Congratulations: Complete list of 2022 graduates of Pelham Memorial High School

Centennial Commencement Exercises

June 25, 2022

Congratulations to the class of 2022 of Pelham Memorial High School! They were celebrated on Saturday during the Centennial Commencement Exercises at PMHS, the event that also capped a year honoring 100 years of history at the high school. Knowledge, experiences, achievements, friendships. The graduates have so much to show from their four years earning a high school diploma. And they demonstrated incredible resilience, fortitude and imagination in working through, over and around the obstacles created by the pandemic. The class of 2022 has been rising above Covid-19’s challenges since their sophomore year. All of us at the Pelham Examiner are glad they had a largely normal year—some new normal, some plain old normal. We wish all of the graduates the best as they move on to summer and the excitement of life’s next great adventure.
