High school graduations begin Saturday

-- — It’s tassel time as graduates will pour out of five area high schools during the next two weekends.

• Milan High School seniors will receive their diplomas Saturday, May 26, at 10 a.m. in the gym. The ceremonies open with the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance” and close with “Sine Nomine” performed by the band.

After a welcome by principal Paul Ketcham, the salutatorian and valedictorian (there could be more than one top student in each category) will deliver speeches, according to guidance secretary Bonnie Walker.

Superintendent Dr. Thomas Reale will recognize the Class of 1952 and make other remarks. Then he will present diplomas to about 92 graduates, followed by class President Jessica Strassell leading the changing of the tassels.

Seniors chose Jay-Z’s “Forever Young” as their song. Their motto is a quote from Charles Schulz: “Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” The class flower is a teal carnation, and teal, black and silver are their colors.

• Jac-Cen-Del High School’s 67 seniors will turn their tassels  Saturday, May 26, at 2 p.m.,  according to principal Johnny Budd.

The Class of 1962 will be honored and a representative will speak. According to Budd, “They have put up memorabilia in our cafeteria display cases,” such as old prom dresses, letter jackets and movie tickets.

Band and chorus members will perform selections during the ceremony, which will be held in the gym. The valedictorian and salutatorian will address classmates.

Superintendent William Narwold and Budd will present the diplomas.

Class of 2012 members chose the plumeria   as their flower, “Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas as their song and baby blue and silver as their colors. “Life brings tears, smiles and memories, and the tears will dry, the smiles will fade, but the memories will last forever” is a favorite saying.
