Tigers turn corner on graduation day

Summit Daily/Kristin Skvorc

FARMER’S KORNER – Saturday morning marked the official end of an era for Summit High’s class of 2006. The school’s gymnasium was filled with cheering friends and family as this year’s seniors mounted the dais one-by-one to receive their high school diplomas.

Proud parents, smiling grandmothers and bored younger siblings were among those assembled on the gym floor to listen to the SHS orchestra play “Pomp and Circumstance” as 165 young people entered in their green and white robes.

Speeches were given, photographs were taken and the graduates were variously advised to “challenge authority,” “believe in yourselves” and “have a backup plan.”

Every graduate received a rose as they walked out of the gym for the last time – to give to the person who supported them most during their education.
