Class to graduate with grace
Another year come and gone, and on June 1 Ponoka Composite High School’s grade 12 class will graduate.
The ceremony will take place at Ponoka’s curling rink at 7 p.m. The doors will open to the public at 6 p.m.
The graduation banquet will be held on June 2.
This year’s class will have not one but two valedictorians; Kit Christopher and Taylor Kim.
“The valedictorians averages are so close,” Wendy Fessler, academic and career councilor, said. “At one point we calculated and it was like, 93.4 per cent.”
Guest speakers included in the ceremonies will be comprised of Jayson Lovell, who is a representative from Wolf Creek central office and assistant superintendent, Lorrie Jess from the board of trustees and Jerel Peters, a youth pastor from Wolf Creek Youth for Christ. Peters has worked closely with youth from the school.
This year’s classes theme is Remember When and the graduation song is Young by Kenny Chesney.
“It’s been a great class. They have been leaders the whole time and have never complained,” Fessler said.
