14 South Barber students experienced the most unique
graduation ceremony ever seen.
Schools get creative when it comes to commencement

Some say we’ve gotten inventive, and others say we’ve gone back to the
traditions of the good ol days, either way, it’s good. Our community
schools have had their hands tied and that has led us to some very
unique opportunities and events.
South Barber sucessfully celebrated graduation last week in a very
expressive fashion. Each senior had a golf cart adorned in a special way
to fit their personality, driven down Main Street by their parents. They
also sported a large photograph poster of their senior picture. A couple
hundred people joyously lined the streets to celebrate with them.
A couple of weeks ago, Medicine Lodge seniors enjoyed a parade around
the square in the same sort of strategy. Each one was in a vehicle of
their family’s choosing, embellished with posters, streamers, and all
kinds of fun. Senior Devon Cox said, “It was amazing, we expected to see
people on Main Street, but they were lined up around the entire square”.
Both districts proudly have two students who have either reported to
military training or headed there shortly. These celebrations were
essential to include these special young men and women. It’s agreed
across the county by students and parents, these moments need to become
new traditions. There is most always a silver lining behind every cloud.
