POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Seven students from Dutchess County graduated from Oakwood Friends School June 10.

They are among a graduating class of 34.

Miles Fah and Benjamin Whipple , of Beacon, have been at Oakwood Friends since sixth grade.

Daniel Barletta of Hopewell Junction began in seventh grade, and Sumayah Harrell , of Poughkeepsie, in ninth grade.

Caleb Schneiderman and Amani Harrell , both of Poughkeepsie, started in tenth grade.

Zoe Huff, of Pawling, began as a junior.

Oakwood Friends School, founded in 1796, is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory day and boarding school serving grades 6-12.

A dinner was held the night before with faculty, friends and family, followed by a candlelit Quaker meeting for worship, where participants were invited to speak extemporaneously.

All Oakwood students attended the June 12 graduation ceremony where each of the graduates spoke individually.
