THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, June 18, 2021 Page 11 MVRCS holds 16th annual commencement M ALDEN – Mystic Valley Regional Charter School (MVRCS) held its 16th annual commencement on June 11 as 85 young men and women became proud graduates in a ceremony on the Eastern Avenue turf. Samantha Tsang, a member of the Class of 2021, began the evening with a stirring rendition of the National Anthem. Valedictorian Jessica Li and Salutatorian Alexa Gibson addressed the crowd. Following the awarding of diplomas by Director/Superintendent Alexander Dan, Assistant Superintendent Christopher Finn and Assistant Director Matthew Stone, each student received a copy of the U.S. Constitution and George Washington’s Rules of Civility. Dan left the graduates with an inspirational and thought-provoking charge urging them to guard the truths they have been granted and to take the foundation they have acquired at Mystic Valley and build upon it. Members of the Class of 2021 combined to garner nearly $1.4 million worth of full or partial scholarships and direct-merit based grants.
