End of an era for Fernie Academy students

The Fernie Academy's largest graduating class to date celebrated the end of their high school careers last Thursday.

Twelve beaming students collected their diplomas, along with an impressive amount of scholarships and bursaries, outside the Fernie Courthouse. Speeches were made by Head of School Jocelyn Sombrowski, Board Member Ingrid Sombrowski, Fernie Mayor Mary Giuliano, Fernie Rotary member Randal Macnair and teacher Liza Tosh. Valedictorian Liam Hardy was reluctant to give up his title of 'new kid' at the Academy, but was happy to assure his fellow students that they would all be 'new kids' this fall.
