AHS '21 class graduates outdoors

AHS class gift, 2021Framed painting of former AHS entrance, with signatures, by Genevieve Baldwin.

UPDATED, June 7: As the new Arlington High School rises majestically along Mass. Ave., shielding the old white columns familiar to the town, the class of 2021 emerged from 15 months lost to Covid-19 and graduated at Peirce Field at noon Saturday, June 5. See the building's progress >> 

Read the available graduation addresses >>

Among them was one by Genevieve Baldwin, who created the class gift, a painting. See more photos >>

Her mother, Pamela Baldwin, told YourArlington on June 6: "As we say goodbye to AHS it’s inevitably a time of reflection and nostalgia, and we are among those in town who will really miss the beautiful view of the State-House-inspired Collomb building set back on the stately lawn."

She is referring to her daughters, Genevieve and Louisa, both of whom graduated June 5.
