(Fort Washakie, WY) – Ft. Washakie High School had it’s graduation ceremony on Saturday, May 15th, after a morning parade. Any graduation is a time to celebrate, but this year especially so with the largest graduating class in Ft. Washakie High School history.
“It hasn’t hit me yet,” was the fitting senior graduation motto, and before the grads knew it, the Richard Pogue Post #81 had commenced with the carrying of the flags and the Ft. Washakie Ramblerz had begun the Flag Song and Graduate March.
After a prayer invocation from Arlen Shoyo, Assistant Principal Tammy Snyder addressed the crowd. She introduced administrators and board members, then beamed about the accomplishments of this year’s seniors.
Graduation speaker Mike Read was then brought out to address students, offering congratulations and advice. “Even if you have no idea what your next path will be, surge toward something of importance to you,” he encouraged seniors.
After that, it was time for speeches from the Co-Salutatorian Seth Aragon, and Valedictorian Larami Azure, who both congratulated a class that has had to put up with a lot of hardships this year.
Once the speeches were done it was time to collect diplomas.
The Fort Washakie Ramblerz then finished things up with an Honor Song to see the graduates off to the next stage in their lives.
