A dory delivered as a senior prank decorates an entrance to the old Nauset High School building. On the port side the boat is painted with some of Principal Patrick Clark’s watchwords: “Slow and Safe.” Mortarboards fly into the air as the 2023 graduates at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School celebrate their moment on June 3. Declan Mackinaw of Brewster makes the Nauset graduation bubblier. Nico Harrington, a basketball star from North Truro, stands head and shoulders above his classmates as they march into the ceremonies accompanied by the NRHS bands and orchestra.
