AT 104
Louis Forte

Louis Forte, a 104-year old World War
II veteran and Somers resident, received
an honorary diploma from Somers High
School during the 2019 graduation
ceremony on June 24. Forte never
received a high school diploma because
his father passed away and he had to
drop out of school to support his mother.
Accompanied by his granddaughter,
Christa Rotolo, and amid rousing cheers
from the audience, Forte donned a Somers
cap and gown.

“It was a very proud moment,” said
Christa Rotolo. “He was beaming and
enjoyed himself immensely.”

After receiving his diploma, Forte
shook hands with Principal Mark
Bayer, Superintendent Ray Blanch, and
other Somers Central School District
administrators.
