Century graduates crossed the stage in front of family and friends to receive their diplomas at McDaniel College Friday.
Principal Andrew Cockley told the class in his welcome that "tonight is a beginning."
Class President Kendell Caracciolo addressed her classmates as well as social studies teacher Anne Dorwart.
Dowart told the class that the year started with a bang--a hurricane that delayed school and an earthquake. There were no snow days, but their last day of school they were held one hour and 40 minutes for a tornado.
During her speech she had a spirit check and the class clapped and yelled "let's go Knights."
Board of Education members Barbara Shreeve and Cynthia Foley awarded the diplomas.
