Northwest Christian Schools will graduate 51 students in a unique ceremony on Saturday, June 6th, at 1:00 p.m. at the Activity Center at the Upper Campus in Colbert.
The members of the class of 2015 will follow Northwest Christian tradition in participating in the graduation ribbon cutting ceremony. They’ll stand together in their caps and gowns, united by a portion of a long, wide yellow ribbon. When each student’s name is called, a video presentation of their life appears on a screen. Then the ribbon that unites them is cut, a poignant symbol that the graduate is now ready to leave school and go out into the world.
There are six valedictorians for the NWC class of 2015. They are Abigail Graham, who will attend Belmont University in Nashville, TN; Christopher Wray (Whitworth University);
Ben Alford (United States Naval Academy); Michaela Wilson (Spokane Falls Community College and Global Ministries to Guatemala); Kendra Kilpatrick (Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, CA); and Rebecca Butler (Seattle Pacific University). Each valedictorian will give a short speech or have a special part in the ceremony.
Eleven graduating seniors will be recognized as 13-year students–a special honor reserved for those who have attended Northwest Christian since kindergarten.
