Harrison County schools held their graduation ceremonies this past weekend, with students from Missouri Valley, Boyer Valley, Logan-Magnolia, West Harrison and Woodbine celebrating the close of one chapter and the beginning of a new one.
Many seniors and their families were filled with emotion during and after their ceremonies, as the work put in to get to that point is a testament to not only the students, but the families and communities that stand behind them as a source of guidance.
Our staff at the Times-News has enjoyed chronicling the growth and accomplishments of our area seniors, and we are confident that they have much more to accomplish in the near and distant future.
Students have displayed their gifts through athletics, fine arts, student government, clubs and various other activities, both inside and outside of school, and are deserving of a day to take everything in one last time at the school they’ve spent so much time in for the past four years, and the district that has been their home for more than a decade.
Those gifts will now be on display at various colleges and trade schools, or in whatever career graduates choose to pursue immediately.
Whether they be a Red, Panther, Bulldog, Hawkeye or Tiger, those who moved their tassel from one side to the other can be proud of themselves and the class of 2023 for all of the hard work that went into reaching the day they made the walk to receive their diploma.
For the class of 2024, a standard has been set. We at the Times-News look forward to all the great things you will do next year.
But for now, let’s have one more round of applause for the class of 2023.
