Northwest Christian Schools will graduate 52 students in a unique ceremony on Saturday, June 7th, at 1:00 p.m. at the Activity Center at the Upper Campus in Colbert.
The members of the Class of 2014 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 four valedictorians for the NWC class of 2014. They are Phillip Bax, who will attend Whitworth University; Jonathan Morris (Western Washington University); Amy Penaskovic (Carroll College); and Matthew Salzano (Pacific Lutheran University). Each valedictorian will give a short speech or have a part in the ceremony.
Ten graduating seniors will be recognized as 13-year students–a special honor reserved for those who have attended Northwest Christian since kindergarten.
