Seniors say goodbye to EHS.

On a cloudy day that threatened rain, Eaton High School celebrated its 119th annual graduation ceremony on Sunday, May 19. EHS bands played “Pomp and Circumstance” by Edward Elgar. and “With Each Sunset (Comes the Promise of a New Day)” by Richard Saucedo. The Troubadours sang “The Star-Spangled Banner”, which was accompanied by American Legion Post 26’s Presentation of Colors, and “I Believe” by S. B. Boersma and D. Lantz.

Ayush Adikhari gave the Valedictorian speech for the class of 2019 (in which he realized his lack of public speech classes), followed by Jayce Parrish, the Salutatorian, who wished the seniors well in their journey after high school. Janae Jarnagin reminded the class of their silly antics they have engaged in throughout the years (John Stewart’s wanted mugshots all over the school being one of them), while Sydney Booth, Senior Class president, foreshadowed a great future for the seniors, along with announcing the turning of tassels and the cap-throwing.

Towards the end of commencement, the late Dallas Duran, who passed away his sophomore year, received an honorary degree from the school, and as the sun finally broke through the clouds, the students released balloons into the skies, as a tribute to him.
