As the time struck 2:30 on May 19, 34 seniors filed into the Trego Community High School new gym to leave an old chapter in life behind and to start writing a new one.

The seniors marched in to “Pomp & Circumstance” played by Kathy Jamison, and the audience was then welcomed by the class president Janae Huxman. Next, seniors presented white roses tipped in purple to their parents as “Five More Minutes” by Scotty McCreery played in the background.

After this tearful moment, Sage Dinkel presented the speaker, Judy Long, who reminded the students about the importance of respect, not only for others but also for themselves.

The commencement address was followed by a message from Santa and the senior slideshow, created by Mandie Kinderknecht. More tears followed as the senior choir members sang “Graduation Medley” recorded by Anthem Lights.

Finally, the moment that everyone was waiting for arrived, and Principal Shea Rothchild presented the class. As Carl Mohler read each senior’s name, the seniors were presented with their diplomas by board members Jason Dinkel, Dawn Howard, Dale Pfannenstiel, and Lee Sells.

As Jamison played the recessional, the seniors threw up their mortarboards and continued to celebrate their way to the south sidewalk for a receiving line.

Graduates, family, and friends gathered in the auditorium on May 16 for the annual Evening of Excellence.

Before the start of the awards ceremony, people were invited to walk through the library, the old gym, and the art from to view the students’ FACS projects, woods projects, and art work.

Lori Dietz, the art teacher, had all 43 of her students present any project of their choice or one that had been entered in an art show. FACS teacher, Liz Deines had her clothing class present their quilts and other sewing projects, and a variety of woods projects, ranging from shelves to tables, were displayed by Carl Mohler’s woods students.

At the awards ceremony, seniors took their place at the front of the auditorium as guests of honor. Winners of local scholarships and awards were announced. To view recipients, click here.

Following the awards ceremony, the TCHS choir performed “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and “God Bless the USA.” Next, the Girls’ and Boys’ Ensembles each performed.  They were followed by the Mixed Ensemble singing “Heaven’s Gate.”
