BCHS to graduate 378 in ceremony Saturday

Posted

Bradley Central High School is getting ready to see off 378 of its seniors as they graduate from the school this weekend.

The school’s 101st commencement is scheduled for Saturday at 9 a.m. in Bear Stadium, the school’s football venue.

School officials say they are keeping a close eye on the weather, however. In the event of rain, the graduation will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at North Cleveland Church of God.

With 378 graduates, Bradley Central has a dozen fewer students receiving diplomas this year. Still, Principal Todd Shoemaker points out there are plenty of reasons to be proud.

“The Class of 2017 is a great group of students who worked very hard during the last four years,” Shoemaker said. “We are very proud of the accomplishments that they achieved during their time at Bradley Central High School.” 

Among those being honored during the commencement will be the valedictorian and salutatorian. Both will be addressing their fellow graduates.

This year’s valedictorian is Sarah Milliron, and this year’s salutatorian is Amanda McKinney. Both have been recognized as high-achieving students who have contributed much to Bradley Central’s campus life.

Senior class representative Cade Baker will also have the honor of speaking at graduation.

As the graduates of the Class of 2017 prepare to join the local workforce, Shoemaker pointed out that the community is in good hands.

“I believe that these young men and women will do some great things in life,” Shoemaker said. “Our future is very bright in Bradley County with the type of leaders that we see graduating from our local schools.”
