Commencement this Sunday for LqPV class of 2017

Graduation ceremonies for 47 members of the Lac qui Parle Valley High School class of 2017 will be held Sunday, May 28. Commencement is held in the gym and begins at 1:00 p.m.

The LqPV High School Band will begin the ceremony playing the processional, “Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1”. The band will also play the “Star Spangled Banner” at the beginning of the program, perform “High School Musical,” and provide the recessional, “Rondeau.” Band director is Nichole Markworth.

Directed by Chad Felton, the Concert Choir will perform “Homeward Bound.”

Providing the welcome is senior class member Shannon Busse. Student addresses will be given by Anne Kennedy and Taniah Tosel, also members of the senior class. The speakers will be introduced by LqPVHS Principal Scott Sawatzky. He will also introduce the class’ valedictorian and salutatorian.

Following a “Senior Memories” slide presentation, Principal Sawatzky will present the class of 2017 for their diplomas. Awarding the diplomas will be LqPV Board of Education Members Scott Conn and Earl Molden, and Interim Superintendent Larry Peterson.

Principal Sawatzky will make the closing remarks.

The class of 2017’s motto is: “Yesterday is over. Tomorrow won’t delay. We’ll walk together through this world, each in our own way.” Class colors are gold and white, and the class flower is the white gold tipped rose.

Most of the graduating seniors will celebrate with open houses at their home or some other public facility. Open house ads can be found on page 5 of this issue of The Appleton Press.
