Plattsmouth seniors celebrate graduation | News
“As we start this next chapter in our lives, we need to hold on to our dreams and run straight towards them.”
Four seniors displayed their musical talents throughout the ceremony. Gracey Simms delivered the national anthem for the crowd, and Sarah Schreiber sang “Light In the Sky” while strumming a ukulele. Kira Leget and Kayla Harvey teamed up for a vocal duet entitled “For Good.” All four Blue Devils secured many awards for their singing skills during their PHS careers.
The final portion of the ceremony featured the presentation of diplomas and recognition of honor graduates. Students rose from their blue chairs on the stadium turf and walked near the track to pick up their diplomas from a small table. They then gave elbow bumps to PHS Principal Todd Halvorsen and Superintendent Dr. Richard Hasty instead of the traditional handshake.
Chappell, Rathman, Sabatka, Schroeder, Sedlak and Wiseman earned high honors for their academic work. All six students achieved cumulative 4.0 grade point averages at PHS. The classmates were inducted into the PHS Hall of Fame earlier this spring for their achievements.
School officials recognized 33 seniors as honor graduates. The Blue Devils earned this distinction by compiling cumulative grade point averages of 3.50-3.99.
Honor graduates included Caleb Anderson, Kaycee Bancroft, Kelsey Blinston, Alyssa Bock, Ryleigh Briggs, Jenna Clark, Chandler Cole, Joseph Cole, Makayla Cook, Ethan Copeland, Morgan Corns, Jackson Glup, Stockton Graham, Calix Grant-Ozuna, Kayla Harvey, Sydni Haugaard, Abigayl Henne, Easton Hoschar, Kaitlyn Konkler, Kobi Lamb, Caleb Laney, Kira Leget, Jeremiah Lubben, Emily Martin, Renae Mixan, Madison Nelson, Sydney Nelson, Isaac Peterson, Wesley Phillipson, Andrew Rathman, Sarah Schreiber, Hunter Smith and Regan Warrick.
