Each student received a standing ovation from those in attendance. They were also presented with certificates before being commended by Superintendent = Ralph Ferrie.

“This is a major accomplishment in your high school career. Nothing that is worth celebrating is accomplished without enduring tests of personal strength and commitment, which obviously each of you have,” Ferrie said. “We are proud of your accomplishments and we are confident that you’ll take the lessons learned at your high schools wherever your life’s journey will take you.”
