Graduation Day for Junior Brevette

It was standing room only in Life Skills on Thursday, March 28, as Leominster High School’s very own, Junior Brevette, graduated from Life Skills.

Students, graduates, family, faculty, and administrators gathered to cheer on one of Leominster’s most endearing students as he officially graduated.

Junior turned 22 on April 1, and his final day of school was Friday, March 29.

Junior has been a monumental part of LHS culture for the past 8 years, always bringing smiles to students’ faces by telling jokes and learning everyone’s name.

One of Junior’s best buddies, senior Natalie Brady said “My favorite thing about Junior is he has such a vast imagination. He controls who he is in countless different “multiverses” and decides what version of Junior he wants to be. He inspires me to become who I want to be and not let anyone tell me otherwise. Junior is by far one of the best people I have ever met and I am so lucky to have had the privilege of knowing him so well during my time at LHS”.

Junior is the reigning half-court champion at Leominster High School, and in 2022 he led the Unified Basketball team to a victory against Fitchburg with a half-court buzzer-beater shot.

At Junior’s Graduation, Mr. Sullivan unfurled a banner that will be hung in the gym commemorating Unified Basketball. At the bottom of the banner is a grid for retired numbers and the only currently retired number is Junior’s.

On Thursday, the Life Skills classroom was packed full of students who wanted to witness their friend receive his diploma.

After graduating, Junior will be looking for a job, hopefully at AIS where he has been volunteering, and he will continue with Best Buddies.

Leominster High’s Best Buddies President senior Dan Simons said, “One thing that makes Junior loved by all is how he always talks to everyone and he makes everyone feel so happy. My first day of freshman year, one of the first people I ever met was Junior, and since then he has been a great friend to myself and many others throughout the entire school.”

Junior will surely be missed everyday, especially in the lunch room when he walks around and says hello to all of his friends. Leominster wishes Junior the best in all his future endeavors and can’t wait to see him again.

Victoria Miele, Reporter
Hello, my name is Victoria Miele and I am a senior at LHS! This year I am in Journalism 2. This summer I attended the Washington Journalism and Media Conference in Washington D.C. where I was able to meet journalists working on Capitol Hill, as well as tour the Capitol Building, and sit in the National Press Club and listen to credited reporters speak about their jobs and day to day lives. Throughout the year I play volleyball, tennis and I snowboard, but I love to read and write. I also work as a Personal Care Assistant for a young girl with SMA and I am a member of student government for the class of 2024, NHS, and I am the Vice President of Best Buddies. My favorite places to be are the library, my church, or playing volleyball with my friends. I am thrilled to be participating in this class and I look forward to the work we will be doing this school year!
