The graduating class took part in the historic Academy’s 152nd Com- mencement Exercises on Sunday, June 5, 2022, inside the John Lock- wood Auditorium Theatre, named for Adelphi’s founder. The new graduates are looking forward to continuing their academic careers in college and pursuing a variety of rewarding career paths. Class of 2022 Valedictorian Isaac delivered a powerful address at the Commencement highlighting the importance of receiving a well- rounded education through academ- ics as well as student involvement. He spoke of his own personal Adelphi journey (dating all the way back to Lower School!), during which he made sure to truly experi- ence Adelphi by becoming an active member of the Academy’s many extracurricular activities while maintaining academic excellence. He joined the Student Advisory Board in 9th grade and remained on the board for the entirety of his high school career, developing strong leadership skills from an early age. He used those skills to earn the title of Associate Editor of The Adelphi Oracle in his senior year, as well as to moderate the popular Brain Games Club. He was inducted into Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn’s Chapter of the Quill & Scroll International Honor Society for High School Journalists in his junior year and was a key member of the Acade- my’s Journalism Club. Where Isaac truly shined, how- ever, was on stage as a member of Adelphi’s Theater Arts Program, for which he appeared in 11 shows during his time at Adelphi. During the Commencement exercises, the talented singer per- formed a moving rendition of Frank Sinatra’s classic song “Fly Me to the Moon” that brought many in attendance to tears.
