The White River High class of 2012 crossed the stage of the White River Amphitheatre for commencement exercises Thursday.
The weather was rainy and windy, but inside the amphitheater it was sunny smiles and proud parents as 276 seniors were presented with their diplomas – the 107th White River graduating class.
“There is a great sense of excitement and anticipation as I present these seniors to you this evening as they arrive at the end of their 13-year educational journey,” Principal Mike Hagadone said.
During the ceremony each of the valedictorians spoke, talking about their years of school, friends and the future.
Valedictorians included Kelly Coyle, Cassidy France, Zoe Judson, Mikaela Kilcup, Joshua Miller, Hannah Miltimore and Chloe Sharp.
Hagadone stated among the many accomplishments of the class both scholastically and on the field of athletics, he was most proud of the fact the White River seniors had an “on-time graduation rate of 91 percent.” The graduation rate is considerably higher than the national average.
“Pomp and Circumstance” was played by the White River High band and the school choir sang “Go the Distance.”
The final farewell and tassel-turning ceremony was lead by class president Sharp and vice president Zach Kelley.
