The gift from the Class of 2012 – a nearly life-size knight on a horse – has been delivered and is just inside the gates of Carcieri Field awaiting its permanent placement.
It's sitting just inside the gates of Carcieri Field, a 600-pound, 11-foot-tall statue of an Avenger on a rearing horse – the gift of the Class of 2012. The class recalled by their advisors at graduation last June as being larger than life has left a gift that will ensure they will not soon be forgotten. The metal statue came from Wynn Betts in Colorado. It was sent to Texas to have the Avenger welded in place and then driven across country in a U-Haul. It arrived in January. "I feel this was the perfect gift for our Class of 2012 to give to the school," said Chris Millman, class treasurer, via email. "By our senior year, we truly embodied the school spirit of true Avengers. It is symbolic for the growth and ability that all students …

Never a class to go quietly, the audience is reminded, the East Greenwich High School Class of 2012 leaves with spirit.
Leave it to the Class of 2012 to do it their way – from the two graduates who needed to receive their diplomas early to compete in the track and field state championships to the extraordinary "handshake" between Class President Christopher Millman and Class Valedictorian Daniel Ling. This class of 185 graduates was never content with the status quo. As Class Advisor Marta Chace reminded the crowd, this class arrived at the high school large and in charge. Graduation was the culmination of this class's journey and, not surprisingly, it was as exuberant and entertaining as billed. Graduation took place at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence, before a packed and very friendly home crowd Sunday afternoon, June 3. It started off with …

The designation means the East Greenwich High School senior gets to speak at graduation.
Ben Pallant was happy to be named salutatorian for the East Greenwich High School Class of 2012. But he knows it’s an honor. “There’re great people in my class and there’s a whole number of them who could of earned this spot,” he said in a recent interview.

One of the final hurdles to graduation.
You know it’s Senior Project presentation day when the wrinkled sweatshirts are shed for ties, the muddy sneakers traded for heels, and tensions are running high in the cramped hallways. Last Wednesday, more than 50 members of the class of 2012 presented their projects to a panel of judges for a numerical score. Designed to stretch the learning experiences of seniors, Senior Project has been part of the senior experience for 6 years now and it is a requisite for graduation from East Greenwich High School. Projects this year ranged from creating a special-edition bracelet for Alex and Ani to learning to play a banjo. They all are required to push the student outside of his or her comfort zone to experience something new. While students …
