Ballard Celebrates Graduation
Ballard celebrated graduation Sunday in the high school gymnasium. “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities,” was the chosen class motto from J.K. Rowling.
With red and white carnations, the 117 graduates took part in commencement.
Seven students were named as valedictorians: Olivia Astarita, Jenny Huxford, Nicole Kling, Abigail Kohut-Jackson, Hannah Larsen, Meredith Ossian and Darrian Ward.
More awards will be forthcoming from the school for a future issue of the Times. The newspaper thanks the parents and other community members who helped us compile these photos at the last minute after our hired freelancer didn’t get there. We very much appreciate the assistance!
