By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - As the 59 students comprising Notre Dame's Class of 2012 walked down the aisle Friday evening, a veritable sea of blue and gold, they carried with them more than $5 million in scholarships and grants.

"We are so proud of our students," said Sister Anna Mae Collins, the school's principal. "At Notre Dame, the administration, faculty and staff pride themselves in educating well-rounded students - academically, socially, culturally and spiritually."

The commencement speaker for Friday's ceremony was Oneida County Court Judge Barry Donalty, who is a 1964 graduate of the school.

Sister Anna Mae Collins says that 99 percent of the graduating class is going on to college, many of them with enough credits to start as a second semester.

Leading the class were valedictorian Joseph Caldwell and salutatorian Frank Tamburrino.
