Hats off to the Class of 2014
With the last bell at Screven County High School during the afternoon of May 23, principal Brett Warren added something extra -- Alice Cooper’s song “School’s Out.”
While it may be out for the summer for some, for others it may be out all together.
Not everyone will be attending school in Screven County next year.
A total of 140 seniors, including 40 with honors, graduated Friday night in a ceremony at Kelly Memorial Stadium.
Some will head into the workforce, some to college and some to technical school.
The theme for the commencement was an appropriate “Don’t Blink.” The high school years go by very quickly.
Salutatorian Mallorie Boswell said Screven County High has provided the graduating class with precious memories that will be cherished
Boswell reminded the graduates to be thankful to all those who helped them reach this point.
“Look for the good in every day,” Boswell said.
Valedictorian Zachary Weaver told the capacity crowd that he could remember when he and his twin brother Daniel, also an honor graduate, entered prek.
Weaver said his brother questioned whether a lady in a room could him listen and learn.
But Daniel and Zachary did learn and they learned a lot. That helped them reach this moment in their lives.
“Don’t blink you might just miss something,” Zachary Weaver said.
SCHS principal Brett Warren will become the elementary school principal in 2013-2014. Becky Martin is retiring this year.
As of the Sylvania Telephone’s press time, a new principal has not been officially named for the high school.
A called school board meeting is scheduled for Friday morning.
