This past Saturday the New York Military Academy celebrated its 127th Graduation for our seniors and our 8th Grade Stepping-up Ceremony. It was a beautiful sunny day on the quad with a speech honoring the 8th graders by Cadet Jedianne Graham and the senior address by Cadet Montgomery Zhou. Although NYMA’s graduating classes are still small, the quad was filled with pride and excitement.
In addition to the ceremonies, the day featured piano performances by cadets Judy Zhou and Montgomery Zhou. Superintendent Jie Zhang provided the main address with class introductions made by Ms. Samantha Hill, Ms. Maria Reeves, and Dean of Academics Jonathan Gastel.
The 8th grade graduates were Charlie Dong, Jedianne Graham, Danny Lorenzo, Gavin Maier, Kobe Parker, Henri Racine, Tylor Ye, and Judy Zhou.
The graduating seniors were Jed VanCleave, Jonathan Kimyagarov, Donavin Oliva, and Montgomery Zhou.
Congratulations to all the 2017 NYMA graduates!
Individual cadet and family photos will be available soon.
