  • Lt. Robert S. Cragin Jr., class of 1962
  • Lt. Vernon F. Hovey III, class of 1964
  • Pfc. Richard W. Starkey, class of 1965

In addition, faculty and staff members who served in the military will individually recognize students from the class of 2019 who will be entering the military upon graduation.

A performance by the Niskayuna High School Concert Band and the Bel Canto Voices also will be part of the ceremony.
