Cate School, Class of 2009

Cate School graduates 62 seniors at its May 24 commencement ceremony

Cate School graduated 62 seniors during its May 24 commencement ceremony.

In the words of student commencement speaker Madelynn Johnston, “Before starting school at Cate, I was overwhelmed by not knowing. But now I can’t wait to find out more. ... So here we are, at the brink, a watershed moment of our lives. It’s time to step forward once again into the unknown, because we have so much more to learn.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
