This past Saturday, the 2014 seniors participated in graduation ceremonies at the E. L. Kirk Gymnasium. The ceremony started at 10:00 AM. Parents, grandparents, and other relatives and friends came out to honor the graduating seniors. In addition, the Eustace ISD Board of Trustees were present along with administrators, teachers, and other staff members.
Walter Baker provided the salutatorian speech and Ridge Smith provided the valedictory speech. Virgil Crow, teacher and coach at EHS, gave the graduation speech. Students receiving scholarships were recognized. Currently, the Class of 2014 has received over $975,000 in scholarships and grants.
Congratulations to the Class of 2014!
I want to thank Jack Wallace and all of our maintenance employees for working throughout last week to prepare the gym and grounds for graduation. Also, I want to thank all of the High School staff for preparing all of the details that go into a graduation. Finally, a special thank you to all of the parents, grandparents, and other friends and relatives that were in attendance.
