Clearwater graduation set for Saturday


They survived a global pandemic and spent the final quarter of their high school career learning via virtual technology.

On Saturday, at 1 p.m., 10 Clearwater seniors will walk across a stage in the school's gymnasium and receive their diplomas, the last Clearwater Public Schools class to note the distinction.

Kierra Bearinger, Lauren Behnk, Taylor Ann Bolling, Taylor Rose Bolling, Trenton Fletcher, Zach Hoffman, Tyler Hupp, James Kester, Brooke Knievel and Jackie Olivan will receive diplomas.

The group selected red and gray as their class colors, with a white rose selected as class flower.

An Abraham Lincoln quote was chosen as class motto: "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

Principal Mike Sanne said Phase II directed health measures will be followed, including a limit of 25% capacity of the gym, which allows 200 people.

Social distancing measures will be in effect.

The ceremony will be as traditional as possible, although several exceptions will be in place.

Handshakes will not be allowed during distribution of diplomas. No receiving line will be in place following the ceremony.

Commencement exercises will be livestreamed on the Summerland Advocate-Messenger Facebook page.
