Graduation Ceremony 2021: List of graduates from Paul V. Moore High School in Central Square; meet 2 best students

It’s graduation time.

The 2021 high school students have experienced a lot of things: distance learning; being forced to wear masks; shorten or cancel sports seasons, musicals and concerts; and a lot of uncertainty. They had to distance themselves from their friends and teachers for months.

Even through it all, they did what was necessary to make it to the end of the school year.

To celebrate the 2021 class, we’re posting graduate lists from over 60 schools in central New York City.

We will point out who is the promotion major and the salutatorian (or in some cases alternates) and give them the opportunity to share some thoughts on school, the pandemic, family and life. The major of promotion and the salutatorian of this school are below the list of graduates.

The Post-Standard will be releasing a high school graduation souvenir section on Sunday, June 28. If you wish, you can place a congratulations announcement for a graduate you would like to honor in category. The section will include lists of 2021 graduates from Onondaga County schools, Q&A with each school’s promotion major and Salvatorian, and more. Companies also have the option of advertising in the diploma section. You can reach us at this E-mail and we will get back to you.


The senior graduation ceremony for Paul V. Moore High School in Central Square is scheduled for Friday, June 25, 2021, at the high school stadium. Due to Covid restrictions, ceremonies will take place at different times of the day.

Promotion major

Last name: Sara Syrell

City: Brewerton

Parents: Tina and Chris Syrell

My projects for the next few years: I will be attending Binghamton University to get my BSc in Biology, and I will also participate in their first year research immersion program.

My career plans: After completing my bachelor’s degree, I plan to attend pharmacy school to earn my doctorate in pharmacy.

The highlight of my last year: I don’t have a big highlight from my last year, but I am grateful for the times I got to see my teachers in person and my loved ones and I stayed safe. I look forward to the end of year events that my school now plans as the restrictions are lifted.

The person who inspired me the most: The people who have inspired me the most in life are my parents; they are my staunch supporters. They showed me the importance of having a strong work ethic and the ability to persevere in the face of difficulties, while maintaining balance in life and never losing my sense of humor.

What I do to relax or unwind: To relax, I like to listen to music, take long car trips and hang out with my friends. Throughout my high school studies, I was very involved in student government and community outreach activities. I have also participated a lot in musical programs, such as fanfare, fanfare, harmony orchestra and small ensembles.

The word or phrase that best describes my personality: Diligent

My advice to our promotion: Don’t get carried away by what you can’t control. Things will never be perfect, but we can always make the most of any situation.

The best part about social distancing: The best part about the pandemic and social distancing has been seeing the community spirit and the care that people have for each other. Whether it’s applauding our essential workers or helping a neighbor in need, people have gone above and beyond to help each other during this difficult time.

The biggest impact of the pandemic on my last year: The biggest impact of the pandemic in my senior year has been on the ability to spend time with my peers. By the time I go to college, it will be almost a year and a half since I set foot in a classroom. I really missed seeing my friends and teachers every day.

The only thing I hope to accomplish in my life: One thing that I hope to accomplish in my life is to have a career that I find personally fulfilling and that makes a difference in the lives of others.
