Elkford secondary students celebrate at commencement

Elkford secondary students celebrated the end of an era on Thursday.

Each of the 28 students who made up the grad class of 2014 proudly walked across the stage during the morning's commencement ceremony. Following speeches by Principal Keith Regular, Elkford Mayor Dean McKerracher, School Board Trustee Frank Lento and District Superintendent Lynn Hauptman, scholarships and bursaries were presented to many of the hardworking students. Valedictorian Logan McCracken gave a heartwarming address to his fellow students and wished them all good luck in the future.
