lauralton webMILFORD – Toni Iadarola, president and head of Lauralton Hall High School, presents graduate Grace Healey of Milford with her diploma at the commencement ceremony on June 3 at the school.

Grace's mother, Susan Assenberg Healey, and sisters Taylor Healey and Ellen Healey Storey are all graduates of Lauralton Hall. 

Grace was a member of the school's largest-ever graduating class – 129 students – of the all-girl school. The end of the school year also marked the end of Dr. Iadarola's tenure there and the start of her retirement.

This year’s valedictorian was Rachelle Ambroise of Stratford, who will study chemistry and pre-med at Harvard University. Salutatorian Olivia Rubin of Stamford will attend the University of Notre Dame and plans to major in business analytics. 

The school’s highest honor, the Catherine McAuley Award, was presented to Hope Hottois of Monroe. This annual award is presented to the senior who best demonstrates the Lauralton mission of Mercy values, including compassion, courage, spirit of volunteerism and sound academic performance.
