PEABODY — One hundred forty-three newly minted graduates from 32 different cities and towns received their diplomas last night at Bishop Fenwick High School.
Jodi Vigneron, a spokeswoman for the private Catholic school in Peabody, said every member of the Class of 2014 has been accepted into a college or university, and they’ve been offered in total more than $15 million in merit scholarships from higher learning institutions across the country.
This year’s valedictorian was Sara Malala of Lynnfield; Eric Loehle of Georgetown was the salutatorian. Peabody residents Arianna Maida and Ayla Callahan served as the class president and vice president, respectively, while Nicholas Coccoluto of Saugus was the class treasurer and secretary.
Prior to commencement, the entire senior class spent two weeks in May at individual service projects in the area. Vigneron also said one senior is a National Merit Finalist and two others are National Merit Commended Students.
