Concordia High School Class of 2019 holds commencement ceremony
Their motto for the year was “Too Legit to Quit” — and the Concordia High School Class of 2019 proved that to be true as 31 classmates received diplomas at a commencement ceremony held Friday, May 10, at CHS.
Following a welcome from CHS principal Luke Lewis, attendees were treated to special music from the CHS and Junior High School Choir, who sang “Turning the Page” by Tim Hayden. The senior address was then presented by class Valedictorian Alexis Borgstadt and class Salutatorian Jacey Smith, who spoke about memories shared between themselves and their classmates. The senior address was followed by the Concordia High School Band playing their rendition of “Last Ride of the Pony Express” by David Shaffer.
Scholarships were then presented by school counselor Leslie Basye, followed by the presentation of diplomas by Concordia R-2 Board of Education President Alan Deatherage.
Following the distribution of roses and a time of farewell, Lewis presented the class of 2019 to commencement attendees.
