James River High School graduated 106 on the football field Thursday evening June 7. School Superintendent Dr. Tony Brads described the JRHS Class of 2012 grads into future plans 2 going to Armed Services, 18 to the workplace, 43 to two year colleges and 43 to four year colleges.
Class President Lauren Berra welcomed the guests to the ceremony while SCA President Stacey Hogan recounted school memories.
Valedictorian Kaleb Cahoon, who is headed to Virginia Western for General Studies, brought laughter and smiles from the grads and crowd of well wishers. He made sure the course of school years was memorable in a “Hide and Seek” theme finishing with an instruction to the world, “Ready or not, here we come!”
Salutatorian Shane Hill will be attending Liberty University with a major in Biblical studies. He listed memories of the senior year in anticipation of the future. Two musical events from grads were noteworthy. Jessica Kidd sang the National Anthem and Ashley Cummings “Don’t Forget to Remember Me.”
The JRHS Chorus and Band participated in the event as well. Then with a few remarks about graduation, Principal Jamie Talbott and Assistant Principla Mike Ketron announced the graduates. A beautiful night on the field ended with the Class of 2012 tossing caps and silly string galore. Now it’s time to move on to their wonderful lives.
