As the 2017-2018 school year comes to an end, the 2018 Senior Class ended their time in high school and graduated on Sunday, May 20.

The graduation ceremony was about two hours, starting at 2 p.m. with a welcome from Morgan Johnson, Senior Class president, and Jaylie Postlewait, Student Council president. The band then played “Pomp and Circumstance” while the Senior Class of 2018 and faculty took their seats.

After the processional, there was another greeting, followed by the senior Eagle Scouts’ presentation of colors and the national anthem sung by the senior choir.

Clint Albers, principal, gave a short speech before the band played their senior song.

The scholastic top 10 students were acknowledged and gave their speeches, which were limited to two minutes each. These students were Qays Abu-Saymeh, Hannah Carney, Tristan DeLeon, Jillian Dwyer, Nathan Erickson, Jordan Farr, Jackson Ness, Natalie Roberts, Alexius Schmidt, and Peter Winslow.

After the senior speakers, the choir sang their senior song and the alma mater.

After the alma mater, it was time for the seniors to walk across the stage and receive their diplomas as faculty members read names.

Although many graduates walked across the stage last Sunday, more seniors started off the year here. Some may have moved away, and others may have graduated after first semester.
