School’s out forever

Mt. Vernon seniors Dominic Dawson and Jaylee Presnall beam as they joyfully rush down the aisle at Mt. Vernon High School’s graduation Friday, May 20. School officials were forced to move the ceremony indoors due to possible inclement weather, but the change of venue definitely didn’t dampen the graduates’ spirits.

Miller senior Garrett Neuenschwander excitedly captures Miller’s graduation ceremony Sunday, May 22, from a unique perspective as he prepares to give a speech at the beginning of the event.

Miller’s valedictorian, Claudia Hadlock and salutatorian Ashten Kingsley, can’t contain their delight as they file down the aisle following the Cardinals’ ceremony.

Per a longstanding tradition at Mt. Vernon High School, students decorate their mortar boards, often times with future plans or Bible verses. (Photos by Kaleena Ricketts)
