On Saturday morning, 70 students received their diplomas, officially marking the end of their four years at Lennox High School. All of the graduates wore black caps and gowns; the girls added white sashes and the boys had orange. The class selected the orange rose as their class flower.
The ceremony began with a processional by the high school band followed by a welcome from the Senior Class President Nathan Timmerman.
Timmerman thanked their high school principal Tim Raabe for all he had done for their class and the high school. He presented him with a special plaque. This was Raabe’s last graduation, as he is retiring from the Lennox School District.
Superintendent Kirk Easton then introduced the speakers—Class Valedictorian Samantha Hyronimus and Salutatorian Karisa Hagena.
As has become tradition for the classes at LHS, the students then presented roses to special people in their lives before heading to the stage for their diplomas.
