Nick Offerman, Commencement Speaker
The weather was perfect on Friday, May 29 as graduating students, their friends and family gathered at the school for Open House. Soon, the press showed up…and then Nick Offerman arrived. (For the few who might not know, Nick Offerman is an actor, writer, humorist and woodworker best known for playing Ron on the TV show “Parks and Recreation”.) Offerman toured the school, talking to students and marveling at their work before everyone processed to Old North Church for the ceremony. As guest speaker for the event, Offerman delivered a talk that included praise, encouragement and, nor surprisingly, humor.
