unstoppable, but also at peace with yourself. I am not here to tell anyone how they must live their life. Rather, I’m here to remind everyone, including myself, of one of the most important aspects of life.

Being happy is not just the good, or the bad. It is both. It is impossible to be happy if you are not upset at times, as life is just a balance of these two things. Too much of one is just as dangerous as too much of the other. But it is possible, and also important, to try to be happy as often as possible. Life can be a lot. It can be unpredictable, cruel, and oftentimes unfair. It is only your attitude that will make a difference, and that is a big difference. Being happy is simple, but not easy. Every day, we each go through countless emotions. The good: excitement, pride, gratitude, joy, fun, and the bad: anger, sadness, jealousy, fear, stress.

And this is inevitable – no matter how much you may think you are in control of what happens to you, almost everything around you is out of your control. There is no way to control what other people think. There is no way to control what other people say. And, perhaps most importantly, there is no way to control what other people do. And so it makes sense that you spend life going from one emotion to another: life is always changing. But there are a few things that you can change, and that is what you think, what you say, and what you do. This is your attitude towards life.

So, if there is one thing that you should remember from my speech, it’s this – always, always, always look on the positive side. The way you look at things will not change what happens, yes. Being positive or negative will not make you more or less successful. But seeing the good in everything and everyone will make everything brighter, and you will enjoy your life much more. 

Now this is much easier said than done. I said being happy is simple, not easy. I stand by that. I also said that happiness is different for everyone. I also stand by that. However, I recommend that everyone, no matter what, spends at least 10 minutes a day being thankful and appreciative. Not as an excuse to think about what problems you may have, or blessings you don’t have, but the exact opposite.

Be thankful and appreciative of your friends and family. Maybe be thankful for the Connecticut River. Or appreciate an ice cream sundae. Say thank you to someone who has always been there for you. Enjoy the nice warm weather in the summer, and have fun in the snow in the winter. And always, appreciate the hard work that you have put in and be proud of yourself.

The most difficult part is to be grateful for everything that you may take for granted when you are not doing well and life is working against you. Work on making your attitude unwavering. The most impressive people are those who are happy and kind when their own life is falling apart, and it is these people who truly have life figured out.

Remember that you are always in control of what you do and your own attitude. Remember how you feel when everything is perfect, and remember how you feel when you hit rock bottom. Remember that there is so much to appreciate and your attitude is key. Because once you are content with yourself, that is when you can make a real difference.

If you are ever having a really horrible day, try doing something nice for someone else. Buy lunch for someone, or compliment a friend. Pick flowers. I know a lot of people who love to go for long drives with the windows down and the music up. I seriously recommend listening to salsa music as loud as you can and trying to dance along when no one is watching.

Whatever it is, never forget all that you have and all those who have been there for you, and pretty soon you will live an unforgettable life, and who knows, you might have an unforgettable impact on those around you.

Thank you everyone for giving me the time and place to talk here today, and I wish everyone much success in finding their own happiness.

Valedictorian Felse Kyle

Valedictorian Felse Kyle told her peers, “Since we began school, and especially over the past four years, our class has created its own little community, thriving off of each others’ successes and triumphs, and lifting each other back up on those days when one of us falls.
Our strength is our community. So much of what we are is a result of this community.”

Good evening. First of all, I’d like to thank all the teachers, faculty, and staff for supporting, teaching, and guiding us over the past four years. You inspire us every single day, and have managed to find a way to encourage us even on those days when we didn’t necessarily feel like learning, so thank you.

I’d also like to thank our friends and family members for being here to celebrate with us today, as we certainly would not be sitting in these seats without your love and support. Finally, I’d like to thank the rest of my class, the class of 2022, for making my high school experience as special as it was. You really are the best!

It wasn’t until about a week ago that it hit me, we’re graduating! For nearly the past decade and a half of our lives, we’ve been safely ensconced in the same familiar place with the same familiar people, and all of the sudden that’s changing. In just a few months, these people, who have shared so much of their lives; the playground swings, the fifth grade picnic, the eighth grade trip to Boston where all the teachers engaged in some funky dancing, the pep rallies, the field days, and of course, the tailgate breakfast, will all be moving on to new and exciting adventures, as they should.

This class is so full of talent, and idealism, and character, that I have not a single doubt that they are leaving here to change the world, and that fills me with awe, it inspires me, and truth be told, makes me feel really confident about the future of our nation and our planet!

We have been fortunate, in a day and age when nothing is certain, to have been raised and to live in a place where real community exists, the type of community where people take care of their neighbors, and give freely of their time. A place in which “it takes a village” is woven into the very fabric of civic life.

We have been blessed to have this safe place, where we’ve been nurtured and protected, and allowed to explore and experiment.

A place to not only apply, practically, the lessons of the classroom, but also a place where we have been allowed to explore who we are and who we might be, where we’ve been able to change and experiment with our styles and pursue new interests, to try new things, make new friends, to discover and to learn freely without ever feeling burdened by the stares of judgmental eyes. We inhabit a place so full of unique talents, ideas, and experiences, that it is impossible to have a conversation with someone in this town and not walk away without deeper knowledge or a broader perspective.

Since we began school, and especially over the past four years, our class has created its own little community, thriving off of each others’ successes and triumphs, and lifting each other back up on those days when one of us falls.

Our strength is our community. So much of what we are is a result of this community.

You have seen the support and love we have for each other everywhere imaginable, whether that be between teammates on the court or field, in the student section at a basketball game, on the stage and in the audience at any production put on by our players and musicians, and in the classroom as we learn and explore together.

Most importantly, we have been there for each other as our curiosity has sparked our passions and interests, and in so doing, we have been able to witness the nascence of world class physicists, bakers, drummers, ball players, writers, singers, dancers, engineers, artists and musicians, of changemakers and tastemakers.

As you venture forth, remember this example of community and continue to build it around you, let it propel you, and propel others, let trust and collaboration and inclusion not only be the instruments of beneficial change, but of security, safety and real happiness, let diversity and equity make you stronger.

I could not be prouder to be a part of the class of 2022, this class of willing, selfless and peerless leaders, and as we prepare to embark on the next leg of our journey, I beseech you to always remember the love that our little school and town has gifted you. As you go forth to expand and broaden our community, remember that those sitting beside you, and those joining you today, are your biggest fans. You can always rely on their encouragement, and their assistance. Remember to share your new adventures and triumphs with them. They want to hear!

There is no place I would have rather grown up and have spent my four years of high school in. I feel incredibly fortunate to have this enormous family of classmates and teachers and neighbors, so thank you again, every one of you, for making this our home.

The Mildred Sanford Outstanding Educator Award was presented to math teacher Lauren Rahr.
