West Orange High School Seniors Say Goodbye in Special Year End Video and Drive Through

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Prior to their virtual graduation on June 23, seniors had the opportunity to drive through the West Orange High School campus amidst the cheers of their teachers and administrators, board members, and Mayor Robert Parisi.


Decorated cars, blue and white balloons, and beeping horns punctuated the procession of the soon-to-be graduates as they snaked their way from Alisa Drive, past the soccer field, and on to the Conforti entrance, where Principal Hayden Moore, Mayor Parisi, and board members Ken Alper, Terry Trigg-Scales, Jennifer Tunnicliffe, and Gary Rothstein stood with teachers.


West Orange High School Enivronmental Science teacher and Photography Club advisor Pete Ficuciello videoed the drive-through as well as a labor of love that offered seniors the ability to share their end-of-year thoughts. Both videos appear below.
