The 2019 Edmonson County Middle School graduation was held today at ECHS where 151 8th grade students were recognized.
Principal Brandon Prunty led today's program which featured dozens of students receiving academic, athletic, school organization, attendance, and character awards, given out by Counselor Kelly Rich.
Brody Johnson was awarded Student of the Year and students Grant Meredith and Jonas Miller each gave Student Council Presidential addresses.
Student Xander Adamson led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance as the the program begun and although student Alyssa Doyle prepared an original song to perform to the class, it was scratched due to a last-minute case of laryngitis.
Principal Prunty and Superintendent Patrick Waddell presented middle school diplomas to each student to conclude today's program.
