To the Editor:

What a great day it was for the New Milford High School graduates, class of 2013, June 22 at the O'Neill Center in Danbury.

I was very proud to see my grandson accept his diploma. It was a wonderful day shared by all.

One thing I did not agree with. This was when all the "prestige" schools some of the graduates were going to were mentioned. I'm sure those graduates worked very hard to get accepted to these fine schools.

But how come schools like the University of Connecticut, or Western Connecticut, and other fine schools, were not mentioned?

Just a thought. So, to all you graduates whose schools were not mentioned -- hats off to you.
