This weekend, thousands of high school seniors from schools around Lee County earned the honor of walking across the stage to cheers and applause from friends, family, and peers, during graduation ceremonies across the county.
For some, it’s a stepping off point as they enter the workforce with trade skills they learned in school. For others, the next move is college, technical school, or the armed forces.
But for every student that took the stage this weekend, the sound of their name being called, as they walked the stage in front of crowds thousands strong, it represented the culmination of years and years of hard work.
