Class of 2024 Set to Graduate!

Four hundred thirty Revere High School and CityLab Innovation High School seniors will walk the stage at Harry Della Russo Stadium and receive their diplomas as part of the school department’s graduation exercises on Wednesday, June 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 


“There are so many incredible accomplishments among the members of the Class of 2024, and I am extremely proud of all our graduating seniors,” said Revere Public School Superintendent Dr. Dianne Kelly. “Our graduates entered high school at the height of COVID but overcame so many challenges the pandemic presented. Despite beginning high school with so much uncertainty, every one of these students rose above adversity to become successful students, mentors, and leaders and forged friendships and relationships that will last a lifetime.”

Revere High School (RHS) valedictorian Melih Yilmaz, salutatorian Bianca Fiore, and class president Allen Hou will join Mayor Patrick Keefe, Revere Public School Superintendent Kelly, and high school principals Christopher Bowen (RHS) and Stacey Mulligan (CityLab) in welcoming the graduates.

“I am beyond proud of the success our seniors have achieved,” said Principal Bowen. “This class has set records for high numbers of advanced courses taken at the university level and amazing community engagement through service and internships. Additionally, they have worked hard to improve the culture and community at Revere High School by creating new student leadership opportunities. The Class of 2024 has absolutely left its mark on Revere Schools!”

Revere Public Schools seniors have received over $140,000 in local scholarships, and many will receive other scholarships and financial aid from the colleges they plan to attend.

“I am overwhelmed with joy and pride when we look at the achievements of the Class of 2024,” said Principal Mulligan. “They have persevered through many challenges and should feel delighted when they look back at the work they have put in over the last few years. This year alone, CityLab seniors combined earned over 215 college credits. That is an outstanding accomplishment!”
