District Hosts Summer Commencement Ceremony | Best Of
About 40 students participated in the District's Summer Graduation Ceremony on Friday, August 23, in Central High School's Auditorium. Interim Superintendent Dr. E. Steven Smith was the featured speaker.
"I want to commend you for your courage, for your patience, for your perseverance," Dr. Smith said. "You have reached a point in your life where you are just beginning to take off. I encourage you and I challenge you, don't let this be the end of your learning."
Dr. Smith spoke to graduates about his experience as a life-long learner and encouraged them to continue their own education, no matter the next step in their life.
"I encourage you to do likewise," he said. "Don't give up on yourself. Keep working, keep striving, keep climbing, and reach that last rung on the ladder, and you'll be extremely proud of yourself."
