Congratulations to the Class of 2015

Class of 2015The Hudson School (THS) in Hoboken N.J. celebrated the graduation of the 2015 class of twenty-four seniors in the beautiful Bissinger Room overlooking the Hudson at Stevens Institute.

Mrs. Newman, Hudson’s founder and director, reminisced about the long and friendly association between Hudson and Stevens, citing a time when The Hudson School spent three weeks in the Bissinger Room conducting classes while repairs were being made to their portion of the Library building on Park Avenue, Hudson’s first home.

She remarked with pride at the long road Hudson School has traveled in a relatively short time. Hudson moved one block to a permanent home in the old Martha Institute Building on the corner of Sixth and Park in 2002 and the high school has grown from five students in its first year (1995), to this year’s graduating class of twenty-four. As the names were read aloud by college counselor Gene Noce, the students rose to receive their diplomas. Guests were impressed by the fine schools these students were planning to attend.  (See college acceptances and merit scholarships information below.)

Hudson graduating senior Myles Zhang, the closing speaker, spoke gratefully about his time at THS and the place that Hudson School will always have in his heart. He reminded his classmates that each year when they returned from summer vacation, Mrs. Newman would be at the door of the school to “welcome us home.” His message was simple, yet profound.

“No matter what changes occur, in us, or in this school, Hudson will always be our home.”

Myles’ words echoed the feelings of all the graduates as well as those whose long associations with THS have made it a second home to them as well: parents, faculty and friends of the school. This graduating class comprised of talented and hard-working writers, scientists, actors, artists and business-minded individualists, will long be remembered with fondness, and will surely be missed.

“I want to thank you for the beautiful graduation; it was truly the most meaningful ceremony of that type that I have ever attended. The students really led the way with song, poetry and moving speeches. The setting was also magnificent – a day to cherish. …Thank you for all of the support that you gave to my daughter during good times and more challenging ones. You never gave up on her and she is thriving.  Hudson is a gem of a school.” – Parent of a graduate in the Class of 2015
