Dover-Foxcroft – COVID-19 took away a lot of “lasts” for the Class of 2020 all across the country. It took away final gathering, final assemblies, final proms, and final last days of school, but it did not Foxcroft Academy’s Class of 2020 Commencement Exercises.
Graduation was held on Saturday, June 27th for the Class of 2020 on Oakes Field at Foxcroft Academy. Over 75 members of the graduating class were in attendance, dawning the maroon and white for one final time, under partly cloudy, late June skies.
The graduation speakers included Ethan Curtis, Class of 2020 Valedictorian, Clark LaChance, Class of 2020 Salutatorian, Mr. Wayne Strout, faculty speaker, Dr. Mark Stitham ’68, guest speaker, Dr. Richard Swett, Chairman of the FA Board of Trustees, and Mr. Arnold Shorey, FA Head of School.
Each graduate sat in their own socially distanced area, surrounded by family.
