Our alumni from the classes of 1970, 1971 and 1972 are invited to be honored guests at Chatham’s Class of 2022 commencement. Having graduates from 50 years prior be part of the ceremony is a long-held tradition at Chatham graduations. Due to the pandemic, that tradition was put on hold in 2020 and 2021, so alumni who celebrated their 50-year anniversary in those years as well as those who will in 2022 are invited to be part of this year’s ceremony.
Commencement for the Class of 2022 is Friday, June 24 at 6:00 p.m., followed by a graduation parade through the Village of Chatham immediately following the ceremony. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by contacting Diane Hammon in the superintendent’s office at 518-392-1502 or email@example.com
