Grads ‘turn Shakespeare tragedies into comedy’

Dale ThompsonOf the Record staff

The 59 graduates at North Summit High School have left their mark on the district.

"Only you can turn Shakespeare tragedies into comedy," teacher Nancy Bates told them.

She added how much she loved them and said they taught her tolerance and acceptance.

"Just imagine what a great time this is to let your goals, your dreams raise to great heights," she said.

Bates also offered a few words of advice.

"Structure your life so that if you’re going to skate on thin ice you may as well dance," she said.

Before presenting the graduates Principal Jerre Holmes said they should strive for the reward that comes with the satisfaction of giving back to the community and be like the man who has worked his heart out and lies down exhausted knowing he has done his very best.

"You have been an outstanding class and I thank you for your contribution to this high school," he said. "Most importantly, I thank you for being you."

Jana Ross, a school board member, accepted the graduates and advised them not to let the world change them and instead to change the world.

The graduation was broadcast on local channel 38 for friends and family that wanted to watch the ceremony from home.
