The Cherokee County School District last week held its annual summer high school graduation ceremony for students who recently completed graduation requirements.
The ceremony was held on Friday, June 27, at Woodstock High School, with 14 of the 22 new graduates participating.
Cherokee County School Board member Patsy Jordan delivered the commencement address, and graduates were congratulated by Jordan and Assistant Superintendent Bill Sebring.
Teacher Susan Greene, who taught many of the students through the Polaris Evening Program and High School Summer School program, also gave an inspirational speech.
The majority of the students will be continuing their education at a university or technical college or joining a branch of service in the U.S. Military.
“Parents and family members were beaming with pride and shedding happy tears as the tassels were turned by the graduates,” Ms. Jordan said.
