“It’s the best soil in the whole country,” Mr. Daniels, the school’s maintenance mechanic, said this week. “You can’t find soil like this anywhere else.”

Bernstein Inspires Grads

Hannah Tuma, Pierson High School’s valedictorian, urged her classmates to continue taking risks. Emily Hallock, the salutatorian, called on the seniors to be passionate and set a good example for others. And Carl Bernstein, the veteran investigative journalist and keynote speaker during Saturday’s graduation ceremonies in Sag Harbor, had a lot of his own wisdom to share.

“Seek out the best information, the best obtainable version of the truth.”

“Don’t be too polite, cause some trouble if you think it’s the right kind of trouble. Courageous trouble, adventurous trouble.”
