Lyons Township High School graduates not staying put

Most of the 901 students who graduated Sunday from Lyons Township High School aren’t done yet.

Continuing education is in the plans for nearly 98 percent of the graduates, with 64 percent heading to a four-year college, 28 percent to a two-year college, and 5.5 percent heading to vocational or technical schools, or the military.

Some aren’t even staying close to home. The class will spread to 184 different colleges in 34 states, plus Canada, Croatia, Macedonia, Puerto Rico and Singapore.

Speakers at the graduation included Valedictorian Brendan Weibel, retiring School Board President Mark Pera, Class President Paul Nora, Student Council President Sydney Arsenault and Superintendent Timothy Kilrea.

Salutatorian Chloe Tausk opened the ceremony, and class Vice President Stephen Metroff announced the class gift of a stained glass window installed at South Campus in honor of the high school’s 125th anniversary.
