Port Chester High Class Of 2011 Graduates

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – Helena Lewis still remembers 15 years ago when the Port Chester Police’s youth officer knocked on her front door asking to register her three-year old daughter Kelby for school. “I told him she was too young and he said it was never too early to register,” said Lewis, sitting in the stands Ryan Stadium on her daughter’s graduation day. Port Chester High’s Class of 2011 had its commencement ceremony Saturday, June 25, which was rescheduled from the day before due to the weather.

The morning started off overcast as the 241 graduates filed out onto the football field, the young women in white caps and gowns and the young men in royal blue. The sun slowly broke through the clouds as students and guests gave speeches, and was out completely by the time diplomas were conferred. “This is an accomplishment for everyone, a milestone,” said Lewis. “The first of many.” Kelby, like many of her classmates, will be going on to college. She has been accepted to Virginia State and wants to study criminal justice. “My mom worked extremely hard to get me where I am today,” said Kelby. “She pushed me hard, but I’m glad she did.”
