Memorial Weekend in Sheridan County has also meant graduation ceremonies for the past several years.
Saturday, fifteen students graduated from Fort Mackenzie High School in the Early Auditorium of the Jr. High. Resource Officer Dan White spoke, Danielle Wenzel was Valedictorian and Amanda Corley was Salutatorian. School District 2 Board Chair Bill Bradshaw handed out diplomas as English teacher Sharon Bedard shared highlights of each graduate.
Three schools held their ceremonies on Sunday. Even though the area received a downpour Saturday, blue skies and bright sun allowed the Sheridan High School Commencement to be held outdoors at Homer Scott Field. 203 seniors received their diplomas. Megan Jenkins was Valedictorian; Althea Wallop was Salutatorian.
37 students graduated from Tongue River High School, with Patrick O'Harra serving as Commencement speaker. Andrew Orchard was Valedictorian and Kirsty MacMillan was Salutatorian. Scholarships were also awarded at Tongue River's Commencement, and a slide show presentation highlighted each graduate's life from childhood.
At Big Horn High School, Bobby St. John gave the Commencement Address to 34 graduates. Valedictorian was Elizabeth Gilbert; Philip “Junior” Kane was Salutatorian. Big Horn's class motto is “Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking.”
Sheridan County School District 3 held their graduation ceremony a week ago, and District 3 students have been out of school for a week, as well.
