Northwest Christian Schools will graduate 47 students in a unique ceremony on Saturday, June 2nd, at 1:00 p.m. at the Activity Center at the Upper Campus in Colbert.

The members of the class of 2018 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 9 valedictorians for the NWC class of 2018.They are, Tessa Cook, Courtney Cossette, Caleb Crary, Elizabeth Frey, Mercy Huseland, Joon Lee, Elizabeth Roberts, Tyler Shea, and Keilah Smith.    Each valedictorian will give a short speech or have a special part in the ceremony.

Seven graduating seniors will be recognized as 13-year students–a special honor reserved for those who have attended Northwest Christian since kindergarten. Four graduates will be recognized as 12-year seniors, who have attended the school since first grade.

Over 27 seniors are leaving Northwest Christian with combined scholarships totaling over $530,000. We are also proud of 8 student athletes continuing their athletic career into collegiate athletics.
