Watch: In Wake of Murphy Lawsuit, Students at Wayne Valley High School Host their Own Graduation

WAYNE, NJ – After Governor Phil Murphy took action against the township of Wayne, New Jersey to block a high school graduation, the students of Wayne Valley High School took matters into their own hands and did it on their own.  No Phil Murphy.  No Gurbir Grewal. No State Police intervention.   Just a bunch of high school seniors giving themselves their own graduation ceremony.

After Mayor Chris Vergano said the township would host the ceremony after the Board of Education floundered on the matter, Governor Phil Murphy stepped in and sued Mayor Vergano and the township to stop the event from happening.

Last night, the students held their own ceremony and in defiance of Governor Murphy and in protest.  Approximately 200 of the 305 graduating seniors attended the ceremony.
