At Hillsborough High School’s graduation Saturday, one graduate stood out. At 95, he's older than even the faculty at his ceremony. “Joe Perricone is a member of the Hillsborough High School class of 1943,” Principal Gary Brady explained at the ceremony. Perricone got his diploma in 1943, but he missed his graduation. Before the school year ended, he'd already enlisted in the Army. He deployed to Europe to fight in World War II.
