Congratulations Class of 2018!

On a beautiful Saturday morning, hundreds of people gathered to honor Jefferson County High School’s 2018 Graduates at Walter’s State Expo Center in White Pine.

The graduating seniors, 433 strong, filed in to the familiar sound of “Pomp and Circumstance” to be recognized by the community for their hard work and accomplishments.

Eimy Quiroz welcomed everyone to the Fourty-Second Commencement, with Austin Ramey providing the Invocation.  Alexis Stone showed off her vocals one last time, performing “The Distance”, originally sang by Michael Bolton.   The Patriot Singers performed a wonderful version of “I Lived” by One Republic, featuring solos by Grace Lee and Trevor Smith.

Brant Adams and Clay Woods stood before their classmates, addressing them with memories and some words of wisdom.

The Jefferson County Class of 2018 has seen its share of change, but is taking it all in stride, walking away with over 300 of them being honored and recognized with awards at honor’s night. 113 of these students have graduated with State Honors, with 67 of them graduating with State Distinction.  Countless numbers of the graduates have graduated Summa Cum Laude or Magna Cum Laude, and many are members of National Honors Society.  With millions of dollars awarded in scholarships, the Class of 2018 looks to have a bright future ahead.

The Jefferson County Post would like to congratulate the Class of 2018.  In the words of the song performed by the Patriot Singers: “Hope when you take that jump, you don’t fear the fall”.  Good luck in your bright future!
