  • On a perfect Sunday afternoon, 87 students received their diplomas from St. James High School during the 2013 graduation ceremony in the high school gym.
        In front of a large crowd of parents, family and friends, the seniors entered to Pomp and Circumstance performed by the St. James High School Band.
        Welcoming comments were given by St. James School District Superintendent Becky Cselovszki. High School Principal Ted Simon introduced the student speakers. That senior speech was shared by Liana Tonsager and Emily Hurley.
        Senior Adam Bruton performed a composition of his own named Memories. The concert band and the concert choir also performed with the soon to graduate seniors participating in their final musical performances as St. James High School students.
        One of the highlights was the slide show presentation of the graduating students as infants and small children and then shown as the graduating seniors they had become.
        The presentation of the diplomas commenced with the diplomas being handed out by the St. James Board of Education. Activities Director Les Zellmann handed out senior activity plaques and honorary awards.
        Then Principal Simon dismissed the graduates, they tossed their caps into the air and they marched outside to the front lawn of the high school where they lingered with family and friends for one last time as the class of 2013.
        The calm, crystal clear weather made it perfect for many of the graduates who seemed as if they wanted to stay on the school grounds awhile longer.
        They would be alumni the next time they returned to the school grounds, so why not stay longer on a sun splashed afternoon and cherish this important passage in life.
