High honors student Kristina Krautblatt of Brigantine, who achieved a perfect 4.0 average, delivered the class farewell. Krautblatt earned an associate degree in psychology. She shared with graduates how she did not begin her college career until 20 years after high school, and did not want a traditional life. “I didn’t feel like high school was teaching me what I wanted to learn, and I thought college would be four more years of the same.

Our fears, attitudes, and beliefs about ourselves and the world around us are not set in stone! We can continue to grow and learn at any age.” Continue reading
