Cosmo Uttero, World War II Veteran and WHS Class of 2021 Graduate

June 7, 2021 (Wellesley, MA) – The Wellesley High School Class of 2021 includes 390 outstanding seniors and one extraordinary senior citizen. On Friday, June 4, 97-year old Cosmo Uttero received his Wellesley High School diploma, 78 years after he left WHS to enlist in the United States Army. Adding to the significance, the graduation ceremony took place on the very same weekend where 77 years ago Cosmo, a decorated World War II veteran, landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy, France on D-Day.

For Cosmo, the chance to finally receive his high school diploma is among the highlights of his life. “I think I’ve pretty much done it all,” he said. “I went back to Normandy in 2014, and now this. I guess you could say it’s the final nail in my coffin,” he joked.
