'Unplug': Andover High grads urged to listen to each other, leave technology behind


“Unplug,” Parker said. “Listen to each other.”

“Nobody wants to see pictures of your food anyway,” he joked.

Superintendent Marinel McGrath also bestowed some advice for the recent graduates from her father, who passed away a few weeks ago.

“Never be afraid,” McGrath said. “Never be afraid of raising the standard. Never be afraid of not succeeding.”

“Like all good dads, his advice has been spot on,” she later said.

Most of the 439 graduates will be attending college in the fall, heading to George Washington University, University of Delaware and Assumption College, to name a few.

“Today is a celebration of us. We came together during the toughest of times,” Dellatto said. “Please do something awesome so I can say I went to high school with that kid.”
