Sunday Terre Haute North, South and West Vigo High Schools said goodbye to their 2018 seniors, all in their own unique way.
First up were the Vikings of West Vigo, who took time to say the Lord’s Prayer and honored graduates with a memorial video.
“Glad to graduate, it was awesome, it was great to see all of our friends in caps and gowns,” West Terre Haute grads said. “Yeah it was exciting and we graduated. Just glad to graduate. We are out of here, we made it.”
Across the county at the Hulman Center the North Patriots celebrated their diverse class by celebrating a classic game, the rubik’s cube.
“You know making these final memories and moments and then going off into the real world,” Kaylie Fisher said.
“I’m excited but nervous and I mean I think that goes with a lot of this stuff,” Glenn Floyd said. “I’m excited to see what’s new and continue my life.
“I’m pretty excited for my future you know? I’m going to be a teacher and I love that,” Nathan Foxworthy said. “And I’m just really excited to see where God takes me and my future because it’s going to be awesome. I’m really really excited, really really excited.
“I’m so ready to graduate and get out of Terre Haute it’s a life dream of mine,” Rebekah Johnson said.
“Pretty much the same, ready to go,” Kendra Hunt said.
And last but not least the Braves of the Terre Haute South closed the day by honoring one of their own.
Garrett Sands shot and killed at a party in march, his family walked across the stage in his place to accept his diploma.
The day was also bitter sweet for long time Superintendent Danny Tanoos, as he attended his final graduations.
His message the same for all.
“I want to give many thanks as I began to walk off the stage for the last time and say thank you,” Danny Tanoos said.
3 different schools sending young Hautians off into the world.
Leaving them with the message go chase your dreams knowing you can always come back home.
West is the Best! Go North! Go South!
Whether it’s going off to college in the fall, serving in the military or going on to the workforce, the graduates of 2018 are bound to leave a mark.
Congratulations to all the graduates.
