Rainy River High School hosted its graduation ceremony last Wednesday night with 26 graduates, including two Alternative Education students.
The night was made special by the staff, administration, and, most importantly, the students.
Not only recognized for their academic and athletic achievements, the students also were able to showcase their talents which made the night personalized and entertaining for all the spectators.
The RRHS band played as the graduates walked onto the stage, which was followed by an amazing performance by the Big Island Drummers (which included graduate Danier Andy).
There also was a break in the night where two graduates, Isaiah Srivastava and Kirsten Horton, showcased their musical talent by playing both acoustic and electric guitar.
Calli Vandenbrand led the class by receiving 11 bursaries/scholarships and shared the role of valedictorian with Kevin Cunningham.
Principal J. Chorney also gave the attendees some laughs by presenting graduate Christopher Stone with book on traffic laws.
“There has never been a more appropriate gift,” emcee Nicole Armstrong said as the room filled with laughter.
The celebratory night concluded with a slide show created by the graduating class, a “Journey” song by the Big Island Drum Group, and the RRHS band doing the recessional.
Good luck on your future endeavours, graduates, and thank you for hosting such a great night!
