Distinguished Graduates Honored

Distinguished Graduates Honored at Annual Dinner
Posted on 10/05/2018
From a Grammy Award-Winning musician to a former New York Supreme Court Justice -- Binghamton High School celebrated a few of its distinguished graduates Thursday night. Andy Hall, from The Infamous Stringdusters, was one of the many honored.
Hall said when he was a student he never thought he'd come back to BHS as an honoree.
"The arts program here was helpful to me, but I wasn't the best student," Hall said. "I had my struggles, so no. I didn't imagine I'd be back, but it's really cool to be back. Like I said, the best thing for me is to try and meet with students."
Hall did meet with students Wednesday. He said if he can be inspiration to them, then he'll do what he can to help. Watch the story on WICZ.
