Class of 2012 Graduates

The final graduating class of the current Clark County High School took their walk Sunday afternoon at Wilbur Feltner Field in a time honored rite of passage. The streamlined commencement ceremony featured student and faculty speakers and recognized Dot Sipe, a school cafeteria employee who earned her GED this year at the ageĀ  of 66. Superintendent Michael Murphy presented her with an honorary diploma which drew a standing ovation from the graduates.

Congratulations to the class of 2012.

      They were respectful when they did it all too, they did it between speakers!

    I thought the whole ceremony was really nice – a nice day, good speakers and graduates and great weather.
    The question I have though is – what is the deal with the shephard’s crooks? Is that steeped in Clarke County tradition? We had family in from out of town (who’d seen a graduation or two in their day back in the middle of the country) and they were asking…and I found I had no answers. Would some “old timer” provide a bit of backstory on the shephard’s crook part of the ceremony.

    Thanks – and Good Luck to Class of 2012.

      Shepards Crooks have been a part of graduation since before I graduated in ’59 — perhaps another “Old Timer” (ha, ha) can enlighten us.

    So glad the students (for the most part) acted like mature young adults ready to take on the world and did not play with their toys during the speakers or the presentation of diplomas. I understand Dr. Jackson emphasized this during the year, and it seems to have worked. Finally!
