301 graduate from Beaufort High Thursday night; ceremony moved indoors

tbarton@beaufortgazette.comJune 6, 2013 

The 301 students of Beaufort High School's Class of 2013 graduated Thursday in a ceremony in the school's gymnasium. The ceremony was moved inside this afternoon because of heavy rains expected as a result of Tropical Storm Andrea.

Seniors received four tickets each to give to friends and family who want to attend the ceremony. Only those with tickets will be admitted to the gymnasium. The overflow crowd will be housed in the school's performing arts center.

Total amount of scholarship money earned by graduates: $8.6 million

Speakers: Principal Corey Murphy, valedictorian and salutatorian

Valedictorian: Adam Lipsitz earned a 5.149 grade point average and plans to study engineering at Clemson University.

Salutatorian: Michael Cook earned a 5.123 grade point average and plans to attend the University of South Carolina Honors College, with nursing as his probable career field.

From the principal: "Congratulations to the Class of 2013. This will be my first class to graduate from Beaufort High and will always be remembered for their high academic and athletic achievements. From a record-high 12 Senior Scholars, four Heritage Scholarship winners, and three National Merit Scholarship finalists to a state-championship wrestler, five track state champions, and seven athletic scholarships ... these students have solidified their place in BHS History. I look forward to following this amazing group of young citizens as they move into the next and even more challenging phase of their lives, be it college, the military, or the workforce." -- Corey Murphy
