Ms. Olivia Marshall is graduating from William Patterson University (WPU) this spring with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Communication and majoring in Media Production. While at WPU, she was a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success, worked at the campus bookstore and student safety patrol, and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity. In her time at Craig High, Olivia played on every sports team, attended every school dance, and joined every Stepping Out. Her perfect record still stands today. Below is a quote from Olivia’s mom, Dr. Marshall. We are so proud of Olivia!
“Olivia has had epilepsy since she was 2 years old. Over her lifetime she has been resuscitated twice and had to learn to walk and talk twice. We were told when she was about 10 that she would never be able to learn how to read. Thanks to the Craig School not only did she learn to read, but she also learned how to learn!” Dr. Brenda Marshall
Married to a naval officer. Currently district manager for a company that runs Salons and barbershops on military bases. Also running a Jr. Stylist and Barber program. Has traveled the world with the navy, including Japan. Dianna writes, “...I wish there were more schools like Craig simply because I have a child that would benefit greatly from the hands-on learning and wonderful environment Craig has. The school puts its students first and wants all of us to succeed and because of Craig I was able to find myself as a person and carry on what my teachers did for me to my child. From the learning tools to self-love Craig continues to shine through in my household.”

Graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2019 with his business management degree. Currently pursuing his Sports Industry Management Masters at Georgetown University trying to pursue a career in sports as a scout. "My favorite memory from Craig is the people I met there. Not just the students but the teachers like Mrs. Reese, Mrs. Ranieri, Mr. Furlong, Mr. Snowdon and so many more had such a huge impact on my life. I still come and visit every chance I get and am always welcomed with open arms. Honestly, one of my favorite memories is when I came back and coached the basketball and lacrosse team for two years. Making an impact on those kids' lives and giving back to a school that gave so much to me was a dream come true. Truly one of the best times in my life."
