Members of the Mattituck High School Class of 2016 turned their tassels and tossed their caps Saturday at the school’s 102 annual commencement ceremony.

The graduating class of more than 115 walked off to the sound of David Bowie’s “Changes,” never to return to the school again as seniors.

The morning ceremony included speeches from valedictorian Katherine Hoeg and salutatorian Jack Dufton, who you can read more about here. For more on the entire Class of 2016 pick up this week’s edition of The Suffolk Times on newsstands Thursday.
