More than 2,000 people packed the Centralia High School gymnasium the afternoon of May 12.

Superintendent Darin Ford, giving his last address in that capacity before his retirement next month congratulated the students and recited what he called their record-breaking scholarship accomplishments.

“Eighty-three percent of the class of 2019 plan to attend a post-secondary education program.
