One hundred and forty six students said goodbye to their middle school years on Friday, May 22, as the annual 8th Grade Graduation ceremony was held at ECHS. The gym was full of parents, grandparents, family, and friends as Principal Brandon Prunty addressed the crowd and distributed awards and diplomas at the gathering.
After Mr. Prunty welcomed everyone in attendance, the crowd was led by student Jack Burton in the Pledge of Allegiance. Madison Doyle then sang Carrie Underwood's popular hit, "Whenever You Remember."
Logan Hagan was the proud recipient of "Student of the Year" honors, an award that not only recognizes academics, but attitude and overall work ethic as well. Eli Ruth was recognized for having perfect attendance not only this year, but all the way back to kindergarten. Student Council President Chanley Logsdon delivered the presidential address.
