The Edmonson County High School Class of 2022 graduated today, May 28, 2022 in the ECHS gym.
Meredith Hennion was named valedictorian, and will be continuing her education at Morehead State University majoring in nursing. Lainey Alexander was named salutatorian and will be attending Western Kentucky University as an accounting major.
Principal Jonathan Williams first welcomed the crowd, which was the largest it has been the last few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Class president Macy Cassady then gave opening remarks.
There were two special performances today. Amelia Allen played a medley of "Bach Cello Suites" on her cello, and Alyssa Lindsey sang "You're Gonna Miss This" as her father played the guitar.
Guidance Counselors Kevan Alford and Kori Skaggs recognized students with special achievements, and assistant principal Nikki Culbreth recognized students who were wearing special cords for various clubs and extra curricular activities.
Superintendent Brian Alexander handed each senior their diplomas, and then Noah Parsley gave the closing prayer.
Principal Williams then instructed the class to turn their tassels and toss their caps, and then they were dismissed.
