Juliana Kemenosh, Valedictorian, had some praise for her fellow graduates at Ocean City High School. “Each and every student has done something exceptional and unique in their own right,” said Kemenosh. “Our athletes, our arts and science students and our musicians are all at the very top.

On Saturday morning while many prepared to hit the beach, the Ocean City Gardens Civic Associate held a service to honor our Ocean City Veterans. The event was highlighted by the dedication of a bronze plaque, located near the foot of the Longport Bridge, honoring all those who have served in the Armed Forces. The sun was shining and a brisk wind whipped across the entrance to Ocean City setting the stage for a memorable event. Approximately 50 people attended the ceremony. Many in the crowd were veterans themselves and members of our local VFW and American Legion. Others were there out of respect for the great sacrifices endured by our military personnel.
