Number of Graduates:
4 seniors
10 eighth graders
8 kindergartners

The Rev. Steve Delph spoke on Opportunity 101

What the speaker said:
Opportunity will be there for these seniors. You need to know what to do with each opportunity.

You will not get saved at your convenience. When the opportunity for salvation is made available to you, you need to take it.

What are you going to do with the opportunities God gives you seniors?

What the graduates said:
This is not the end but the beginning. Remember that each day is a gift and not a given right.
-Alisha Lyons, valedictorian

This is finally the end of our high school journey. Our real journey in this world is just beginning.
-Kasey Umstead, salutatorian

What got the most laughs:
What can I say about Mr. Tucker? He had his good days and his ill days.
-Kasey Umstead, salutatorian

What the graduates did:
Kindergarten graduates sang a number of songs focused around the theme Gods Little People. They also recited Bible verses and the ABCs of salvation.

Eighth grade graduates provided a program entitled Make a Difference Touch the World. For a class project, they went out into the community to minister to people with their program revolving around that project.

Senior graduates put together a slide show of pictures of themselves and their families instead of singing, saying that they were not great singers. They also each presented their parents with a gift.

Jack and Linda Hodge approached the school about setting up a scholarship fund and were the first to contribute to it. Alisha Lyons was announced as this years recipient.
