Finally, a year back to normal for our graduating seniors. After participating in all the traditional grad celebrations, like the Promenade, Prom, After Prom, and the new class dinner, it was down to one more event to share with each other – graduation day on Sunday, May 23.
School Board President, Jennifer Pantry, presented twenty-six diplomas to one of the smallest graduating classes in several years. Our local clubs and organizations give back generously to our community with scholarships to our graduates, and this year was no exception, as representatives were on hand to present the outstanding grads with their scholarships.
