On June 14th, we welcomed 30 new students to our TCS Alumni community as the class of 2024 graduated, bringing our alumni count to over 2,000 alumni!

This class is special not only because they put us over the 2,000 alumni mark, but also because they have gifts and talents that God has given them that they have used well throughout their high school career. This class has been involved in athletics, band, choir, debate, theater, NHS, STEM Scholars Program, TA, and more!

The class of 2024 has four students who have completed the entirety of their education at TCS from Kindergarten to 12th grade, Jacob Dyer, Willow Portee, Sylvia Praveen, and Dylan Spivey. They also have three second generation TCS students, Michael Nelson whose mother is Barb Nelson, class of ‘94, Nya Davis whose mother is Nicole Agel, class of ‘00’s, and Dylan Spivey, whose mother is Lesley Hobson, who attended TCS in middle school.

This was a very high achieving academic class as we had two salutatorians, Jacob Dyer and Aaron Sintha. Our valedictorian was Alana Holmes who reminisced on the days her and her classmates spent in the halls of TCS.

There were several awards given out that came with scholarships for the students. The Wendy Gall Technology Award, sponsored by Sara Chipps, class of 1999, was given to Grace Andersen with a $5,000 scholarship. Matthew Amisial received the Thrivent Award which comes with a $1,000 scholarship. Jonathan Walker received the Piscataway African American Seniors Club Award with a $1,000 scholarship. Jacob Dyer and Justin Cooper received the Evergreen Financial Award and a $500 scholarship each.

The graduation speaker this year was Dr. Kevin Hsu. Dr. Hsu is a TCS alum, class of 1994. He spoke on his experience at TCS and thanked teachers like Mr. McKay who made an impact on his life. He shared personal stories and explained how he cruised through his college classes because he was taught so well and felt well versed in the information. You can read more of his story and why he loves TCS here.

The class closed out the program remembering their time in the Dominican Republic as they sang their class song “Gracia Sublime Es.” Miss McKay presented the students with their diplomas, Dean Rodriguez prayed a blessing and dedication over the graduates, and Miss Arnesen presented the graduating class!
