It was a sultry and packed house, Sunday afternoon at Centralia High School.
That is when friends, parents, faculty, staff and school board members bid farewell, good luck and God speed to the 88
members of the Centralia R-VI School District’s class of 2018.
After R-VI Superintendent Darin Ford complimented the class on their success in setting a new record for scholarships: “Sixty eight percent of the class of 2018 plan to attend a post-secondary education program.” Ford said. “Of this group, 12 percent plan to attend a career or technical school; 38 percent plan to attend a community college in the fall; and the remaining 50 percent plan to continue their education at a four year college or university. Additionally, nine of this year’s graduates plan to serve our country in a branch of the military.”
