Sunday afternoon Tea Area High School held the 14th annual commencement ceremony for the School District. One hundred and three graduates from Tea Area High School Class of 2017 were honored.
Collin Knudson High School Principal said, “Let us celebrate the accomplishments of every student who walks across the stage today and receives a Tea Area High School diploma. Each student has committed many years to learn, persevere, grow, and achieve the honor of becoming a Titan graduate. These students have earned our respect and admiration.”
During the ceremony those in attendance heard from former TAHS teacher John Nolte, as well as from the Valedictorian Avery Schupner and Salutatorian Sidney Clayberg. Special music was also provided by the TAHS band and concert choir.
One of the touching moments in the ceremony came as graduating seniors presented roses to their loved ones
