Dublin High School Class of 2018 Celebrates 48th DHS Commencement

May 31, 2018

DUBLIN, CA–Reminiscent of last year, Dublin’s weather has been unable to decide if it is the tail end of winter or the beginning of summer. Despite chilly, breezy weather, Dublin High School’s Class of 2018 were able to enjoy the 48th DHS commencement ceremony in a brisk 90-minutes. This year’s ceremony used words of Malala Yousafzai for inspiration, “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” Principal Maureen Byrne and Superintendent Dr. Leslie Boozer joined with students and teachers to share messages of hope and activism.


DSC09414-COLLAGEAs was the case last year, Dublin High seniors were able to graduate at home, in Gaels Stadium. The growth in enrollment at DHS brings increased energy and excitement for each graduating class, with stands packed (on both sides this year) with grandparents, parents, siblings and friends. Each name read brings a burst of cheers from across the stadium building to the moment every student waits for – the turning of the tassels and flinging of mortar boards into a cloudless sky.

The event included speeches and presentations by Dublin High School Gael Scholar Shayan Bawaney, Principal Maureen Byrne, School Board Trustee Megan Rouse and Student Leadership. The Dublin High Color Guard and Band, the Dublin High Choir, bagpiper Jeff Campbell and members of the Air Force Color Guard added fanfare to the ceremony. Former Dublin High School teacher Tim Sbranti was the Master of Ceremonies. had the honor and privilege to attend the event, capturing highlights on video including a time-lapse movie of the diploma presentations (40 minutes compressed into 5 minutes):
