Graduation set for Saturday

Ron Burtz

Fifty-seven Custer High School seniors are expected to cross the stage and be handed their diplomas on Saturday at the Armory. Among those graduates will be this year’s two foreign exchange students, hailing from the Czech Republic and Italy. Graduating senior Ethan Lappe will not be walking with his class because he has already begun his service with the U.S. Marine Corps. Commencement exercises for the Class of 2022 are set to begin at 2 p.m.
Previous Custer High School graduate and current fifth grade teacher at Custer Elementary, Isaac Parsons, will be the commencement speaker.
Floor seating in the Armory will be limited to those holding purple tickets. Each graduate will receive five such tickets and, if the graduate has two primary households, the tickets will be split between those households. If the student has a primary and secondary household, the tickets will all be sent to the primary and they will need to be distributed among the households. Guests without a ticket may sit in the bleachers. For those who are unable to attend in person, the event will be broadcast live on via the internet.
The class colors are gold, silver and black and the flower is a yellow tulip. The class song is “Good Old Days.”
The seniors’ last day of school was Thursday but they will be kept busy this week leading up to the big day. On Wednesday they will meet at the high school at 9:30 a.m. to put on their robes and caps before doing a walkthrough of the elementary school. Then they will proceed to the Armory for graduation practice followed by a lunch provided by the student council. Students are expected to stay and help decorate the auditorium.
